15,000 Muslims expected in CT to fight for sharia Memorial Day weekend

We’ve covered this event almost exclusively several years running (links at end) so it is glad to see others now giving it wider publicity. First from ICNA’s own website:

Muslims to gather to combat anti-Shariah movement (i.e., to fight for sharia in the U.S. and the world)

Wednesday, May 23, 2012 – Some 15,000 Muslims are expected at this weekend’s 37th annual convention of the Islamic Circle of North America in Hartford, where the theme of “Defending Religious Freedom: Understanding Shariah” reflects the worry that anti-Muslim activists are fanning fear of Islamic law to marginalize U.S. Muslims.

Some of the best-known Muslims in America will be speaking, including Rep. Andre Carson, a Democratic Muslim from Indiana; Islamic Society of North America President Imam Mohamed Magid; and Imam Siraj Wahaj of Brooklyn, who in 1991 became the first Muslim to give an Islamic invocation to the U.S. House of Representatives.

We are the anti-sharia movement. They are the pro-sharia movement.

Siraj Wahaj is an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Much more on him in our archives including audio imploring Muslims in the U.S. to wage jihad.

Full program here including rewriting history, how to push sharia, how to push Islam on unsuspecting Americans, and Hygiene & Sexuality of a Muslim Woman. Speaker list here, littered with Hamas-linked CAIR alumni, NYPD infiltrator, Congressional infiltrator, and State Department pals. There are likely many others not listed for obvious reasons.

American Muslims who are disheartened by increasingly fervent attacks on sharia law are planning to assemble en masse this weekend to protest against what they fear are attempts to discriminate against their way of life. This weekend, 15,000 believers are expected to descent upon Hartford, Connecticut, for the 37th annual Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) convention.

The Muslim American Society-sponsored conference, entitled, “Defending Religious Freedom: Understanding Shariah,” will take place from May 26-28. According to Religion News Service, the event is the second largest annual event for Muslims in the U.S., behind the Islamic Society of North America’s annual gathering (the latter event attracts 30,000+ people).

The conference will focus upon educating Muslims to better understand sharia and how it applies to their lives, among other related sentiment. An advertisement on the conference’s web site reads:

There are more reasons than ever to attend the ICNA-MAS 37th Annual Convention being held May 26 – 28, 2012 (Memorial day weekend) at the Hartford Convention Center in Hartford, Connecticut. This year’s theme is “Defending Religious Freedom – Understanding Shariah” which is an extension of our 1 year long campaign. It is an educational initiative that hopes to “help the public understand Shariah and counter the rise of Islamophobia in America. The campaign aims to further shift focus from the misnomer “Shariah law” and draw attention to what really is at stake here—your religious freedom.

  1. Someone needs to explain two things to sharia proponents: American law is based on the Constitution and absolutely nothing else.

    If you wish to live under sharia law, America is not the place for you.

    • Considering Muslims have been successful in implementing Sharia in every other western country so far, it’s reasonable to think they’ll be just as successful here in the U.S.

      We’ll have official government-endorsed, Supreme Court approved Sharia courts here in less than a decade, don’t you worry.

    • Agree, We can not have laws here that allow killing your daughters if they arn’t what you want them to be. killing your wife or disfiguring her, having sex with children and all the rest of sharia law. They are welcome to have their law but not in our country. We have the constitution.

  2. “Defending religious freeedom, sharia?” Now there’s an oxymoron! Same old story, if these relgious nutters want sharia, there’s plenty of it where they came from. What are they doing in America? (As if I didn’t know)

  3. This would be a good time to ROUND UP 15,000 NUT JOBS and put them in a FEMA CAMP AS TERRIORST till they could be shipped back to a 7th Century COUNTRY. LOCK AND LOAD.

  4. Why don’t they gather on 9/11? isn’t that their day of remembering their fallen heroes. Instead they have to use our memorial day holiday to push their evil ideology and sharia law. To all muslims out there, either submit to the constitution or get the hell out. As an America I will never submit to islam or your filthy koran and sharia law.

  5. NO SHARIAH IN AMERICA. PERIOD. We have OUR OWN laws, based on OUR OWN Constitution. WE DO NOT WANT ISLAMIC LAW. Thank you. Have a nice day.

  6. How dare they do this on Memorial Day,a very sacred day. I am a disabled Desert Storm Veteran and find this disgusting. We should have done away with them in 1991

    • They do it on all major holidays celebrated by non-Muslims: Christmas, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Easter, etc. – search our archives

      • Yes they have a fondness for mocking our holidays, especially the religious ones. It’s much the same as their fondness for taking over Christian churches & turning them into mosques & their penchant for building mosques on all religious structures in conquered countries. It’s their version of the middle finger.

  7. Consider the insanity that is taking place. Foreigners (not indigenous Americans) are trying to force their “religious” law into your courts. They make it sound benign and acceptable because of “religious” freedom, but like everything about islam this is just the thin edge of the wedge. The ultimate goal is to have EVERYONE ruled by shariah (islamic law) and that includes non-muslims and it means EVERY facet of your life, behavior & thinking……and there are actually fools in the USA who not only have been duped but joyfully support this sedition.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
