UPDATE: 10/14/08 In a conversation yesterday with Lars Hedegaard of the Free Press Society in Denmark, he made a very sagacious point. When Muslims lie down on Madison Avenue, it is not an act of prayer, it is an act of territorial control.
Notice how they line up - a line of soldiers, like a file. Rank and file. It's like an Army lined up for battle. That's what it is.
When they "paraded" down Madison Avenue, they are alternate yelling Allahu Akbar (Allah is great!) and Takbir! (expansion!)
UPDATE 4:01 am: An important middle of night observation, the rules are changing.
First, the difference between the fighters for free world over in Europe who get attacked, harassed, berated and in some cases physically beaten and us (in America) is law enforcement. The police in the US do their job. Magnificently. What was striking today was, for the first time since I began covering these demonstrations (three years and counting), an agitator was allowed behind our barrier and permitted to harass the patriots (as seen in the video). Later on, when a Muslim was filming on our side of the barrier in our designated area, screaming allahu akbar, I asked the cop why he was permitted to agitate where we had secured the space with a permit, she replied, "he's allowed on the sidewalk".
Also, it's noteworthy the policemen in uniform dropped to their knees and prayed on Madison Avenue while on duty (see pics). They removed their hats and shoes to pray. Now look, on their own time they can do what they want. But that is unacceptable. I am sure that shiz would not fly if it were a Christian, Jew, Jehovah, wiccan, pagan ...... bottom line seperation of church and state.
It is disturbing to think that the thin blue line is being erased and we only need to look across the pond to see the dark future.
I have been covering these things for three years now and as I have recently said, there has been a palpable change. It is getting uglier, more aggressive - violent even .Today was no different.
The parade was much smaller this year and there were a couple of American flags, most unusual. This is calculated. They do not want to hurt their candidate, Obama, in any way.
At first, I couldn't find the parade - went to Madison and there was nothing there but I heard a lot of parade noise on 5th Avenue so I walked down and there was this jubilant celebration. Shiny happy people in a sea of America flags - dancing and I'm like, this can't be it - and it wasn't. It was the Hispanic Day Parade. What a difference. A sea of colors and smiles - not the parade I was looking for.
I made my way back to Madison and found what I was looking for. I have a lot of coverage so you will have to click on the link on the bottom of this post. I do not want to slow down the load of this page any more than I have to.
The video must be watch. There is a very nasty incident recorded when the Muslims came over to our side (behind our barrier despite our permit) and began to proselytize - it got ugly. Watch it
This from the Jewess being verbally assaulted:
The goon you'll see in the video attacking me was on the other end of a rather simple question from me. Why was I given the apes and pigs rap. He gave me a vague answer. That led to another simple question from me. Does Israel have a right to exist? He started in on a history lesson. Was I familiar with Balfour, Rothschild. His eyes were dripping blood.
Rothschild, he told me, was a Zionist not a Jew. I'm both, I told him. Zionist, Jewish and proud as hell. Then Atlas, a hero of mine, showed up with the camera and she takes it from there. She always has my back.
As I was being led away by the police the goon on the left told me he will rape me 50 times so I remain nameless. Proud, Jewish and nameless.
I covered it last year (2007demonstration here).-- this was much smaller. Deliberately so. Click link below for full coverage
"You can talk and you can talk and you can preach but people, in the final analysis, people have to feel it on their bodies and in their daily lives
I doubt that America will wake up for what they are in for in until they're in for it.
When I walk around in New York and I was recently in Washington, I see the signs. The best indication of the level of Islamisation in the country will always be the number of veiled women in the streets. Once you see veiled women in the streets, you know what's going to happen".
Stop the jihad in INDIA!Lots of Iranian flags.
Hard for little girls to play in all that cloth. One of the little girls said I wish I could take this off!" (listen to the video)

UPDATE: GM points out "the fellow in a NYPD uniform kneeling down with the eagles on his shoulder is at the rank of Inspector. He seems awfully damn young to be that high up the ranks unless PC has gone completely batshit.... Oh, wait"
Your taxpayer dollars at work! Are cops (above) on duty?
