It was strange indeed to see the black flag of Islamic Jihad flying over
the White House in Washington, DC. Yet that was the image on the
programs handed out at the annual United American Muslim Day Parade in
New York City in September 2012. Below the photograph were the words
“Islam: the Future of America.”
Though reportedly dedicated to promoting peace and harmony, the parade
ended with speakers spewing such incendiary, offensive rhetoric that New
York State Sen. Tony Avella—a Democrat, VIP parade marshal, and
scheduled speaker—walked off the stage in protest.
Among the diatribes was one by a Brooklyn imam calling for the UN to
pass blasphemy laws criminalizing language offensive to Muslims. Another
came from a young Muslim woman screaming, “We have unborn martyrs in
our wombs.” And Palestinian refugees were referred to as victims of
Israeli aggression who are confined in camps by “Zionist Nazis.”
Ironically, the event took place a mere 12 days after the September 11
attacks on the US Embassy in Cairo, Egypt, and US Consulate in Benghazi,
Libya, the latter of which took the lives of American Ambassador
Christopher Stevens and three members of his staff. Though many
Americans and Western leaders refuse to acknowledge what truly is
happening around the world, it isn’t difficult to connect the dots.
In concert with the attacks, the black flag of Islamic Jihad was hoisted
over the US Embassies in Cairo and Tunis, Tunisia. In fact, the Middle
East was in flames as American flags were trampled and burned by
Islamists who concluded the time was right to gain radical Muslim
hegemony throughout the region.Click here to view the full article, accessible to
