Islamic terrorists destroyed two of the tallest buildings in New York on September 11, 2001.
Six years later, one of the remaining super-skyscrapers in New York, the Empire State Building, is going to go dysentery green for the Muslim holiday of Eid.
New York’s iconic Empire State Building is to be lit up green from Friday in honor of the Muslim holiday of Eid, the biggest festival in the Muslim calendar marking the end of Ramadan, officials said.
“This is the first time that the Empire State Building will be illuminated for Eid, and the lighting will become an annual event in the same tradition of the yearly lightings for Christmas and Hannukah,” according to a statement.
Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the fasting month, is expected to be celebrated in New York from Friday, depending on when the new moon is sighted, and the city’s tallest skyscraper will remain green until Sunday.
Built in the early 1930s, the 443-meter-tall (1,454-feet-tall) Empire State Building was first lit up with colored lighting in 1976, when red, white and blue lights were used to mark the American Bicentennial.
An estimated seven million Muslims live in the United States.
* The last sentence is a CAIR-promoted lie. The Pew Research Center estimates the total population of Muslims in the United States at 2.35 million.
The problem with this is the unexamined assumption that Islam is exactly the same kind of thing as Judaism and Christianity, and must be welcomed into the United States with no examination of the ready-made societal alternative that it offers, and which some Muslims have made clear that they are determined ultimately not just to offer but to impose upon the West. In light of the dim view that some Muslims have of Western holidays, can we expect that in an Islamic New York, as some would like to see exist someday, the building will still be lit up for Christmas and Hanukkah?
Another unexamined assumption is that most Muslims abhor what happened on 9/11, and so this is no insult to the memory of those who died on that day. But I can’t help but think how nice it would have been to light up the World Trade Center towers also.
Subversion and treason:
Commies and other useful idiots are openly supporting the enemy at a time of war: American leftards in cahoots with Islamofascist agit props:
CALL IT THE LEFT’S VERSION OF PREEMPTIVE WAR.
The three co-equal branches of the Unholy Alliance â€“ Islamic radicals, far-Left activists, and academics â€“ have returned to their usual level of discourse â€“ intimidation, slander, ad hominem attacks â€“ in an attempt to ban Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week from college campuses before it ever occurs.
National “Muslim and Arab rights” organizations are pressuring college administrators to prevent students from holding the peaceful, educational seminars. Conservative students have been accused of “hate speech” actually manufactured in their name by radical campus leftists, and at least one conservative is being harassed although she is not in any way associated with Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week.
THE NATIONAL “MUSLIM RIGHTS” HATE CAMPAIGN
Two prominent Arab/Muslim groups â€“ the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) and Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) â€“ have taken their efforts to censor IFAW or malign its founders nationwide. Notably absent from its literature is any attempt to disprove the conclusions of Robert Spencer, to refute the stories of Iranian women persecuted by extremist Islam, or demonstrate any factual error on the part of any IFAW speaker. Instead, they simply try to shut it down and paint its organizers as knuckle-dragging hatemongers.
