Many non-Muslim Americans are terrified of Muslims, who are portrayed by Hollywood and the US media as fanatical terrorists. Muslims, too, live in fear – of being dragged off in the night to Guantanamo and tortured, simply for the crime of being Muslim in the wrong place at the wrong time.

After discussing the matter with both Muslim and non-Muslim leaders last week of January 2013, the American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC) has decided to abandon the “scary” Million Muslim March. Instead, it will launch a Million American March Against Fear. The march will still be taking place at the National Mall in Washington, DC. And it will still be held on September 11th, 2013.

Why march against fear on 9/11?

September 11th, 2001 was the beginning of a new era of fear. Since 9/11, Americans have been terrorized by the media. They have been taught to fear their neighbors. They have been inculcated with fear of other religions. They have been brainwashed into fearing people with brown skins, turbans, and foreign accents.

The BBC documentary The Power of Nightmares explains how global political elites have embraced the politics of fear. As the BBC film explains, all of this fear is based on myth, not reality. The BBC even admitted: “Al Qaeda is a myth.”

Whether or not Al Qaeda is completely mythical, the so-called “Islamic terrorist threat” is pure hallucination. FBI statistics prove that Americans are far more likely to drown in their bathtubs, or be hit by lightning, than to be killed by terrorists of any kind. And Muslims commit only 6% of terrorist attacks in the US – fewer than are committed by radical Jews, and vastly fewer than those perpetrated by leftists and hispanics.

There is no reason for Americans to be afraid of Muslims.

And Muslims should not be afraid of non-Muslim Americans. Most Americans are generous, tolerant, and committed to American ideals of religious freedom. It is only a certain faction of American elites who have hijacked the nation and turned it away from its Constitution.

It is time to tell the politicians that we are not afraid of each other – or of them.

It is time for us to stop cowering in our homes, and take to the streets.

It is time to join together and reject the politics of fear.

It is time to speak out and reject the destruction of the Constitution of the United States of America. The neocons were able to shred the Constitution because they succeeded, temporarily at least, in making us afraid of each other. But there is nothing to fear. Terrorism is not a statistically significant threat.

They wrote the Patriot Act before 9/11, and rushed it out immediately after 9/11. We accepted it because we were afraid. The two US Senators who were not sufficiently fearful – Tom Daschle and Patrick Leahy – got US government anthrax in the mail.

After that, they too were afraid. They stopped asking questions about 9/11 and the Patriot Act, and just went along with the program.

But as the 12th anniversary of 9/11 approaches, we now know that there is nothing to fear. The whole “terrorist threat” is a hoax invented by fear-mongering politicians to control our minds and pick our pockets.

We shouldn’t fear the truth about the 9/11-anthrax events, either. Only fear can keep preventing a real investigation of these crimes.

As President Franklin Delano Roosevelt so memorably put it: The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

“Al-Qaeda” cannot destroy the Constitution of the United States of America. Only fear can do that.

“Al-Qaeda” cannot even find an operative smart enough to know that plastic explosives cannot explode without a detonator. If you smuggle plastic explosives onto an airplane in your shoe, or tucked into your underwear, and try to light them on fire, the worst thing that could happen is that they might catch fire and burn your own foot, or your own crotch.

Plastic explosives without a detonator is sterno camping fuel – nothing more.

But “al-Qaeda” operatives like “shoe bomber” Richard Reid, and “underwear bomber” Abdulmutallab, are so stupid, so clumsy, so utterly incompetent that not only do they not understand the need for a detonator – they can’t even manage to light a fire and properly burn themselves.

If you’re a smoker, don’t ever ask these guys for a light. You’ll be waiting all day as they try, unsuccessfully, to light a match or a cigarette lighter.

“Al-Qaeda” is a joke.

And so is the whole “war on terror.”

If the United States of America is to remain a constitutional democratic republic, the American people need to stop being afraid.

They must stop being afraid of each other. And they must stop being afraid of the truth.

Please join the Million American March Against Fear in Washington, DC on September 11th, 2013.
