UKDailyMail: Fears of an anti-Muslim backlash as major festival Eid al-Adha falls on 15th anniversary of 9/11

Anti-Muslim Backlash?!!?!!? AYFKM?

UKDailyMail: Fears of an anti-Muslim backlash as major festival Eid al-Adha falls on 15th anniversary of 9/11 

Muslim leaders in the US fear people will think they are celebrating 9/11 after it emerged a major festival has the potential to fall on September 11 this year.

According to the lunar calendar that Muslims follow for religious holidays, Eid al-Adha looks set to fall around the 15th anniversary of the 2001 Al Qaeda atrocity which claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 people.

And as they prepare to mark the 'feast of sacrifice' there are concerns among the Muslim community that people will misinterpret the festivities as a celebration of the attacks, which saw terrorists flying hijacked jets into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.


Never forget...never forgive...
Tenth Anniversary of 9/11, a new memorial was dedicated Meanwhile the local mosque (across the street) held a belated eid carnival within spitting distance. 

While waiting at a traffic light at the corner, cursing that I was without a camera that day, I witnessed celebrating children from the mosque sliding down an air filled amusement - directly facing the new memorial under final preparations for the 10th anniversary dedication (2011). It looked like the mosque was intentionally mocking the anniversary by directly placing that amusement facing the memorial - with children gleefully sliding down the ramp - as if mocking the victims who fell from the twin towers on 9/11. 

That mosque has never held another carnival in that location before or since. All festivities were held on their property behind or next to the mosque. Keep in mind, it was no longer eid when this took place in 2011.
