Most of us remember 911 as a tragic and devastating day in American history. A day in which approximately 3000 people were struck down in the name of Islam. Searching the Internet this morning I have obtained new information about a 911 memorial. But there is major problem with this 911 memorial. It is a dedicated to the victims of the US War on Terror and NOT those who were murdered by the Islamic terrorist attacks on 911! To make matters worse the people running this show have obtained a city permit, and will be holding a rally at City Hall on 911! (Besides being a virtual memorial)
City Hall Park, Rally & March against Anti-Muslim Bigotry
Extreme right-wing, racist forces, who last year whipped up a climate of hate against the Islamic Prayer Center at 51 Park Place, have announced ugly new plans for this year — the 10th anniversary of 9/11 — at the same location near the World Trade Center site.
What race is Islam?
(From last year’s Geller/Spencer 911 rally)
This is a very dangerous threat. Anders Breivik, the racist, rightwing Norwegian responsible for the recent mass murder of 77 mostly young people in Norway, has quoted extensively from the writings of Pamela Geller of Stop Islamization of America and Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch. These are the two organizations opposing the Islamic Prayer Space at 51 Park Place.
Once again, what race is Islam? I strongly condemn what Breivik did, but he is a grown man who is responsible for his own actions. NOT Geller or Spencer!
Last year the media claimed that these well-financed hate groups represented the views of a great majority of the population. Many of us considered it a responsibility to show that they do not speak for the people of New York City. We organized, with the help of many thousands who responded, a far larger and dignified outpouring to stand for unity, respect and solidarity and against racism, war and anti-Muslim bigotry.
For the third time, what race is Islam? STRIKE THREE!
If the people who supported that rally were really against war, why are they supporting a religion/ideology that calls for perpetual war?
Bukhari Hadith Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.” Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, “O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?” He replied, “Whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have.”
A person is not a bigot for refusing to be dominated by Islam. But Islam certainly is a bigoted ideology.
Koran verse 005.051
YUSUFALI: O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.
This year it is more important than ever that we do not allow these racist hate mongers to be the only voices speaking to the media and to the world. It is especially important to counter, in this period of economic crisis, the forces that want to blame immigrants and Muslims for the growing cutbacks in social services, rising unemployment and continuing wars. We will hold a rally, a march and a cultural exhibition.
Keep playing the race card. All you are doing is devaluing its meaning. Brilliant…
I have not seen one person blame Muslims for rising unemployment. I guess in their desire to submit to Islam they will say anything.
Part of the “cultural exhibition” will be the Gitmo Dance.

The Gitmo Guys were used at a April 9Th rally in NYC.
As you can see, the supporters of Islam are organized, and they need to be countered. I encourage all readers to come out and support America, Geller, and Spencer on 911! Thank you!
