UK:School Postpones Xmas For Islamic Holiday


Catering to Islam is becoming an almost daily event in the United Kingdom. This time a Junior School has put off their yearly Christmas performance because it conflicts with the Islamic holiday of Eid which marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. The Christmas play has been rescheduled for after the new year. As usual the minority Muslims get their way over the majority non-Muslims. I encourage all non-Muslim Brits to take a stand and not to let the politically correct crowd destroy your culture.



Nottingham School Cancels Christmas to Make Way for Islam
December 4, 2008 by George Fanning
A Nottingham School has cancelled Christmas festivities to make way for commemoration of the Muslim Eid festival, according to the Nottingham Evening Post.
In a decision so offensive that it would scarcely have been believed only a few years ago, a letter was sent to parents of children at Greenwood Junior School, Sneinton, to explain why the school had cancelled Christmas.
The letter from “The staff at Greenwood Junior School”, said: “It is with much regret that we have had to cancel this year’s Christmas performances. This is due to the Eid celebrations that take place next week and its effect on our performers.”
The school has not revealed what the performance involved, but parents described it as a nativity play.
According to the Evening Post, the Head Teacher, one Amber Latif, and the Chair of Governors, responded to complaints from parents by sending a second letter which apologised, but also compounded the original offence by explaining that the Christmas performances would be staged in the New Year. The letter continued in the following terms:
“We are a very inclusive school and fully respect the cultures and religions of all the children. We are upset to know that some of our parents/carers have been offended by the letter. The Christmas performance has not been cancelled outright but has been postponed until the New Year.”

Awfully sad to see GB being overrun like that. What is the point of a Christmas event after the new year anyway? Please email me at thepolicyproject@gmail.com to exchange blog links if you wish. Glad to see you are on the case.

It is sad and it even sadder for the children who want to celebrate and watch that Christmas play. Thanks for the kind words, I will email you later.

How come the Muslims do not tell the school not to offend the Christians like this?

Not exactly. I live in Nottingham and today the local paper has run another story clarifying things. They had scheduled an overly ambitious Christmas play and not all the kids had learned their lines, so they postponed it until the new year. Several letters were sent to parents, and somehow it all got conflated with Eid celebrations.

There is no longer any doubt in my mind that England has lost it's mind and any claim to have any moral spine. The stories about the muz in Europe is disheartening and sad.

Exile,

This is from the original letter that the school issued.

The first letter, sent from 'The staff at Greenwood Junior School', said: "It is with much regret that we have had to cancel this year's Christmas performances. This is due to the Eid celebrations that take place next week and its effect on our performers."
