On September 2, William Donohue participated in a unity rally in Harlem at the famous Sylvia’s restaurant. The rally was orchestrated by the Jewish Action Alliance and several leaders in the African American community, the purpose of which was to protest the “Million Youth March” of Khalid Abdul Muhammad. Donohue was the only representative of the Catholic community to appear at the rally.
The march, which drew only a few thousand people, came under fire because of the anti-Semitic, anti-Catholic, anti-white and anti-gay rhetoric of Mr. Muhammad. Donohue went on TV branding Muhammad “a gangster” and the “Imperial Wizard” of the black community.
The Catholic League notes with pride that the media, after much haggling, finally picked up on our demand that Muhammad be labeled as anti-Catholic, as well as anti-Semitic.
