Aloha Islam Day? Hawaii Decision Faces Backlash

Ad Feedback

Hawaii's decision to have a special "Islam Day" is now causing a backlash.

The Hawaii State Legislature recently passed a resolution, designating September 24 as a day to foster awareness of and education about Islam.

But now that decision could hurt the state's crucial tourism industry.

Already some main-landers have sent e-mails criticizing the Islam Day idea, and have declared they won't travel to the islands because of it.

Hawaii's governor calls the measure unnecessary and says it's drawing the wrong kind of attention to her state.
