Montgomery County Councilmember George Leventhal & Former Del. Saqib Ali Seek School Closures for Muslim Holidays

Below Maryland Juice prints a letter from Montgomery County Councilmember George Leventhal to school superintendent Joshua Starr and Board of  Education President Shirley Brandman. In collaboration with former State House member Saqib Ali, Mr. Leventhal is urging Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) to close down on two Muslim holidays. I thought the effort was worth mentioning, given the bursts of hysteria in Maryland regarding the region's Muslim American population. For example, you may recall that earlier this year, a Chevy Chase, Maryland GOP club saw fit to host an anti-Muslim speaker -- with the stated purpose of stopping Sharia law from creeping into Maryland. In any case, Mr. Leventhal's letter is copied below:
