When Mohamed Younes selected "Religious Freedom and Tolerance" as the theme for the American Muslim Union's annual brunch, it was long before New York Rep. Peter King decided to hold hearings on "radical Islam."
Younes, president of the union, said the luncheon Sunday at the Glenpointe Marriott in Teaneck came at the right time.
"It just happened to be the right subject for the right moment," he said.
Younes, who founded the Paterson-based grass-roots organization in the hopes of serving the American Muslim community and promoting equality, told the roughly 500 attendees that religious freedom is a constitutional right.
"With the wave of hate speech we hear too much these days, I hope it does not destroy the fabric of our nation and to turn one American against the other," he said. "We need to put the doubt behind us for good in order to participate and to contribute with the well-being of America, our homeland."
Politicians, former judges and state officials including Bergen County Executive Kathleen Donovan, state Sen. Brian Stack, Sen. John Girgenti, U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman, Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli, as well as representatives from Homeland Security and the FBI sat alongside community members and religious leaders from various faiths.
Sen. Loretta Weinberg, D-Teaneck, jokingly thanked the Muslim community for welcoming a short Jewish woman with open arms.

Heh heh heh....
432 of the attendees were federal and state informants paid to attend a free luncheon.
With DAGGERS IN EACH OF THEIR HANDS, you idiot democrat...
Once Sharia is instituted, you are a dead women...they will kill you as the Ahdmanajad's of the world have all threatened....
BUT NOT IN MUSLIM COUNTRIES, RIGHT SPORT?
That picture says it all.
“500 attend Muslim tolerance luncheon”
I’m having a hard time believing there are 500 suckers on the planet who believe the words Muslim and tolerance belong in the same sentence. Well, except for, “the Muslim religion has a high tolerance for slaughtering infidels.” Or something similar.
Did they serve pork?
ZERO denouncement of the antisemitic rhetoric on American college campuses.
If you are OK with SOME hate speech from YOUR ilk, don't act all surprised when you are lumped in with the worst elements of Islamic supremacist identity movements.
No, I would not put it past any RAT to suggest this.
“....Mohamed Younes selected “Religious Freedom and Tolerance” as the theme for the American Muslim Union’s annual brunch....”
Either Younes must’ve never read the Koran or is practicing taqiyya.
Either way, the American public just eats it up.
Muslim sensitivity training for deploying troops is old hat. Everything was required of us, nothing of the muzzies.
I retired two months ago, just in time it seems. I visited a colleague today, she and my old unit have already completed `phase 1’ of gay sensitivity training in the post-DADT era. It’s so radioactive that the instructor for the classroom portion has to be a full colonel or above. Soldiers are divided up into small consciousness-raising groups. Personal religious objections are strictly verboten.
Typical question: should straight heterosexual soldiers be allowed to refuse to shower or room with those known to be homosexual?
“Hell yes!” is apparently not the correct answer.
Nope. Watch this jaw dropper:
