20,000 Muslims Meeting In Charlotte for Democratic National Convention

The Democratic National Convention is scheduled to start on Tuesday, September 4 at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, North Carolina.  If you look at the list of scheduled speakers, you will quickly realize that the convention is more of a liberal progressive convention than anything else.

But were you aware that just prior to the DNC in Charlotte, about 20,000 Muslims are expected to gather in Charlotte for the Friday or Jumah Prayer?  The event is being organized by the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA).  The overall event is planned for Friday, August 31 and Saturday, September 1.

Two of the key organizers of the event are Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj.  Wahhaj is the imam of a mosque in Brooklyn, New York has been tied to Muslim terrorists.  He served as a character witness for Omar Abdel Rahman, the man convicted of the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.  Some authorities believe Wahhaj may actually have been a co-conspirator in the bombing, but has not been charged with anything yet.  A number of sources report that when asked what he thought of America, Wahhaj responded: “a garbage can… filthy, filthy and sick;”  He was also quoted in 1995 as saying that it is the duty of Muslims to replace the U.S. Constitution with the Quran.

Jibril Hough, the other organizer of the Charlotte event is the leader of the Islamic Center of Charlotte which is a Sunni mosque.  The Justice Department has the owners of the Charlotte mosque, the North American Islamic Trust, listed at “unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror finance case in U.S. history.”  They are also suspected of being a front for the Muslim Brotherhood in America and Hamas.

One of the events scheduled is an Islamic gathering called the Islamic Cultural & Fun Fest.   Part of this Islamic culture gathering is a TownHall Issues Conference.  The TowhHall will cover a number of topics including anti-Sharia, Patriot Act, Islamaphobia, National Defense Authorization Act and Middle Eastern Crisis.

According to BIMA, the goal of the Muslim event is to convince the nation and world that they are a peaceful religion and that no one should fear them or their ways of life.  They also wanted to make political leaders both here and abroad aware of how they are being treated here in America.

From what I have been able to gather from reading a number of accounts of the Muslim conference is that the Democratic National Committee either approved of the event or gave their blessings to the event being held just prior to their convention.  Considering the fact that the DNC rejected having a Catholic leader present a prayer at their convention but they have given their blessing to this Jummah in Charlotte, it should reveal to everyone just what the Democratic platform really is.
