The announcement of a “Million Muslim March” on the national mall on the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks drew the high level of criticism that you would expect of such an event. In an attempt to draw less fire for the decision to hold it on 9/11 the event’s organizers have renamed the event and more clearly defined its purpose.

The American Muslim Political Action Committee, which is headquartered in Missouri, has rebranded the event as the “Million American March Against Fear”. The committee’s spokesman, Isa Hodge, has stated that the event will be meant to denounce government surveillance of citizens as well as to call for what they are calling the “truth” about the attacks.

Hodge also made sure to address the criticism of the event, which includes claims that it is supremely insensitive to those lost in the attacks: “They’re focusing on what it was [called] before February to continue the misinformation and fear that we’re trying to stop. It’s more sensational if they can put out there that it’s just Muslims going to dance on the graves of the 3,000 souls that were lost that day. That’s not what we’re doing.”

While the group aims to make a statement that will bring recognition to government surveillance policies, it is unlikely that they will do it with sheer numbers. While the event’s name may sound substantial, the National Park Service has said that the group applied for a permit for an event of merely 1,000 people.

While that number may work in a smaller setting, it is unlikely to draw much attention on a national scale, especially with the name change. It is likely that the event will go down in history for the controversy it stirred up, not the impact it made on society.

    Not so sure this a good idea. I also don’t think they will get 1,000,000 Muslims to participate. At the end of the day, we will see what happens.

      i have an idea, not just a million, but all muslims in the us, march to the shores of new york city and our government will pay the cruise lines to take all of you where you came from. good riddance. you have no respect for you are animals.

      • Ahmed Salim

        I suppose we should send all the African descendants of slaves back as well, or perhaps all the French, Oh and forget those dreadful British invaders too. And while your fellow tax paying citizens are flipping the bill for the transatlantic exodus of the entire American population, who coincidentally arrived here uninvited maybe you could up the education expenditure this coming fiscal year so that your children don’t end up as stupid and ignorant as you. If you tried to see this from the other sides perspective you might find that you have more in common than meets the eye, but far be it from me to think that a person with such narrowly guided views would be capable of elevating himself to think beyond the range of his own narrow views.

    I am so tired of all the people here.
    Look you all come here from other countries and want to change it to the country you come from.
    I have an idea why not go back to the country you come from so you remember why you came here.
    Every person from another country I have talked to has came here because they want to better themselves and for their families.
    Don’t like it here? LEAVE PLEASE!!

    • @Ken

      I don’t know if you noticed recently Ken…. but America is not the same as it was just 20 years ago. We are becoming less free everyday. One day, the whole notion of — if you don’t like it here just leave — is going to bite us all in the butt. That attitude allows the government to do whatever it wants.

      I love the US, but I am also a realist. We are in rapid decline and not acknowledging that and addressing that will be detrimental to our nation.

      • Ken Travis

        Look the govermeant is in complete disorder driving us into debt that we will never see the end of. We all know and wont do anything to change it. I will let you in on a secret or it seems to be, ok here we go. The Goverment wants us to hate by group so, it is the rich, whites, blacks, hispanic, asian and, all other relegions pitted to strike out at each other. If the people of this country stood hand in hand together and said ” We Will No Longer Stand By and Allow This To Happen ANYMORE!” when all is said and done we are all earthlings, humans, all people of this planet. Until all the people stand together it will not change!
        Now to what I said the people of this faith kill more than any in history even Hitler. Conform to our constition learn our language or go back from where you come……

    Notice how the headquarters is right smack dab in the middle of the country.
    I have spent years trying to be open-minded about this so-called religion which is really a murdering cult. I have no illusions now
    I hope they show up in DC. Then I hope the army shows up, too, with their weapons loaded.
    These people and their murdering fanatical ways need to be condemned and stopped. I have no problem with America being labeled ‘intolerant’. The days of political correctness are over.

    • larry luck

    • Reality

      In the end, God will not care what country you are from. God doesn’t side with any one country. I assure you of this. The devil has but one goal: the destruction of souls. He wants all of us to hate each other. He wants a lack of tolerance. He wants confrontation. He wants death.

      I love the US and I am a Christian. Peace. Mercy. Love. Compassion. Forgiveness. This is what Christ commands us to give. Keep sticking to Christ’s plan. He wasn’t naive or stupid. Trust in him. No matter what the future may hold. Trust in Christ. He is right about everything. Everything.

      • Foosefan

        Not sure..but your mythical god is the main reason millions of people have died..say like the crusades perhaps. Any and all religions no matter what ,by deffenition is a cul. Religion is the root of all thats wrong with the world!

        THE CHRISTIANS NEED TO START STANDING UP FOR THEMSELVES, I DON’T MEAN VIOLENCE SIGNING PETITIONS AND SUCH. EVIL IS EVIL.CHRISTIANS WON’T EVEN VOICE ANYTHING WHEN THEY R SLANDING CHRISTMAS.

  • Zeus

    This is awesome, all the terrorists gathering together in one place? Now we just need a crazy meth addict to strap a bomb to and send in the crowd haha

  • http://none michael a. smith

    I’ve seen on Facebook a call out to veterans and bikers to gather in D.C. that day as most of us feel the march they have planned on 9/11 is disrespectful to all that died that day ..The fact that it was carried out by muslims and these muslims would choose that day tp protest that they don’t feel liked in America is just so wrong ..
    They don’t like it here ,Then go back to the crap holes they came from..

  • Hmmm…..

    I wonder what would happen if all those conspiracy theorists turned out to be right. I still do not know how Building 7 fell and how the BBC reported that it fell 20 minutes before it happened — even when the broadcast had the anchor broadcasting right in front of the intact building. I also want to see photos of the plane that hit pentagon. The most secure building in the world that is covered in cameras and not one picture. It does not make sense. I find it ironic that the area of the pentagon that got hit held on all the accounting records and the day before the attack Rumsfeld held a press conference about the billions that the Pentagon “lost”. Since then we never heard another word about it. Then in Pennsylvania not one body was found in the plane crash. Not one. The commission report was started very late, wasn’t funded, and did not include people who literally heard bombs going off in the basement of the buildings. Indestructible black boxes were never found even though there was eye witness accounts that they were found. In the history of aviation, there has never been an incident of a black box not being found or destroyed.

    It doesn’t make sense and it has never made sense.

    Any religion that teaches its followers to kill anyone who does not believe as they is not a religion! It is a cult, and how many virgins are waiting in paradise for the Islamic jihadist? 7, 70? Those people are so out in left field they are truly screwed up. WE CANNOT TOLERANT THEM ANYMORE!!!!!! Look at Sweden and Denmark, they have closed their borders to Islamic people. Why? Because the Islamic people took over 1/3 of their country!!!!! Can America be so blind that our government office holders can’t see that? If they can’t we must vote them out!!!

    • James

      I have to respectfully disagree with many of the comments I see. In the course of my job and traveling I have found myself around people of all beliefs. Indeed, I have friends of every major religion, in addition to friends who claim none. Of Muslims, I have never found them to be any more prone to violence than a non-Muslim.

      There are parts of Muslim text which calls for violence just as there are parts of Christian text which also calls for violence. To people who point out those several violent commands of the Bible, we would counter their claim by telling them those parts are not to be taken literally, and by showing them the parts teaching of love and compassion. Nevertheless, some Christians gravitate to the former. How would the next Muslim you meet describe her beliefs? Do you believe the core values would be so different from yours? Would she extol violence?

      Nearly every Muslim desires to live in peace. Nearly every Christian desires to live in peace. To implicitly state that they are all taught to kill is akin to claiming all Christians are taught to be like Timothy McVeigh.

      There are always going to be people, of any faith / religion / group / organization / nationality / race who decide to use their beliefs to justify violence. But ask yourself: how many Muslims to you know personally? How many have tried to cause you harm in the name of their religion? How can you pre-judge billions of people by the actions of so few?

      1st the good news: they WILL have 27 virgins. now the bad news: they all look like Hillary Clinton and Rosie O’Donnell

  • Susan

    This is a disgusting show of disrespect to the many who dies on that day. They could pick another day to “Demonstrate against Fear”. but NO. They HAVE to pick one of the most sacred days in American history. This is a slap in the face to all who died on thatday at the hand of Muslim terrorists, even if not all Muslims are terrorists. They are not all terorists, but it is insensitive to do this on that day and they should know it. I hope any Muslim wiht common sense will avoid this march like the plague it is.

    We are bexcoiming just like all the third world nations you see on the news with all the people demonstrating and burning flags, and kiling others and fighting amongst ourselves.

    We are better as a nation than this. We HAVE to be better as a nation than this.

    Whoever you are planning this ridiculous march on a most sacred day: Please reconsider the day for your march. It is not acceptable to do it on that date. You should already know that and probably do and if you are doing this to create tension in the religions and the society of the USA, you are doing just that Maybe that is what you want.

    You want to cause trouble? This is how to do it. Maybe these are the terrorists at work here? Sounds plausoible to me that they would start something like this to stir up trouble and plot an attack within the assumption of “Demonstration Against Fear” and plant bombs and hurt policeman and firefighters called out to stop fires and fighting that will inevitably break out at a march like this one.

    Sounds suspiciosly like a way to start trouble….The authorities better wise up and check this out from top to bottom, inside out and stop this stupidity. This could be a way to start a terrorist attack right here on our soil. Who is the guy in charge of planning this? He seems like a radical Muslim to me if he would schedule this for that particular day in the first place. It needs to be stopped and not alowed to happen on that date before something else happens on that date. Just saying…that is what it souinds like to me.

    At the very minimum, it is an insesnitve, nasty thing to do, at the very worst, it could be a very dangerous thing to allow to happen.

    Does anyone else think that this is possible? Or am I being overly paranoid….of course just because I am paranoid, does not mean that they are not out to get me….so……just saying….

    Just Say No to MUSLIMS! “More Slums”

  • Mike

    I think it’s a great plan. They’ll all be in one place…any ideas? ;-)

  • Hmmm…..

    What is more plausible?

    A group of amateur terrorists armed with box cutters and with little training and no experience flying large aircraft were able to simultaneously steal 4 planes from the same airline at exactly the same time then fly them into major US sites while no fighters were sent to intercept them. Even though, in the past, we saw that when Payne Stewart (professional golfer), who was off course for just 15 minutes in a single engine plane, was intercepted by multiple jet fighters. The terrorists maneuvers against the pentagon were so difficult that current and retired military pilots have gone on record saying that after their hundreds of thousands of flight experience they could not have performed them. On top of that, the pentagon is one of the most secure military buildings in the world that literally has missile batteries on top of it and an entire air force base was built just 12 MILES away that’s SOLE PURPOSE is to provide protection for said building. Yet, there was not one plane in the air to protect it. Even though the hole that hit the building is not big enough to fit a plane, the engine found at the site was not from that type of plane, and even though there are hundreds of cameras surrounding the pentagon but not one picture of a plane hitting the building exists — people still think a plane hit it. Compounding these details is that the towers fell at free fall speed which is physically impossible due to the laws of physics and in under 2 hours some of the most well made buildings in the history of the world fell due to jet fuel even though that has never happened in the history of mankind. Then after a decade of hunting the man who orchestrated the whole crime and who has intimate knowledge of the whole terror network that did the crime — we kill him, don’t display the body, and dump him in the sea. Just because we want to be “sensitive” to muslim concerns because apparently 10 years of bombing muslim countries doesn’t really outrage the muslim community but displaying Bin Laden would.

    or

    The whole incident was orchestrated by a government that has the equipment, knowledge and experience to pull such a thing off as a pretext to going to war and to gain greater control over its people. A government that has done such things in the past.

    ———

    They say the bigger the lie …. the easier it is for people to believe. I am not saying I have any answers because I don’t. I just know what we are being told is not the truth. My God, the first scenario is just plain ludicrous. Maybe it did happen. But I doubt it.

    America was founded “UNDER GOD” and will continue to be such! If the immigrants who step onto our soil do so to change our ways and beliefs think it’s going to happen,they hadbetter get their heads on straight and go back to where they came from. If you come here looking for a better life, great, but do it according to the laws of this country and you had better believe in the constitution of this great country. The taxpaying citizens of this country are losing more and more everyday while these immigrants come here and have everything handed to them on platinum platters. They get free housing, medical and go to the best colleges that the majority of hardworking American taxpayers can’t afford to send their own kids to.
    Immigrants are free to take advantage of the W.I.D.E. program which covers all expenses of a full college tuition to the college of their choice and the majority of them go to ivy league schools. Ask your elected officials about this and you will not get an answer. I’ve tried to no avail.This costs the American taxpayer billions. How about the immigrants who have never worked here and are entitled to social security benefits while the elderly who worked and paid their taxes have their benefits cut? It’s time to clean house in D.C. and elect people who believe in what America stands for and who believe in the American people and who will not be there to fill their own back pockets. OH! I believe that the taxpayers will continue to pay for the best medical care for our elected officials as a part of their job, while these same taxpayers are being priced out of their own medical care. TAXPAYERS of America, it’s time to make a stand and defend ourselves and our GREAT COUNTRY!

    Do people even understand that a person who is Muslim is just practicing a Religion? Why don’t people understand that there ARE American Citizens who are Muslims???
