A Six Flags Theme Park near Chicago, Illinois will be hosting a, “Muslim Family Day” on September 12th of this year.
Supporters point to the fact the date coincides with the end of Ramadan 2010, and that the annual event pre-dates the 9/11 attacks.
Opponents claim the date of the event is insensitive at best, and that the group coordinating the event (the Islamic Circle of North America or “ICNA” has alleged ties to terrorist groups and may have helped fund the 9/11 attacks.

According to the ICNA website their goals include, “…To oppose immorality and oppression in all forms, and support efforts for civil liberties and socio-economic justice in the society. To strengthen the bond of humanity by serving all those in need anywhere in the world, with special focus on our neighborhood across North America. To cooperate with other organizations for the implementation of this program and unity in the ummah.”
However, David Horowitz’s Discover The Networks website paints a decidedly darker picture of the ICNA.
