D.C. Delegate at Mosque: 'What Can We Do About Irrationally Negative Views of Islam?'
by Bridget Johnson
D.C.'s delegate to Congress today asked "what can we do about the irrationally negative views of Islam and Muslims that have grown since 9/11" after a prayer service at Northern Virginia mosque Dar Al-Hijrah.
The Falls Church mosque was home to imam Anwar al-Awlaki, the U.S.-born al-Qaeda recruiter whose videos continue to inspire jihadists today. Sept. 11 hijackers Hani Hanjour and Nawaf al-Hazmi attended prayer services at the mosque, as noted in the 9/11 Commission report.
Besides D.C.'s Eleanor Holmes Norton (D), Reps. Don Beyer (D-Va.) and Betty McCollum (D-Minn.) attended Friday's prayer service to show solidarity with the local Muslim community.
