Over 20,000 people are expected to attend Muslim prayers before the start of the Democratic National Convention on Friday in Charlotte, NC.

Jibril Hough, a spokesman for the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), said Friday's prayers are to hold the political parties accountable, and to "anesthetize" Americans who harbor anti-Islamic opinions.

There is no word on if President Obama -- who was raised Muslim -- will speak at the prayer meeting which will "target the Patriot Act, the NYPD, the National Defense Authorization Act, and anti-Shariah sentiment," according to The Blaze.

The Blaze points out that a request by a Catholic Cardinal to say a prayer at the 2012 Democratic National Convention was denied. But the DNC is partnering with the Bureau of Muslim Affairs for Friday's 2-hour Muslim prayer event.

Siraj Wahhaj, the “Grand Imam” for Jumah at the DNC, is quoted as saying, “If only Muslims were clever politically, they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a caliphate.”

He continued: “Take my word. If 6-8 million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us.”

      When people (Republicans) bring up the fact about Obama being Muslim, it makes it seem that's a bad thing.

      @Zoe, IKR. I think that's because alot of Repubs look at them as "terrorist" and that's a huge problem.

      I had no clue his white family raised him as Muslim but let's say this bs is true...there are plenty of people that are raised one religion but grow up to practice another...so your statement is moot...oh and for your information not all Africans are Muslim just in case that's where you get that from

      *********************************

      i did the same thing with my dad during katrina. my brother stayed behind because my dad would NOT leave. they were missing for days! they lived on the porch, finally got picked up by a boat, dropped off on the interstate, waded to the convention center, and got a bus to the astrodome. my bro was mad AF because my dad stayed pissy drunk the entire time (somebody broke into the corner store) and he had to basically carry him around. they never went back to NOLA. i can't go through that shyt again. when a loved one is missing it's like a thousand cement bricks on your back.

      I can't speak for all but its not a "Republican " thing its an ignorance thing. I am a republican ( who as a woman refuses to vote for Romney )and I do not care if the president is muslim or was muslim. But I must have missed where it was said he was in fact raised muslim, and even if he was so what I was raised catholic but I am no longer and don't feel I have to explain that to anyone and like most don't think the President should either. I wouldn't care if he was still a muslim.

    • Lucky704

      Hello everyone, I had to jump in on this one. I spent most of my teenage years living as a Muslim and praying to a GOD I did not believe in only because my mother was with a man that practiced that religion at that time. I did not and do not believe in nothing but my FATHER GOD and HIS son JESUS. You have to come better than that, sometimes we come in a way that is not our choosing and we are a certain age we find that those beliefs and practices are not our own. I support :obama: and stood in line for 6 ours so I can attend the DNC 2012. I am thankful for all of my life learned lessons and respect the Muslim community as well. No matter what we are all children of GOD, no matter what you rep at this time.
