The mood was cautiously civil last week as area Muslims attended a gathering for what they feared was a hate group.
Des Plaines for ACT!, a chapter of the national ACT! For America, has been meeting at the Des Plaines Public Library bi-monthly since last fall. ACT! works to curb Islamic extremists by speaking out within communities. The group has drawn concern from organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center, which labels ACT! as a hate group.
Local organizers have said ACT! is trying to inform their communities about the threat posed by radicals, not everyday Muslims.
Still, the group raised concerns within Des Plaines Islamic community after distributing fliers in Metropolitan Square early last week. The fliers promoted the screening of a controversial speech about the dangers of Islam by Dutch politician Geert Wilders. That screening was part of ACT!s meeting at the library Saturday, May 17.
Leaders from the Des Plaines Islamic Center organized members and attended the meeting. People began showing up around noon, about an hour before the start time. ACT!s members locked the room while they set up chairs and tables and began allowing visitors in just before 1 p.m.
Members of Islamic Community Center told a Journal & Topics reporter they were interested to see what the ACT! members had to say. By the time the event started the majority of the crowd was Muslim visitors.

Some "hate group."
these dopes would far prefer ACT for Alluh
The thing to realize here is that ACT! For America and Brigitte Gabriel actually back and support Muslims like Dr. Zuhdi Jasser and his organization of Muslims who fight against the Islamists and extremists.
ACT! For America is no hate group when they fully support Muslims like Dr. Zuhdi Jasser.
If you know nothing about any issue, and the SPLC is on one side of the issue, you are in safe territory, and 100% right, if you are on the opposite side. Whatever they are for, I am against.
A hate group?
Has ACT been publicly calling for the murder of jews? Beating their wives and murdering their daughters for failing to follow religious dogma? Calling for death to all who don’t follow their faith?
I recommend that they frisk Muslim visitors for weapons and explosives before letting them in.
Better be careful than sorry.
