Millions of Muslims Not Marching
In Lodi, California, where an Islamist terror cell was recently uncovered, local Muslims vowed to hold a “Million Muslim March” to show that they reject terrorism.
Well, now that media attention has moved on, the ‘Million Muslim march’ idea falls by the wayside. (Hat tip: SoCalJustice.)
The idea of a “million Muslim march” event in Lodi by Muslims to publicly denounce terrorism has officially died, say those involved.
Envisioned in late June as a response to the allegations of terrorists in Lodi’s Muslim community, the idea drew the interest of Mayor John Beckman, conservative radio host Mark Williams, the Sacramento chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations and local Muslims.
Interest waned, however, when it became apparent the deep division in Lodi’s Muslim community would make organizing such an event difficult if not impossible. It appears it has become impossible, as Beckman said this week the event will not be happening.
