State of USA honours Islam
The Milli Gazette
23 May 2009
Take a minute to appreciate and support this gesture
The State Legislature of Hawaii State, the birthplace of President Obama,
has passed a resolution marking Sept. 24 as Islam Day to recognize the
"rich religious, scientific, cultural and artistic contributions" of Islam
and the Islamic world.
Since the passing of the Islam day Resolution in Hawaii and because of its
worldwide media cover, a vocal minority have been trying to put a negative
spin to this resolution. As a follow up to the Islam Day article that
appeared in Hawaii's Star bulletin on Friday, May 15, 2009 a poll was
initiated asking if people approve or disapprove of this resolution.
Please take a moment to vote for this as many people will be looking at
this poll for future strategies. It is very crucial that people supporting
this resolution far exceed those opposing it. People opposed were far
greater in numbers because they vote multiple times and they send it to
all people that they know. Now the tide has changed and ‘Yes’ votes are
leading in count.
Please take a minute of your time and join in voting a resounding "YES" to
this poll. Please do this immediately and your efforts will be rewarded.
