I will follow up on this post with more details, but since the American Muslim Political Action Committee is being very vocal on TV about their plans and their online presence is not in agreement with the things they are saying – I want to share some info.
As readers of this blog hear and see discrepancies, feel free to share in the comments section.
I’ve heard 2 of their spokesmen interviewed on Fox News so far and they both refuse to acknowledge that a march on September 11 is a horrible idea. I am all for Muslim Americans speaking against radical Islam — but to organize a march on DC on September 11 is a show of disregard for the families of the victims and every other American that lost a loved on that day or in the battles since that day. How can that fact escape them??
Another issue is the people who are involved and their beliefs. Let’s start with the top people in the AMPAC – I’ll also include the links to their main online sites. I don’t want to promote what they are doing. But I do want people to be able to see what these people are doing, the hate they are spreading and the blatant lies that are being told.

Blog Talk Radio – http://www.blogtalkradio.com/ampac
Their website refers to a Facebook page that doesn’t exist and the link took me to a woman’s profile page. However, there is an event which has 1 person attending as of 8-19-2013 at 9:49 pm EST.
Million Muslim March on their website, YouTube channel and BlogTalkRadio page – however, a spokesman for them insisted the name had been changed to Million American March Against Fear. Hmmm – maybe should tell their web person…. (UPDATE – The website was changed by 9:45 pm EST on 8-19-2013. I wish I’d taken a screen shot at 9 pm – but the current shot is posted above.)

From Website –
Hello I am the project manager for AMPAC’s Million Muslim March and campaign manager for MD Alam and his bid for the Senate 2016. I endeavor to help make America a better place for us and our children. I am a Muslim American and proud of it. But I am unhappy with its policies home and abroad. This is why I work hard to help change America back to its roots of following the Democratic principles of the Constitution and bill of rights. By working hard with Dawa ( sharing knowledge), lectures to help build bridges between faiths, and charity. Do to the Islamaphobia sweeping our nation it is imperative that I continue with the struggle to make change through the political process. Untill every American understands what our founding father Thomas Jefferson who once said ” It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg if my neighbor worships one God or twenty.”

Did You Hear the One About the Million Muslim March?
Get Your Jihad On…Join the March- 9/11/13
In what has got to be one of the biggest examples of chutzpah by any group at any time in American history, AMPAC- the American Muslim Political Action Committee- is organizing a Million Muslim march on Washington DC on September 11, 2013. The reason for this march is best explained by AMPAC executive director, Isa Hodge. Claiming that Muslims were equally traumatized by the events of 9/11/01, he goes on to state:
Yet our government 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 people has made it impossible for us to do true dawa.
Dawa, for those of you who are not aware, is the practice of Islamic proselytizing or preaching. Technically, it is an “invitation” to join the faith through understanding of Mohammed in the hope and belief that one will convert to Islam thus growing the “ummah,” or Muslim community.

New Book: Obama Voters Questioning the War on Terror
For Immediate Release – June 19th 2009
Fatna Bellouchi fatnabell(at)yahoo.com
According to a brand-new book, voters elected Barack Hussein Obama to the presidency for one overriding reason: They were skeptical about the Bush Administration’s War on Terror. After rigorously scrutinizing the so-called War on Terror, the book concludes that this concept is an empty propaganda ploy that must be exposed and rejected if Obama voters are to get the change they voted for.
Dr. Kevin Barrett, author of Questioning the War on Terror: A Primer for Obama Voters (publication date July 1st, 2009) writes:
“The election of Barack Hussein Obama tacked a giant flashing neon question mark onto the Bush Administration’s much-ballyhooed but never clearly defined ‘War on Terror.’ Surveys showed that McCain voters, like Bush voters before them, were heavily motivated by fear of terrorists. Obama voters, on the other hand, were more worried about the economy.
“By voting for a dark-skinned guy with a Muslim father, a middle name Hussein and a last name that sounds like Osama, Americans were saying they didn’t buy the Fox News propaganda demonizing Arabs, Muslims, and other vaguely dark-skinned people with funny names.
“By voting for the man they perceived as the anti-war candidate, Americans were re-stating the message they had sent in 2006: End the war NOW already! (What is it about the word NOW that the politicians don’t understand?)
“The rejection of the Republicans was also a rejection of torture. Obama campaigned for ending torture and closing Guantanamo, and the voters responded enthusiastically.
“Obama’s election showed the voters sensed a close connection between Bush’s hugely expensive, ruinous War on Terror and the economic difficulties America is facing. By running up a ten trillion dollar deficit and dragging America’s good name through the mud, Bush had wrecked the economy. Perhaps Obama, the peace candidate whose top priority was the economy, would be able to fix it.”
Dr. Barrett uses rigorous analysis and just plain common sense to show that Obama voters were right: the War on Terror is a profoundly dubious enterprise. He begins with the observation that Americans are thirty times more likely to die from lightning strikes, and ten times more likely to drown in their bathtubs, than to be killed by terrorists: “Should we declare war against lightning bolts and bathtubs? Should we install PA systems in our bathrooms reminding us that the threat level of bathtub drowning has been raised to orange? Should we create a new Department of Bathtub Security (DBS) empowered to do sneak-and-peak warrantless searches of our bathrooms to make sure that we’re using no-slip bath-mats? Should we invade and occupy countries that we falsely blame for bathtub deaths? Would this be any crazier than what we’re doing now, allegedly due to the equally insignificant ‘terrorist threat’?”
Using the Socratic method, Questioning the War on Terror asks fifty-four hard questions that, taken together, effectively annihilate the central notion on which our post-9/11 political life has been based. It concludes with a list of twenty-two concrete actions that readers can take to end the War on Terror and achieve the change they voted for.
