    No matter which candidate wins the New York City mayoral election — Democrat Bill de Blasio or Republican Joe Lhota — the fate of Muslim students is the city school’s system seems clear: They will have their holy days declared holidays.

    It’s a matter of “respect,” Mr. de Blasio said, referring to the 13 percent of city students who claim affiliation with the Muslim faith.

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.
