Islamic group pressures school board to remove Jewish and Christian holiday. (Florida)

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, a national Islamic organization, has pressured the School District of Hillsborough County to remove the Jewish and Christian holidays Yom Kippur, Good Friday and Easter Monday from the school calendar.

School board members proposed removing the religious holidays during a workshop on Tuesday, February 20, 2007. Ahmed Bedier, with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), was there closely monitoring the meeting. The school board members were not considering the addition of a Muslim holiday during this meeting only the removal of Christian and Jewish holidays at the bequest of CAIR.

The school board members will take their vote on Tuesday, February 27, 2007.
