Historically, this is the day Sunnis attack Shias as apostates (Karbala 2004, Bridge of the Imams 2005). Ashura marchers bloody and beat themselves to show piety.
We infidels have been pretty safe on that day so far.
Wednesday is also the Coptic and Orthodox Christian Christmas.
There will be a Shia march on Park Avenue or Madison Avenue like last year.
Lots of NYPD security, though. NYPD has received lots of intel about a possible attack.
This would be an ideal opportunity for AQ to hit both the Shias and America with suicide/car bombers.
Good idea to warn readers tonight to avoid NYC Wednesday.
