And this year’s Grand Marshall is…

I came across this story from the Canada Free Press (CFP). Minnesota Congressman, Democrat Keith Ellison, will serve as the Grand Marshal of the 22nd Annual Muslim Day Parade in New York City.

Here’s the date to watch: Sept. 9th. This particular parade, which usually runs on the last Sunday in September, has been creeping closer to 9/11 the last five years. The CFP notes, and I agree, that this particular event very well could be a medium for disgruntled terrorists proclaiming their hatred for America.

Here’s the article:

“First Muslim elected to congress Keith Ellison will be Grand Marshal of the 22nd Annual Muslim Day Parade, in New York City. The parade is taking place two days before the sixth consecutive anniversary of 9/11—news totally ignored by what talk show radio giant Rush Limbaugh calls the "drive-by media".

Ellison’s role as Grand Marshal would have been totally ignored were it not for the courage of a single freelance journalist: Joe Kaufman who writes for

Do politically correct times keep the mainstream media from asking why it is that for almost twenty years, the United American Muslim Day Parade, held the last Sunday of September, has crept up on the calendar to Sept. 9, this year?

‘They feel they have to walk a very fine line in the mainstream media. If it weren’t for Front Page Magazine, very few would know that Ellison is leading this year’s parade,’ Kaufman told Canada Free Press in a telephone interview. ‘Questioning anything the organizations behind the parade do comes with being branded a racist.’

But Ellison, who gets a free ride from the mainstream media for participating in anti-American activity, pales in comparison to outrageous parade marshals of other years.

Past parades have included accused death squad leader Ashrafuzzaman Khan, unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Siraj Wahhaj, and Dhabah (‘Debbie’) Almontaser who recently resigned her position as Principal-designate of the Khalil Gibran International Academy (KGIA) children’s school for openly defending t-shirts calling for an Intafada in New York.

The annual parade, expected to draw a cast of thousands, is run by the Muslim Foundation of America (MFA) and co-sponsored by the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).

Masquerading as free speech in action, this year’s parade is what Kaufman calls ‘a pre-9/11 celebration of sorts taking place in New York City.’

The MFA, an organization located in the Astoria section of Queens, was founded in 1983, around the time of the first annual parade.

‘In reality, both the MFA and the parade appear to be one and the same entity with different names,’ says Kaufman. The MFA’s website, since it was first created in October of 2003, has been devoted almost entirely to discussing the parade."

Parade Grand marshals hail from the Rogue’s Gallery of radical Islam.

The Grand Marshal for the 2006 parade was Siraj Wahhaj, a Brooklyn imam who is known for his fiery speeches, including those that have been considered threatening to the United States. In February of 1995, Wahhaj was named—along with such people as Osama bin Laden and bin Laden mentor, Abdullah Azzam—as a potential co-conspirator to the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.

Another Grand Marshal of a past parade was Muzzamil Siddiqi, the former President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a mosque umbrella organization that was recently named a co-conspirator to the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas. Siddiqi, like his sidekick Wahhaj, has also verbally threatened the United States, stating in October of 2000, ‘America has to learn. If you remain on the side of injustice, the wrath of G-d will come.’

Another parade stalwart is Ashrafuzzaman Khan, ex-Secretary General of the Islamic Circle of North America, parade sponsor and a top donor to a Pakistani charity that has been providing tens of thousands of dollars to the head of Hamas, Khaled Mashaal. Khan is accused of being a death squad leader for Al-Badr, the Muslim Brotherhood of Pakistan’s former paramilitary wing, during the 1971 massacre that led to Bangladesh‘s independence, and believed to be personally responsible for the cold-blooded murders of seven Bengali teachers at Dhaka University.

Americans Against Hate will be conducting a peaceful counter-protest at the parade to call attention to the hatred that will be on display by the organizations and individuals involved, about which Kaufman said, ‘We cannot sit idly by, while the memory of the 3000 Americans that died on 9/11 gets trampled on. It is a tragedy that New York City is allowing this event to go on just two days prior to the anniversary of the attacks.’

Meanwhile, Congressman Keith Ellison can be judged by the company he keeps."
