Thanks for sending the invitation to this Saturday's "Open Mosque" visitation.
I am interested. Are you going?
Did you know that Florida's Islamic-American community voted overwhelming for George W. Bush in the 2000 presidential election?
Keeping in mind that "everything" depends on how "you do the accounting," it is a "fact" that if only half Florida's Muslims had voted for Bush - rather than the 80% plus who did - Al Gore would have won that election hands down, no questions asked.
At least until the Iraq War, American Muslims - in keeping with their conservative values - cast consistently conservative ballots.

If you are interested, Triangle area Mosques are opening their doors this Saturday so that we who are not Muslim may learn more about Muslim-Americans, their beliefs, etc. I am pretty sure it will be educational and I gather there's also food.
Here's a website:
