Muslims & the Democratic Party

Jewish World Review:
The number of Muslim delegates to this year's Democratic National Convention has grown by 60 percent.

In this context, it should be noted that the Democratic National Convention had the Muslim imam, Yahya Hendi, give the benediction Tuesday night.  (See Dhimmi Watch.)

According to the 9/11 Commission public hearings, Hendi has testified as a character witness for Sami al Arian.   Some of you will remember that al Arian, a tenured professor at the University of South Florida, was arrested by the FBI last year on a 50-count, 121-page,  indictment for heading Palestinian Islamic Jihad in North America.  

The Democrats are unquestionably more inclusive than the Republicans.   I can't imagine that George Bush would have a terror-related imam give the benediction at his convention, but we'll see, won't we?
