United Muslim Christian Forum "Walks" With Binghamton Mayor

Wednesday, 20 May 2009 00:00

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail
BINGHAMTON, Ny – The United Muslim Christian Forum (UMCF) was
recently invited to be a part of a tour of Binghamton hosted by
Mayor Matthew T. Ryan, to review accomplishments of his past years
in office and to discuss his future plans should he be re-elected
joining a small crowd that chanted, “Four more years!”

“I think UMCF presence made a big statement for the Muslim community
as a whole by being there,” noted a representative of the group.
“Upon arrival, there were only about 30 people in attendance, so they
were able give our congratulations and support to the Mayor directly
before talking with other supporters.”

Mayor Matthew Ryan led the one mile walk around Binghamton which started
at the Perry building (a historical site in Binghamton), passing by
Abu’s House of Halal, and ended at the Regency Hotel. There the Mayor
gave a press conference to announcing his running for another Mayoral
term of four years.

“Jawad and Ahmad Muhammad, had the opportunity to stand next to Mayor
Matthew Ryan as he delivered his speech.” By this time total number in
attendance to this event went from 30 to 150 people.

As the day concluded the Mayor spoke with members of the United
Christian Muslim Forum extending his gratitude for their attendance.
The mayor was the guest speaker at the recent UMCF parade.

Another example of “interfaith dialogue”

Remember: ACT! for America’s new TV program premieres Feb. 5th at 2:30 PM ET on Family Net and Feb. 6th at 4:00 PM ET on ALN

Efforts by various Islamic organizations to engage Christians in “interfaith dialogue” are increasing. As you might guess, such efforts are typically selective in what they present about Islam and how they present it.

See the latest below. (Note: we believe the first sentence has a typo, in that it should read “January 8, 2011,” rather than “January 8, 2001.”)



Muslims of the Americas’ New Target: Gullible Christians
Posted By Ryan Mauro On January 23, 2011

On Saturday, January 8, 2001, a nice-sounding organization called the United Muslim Christian Forum [1] (UMC) held an event in Binghamton, New York, for members of both faiths to “share, in unity, their love and admiration for Jesus, son of Mary (peace be upon him).” Gullible Christians and officials have supported the event, unaware or unconcerned that it is a front for the anti-Semitic extremist group Muslims of the Americas [2] (MOA) and its leader in Pakistan, Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani.

There is no excuse for those who have embraced the UMC, as its website says it was founded by Sheikh Gilani and no effort is made to disguise UMC’s status as an MOA front. The UMC website also spouts the same ideology. At a 2008 event, the leadership proclaimed [3] that “…we will no longer be duped or manipulated by a ‘hidden hand’ into fighting, or going to war with each other.” The write-up on the event, which claims 3000 Muslims and Christians attended, then argues that the 9/11 attacks were an “inside job” by the U.S., UK, Israel and international bankers. It describes the attacks as “Stage One of getting the Western world, on behalf of the Jews, to go to war with the Arab world.”

The UMC’s website also carries a letter [4] to President Obama asking him to stop an anti-Muslim conspiracy within the United States. It warns of a “hate campaign, within our own borders, against the American Muslims, [that] MUST come to an end. This campaign is an integral part of the nefarious scheme to bring this nation to its knees by those who have no love for humanity.”

The UMC is an affiliate of the MOA, whose extremism is thinly concealed and well-documented. Sheikh Gilani has called [2] Jews an “example of human Satans.” Even his outreach to Christians is based on anti-Semitism, as he says that “the Jews tried to murder Jesus, son of Mary.” Sheikh Gilani and MOA, like their UMC, blame a Satanist-Zionist conspiracy for 9/11 and not Osama bin Laden, whom Gilani describes [5] as a “Saudi activist.”

In 2009, the Christian Action Network [6] released a film about the use of the MOA’s compounds, some of which are dozens of acres large, for guerrilla warfare instruction. Since then, a law enforcement source has given me a secret MOA videotape [7] showing female members in military attire receiving paramilitary training that included simulated combat with knives and swords and firing guns into a lake at the group’s “Islamberg” headquarters in Hancock, New York. We have also received videotape with the sound of gunfire coming from the MOA’s compound in York County, South Carolina. This is the group that runs UMC.

The spokesman claims that at least 500 people attended this month’s event, including Dr. Diane O’Heron of Broome Community College and a representative of Binghamton Mayor Matthew T. Ryan who said [8] “events like these enrich our community.” Mayor Ryan has also spoken at UMC events where and he is seen on the group’s website holding their sign. A local news report states [8] that members from the 22 MOA “villages” around the country and even as far away as Canada, Pakistan, and Venezuela came to the event.

One of the speakers at the January 8 event was Dr. Ali Mazrui [9], director of Binghamton University’s Institute of Global Cultural Studies. He said in 2002 that “there is … suspicion that some members of the Bush administration in collusion with Israel are more than ready to plunge the Middle East into turmoil in the hope that the final outcome would be to the territorial advantage of Israel and the strategic advantage of the United States. All this is part of the emerging sadism of the United States, a readiness to hurt others abroad.”

Dr. Mazrui also wrote an article in April 2002 titled “Is Israel a Threat to American Democracy?” in which he says that “Israeli neo-Nazism” and “militarism” is what caused the creation of Hamas, al-Qaeda, and other terrorist groups. He accuses Israel of committing “ethnic cleansing” and being the “most effective war machine since Nazi Germany.”

The UMC is just another trick used by MOA to present itself as a moderate group with the help of incredibly na├»ve officials. In August 2008, the New York State Police and FBI gave awards [10] to members of the MOA’s Muslim Scouts of America in Islamberg. In 2005, an FBI Special Agent sent [11] them a note of appreciation, and in the previous year, FBI Special Agent in Charge Leslie Wieser spoke [12] at the graduation ceremony for the scouts at the York County site. Also in attendance were Mayor Eddie Lee, the York County sheriff, and three other FBI Special Agents.

The inclusion of Dr. Mazrui, the publicly available information about MOA, and the extremist rhetoric readily available on the UMC’s website should have been enough to stop any public official, especially Mayor Ryan, from supporting the event. Any official involved with this group is guilty of negligence of an unthinkable magnitude. The community of Binghamton and the surrounding areas need to let Mayor Ryan and other officials know that their participation in the UMC’s events is unacceptable.
