Islam: An Invitation

Dear Claiborne,

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. 

"A Fascinating Look At The Political Views of American Muslims" -  Excerpt: "A new Gallup poll shows that they are more likely than Christians or Jews to object to the targeting and killing of civilians."

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:

Best regards - C
