Thousands of Muslims were at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on Tuesday, to celebrate the Muslim holiday of Eid. This celebration usually requires the slaughter of live animals, but no animals were killed.
According to reporters from the scene, chants of “Allahu Akbar” could be heard from the loudspeakers. The event which was advertised as a “Super Eid,” drew some 30,000 Muslims to the stadium where the Minnesota Vikings play, the Star-Tribune reported.

As Islamic leaders with ties to terrorism addressed them, thousands of Muslims chanted the jihadist battle cry “Allahu Akbar” at taxpayer-funded U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis yesterday as part of a huge celebration of the Muslim festival of animal sacrifice known as Eid al-Adha.
One media estimate put the size of the crowd at 30,000.
“Allahu Akbar” is not an innocuous phrase. It is generally the last thing victims of Muslim terrorism around the world hear as their lives are cut short at the hands of groups like Islamic State or al-Qaeda. The phrase means “God is greater,” but there is more to it. It is a cheer that goes back to the still-celebrated Muslim slaughter of Jews at Khaybar in 628. It means the Muslim deity, Allah, is greater than the religions of those vanquished by Islam. It is an active, actionable threat to all non-Muslims, a belligerent statement of Islamic supremacy. […]
The organization putting on the event, Super Eid, previously said it hoped to attract 50,000 people to the morning event and to a celebration afterwards at a nearby park.
It’s not clear who funded Super Eid but it seems unlikely such a large gathering could have been arranged without major corporate sponsorship. More
“Allahu Akbar” is the war whoop of Islamic terrorists.
Where are the hypocrites from @peta ?
