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.
