Are You Kidding … Empire State Building to go Green in Honor of the Muslim Holiday of Eid


There is a fine line between political correctness, can’t we all get along diversity and insulting. It would appear that the powers that be at the Empire State building have crossed that line. The Empire State building in NYC, the place of the most heinous terrorist act in the United States by Islamofacsist, Muslim extremists will be lighting their windows green in honor of a Muslim holiday. In a post 9–11 world, there was no reason to begin a tradition of honoring this holiday when it had never been done before.


(Does this picture look familiar?)

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. (Breitbart)

To the folks at the Empire State building who make these decisions, do you know what Muslim terrorist refer to the now tallest building in NYC, the Empire State building as … NEXT! These people do not want the windows glowing green … they want the Empire State building to look just like the World Trade Center did on 9–11.

Some of the commenters at Little Green Footballs have hit the nail on the head

How about lighting the windows in a bullseye pattern?

I wondering where they’re going to get enough burlap to put the Statue of Liberty in a burqa

Tallest Building in NYC Since September 11, 2001 to Honor High Muslim Holiday

      What the ?!?!?!?!

      Did I fall asleep and wake up in a different dimension?

      What’s this?

      The latest lesson in political correctness

      and the Christians version of forgiveness?

      Or is it just the Jewish version of grab

      your shit and run for your life?

      Doesn’t America stand up for anything, anymore?

      Or have New Yorkers, turned yellow?

      Take your pick…

      Muslim does not equal terrorist. Though true that our national enemies are pretty much completely islamic, our enemies are a subset of that population.
      SM: No one said Muslim = terrorist. However, ever terrorist on 9-11 was a Muslim. Also, where is the outrage from the Muslim community against Muslim extremists.

      This was never done in the past … there is no reason to be doing it now. None, zero, nada.

      Until all of the Muslim community openly denounces terrorist and this crazy faction of their religion, they get no free pass.

      What are they going to do, light up the Empire State Building and then put a veil over it!

      This is simply kissing Islamofacist ass.

      If NYC really wants to send a message to this Islamofacist scum, then they need to rebuild the WTC twin towers.

      That’s the message that needs to be sent.

      Well maybe there will be a power outage. Enough of this s##t!

      This is just bending over backwards for religious nuts.
      Next thing you know, they’ll want to make Christmas a national holiday.

      Let’s FIRST see Saudi Arabia allow Christian prayer in that country.

      I have no animus against Islam per se … who am I to speak about anyone’s religious faith? … but this stinks of political correctness.

      I bet those who advocate this are a very small minority.

      Hey, there’s another me here! ? ! ? !

      They are also going to wrap towels on their heads.

      This is disgraceful and certainly not the country that I’ve ever known before. Where is America? Where is the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave instead of land of the nuts, truthers, global warming alarmist, and PC fruitcakes?

      Remember, Robert of the Netherlands, who has been here for quite some time with us …

      Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

      So obviously you have admirers.

    12. SUPER DAVE on October 12th, 2007 12:44 pm

      they’ve already taken God and prayer out of our schools and inserted Islam instead. now it’s halloween and christmas. this is our government and our own court system at work for our tax dollars.
      it’s a shame we don’t have three billion dollars a week to spend on America ! the Islamists will soon have more rights in our own country than those of us who were born here.

      (BTW. As you can see I have chosen a new nickname now to distinguish me from other Roberts. After all… there are more people, men, boys… with this name.)

    14. brie on October 12th, 2007 9:13 pm

      Just who allowed this to happen!

    15. Rob on October 13th, 2007 9:28 am

      Lenin described these people as ‘useful idiots’. And the term ‘enemy with-in’ surely comes to mind.

      Some just don’t get it. And the fact that they stand in the way of those of us who do, makes is doubly insulting. If you will not defend yourself, at-least get out of the way of those of us who are willing.

    16. american on October 14th, 2007 2:18 pm

      this move is one to make ties instead of continuing down the path of making enemies…plus the hijackers of the planes on 9-11 were mostly Saudis yet we refuse to cut ties with them in fear of higher oil prices…

      fyi…Christians live in Saudi and worship as they please…

    17. RayinQ8 on November 30th, 2008 2:51 am

      Re the ESB, I think the whole thing is just a wind up.
      However in reply to 16, to my knowledge there is only one place of Christian worship in KSA, and its well out of the normal view of Saudis and also you are not allowed to worship as you wish.
