UPDATE: September 29; Part 7 (last video ) is now posted
September 28: The first of two parade videos (Parts 6 and 7) is up now (please scroll down for Part 6)
New videos posted: September 27, 2010
(please scroll down for Parts 4 and 5)
Part 1: The parade came to an end at Madison Square Park at 23rd and Madison Ave. The early part of ceremony had an award to Mayor Bloomberg as well as The Priest, the Rabbi and the Imam. (who seemed to be a one-note band of sorts)
Part 2: Three speakers from ICNA, MAS and the Islamic Cultural Center of NY
Part 3: This speaker is Nihad Awad of CAIR (Council of Islamic Relations) was one of the Grand marshals of the parade.
Part 4: While many spoke on the stage of how the American Muslim is “suffering ” at the hands of bigots they used three groups of lovely children to sing of the “joys” and ” peace” that Islam brings. Good ol’ Da’wah.
Part 5: The prayers before the parade were at 38th and Madison this year (even though it ws published at 41st as it had been in previous years). There was a delay putting out the tarps (prayer “rugs”) due to this location. Seemed police weren’t ready to close the intersection in time for the zuhur prayer. The Imam kept singing. There is a wudu basin on Madison this year. The tarps were laid out and finally the prayers (at approx. 10 minutes into video )
Part 6: The parade began with flags..lots of flags followed the the police band playing “This is My Country”…followed by the Muslim Police Officers Association. Then lots of local masjids, mosques, floats celebrating the Victory Mosque that destroyed the great Jewish Temple….women’s groups, schools, hijabs, niqabs,families…. da’wah was loud and bold for the Ummah of North America with lots of loving, peaceful quotes from Mohammed and chants of takbir. takbir. takbir.
Part 7: I walked with the parade to Madison Square Park at 25th Street. The takbir. takbir. takbir. mixed in with other chants was relentless and then…the occasional…silence .The parade was quite simple. It was families, children, schools and masjids and, of course, the da’wah signs. At the park, there was a popular da’wah table(FREE)andthen more prayers were sung from the stage. After a young woman with a lovely voice sang the National Anthem, the program continued with the speakers ( See videos 1,2 and 3)
On September 26, our first observations :
The parade seemed to be confused. Announced to start at 41st and Madison , but they were all at 38th st. the police were not blocking off the intersections so the prayer tarps could be put down. The clock was ticking and the Imam was BEGGING the police to get the intersections blocked.Police pointed out that they weren’t where they were supposed to be….I think they weren’t planning on closing an intersection (interesting)
Slide show is of prayers and the TARPS on Madison Avenue. The parade floats, some signs and banners….and the children….Vodpod videos no longer available.
The speakers did a lot of complaining about Park 51 with the usual bigots, hatred slander and it was no surprise that it was also a LOVE-Fest for Bloomberg and Obama.
The unannounced theme: Da’wah. To Educate and rewrite Islam’s “history”.
9-29-10: And a few more pictures will be posted.
UPDATE 10-14-10 ALL seven videos are now posted. Just added John Bolton’s speech (in 2 parts)
In Part 1 (John Bolton) The first 3 minutes has unsteady camera trying to shoot over crowd. Decided to black-out the video in those sections so video could be posted . Please LISTEN at those spots. Sound is good . Speech is great.
In Part 2 (John Bolton) It was difficult holding camera over heads in this dense crowd. It was a fabulous (but long) speech so I didn’t catch the very end. Only missed the wrap-up at the end.
Slide Show Number 1Vodpod videos no longer available.
11 AM, September 23,2010. Rally to protest the presence of Ahmadinejad at the UN. Brave Iranians came together, joined by Jews and Christians and among the speakers were Former Ambassador the to the U.N. John Bolton and also former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
America came out to protest the murderous Ahmadinejad; this tyrant who was welcomed at the United Nations. Unwanted in Iran, he steals elections and terrorizes and murders those who protest and beg for freedom.
We have lots of pictures still to post from the “No to Ah’jad” rally across the U.N. It was one of the more beautiful rallies we’ve seen. The purple balloons, scarves and caps; the confetti stars being shot high above the crowd, it was visually gorgeous. Yet, the message was any thing but …
Some times uplifting and at other times deeply disturbing that the UN should give a public forum to this holocaust denying, 9-11 truther: Sickening.
Part 1: The Protest (opening) and the crowd
Part 2 : includes excerpts from Rudy Guiliani
Part 3: The Marxist-Iranians were set-up at the corner of 47th and 2nd ave. The police tried to move them, said they had no amplified sound permit, but as usual….after much chatter between police and the Leftists…. the Lefty/Soc/Progressive/ Commies: Marxists : They didn’t move.
A whole contingent of sign-waving Che-loving Reds arrived, with their SECULAR protest. Then, in the distance we heard a huge roar and saw lots of confetti. This was when Maryam Rajavi, leader of the Iranian Resistance , was introduced to speak.
Apologies for BOUNCY CAMERA work… the zoom was hyper sensitive …and I was having more difficulty than usual keeping it steady…
Part 4: Maryam Rajavi, leader of Iranian Resistance, spoke…
Part 6: During the protest, South of the stage (at 1st Avenue) where the rally took place was the Falun Gong. Never saw them in action before (and so QUIET). Then as I left the rally, there was Crazy Commie Guy on 2nd Avenue. What a contrast….
There was unexpected street-theatre depicting the sharia law horrors of hangings and stonings so loved by this vile dwarf.
There were the Marxist Iranians accompanied by the local Reds and of course (for those of you who know him: Crazy Commie Guy!)
It is an outrage that the madman of Tehran, Mahmud Ahmadinejad was granted a platform at the United Nations. “…a sad day for people of all faiths” .
Tibetans, Camaroons, Chinese Fulong Gong and the La Raza contingent. And throw in a new Leftist org called, Iran 180.
These Leftists formed a new group called “Iran 180” and hosted a press conference on Monday with Anthony Weiner and Jerry Nadler . Today they brought their GIANT head-puppets (no body but the hard-core left drags these giant heads around) It’s De rigueur . Freshman year: “How to make Giant Puppet Heads for Protests 101”
TONS of pictures of this eclectic rally with one more slide show to be posted…
One last video is left to be posted ….

It’s an out rage that this unelected tyrant has been welcomed by the United Nations. Just ask these Iranians
End the Terrorist Regime
It is time to UNITE and FREE IRAN
September 23, 2010, the outrage continues when the murderous Ahmadinejad speaks at the United Nations.

Another post from Columbus Circle Protest on September 19, is posted here
“This is a Day of Outrage”. On TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2010 @ 9:45 AM, at the SOUTHWEST CORNER OF 40TH & 1ST AVENUE, the New York Board of Rabbis (NYBR) gathered at 1st Avenue and 40th street to protest the President of Iran . “There is no place for this evil-entity to be at the U.N. A sad day for New Yorkers and Americans.”
“There is no place for this evil-entity to be at the U.N. A sad day for New Yorkers and Americans.”
“Ah’jad, a man who brutalizes the opposition. A tyrant . A murderer who is being given an honorable welcome by the U.N. , when he should be locked away.; put on-trial and locked away for the crime of genocide.”
They gathered at the UN to protest and to voice their condemnation of the madman of Tehran, Mahmud Ahmadinejad being granted a platform at the United Nations. “This is a sad day for people of all faiths.”
After a few short speeches, they formed a Human Link Across First Avenue in Protest; singing and the blowing the shofar.
The New York Board of Rabbis (NYBR), is the largest interdenominational
rabbinic body in the world representing over 700 Rabbis from the New York
metropolitan area .
After linking arms and forming a chain to block 1st Avenue in protest the police then asked them all to leave the street or they would be arrested. With the blowing of the shofar, they willingly and respectfully cleared 1st Avenue.
“The voices of the murdered cry-out and the voice of moral conscience will follow this evil (Ah’jad) until he is defeated and overcome. Goodness will prevail.”
“This is a Day of Outrage”
It’s time to play: GUESS THE THEME OF THE 2010 MUSLIM DAY PARADE
Grand Marshals Ghulam Nabi Fai and Nihad Awad
SEPTEMBER 26th , 2010
1PM Madison Ave /41 Street NY City
ZAHUR PRAYER ON MADISON AVE.
Famous Muslim entertainer Zain Bhikha to perform in our parade
They say, ” Our parade always has Islamic Theme and a Muslim Grand Marshal. It represents many Muslim nationalities and their cultures. At the end of the parade, we have a bazaar where vendors are selling foods, clothing, books and etc. from different countries. Also included are programs for the kids.”
NMAGZ: So, we went looking for that theme. In 2009 the theme seemed to be the 2010 census:
And here’s the links to the Parade in 2008 That year the “coincidence” was that the parade was infringing on Columbus Day. So they seemed to be “celebrating’ Columbus day.
Looking back, the 2007 Parade was a water-shed year when the average American discovered this parade in the wake of the NYC Intifada T-shirt; a summer very similar the Ground Zero Mosque up-roar.
What surprises lay ahead since it seems, the only poster for a parade that’s planned at the end of this week is from 2009…… What’s up?? There are lots of questions…lots of secrets….and no answers….
Side note from NMAGZ: Last year this blogger was told to stop taking pictures on a public street, at the 2009 Muslim day Parade. then last week I was told to stop taking pictures, again, at a public candle lighting rally on September 10th, 2010. Each time I was told that I was making them (Muslims…Lefties) nervous (taking too many pictures).
Why was everyone else was permitted to remain at this parade,taking pictures, but ME? Public Events at which I do nothing but take pictures and/or video. That’s what they want, right?! They plan this event so we can watch them praying on Madison Avenue and now they say No Pictures cause we’re with our families and we’re praying…. I chose not to leave the Muslim Day Parade, but I was ‘politely” forced to leave on September 10. Not right. So not right.
Interesting observation regarding the Muslim Day Parade we found from a reader at John Derbyshire’s column at National Review ( from April of this year):
Daniel: I’ll register some mild foreboding. To the best of my knowledge, the Muslim Day Parade is the only one currently dedicated to celebration of a religious, as opposed to national, heritage. The history of such things, though sparse, is not encouraging.”
Not sure if this comment at Derbyshire was correct, but certainly the religious factor is front and center at each Muslim day Parade. Are we supposed to ignore it? On a public street? Are we NO longer permitted to photograph them during this public display? Permission not granted.
This is all too similar to our assault (a NY Post Photographer and myself) in January 0f 2009. At a Hate-Israel (Fakestinian) Rally in Times Square. The paid leftists instigators said with great confidence to the NY Post Photographer , “We don’t want your press”. From what we observed, the police assigned to this protest were mostly Muslim and allowed this shutting down of a free press. Their behavior has only gotten bolder in 2010, as Dearborn, Michigan has revealed.
Now in 2010, what might the unknown theme be for this parade? Looking at the backgrounds of two Grand Marshals, perhaps there might be a clue… or two.…
Nihad Awad is the Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). After the Gulf War, he was Public Relations Director for the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), described by U.S. government officials as an Hamas front organization. He has said, “I am in support of the Hamas movement more than the PLO…”
More from InvestigativeProject.org
Nihad Awad is among the founders of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and serves as its executive director. In that role, he has attained a degree of political clout, invited to stand beside President George W. Bush at the Islamic Center of Washington days after the 9/11 attacks. Before that, Vice President Al Gore appointed Awad to a civil rights advisory panel for the White House Commission on Aviation Safety and Security.
These are influential recognitions for a man with past ties to Hamas, designated a foreign terrorist organization by the United States in 1995. In fact, Awad publicly declared “I am in support of the Hamas movement,” during a March 1994 symposium at Barry University.”
By Dr. Ghulam Nabi Fai
19 April, 2010
Dr. Manmohan Singh, the Prime Minister of India’s assertion that “there can be no redrawing of borders in Jammu Kashmir” and former Indian Supreme Court judge Saghir Ahmad’s recommendation “to restore the autonomy to the extent possible” need to be supplemented by some observations from the view point of the people of Kashmir. These deserve to be borne in mind by all those who wish the conflict to be justly resolved once and for all.
When the Kashmir dispute erupted in 1947-1948, the United States took the stand that the future status of Kashmir must be ascertained in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of the people of the territory. The U.N. Security Council adopted a resolution on 21 April 1948 which was based on that unchallenged principle. So the issue in Kashmir is about the right of self-determination which was agreed upon by both India and Pakistan, endorsed by the Security Council and accepted by the international community.
The concept to convert the existing cease-fire line into a permanent International boundary is an ideal non-existent solution. Any such suggestion is an insult to the intelligence of the people of Kashmir. One cannot imagine a better formula for sowing a minefield in South Asia that will lead them to a nuclear disaster. The people revolted against the status quo and status quo cannot be an answer? Also, Kashmiris wish to emphasize that their land is not a real estate which can be parceled out between two disputants but the home of a nation with a history far more compact and coherent than India’s and far longer than Pakistan’s. No settlement of their status will hold unless it is explicitly based on the principles of self-determination and erases the so-called line of control, which is in reality the line of conflict.
The idea of autonomy for Kashmir is an absolute fallacy. Here one has to rely on a provision of the Indian Constitution. All Constitutions of the world are subject to amendments and Indian Constitution is no exception. If not now, in the foreseeable future, the Indian legislature can delete this provision in the Constitution and the move will not even need a debate in the Parliament.
Secondly, Kashmiris have had the experience of a limited autonomy, which was first practiced under a personal understanding between Prime Minister Nehru and Sheikh Abdullah and later provided for by Section 370 of the Indian Constitution. Kashmir was granted autonomous powers over all sectors excluding communications, defence and foreign affairs. It was eroded and eventually whittled away by the forces of circumstances.
My opinion was confirmed by a poll conducted jointly by major news outlets on Aug 12, 2007: CNN-IBN and Hindustan Times in India and Dawn and News in Pakistan. A majority of those polled in Kashmir Valley (87% to be precise) preferred freedom (Azadi). The Azadi means both the rejection of line of control into an international border and rejection of concept of autonomy.
However, there is but one fair, just, legal, and moral solution to Kashmir which was provided by the United Nations. The procedures contemplated at early stage of the dispute at the United Nations for its solution may be varied in the light of changed circumstances but its underlying principle must be scrupulously observed if justice and rationality are not be thrown overboard. The setting aside of the UN resolution is one thing; the discarding of the principle they embodies is altogether another. So the settlement has to be in accordance with the wishes of the people; impartially ascertained; in conditions of freedom from intimidation.
Kashmiris are open to a constitutional dispensation that answers all of India’s legitimate national security and human rights concerns. With regard to the former, they are willing to explore permanent neutrality for Kashmir along the model of the 1955 Austrian State Treaty and a renunciation of war or the threat of force in international affairs along the model of Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution. They are willing to consider abandoning a military force like Costa Rica, Haiti, and Panama. Moreover, they hold no objection to providing community quotas in government offices along the lines of the 1960 Constitution for the Republic of Cyprus to safeguard against invidious discrimination of any religious or ethnic group, i.e., Pandit, Buddhist, Sikh, and Muslim alike.
With good faith by all parties common ground leading to a final settlement of the Kashmir tragedy can be discovered. An appointment of a special envoy by President Obama, like Bishop Desmond Tutu will hasten the way of peace and prosperity in the region of South Asia.
Dr. Ghulam Nabi Fai is Executive Director, Kashmiri American Council. Dr. Fai can be reached at email@example.com
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s assertion that Kashmir is an integral part of India needs to be supplemented by some observations from the viewpoint of the people of Kashmir.
Let the Games Begin as we leave you with two proposals:
1. Would love to get a consensus on what the theme might be for 2010 (with these two individuals as the Grand Marshals)…can you guess??
2. How long will I last at the parade this year before I am forcibly removed . The Candle lighting last week was about 30 minutes and the Muzzie Parade 2009 …ditto….
And then if you can, join us at the parade.

After the rally was over, they was some meeting and greeting with the crowd (even though security had to remain on-alert)
So…who do you think the police were protecting from violence….US or THEM
And here’s their “non political” flyer. Our rally was a respectful Rally of Remembrance …. NOT POLITICIZING. Read how THEY rallied, their hard-core anti-American leftists on 9-11 and the dhimmi-press ….said THEY were non-political:
And the ubiquitous and very political 9-11 (We are Change) Truthers were there (all day and into the evening):
The Remembrance Rally was crawling with mainstream press (cameras and reporters)literally falling all over each other but they shamefully give face-time to all of these weirdos and Leftists, not to the Remembrance Rally.
Guess their supervisors/editors don’t like the message:
WHERE is all of the video they took the verifies how peaceful, respectful and HUGE this rally was. This was at 1:30…and the crowd was into the second block already. People were packed shoulder to shoulder…all the way to Chambers by 3 :00 Pm and the police turned away hundreds if not thousands….
Stand Tall. Stand Proud. And Say NO to a Mosque at Ground Zero. Not Now. Not Ever!!

And the first of a series of New York Protests Against Ahmadinejad began on Sunday, September 19, 2010
The next large protest rally will be on September 23….
Like clock-work, the UN and its cronies have rolled out the welcome mat for this murderer.
StandWithUs.org hosted this informational protest rally in Central Park at Columbus Circle…
Right across from CNN
CNN…so close…yet … so far away when it comes to press-coverage
The purpose of this rally was to show opposition to Ahmadinejad and his human rights abuses, as well as his nuclear aspirations.
To stand in solidarity with those whose voices have been silenced in Iran they stood with signs and tape over their mouths to demonstrate that opposition to Iran’s violent regime by its oppressed people has been silenced.
But this time the murderous , anti-semite is staying at the Hilton, just around the corner from the Israeli Consulate.

Ahjad is welcomed and unchallenged by the same press that thinks there is no veiled threat to our freedoms behind the building of a Victory Mosque at Ground zero.
Could this story get any CREEPIER? Murderers and tyrants and summits…oh my…..
“A summit of U.S. Muslim organizations (a Pow-wow) is planned [for today and Sunday] in New York City to address both the project and a rise in anti-Muslim sentiments and rhetoric that has accompanied the debate over the project. It has yet to be seen whether the group will emerge with a firm stand on the proposed community center, dubbed Park51. The primary purpose of the two-day meeting is to talk about ways to combat religious bigotry.”
And then we found this: TIME has two disturbing videos which are intended to show the happy, peaceful American converts, in particular, worshiping during Ramadan. TIME took the same footage and managed to make two videos out of it. With the dhimmi-press in lock-step, TIME marches in to the belly-of-the-beast: Park51…
“Iran’s loopy dictator, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is headed to the Big Apple this week for the meeting of the UN General Assembly. In the spirit of “peace” in his region, Ahmadinejad said from Syria yesterday that Middle Eastern countries will “disrupt” American and Israeli peace efforts.”
[And those peaceful UN cronies have no problem with this threat.]
Iran’s Holocaust-denying, Zionist-hating leader also called for the release of eight of his “illegally arrested and detained” countrymen. Read more:
This is SICK. Just plain SICK : Why couldn’t the UN have been the target that day for those virgin-hungry Muslims.
The Mad Dwarf has come-to-town and we have a Muslim summit…ne POW-WOW, bent on getting their Victory mosque built at Ground Zero.
More than ever we must persevere : NO Mosque at Ground Zero. Not Now. Not Ever!
