    I dont see a problem with it, if its lit for Christmas and Hanukkah, then why not celebrate a Muslim holiday, its a major religion something like 1 billion followers, just like Christianity not everyone is a freakin terrorist,

    u people can't forget that Christians used terrorism by blowing up Abortion clinics across the country... We have Religious freedom in this country and if they wanna light the building green for a holiday then let em light it green, Whats the Big Deal?

    Because when you get right down to it, it really has nothing to do with any holiday. It's about the 'symbolism'. Nothing is ever as it seems. This kind of stuff is centuries old and as complicated a knotted Palm Tree Root.

    Just because some crazy people call themselves Christians, certainly doesn't mean they are any more than someone getting behind the wheel of a truck means they're a trucker. Or someone putting a bandaid on a wound is a doctor. There will always be those who are extremists. The problem with the Muslim community wanting to have that lit up is the same as a so called Christian demanding that the mosques be lit up over in the east. It shows no humility nor remorse for what happened. It does show a haughty, prideful, demanding arrogancey to once again push America and the morons who believe the Koran is a peaceful religion into getting their way.

    That makes as much sense as Japan asking us to light up the Pearl Harbor Memorial for their new year, or us going to Bagdad and demanding they light up their mosque (sp) for our Christmas.....somethings just shouldnt be done!:biggrin_25513:

    But then again this is America and the powers that be expect us to be PC and follow all the rest of the sheep over the cliff.

    It doesn't matter, This is The United States of America and we Enjoy Religious Freedom you have the option to not like it but you cannot tell them what they can and cannot do... That would be unfair treatment, Regardless of what some of the people who practice the religion act like there are Alot More Moderates.

    You cannot Paint everyone with the same brush......

    We are the Country of Freedom and if we Compromise that Freedom then we stand for nothing..

    And if i remember right Iranians held demonstrations in the Streets and Marches Expressing their Remorse for the September 11, 2001 Attacks.. Muslims have shown remorse you just have to want to see it and quit holding everyone of that faith as accountable... There are Muslims in every country in this World not just the middle east and we need to be Christian like and forgive and accept them back into our community... not all of them are strapping bombs to their chests and killing Americans and blowing up buildings..

    I've read books and heard Muslims talking about what their account of what lead them to what happened in the middle east from most accounts there used to be hundreds of Muslim Religious Schools and many scholars who studied the Muslim faith, but radicals began taking over and got a follower ship then slowly began closing the schools, and the number of those schools had dropped from hundreds to less than 5, and it dumbed down the followers of the faith letting extremism slowly take hold...

    Nothing happens overnight it takes time and planning just like Nazi Germany took 8 years to take place.... people will notice sudden changes but Tiny changes over time go unnoticed and thats how things like this happen
