Welp, it’s that time again.
Time for the “United Muslim-Christian Forum” a.k.a. the “Muslims of the Americas” from Islamberg to go all Interfaith/Co-Exist/Universalist/Pluralist on us in Binghamton, NY.
This time, they’ll be repeating last year’s Interfaith-arific gathering which was described as the “1st Annual celebration of the birth of Jesus, Son of Mary.”
From their press release:
In this upcoming joyful holiday season, where love and reverence for Jesus, born of the chaste Mary, is widely celebrated by Christians the world over, the United Muslim-Christian Forum (UMCF) is embarking on its 2nd annual event as a time for Muslims to acquaint those of their Christian brethren and the world, who are not aware of the fact that Muslims, too, share tremendous love for the blessed Jesus. UMCF invites Muslims, Christians, clergy and brothers and sisters in faith to join us on Saturday, January 8, 2011 at the Days Inn Binghamton, New York for this spectacular unity occasion.
From their “About” page:
The United Muslim Christian Forum was established by His Eminence, El Sheikh Syed Mubarik Ali Shah Gilani, Vice Chancellor of the International Qur’anic Open University to recognize similarities between Muslims and Christians, diminish differences and seek a new solid foundation of joint respect based on the unchallenged commandments of God and love for the blessed Messengers of God (peace upon them all).
Somehow I’m not surprised to find that the “Muslims of the Americas” were apparently welcomed by the UN in 2009:

Here’s a clip from Hannity’s show about the not-so-wholesome side to the “Muslims of the Americas”.
The group has, for three years in a row, held a parade in Binghamton in honor of Muhammad’s birthday. Lots of leftwing Christians join in the interfaith/universalist festivities. Here’s a post about it from the Creeping Sharia blog.
Note: Please check out the Gates of Vienna post to see why their Interfaith efforts are a sham.
