MIM Press Release:"Muslims Only Day" at Six Flags Amusement Park? Protest discrimination on NJ state property

September 15, 2004

"Muslims Only Day" at Six Flags Amusement Park?

"Militant Islam Monitor" has learned that a "Great Muslim Adventure Day" is scheduled to be held on September 17, 2004 at the Six Flags Amusement Park in Jackson , New Jersey. The event is sponsored by the Muslim Youth Division of the Islamic Circle of North America and by the Muslim American Society, two of the largest Muslim organizations in America.

A website indicates that this promises to be the "First Time Ever- All Day - Entire Park Exclusively for Muslims!" The sponsors expect the event to draw more then 10,000 attendees. http://www.icnanj.org/sixflags/

The exclusionary nature of the event, which disallows anyone but Muslims from being present on the fairgrounds, raises questions about the legality of permitting only members of one faith in what is a public venue.

As Dr. Daniel Pipes has pointed out at http://www.danielpipes.org/blog/316:

The New Jersey branch of the Islamic Circle of North America ("The organization of Islamic Workers!") announces that today is "The Great Muslim Adventure Day" at the local Six Flags Great Adventure park. Not only is "This event is designed to provide entertainment for the entire family!" not only will Imam Zaid Shakir lead the Friday prayers at 2 p.m., and not only will the comedy routine "Allah Made Me Funny" show twice, but "Alhamdulillah, the entire park is reserved for Muslims only!" One wonders how the organizers know who is a Muslim or not. Need one recite the shahada to enter the fairgrounds? It is scandalous that Six Flags a publicly held corporation whose stock trades on the NYS'E allows such a restriction for access to its property.

Militant Islam Monitor calls on the management of Six Flags Amusement Park to disallow this discrimination on its property. And MIM calls on the State of New Jersey to cancel this "Muslims Only" event.

The mission statement of the Islamic Circle of North America is illustrated by the events at their Philadelphia 2003 conference giving Muslims "ammunition" for Da'wa (converting people to Islam) and urging them to avoid the "glamourous" and "independent" life of North America.

The Muslim Youth Jihad Camp registration form below speaks for itself .

moving together into the future...
It is that time of the year when ICNA & MAS workers invite Muslims living in North America to convene at a central location and ponder upon the critical issues facing the Muslims in particular and Humanity in general.

WhyIslam Dawah Arena
ICNA-MAS Convention will feature an open air WhyIslam Dawah Arena at Liberty Bell Park in Philadelphia on July 4th and 5th. A reading of "Bill of Rights" will be conducted. Plan to attend the convention and be part of the history.

You can volunteer for this activity. Email us at info@whyislam.org

This is the meeting where Islamic workers get their ammunition for another year to face the challenges of Dawah work in North America.

This is the place where Young Muslims come together to share their experiences of one whole year and learn some more tools to face the challenges of the life in North America.

This is the occasion when Muslim sisters join each others hands once again to strengthen their bond of Islamic sisterhood and make sure not to give in to the so called 'glamorous' and 'independent' life of North America.

This is the place where Muslim brothers/sisters bring their resources together to share the pains and sufferings of Muslim Ummah.

JIHAD

"Jihad is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike something which is good for you and that you like something which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know"
-Surat-al-Baqarah(2), ayah 216

"Thus, when they speak about Jihaad, they speak clumsily and mix up the various stages, distorting the whole concept of Jihaad and deriving from the Qur'anic verses final principles and generalities for which there is no justification. This is because they regard every verse of the Qur'an as if it were the final principle of this deen..." [read more]
