The Islamic Counterterrorism Institute (ICI), which monitors and reports on high risk anti-America religiopolitical groups based in the United States and abroad, tracked the organizers and attendees of a pro-Iranian regime/Hezbollah event dubbed “Husayn Day Peace Walk.” The reality was far, far from peaceful.
The keynote speaker during the deceiving event, Malcolm Shabazz, did not shy away from engaging in racial and religious incitement by demonizing White Christians and attacking Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Dubai while generously showering praise on the Iranian and Syrian regimes as well as the Lebanon-based international terrorism and crime organization Hezbollah. Shabazz accused the moderate Arab Gulf countries of not doing enough for Palestine and extolled the Iranian regime and its proxies and allies as the role model to be followed.
The event took place at Ogawa Plaza in downtown Oakland on Sunday, December 4, 2011.
ICI produced the following video to share with the public the taste of the Husayn Day “Peace” Walk and expose the true nature of the toxic Khomeinist forces lurking among us:
