Mayor Bloomberg is banning all clergy and first responders from the Tenth Anniversary Ceremony for 9/11, but you can be sure he’ll invite a bunch of Muslims there to celebrate their triumph.
By lighting the Empire State Building in Islamic green for Ramadan each year since 9/11, it’s as if Bloomberg is telling Muslims which building to target next.
Vinienco (H/T Henry P) The Empire State Building will celebrate the holiday, Eid-al-Fitr, by shining its world-famous tower lights green on August 30, 2011. In Islam, the color green symbolizes a happy occasion and the importance of nature.
Eid-al-Fitr, or “the Festival of Fast-Breaking,” is a joyous celebration which commemorates the end of Ramadan and marks the completion of a month of spiritual renewal for the global Muslim community.
During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims around the world observe a strict fast from sunrise until sunset, participate in prayer and demonstrate acts of kindness.
Soaring 1,454 feet (from base to antenna) above Midtown Manhattan, the Empire State Building is the “World’s Most Famous Office Building.”
The Empire State Building was named America’s favorite building in a poll conducted by the American Institute of Architects. The Empire State Building Observatory is one of the world’s most beloved attractions and is the region’s #1 tourist destination. (The perfect target for al-Qaeda)
