Muslim Holy Day on Sept. 11? Coincidence Stirs Fears

by SAMANTHA SCHMIDT | The New York Times  |  published on August 30, 2016


Every year, Muslim leaders around the world look to the moon to predict the date for one of their most important holidays, Eid al-Adha — the feast of sacrifice.

When Habeeb Ahmed began about two months ago to plan for that holy day, he noticed a potentially fraught coincidence: Eid al-Adha could fall on Sept. 11.

“Some people might want to make something out of that,” said Mr. Ahmed, who was recently elected president of the Islamic Center of Long Island, adding that he could easily foresee how some might misunderstand the festivities, and say, “Look at these Muslims, they are celebrating 9/11.”

The potential for the holiday to fall on the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks has stirred apprehension among Muslims in New York City and across the country at a time when violent acts committed by religious extremists have provoked inflammatory political rhetoric and helped fuel a surge in hate crimes against Muslims.

In New York, the possibility of the holiday falling on Sept. 11 has intensified security concerns and fears already reverberating throughout the Muslim community after the killings of an imam and his assistant in Queens this month. For some, it also resurfaces memories of the backlash and the police surveillance directed at Muslims in the years after the attacks.

  • Robert McFate

    Benghazi also happened on September 11. Just a coincidence?

  • mesaman

    Habeeb, I would be suspicious of you and the date of your execution-style sacrifice celebration, regardless of the day. More than a coincidence, this appears to be a careful strategy planned to do what muslims do best; end the lives of innocent human beings.

  • rwendling70

    September 11, 2012 was not that long ago, except for those living in Rio Vista. This year, with the Barry and Kerry brothers still in office, another Muslim terror attack, er, holy day celebration is possible.
    Notice, Barry’s record of acts that helped America is as dismal as Kerry’s record of love-marriages: zip, zero, nada.
    Hooray for Trump-Pence 2016!

  • robert sanders

    I could show you what a muslim would look like after hes hanging from the blackhouse.

  • Marilynn Reeves

    Deport all Muslims and we want have to worry about their celebrations.No one but Obummer and his friends even want them here.

  • Marine Moe

    They say it’s a coincidence but they r really celebrating death and destruction

  • Luke

    So if you kill muslims it’s a hate crime and we’re religious extremist, see how the writer put this lie into the article, what a sorry moron..
    IMHO the muslims can get the hell out of America to celebrate their hate and actions against America..

    This should help build support for Donald Trump’s plans to deport illegal immigrants. There is nothing like a celebration on Sept. 11 by people who share the same religion as the Sept. 11 hijackers/mass murderers.

    The Islamic calendar does not line up with the calendar used by the western world. Over the course of a decade or two an Islamic calendar date will move from fall to summer to spring to winter to fall due to the moon based months and no leap month to keep the seasons aligned with specific months on the calendars. I guess when Mohammed was creating this religion he failed to grasp the importance of having an annual calendar based on the earth’s travel around the sun. Instead, he based his calendar exclusively on the moon since Islam was based on the moon god Allah.

  • Angelika G

    It was all but Bill Clinton’s push to spread Islam around the world, it started on that day. Clinton never had a good explanation for NOT taking Bin Laden into custody as he was offered to him and he knew Bin Laden was America’s big if not biggest THREAT at that time…Bin Laden knew EXACTLY what he was doing, Bush didn’t. Bush fell into this TRAP…And then came Obama, NO coincident, it was all set up and it is all set up for Hillary to be the next President…God help us all….

    I have been encouraging people to read the Qur’an, to make themselves familiar with Sharia Law. Your main media will never show you what has happened to Europe and will soon, if H gets into office be happening here.

    Muslims have been killing us since 1972.

    Look to Europe for your future and then vote Trump in November.

      No, it was the Barbary wars in the early 1800’s.

      Islam means submission and conquest by the sword. Those who live by the sword will die by the sword. Islam is a disease that needs to be eradicated. islam is a satanic cult of death and destruction. Show me one place where Islam is peaceful?

      Lying to infidels per the satanic quran, this is all they are doing. Must of got too hot in the kitchen before islams word dominance with sharia law worldwide. We need to fight back by electing non islamic supporters who are not owned by the saudi, or muslim brotherhood money like Obama and Hitlary .

      Muhammad was a child molester, pedophile and thief. A false prophet of the devil. Islam is a false religion of the devil. Muhammad, the prophet of Islam and the apostle of Allah, had ordered at least 60 raids and wars often involving massacres and personally participated in 27 of them. The exemplary example and the perfection of humanity and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct that he was—Muhammad massacred, beheaded, tortured, terrorized, raped, and looted in the name of God. Mohammad killed 800 jews because he was so peaceful(sarc), murdered and raped with his gang all across the land and it continues today, worldwide. The satanic koran it is our cancer, but we let more in across our open border and legally through the visa lottery that targets muslim countries to bring us this type of diversity for our destruction. This needs to stop ASAP.

      Mohammed married a 6 year old girl so he can molest a child and get her father’s money when he started the false satanic cult of islam. We need to stop importing muslims here and all over the west otherwise we will have the same problems like anywhere else they are. False profit who killed 800 jews, when he started taking over cities taking 1/5 of all pillage and slaves from his followers. Mohamed was a false prophet with a satanic cult following who rape, pillage and kill everything everywhere since this false cult started for muhammad’s and the devils profit. People are still killing in his name of allah the devil. It is upon us all till we defeat the false cult called islam. They will lie, cheat,steal, convert and kill until they are stopped ASAP.

      There are a lot of muslims in latin America and they are crossing our border daily. Seal the border, enforce our laws and these thing will diminish. The more garbage you let in the more garbage you get out of these people. There is an old saying I heard once: Like from morning till night. If something starts a certain way it will always be a certain way. How can you allow illegal entry and not expect illegal acts. Criminals are criminals. The first moment they illegally crossed our border they committed their first illegal act and they will continue in additional illegal acts. Like Stealing identities, voting in our elections, murder, rape, theft & many other crimes. We need to only allow law abiding immigrants into our country who came here legally only because they already started on a good foot and do not want to ruin it like many legal immigrants before. We used to be a melting pot and now we are a hot pot boiling over. Stop all immigration for 20 years clean up our mess then once we are a melting pot again then we can reopen our borders again. So we can become a melting pot again.

      The problem is Obama supports hamas, muslim brotherhood and ISIS. His favorite sound is the islamic call to prayer, he actually said that. Obama is the enemy of the war on terrorism. He supports the other side trying to make it look like he is not but his muslim roots and the teachings in the madrasa are showing. Don’t be fooled by this deceiver because he has 15 members of muslim brotherhood working in his administration.

      Obama’s he has 15 muslim brotherhood members in his administration, even hillary clinton has one of her most trusted advisors too Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff, is one of them. A member of the DHS Security Council, Mohamed Elibiary is another. Who funds most liberal think tanks and other organisations that help bring islam into areas that they have not been. Be very carful, your socialist leaders are fooling you.

      Mosques should be illegal in all western countries just like other religions are banned in most muslim countries.Hamas, part of the peaceful religion of islam. Here are some more joys of islam. Please read WARNING GRAPHIC PHOTOS (RAW) – ISIS begins killing Christians in Mosul, CHILDREN BEHEADED

      These people asked for obama’s help and he said no. I would rather see these Christians here than the garbage coming across our open border daily muslims and all that hate us.

      Don’t worry these people are coming across our open borderer to a town near you and the wonderful things they will bring to America (sarcastic), keep your heads on. Islam means submission. This infidel will never submit to a false prophet mohamed. Muhamed was a child molester, pedofile and thief. A false prophet of the devil. Islam is a false religion of the devil.

      THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD’S “GENERAL STRATEGIC GOAL” FOR NORTH AMERICA

      Obama allows 36 Muslim Terrorist training camps in USA
      ISIS Muslim Radicals Infiltrating US Via Mexican Border

      Isis is funded by the Obama administration through the CIA by john brennan who is a convert of Sunni Islam. Muslim Brotherhood’s U.S. propaganda arm, CAIR, Boko Haram are Sunni, Hamas and ISIS are all Sunni Muslim. Most Muslims in Turkey are Sunni forming about 72% of the population and the leader Erdogan is a muslim brotherhood supporter. Obama has 15 members in his administration who are muslim brotherhood members including Obama’s half brother who is also Sunni just like the saudi king. This is why they are being allowed to take over Iraq and syria. Wake up we need to stop this rogue president before we have Sunni sharia here.

      In 1776 Jefferson asked a Tunisian leader why the Muslims were attacking our merchant ships along the African coast, and got this reply; “The ambassador answered us that it was founded on the laws of their prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to paradise”

      Our Marines fought the Muslims during the Barbary wars in the early 1800’s where they received the moniker “leathernecks” due to the heavy leather collars they had to wear to avoid being beheaded in battle. This is also the reason our Marine Corps Hymn begins, “From the halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli…” We have been dealing with this problem and this type of thinking for over 200 years now, it’s just that today people are seeing it in the open. Copy and paste let everyone know so we can stop this disease!!!!

        My friend you are singing to the choir. I have been doing this since 2004 and before that time when coming back from Shield/Storm and this war. I have read the Qur’an, Hadith, life of Muhammad and know Sharia Law. I have fought with so called scholars on Islam who are busy pulling the turbans over our eyes or trying and I surely love hitting them between the eyes with my knowledge of their religion of a Piece of this one and a Piece of that one and their Muhammad. My favorite ploy is Allah same God as that of the Christians and Jews. I simply remind them of the letters Muhammad wrote to every Potentate of his time, when he began killing outside Arabia spreading his cult and telling them to convert and save themselves, then specified the people of scripture saying give up your god and accept Allah the only god. Then I hit them with the over 100 verses on killing the infidel. I also remind them if Allah the same god how come we had to have the Crusades and why are they killing today everywhere. Infuriates them.

        Yes I know all about the Barbary Coast Pirates and Thomas Jefferson and how so many of our Founding Fathers warned Islam should never have a place in our government and no Muslims should ever hold office especially the presidency.

        Will continue to spread the word and so happy you are out there. ;p

    This Muslim holiday on Sept. 11th is the celebration of their triumph during the NYC bombing that killed almost 3,000. During this massacre, many Muslims in cities round the US have celebrated, partying and jumping up and down. I saw them near our city. I saw them in Palestine, and in Saudi Arabia, Iran, and other Muslim countries. They partied and celebrated the massacre of Americans. That they have followed the order of their god, who orders destructions of all infidels.

      And sadly the American people, if not for ISIS would never have questioned these “Enemies Within.” Americans are going to get it good with the millions O has in America and bringing more daily. His agenda to “Change America” is almost there. Only hope is Trump.
