As noted at FPMag:
Muslims had around 5 percent of the delegates in a Democratic Party convention for a country where they [Muslims] aren’t even 1 percent of the population. Maybe in the next election they can quadruple it again and have 20 percent of the delegates.
Michigan had 203 delegates according to CNN. Of all those folks available, Michigan Democrats chose their one and only Muslim delegate to nominate Barack Hussein Obama – coincidentally born to a Muslim father.

DETROIT (AP) — The Michigan Legislature’s only Muslim member has announced the state’s votes to nominate Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination to another term as president.
State Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Detroit took the microphone Thursday morning at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.
Tlaib tells The Detroit News (http://bit.ly/Q2t8Tb ) that “it was unbelievable to be standing up there as the child of immigrants to be able to nominate the president of the United States.”
Tlaib is running for a third term in the Legislature. The mother of two is one of 14 children of Palestinian immigrants and the first in her family to finish high school.
The Michigan Legislature’s first known Muslim member was ex-state Rep. James Karoub, who served three terms in the 1960s.
Remember, Hamas-linked CAIR (member pictured with Tlaib above) claimed there were 100 Muslim delegates at the DNC where DNC delegates vociferously and repeatedly rejected God (not Allah but God) as part of the Democratic party platform. They also rejected recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Watch the video.
Two very adamant and unhappy Muslim DNC delegates who voted no to accepting God and Jerusalem.
