Police arrest 15 at Playland in dispute over Muslim headwear
A melee broke out Tuesday afternoon at Playland Amusement Park when Muslim visitors became angry that the park was enforcing its ban on headgear by prohibiting the women from wearing their traditional head coverings on some rides.
Police from at least nine agencies converged on the park beginning at 3 p.m. after county police sought assistance in responding to the disturbance, which involved 30 to 40 people.
The park was crowded with Muslims celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr, one of Islam’s two major holidays. Most were from community groups in Westchester and New York City as part of a daylong event arranged by the Muslim American Society of New York.
“It’s unfortunate because everybody just wants to be home with their families today,” said Zead Ramadan of the Council on American Islamic Relations.
Earlier, a park cashier told a Journal News reporter that a woman wearing a hijab either pushed or hit a ride operator who forbade her from going on the ride. She said a police officer tried to restrain the woman and the woman’s husband took offense, at which point a multiple-person fight broke out.
Yet again, we see that the "moderate" American Muslim is no more than a conjured character of the left in order to further deny the threat of Islam. No, these Muslims are not killing anybody. But what does behavior like this tell you? It tells me that they believe they are above the law, that their "religion" makes them superior to all others, and that if anyone questions them, disagrees with them, or tells them they cannot do something they want to do then they are a victim. Like I have said before, Islam is incompatible with American society, and the West in general. Muslims are consciously using our Constitution and leniency against us.
