    Post Empire State Building Tower lit for Islamic Holydays

    NEW YORK - The Empire State Building will be illuminated green this weekend to mark the Islamic holy days of Eid-al-Fitr (EED-ALL-FEET-er).

    The joyous "Festival of Fast-breaking" marks the end of Ramadan, a month of intense spiritual renewal.

    This year is the first time the famous skyscraper will be aglow for the Islamic holiday. A spokeswoman for the building's owner says it will be an annual event, in the same tradition of the yearly skyscraper lighting for Christmas and Hanukah.

    Love all living things whose humble task is not opposed in any way to yours, to ours: men with simple hearts, honest, without vanity and malice, and all the animals, because they are beautiful, without exception and without exception indifferent to whatever "idea" there may be. Love them, and you will see the eternal in the glance of their eyes of jet, amber, or emerald. Savitri Devi

    LOL I heard about that. I wonder if office buildings in Egypt or Iraq will ever be lit up for Midsummer?

    British Prime Minister Gordon Brown recorded a special video message for Eid:

    Quite what our debt to "Islamic philosophy" is I don't know. As the name implies, it is/was entirely concerned with the Islamic religion and was primarily based on borrowing vast amounts of Greek thought.
