This is why practicing Muslims should not be allowed in U.S. politics. Yet another mole in Congress:
"America will never tap into educational innovation and ingenuity without looking at the model that we have in our Madrassas, in our schools where innovation is encouraged. Where the foundation is the Koran," Rep. Andre Carson (D-Indiana) said at the ICNA-MAS convention at the end of May. See video at RCP, the Right Scoop, hat tip Drudge.
As Robert Spencer says, "In madrassas they generally teach only the Qur'an. And sometimes bomb-making."
Maggie's Notebook has more, plus:
NiceDeb has much more, including a connection of the ICNA to terrorism, Carson lying about the TEA Party, and a video of his entire speech.
From WND, more of what Carson said:
... America must understand that she needs Muslims.”
He adds, “There are over 7 million Muslims in this country. And while we are under attack, we cannot retreat.”
Carson is married to Mariama Shaheed Carson, public-school principal of Snacks Crossing Elementary School in Indianapolis, Ind.
Practicing Muslims should not be elected to US political offices.
