So I am trying to look at a calendar: I don’t see Catholic Day, Judeism Day, Hindu Day, Buddha Day, Christian Day, Methodist Day!!
But in the State that Barack Obama was allegedly born in, September 24th will be designated as ISLAM DAY !!
Hawaii lawmakers back the creation of ‘Islam Day’
HONOLULU – Hawaii’s state Senate overwhelmingly approved a bill Wednesday to celebrate “ Day” — over the objections of a few lawmakers who said they didn’t want to honor a religion connected to Sept. 11, 2001.
The Senate’s two Republicans argued that a minority of Islamic extremists have killed many innocents in terrorist attacks.
“I recall around the world cheering the horrors of 9/11. That is the day all civilized people of all religions should remember,” said Sen. Fred Hemmings to the applause of more than 100 people gathered in the Senate to oppose a separate issue — same-sex civil unions.
The resolution to proclaim Sept. 24, 2009, as Islam Day passed the Senate on a 22-3 vote. It had previously passed the House.
As one of Hawaii’s legislators put it, in opposition to this measure:
“I don’t think there’s any country in the history of the world that has been more tolerant than the , and because of that tolerance, we’ve looked the other way a lot of times, and many thousands of our citizens have been killed by terrorists,” said Slom, a Republican.
Note: Is there any coincidence that the date of ISLAM DAYS falls during the ten day period of the “High Holy Days” of the Jewish faith, which begins with Rosh Hashanah and ends with Yom Kippur !
