    The host committee for the Democratic National Convention is raising a number of eyebrows after choosing to proceed with featuring Islamic “Jumah” prayers for two hours on the Friday of its convention, though Democrats earlier denied a Catholic cardinal’s request to say a prayer at the same event.


    Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a devout Muslim and the Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, wrote:

    The leaders of this event – Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj [are not] moderates. They are radicals. These individuals embrace Islamist supremacy and have demonstrated support for radical ideologies.

    A quick Google search by the DNC would have shown them that Hough and Wahhaj are leaders in the separatist American Islamist movement. While they may be able to get a few thousand Muslims to attend the event, they are NOT going to be mainstream Muslims. Most will likely come from Hough and Wahhaj’s radical networks that have long been entrenched in the Charlotte area. Make no mistake they are part of the Islamist movement.

    True, they do. I don't trust them anymore.
  4. "The Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA) is hosting an open air Jumah Congregational Prayer at Marshall Park, Charlotte, North Carolina, on 31 August 2012. However, that prayer offering is an independent, non-convention community event which will take place four days prior to the opening of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte on 4 September 2012 and is neither sponsored by the Democratic National Convention Committee nor a part of the official convention schedule.
