Breitbart reports that in deliberate insult to the memory of those slaughtered in the 2001 destruction of the World Trade Center by teams of Muslim hijackers, the proprietors of the Empire State Building will light that icon in green from this Friday until Sunday to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, the end of Ramadan. The light show may be timed to begin, like the holiday, when the new moon is sighted.
This is more than just a building. It's sacred- a monument to capitalism and the American spirit. Celebrating this holiday like this is blasphemy. Do you think they'd light up the Kaaba for us a mere six years after - if our beliefs ran as strongly to barbarism as theirs, thank God they don't - we flattened the Al-Aqsa mosque?
This act of dhimmitude will offset nicely the twin columns of light seen in so many touching photos after three thousand unarmed civilian New Yorkers died in the cowardly attack. The Empire State Building has its own website, of course, and an easy way to contact the owners by email.
One presumes that high-profile New Yorkers Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY), Mayor Bloomberg, former mayor and presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani, and the entire NYPD and NYFD are in support of this outrage. If they're not, maybe they'll have something to say. Does anyone care to bet on that? Here is the link to send email to the Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.
