Under de Blasio, NYC schools to close for Islamic holy days

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

If they're going to give muslims a school holiday in New York City, why don't they do it right and make it "Holy Tuesday". That was the day selected for the World Trade Center attackers to do their jobs. We all know what date that was.

File this one under, "who's winning"...

By now, this should be becoming obvious...

Just wonderin':   Do NY schools close for Hannukah and Rosh Hashannah?  Helluva lot more Jews in New York than Muslims.
