Eid al-Adha, also called the Feast of Sacrifice or Bakr-Eid, is the second of two religious holidays celebrated by Muslims worldwide each year.
New Jersey Muslims went ballistic after the school board denied their request to shut down the schools for Eid on such short notice. The school board refused to inconvenience 5-10,000 parents with 6 days’ notice.
“Their real concerns were the impact it would have on some of these families (who need childcare)… We have a high-poverty community. Many of our parents have jobs where if they won’t go to work they don’t get paid.”
But the Muslims were unmoved. Screw the poor.
