Summary of the eRumor:
This is a forwarded email with attached photos that says the pictures are that of Muslims in prayer on the streets of New York City. It also says that every Friday afternoon traffic is stopped so Muslims can gather at the corner of 42nd and Madison to pray.

The Truth:
The photos were taken in New York City but this is not a weekly event. Once a year the Muslim Foundation of America organizes a Muslim Day Parade event that includes a gathering of Muslims at the corner of Madison Ave and 41st Street for Zahur prayer.

Don’t really care. I don’t see other religions stopping traffic with a call to prayer and, no, I don’t count the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as an equal.

Could Christians do this is the question here. Another double standard no matter which angle you attempt to put a spin on it
