Democrats Embrace Siraj Wahhaj: Supporter of Cop-Killer, Al Qaeda and Hamas
by Laura L. Rubenfeld
In just a few days, the Democratic National Convention "kick off events" week will include its first ever "Jumah (Arabic for gathering) at the DNC" – three Islamic-centered events beginning with a Friday afternoon prayer and sermon, an evening Islamic banquet and an all-day Islamic festival.
Many of the individuals scheduled to speak during the DNC week have extremely spurious backgrounds, including, astonishingly, support for Al Qaeda and for the U.S. State Department-designated terrorist organization, Hamas.
The celebrity Imam or "Grand Imam" slated for the event is Imam Siraj Wahhaj (pictured on the top far-left of the picture above).
