DNC Announces 2-Hour Islamic ‘Jumah’ Prayers After Rejecting Cardinal’s Blessing (And You Won‘t Believe Who’s Invited)
By Erica Ritz:
The Democratic National Committee is raising a number of eyebrows after announcing that it will be hosting Islamic “Jumah” prayers for two hours on the Friday of its convention, soon after denying a Catholic cardinal’s request to say a prayer at the same event.
Watch the promotional video, via the Bureau of Muslim Affairs, which is partnering with the DNC for the event.
The first two minutes are rather dry, but around 2:04 a muezzin sings the call to prayer with an American flag background, and the video “picks up” considerably: [snip, video here]
And while Muslim-Americans undeniably face distinct challenges, those who are well-informed on the dangers of radical Islam are expressing their doubts about the 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. (continue reading at the Counter Jihad blog, via the Flying Camel, also see Atlas Shrugs on the subject)
