NYC Muslim Day Parade To Be Held On 9/09/07

Apparently, for almost 20 years, it was held on the last weekend of the month, but for some unknown reason, it was moved up to the ninth, this year…..that’s right, a Muslim parade, on 9/09, that close to ground zero….a pre-celebration of sorts.

The parade is run by the Muslim Foundation of America, which was founded in 1983, mainly for the purpose of organizing the parade.

Many of the speakers, and sponsors past and present are Islamic Militants.

Joe Kaufman from FrontPageMagazine has been at the forefront of exposing this travesty for what it is:

The Grand Marshal for the 2006 parade was Siraj Wahhaj, a Brooklyn imam who is known for his fiery speeches, including those that have been considered threatening to the United States. In February of 1995, Wahhaj was named – along with such people as Osama bin Laden and bin Laden’s mentor, Abdullah Azzam – as a potential co-conspirator to the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.

Another Grand Marshal of a past parade was Muzzamil Siddiqi, the former President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a mosque umbrella organization that was recently named a co-conspirator to the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas. Siddiqi, like Wahhaj, has also verbally threatened the United States, stating in October of 2000, “America has to learn. If you remain on the side of injustice, the wrath of G-d will come.” There are pictures of Siddiqi speaking at the parade, on the MFA site.

This year’s Grand Marshal is no other than Keith Ellison, D, MN.

On the MFA website, in addition to the parade photo gallery, there is also a section titled, “USEFUL LINKS.” Four out of the five links listed (complete with their logos) are national organizations which have been found to be part of the violent Muslim Brotherhood overseas. They include the aforementioned ICNA and ISNA, as well as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim Students Association (MSA). CAIR was created by the American propaganda wing of Hamas, the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), in 1994, and the MSA was the first organization created by the Brotherhood within the United States, in 1963.

The Website is now down, either that, or I don’t have the right software to access it, or I would have provided a link.

Little green Footballs has an excellent video of Steve Emerson Debating the Co-Chairman of the parade, Imam Shamsi Ali, who very unconvincingly acts totally ignorant of the associations the parade has with militants. Watch Colmes, as he obligingly reads a press release from the MFA; a long list of New York Departments cooperating with the parade. I loved Emerson’s reaction to this, and his reaction to Colmes, as he simpered that this was merely an example of “Guilt by association”.

If you’re concerned that this parade is taking place so close to ground zero, on 9/09, you can contact Mayor Bloomberg.

…Or you can do as Jillosophy suggests, and show up with an “I will not submit” teeshirt.

Or you can rant about it on my blog.

…and why do you suppose they moved the parade to before 9/11???


Jillosophy plans to be there with a counter protest. Can’t wait to hear how it goes.

  1. I know it is un-Christian of me to even think this but I don’t think I would shed a tear for them if some catastrophe befell them during this “commemoration” and hundreds or thousands of them were to die. What’s the word I’m looking for if I am really honest — schadenfreude. Such an action would be just more proof that there is a just God.


  2. I would feel better if they moved the gathering to the top floor of the Empire State Building on 9/11 but that’s just me.

    Also, I hate to be crude Nice Deb but apparently you’ve been hit 33,342 times.

  4. ‘M00SLIM-AMERICAN’ ??? How is that even possible when they hate us so much? What an insult to hold their anti-US rally so close to 9/11, which I would guess most are happy about. If I hated the place I lived in that much, I’d move. They have no place in this country.


  5. Islamists Attempt to Quash Free Speech that Unmasks their Radical Agenda

    On October 14, 2007 Joe Kaufman, a chairman of American Against Hate, organized a protest against the Islamic Circle of North America. ICNA has well documented ties to Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood and should really be called the ISLAMIST Circle of North America, especially, since it openly advocates for establishment of Sharia in the United States.

    During the protest, Mr. Kaufman was served with temporary restraining order filed by Islamic Society of Arlington, Al Hedayah Islamic Center, Dar Elsalam Islamic Center, DFW Islamic Educational Center, Inc., Islamic Association of Tarrant County, Islamic Center of Irving, and Muslim American Society of Dallas.

    The TRO restraints Joe Kaufman from the following:

    – Threatening Plaintiffs in person, by telephone, or in writing to take unlawful action against any person, intending by this action to annoy or alarm Plaintiffs.
    – Intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causing bodily injury to Plaintiffs or Plaintiffs’ associates or members.
    – Threatening Plaintiffs or Plaintiffs’ associates or members with imminent bodily injury.
    – Inciting violence against Plaintiffs, their members or associates.

    The Plaintiffs claim that Mr. Kaufman “operates a website … that tries to foment hate and anger against law abiding United States citizens who practice their religion (Islam) freely as guaranteed by the United States Constitution. … He wishes to stir up anger, resentment, bias, and hatred of peaceful, law abiding citizens, solely because of their religion. To this end, Defendant Kaufman organizes protests of all things Islamic, attempting to paint them in one broad swath as being allied with Hamas, Al Qaeda, and terrorists. … To this end, Defendant has painted the Plaintiffs as terrorists.”

    Several members of Muslims Against Sharia went through multiple statements posted on Mr. Kaufman’s website, We have not found a single instance of Islam-bashing or Muslim-bashing that the Plaintiffs are complaining about. However, we found plenty of information that link ICNA and Muslim American Society (MAS) to Islamist groups both at home and abroad.

    This is a despicable act of American Islamist establishment (which IS associated with terrorists) to quash any attempt to unmask its extremist agenda.

    Muslims Against Sharia call on every American Muslim to condemn Islamism in general and Plaintiffs in particular and voice their support for Mr. Kaufman.
