Check this news release, if I'm lying I'm dying.  You can't make this stuff up.  What would the Hawaiians say if New York celebrated maybe a Japanese Day in honor of Japanese killed at Pearl Harbor.  This is nuts.


Associated Press smallIslam Jihad dominateHONOLULU - Hawaii's state Senate has overwhelmingly approved a bill to celebrate "Islam Day," despite the objections of a few lawmakers who said they didn't think the state should honor a religion connected to Sept. 11, 2001.  The resolution to proclaim Sept. 24, 2009, as Islam Day passed the Senate on a 22-3 vote Wednesday. The bill was previously passed by Hawaii's House of Representatives. The bill recognizes what it calls "the rich religious, scientific, cultural and artistic contributions" that Islam and the Islamic world have made. But the Senate's two Republicans argued that radical Islamists cheered the 2001 attacks. They also noted that other religions didn't have a special day honored. The lone Democrat voting in dissent opposed it on church-state separation grounds.

You have got to be kidding me! Maybe we should send those senators to Iraq or Afganistan to see what they think about Americans and they would definatly change their minds about Isalm day. This is a bunch of BULL!

I dont like what happened on 911, but the groups that attacked our country and are attacking our troops make up a very small part of 1.5 billion people that practice Islam.  Should Hawaii kick out all of the Japanese in their state???


 


The US was founded on freedom and I believe that if you are not harming anyone then you should be able to practice any religion that you want.  I am sad to see people so closed minded in their religious views.


 


No I am not Islamic!!  I dont believe in organized religion.  I already know that many on PL do not share the same view.  I dont think any less of any one that doesnt think like me, but I am not sure if the feeling is mutual.


 


357, do you really believe that this is a day to honor terrorists??  


 


I am expecting to see many insults and CAPITAL letters replying to this post.  I only ask you to be open minded and realize that all Islamics are not terrorists hellbent on killing and fear.

 I second Mikey_C's comment in that I do not equate Islam with terrorism or terrorism with Islam.  However, I think it's a bit of a cheap political ploy to have an "Islam Day" when there is no "Christianity Day" or "Buddhism Day" or "Hinduism Day" (or "Scientology Day" - lol!).


Yes, us in the West do have to be less narrow minded when it comes to Islam, but this is not the way to do it.  Such obvious pandering to one particular segment of the population does not help us.
