Muslim Day Parade 2008

I went to the Muslim Day Parade today. It was much smaller in size and attendance than last year's. There were virtually no spectators lined along Madison Avenue for this event. Only the regular weekend tourists milling around on a beautiful day in midtown Manhattan.

Today, October 12 is the 8-year anniversary of the terrorist bombing of the USS Cole in Yemen. This guy brought his little black flag of Islamic jihad, again [like he did last year]. This same flag made another appearance later on down the road at the moronic Islamic Thinkers outpost a few blocks away. We'll get to that later on.

Here he is waving his jihad terrorist flag at the parade itself. I can't believe that the taxpayers of New York City are footing the bill for this.

What was this curious float about I wondered... Turned out to be Medina--the world's most expensive gas station.

Yep, the Saudis. Just a regular bunch of Yankee Doodle Dandies, alright.

Then there were some non-Obama voters.

The protest signs ruffled quite a few feathers among the parade-goers. As they passed heated exchanges flew. Cries of 'no Sharia in America' were met with 'takbir!' [which means 'expansion'] and 'allahu akbar!' Here's the video below.

This guy who is a member of the Islamic Thinkers Society [a radical group of nincompoops bordering on being seriously dangerous] called a female passerby who got into the fray a whore. So she tossed her cup of coffee at him. There was a bit of a scuffle and the cops moved in quickly to control the situation. Here's the video below.

Dan read the names of the American servicemen killed by al Qaeda on the USS Cole 8 years ago today.

And what Muslim Day Parade would be complete without the stylings of the festering Islamic Thinkers Society? Just drink it in, folks.

The aforementioned black flag of Islamic jihad.

If you want to see something truly amazing, you must watch this video below to see the Islamic Thinkers getting kicked out of the post-parade street fair and citing the United States Constitution for their right to free speech!

Thanks to Tom for the excellent videos!!
More must-see video links below.

I also want to add that as much as the marchers objected to the foreign policy views of the conservative protesters, they had NO objection to the Islamic Thinkers signs--save for one lone man who confronted them.

Then there were these two signs pictured below that were on display at one of the booths at the street fair on 23rd Street and Madison where the parade ended.

Here is my entire slide show of today's events.

As always, UI, your reportage is amazing. You've really captured the hatred and violence and anti-American spirit of these "people" (more like animals!). May their dreams of a caliphate and the rule of sharia law NEVER be realized here or anywhere. With John McCain, we have a leader who will fight them. With Obama, we have someone who will follow them. God bless the USA and our freedoms! May they never wain!

Thank you, wish I had gotten in to join the festivities. Looks like the parade went near enough to Curry in a Hurry and Chez Le Chef on Lexington. Madison Square was the home of the original Madison Square Garden and before that it had PT Barnum's Museum show. It makes sense to assemble a jihadi theater freak show there.

Hey Mr.muslim, moslem, muhammadean or whatever spelling you like best.
You do not need to bother giving us a true understanding of islam here, see, we here know about taqiyya and kitman, besides, I learned all I needed to learn on 9/11. Just for your verification though I also learned from your quran, your ahadith, your sira's,oh yes, and history, right back to the beginning of muhammad and his co-horts and succsessors violent and counquering ways, battle of the trench, wars of compulsion, political assasanations and on and on and on.
What does our circle have against muslims, you follow islam which is a egotistic, misogynist, totaltarian, barbaric, archaic cult that has not left the 7th century and wants to implement the utterly despicable sharia laws everywhere in place of our constitution which many of us take great exception to.
Now, if you want to ply your deciet somewhere go find some loonie liberals who will fawn over you and be oohh so culturally understanding because it will not work here.
Also, I was one of those at the parade, you should not be accussing anyone of being hateful after the disgusting display that I witnessed.
Now, I also wish peace upon you and that you see the true light and join civilization, I will gladly pray to Christ(not isa) to save you if you wish.

Dear Anonymous Muslim

Nobody has a problem with Muslims. you're people, like us.

It's Islam we have a problem with.

As much as you beautifully feign the calm, wise and pragmatic demeanour it just doesn't stack up against your colleagues'"You're next" threats in some of the photos. Attitudes speak louder than words.

We know quite enough about Islam thanks. You think Mohamed was a sweet, righteous man. We think he was a greedy, deceitful, murderous, thieving, rapist paedophile. One of us is wrong.

What did you learn from 9/11 ??? The only thing that you learned from 9/11 is people with Arabic names attacked the Twin Towers. By definition, Islam stands for Peace. A true Muslim would never attack innocent civilians. I also lost many of my friends in 9/11. I had friends that worked in Building One.
You talk about knowing the history of Islam and our battles, etc. Guess what, the battle of the trenches was about fighting for our right to practice our religion...I guess that is what really scares you, because we conquered Mecca and the Arabian Peninsula. I am sure you also know about the Army with the Black Flags that no other army will be able to stop and when this army does come (and it will), I guarantee will not harm any civilians then either and they will be the True followers of Islam.

We do not want to instill our ways (Sharia) onto you and the masses. We just want to enjoy the same rights and opportunities as every other American.

I also want everyone to know that guy who called one of your people that derogatory name was wrong. A Muslim should not disrespect a woman like that. He should have stayed on his “side of the fence”.

I think the real problem is that you are afraid...Muslims are becoming integrated into the American Society, we are here to stay, we are becoming more educated and we have high ranking positions. Obviously from your bad grammar & spelling this would really bother you.

The only God I pray to is Allah and it is not civilized to promote HATE & Anger....

Peace Be Upon You

As a Muslim at the Parade, I was there to enjoy a day of happiness with fellow American Muslims. Since this was my first time at the Parade, I was surprised to see such negative from both your group (UI) and the Islamic Thinkers across from you. It is obvious that both groups are spreading one thing: Disunity and Hate.
This is fine; everyone is allowed to express themselves. Make no mistake; I am sure that the organizers of this parade of the people in the parade do not share the same "left wing" views. No we are for awareness of Islam and we want to educate everyone about the True Islam.

You speak so ill of The Holy Prophet (on Whom be Peace)...Check your facts:
1 - He gave all his wealth to charity and lived a simple life
2 - Before his Prophet Hood, he was known as the "Truthful One". All the leaders of Mecca trusted him.
3 - During the battles, he instructed the army to only fight on the battlefield and not to harm any civilians.

Yes, one of us is Wrong!!

I live quite far from America where I never wish to go. It is my first and probably last visit to this blog. I have seen the extent of hatred many People (like firster555) here have against Islam and Muslims. I dont know what is the meaning of Terrorism, Fascism, Barbarianism, Civilization etc in your dictionary. But I will just like to tell something about my land if somebody like to read. Our land was full of peace since long time. People of different religions were living together. But unluckily the Christians of Europe became powerful to capture us. Then they massacred a large population. Divided the people on the basis of religion to rule one group with the help of other. This prosecution continued for long time. Finally the Europeans went away after two world wars that was another Example of their greed. But later, Christian Americans came into field. They started ruling my land with the help of puppet dictators. We were forced against our will in the war against communism. Then to progress their agenda, they built a statue named "Terrorism" and asked for our blood to bath it. Now our blood is being used as fuel in war against terrorism.
So after this history of colonialism, world wars, cold war and terrorism in which the "Civilized" Christians massacred uncountable poor people as barbarians, fascists, uncultured, uncivilized and fascists (Most of whome did not even think or know about it) Americans very innocently ask "Why they hate us?"

Mr. muslim, I told you the taqiyya will not work. There is so much here I do not even know where to begin.
Problem #1, islam by definition means peace. To bad the word peace itself has a much different meaning in islam. You see, we understand that peace in islam means when the whole land is ruled by islam and non-muslims can only be tolerated as dhimmis then there is peace.
We also understand that in islam innocent civilians only refer to muslims as all non muslims are not considered innocent.
You talk about the Battle of the Trench(where hundreds of surrendered captives were beheaded)as just being a battle to practice your religion then boast about counquering Mecca and the whole Arabian Penisula. You can't even keep your taqiyya straight in the same sentence.
You guarantee the Army with Black Flags will come and be unstopable and then no civilians(because they will be the true followers of islam-muslims)) will be harmed. Wow, that just sounds so peaceful.
You do not want to instill Sharia? Really, no, really? This one is just to hilarious to even comment on. You say you just want to enjoy the rights that all Americans enjoy, not possible with sharia laws. Besides, these rights are earned, not granted, or at least they used to be.
As far as being intergrated into American society, why would I fear this, I would welcome intergration and assimiliation. The problem is islam's doctrines cannot allow this to happen, and yes, that does scare me.
As for the high rankings and education, Affirmitive Action is a wonderful thing, is it not?
Attacking spelling and grammar, wow, you must have got this one right out of the leftist playbook. Muslims in high ranking positions do not worry me because I cannot win a spelling bee, it worries me because the doctrines they follow are brutally oppressive and against everything our Constitution stands for.
The only God you pray to is allah and it is not civilized to promote hate and anger. I am assuming as a muslim you have actually read your quran and ahadith, the false God allah is nothing but hate and anger. You know, roasting skins and growing new ones to roast again and so forth.
I only learned that people with Arabic names attacked the Twin Towers? Actually, I learned just the opposite, that it had nothing to do with being Arabic but everything to do with islam. There are thousands of acts of terrorism and violence done every year in the name of islam and many of these attacks are done by muslims without Arabic names.
Now, please do not waste your time looking for all my grammatical mistakes, if we were posting on an english Grammar blog I promise I will try harder.
I also wish Peace upon you and will be praying that you will see the light and leave behind your culture of death.

PH, yes, one of us is wrong. You need to check the inconvienent facts about mohammad.
He married a six year old girl and consumated the marriage when she was only nine years old.
He was gleeful over the murders of an old man and a nursing mother because they dared to write poetry that was unflattering towards him.
He personally initiated many battles.
He instructed his warriors not to harm civilians on the battlefield? Again, when the defintion of civilian is muslim and all non-muslims are considered enemies this rings hallow.
The leaders of Mecca were more concerned with keeping their heads attached to their necks than understanding how truthful he supposedly was.
Now, I am well aware of the true islam and you do not need to educate me. When sharia and jihad are denounced by muslims(please, no jihad is an inner struggle nonsense here) then we can start talking about assimiliation and understanding, as you are most likely not aware of, understanding works both ways, not just the islamic way.

This is extremely sad.

The Muslim Day Parade is about celebrating being Muslims and being part of the American community/society. Not making of a political rally, not a terrorist rally, not an anti-whatever organization rally, not an anti-religious rally, not an anti-American rally but being part of the American landscape. This is a festive occasion.

What makes this parade unique is the many different nationalities, ethnic groups, race and local community members getting together and celebrating what we the Muslims believe in and acknowledge, that we Muslims are not going anywhere and the US is our home, and we are Americans and proud of it! There are American-Muslims in our every day life, yes even police officers, correction officer, fire fighters, that are protecting everyone, not Muslims alone! It is my home and I am not going anywhere.

The video does not show you that the individuals that were arguing were NOT part of the parade, but they were on the other side rallying against the parade too.

Also, why would NYC allow a permit to rally against the parade itself, to instigate other peoples belief and making false accusations on an entire religious belief!? What do you expect from your fellow human beings?!

How would you feel if you are part of a parade celebrating who/what you are, being a festive occasion and then there is a group/organization making false statements, instigating, causing hatred.

America is not about hate, but bringing people TOGETHER. I love America!

Since "Islamic Thinkers Society" are orthodox Muslims, then the ITS expresses the true, unvarnished, non-taqiyya views of Islam.

The racist, islamo-supremecist views of ITS are the views of the imams, sheiks, ayatollahs - who must be orthodox in order to be imams, sheiks, ayatollahs.

These same imams, sheiks, ayatollahs teach, indoctrinate their congregants in orthodox

Islam, and observant orthodox Muslims are at War with non-Muslims.

Think of India and Pakistan, who almost had a nuclear war, over land too, Kashmir.

It seems that wherever there are Muslims, there is terrorism.

Europe (UK, France, Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, Eastern Europe) is struggling with the Muslim invaders. Things are going to get "interesting".

Since you are so ignorant and stuck on the fact that Muslims practice taqqiyah then here is what your hero Daniel Pipes has to say about it:
NOTE: Sunni Muslims make up 85% of the Muslim population.

Daniel Pipes replies:

1. Taqiya is a Shi`i practice, not a Sunni one. (One can find some grounds for Sunni approval of the practice but I do not know of any instance when taqiya was actually sanctioned by Sunni religious authorities.)

2. It concerns hiding one's Shi`i affiliation, pretending to be a Sunni.

3. It is done only in circumstances of great stress, specifically when one's life is in danger.

Taqiya is, thus, a very limited recourse, not a general invitation to Muslims to lie at their convenience.

I appreciate that he gave an importance to what I said. Mr. Urban Infidel asked for my country. It is Pakistan. I will like to add another comment for somebody who is repeating a word Taqqiyah again and again. For records, I will like to tell that Majority of Muslims neither believe in or practice Taqqiyah. It is only practiced by a sect that is minority. If he claims to know about Islam, he must know this also.

Just as Pakistan has been a Muslim area for hundreds of years, Judea has been a Jewish area for thousands of years.

An Islamic World Does NOT Mean Peace either because once there is an Islamic state, or if there ever is Worldwide Sharia Law the "bombings, killings and mayhem " will only continue as the various sects of Islam battle it out for supremacy or equal rights, until the end of time...
absurd thought -
God of the Universe likes
one sect of Islam better

just they should be in control
force other sects to convert

We must never fear, resist or mock the precious and ever peaceful Islam. Who are we to say that raping 6 year-olds is immoral? Who are we to say that stoning gays and rape victims to death is evil? Who are we to say that killing hundreds of people every week in the name of Allah is the height of evil? That is just their culture and it MUST be respected. Morality is all relative, we must remember that.
absurd thought -
God of the Universe wants
all planets Islamic

Earth is one of many
in process of conversion

absurd thought -
God of the Universe wants
many Taliban planets

stonings and beheadings
billions served daily

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
allow Islamic conquest

enjoy the dhimmi life
of second class citizens

absurd thought –
God of the Universe says
convert the infidels

or make them pay a tax
if they don’t want to die

All real freedom starts with freedom of speech. If there is no freedom of speech there can be no real freedom.

Im a born raised highly educated white american and Im also a converted muslim. I just hope that all the ignorant people that have left hateful comments on here actually take the time to read an excerpt of the quran and realize islam is about peace. Its not a religion of hate or war its about peace and respect. Yes there are extremist out there but they are misinterpreting the meaning of our religion. Every religion has FUndamentalists this is why we have the conflict with israel vs Palestine. Every religion has its own series of crusades. 9/ll was caused by fundamentalists that do not understand the true meaning of Islam and were brainwashed by people with there own hate and interests at heart. One religion can not be blamed based on one mans hatred. These men who actually flew the planes and bombers who strap themselves with explosives and claim Islamic jihad are not martyrs. THese men commited suicide, suicide in islam is damnation. So i hope that people come to realize the truth of islam and realize its about peace and about the belief in one god.
