America - Muslims Cancel Terror Protest

A planned "million Muslims" march against terrorism has been cancelled.

The idea of a "million Muslim march" event in Lodi by Muslims to publicly denounce terrorism has officially died, say those involved.

Envisioned in late June as a response to the allegations of terrorists in Lodi's Muslim community, the idea drew the interest of Mayor John Beckman, conservative radio host Mark Williams, the Sacramento chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations and local Muslims.

Interest waned, however, when it became apparent the deep division in Lodi's Muslim community would make organizing such an event difficult if not impossible. It appears it has become impossible, as Beckman said this week the event will not be happening.

A similar planned event last year in Washington DC attracted only 50 people.

And in Britain plans for an anti-terror march in the aftermath of the London bombings was also axed.

A MARCH which was planned by Muslims in Edinburgh to demonstrate their opposition to the London terrorist attacks has been cancelled.

Muslim leaders met to discuss a possible march at the weekend, but have decided to hold low-profile local events instead.

Dispite hundreds of thousands of Muslims being murdered and tortured, there were never any Muslim marches to protest against the Taleban in Afghanistan or Saddam in Iraq. But when the US liberated millions of Muslims in both countries, Muslims took to the streets in protest. Muslims murdered Muslims on 9/11 and in the London attacks and yet Muslims refuse to march and denounce Muslim terrorists. Why?

Because they can't. Islam forbids them to denounce fellow Muslims even though they are murders and terrorists. That's why Iqbal Sacranie, the secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, says Muslim terrorists do not exist.

'There is no such thing as an Islamic terrorist. This is deeply offensive. Saying Muslims are terrorists would be covered by this provision'. [Britain's proposed religious hate law]

And that's why you will never see Muslims marching against terrorism or publicly denouncing, by name, bin Laden or al Qaeda.

Deporting radical Muslims is just the start of the battle, reforming Islam is the true challenge.
