- Hawaii has no Christianity Day, no Judaism Day, and no Buddhism Day- but now it has an “Islam Day”
- We reported: Hula Hula Jihad
Muslims have just tricked the Hawaii Legislature into celebrating Islam on September 11.
Hawaii has no Christianity Day, no Judaism Day, and no Buddhism Day–but Hawaii’s Democrat Legislatorsâ€”with theÂ loud public supportÂ ofÂ Ron Paul connectedÂ RepÂ Kym Pine (R-Ewa)â€”passed a resolution to create Islam Day.Â
By a 22-3 vote the Hawaii Senate May 7 approved House Concurrent Resolution 100 which designates September 24, 2009 as Islam Day.Â The State House had quietly approved the measure without dissent March 17.
Introduced March 4Â asÂ HCR100Â by RepsÂ Faye HanohanoÂ (D-Puna),Â Lyla BergÂ (D-Hawai`i Ka`i), andÂ Della Au BelattiÂ (D-Makiki) HCR proposed Islam Day to be “November 21, 2009, marks the anniversary of the founding of Islam….” But that was soon amended toÂ HCR100HD1Â which intones, “the Prophet Mohammad left his house to migrate to Madinah and reached Quba in the vicinity of Madinah on the 12thÂ day of Rabi ul-Awwal according to the lunar calendar, or September 24thÂ according to the Gregorian calendar, thereby marking the birth of Islam….” (Emphasis added)
This is false.Â September 24thÂ is the date of Mohammad’s arrival in Medina according to the oldÂ Julian calendarâ€”which isÂ 13 daysÂ behind the modern Gregorian calendar. The fact that “Gregorian” is mentioned in the resolution implies that somebody was considering the two calendars.
Had the Hawaii legislature intended to mark the Julian date September 24 they would have picked the Gregorian date October 7, 2009 for Islam Day. Had they wished to mark the date celebrated each year by Muslims, that would have been the “12thÂ day of Rabi ul-Awwal”â€”March 9, 2009.
But instead they picked the modern Gregorian date September 24, 2009. This day corresponds to no holiday in the Islamic calendar.Â But on the Julian calendar it is September 11, 2009.Â
Religious scholars and historians are among the very few likely to spot the hidden September 11thÂ date. Senator Sam Slomâ€”one of the three who voted against the resolutionâ€”says the Religion Department of UH was unaware of the resolution.Â Perhaps this explains why.
Meanwhile the Muslims are laughing.
