Muslim Day Parade 2015


 What a difference a year makes.  The 2015 Muslim Day Parade was extremely toned down in blunt contrast to last year's parade.

 The theme of this year's parade was:  
"Muhammad: A Blessing to All Mankind." 
I'll just leave that right here for now..
Except for a Muslim motorcycle club dubbed 'Umma M.A.' United Muslim Bikers that blared a recorded 'end-of-the-world' warning while revving their engines down Madison Avenue, it was short, uneventful and there was very little else to see.

Virtually stripped of all political street theater it was smaller than any other parade over the last several years.  No black flags of jihad flying, no blood-drenched Muslim Brotherhood photo displays or white-robed, somber women trucked down the avenue in a cage.  Gone was the female effigy swinging from a noose, overseen by thugs dressed up like thugs brandishing 'play' automatic weapons, and whip-cracking ‘Pharoahs’ being pulled on chariots by demonstrators dressed at Egyptian military etc.  Absent of any spectacle, one might almost have to ask: 'Was it really even a Muslim Day Parade?'  Also missing from the march were children from various private Muslim schools as well as certain mosques throughout the city quite notable by their omission.

 But after of all the controversy the parade generated over the last couple of years it is not surprising that they tamped down on their radicals and put them out of sight.  But I’ve seen the parade expand and contract in the past in response to negative publicity, this time most remarkably because recently it had been escalating into increasing new levels of Islamic political aggression.
Predictably, Syria was the failed Muslim state du jour.

Additionally absent from this parade, like all others before it, were the spectators. There are never any people lined up along the streets cheering them on.  It generates no crowds and the emptiness effect is only amplified by the sleepy Sunday midtown.  It draws no people at all, especially compared to all of the other NYC parades in Manhattan.  
 I suppose this might be taken as reassuring to us infidels here in New York City, considering how a Muslim Day Parade would roll out today in any given European city.  Now, there’s a sobering thought.

Even the prayer on Madison Avenue was much, much smaller than usual.

A group of Christian proselytizers were not greeted warmly at the parade.  So much for brotherly love and all that 'people of the book' taqiyya.
