"Muslims also angry over GOP "Anti-Sharia" party plank..."
Considered by many to be the most powerful Catholic cleric in the United States, New York's Timothy Cardinal Dolan has already accepted the invitation by the Republican National Convention to deliver the Benediction next week at the GOP gathering in Florida.
The Cardinal "tipped off" the Democrats "a few weeks ago" to inform them he had accepted the Republican invitation, and was thusly offering the same to the Democrats.
As reported by The New York Post:
"President Obama turned down a chance to have Timothy Cardinal Dolan deliver a prayer at the Democratic National Convention after Dolan told Democrats he would be 'grateful' to deliver a blessing in Charlotte."
"He wanted to make sure that they knew that this was not a partisan act on his part and that he would be just as happy and grateful to accept an invitation from the Democrats as he would to have received one from the Republicans."According to The Post, Cardinal Dolan spokesman Joseph Zwilling said during an interview:
According to Zwilling, "He has not been contacted by them” since."
Bill Donohue of the Catholic League stated:
"The Republicans are smart enough to get the 'pope of America,' and the Democrats are stupid enough not to invite him."
The DNC And 20,000 Muslims...
Reporter Bob Taylor of The Washington Times is reporting that the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC, will feature a program called the "Jumah at the DNC."
The three-day Muslim prayer-fest is expected to draw an estimated 20,000 Muslims to the Dem convention site.
The WashTimes is also reporting that "Siraj Wahhaj, who will be the 'Grand Imam' for the gathering... and the co-leader of the Charlotte event, Jibril Hough, are both heavily involved in the separatist American Islamist movement."
As Taylor wrote:
"There are two forms of lying that are permitted in Islam under certain circumstances, taqiyya and kitman.
Such circumstances are typically those that advance the cause of Islam - in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.
Basically, taqiyya is lying by saying something that isn't true.
Charlotte’s jumah will be a prime example of taqiyya.
It will use the convention as cover for 'town hall' activities designed to create awareness of the victimization of Muslims and Islamophobia.
The Obama Administration's pandering to Muslims will add considerable strength to the gathering and its agenda."
Is The GOP Walking The Plank...?
Muslim organizations within the United States are also angered over what they view as "Islamophobia" from the Republicans, as reported by the Sacrament Bee.
As seen in the video, left, the GOP Platform Committee has accepted a so-called plank (official stance) against American courts accepting foreign law, as proffered by Kansas delegate, Kris Kobach:
"I'm not aware of any court that's actually accepted the argument, but in cases involving either spousal abuse or assault or other crimes against persons, sometimes defenses are raised that are based in Sharia Law.
We actually put a provision to this effect in Kansas statute this year and I think it's important to say that foreign sources of law should not be used as part of common law decisions or statutory interpretation by judges in the lower state courts as well."
