Learning nothing from history

You’ve got to hand it to New York City, they suffered horrific losses at the hands of Muslim terrorists on 9/11, and here we are 12 short years later and none of the lessons learned on that day have stuck. New York is embracing Islam, and with it Sharia Law.

The Blaze: Public schools in New York, the biggest city in the U.S., might institute days off on certain Muslim holy days, since both mayoral candidates vying for office say they support such a move.

Lessons From 9/11: Forgotten…or never learned?

Bill de Blasio, the Democratic candidate, and Joe Lhota, the Republican, have said Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha should be added to the holiday calendar along with other major religious observations, including Christmas, Good Friday, and Rosh Hashanah, the New York Daily News reports.

Eid al-Fitr celebrates the end of the month of Ramadan, which requires dawn-to-sunset fasting, and on this day the fast is broken; Eid al-Adha honors Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son. The Daily News notes that an estimated 13% of New York’s pupils are Muslim.

“The origins of this nation [are] people of many different faiths coming together,” de Blasio tells the Daily News. “That’s why we have to respect Muslim faiths by providing the Eid school holidays for children in our school system.”

Lhota agrees. “We have a growing Muslim community in the city of New York, and their religion needs to be respected as all other religions are respected,” Lhota notes to the Daily News, adding that the school calendar would make up for the additional two days off if the change is made. source – The Blaze

  • Pretty soon women in NY will have to wear those black sheets over their heads.

  • I THINK YOU ARE WRONG WE ARE CHRISTIAN IN THE CHRISTIAN IN AMERICA, WHAT YOU DOING SACRIFICING YOUR SON, THAT IS FIND AND DANDY FOR YOU, BUT JESUS, OUR GOD NAILED ON THE CROSS AND SUFFERED AND BLEED, SO WE MAY BE FREE, YES HE BLEED, AND HIS FLESH BECAME AS BLOOD. I DON’T SEE WHY JUST BECAUSE WE HAVE A MUSLIN PRESIDENT WE HAVE TO DO THINGS AGAINST OUR LAW. BUT ONE DAY YOU ALL THAT HAVE CAUSED ALL THIS STUFF JESUS IS GONNA TO HANDLE YOU, GOD SAID VENGAGE IS MINE SAITH THE LORD I WILL REPAY. I LOVE JESUS AND NI ONE CAN MAKE ME SAY DIFFERENT. IS ALL THIS STUFF WRITTEN THE TRUTH, THAT IS HARD TO BELIEVE

    • Because Abraham who was asked by God to sacrifice his son and whom God spared is the founding father of the Jewish religion and hence, Christianity You need to read your Bible. THESE ARE THE LAST DAYS JESUS SPOKE OF. All these things MUST occur since God said it would happen. Jesus IS coming soon. ALL need to test themselves to see if they are in the faith because All need to get right with God before Jesus comes and the door gets locked.

  • Why is that there is a bible-head affect going on here? We keep hearing about respect for other beliefs and religions when Christianity is being marginalized.

  • Should have said bobble-head shake the head up and down yes

  • I can respect anyone’s religion as long as they don’t try to force it on others. This isn’t rue of ISLAM. And what’s this non-sense about enforcing Sharia Law?? The law in the U.S. is the U.S. Constitution. Saying you’re going to enforce Sharia Law is saying you intend to overthrow the Government. I strongly suggest that you reconsider. You say you want respect for your religion: My religion says; all Muslims are supposed to put a knife to their own throat and do away with their own self. I know you don’t believe that way; but sense that’s what I believe; then that’s what you all are supposed to do. That’s fair. If you want me to respect your beliefs then you should respect mine.

  • I pray that Australia doesn’t follow the us in this. Would they do the same for the christian in their country??????

  • I understand NYC has already been allowing muslim students to pray to mecca 6x a day, or whatever. We can’t say Merry Christmas in R.Island and other states any more, but you watch how these spineless, gutless political panderers trip over their burkas to kiss muslim feet. — No crèches anywhere, but there will be signs directing everyone to mecca and that will, of course, not be a problem.
    Then . . . they will cancel Christmas for good, while imprisoning any of us who dare breathe the words Jesus Christ . . . even in our sleep! (and with all this new technology, they will hear us praying in our own homes.)

    “Come, Lord Jesus, Come!!!”

  • How can Americans be so blind and stupid????????

    • @C.A..
      That’s been my question for awhile. Why aren’t we as Christians standing for our belief?
      It’s to the point of being almost unbelievable.
      Who knows maybe New York City is Mystery Babylon,
      just saying.

    • It is because they don’t know the truth of God’s WORD. The Bible tells us that WISDOM comes from reading His WORD.
      So, I guess it is right to say, stupid is, as stupid does.

      Proverbs 14:16
      The wise fear the Lord and shun evil, but a fool is hotheaded and yet feels secure.

      Ecclesiastes 10:2
      The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.

  • More Holiday’s, more over time, how great Obama is to us?

  • Hmm, strange bed ‘buds’ – since when has Isaac & Ismael got cozy?! W/out a doubt whether they are of the Scottish Rite Zionist ‘free mason’ or just peasant’s all who descend from Esau will never bud up to any one of the 12 tribes chosen by God Himself – I truly believe the (occultist/free masons) plan to use the descendant’s of Ishmael to do the grunt work (you can do the figuring, how) then wipe there ‘nations’ off the map. One third of the Jews will come to Jesus, so will 1/3 of the Ishmaelite’s – I’m having second thought’s on who (or what) is ‘mystery Babylon’ I think not when it comes to the ambition’s of the late Saddem H – I believe the Church goes up and wrath comes to the traitor’s and all who love Babylon!
    The out right shaking of fist an blasphemy directed at us Christian’s (GOD) here lately will w’out any doubt bring His wrath upon all who get their kicks doing it!
    A decade ago the Lord gave me just a small taste of what it means when the ter-ror of the Lord is implemented, it’s horror!
    ? What if everyone wore the garb of the Sandies (burkas etc) while traveling by air!
    *note; I well known radio host said to those who attend the G-ment controlled churches to get out and join the Body of Christ (& get Saved) – I believe he’s right! – Everything will move at warp speed from here on out, Jesus is the only way out!!!

  • t

    Blah blah blah

  • I don’t care with which party these candidates are affiliated – they are both so LIEberal they are opening the door for the Muslims to begin demanding MORE! If you give them an inch, they DEMAND 10 MILES! Canada has let so many of them in, and tries to maintain a “multicultural” program, so the Muslims take full advantage, causing great unrest amongst REAL Canadians, and fear of what they will do next! They even want to fly their flags over city halls! They are completely intolerant of OUR customs! They are this way in every country they have emigrated to; look at England, France – all of Europe! They will NOT stop! The candidiates are FOOLS! The answer is simple: all the voters should write in: “NONE OF THE ABOVE”. That way, there would have to be another election! It would cost, but, with the Good Lord’s Grace, another candidate, with some patriotism, would run. He’d win in a landslide! God Bless America!

  • Dan 3:14 Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, do not ye serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up?
    Dan 3:15 Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?
    Dan 3:16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.
    Dan 3:17 If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
    Dan 3:18 But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
    Dan 3:19 Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated.
    Dan 3:20 And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace.
    Dan 3:21 Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.
    Dan 3:22 Therefore because the king’s commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
    Dan 3:23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.
    Dan 3:24 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king.
    Dan 3:25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

    • We will have to go thru the fiery trial, but Jesus will be there with us, to take us on home. Praise God!

  • they have chosen , let them burn
