New York City’s Madison Avenue was the site of the 29th annual Muslim Day Parade on Sunday. Last year’s Muslim Day Parade sparked some controversy as the black flags of jihad were spotted along the parade route. According to reports from a couple of sources, no black flags or flags from the Islamic State were on display.
However, that does not mean the parade was without controversy.
A marching band from the NYPD and a contingent of New Jersey Girl Scouts in Muslim attire kicked off the event. The streets were filled with flag-waving marchers, pro-Islam floats and a demonstration of a hanging.
That’s right, a hanging:
The mannequin seen dangling from a noose on this float was wrapped in the flag of Egypt. It’s unclear exactly what it was meant to represent.
