The Muslim community in America routinely schedules “Muslim Family Days” at Six Flags amusement parks across the country. Organizers apparently recognize the public relations disaster it would be to schedule one of these “festive” occasions directly on the anniversary of 9/11, so it looks like they try to get as close as possible to provide some thin veneer of plausible deniability.
Last year, for instance, in Chicago, the “Muslim Family Day” took place on September 12, which of course is as close as you can get.
This year, according to the the website of the Islamic Circle of North America, in New Jersey, “Muslim Family Day” will be held on September 16, while in Albany, NY, the event will be held the following day, September 17. In Washington, D.C., the festivities will take place on September 18, exactly one week after the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
In Los Angeles, the event was held on September 3, the same day chosen for the event in Boston, Buffalo and San Francisco. In San Antonio, TX, the celebration was held on September 4, exactly one week before the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
So, in other words, the great majority of these events were scheduled either one week before or one week after 9/11. The Muslim community has the sense to realize that doing it on the very day Muslims flew planes into the Twin Towers would be a coincidence too far for most Americans, so they’re getting as close as they can. Close counts, apparently, not only in grenades and horseshoes but in 9/11 celebrations.
The San Antonio event included Muslim prayers, and one can only wonder how many times “Allahu Akhbar” was intoned by imams and ordinary Muslims there and during the other festivals, and how many Muslims at these events have used or will use the occasion to celebrate in one way or another the glorious triumph of the Prophet and his demon god on 9/11 over the infidel West.
ICNA is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood and therefore, according to a Muslim Brotherhood memo, is dedicated to “eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
The best that the “Muslim Family Day” website hosted by ICNA can do, when referring to the Muslim attacks on New York, the Pentagon, and the attempted attack on Washington, D.C. is to refer to them as “[t]he tragic events of 9/11 that resulted in the loss of thousands of innocent lives.”
You will notice nary a mention of any role that Islam or Muslims played in the death of 3000 innocent Americans, and no repudiation of jihad. According to ICNA, 9/11 was nothing more than a series of “tragic events,” like 9/11 was something that just happened and for which no one is to blame, as if it were a hurricane or a tornado.
Lest you think ICNA is benign, it also sponsors the “Islamic Learning Foundation,” an “educational institute” whose objective is to brainwash “Muslim Youth in particular by enlightening their minds and affecting their hearts with sound knowledge of Islamic Shariah.”
Remember that it is Shariah law that calls for the death of anyone who leaves Islam, which tells infidel Christians that their three choices are to convert, submit, or die, which calls for jihad to advance Islam, and which calls for husbands to beat their wives into submission.
In fact, for two decades ICNA has been seeking, in my judgment, to radicalize young American Muslims. It’s “Young Muslims” division provides an “Islamic atmosphere” where young Muslims can “form bonds of brotherhood” with other young Muslims, and be indoctrinated into “knowing, understanding, and fulfilling the individual and collective obligations of being a Muslim.”
According to Muhammad himself, one of these “collective obligations” is carrying out jihad in the name of Allah. The 9/11 hijackers were just fulfilling one of their “collective obligations” along with the 18 other young Muslims with whom they had “form[ed] bonds of brotherhood.”
I see no reason for concern about these “Muslim Family Days.” How about you?
