The rally that never was, the rally of unicorns and moonbeams ..............has resulted in a fatwa! Last Friday the Christmas balls bomber was arraigned in a Detroit court. I blogged the reality of the "moderate" Muslim movement here.
The Muslim population of the Detroit area is about 400,000 (some estimate about 3% of Detroit’s metro population is Muslim). Four metropolitan regions -- Los Angeles, New York, Detroit, and Washington -- boast more than 100,000 American Muslims.
So it is disturbing that a protest outside the jihadi's arraignment of Muslims protesting Islamic terror -- "Not in the name of Islam" -- drew so few people. Organizers expected hundreds of local Muslims to join a silent protest Friday in Detroit outside the hearing for Flight 253 terror suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.
"This is people from all over Southeast Michigan coming together and saying we're against terrorism. Our message is going to be louder than the message the terrorists have sent. The masses will be speaking," Majed Moughni told Fox 2. (more here)
The New York Times reported that 12 men and women identifying themselves as Detroit-area Muslims showed (I wonder if they inflated it). This despite major publicity and media attention and pretrial publicity.
What the media that couldn't get enough of this non-existent movement didn't tell you was that the Muslim who organized the "not in the name of Islam" has a death threat on his head. Why? Because he has betrayed Islam. He is a "hypocrite," and like apostasy, hypocrisy is punishable by death.

In any case, for as small as that protest was, the organizer received a death threat for daring to call out the jihadis. From The Detroit Free Press: Muslim rally organizer claims death threats
The Muslim organizer of a rally last week in Detroit against terrorism said he received a death threat over the phone from a man with an Arabic accent who was upset that he spoke out against other Muslims.There we go - the religion of peace strikes again! Moughni had an awesome response to the caller - total Klingonia - albeit we have to take his word for it:
Majed Moughni, a Dearborn attorney who led the rally, told the Free Press he received the threat at about 6 a.m. Saturday from a man who said he was from France.
Dearborn Police Detective James Isaacs confirmed Monday that Moughni filed a police report and said the department is investigating the incident.
Moughni said he was able to record part of the call, which he played for the Free Press.
“I want to congratulate you for your place in hellfire, Inshallah,” the caller said, using an Arabic phrase that means "God willing." "If you’re in front of me, I will shoot you. I will put a bullet in your head. This is the consequence of a hypocrite.”
If true, then kudos to him! Some more details of the caller:Well, this would be a good reason to die.
At another point in the conversation, the caller told Moughni: "You’re a hypocrite and don’t know what Islam is."
...During the phone call, the caller spoke in Arabic while quoting a verse from the holy Quran that suggests Muslims should not be friends with some Jews and Christians, Moughni said. The caller also used the word, kufar, or nonbeliever, during the conversation to describe Moughni, who is Muslim.
