. . . five, six, seven, eight, we will not assimilate!
Two people were charged with felony assault and two police rangers were injured during a melee that broke out Tuesday 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.
The park was crowded with Muslims celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr, one of Islam’s two major holidays.
Police from at least nine agencies converged on the park after county police sought assistance in responding to the disturbance, which involved 30 to 40 people.

Parks officials “painstakingly” told the organizer about the headgear ban, said Tartaglia. But he said that the rules might not have been communicated by the organizer to some attendees.

As usual, when confronted with pesky infidel rules that conflict with Sharia law, Muslims get angry and indignant. And then they do what they do best, rampage and riot! Hey, at least no one was strapped with explosives, so it wasn’t as bad as it could have been.
/throughout world history, where Islam goes, trouble follows
