Anti-Muslim Bigotry

Amreekans for Hate

Published

As I alluded to earlier in Texas there was a protest of Muslim Day at Six Flags by a group called ‘Americans Against Hate.’ Some Muslims from the community confronted them while filming a documentary. Below is an email we received from one of the Muslim cameramen who made the video, and then the video itself underneath.

On October 14th, ICNA reserved Six Flags over Texas in Arlington as the Muslim Family Day so that Muslim families could enjoy a solemn Eid together. Reserving a theme park is a common practice for church groups and Six Flags usually allows it when the park attendence is expected to be low. An organization calling itself “Americans against Hate”, spear-headed by Joe Kaufman decided to hold vulgar and demeaning posters in front of the park and protest against the organization for “alledgedly co-conspiring” to give money to the Holy Land Foundation which is still on trial for alledged connections to Hamas. Apparently this connection gave them the right to hold posters bearing “Six Flags over Terrorists” and “Holy Land Foundation Guilty”, marking fear in every driver that passed by in his car.

Joe Kaufman is known for getting in the face of people and taping them. He did so to Rabbi Michael Feinburg in New York and got praise from FOX News for it. So we thought that we should return him the favor and videotape him the duration he was protesting. So we did so silently, but as expected, Joe Kaufman started getting irritated, called the police and tried to engage in a debate that he thought he could heat up in front of the police. But the police didn’t buy it and we just carried on taping him. Pretty soon though, fearing violence, the police requested us the stand at a distance. We complied and the rest is in the video.

    I see nothing wrong with religious or other groups reserving a theme park in advance as long as notice is clearly given. It seems that attendance at this rally was under ten people. Perhaps that is a truer indication of just how much Americans are against hate.

    People like Joe Kaufman and Daniel Pipes are some of the most melodramatic idiots one will find milking the “counter-terrorism” racket.

    Meanwhile, NYT columnist Maureen Dowd has written an interesting article about Horowitz’s “Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week” and the rabid anti-Arab fanaticism of Benito Giuliani.

    These people just proved to be displaying prejudice and what is that, it is pre judging and pre judging is making judgment with out knowledge, this is a very good video displaying the prejudices upon us everyday as Muslims in the United States. All I ask is gain the knowledge before you act which clearly the statement in the Dallas Morning News by Brenda of Duncanville is a a display of a lack of doing so. Thank you brother for the video.

    Kaufman, a supporter of the Extremist JDL Rabbi Meir Kahane who called all Arabs “Dogs” and sought their forced expulsion from Israel has also said in Kahane’s defense that “[i]t was perfectly understandable, if he were to have hated Arabs. Just like, during the Holocaust, it was perfectly understandable for a Jew to hate Germans…If the Kahanes’ memory serves us any purpose, it’s to show that trust (and peace) is ultimately between only ourselves.”

    Kaufman the radical has also written after 9/11 enthusiastically asking for the nuking of Muslim nations: “If the decimation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was the right thing to do, in response to Pearl Harbor, then why the heck are we saving our nuclear weapons now? And furthermore, if we’re not using them, why do we have the nukes in the first place? After all, there is no more Soviet Union to compete with. If the attacks are not a good enough reason to use them, then what are we holding on to them for?!!! Now, at this point, you may think of me as being no less than a madman, but hear me out, for I have a method to my madness.”
