Seems in one American high school-that we know of, celebrating Islam and bashing Americans is more important than remembering the people that lost their lives the day the towers were taken down. Regardless who you hold responsible for the murder of nearly 3000 innocent lives that fateful day, (as well as the hundreds of thousands more lives since) the following story is an effrontery on decency. The Boston High School that Commemorates 9/11 with ”A Muslim Poem” – and skips the Pledge of Allegiance – should reconsider its leadership and allegiances.

Regardless of who orchestrated 9/11 we can all agree the American people were attacked on September the 11th 2001. Anyone with any decency can also agree that any future day commemorating the attacks should be seen as a day in which Americans can remember the innocent people that lost their lives in the horrific incident. It should never be a day to make an overtly inflammatory political statement as it has this past week, with first the Million Muslim March, and the following example of leftist lunacy.
The Concord Carlisle High School, run by Marxist ideologues and their brethren on the school board and teachers union, feel that 9/11 should be “utilized to celebrate cross cultural understanding” as much as it is to remember the people that perished in the attacks-so much so that they decided to dedicate morning assembly to a poem penned from an “Islamic perspective. Before we get to the ridiculous poem, which has little to do with 9/11, you’ll have to hazard a guess what normal procedure was skipped that morning. You guessed it; the reading of the nation’s Pledge of Allegiance.
After widespread condemnation for the “oversight” the high school’s principle issued this weak apology.
“Yesterday was the first Wednesday of the school year; we were unaware that our student Pledge reader had an internship commitment on this day,” Mr. Badalament said in the statement. “This was our responsibility to know. We humbly apologize that this oversight and communication gap.”
Now for the poem. I’ll only share the most egregious snippets from the original Boston.com article as the bulk of it is too ludicrous to reprint. I lost bits of the chicken and potato salad I had for breakfast when I reached “Sears”. Enjoy the excerpt courtesy of Boston.com.
Mohja Kahf’s writes: “My Grandmother Washes Her Feet in the Sink of the Bathroom at Sears,” tells a granddaughter’s account of watching her grandmother adhere to the religious Muslim custom of washing her feet five times a day.
“Respectable Sears matrons shake their heads and frown,” Miss Kahf writes, “as they notice what my grandmother is doing … an affront to American porcelain … a contamination of American Standards by something foreign and unhygienic requiring civic action and possible use of disinfectant spray.”
And it doesn’t rhyme!
