did you know that we've painted the empire state building green!?!? well not paint, really, but it appears to be green to honor the end of ramadhan. angel has a great post and great imagery here and both defiant infidel and debbie over at right truth add to angel's information.
i have placed a call to their pr department - specifically a ms. melanie marsh - and left a message that i am appalled at the idiocy of honoring a group especially in new york where we should all still have such a violent recollection of what the muslim terrorists did to our nation. i am not going to hold my breath waiting for a return call.
the empire sate building's official internet site has an entire page devoted to the history of the lighting of the building and another for the upcoming schedule. it's important to note that several people are saying that this is the first time the building will be completely green, but clearly this isn't the case:

wow, i wonder if they did it that way because they wanted to be able to say it wasn't the only thing that warranted an all green e.s.b.?!?!
please join us in calling and registering your dissatisfaction over this horrendous act of political correctness. i wonder what color they light the building to commemorate easter or jewish passover? perhaps the other jewish holidays?
