Empire State Madness

In a grim reminder of the short memory of some New Yorkers, it has been announced that the Empire State Building will celebrate the end of Ramadan (A Muslim holiday celebrated by less than 1% of the United States population) by a special lighting display. Perhaps some wish to forget the citizens and firefighters who lost their lives at the hands of Islamofascists in another skyscraper on September 11, 2001. I won’t.

Empire State Building to go green for Muslim holiday

(AFP) — 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. Link
