Smoking Is "Legal Again" -- Only If You're Muslim

The camel's nose in under the tent in the Astoria section of NYC where patrons cluster around tables and puff on fruit-flavored tobacco through pipes called hookahs. "The hookahs allow us to come together and unwind," Beirut-born Mahamoud Abraham, co-owner of the cafe said. "It's an important part of our culture."

Gee. Non-Muslims in America for centuries make tobacco smoking "an important part" of their culture and are forbidden to do so in public, and in some cases at home where young children are present. It's the law. Do Muslims think that Muslim culture trumps the law of the land?

Trampling the laws of host countries is standard operating procedure for Muslims insinuating themselves into other cultures. New Yorkers, and others, should be on the lookout for other examples.
