Muslim Day Parade 2013
(please click to enlarge all photos!)
I went to the New York City Muslim Day Parade yesterday. According to the official parade program, this year's theme was, "Islam's Contribution to Human Civilization." Yes, you read that right. And yes, it is singular, not plural.
To quote the editor over at The Religion of Peace, "Other than a big stack of dead bodies, I can't think of much else. Guess they'll have to be creative."
Well, they didn't even bother trying to be creative. It was the same old, same old, with lots more of the same. No inclusiveness. No reaching out to their fellow man, just a lot of victimhood and no mention of terrorism, such as the mall siege in Nairobi over the weekend or the suicide bombing of an historic Christian church in Pakistan during services yesterday.
Not even a peep about the many innovations that Islam lays claims to. It was just more Islamic jihad with extra jihad.
Take a close look at what's going on in our own country, on our own streets!
Marchers with the flags of Islamic jihad on full display.
All this jihad was accompanied by the usual chest-thumping boasts of being Islam being the best, and the dreary 'allah-akbaring' and 'Takbiring' all the way down Madison Avenue.
There will be no dancing at the parade!
New York City Police Commissioner, Ray Kelly came for a photo-op. He did not march.

Here was something new! A U-Haul Kaaba.
'The Hijab Movement.'
A small sampling of hijabs in their various forms.
I guess you could call it a male hijab, right?
New York State Assemblyman Democrat Eric Stevenson spoke about his push for halal meals in our city schools and Islamic holidays.
And then there was a pair of Egyptian ladies who showed their support for the Egyptian military.
I asked them why the Egyptian people voted for Morsi. After all, his views were abundantly clear to the world. The Egyptians of all people should have known what he was up to. They said that Morsi ran as a 'president for all people' and they largely believed him.
I was a little incredulous because I was not alone in the realization that Obama was a lowdown, anti-American, anti-liberty Marxist during his presidential campaign despite what he told the American people. And yet, he was elected--twice... but I digress.
'C.C.' is Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the newly-appointed First Deputy Prime Minister of Egypt and remaining Minister of Defense. el-Sisi replaces Mohammad Morsi, who is under house arrest.
This small group of Egyptian military supporters were in the tiny minority. I saw no other examples of dissent. In fact the speakers at the post-parade festivities were decidedly stacked for Morsi.

Now for the Muslim Brotherhood-a-palooza!
Khaled Lamada, supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood speaks about the 'coup' in Egypt.
There were many supporters of Morsi.
It was Morsi, Morsi, Morsi!
Mohammad Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, the sworn enemies of the United States.
They had a Morsi fevah!
The only prescription? More Morsi!
Yusuf Estes, Founder and Director of GuideUS.TV.
Mrs. Yusuf Estes, I presume.
Yusuf Estes tried to excite the crowd with his new Islamic tv network.
It appears to be a family business.

More coming! Please, stand by..
Children sing creepy song about Islam.

Mark Gjonaj, New York State Assemblyman, 80th District Queens. Gjonaj was at last year's Muslim Day Parade. He shared the stage with New York State Senator, Tony Avella [D], who walked off the stage because he was offended by the radical content of the program.
