Leaving Islam



No Muslim Holiday Classes Off: Univ Of Albany :

J. Grant Swank, Jr.


Now this is using sense and justice.

If I were in Iran or Saudi Arabia or Jordan , I would not stage a sit-in if a certain holiday I considered a holiday did not cancel university or college classes. I would take it as thatís the way things are in Iran or Saudi Arabia or Jordan . In other words, with courtesy, I would co-exist with a culture different from mine.

But when Muslims move into a culture other than theirs, they have a hissy fit. We have to put out the red carpet and make all sorts of changes for the Muslim newcomers. After all, they insist. After all, we are nice people. After all, they are going to get mad. After all, we are a people of manners. After all, they might blow up our buildings. After all, we donít like buildings blown up.

So we have discovered that in non-Muslim nations where Muslims move in there are all sorts of Muslim demands. For instance, the one in Britain is particularly Muslim brattish. Muslims demand that the religious symbolism in the British royal seals be eliminated. So there. Listen up. The Muslim discontents have spoken. And donít we all known that Prince Charles has let it be known that he is "fond" of Islam.

Now there is a self-censorship going on within the Netherlands and like neighboring countries. Why? Because the non-Muslims fear saying or doing anything that would disturb the Muslim immigrants. After all, artist Theo van Gogh had his neck slit open in broad daylight on a very public boulevard. Oh, and his torso was stabbed repeatedly. Why? Because he put out a film telling the truth about female Muslims being tortured and slain by Muslim males.

Further, when a high school near where I live had a few Muslim students show up, the school turned over a particular room as their prayer room. There was no prayer room afforded those of any other religion however. And when it came to Christmas there were no Christmas symbols or observances permitted. So it goes when a nation is scared out of its wits. Or, on the other hand, when certain citizens in free countries go nuts about being overly illogically polite to those who would take over the countries.

Therefore, it was encouraging to know that University of Albany President Kermit Hall did not go along with canceling classes on certain Muslim religious holidays at the Capital Region College . He cancelled out the idea that the Muslim holidays of Eid ul-Adha and Eid ul-Fitr should be days off from regular classes.

The usual religious holidays observed throughout America will continue to be days off for students and faculty, such including Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, according to the AP.
