heh, heh......utter confusion reigns in the UK as well, the Saudi 'controlled' Regents Park Islamic Centre declared Eid celebration today as did numerous satellite followers around the Country but many local independent Islamic Centres are celebrating on Saturday! heh, heh......According to the "moonsighting.com", the new moon sighting in Europe is today and the Saturday celebration is more in order for the European Countries. heh, heh......

I know that not all Muslims are in league with terrorists, but I can't help feeling that lighting the Empire State Building green is like erecting an annual 2nd Amendment display in Columbine's front lawn.

If there were a unilateral condemnation of those acts by everyone in the Islamic community, that would be one thing. But, that really isn't the way things are, is it?

heh, heh.....my view is that lighting the ESB is a great step towards 'building bridges' and shows to the world that 'America' appreciates the importance of this auspicious day of EID for Muslims. The Terrorists lurk in the 'sewers' and have dragged America's image along with them to their newly found abode. This celebration has nothing to do with 'Terrorism' or those who perform such atrocities in the name of Religion or Islam but unfortunately the 'ignorant' few make a concerted effort to associate all Islamic activities/people/etc. with 'Terrorism', as is clearly evident by some earlier posts in this thread. Unfortunately, there are 'rotten apples' within the Islamic Communities which need to rooted out and the process is already in place, albeit slow progress! News Media has recently placed huge emphasis on publicising the 'return' of highly educated and sensible people who had been unduly influenced by these 'rotten apples' by preaching distorted facts of Islam to suit their own ulterior motives/agenda! I have met many Muslims in positions of esteem within their respective communities who have taken drastic measures to ensure that proper action is taken against any 'rotten apples'. Also, regretably there are various split factions and lobbies within the Islamic 'circles', therefore, unilateral condemnation appears media-elusive but rest assured, it is all happening! Also, Bush's post 9-11 absurd rhetoric did more harm than good for maintaining goodwill between his Administration and the Muslims worldwide and has since been on the decline! His 'pledge' to make the world a safer place has certainly back-fired on him on a massive scale! heh, heh........the Queen travels around in an open-top horse drawn carriage while the President of America on visiting UK travels in a sealed bullet/bomb proof steel capsule! heh, heh.......safer world?
