On this year's anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC) is planning a “Million Muslim March" in Washington D.C.
The march is supposed to create awareness about the bigotry that Muslims in the U.S. have suffered since 9/11 and is calling for the U.S. government to reveal “the truth” about 9/11.
However, many people have criticized the march for not focusing on the 9/11 victims who died.
On Fox News 'Hannity" tonight, the conservative host asked the Million Muslim March organizer MD Rabbi Alam, “You want to turn this into a day about anti-Islamic bigotry?”noted Mediaite.com (video below).
Alam began his answer by saying, "Let me start with this-" before Hannity cut him off, "I asked you a question. That's a question."
Hannity later asked the same question again, to which Alam answered: "We’re standing this day to show America that we Muslims, we denounce terrorism and we understand with the solidarity we-” before Hannity cut him off again and said that Alam was contradicting the statement put out by AMPAC.
Later in the interview, Hannity asked Alam if he would condemn Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist groups, but he hedged and would not give a straight answer.
Anti-Islamic activist Brigitte Gabriel, who has attacked President Obama since the day he was sworn in, suddenly defended the president who "went out of his way to even change the words out of our counterterrorism training manuals to take out every reference to Islamic radicalism, Islamic Jihadism, because we do not want to offend the Muslims. We are the victims here, the Americans. And we are offended that people like them have not yet stood up and condemned radicalism.”
