A New York State Senator stormed off the stage of a Muslim Day speech by a jihadist who said, “We have the unborn martyrs in our wombs.”

Under this year’s theme that “Islam advocates peace and justice for all, an Imam from Brooklyn told last week’s parade, where State Sen. Tony Avello was a marshal and sat on stage, that the United Nations should pass a law that would criminalize blasphemy.”

His speech was only a warm-up for that made by an Arab woman jihadist with a British accent and poetic speech who declared, "We have the unborn martyrs in our wombs and drop bombs in here because all that we blow up is mines in minefields. They [Palestinians] resonate in refugee camps and are hosted by Zionist Nazis.”

That was too much for State Senator Avella, who rushed off the stage.

The UnitedWest.org organization caught up with the senator and asked him why he stormed off stage. “I was offended,” he said.

But when asked why, Avella ducked the question, responding, “I am not going to get into it.”

The annual Muslim Day Parade advertises itself as “an annual event that unites Muslim-Americans in New York.”
