U.S. military personnel told to not to eat, drink in front of Muslims…in Maryland

Enforcing the sharia. via Troops told to refrain from eating, drinking in front of Muslims | Todd Starnes

Do not eat or drink in front of Muslims, and learn more about their religion.

That’s the directive that has gone out to active duty military personnel at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, a Department of Defense medical and graduate school in Bethesda, Md.

The brigade commander sent an email to military personnel at the facility last month – just before the start of Ramadan – advising them to show respect to Muslim colleagues.

“This is a period of great personal restraint and commitment in addition to renewed focus on worship,” Brigade Commander Col. Kevin Glasz wrote. “I’d like to encourage you to learn just a little more about this religion, but more importantly, I’m asking you to be considerate and do not consume food or drink in front of our Muslim colleagues; it is a simple, yet respectful action.”

During the month-long period known as Ramadan, Muslims refrain from eating or drinking during daylight hours.

The brigade commander also provided a link to a website about Islam, and specifically Ramadan.

Now that raised the ire of some of the officers and doctors training at the USU, and several of them reached out to me with their concerns – provided I not disclose their names.

“I respect the intention behind this email, but note that there is no similar call honoring other faiths,” one Marine told me. “There is no similar invitation for non-Jewish colleagues to refrain from eating leavened products during Passover, or non-Christian colleagues to refrain from eating meat during Lent.”

The entire incident smells of political correctness, the Marine told me.

“Our veterans have sacrificed too much blood, sweat and tears to have their own rights and freedoms be sacrificed on the altar of progressive political correctness,” the Marine said.

I contacted USU about the email. I wanted to understand the brigade commander’s intent. I gave them 20 days to respond, but no one returned my calls or emails.

Another individual who studies at USU was concerned about the wording of the email.

“It could be construed as an order and one that violates the First Amendment freedom of everyone who received it,” my source said. “This is an appalling violation, especially coming on the heels of so many instances where those of conservative Christian faith in the military are vilified.”

China: Dozens of knife-wielding ‘terrorists’ shot dead after Muslims attack govt buildings

Is there a country where Muslims aren’t waging jihad? via Knife-wielding ‘terrorists’ shot dead by police as they attacked government buildings in China | Mail Online.

Chinese police shot dead dozens of knife-wielding ‘terrorists’ dead yesterday after they attacked two towns in the country’s western Xinjiang province.

A gang armed with knives assaulted a police station and government offices in the town of Elixku, in Shache county, according to local police.

Some then moved on to the nearby town of Huangdi, attacking civilians and smashing and setting fire to six vehicles.

‘Police officers at the scene shot dead dozens of members of the mob,’ a brief report from the country’s state-controlled Xinhua news agency said.

An initial investigation showed that it was an ‘organised and premeditated terrorist attack’, Xinhua added.

The dead and injured include not just Uighurs, a Muslim people native to the region, but members of China’s majority Han Chinese population, the report said.

The attack took place at the end of the holy month of Ramadan, which officials had tried to suppress in Xinjiang, an indication of what rights groups say is discrimination targeting the Uighurs.

Xinjiang, home to many Turkic-speaking Uighurs, has been marked by violence for years which the government blames on Islamist militants or separatists.

Officials say the rebels are bent on establishing an independent state called East Turkestan.

Earlier this year bomb attacks on a market in in Urumqi, capital of Xinjiang, left 39 people dead.

China says Uighur militants have based themselves in countries including Afghanistan and Pakistan in recent years, and this week China’s special envoy for the Middle East said some had also likely been trained in Syria and Iraq.

Xinjiang, resource-rich and strategically located on the borders of central Asia, is crucial to meeting China’s growing energy needs.

Exiles, rights groups and many foreign experts say that most of the proceeds from this industry have gone to the Han Chinese, stoking resentment among Uighurs.

More than 200 people have died in unrest in Xinjiang in the past year, the government says, prompting a tough crackdown by Beijing.

Violence blamed by China on Uighur extremists has begun to spread outside of Xinjiang. In March, 29 people were stabbed to death at a train station in the southwestern city of Kunming.

 

Detroit: Jimmy Carter to keynote unindicted co-conspirator ISNA convention

The CSRL (Community Service Recognition Luncheon) is a program hosted by ISNA and the ISNA Founders’ committee (IFC) to recognize an outstanding leader in the North American Muslim community. We are expecting more than 1000 guests to join this event which will take place at the Cobo Center on Saturday August 30, 2014. Tickets can be purchased online as part of the ISNA Annual Convention Registration.

Background on ISNA via gmbwatch:

As documented in a Hudson Institute report, ISNA grew directly out of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. The organization has a long history of fundamentalism, anti-semitism, and support for terrorism and during the recent Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial, ISNA was named as an unindicted co-conspirator as a result of what the government called “ISNA’s and NAIT’s intimate relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood, the Palestine Committee, and the defendants in this case.”

 And so Carter fits in well with this terror-linked group, as past Creeping Sharia posts have proven:

Palm Beach: Lebanese brothers get 6 years in $6M food stamp racket

Is south Florida becoming a Middle Eastern cesspool replete with Hamas terrorists? Sure seems that way. via Palm Beach County brothers get 6 years for running food stamp… | www.palmbeachpost.com. h/t Refugee Resettlement Watch

WEST PALM BEACH — Two Palm Beach County brothers who funneled millions in federal food stamp money back to their native Lebanon were sentenced to nearly six years in prison Thursday for scamming the program that is intended to feed the poor.

With engineering degrees from top universities, Ali Jaber, 52, and his 42-year-old brother, Hadi, could have become role models for fellow immigrants, prosecutor Carolyn Bell told U.S. District Judge Donald Middlebrooks. Instead, they used their store, Fajita’s Meat & Fish on 10th Avenue North, to defraud the federal government.

Even their attorneys acknowledged that the two should have known better than to get involved in the scam. Instead of charging customers’ debit-style food stamp cards for groceries, the brothers gave the customers cash. They charged customers as much as 50 percent commission for the service and were reimbursed by the government for the bogus transactions.

“He should have known better at his age and with his education,” said attorney Fred Haddad, who represents Ali Jaber, who has a master’s degree in mechanical engineering.

But Haddad and attorney Lawrence Hashish, who represents Hadi Jaber, argued that the scam wasn’t as lucrative as prosecutors claimed. Middlebrooks pointed out that as part of a plea deal, their clients admitted they had defrauded the federal food stamp program of $4 million even though prosecutors said it may have been as much as $6 million.

But, the attorneys insisted, not all of the food stamp transactions at the meat market were fraudulent. The brothers processed $1,000 to $2,000 worth of legitimate food stamp payments every day, Hashish said.

Bell countered that when federal agents took an inventory of the store they loaded up shopping carts full of expired food. That, she said, raised doubts about Hashish’s claims of legitimacy.

While the brothers, who are U.S. citizens, agreed to repay the money, there is little evidence they have the wherewithal to do so. Ali Jaber declared bankruptcy. A house Hadi Jaber purchased in Greenacres will be sold and the proceeds will go to the federal government. It is worth about $220,000, according to property records.

Most of the money was sent to banks in Beirut, Lebanon, where the Jabers have relatives, according to court documents. That money, government officials say, is impossible to retrieve.

An employee, Daniel Velazquez, pleaded guilty to theft of government property, and was sentenced to five months in jail. Food stamp recipients, who benefited from the operation, were prosecuted in state court.

News flash for Pelosi: Qatar funds Hamas

Jonathan Schanzer, vice president of research at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told JNS that Qatar is “believed to be the primary financier of Hamas.” And the Islamist group, which is currently at war with Israel in Gaza, is reported to have estimated annual expenses of some $1 billion.

In 2012, then Qatari Emir Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani became the first head of state to visit Gaza since Hamas seized power there in a bloody 2007 battle with Fatah. Al Thani, who was driven around Gaza by themn Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh, pledged some $400 million to the strip. His son, the British-educated Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, took over as emir following his father’s abdication last year, and is known to look on Hamas just as favorably.

Florida: Hamas spray painted on cars, swastikas on synagogue

(CBSMiami) – For the second time in as many days, messages of hate targeted members of South Florida’s Jewish community.

Early Monday morning, spray painted swastikas and the word “Hamas” were discovered on the pillars in front of the Congregation Torah Ve’emunah, at 1000 NE 175th Street, in northeast Miami-Dade.

“It was the worst thing that one wants to see on his own place of worship,” said a member of the temple.

A member of the community watch discovered the vandalism around 1 a.m.

“As I was rolling by I noticed some coloring on the wall,” said Yona Lunger. “I back up again, looked again and I said ‘wow, it’s a swastika’. It’s very disturbing, very disturbing.”

On Saturday, a family who lives along Meridian Avenue in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood of Miami Beach found their cars had been vandalized as they left to attend a service at their synagogue.

“They wrote “Hamas” on the back of the car window and they wrote “Jew,’” said Joshua, who didn’t want us to publish his last name.

The two vehicles were covered with eggs and smeared with cream cheese, but it’s the meaning behind the words that left many in the predominantly Jewish community concerned.

“Since it was a Jewish holiday people were going back and forth and it was the talk of the neighborhood and they were all scared,” added Joshua. “That we have a hate crime in our own Jewish neighborhood.”

“Everyone was shocked,” said Rachel, whose car was also targeted. “No one knew what was going on, we’re like this is America, this is Miami. Why would we be targeted here? We’re supposed to be safe, free from anti-semitism.

With the escalating aggression between Israel and Hamas in the Middle East, some are wondering if the right abroad has now made it to their own home turf.

“It’s terrible and it really shows that the Islamic terrorists have taken this fight to the United States,” said Mark Goldstein.

It shows that any Muslim in the U.S. at any time can and eventually will show their true colors.

As the deadly month of jihad closes, Obama extends ‘warmest wishes to Muslims’

via The White House:

Office of the Press Secretary

Statement by the President on the Occasion of Eid-al-Fitr

As Muslims throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to them and their families.  This last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate.  While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease.

In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.

History is clear that no Muslim contributed to the fabric of the United States, so the question to be asked is the nuance of Obama’s statement. What nation is he referring to when he says “our nation”?

That is why we stand with people of all faiths, here at home and around the world, to protect and advance their rights to prosper, and we welcome their commitment to giving back to their communities.

On behalf of the Administration, we wish Muslims in the United States and around the world a blessed and joyous celebration.  Eid Mubarak.

As has been noted repeatedly, Ramadan is the “month of jihad” and Muslims worldwide have proven that again this year with deadly results.

In the United States, Hamas is here. They’ve been here. Now they are coming out of the closet. They are growing more violent and more emboldened as local police and the race-baiting DOJ do absolutely nothing.

Philadelphia: City Hall turns into mosque for taxpayer-funded Iftar service

via Iftar service in City Hall a success.

The City of Philadelphia held its 2nd annual Iftar, in recognition of Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting, on July 15 at the Mayor’s Reception Hall.

Roughly 200 people, including Muslim community leaders, business professionals and elected officials attended the Iftar, which is the “nightly meal eaten by Muslims who have fasted during the day as an observation of Ramadan.”

“The most outstanding thing is the opportunity for unity in the Islamic community,” said Salima Suswell, an event spokesperson. She added that “like many religions” the different congregations within Islam “don’t get to share time with each other because they are so busy working in their respective communities. The Iftar is an opportunity for them to get together and celebrate the month of Ramadan.”

The ceremony featured youth presentations, a Maghrib prayer, spoken word and remarks from Mayor Michael Nutter; Councilman Curtis Jones Jr. and Ryan N. Boyer, business manager for the Laborers District Council, who hosted the Iftar; Katera Y. Moore, of the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR); and Khalid Blankinship. Ph.D., who gave the keynote address.

“Philadelphia is a city founded on the principles of religious freedom and tolerance [and] I have tremendous respect for the many, many members of the Muslim community,” Nutter said.

“And we all would do well to better understand the many religions practiced in our city, across the country and around the world. The people in Philadelphia who practice the faith of Islam are people who worship regularly, look after their children, are actively engaged in their community and are peace loving, law abiding citizens of Philadelphia.”

Dearborn Heights clerk facing allegations of misconduct after thwarting Arab voter fraud

Muslim voter fraud has crept up in Minnesota and Ohio and Tennessee and Michigan and Michigan again and…

via The Arab American News

Dearborn Heights City Clerk Walter J. Prusiewicz submitted his letter of resignation on Tuesday, July 22, amid allegations he’d intimidated Arab American voters who were trying to cast absentee ballots for the upcoming mid-term primary.

However on Thursday, he rescinded his resignation letter, telling reporters he would serve out his term.

According to Fatina Abdrabboh, the Michigan director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC-MI), several Arab American residents of the city filed complaints with the organization over the last two weeks because they faced excuses preventing them from voting at the clerk’s office.

Abdrabboh said the excuses ranged from statements that absentee ballots would be mailed to the voter, to claims that the voter did not have proper identification. She forwarded a report of the complaints to city officials, who either ignored her inquiry or dismissed her claims outright.

In an interview with The Arab American News, Dearborn Heights Mayor Dan Paletko distanced himself from Prusiewicz, calling for either the secretary of state or the Wayne County clerk to oversee the elections in the city. He also confirmed that some ballots were denied.

“The city clerk is elected separately,” Paletko said. “I had a chat with him. I do not fully understand why the absentee ballots were denied. The reasons he provided were more technical than practical.”

The mayor said he takes the allegations seriously. He added that challenging absentee ballot requests is a concern, because it runs the risk of denying citizens’ right to vote.

“Voting is the primary right established in a democracy,” he said. “There is a significant reasonable doubt being placed over the vote. To assist the process, we have to remove that doubt by having a new party run the elections.”

He added that he fears the story will bring negative national attention to the area, which is already struggling with image and looking like a “third world country” because of the Detroit water crisis. Hence, he said, he wants the election to not be handled by the city clerk’s office.

Clearly not the only reason Dearbornistan is looking like a third world country.

Abdrabboh said she is disappointed in the city’s lack of response to the local Arab American community. She said she reported the story exclusively to The Arab American News on July 23, in an attempt to relay the message to the community as soon as possible.

The ADC believes the denial of the absentee ballots by the clerk’s office was racially motivated.

“The number of complaints is alarming,” said Abdrabboh. “As a community organization we do our homework. We have gathered that non-Arab absentee applications have been processed, whereas Arab American applications have not been.”

Abdrabboh added that turning down Arab Americans requesting absentee ballots is a violation of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which prohibits intimidation of minority groups at the polls.

In his resignation letter, Prusiewicz cited a number of reasons for stepping down, including “the accusations”, which he denies. Prusiewicz’s letter went on to state that despite his resignation, he will continue his duties until after the August 5 primary.

In an interview with reporters on Thursday, Prusiewicz said several absentee ballots were disregarded because there had been no signatures on them. He said he had been in contact with state election officials, who told him to not process them.

Prusiewicz also told the Dearborn Press & Guide that he would not move forward with his resignation. Abdrabboh said she is concerned about the back-peddling.

ADC is calling for the attorney general and the FBI to launch a full investigation into the claims.

Paletko said the county clerk and the secretary of state have the power to conduct an investigation once they agree to take over the elections in the city.

Ohio: Muslim doctor guilty, hit and killed motorcyclist, didn’t even leave car to render aid

via Physician loses driver’s license for year in death – Toledo Blade.

Moments after a local physician was found guilty of vehicular manslaughter Thursday for striking and killing a Swanton area motorcyclist, Debbie Hilton summed up the last hours of her husband’s life.

“All Larry was doing on the morning of Aug. 30 was going to work at a job he loved on the bike he loved after kissing the wife he loved,” Mrs. Hilton said in an emotional statement to the court.

She, along with her daughter, Kristina Freeman and sons, Paul and Dan, described Lawrence J. Hilton to Toledo Municipal Judge Timothy Kuhlman as a husband and father they loved and the crushing loss they suffered the day he left for work at the University of Toledo for the last time.

“He was the rock in our family,” Mrs. Freeman said. “He was the ultimate source of comfort and reassurance. He was simply golden, but he is gone now.”

Dr. Nabil Ebraheim, 63, of 2935 Valley View Dr., Ottawa Hills, was southbound on Richards Road just before 6 a.m. that day when he stopped at the intersection of Dorr Street, then pulled out in front of Mr. Hilton, 54, who was eastbound on Dorr.

In a one-day trial before Judge Kuhlman, city prosecutors and defense attorneys called a series of police officers and accident reconstructionists to testify to the speed they estimated Mr. Hilton was traveling, whether or not he applied his front brakes, and whether Dr. Ebraheim could have seen the motorcycle — which had the right of way — coming.

Speed estimates ranged from 47 mph to 71 mph. The posted speed limit on Dorr Street at the time was 50 mph.

Defense attorney Jerry Phillips had argued Mr. Hilton forfeited the right of way because he was driving too fast for the early morning conditions, but the judge disagreed.

In rendering his guilty verdict, Judge Kuhlman said the motorcyclist’s true speed was “likely somewhere in the middle.”

“I do not believe the motorcycle was going as high as 65 or 71 mph. I don’t see that from the damage to the vehicle,” the judge said, adding that Mr. Hilton’‍s speed was not unreasonable. “In other words, a reasonable, ordinary, prudent person in Dr. Ebraheim’s position would have been able to see that motorcycle and yield to that motorcycle.”

After hearing from Mr. Hilton’s relatives, the judge suspended Dr. Ebraheim’s driver’s license for one year except for granting driving privileges for work. He ordered him to pay a $750 fine and court costs within a week, complete a defensive-driving course, and attend a victim-impact panel.

Mr. Hilton’‍s family told the court he loved his Harley-Davidson Street Glide and valued safety — never riding without a helmet or getting a speeding ticket.

Mrs. Hilton said Dr. Ebraheim had six previous traffic citations, and when her husband became his seventh, he did not even get out of his car to render aid. She said he later had his wife pick him up to take him to work.

“My husband was nothing more to you than an inconvenience, making you late for work,” she said.

 

Florida Muslim suicide bomber featured in new jihadi video

via Al-Qaeda group releases video of American suicide bomber in Syria | NOLA.com.

An al-Qaida-linked group fighting in Syria has released video of the first American to carry out a suicide attack in the country’s civil war, showing him smiling and saying he looked forward to going to heaven.

The Nusra Front released the new video late Friday showing American citizen Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha, 22, with other fighters before the May 25 attack that targeted several army positions at the same time. It said two of the other three suicide attackers in the assault in the government-held northwestern city of Idlib were from foreign countries, including one who was identified as being from the Maldives.

Abu-Salha appears smiling in the video and speaks in broken Arabic.

“I want to rest in the afterlife, in heaven. There is nothing here and the heart is not resting,” Abu-Salha says. “Heaven is better. When people die they either go to heaven or hell. There is happiness beyond explanation.”

The video, released by Nusra Front’s media arm, al-Manara al-Baydha, was posted on jihadi websites. It corresponded with Associated [with terrorists] Press reporting about the attack and Abu-Salha.

Opposition forces previously identified the American who carried out the bombing as Abu Hurayra al-Amriki and said he was a U.S. citizen. The name al-Amriki means “the American” in Arabic.

Abu-Salha grew up in Florida and attended several colleges before dropping out and moving abroad.

F16 fighter jets escort Florida bound plane back to Toronto after Muslim issues threats

via US fighter jets escort plane back to Toronto – Yahoo News.

TORONTO (AP) — Two U.S. F16 fighter jets escorted a Panama-City bound plane back to Toronto on Friday after a passenger threatened the aircraft.

Flight 772 turned around over West Virginia about 45 minutes after its 7 a.m. (1100 GMT) departure from Toronto Pearson International Airport, said Sunwing Airlines spokeswoman Janine Chapman. She said an “agitated passenger directly threatened the aircraft” but did not elaborate on the threat.

NORAD Captain Jennifer Stadnyk said the two fighter jets from Ohio flew with the plane out of U.S. airspace as a “precaution.”

Toronto police said Ali Shahi, 25, has been charged with uttering threats and endangering the safety of an aircraft. Police Const. Lilly Fitzpatrick said he’s Canadian.

Chapman said the flight, carrying 183 passengers and six crew, landed safely and no one was injured.

Chapman said the flight will depart again for Panama on Friday afternoon.

More:

Sharon Ramsay was on the flight, headed for a vacation with her two children. It was the first time they had been on a plane. Ramsay said she was crying while the arrest was taking place.

“It was extremely scary,” she said when the police stormed into the plane yelling “heads down hands up.”

“The kids were scared, I was scared.”

The plane was over West Virginia when it turned around.

There were 181 people, two infants, two pilots and four flight attendants on board.

Most passengers left on another flight for Panama City later on Friday.

 

Congress Seeks to Designate Muslim Brotherhood as Terror Group

WTF took so long? With that out of the way, there are more Muslim Brotherhood moles in the U.S. government than co-sponsors of this bill, but let’s get every elected official on record with a vote. This should be telling. via Congress Seeks to Designate Muslim Brotherhood as Terror Group | Washington Free Beacon.

Congress is moving to officially designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) and impose sanctions on any person who provides the group and its affiliates with “material support,” according to a copy of the legislation obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Read the legislation, H.R.5194.

The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2014—sponsored by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R., Minn.)—seeks to slap U.S. sanctions on the organization’s political center in Egypt as well as scores of affiliates operating across America and Europe, according to the bill.

The bill currently has seven cosponsors: Peter Roskam (R., Ill.), Trent Franks (R., Ariz.), Cynthia Lummis (R., Wyo.), Kevin Brady (R., Texas), Steve Southerland (R., Fla.), Louie Gohmert (R., Texas), and Doug LaMalfa (R., Calif.).

While the United States has designated individuals and certain affiliates of the Brotherhood in the past, this is the first time that Congress has moved to sanction the organization as a whole, including all of its member organizations.

The 19-page bill seeks to build a case against the group as one of the leading sponsors of terrorism and argues that the Brotherhood has long been a key player in orchestrating attacks across the globe via its proxies.

The legislation comes as Egyptian authorities continue to crack down on Muslim Brotherhood-backers that have wreaked havoc on Christians and other minorities since the downfall of former President Mohammed Morsi.

The bill would direct the U.S. government to level all “available sanctions” to any person in the United States “who knowingly provides material support or resources to the Muslim Brotherhood or its affiliates, associated groups, or agents.”

It also moves to block anyone affiliated with the Brotherhood from receiving a U.S. visa, which could complicate the White House’s diplomacy efforts on multiple fronts.

A senior member of the Brotherhood was hosted at the White House in February, and other representatives of the group have also gained entrance to the United States, though it remains unclear just how many due to limited documentation.

Additionally, the bill would force a complete shutdown of any Brotherhood affiliates located in the United States and permit the removal of “any alien who is a member or representative” of the group.

Much of the legislation focuses on building a case against the Brotherhood and detailing its many terrorist links.

While the organization remains headquartered in Egypt, where it has faced a violent crackdown from Egyptian authorities, the Brotherhood operates across the world.

“The Muslim Brotherhood’s motto remains to this day what it has been for decades: ‘’Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Koran is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope. Allahu-Akbar!’” the bill states, referring to primary documents from Brotherhood leaders.

Virginia: New Muslim Brotherhood Umbrella Group Holds Inaugural Banquet

This is the same Newly Formed Muslim (Brotherhood) Coalition that Seeks Greater Clout in U.S. Elections.

Participating organizations include high-profile groups that have been dogged by controversy, such as the Muslim American Society (MAS), founded by Muslim Brotherhood members, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which was named by the Justice Department in 2007 as “unindicted co-conspirators” in its case against the Holy Land Foundation in Texas, subsequently found guilty of raising money for Hamas.

The latest via the Brotherhood’s U.S. newspaper, New Umbrella Group Holds Inaugural Banquet.

The United States Council of Muslim Organization (USCMO) held its inaugural banquet at the Hilton In Crystal City, VA on June 10, 2014. The founding organizations had announced the formation of the umbrella council in March 2014; the banquet was the official introduction for the Muslim community to a platform that promises to open effective communication between Muslim organizations in America and build a national vision.

About 250 guests of the member organizations, leaders and imams of masajid, elected and government officials, dignitaries, civic and interfaith partners attended the banquet. Amongst them were Congressman Andre Carson, Congressman Keith Ellison, and Judge Hassan El Amin who also spoke on stage.

Other speakers included Dr. Osama Abu-Irshaid, Nihad Awad, Naeem Baig, Mazen Mokhtar, Khalil Meek, Imam Delawar Hussein, Dr Lynne Muhammad and W.D. Mohammed II.

It was a who’s who of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. Search the archives to read details on any of these nefarious individuals or groups.

The Mosque Cares and the Nation’s Mosque were well represented at the banquet.

The keynote address was given by Dr Ihsan Bagby, of the University of Kentucky, who took the audience on a short sojourn through the history of American Muslims starting from the early Africans who were forcibly brought by slave traders to early immigrants to the present. He traced the history of other umbrella organizations that had formed and pointed out the reasons of their demise, urging the council to learn from their mistakes.

Imam Omar Suleiman represented the younger generation of leaders and spoke about what diversity and race relations means to his generation. He expressed great hope for the growth of the council.

The latest organizations to join the council are the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California, United Muslim Relief, VA and the Islamic Center of Wheaton, IL.

Membership application forms for non-profot organizations are now available on the USCMO website. The dues for voting member annual dues are $3,500 and associate member annual dues are $1,000.
