    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — U.S. Bank Stadium became a place of worship on Tuesday. Thousands of Muslim families from across Minnesota filled the stadium in celebration of a religious holiday. The prayer service on the field and the outdoor activities that followed were part of ‘Super Eid,’ marking a day-long event focused on self-reflection and family.

    Super Eid “rally” features roster of scary speakers with Jihadist ties. As Islamic leaders with ties to terrorism addressed them, thousands of Muslims chanted the jihadist battle cry “Allahu Akbar” at taxpayer-funded U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis yesterday as part of a huge celebration of the Muslim festival of animal sacrifice known as Eid al-Adha. One media estimate put the size of the crowd at 30,000. “Allahu Akbar” is not an innocuous phrase. It is generally the last thing victims of Muslim terrorism around the world hear as their lives are cut short at the hands of groups like Islamic...

    WASHINGTON -- A former Michigan state legislator is poised to become the first Muslim woman elected to Congress after emerging on top of a crowded Democratic primary Tuesday night to fill the seat vacated by Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.). Conyers, the sixth-longest serving member of Congress given his election in 1965, resigned in December due to sexual harassment and his use of taxpayer money to settle a harassment claim. His western Detroit district is all but a lock for Dems, as Republicans didn't put forth a candidate. Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian-American and socialist Dem in the mold of Sen. Bernie...
  • Islamic Coup: More Than 90 Muslim, Mostly Democrat, Running For Political Office In The US

    07/26/2018 5:17:36 PM PDT · by ATOMIC_PUNK · 32 replies ^ | TIM BROWN — JULY 26, 2018
    More than 90 American Muslims, nearly all of them Democrats, are running for public office across the country this year. Many are young and politically inexperienced, and most are long shots. But they represent a collective gamble: that voters are so disgusted by America’s least popular president on record that they’re willing to elect members of America’s least popular religious minority group. Although their number seems small, the candidacies mark an unprecedented rise for the nation’s diverse Muslim community that typically has been underrepresented in American politics. There are more than 3.3 million Muslims living in the United States, but...

    Current public perceptions of American Muslims are distinctly unfavorable. That’s according to multiple surveys from the Democracy Fund Voter Study Group, including the 2017 Views of the Electoral Research (VOTER) Survey, which assessed viewpoints of 5,000 Americans, all of whom had been previously surveyed in 2011, 2012 and 2016. The Democracy Fund Voter Study Group is a collaboration of nearly two dozen analysts and scholars from across the political spectrum. In the group’s new “Muslims in America: Public Perceptions in the Trump Era” report published in June, researchers found that on avera
