  1. Wow, so many of them. Was this a special occasion that they all gathered together? Don’t they have different Mosques? Lehavdel, we have different nuschayos – Ashkenaz, sefard, minhag sefard, Chassidish, etc… I thought they have something similar.

  2. I’m sure they had permits.
    The same permits issued to all the rebbishe chuppahs that take over street or all the lag baomer hadlookahs.
    Lets not forget that we are NOT yet in our own country.

  3. So having Hachnosas Sefer Torah blocking main streets is ok, but Muslims cant do this once a year? Why do Yidden think what they do to inconvenience the Non Jews is ok but when another faith inconveniences teh Jews thats a problem?

  4. The street shown is * not * Coney Island Avenue in Brooklyn, which is a heavily traveled, busy street.

    Rather it is a relatively lightly traveled stretch of McDonald Avenue there, between Church Avenue and Avenue C.

    The street is not a typical through street, as it curves and splits at its eastern end. The dominant group there are Muslims from Bangladesh.

    The video evidently was taken this Sunday, presumably Sunday morning, two days ago, when they were marking the end of Ramadan.

    Whoever wants to view the street, to understand better, can go to 474 McDonald Avenue with Google Maps, and take a look at street view images.

    The question is if it was done by permit. If the proper procedures were followed, the law was observed. If not, that would be an issue.

    With a lightly traveled street on a Sunday morning, disruption is not so great.

  5. makes sense all the Jews from Brooklyn abandoned it for the so called ir hakodesh Lakewood so these patriotic Americans took over.

  6. To all the self hating muzzie apologists: every day, the muzzie worshipers double park their cars by their mosque on Coney Island avenue without getting a single parking ticket from the cooperating NYPD, while the Synagogue worshipers not only don’t get such a break, but are often targeted for a ticket blitz.

    • I would venture to say that jewish cars violate traffic and parking laws more than their Muslim friends. Just saying.

      • “jewish cars violate traffic and parking laws more than their Muslim friends” Do you have actual police statistics or are you just trying to be a self-hating muzzie-apologist? Did you ever see Coney Island and Foster avenues mosque’s double parked cars with tacit approval of the NYPD?!

  7. What’s the point of the article? In a few years the Chinese will move past Ft hamilon Pky. (In the mid 50’s they’re up to 13th avenue) And the muslims will move past Ave c / Cortelyou Rd. and McDonald ave and the yidden will hopefully be in Eretz Yirael.

  8. Why do they pray in the street? Do they not have a mosque that is big enough? Do their women pray also? It is somewhat impressive (as long as they are peaceful and not terrorists).

  9. What is your problem? This is America and all religious groups can do this (with proper permits of course). We probably do it more often.

  10. To FYI
    I’M 100% sure that it was a Shul though I can’t remember the name. Maybe someone else who grew up in that neighborhood 45-50 years ago as I did can comment on this.

  12. Here’s my perspective. All groups have a legal right to occasionally have a public prayer gathering in the street. The concern is that some groups have shown a desire to take over whatever country they settle in and enforce their culture and laws on people from other denominations. Just as a side note, anybody remember a milchigeh resteurant on Coney Island Ave. /Ave H called Weiss? It was around a little over ten years ago. It was a nice heimishe place with a little ambience. I used to go there quite often. Then, one evening, i decided to have a night out with my dad. To my horror, i see no mezuza and signs in a foreign language.
