They say one can tell a lot about people by the company they keep. If that adage is true, what does the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) endorsement of Occupy Wall Street and the organizations choice to conduct Friday Jummah prayers in Zuccotti Park tell us about both CAIR, and, the Occupy protesters?
An official invitation issued by CAIRs New York chapter tells members to show solidarity with the 99% by attending Friday prayers in Zuccotti Park at 1:00pm. CAIRs stated goal in hosting the prayer service at OWS is to expand the role of New York Muslims in the Occupy movement.
A sermon on social justice in Islam is slated to be delivered my Imam Aiyub Abdul Baki a supporter of the Ground Zero mosque.
Dear friends,CAIR-NY is proud to support and invite you to Friday Prayer at Occupy Wall Street this Friday, October 21st, where we will join in solidarity with the 99%. Jummah, hosted by Majlis Ash-Shura (Islamic Leadership Council of New York) is scheduled for 1pm at Zuccotti Park. A sermon on social justice in Islam will be delivered by Imam Aiyub Abdul Baki.
CAIR-NYs endorsement of Friday Prayer at Occupy Wall Street stems from a conviction that many of the issues brought into the international spotlight by Occupy Wall Street affect Muslim communities disproportionately, and it is up to us to stand up for our rights and show the world what democracy and peaceful protest look like. Look for our table at Zuccotti Park to obtain information about our current projects and to expand the role of New York Muslims in the Occupy Wall Street movement.
WHAT: Friday Prayer at Occupy Wall Street
WHEN: Friday, October 21st, at 1:00-3:30pm

Members are then directed to CAIRs Facebook Event Page for more information. 276 people have stated they will attend the prayers thus far.
The push for violent revolution in America is underway, these are times that will try men’s souls.....
All the white Dhimmi’s will fall on their faces in their own poop to pray to Allah or pot or whatever.
Praying for Carter? Hell they already have Obama, isn't that enough?
how long will it take for sharia law to become the law of the park?
Don’t they normally preach these sermons in Arabic? I guess it will be in English and Spanish for the benefit of the occupiers.
Sharia and sharia alike...
Oh my garsh! That was hysterically funny!
Two totally different philosophies, coming together to destroy what’s left of Christianity in America. Interesting times.
What will the OWS homosexuals do?
Talk about “mass confusiion”
Why do they keep calling it Zuccotti Park?
I thought it was Solyndra Park.
OWS is turning into something McCarthy was fighting.
Anyone who said McCarthy was wrong can’t be looking and Democrats and OWS with a straight face.
I have a very bad feeling about this meld.
By all means pull up some prayer rugs and start praying to your moon god.
A teenage girl in Cleveland getting raped, people getting robbed, and now these freaks show up. These Soros-funded, Obama-inspired counter-protests to the Tea Party are becoming a total embarrassment for the left, who should be trying to look more moderate if they want any chance of winning in ‘12.
It’s all fun and games until the shooting starts.

I just hope this is a goat free zone.
Well, they will have all those Moos bending over, they won't be able to help themselves....
I wouldn’t wanna be in the neighborhood when the Friday prayers let out...bad things happen.
