The Rainbow coalition protested the violation of human rights by political Islam and shariah law. Though drenched in the rain, 300-500 decent and good people made their way to Times Square in NYC and stood up to the Islamic violence and oppression of free men across the world. Spectacularly diverse but unified in our purpose - life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and an absolute end to jihad.
In the pouring rain, out they came - free men from ever corner of the earth to speak out against Islamic suppression, oppression and shariah law. Here are the partners in this coalition.
Tawfik Hamid, former member of the Jemaah Islamiya terror group, joined Buddhist, Hindu, Sikh, Christian, Jewish and other Muslim leaders and organizations to call for defeat of radical Islam and heighten awareness about the danger that Islamic supremacism poses to human rights across the globe.

The "Rally for Human Rights and Freedom," sponsored by the Human Rights Coalition Against Radical Islam (HRCARI), and a new rainbow coalition of dozens of diverse partner organizations, will feature a special ceremony to honor the US Military, Homeland Security, police, firefighters, emergency workers and others who have defended the United States from terror. A representative of the 9/11 Families will be present, as will a retired NYC police officer who lost a family member on 9/11.
FREE MEN STAND!

HRCARI spokesperson notes, “As part of this initiative, we intend to educate elected officials to helps prevent the spread of Shariah Islamic law. We will work to publicize the threat of Radical Islamic terrorist groups and their allies, and endeavor to protect the right to freedom of religion, and freedom of speech in the face of those who seek to silence advocates of human rights against the threat of Radical Islam.”
HRCARI believes that Radical Islam is a worldwide threat against commonly accepted human rights and is the most urgent topic of our generation.
More video coming: Simon Deng, Muhammad Yahya -- stay tuned to Atlas. No one else has it. There was NO MEDIA THERE. A more diverse crowd you could not find -- pleading for the oppressed and not one member of the media -- sans me, of course. Disgusting omission by the corrupt media -- bought and paid for by the forces of evil.
Great Americans -- more pictures, more video and more reportage to come
UPDATE: Below is speech given by Arish Sahani on plight of Hindus under radical Islam.
God Bless America
Dear Brothers and Sisters
I stand before you and feel proud of living in USA.
This country is like a heaven on earth.
I was born In Rawalpindi, now in Pakistan.
We were forced to leave our ancestral land because we were Hindus.
We fled to India in 1947, and in 1971 I Immigrated to USA.
There are millions like me in USA who have come from different countries. What is the status of my Hindu brothers and sisters left behind in Pakistan and Bangla Desh? To quote a Hindu American Foundation report endorsed by several US congressmen and Senators, in 1947 during partition, Hindus in Pakistan were about 25% of population in Pakistan. Today, in about 60 years, that population is reduced to less than 1.6%.
What happened to the millions of Hindus? Mostly they were forced to convert, and many fled the country. The report quotes about the alarming trend of Hindu girls being kidnapped, raped and held in Madrassas and forcibly converted. Pakistan's Government sanctions discrimination through blasphemy laws. Just yesterday, areas captured by Taliban forced followers of the Sikh religion to vacate their homes and businesses for not paying the oppressive Jizya tax.
In 1947, in what is Bangla Desh today, Hindus were 30% of the population. Today they are less than 10% of the population. The report chronicles daily acts of murder, rape, kidnappings, temple destruction and physical intimidation. Bangla Deshi Government promulgated vested property act, which allows it to capture property of Hindus any time; nearly 1.2 million families have their properties taken over by the Government.
What about Hindus in majority India? In one area of India where Hindus are a minority, Kashmir valley, 300,000 Hindus were driven out by radical islamists from their homes using rape, murder and intimidation. They are living in squalid camps for last 18 years. Six to eight families are living in one room with meager assistance from Government. In just the last 4 years both in the number of people died due to terrorism and in the number of terror incidents in India it is just next to the war torn country Iraq.
Can you imagine being forced to live as refugees in your own country? Can you imagine if you have a daughter you never know when she will be kidnapped and converted? Can you imagine witnessing the destruction of your worship places that have thousands of years of history being blown out to pieces? Can you imagine your worship place being converted to a slaughter house? Can you imagine non-Muslims driven away from Michigan, USA and forced to live as refugees in USA? This is what radical islamists are capable of doing. This is violation of human rights and pure genocide by radical Islam.
Now the question is:
Do you want to live under radical Islam?
Do you know what radical Islam is?
Do you know what happens when radical Islam takes over you neighborhood?
Do you know under radical Islam no other religion can exist?
Jews Christian and Hindus will be just killed.
Now there are 57 Islamic nations in this world. The radical islamists in several of those countries want to convert whole world to Islam. We read in the news media that radical Islam wants to put its flag on the White House. They want to take over Europe and India by brainwashing Muslims to increase the population.
Do we know the history of radical Islam? Do the so called political correct journalists have any idea what is in store for the future of the humanity? In the last 1400 years radical Islam is cause for murder of 270 million people, 120 million Africans, 60 million Christians, 80 million Hindus and Sikhs and 10 million Buddhists. In 1399, Sultan Taimur massacred 100,000 Hindus on one day and today the mountain is called ‘Hindu Khush’, the slaughter of Hindus. Did you know what is today’s Taliban dominated areas such as Pakistan and Afghanistan that caused 9/11 attack were just few hundred years ago filled by followers of non-violent and gentle Buddhist religion? According to well known American Historian Will Durant, Islamic invasion of India is probably the bloodiest story of history of Human kind’. Many historians say the holocaust of Hindus in last 1400 years is much bigger than the holocaust of Jews and Gypsies.
Are we going to sit and do nothing?
Will our politicians let radical Islam take over USA?
Will you allow Radical Islam to take our freedom and education system and control lives of our children and women?
Would you like the Shari'a Law under which girls gets no education and women have to cover her body with Black Burka?
Will we allow politically correct media allow to dull our minds to the threat of radical islam?
Will you sit back and watch while Radical Islamists subvert democracies by urging Muslims to increase population by 8 to 10 times than that of native population?
Can you imagine Europe is lost from the free world, which is a reality in less than 3 decades under current demographic studies?
We should also ponder over the question as to who is responsible for spreading radical Islam all over the world. It is Saudi Arabia and new converts to Islam. Saudis are spending billions of dollars in USA, to control our financial institutions, educational system, print and electronic media and financially backing Mosques that teach intolerance. While countries like Pakistan are foot soldiers, Saudi Arabia is funders of terrorism today. Just read about what Saudi Arabia teaches children about other religions, and ponder why so many educated Saudis committed barbaric 9/11.
Unfortunately, the ancestors of many Muslims today went through these brutal experiences. The first victims of radical islamists are Muslims. It seeks to force subjugation of half of population of Muslims by subjugating women to second class citizens. We need to join hands with Muslim brothers and sisters who see through this and have the courage to speak against them and join the hands of all humanity.
Radical Islam is alien culture not fit for this era. It is a brutal past that is being revived by Western Petro Dollars by rogue countries such as Saudi Arabia that would not allow any other religion to be practiced in their country.
I will urge and request law enforcement officials to keep a watch on activities of radical islamists and organizations such as CAIR and Muslim Brotherhood.
Hence, I urge all of you present here that if you want to live in peace and freedom you have to stand up and raise your voice and express your outrage. Stand up for the freedom of all humanity.
Freedom does not come free.
Fight against Radical Islam.
Read all about radical Islam and educate yourself and your Congressmen and Senators about it. Take media to task and let them not cause the suicide of our culture in the name of political correctness.
Make sure that freedom of expression guaranteed under the Constitution is protected.
God Bless America and

UPDATE: Pastor Gerald Bell, a Black minister from Boston who has gone to Sudan several times to witness the redemption of jihad slaves filled in for Charles Jacobs, who had a family emergency.
A great friend and ally, Charles Jacobs, was going to be here to lead off this rally, but he had a personal emergency and he asked me to deliver a short version of his speech. I’m honored to do it.
“May 3rd, 2009. Times Square. Remember this time and this place. This is the moment that freedom loving peoples in America began to fight back against the growing threat of a global movement that aspires to destroy our world, and our freedom.
Here, today, a few miles from where almost 3,000 of us were slaughtered, we -- people of all races and many cultures and countries -- band together to resist the world’s newest barbarism – Radical, Political Islam.
America saved Freedom when it defeated fascism and communism. But today, Political Islam now surges around the globe, on the twin engines of terror and deception. Radical Islamism today enslaves and slaughters blacks in Africa, assaults Christian communities in Iraq, Egypt, Pakistan, oppresses Bahais and Sikhs and Hindus, subjugates and beats women in Islamic communities, murders gays, demonizes and kills Jews, subjugates and hunts moderate Muslims. Radical Islam threatens to conquer the West. Confused, befuddled, imbecilic Western leaders pretend this all away. But we cannot.
We are Americans. And we came here today to do what Americans do best. …
Only in America can all the victims of jihad – black, white, and yellow and brown – gather and join in a brotherhood and a sisterhood of freedom…
Some people, hearing us ring a warning bell will call us paranoid and even “racist.” But… go ask the Black African-Sudanese if jihad is a needless worry. Or the Asian Christian Pakistanis, or the Christians in Egypt and Lebanon and Iraq, or the Hindus in Mumbai, the Bhuddists in Thailand, the Jews in Israel and Europe. We are not the racists.
Paranoid? If you think the Radical Islamist enterprise can never ruin America, then go ask the Europeans -- the French, English, Italians, Spaniards, the Swedes, Danes, Dutch and Belgians.… in whose countries Muslim radicals are in control of large and growing Muslim immigrant populations which now demand that European law be supplanted by Islamic Sharia Law… and where police fear to enter “no-go” hostile Islamist enclaves. Because they will be hounded and humiliated.
So how can America defeat this barbarism? By being what America has been – a pluralist society based on liberty, defending freedom. .. only here can all of the victims of jihad, all those … threatened by jihad, and even those who might have been tempted by the supremacist visions of Jihad, instead join in a brotherhood and sisterhood of freedom.
Here, we are guided by America’s doctrines of liberty which were created to defeat tyranny, and which have defeated tyranny. Today, we stand united, ready to fight for our freedom and the freedom of all those who are oppressed and threatened by Radical Islam. We will do everything … to defend our lives, our civilization and our freedom.
We came here to say to you, “We have had enough.” In fact, WE’VE JI-HAD ENOUGH!
AGAIN, “WE’VE JIHAD ENOUGH!”
LET’S HEAR IT: “WE’VE JI-HAD ENOUGH”
