Herein lies the root of why it is utterly ridiculous for the United States to recognize religious holy days/months for radical Islamists facing trials for terrorism.
Last week, a U.S. military judge agreed to postpone the trials of five terrorists involved in the 9/11 attacks, presumably out of respect for their Muslim holy period of Ramadan.
While our military courts are respecting the holy days celebrated by the terrorists, the terrorists have no intention of respecting that same religious period.
Just into the second day of Ramadan, Iraqi terrorists have killed 25 people.
Bombs in Shiite areas of Iraq claimed the lives of 25 people Sunday, the second day of the Muslim holy month Ramadan. An Iraqi soldier and a policeman also died in separate incidents.
The violence started in the morning, when a car bomb exploded outside a popular restaurant in the central city of Najaf, about 100 miles south of Baghdad, an official with Iraq’s Interior Ministry said. Five people were killed and 14 others were wounded.
Just before sunset, when Muslims break their daily Ramadan fast, three roadside bombs exploded within a few minutes of each other at the crowded al-Tameem market in a predominantly Shiite area in Baghdad’s southern outskirts, police officials in the capital said. Fifteen people were killed and 60 others wounded, police said.
Why are we respecting the religious holiday of people who have no respect for it themselves?
