How about a Jihad day ? or kill an infidel day?

This forced islamic integration is getting ridiculous.
You can't say merry Christmas anymore (happy Holiday in the U.S) but they deserve a day?




A legislative resolution designating Sept. 24 as "Islam Day" is generating criticism from mainland residents who say they will not travel to Hawaii because of it.

Let's check the rest of the sourced material:


Resolution author Rep. Lyla Berg, a Democrat from Hahaione Valley-Aina Haina, said it was meant to foster awareness of and education about Islam.

She notes that Hawaii recognizes similar dates, including those relating to Buddhism, Baha'i and Christianity.


OK, so why is learning something different wrong?

To the OP: *snip* You know very well that only the extremist Muslims fall under the categories you mentioned.

But I will point out this - why is Islam singled out? Why is there no "Hindu Day" mentioned, for example? If the point is to increase cultural awareness I would argue that there are just as many Hindus in this country as there are Muslims.

As far as I am aware, the Buddhists and baha'ist do not consider everybody else like infidels who do not deserve to live.

If they recognize other faiths with a "fill in your religion day" then why not Islam day?

I personly think that no religion should be given its own calender date of observance under the doctrine of seperation of chuch and state. Just my 2 cents.

Is that your take on all of Islam? I think if you took this day at its merit you may actually learn something. Seems like this day has merit.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

As with all threads, if a staffer is involved in a thread they don't moderate it.


As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

One solution to this would be to create 1 day on the calendar (like maybe December 32nd) that celebrates ALL religions...


It could be called "Tithe Day" or maybe "Zealots Day"...


That way, no one is offended or left out...

I agree with you, but I also think that to celebrate an Islam Day, less than two weeks after 911 is an odd choice for a date. Imagine if you were a relative of a victim, on a Monday 11th you mourn the anniversary of their death, and a thirteen days later on the 24th you're marking Islam day.

I know that a tiny minority are extremists, and not all Muslims hate the US, but I just think it's insensitive.

Am I wrong?

When Islam comes out of the middle ages, we will have something to talk about. I have a problem with any group that treats its goats better then its women.

How about let's not and say we did?

Silent Thunder,

Down with Ismaili cyclic gnosis and Qarmatian ontological hijinks; not at all down with the proliferation of politically correct "holidays."

We could have inferior non-beleiver day where all the kuffars,goys,heathens,blasphemers,heretics and infidels get together and
celebrate their unique non-cultness.

(I'm being perfectly serious)

And that's different from the Old Testament how? Btw, that's selective quoting. Have you read ALL of the Qu'ran?
