Free Muslims Against Terrorism march draws nigh ! FMAT tells world "God loves Christians & Jews as much as he loves Muslims"

FMAT claims 70 'endorsements'- Fairfax Republicans deny they gave permission to use their name on list
May 9, 2005

MIM: A previous article by the writer of this piece asked the rhetorical question : "Free Muslims against terrorism" - An exercise in Muslim sophistry?" and pointed out that for FMAT, the root cause of terrorism is Israel, and if Israel ceased to exist, there would be no cause for Islamist terrorism. http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/531

As the FMAT March Against Terrorism draws near, one is inclined to speculate as to who will make make up the bulk of the marchers. Given the fact that 20 out of the 70 'endorsers' are non Muslims, a good bet would be 95% percent non Muslim, with the rest made up of FMAT members and whoever they can round up from central casting. The 'endorsers' listed on the FMAT site are a diverse bunch, ranging from 'The Government of Free Vietnam - to the Zanzibari - American Association.

It is also debateable as to how many of the endorsers will make their presence known, since it might transpire, as in the case of the Fairfax Republicans, that they did not give permission to list their organisations as 'endorsers' in the first place,( or that their sites simply don't exist). Republican FMAT leader Kamal Nawash is good friends with Karl Rove sychophant, (and newly wed convert to Islam), Grover Norquist. In 2003 Norquist held a fundraiser for Nawash who was running for a seat in the Virginia State Senate. The close relationship between Free Muslims Against Terrorism founder Kamal Nawash and Norquist was detailed by Paul Sperry in his book "Infilitration", under the heading; "A Foreign Intelligence Operation".

Kamal Nawash realised that his legal representation of the now jailed head of the American Muslim Council, Abdulrahman Alamoudi, (who was accused. among other things, of masterminding a plot to kill Saudi Prince Abdullah) might be a political liability, especially after Nawash was quoted on the Islamonline website as saying that "the case against Alamoudi was politically motivated", and went on to claim that he 'had been erroneously identified by Islamonline as Alamoudi's attorney. Paul Sperry then asks the question as to why Nawash's signature was found at the bottom of a 'Power of Attorney' affadavit for Alamoudi at the Fairfax Circuit Court.

The spinmeisters of Free Muslims Against Terrorism must be whirling like derwishes on speed to generate a publicity blitz which will make these 'Soldiers of Allah' appear to be the harbingers of Muslim moderation. Their scheduled march against terrorism in Washington DC is going to take place on May 14th 2004. According to ex terrorist lawyer and FMAT 'fuhrer' Kamal Nawash, the FMAT march will show the world that all Muslims want is peace - while leaving out one minor technical detail, namely, that the peace which they are talking about only applies to Muslims, and the terrorism they are condemning does not rule out waging Jihad.....

MIM: According to Free Muslims Against Terrorism the 'Trojan horse' of peace is going to arrive in Washington D.C. on May 14 in the guise of former terrorism lawyer Kamal Nawash, his suicide bomber supporting crony Ray Hanania, and a host of others who are going to show the world that there are really 'nice Muslims'. The list of endorsers of the FMAT march, which is being touted as being as being more historically significant then Saladin vs the Crusaders, includes such heavy hitters as :

The Nawash Law Offices

JPJ Fashions

Scentual Fragrance

The Friendship Caravan

March Against Terror International

MIM: It is worth noting that FMAT has provided two separate lists of endorsers and supporters and that one page of 68 links are all inactive, while another page of 65 links includes 15 active ones, one of which belongs to Free Muslims Against Terror. It is also worth mentioning that out of the 15 active links several are either dead or link to advertisments for schools and services.

FMAT aka FMC, assures 'those of little faith' that 'Allah loves Jews and Christians too', and says they are really sorry for all those "horrors committed in the name of Islam" and are asking people to give them 'another chance'. What FMAT fails to mention is that their co religionists who "committed" the 'horrors" were acting in accordance with Koranic law and are behaving as good Muslims'. Which makes the FMAT/FMC appeal to Christians and Jews not to make their '"final judgement about Muslims and Islam"all the more ominous.

"...The Islam we represent respects other religions and we know that God loves Christians and Jews just as much as he loves Muslims. To those Christians and Jews who watch horrors committed in the name of Islam, we say please don't make your final judgment about Muslims and Islam...

"...As to the March Against Terror, moderate American Muslims recognize that those who commit murder and destruction in the name of Islam are using a warped interpretation of Islamic theology to justify their evil. "... We want to reclaim our religion and we want to send a strong message to the extremists and terrorists that we are against them and we will do all we can to stop them from turning our beloved religion into a murderous ideology..."

As Paul Sperry pointed out in his book "Infiltration" under the 'Top Ten Myths of Islam';

No. 6 -'Osama Bin Laden Hijacked Islam and Distorted it's Teaching';

"...This is a fundamental misunderstanding of both the faith and the enemy. Bin Laden has not betrayed his faith . Quite the contrary , he has honored it like few Muslims have over the past fourteen hundred years of Islam..."

"They (Muslims) call Bin Laden a terrorist but in reality he is a true Muslim hero who deserves to be backed by all Muslims throughout the world..." "I may denounce them, I cannot however disown them..."

Bin Laden did not "hijack" a "great religion"..."He embraced it..." "The horrible truth is, he is a good Muslim, and a model one at that..."

More proof of the FMAT's cynical manipulation of the desperation of people to believe in the advent of the moderate Muslim Messiah is the title of their proclamation - 'Why we are marching against terror', which sounds like a cynical takeoff of the title of the series of Frank Capra's films WWII pro war propaganda films - 'Why We Fight'.

As The Free Muslims Against Terrorism plan to march on D. C. the question once again becomes, with Free Muslims Against Terrorism as friends, who needs the terrorists?

Why We Are Marching Against Terror

MND NEWSWIRE

http://www.mensnewsdaily.com/archive/newswire/news2005/050605-free-muslims.htm

The Free Muslims Coalition (FMC), a national Muslim organization with 13 chapters world wide, is proud to announce that 70 organizations have sponsored the first ever Muslim led March Against Terror. Approximately 20 of the 70 organizations are Muslim, Arab or Middle Eastern. This is the good news. The bad news is that, of the leading Muslim organizations, four have refused to participate or endorse the rally. The absence of these organizations is ironic. For the past 10 years, these organizations have complained that they are unfairly being accused of not doing enough to fight terror. But when a Muslim organization takes the lead to organize a March Against Terror they argue that it is not necessary and refuse to join.

These organizations have done enormous damage to the American Muslim community and Muslims are finally rising up to tell them "you don't represent us or our American Muslim values."

Over the last three years, American Muslims have witnessed the creation of several new progressive, moderate and secular Muslim organizations that actually represent the views of the silent majority and are bypassing the organizations that falsely claim they represent main stream Islam. Their monopoly is coming to an end.

As to the March Against Terror, moderate American Muslims recognize that those who commit murder and destruction in the name of Islam are using a warped interpretation of Islamic theology to justify their evil. Thus, we understand that the war on terror is more than a military battle, it is an ideological battle and the only ones who can win this battle are Muslims themselves. This is why we are organizing this march. We want to reclaim our religion and we want to send a strong message to the extremists and terrorists that we are against them and we will do all we can to stop them from turning our beloved religion into a murderous ideology.

The Islam we represent respects other religions and we know that God loves Christians and Jews just as much as he loves Muslims. To those Christians and Jews who watch horrors committed in the name of Islam, we say please don't make your final judgment about Muslims and Islam. We recognize that we have to clean our own house and we have begun.

Please join us at the rally on May 14th so we can send a clear message to the world that American Muslims, Christians and Jews are united against terror and for a better world. We promise to do our part but please do your part by joining us on May 14th.

Please circulate this message to as many groups and people as possible.

To endorse this rally, please send the name of your group to the Free Muslims Against Terrorism. march@freemuslims.org. www.freemuslims.org
