Insha Allah, on September 16, 2005, the New Jersey theme park, Six Flags Great Adventure, is set to be transformed as 'The Great Muslim Adventure Day', an event organized by ICNA. This event is designed to provide entertainment for the entire family! Alhamdulillah, the entire park is reserved for Muslims!
MIM: More examples of how the Islamic Circle of North America attempts brazen 'hijack' quintessential American events and activities and rewrite history to show that they are part of Islam can be seen in the claim that 'July 4th is Islam's holiest day" and that the ICNA convention is intended to show how far America has drifted away from 'Islamic ideals'.
ICNA-MAS Convention (July 4-5-6, 2003) Date: Friday, June 27 @ 09:48:22 CDT Topic: Muslim Action Network
By RON GOLDWYN Convention could bring $16M to Philadelphia
The colorful mix of visitors and locals converging in central Philadelphia for the 4th of July will be swelled by 15,000 highly visible American Muslims.
The Muslims are coming to show their patriotism, join the fun and to make a statement about "the struggle for liberty and justice," their theme.
The joint convention of the Islamic Circle of North America and the Muslim American Society (MAS) will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center July 4-6. Events include a reading of the Bill of Rights by Muslims at the Liberty Bell on the afternoon of July 4.
"This year, when we are focusing on 'America at a Crossroads,' we are coming to Philadelphia because Philadelphia stands for the ideals of American liberty and freedom," Talat Sultan, Islamic Circle's president, said at a press conference at PCC yesterday.
"The whole convention will focus on what are American ideals, what are Islamic ideals, and how far America has really drifted awy from these ideals," he said.
Muslims say Islam is the fastest growing religion in the United States, with six million members. Those coming to Philadelphia will be African-Americans, other American-born Muslims and those of Middle Eastern and South Asian nationality, many naturalized citizens.
They will be "quite visible. You will see them everywhere," said Sultan. "As Muslims, they are visible anyhow, they have headgear" and other distinctive garb including scarves for women, some with face covering."
PCC officials said the convention has a potential $16 million impact on the hospitality industry.
Sultan said the program is still being planned, but many events will be family oriented. Since the 4th of July is a Friday, Islam's holiest day, a PCC room will be set aside for Jumah prayer.
Imam Asim Abdur Rashid of the Philadelphia Masjid, the council of local Islamic leaders, expects the city to be welcoming because Muslims have been well accepted here. He said there were fewer anti-Muslim bias attacks here than in other locales after 9/11.
"Philadelphia is a unique town in that it is really Islamicized," he said. "Anywhere you look you see Muslims."
The Islamic Circle, based in Queens, New York, has convened in early July for 28 years, but this is its first meeting in Philadelphia. It's also the second year joining with the MAS.
"Strategically, we are piggybacking on the people Philadelphia is drawing," said Islamic Circle official Abraham Quadri.
"What better way to tell people that American Muslims are not different? We are Americans. We are going to celebrate in the heart of liberty. What better way of making a statement?"
