US: fight broke out today at Rye Playland after a large group of Muslim women were denied access to rides

They were wearing “traditional headgear*, you see, celebrating the end of Ramadan. How dare the ignorant kafirs prevent them from going on rides, even it is for their own safety!

I think I’m having another stereotypical Islamophobic  moment coming on. Excuse me while I get my daily dose of sensitivity & diversity training in my local madrassa:

Headgear Kerfuffle

RYE — A large disturbance broke out at Playland Park today when Muslim visitors got angry that the park was enforcing its ban on headgear by prohibiting the women from wearing their traditional head coverings on some rides. The park was crowded with Muslims celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr, one of Islam’s two major holidays.  (Police arrest 15 at Playland in dispute over Muslim headwear)

Where American law and practice conflict with Islamic law and practice, American law and practice have to give way. That is the way it always is. Otherwise, there will be violence. “Police arrest 15 at Playland in dispute over Muslim headwear,” by Rebecca Baker and Jonathan Bandler for, August 30 (thanks to JW):


RYE — A large disturbance broke out at Playland Park today when Muslim visitors got angry that the park was enforcing its ban on headgear by prohibiting the women from wearing their traditional head coverings on some rides.Police from at least nine other agencies converged on the park beginning at 3 p.m. after county police sought assistance in responding to the disturbance, which involved about 30 to 40 people. Twelve men and three women were arrested, mostly for disorderly conduct, and two park rangers were injured, authorities said. Two people were charged with felony assault after, officials said, they attacked park rangers.

The park was crowded with Muslims celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr, one of Islam’s two major holidays. Most were from community groups around New York City as part of a day-long event arranged by the Muslim American Society of New York.


The Muslim American Society is the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. So it is no surprise that they expected the park to jump to do their bidding and change their policies to suit them.

Parks officials had “painstakingly” told the organizer about the headgear ban, said parks spokesman Peter Tartaglia, but he said that the rules might not have been communicated by the organizer to some attendees. The ban was implemented about four years ago to keep hats and other head coverings from landing on tracks and derailing rides.“It’s a safety issue on rides. If it’s a scarf, you could choke,” Tartaglia said.

Accounts of what had happened varied, but everyone agreed the dispute began after park-goers were told the headgear ban applied to women wearing traditional Muslim head coverings, known as hijabs.

Tartaglia said once word of that got out there were “a lot of unhappy people.”…

Lola Ali, 16, of Astoria said she had witnessed a group of girls and women wearing hijabs go to park security to confront them about the headgear issue.

Men within the park saw this and tried to intervene, Ali said, and the situation went downhill from there.

“They were beating down the girls then they started beating down the guys,” she said of the security officers.

Earlier, a park cashier told a Journal News reporter that a woman wearing a hijab either pushed or hit a ride operator who forbade her from going on the ride. She said a police officer tried to restrain the woman and the woman’s husband took offense, at which point a multiple-person fight broke out.

The park was never closed to attendees but for a time new visitors were not being allowed in. Crowds were being turned away at Playland Parkway and Forest Avenue. Officials said late in the afternoon that they were slowly reopening the park to new visitors and that the group’s religious ceremony planned for 9 p.m. could still occur….

Brooklyn resident Amr Khater, who had come to the park at about noon with his family, said his family was told about the hijab rule by park employees when they arrived.

“Everybody got mad, everybody got upset,” he said. “It’s our holiday. Why would you do this to us?”…


It’s your holiday. That doesn’t mean you can make Playland bend to your will and change its longstanding safety policies, that were not formulated in order to victimize you.

At 4:30 p.m., more than an hour and a half after the incident started, nearly three dozen cruisers blocked Playland’s entrance and a helicopter was flying overhead. A reporter counted nearly 60 cruisers on the scene from various agencies….Playland’s policies, posted on its website, include: “All items and clothing must be appropriately secured while on a ride; some smaller items can be stored/secured in cargo pockets or waist pouches. Hats must be secured, and jackets/sweaters must be worn properly and not around the waist while on a ride. Some rides do not allow backpacks, purses or head gear of any kind.”…


Oh, the Islamophobia!



*“traditional head coverings”- that’s a lie, just like everything else.

The hijabs, burqas, niqabs and other shrouds are spreading do to Islamization, Arab imperialism and jihad indoctrination.

Only a few decades ago, even in the most backward Islamic countries the freedom sack was not common.

Its pure terror, against their own women and against us, the kuffar.
Can you imagine how quick these creatures would be to sue if their headgear got caught in the machinery of an amusement park ride?

  1. Susanp sez:

    What a strange way to celebrate a pagan holiday. Always trying to break the rules, rules made to protect public safety. They were told in advance that no head wear was allowed but they expected preferential treatment because they think they are special. How humiliating it must be for them to be treated like what they are— a gang of disruptive, rowdy, aggressive thugs who always resort to violence when they don’t get their way. Before this is over, the park will be sued and forced to pay them for their pain, suffering, and embarrassment. Apologies will be made for failure to respect muslim sensitivities and discrimination against islam, and the owners and employees will be subjected to mandatory training on how to treat their superiors.

    There’s no telling how far it will go; they might end up owning the place. No price is too high to avoid offending savages. After all, multiculturalism, the most prized and sacred of all ideologies, would not be complete without belligerent, supremacist muslims to despoil every nook and cranny of American culture. Nothing is sacred to the alien invaders and they have no shame.

    The Muslim holiday of Id al Fitr commemorates the end of the month of Ramadan. But did you know the feast was originally instituted as a celebration of the supremacy of Islam over non-Muslims?”

    I guess they resented us showing them who’s really supreme?

  2. I was just reading how a father slit the throats of his daughters because THEY had been raped – and thought – ‘gee, when is this sheer insanity going to end…..’ But secretly, I already know that answer. : when Islam is trash along with all the other failed mass – ideologies.

    The cultists are putting the ride operator in a position of being damned if they do and damned if they don’t cater to their fat little ego’s wishes.


    Operator should absolutely decline on grounds of public safety

  3. Let a few get caught in the equipment, Isadora Duncan springs to mind, but only after they have signed a disclaimer!

  4. I guess those stupid bitches WANT to get strangled or decapitated when their scarf gets caught in the wheels or gears. Why are they so stupid? Why do they fly off the handle before they understand the circumstances? The playland needs to put up some of those ‘picture signs’ with the red circle with the line through it, followed by the reason why. Coke machines now have a little picture of a stick man shaking the machine and then the machine falling on top of him with a bunch of little pain lighting bolts coming off it LOLL it looks like it hurts. My bus also had a sign, I think it was about getting your foot out of the way when the bus folds out the wheelchair ramp.

    I would laugh every time I saw a shadow stick figure with a scarf tangled in the wheels LMAO

    Woman have died in small sports cars wearing those long sheer scarves around their necks.

    If the amusement part made them sign disclaimers and let them ride it would be funny as shit.

  5. Muslims are claiming that what happened to them was because they were Muslims.

    I have to agree. Muslims are enjoined by their belief, that they must challenge the Kuffar state, when and where possible. At the end of Ramadan, when the fasting month is over, this was a nice little jolly to get a few Jihad points in allah’s note book. Muslims broke the law, but their belief tells them to challenge the Kuffar’s man-made law. So yes, they were arrested for being Muslim.

    No real solution to this problem except to advice Muslims to go to an Islamic country.

  6. Further

    As Muslims will be arrested for keeping their faith by breaking or usurping Kuffar laws, they will, in their eyes, be prosecuted for being Muslim.

    Which shows, if any further evidence was needed, that Islam and Muslims are totally incompatible with Western law and traditions.

    Its best we live apart, or else Muslims and Islam are going to be very severely damaged.

  7. If somebody gets maimed or killed on a ride because they are wearing unsafe clothing or gear, the park would have been been sued.

    I actually spoke to a lawyer about this, and that’s exactly what he told me.

    Such an event would most like put the park out of business.

  8. Will this madness ever end? Its the same old story with these clowns – one law you us, one law for them. Its time society stood up against this nonsense. These is one set of laws for society, and they apply to everyone, regardless of race, colour, creed or in this case pseudo-religion. If you dont like to live within the bounds of these laws then go somewhere else and stop bothering the rest of us with these incessant and tiresome demands
