New York: Once Again, The Empire State Building Lights Up In Dysentery Green For Musulmanic Holiday


*  Thomas Jefferson must be spinning in his grave like an Iranian centrifuge…


The Empire State Building is aglow in green this weekend to honor the Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan.

* City Council members are calling on the state to give New York City children the day off from school on two Muslim holidays.



The 102-story building routinely lights up its famous spire to honor everything from traditional holidays to sporting events to notable charities to “the myriad ethnic groups living in the New York City area,” according to the building’s website.

But Thursday night marked the first time the all-green lighting was used to mark the kickoff of Eid-al-Fitr, a three-day celebration for Muslims around the world.

The all-green lighting was used earlier in the week to promote the city’s Parks Department.

Not many religious holidays make the cut. Green and red are used every year to mark the Christmas holiday season, and blue and white — the colors of the Israeli flag — are used for the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah.

And the building doesn’t fire up its thousand-watt bulbs for just anyone. The “extraordinary number of requests” cannot all be accommodated, according to a building statement. Lighting up the spire for commercial products and corporate events is out, as is the commemoration of personal events like birthdays or anniversaries.

The Empire State Building’s tower was first lit up in colors in July, 1976, when red, white and blue were used in celebration of the American Bicentennial. A new lighting system that allows a wider range of colors was inaugurated the following year, when blue and white lights flashed to announce the New York Yankees had won the World Series.

  1. What a disgusting pathetic Dhimmi show. Now who were the terrorist morons who flew the planes in to the Twin Towers oh yes of course Muslims well we better bow down to them then. Sometimes the pathetic PC, Multi Culti , Moonbat stupidity displayed by fools in of the West makes me physically sick and this is one of those times.

  2. There is not enough appeasement in the world that can placate the islamic wolves. Only two solutions. Total separation,or all out war.

  3. Maybe that would have been a good time to do the lights representing the Twin Towers
    again, but not in green!
