Michigan Republican condemned for questioning Muslims' contributions to the nation
by Ali Harb
"Oh, by the way on MUSLIM HERITAGE IN America... Have you ever been to a Muslim hospital?" sarcastically wondered Michigan politician and National Republican Committee member Dave Agema in a Facebook post.
Agema's comments drew condemnations from various groups and individuals and revealed the extent of the anti-Muslim sentiments in parts of a state that is home to the largest Muslim community in America.
Dawud Walid, the executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations in Michigan (CAIR-MI), said Agema "has a track record of being anti-Muslim."
