Million Muslim March on 9/11 Linked to Islamist Radicals

Rabbi Alam and Mahdi BrayBy Ryan Mauro:

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.”
