AMAC calls on responsible Muslim leaders to condemn the Million Muslim March planned for the anniversary of 9/11
It's an 'ugly act of provocation' conceived by a discredited anti-Semite, says AMAC president Dan Weber
BOHEMIA, New York – The Association of Mature American Citizens has called for responsible Muslim leaders to condemn the Million Muslim March scheduled for this year's 9/11 anniversary. Dan Weber, AMAC president, called the march "an ugly act of provocation."
Weber issued a statement today protesting what he called "the ill-conceived demonstration." Weber noted that the demonstration is being organized by a discredited anti-Semite, M.D. Rabbi Alam. Alam who heads AMPAC, the American Muslim Political Action Committee, says he believes that the murder of more than 3,000 people on September 11, 2001 was the result of a Jewish conspiracy.
"It is an absurd notion at best and a blatant insult not only to the American Jewish Community, but to all Americans of good faith," he said. Meanwhile, he added, "such a march, on that date, would be an ugly act of provocation, disrespectful to those 3,000 plus American citizens who were killed during the attack.
The AMAC statement calls on "our fellow-Americans who are responsible leaders in Muslim communities throughout the country to demonstrate their own commitment to America's civil traditions by condemning this ugly act of provocation and by publicly censuring those behind it.
"While the organizers claim to be protesting discrimination against Muslims, they know full well that their march will be construed as a "Victory March" by extremists throughout the world who dislike the USA."
