Another stab in the eye of America.........."Muslim Family Day" on September 12th. Vile. Six Flags hosts the annual Muslim Brotherhood front, I.C.N.A., for Muslim Family Day on September 12. "This event offers fun for the entire family and will also offer halal food stalls." (more here)
Americans Against Hate chief Joe Kaufman said while the event itself may be insignificant, the sponsor is a worry.
The Muslim Family Day website identifies the group as the Islamic Circle of North America, or ICNA.
"Does Six Flags have any idea who ICNA is or what ICNA represents?" asked the Creeping Shariah blog author. "Here is just a little background…"
ICNA has established a reputation for bringing anti-American radicals to speak at its annual conferences. Moreover, experts have long documented the organization's ties to Islamic terrorist groups. Yehudit Barsky, a terrorism expert at the American Jewish Committee, has said that ICNA 'is composed of members of Jamaat e-Islami, a Pakistani Islamic radical organization similar to the Muslim Brotherhood that helped to establish the Taliban.' (Pakistani newspapers have reported that Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, a leading architect of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, was offered refuge in the home of Jamaat e-Islami's leader, Ahmed Quddoos.) On September 27, 1997, another Pakistani Islamist leader, Maulana Shafayat Mohamed, played host to an ICNA conference at his Florida-based fundamentalist madrassa (religious school), which served as a recruitment center for Taliban fighters.
Kaufman wrote an article in 2007 criticizing ICNA and the Islamic Association of North Texas for a "Muslim Family Day" at a Six Flags location there. He noted the Muslim organizations is suspected of funneling money to the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and al-Qaida.
WND subsequently reported when a group of Islamic organizations – although not the two Kaufman named – sued him for defamation and lost. Kaufman had written an article for the online FrontPage Magazine exposing terrorist connections in two American Muslim groups.
The subsequent lawsuit was part of a technique called by some "legal jihad" or "Islamist lawfare." The Thomas More Law Center, which represented Kaufman in the lawsuit, explained Muslim advocates are using the strategy to bully online journalists into silence.
