It’ll be just as crazy as you’re thinking
(The Blaze) A radical Muslim political advocacy group has sparked controversy with its plans to hold a “Million Muslim March” on Washington, D.C., on the 12th anniversary of the 9/11. The gathering is intended to condemn the discrimination of Muslims following 9/11 and urge the U.S. government to reveal the “truth” about the attack.
The move has been blasted as “tasteless” given the significance of the date commemorating the worst domestic terror attack in American history.
The group behind the event, the American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC), is led by M.D. Rabbi Alam, a self-proclaimed 9/11 truther who believes that Jews are somehow behind the plot. AMPAC is radical enough that the Huffington Post even labeled it a “fringe group.”
Alam, who has reportedly associated with a radical Islamic cleric, is also a Missouri-based Democratic activist who chairs the National Democratic Party Asian American Caucus, the Washington Free Beacon reports. He ran — unsuccessfully — for Missouri’s secretary of state in 2012.
Whether a thousand, much less a million, show up is questionable. Even CAIR knows that this is a Bad Idea. From the AMPAC website
We are demanding that laws be enacted protecting our 1st amendment . We are asking President Obama to fulfill his promise from his first campaign for Presidency of a transparent government. Lastly we are asking for the release of the 9/11 commission report to the American people.
Oh, good, pushing 9/11 Truth.
These lies told to the American population has made it impossible for us to do true Dawa. Why do we have to defend our religion while doing Dawa? Why can’t we just share the perfection of the Quran and the beauty of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SWS)?
As Maggie’s Notebook (which I linked the other day on this story) notes
The short story? This is about Islamic Law, Sharia’h Law in America in the future. For every American Muslim who despises Sharia’h Law or who wants to be exempt from it here, there are many more who believe Islam will and should dominate the world. Every step Muslim leaders take forward is a step toward Muslim dominance.
One has to wonder how much influence the Muslim Brotherhood, which Obama seems to be very cozy with, will have on this march. provided it happens, of course.
