Most of you have probably already seen this story:

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.

Debbie Schlussel has a personal connection to the back story.

David Lunde offers this graphic juxtaposition:

Related: Via Allah, read this Ayaan Hirsi Ali interview. I’ll quote her closing words:

The Western mind-set—that if we respect them, they’re going to respect us, that if we indulge and appease and condone and so on, the problem will go away—is delusional. The problem is not going to go away. Confront it, or it’s only going to get bigger.

A reader sends another relevant story: Muslims tell Christians: ‘Make peace with us or survival of world is at stake’

Yes, it’s in the Koran.
