The Million Muslim Farce
by William Sullivan
The American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC) announced plans to hold "an historic event for 9.11.13 where one million Muslims will march to Washington, D.C. and demand that our civil rights will be protected by our government." Included in their grievances is that our government hasn't made full release of the 9/11 commission report, and they intend to protest American intervention in the Middle East. They dubbed the event the "Million Muslim March."
That name has proven toxic, and it's not hard to imagine why. Something about the idea of a million Muslims descending upon Washington to express their disgust for America and its foreign policy on the anniversary of a day when some other Muslims famously expressed a disgust for America and its foreign policy by killing thousands of our countrymen in the name of Islam might understandably rub Americans the wrong way. So the event was rebranded (without altering its intent) as the "Million American March Against Fear." But that hasn't given the effort much traction in terms of public opinion.
