Muslims of the Americas' New Target: Gullible Christians
On Saturday, January 8, 2001, a nice-sounding organization called the United Muslim Christian Forum (UMC) held an event in Binghamton, New York, for members of both faiths to "share, in unity, their love and admiration for Jesus, son of Mary (peace be upon him)." Gullible Christians and officials have supported the event, unaware or unconcerned that it is a front for the anti-Semitic extremist group Muslims of the Americas (MOA) and its leader in Pakistan, Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani.
There is no excuse for those who have embraced the UMC, as its website says it was founded by Sheikh Gilani and no effort is made to disguise UMC's status as an MOA front. The UMC website also spouts the same ideology. At a 2008 event, the leadership proclaimed that "…we will no longer be duped or manipulated by a 'hidden hand' into fighting, or going to war with each other." The write-up on the event, which claims 3000 Muslims and Christians attended, then argues that the 9/11 attacks were an "inside job" by the U.S., UK, Israel and international bankers. It describes the attacks as "Stage One of getting the Western world, on behalf of the Jews, to go to war with the Arab world."
The UMC's website also carries a letter to President Obama asking him to stop an anti-Muslim conspiracy within the United States. It warns of a "hate campaign, within our own borders, against the American Muslims, [that] MUST come to an end. This campaign is an integral part of the nefarious scheme to bring this nation to its knees by those who have no love for humanity."
