A Muslim group planning a “million Muslim march” to be held on the 12th anniversary of the terror attacks that brought down the World Trade Center in 2001 is being criticized for picking that day for their event.
On August 11, I reported on the march being planned by the Muslim advocacy group named the American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC) and ourselves noted that it is little else but a finger in American’s eyes. Now others are echoing that sentiment.
Recently on Fox News, Doctor Zudhi Jasser, president of the Islamic Forum for Democracy, criticized the picking of the very day that Muslims killed over three thousand Americans.
“They’re basically a bunch of ‘truthers’ who think that America’s to blame for everything,” Jasser said. He went on to say that the Anti-Defamation League has identified some of the leaders of the march as “being virulent, anti-Semites who think 9/11 was a conspiracy theory.”
“These guys are problematic and they’re trying to exploit 9/11. If they were truly patriotic Americans and moderates, they’d be marching on the courthouse steps of the Fort Hood trial that’s happening this week to tell Americans that we want the death penalty for Nidal Hissan rather than this circus that they’re doing in exploiting the murders and horrific acts of 9/11.”
“America has gone on to liberate Muslims. They gave our families freedom that we could not have in any so-called Muslim countries.”
Obviously the people planning this “march” are cranks and dangerous terror supporters.
As we noted on August 10, to say the rights of Muslims in America haven’t been protected is, of course, an absurd claim. Muslims in the USA are not being systematically denied their “civil rights.” Any claims that Muslims are being oppressed in the U.S. is a laughable fiction.
FBI hate crime stats reveal that very few Muslims have been hit with crime or abuse in this country in the years after 9/11/01. As a point of truth, it is Jews that still face a much, much higher rate of racist/anti-religious crimes.
