From Phyllis Chesler's Chesler Chronicles
On Sunday, May 3rd, at noon, in Times Square, in New York City, a gathering of eagles and of angels will take place. Come rain or come shine, the Human Rights Coalition Against Radical Islam is holding a rally. Please join us. The coalition is composed of Muslim, ex-Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, Christian, Sikh, Buddhist, atheist, and human rights leaders who are "calling for the defeat of radical Islam."
Note: I have not written that the coalition opposes "Islam" (although some may-they view it as a totalitarian, imperialistic, and apartheid political force, not as a "religion of peace"). Nor have I written that the coalition opposes "Muslims" (no one does-although, increasingly, the profound silence of "moderate" Muslims in response to radical Islamist crimes weighs heavily upon all human rights activists).
The groups who are sponsoring this rally include, but are not limited to: Hindu Human Rights Watch, Indian American Intellectual Forum, 911 Families for A Secure America, American Coptic Union, Americans for a Safe Israel, Damanga (Darfur Muslim Council), R.E.A.L. (Responsible for Equality and Liberty), AMCHA, Chinese Community Relations Council, Muslims Against Sharia, Namdhari Sikh Foundation, Women United, Sudan Freedom Walk, Center for Security Policy, International Foundation of Bangladeshi Hindus, ACT for America, Foundation of Nepalese, Alliance for Interfaith Resistance, Stand With Us, etc. There will be many speakers, myself included.
