But the question remains:
Why would the cities of Lansing and East Lansing, Michigan, schedule such an event on September 11?
Via BizPac Review:
….For reasons that remain baffling, the cities of Lansing and East Lansing, Mich., decided to hold a feast celebrating a Muslim holiday that was to take place not only long after the actual holiday was over, but on the anniversary of the very day Islamist terrorists murdered thousands of Americans in New York City and Washington 14 years ago….
While the news was mostly ignored by the mainstream media, it was picked up by conservative new media, including BizPac Review, and protests were being planned outside the Lansing Center in downtown Lansing. The pressure was enough, apparently, for sanity to prevail.
According to a news release issued by the city of Lansing on Monday:
After due deliberation, the event organizers have decided that the community’s remembrance of the tragic events of 9-11 and the celebration of diversity and inclusion embodied in the Ramadan Unity Dinner should be held at separate times.
