Did the MAS and CAIR Foment a Riot at New York Amusement Park?
A tip of the chapeau to Judy B.
3000 Muslims converged on the Rye-Playland amusement park in suburban Westchester County, New York to celebrate the holiday of Eid-ul Fitr at the conclusion of Ramadan. The Muslims came to the amusement park in a program sponsored by the Muslim American Society (MAS) of New York, a Muslim Brotherhood front group. Rye- Playland, a facility I knew well from having lived in neighboring Fairfield County, Connecticut, had introduced safety rules three years ago for headgear to prevent accidents. This safety precaution was explained by the amusement park’s operators and the Westchester County Parks Commission to the MAS well in advance of the Muslim crowd entering the amusement park. When several women with children decided to enter roller coaster rides, they were barred.from doing so by police. What ensued was a riot with arrests made by the more than 100 Westchester County police called in to quell the melee . Of course, the provcation was immediately seized on by Muslims and by the New York Chapter of CAIR. Was this a failure to communicate or more likely a provocation to assert Muslim demands on this final celebration of Ramadan. Muslims had come to Rye-Playland in prior years without this altercation occuring.
Here are the details from a New York Daily News report of what could have been a’ failure to communicate’ or an outright provocation..
Rye Playland was shut down Tuesday after cops scuffled with Muslims upset that women wearing head scarves were barred from the rides, witnesses said.
Fifteen people, including three women, were charged with disorderly conduct and assault in the chaos, authorities said.
