This is a kettle of fish nobody wanted, yet the clash between the two groups is a natural offshoot of the cultural differences between veterans and Muslims. Strange how, after questions were raised the name was changed and the Muslim was eliminated from the gathering. Now called "Million American March against Fear" this new name begs the question; is there a concern some may see the word Muslim in the wrong light? Are we not supposed to conflate Muslim with peaceful protest?

'Million Muslim March' tries Hijack of '2 Million Bikers to DC' Rally
While the "Million Muslim March on DC" has fueled a wide range of US reactions, major event organizers for a rival US protest group were treated to a rather remarkable episode of infiltrative subterfuge from both the Million Muslim March group and its stealthy media disciples behind the scenes.
It was the much earlier idea of a Ground Zero mosque from the US Islamic movement which sparked a firestorm of US controversy when announced in May of 2010. Now, the controversy surrounds an already infamous "Million Muslim March on DC," slated for 9/11/13, and coming exactly one year after the 2012 deaths of Ambassador Stevens and three others at the hands of Islamic terrorists in Benghazi.
But, there is one particularly patriotic group of Americans who have a serious problem with the Million Muslim March idea, and it's not exactly your ordinary political action group. In an outraged response to what many consider to be an ongoing insult to the memory of 9/11 by Islamists, America's prolific and often rough-riding Bikers have taken issue with the radical Muslim group and are planning a counter-rally ride in DC to voice their opposition titled, the "2 Million Bikers to DC" rally, also to be held on 9/11.
The Biker Group organizers state that what many may not initially understand is the fact that the Million Muslim March group is not exactly your typical religious protest group, either. Below is the Muslim group's direct initial statement on the planned protest march from a January press conference held in New York:
"One million Muslims will march to Washington D.C. and demand that our civil rights be protected by our government. We are demanding that laws be enacted protecting our First Amendment rights. We are asking President Obama to fulfill his promise from his first campaign for the Presidency of a transparent government. Lastly we are asking for the establishment of a real 9/11 Commission to reveal the truth to the American people.”
While the events surrounding the Benghazi debacle continue to outrage both politicians and Americans alike, at the same time bedeviling the ongoing pro-Islamic efforts of the White House, the initially stated goals by the Islamist group seem to diverge from the radically moderated MMM message heard more recently (7/31)
"We American Muslims reject violence and terrorism, and defend the Constitutional rights of all Americans," says MD Alam, founder of AMPAC. "Every year on September 11th, beginning in 2013, we will be marching in Washington DC as we build toward our goal of bringing one million American Muslims to march in our nation's capital."
The question that is increasingly being asked is which version of the Million Muslim March should Americans believe? Perhaps one particularly important clue might be the more recent change in name of the Islamic protest event. After the initial public outcry aimed against the event's radicalized title, the Muslim march was renamed "Million American March Against Fear," which completely altered the group's initially publicized reason for marching in the first place.
But was the group's inital goal replaced?
"Not so," says Charlotte Grass-Roots Activist, Belinda Bee, of the Opposition Biker Rally group. Bee believes that the name was changed only to co-opt innocent, peace-loving, Americans into taking part in the Muslim march event. Bee may be right, in fact, as she points to the Muslim practice of "Taqiyya," which in shi'ia Islam means to subvert or hide the truth in order to further the aims of Islam.
According to event spokeswoman and co-founder Bee, the number of possible Riders participating in the event is growing by leaps and bounds daily. The "2 Million Bikers to DC" group has already netted an astounding amount of attention on Facebook and throughout social media sites. Just in one day alone, the group's Facebook page grew by over 8,000 "Likes" to a total of over 32,000 "Likes" at this writing, and in only matter of several days.
A Bit of Islamist Subterfuge
The "2 Million Bikers to DC" rally, which is the brainchild of Biker Billy Williamson of Virginia, appears to be no less popular than the Overpasses for the Impeachment of Obama groups which have spread like wildfire throughout the US. But the confusion surrounding the Islamic event's true aims, along with an unsettling bout of subterfuge parlayed against the Biker to DC group by the Muslim March leaders, has left many participants and even event organizers scratching their heads in confusion.
According to event organizer Bee, many Biker members were stunned to learn that their organization had supposedly accepted an invitation from the Million Muslim March to join with their group, thereby stealthily co-opting the original intent of the Biker's rally as being in opposition to the Islamist event in the first place. Bee states, in effect, that the original title of the rally was "2 Million Bikers to DC Against Million Muslim March," but thought better of it when considering the overall negative implications of the two groups possibly clashing in DC. Rumor has it that the Bikers riding "guard" or "shotgun" for the event aren't exactly the "lightweights" of America, either.
On the website Veterans Today, an ideologically Left-leaning site, which often shares writers with other pro-Islamic, anti-semitic sites, Islamist ideologue writer Kevin Barrett, who is also a spokesperson for the sponsoring American-Muslim Political Action Committee, confirms the Biker event organizers' claims that Million Muslim March leaders were playing fast and loose with the truth regarding the 2 Million Bikers' having joined in the Million Muslim March.
