A radical Islamic rally is coming to DC this weekend

On Saturday, radical Islamic activists from across the nation will be protesting outside the White House regarding President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The “Jerusalem is forever the capital of Palestine” rally starts at noon just south of the White House.

Earlier this month, the president recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and ordered the State Department to begin the process of moving the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

This set off a ferocious backlash in the anti-Israel community nationwide. One New Jersey imam even called for genocide against Jews.

If the coming Saturday rally is like the other “pro-Palestine” protests since President Trump’s Jerusalem announcement, one can expect to see some severe anti-Israel and anti-Semitic rhetoric.

FBI prosecutors have labeled several organizations sponsoring the D.C. event this weekend as fronts for Muslim Brotherhood operations in the U.S.

These groups include the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), which was started to raise money for the Hamas terrorist organization, along with the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), and the Muslim Students Association (MAS), American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), among other outfits.

Sponsors also include at least two major mosques known for their connections to terrorist activity.

One sponsor mosque, Dar al-Hijrah, which is located in northern Virginia, was once led by deceased al Qaeda mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki. The mosque was also attended by two 9/11 hijackers, along with several other convicted terrorists.

The Islamic Society of Boston, another mosque sponsoring the event, has a long history of Islamic extremist activity. It was founded by al Qaeda financier Abdurahman Alamoudi, and one of its original trustees was the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, who has called for suicide bombing attacks against U.S. soldiers.

According to Americans for Peace and Tolerance, “Over the past decade, thirteen congregants, supporters, staff and donors of the ISB have been imprisoned, deported, killed or are on the run.”

There is expected to be a significant amount of attendees at the Saturday protest.

According to the group’s Facebook page, Islamist outfits are renting over a dozen buses to bring in fellow supporters from New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and elsewhere.
