2016’s Eid al-Fitna
So, this year the Muslims’ holiday, Eid al-Adha – Feast of Sacrifice – will occur on September 11th – yes! on 9/11, the 15th anniversary of the Muslims’ devastating terrorist attack upon the World Trade Center. If the owners and managers of the Empire State Building hold true to form, the top of the Empire State Building will be lit “Islam Green” in celebration of this despite the fact that any public celebration of Islam in NYC on 9/11 will be grossly offensive to most residents.
NOTE: The title of this post is “Eid al-Fitna” – Feast of Strife – because strife is all that the Muslims have brought to the modern world and all that they seeming willing to ever bring.
But, given that the Muslims’ Eid al-Adha is literally a feast celebrating the willingness of Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac, as an act of submission to God’s command, it even makes a certain perverse sense that the Muslims would be more than willing to sacrifice New Yorkers’ feelings and sensibilities on the altar if their God.
