The people look a lot healthier than those in Somalia.

was that taken on a typical day at the mall or a special 1/2 off if you are a muslim sale day?

So what? Somalis should only shop at small ethnic shops in run down neighborhoods? So they can be condemned for refusing to assimilate into American culture?

50-100 years ago that video could have been of a Polish neighborhood, North Beach in SF (Italian), Chinatown or Japantown in one of many cities, a German or Norwegian Lutheran church holding services in those respective languages.

Or maybe James Woods could take a stroll tomorrow down El Camino Real in Sunnyvale and Santa Clara, with its dozens of Indian and Korean restaurants and specialty grocery stores.

Or maybe he could walk through the Walmart in Milpitas, with its mostly ethnic Vietnamese and Chinese customers.

I was just there last month. It does not look like that. In-fact I think I saw maybe 2 people the whole time that was strongly Muslim. Must have been some sort of program or outreach that day.

The Hijab shop.


Muslim women shop at boutiques for that kind of thing, not all malls. There are a bunch of stores like that in Hamtramck and Dearborn. They buy clothes to wear under their cover-ups at the mall.

Correct, the video is not a typical day. Most likely a special event such as this one:


The incident occurred on Eid Al Adha – also known as “The Festival of Sacrifice (http://islam.about.com/od/hajj/a/adha.htm)” an Islamic holy day that celebrates the Prophet Abraham’s obedience to Allah’s request to sacrifice his son, Isaac. On Eid Al Adha, Minnesota Muslims flock to the Mall of America by the tens of thousands. A FOX 9 (http://www.fox9.com/news/204893200-story) story posted just hours before the September 12th incident cites the tradition: in “A Pilgrimage to Mall of America on Eid Al Adha, (http://www.fox9.com/news/204893200-story)” KMSP reporter Maury Glover states that “anywhere from 25,000 to 40,000 Muslims (celebrate Eid Al Adha) at the MOA.”
