United American Committee Announces a National Rally Against
Islamofascism Day

The United American Committee is currently organizing a National
Rally Against Islamofascism Day to be held at venues all over the
United States next Feb. 1st, 2006.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 30, 2005 -- The event, described
on the UAC's website at has
already scheduled 13 locations nationwide where rallies will be held.
Many more locations across the USA are expected to be added as the
scheduled date approaches.

The main rally will be held at Ground Zero at the former location of
the World Trade Center in New York. Other states scheduled to
participate with rallies include Washington, D.C., Virginia, Texas,
Missouri and Arkansas with more signing up each day.

"We figured Ground Zero was the main rallying point, but this is an
event for all who support America regardless of their faith, be it
Christian, Jewish, Muslim or any other. All are welcome to
participate," said UAC leader Jesse Petrilla.

The rally is to solidify and support understanding in the
United States of the hard work done by American law enforcement
agents in the Border Patrol, the Coast Guard, FBI, local police and
all other government agencies who work to protect all Americans
from potential terrorist attacks being planned by the Islamofascist
movement and to encourage people to make their jobs easier.

One goal of the rally is to get all Americans to take the initiative
to report all suspicious activities to the police and FBI that might
out groups from within the United States who are working to aid
terrorists overseas or who might be trying to engage in terrorism
here in America. This includes working to prevent illegal
immigration and preventing funding for overseas groups that may
ultimately go to helping terrorist movements.

Another goal is unconditional support of all American troops
overseas and at home regardless of one's opinion about the War in
Iraq. The Rally will also express total appreciation for the job
done by our men and women in uniform and to find ways to show that

"Muslim groups are especially welcome to join us and show their
support for America," Petrilla emphasized. "The purpose of this
rally is to unify all Americans behind a common goal and against an
enemy that is seeking to destroy values we all hold dearly. He
continued, "This is not a rally to promote hate, but a rally to
promote peace and tolerance and make clear what America stands for.
Republicans, Democrats, Pacifists, all ethnicities are urged to
march on the day of the event and show their true support for the
United States of America."

The UAC's position is that America is still under threats by
Islamofascists and needs to show a unified front against such an
enemy. While some other groups are marching in American cities
accusing the Untied States of being an oppressor or supporting
movements that fight and kill American soldiers, the United American
Committee feels that its time the majority of Americans who feel
strongly about showing a strong face against Islamofascism has come.

The rally will alert Americans to the threats we all face that we
need to recognize and that accusations of bias by certain groups in
the US that secretly work to aid terrorist groups from overseas are
unfounded. The main rally held at hallowed ground at the
World Trade Center will remind Americans to pull together and be
vigilant and work as a team to overcome and defeat those who would
destroy America and what it stands for -- freedom.

Those interested in staging a local rally in their area or for
information about rallying points already scheduled can find
information by contacting the appropriate organizers on the UAC website.

- Demonizing of Western cultural values.

- A complete denial or refusal to discuss how ancient writings in the Qur'an and Muhammad's example are used by jihad terrorists to justify acts of violence.

- Encouragement of the veneration and admiration of ‘Martyrs' (Shahid) and
Islamic war heroes (Ghazi). This category includes the apology of all forms of terrorism.

- Promotion of Anti-Semitism.

- Trivialization of the root causes of Islamic terrorism by pointing out that other religions also have their own fundamentalists.

- Promotion of oppression of women, including promoting the veil (hijab) among women, which has never been required in many Muslim cultures, and more importantly, which is not the innocuous activity militant Muslims would want everyone to believe.
