This Muslim, Sharia Event in Dallas Saw No Protest From LiberalsOn Jan. 17 Sound Vision Foundation, a Chicago-based 501 (C) 3 organization held a “Stand With the Prophet” event in Garland, Texas, a suburb outside of Dallas, at the Curtis Culwell Center on Independent School District property. The event, permitted by the Superintendent of Public Schools, launched a Strategic Communication Center for Muslims to advocate censoring and criminalizing non-Muslim speech. Sound Vision asks: “Frustrated with Islamophobes defaming the Prophet? Remember the Danish cartoons defaming the Prophet? Or the anti-Islam film, Innocence of Muslims?” After Muslim “defenders of Muhammad” recently murdered 16 people in Paris, and continue to persecute millions of Christians and non-Muslims worldwide, Sound Vision expressed its commitment to “defending Muhammad.” They claim: “This is not an event. It is the beginning of a movement. A movement to defend the Prophet Muhammad, his person, and his message.” They assert “attacks” against Muslims stem from “media defamation” of their religion and that “Islamophobia is causing problems all around the world.” Featured speakers included John Esposito, head of the Saudi-funded Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University and Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and close friend of the bombing’s mastermind Omar Abdel Rahman. Watch a video here, in which reporters from several news organizations were denied access to the event, discriminated against because of their faith or last name, despite having purchased tickets in advance. At the 2:37-minute mark in the video, Alia Salem, the Executive Director for CAIR’s Dallas/Ft. Worth chapter (who was responsible for dealing with the media) claims ignorance as to why certain reporters were denied access. She did not offer a solution or resolve the issue. More
