Excerpted from The Clarion Project – Don’t believe the claims of the organizers who say that the march is being held to battle fear and discrimination. They are wordsmiths.
In multiple media appearances, the organizers of the Million American March Against Fear (formerly the Million Muslim March), which will be held on September 11, claim that the march is being held to battle fear, discrimination and human rights violations. They are being wordsmiths. This is an Islamist-linked, conspiracy-promoting political rally that uses 9/11 to push an anti-Western narrative.
The march is being organized by American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC), an organization linked to Islamist radicals and 9/11 “Truthers.” The head organizers have personal histories of promoting an Islamist agenda for America, anti-Semitism and 9/11 conspiracy theories. In fact, according to one of the organizers, the name of the march was changed to accommodate non-Muslim 9/11 conspiracy theory groups.
On its website, AMPAC says:
“’Al-Qaeda’ is a joke. And so is the whole ‘war on terror.’”
?“Whether or not Al-Qaeda is completely mythical, the so-called ‘Islamic terrorist threat’ is pure hallucination.”
“Muslims, too, live in fear—of being dragged off into the night to Guantanamo and tortured, simply for the crime of being Muslim in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
A number of Muslim organizations have signed on for the Million American March Against Fear on 9/11. These include:
Los Angeles chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity
Muslim American Society, a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity
American Muslim Alliance
American Muslim Task Force
Muslims for Liberty
Muslim March Against Terrorism
Mosque Care (North Carolina)
Muslim American PAC (NJ)
North American Bangladeshi Association for Bangladesh
South Asian Chamber of Commerce
The rally’s website also claims support from a number of non-Muslim political groups including Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth Movement, DC Area 9/11 Truth Movement, March Against Drones and the Occupy Wall Street Movement.
AMPAC, the organization behind the march, is headed by MD Rabbi Alam, a controversial figure who is a documented 9/11 “Truther.” Last July, the Clarion Project discovered that Alam is personally associated with the pro-Hamas Islamist group Viva Palestina (VP) and that a number of Alam’s officials have served in official capacities for VP.
The Investigative Project on Terrorism says “[T]he Viva Palestina campaign is more about supporting and legitimizing Hamas than it is about providing aid to the needy …They treat Hamas leaders as the legitimate representatives of the Palestinian people and provide both material and political support to the terrorist organization.”
Viva Palestina is led by anti-American British politician George Galloway. VP was investigated by the British government in 2009 and is currently under investigation again. Canada has banned Galloway from entering the country because of his support for the Hamas terrorist group, which includes publicly handing a bag of cash to a Hamas minister.
Alam attended a fundraiser headlined by George Galloway on July 2, 2009 that brought in $103,000 for “medical relief for Palestinians in Gaza.” There is a photo of him sitting in the front row. The Gaza Strip is controlled by Hamas, a terrorist organization (as designated by the U.S. government) and the Palestinian wing of the Brotherhood. Other participants in the fundraiser included two Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups, Muslim American Society and American Muslims for Palestine. (See below for more documentation linking Alam to Viva Palestina.)
Alam is a documented 9/11 “Truther,” who claimed that no Jews were killed on 9/11 until he was confronted with the facts (he then apologized). In a video of a speech he prepared for an American Muslims for Palestine event, now blocked from the public, Alam says, “[T]his country, it is true, that when you are not involved in the mainstream, you are nothing but treated yourself as a stranger. It is as simple as it is.”
Alam also heads two other organizations that are also involved in organizing the march, the Missouri Democratic Party Asian American Caucus (MDPAAC) and the National Democratic Party Asian American Caucus.
March Speaker Imam Mahdi Bray: The U.S. Is Waging a War on Islam
One of the listed speakers is Imam Mahdi Bray, identified as an official of the Muslim American Society. In 2008, federal prosecutors said MAS was “founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.” Secret U.S. Muslim Brotherhood member and convicted terrorist Abdurrahman Alamoudi said in 2012 that “everyone knows that MAS is the Muslim Brotherhood.” In 2000, Bray was on stage with Abdurrahman Alamoudi when he praised Hamas and Hezbollah
Bray gave an approving gesture and the audience cheered when the statement was made. Bray later condemned the Israeli assassination of Hamas’ spiritual leader as “state-sponsored terrorism.” He has also accused the U.S. of waging a “war on Islam.” In February 2008, Bray traveled to Egypt to stand in solidarity with Brotherhood members being prosecuted by the ruling government.
