The Million Muslim March Against Truth

The American Political Action Committee is planning to hold a Million Muslim March in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 11, 2013.  The purpose is to demand “social justice” of the U.S. Government.  The Million Muslim March is planned for September 11, but the event has since been renamed.  The Million Muslim March’s organizer indicates that the event will now be called the “Million American March Against Fear,” and Isa Hodge says that the continued use of the original name is an attempt to rally people to oppose the demonstration.

Hodge claims, “They’re focusing on what it was [called] before February to continue the misinformation and fear that we’re trying to stop… It’s more sensational if they can put out there that it’s just Muslims going to dance on the graves of the 3,000 souls that were lost that day. That’s not what we’re doing.”

According to Hodge, the march isn’t about Islam in America — it’s more of a focus on civil liberties:

“I expect the numbers to be astronomical… I expect many anti-protesters, but they’re going to be pleasantly surprised, I think. We’re not going to be up there whining about civil rights violations of Muslims. There’s going to be a presentation on rights and events that affect the liberties of all Americans.”

If the intent in using the “Million Muslim March” name is to create party divides, it’s not completely working. Pennsylvania’s Williamsport Tea Party is involved with the march, and Nick Defonte of the group says any American who is pro-Constitution is on the right side in his book, according to the Inquistr.

AMPAC, is 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,” the event posting states on their website.

Hodge, AMPAC’s Chief of Operations, writes that Muslims and non-Muslims alike were traumatized by the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, “but we as Muslims continue 12 years later to be victimized by being made the villains.

“Yet our Government either sits idly by and does nothing to protect our freedoms or it exacerbates the problem with its constant war on terrorism in Islamic countries, Congressional hearings on Islam in America, and its changes to the NDAA law.”

“These lies told to the American population has made it impossible for us to do true Dawa,” Ms. Hodge continues, referring to the practice of proselytizing or preaching Islam.

“It is time for us as Muslims in America to stop being defensive and start being proactive by using our right to vote and our freedom of assemble and let our voices be heard by our country and the world.  Stand with us; help us fight the injustices being committed against us.”

Mr. DeFonte may feel he’s being a good  American by defending American Muslims’ Constitutional, First Amendment right to practice their religion.  The trouble is, history isn’t exactly on their side.  Their judgment in choosing 9/11, the 12th Anniversary of the attacks of 2001 was poorly considered.  If this group is proselytizing in the name of Islam, their salesmanship leaves something to be desired.

Then, there is the violence in Egypt working against them.  The country is in turmoil because the secularist military/police state is battling the Muslim Brotherhood, who are rioting because the Muslim Brotherhood’s “democratically-elected” president was overthrown July 3 in a military coup.  The military declared that Egypt was a secular country and that they were honor-bound to protect the non-Muslim residents of the nation, particularly the Coptic Christians.  Hundreds of Christian churches have been destroyed and hundreds of Christians murdered or driven out of their country.

National Review Online’s Rich Lowry writes:

“For the first time in 1,600 years, they didn’t pray this past Sunday at the Virgin Mary and Anba Abraam monastery in a village in southern Egypt.

“Islamists firebombed and looted the monastery, which dates back to the fifth century. For good measure, they destroyed a church inside. They then announced that they would be converting the monastery into a mosque.

“Egypt is in the midst of an anti-Christian pogrom. Supporters of ousted Muslim Brotherhood president Mohamed Morsi are lashing out at the country’s Copts for the offense of being Christian in Egypt.  The militants have the same nihilistic spirit as the Taliban destroyers of the ancient Buddha statues in Afghanistan in 2001, the same poisonous arguments as anti-Semitic propagandists in every time and every place, and the same sectarian intent as Slobodan Milosevic on the cusp of his ethnic-cleansing campaigns of the 1990s.”

With the 12th Anniversary of the September 11th attacks coming up next month, Americans need to ask themselves just what it means to practice Islam?  Prosletyzers of that faith certainly want to persuade us that Islam is a religion of peace and not believe the “lies” – unspecified – that we’re being told.

Aren’t hundreds of Christian churches in Egypt being burned down, their worshippers murdered?  Hasn’t Al-Qaeda threatened to target Jewish and Israeli interests and synagogues around the world?  Did the Taliban not blow up the Buddhist statues?  Have Muslims not committed honor killings right here in the United States?  Is Maj. Hassan not on trial in Texas for murdering 13 “infidels” at Fort Hood?  Do they really expect us to believe the nonsense that the Twin Towers were imploded from within (the ‘explosions’ witnesses claimed to hear was the air pressure exploding outward as the building ground its way down)?   Do the Muslim Brotherhood, the Taliban, and Al Qaeda really believe it’s their mission to cleanse the Middle East of Jews and other infidels?  If so – and the prosletyzers say it is so, that it is America’s fault for “interfering” in Middle Eastern affairs – then why should we expect anything different from them?  Isn’t all they’re really telling us is that if we would just allow them to convert us peacefully, that they wouldn’t “have” to kill us? 

The First Amendment guarantees Muslims the right to practice their religion here in America.  It doesn’t guarantee them the right to force non-Muslims to do so.
