Postpones Xmas For Islamic Holiday



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 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eid_ul-Fitr>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."
