“At the 6:19 mark of the video from the May 26 presentation, Carson tells the crowd what he believes American schools are lacking:
“America will never tap into educational innovation and ingenuity without looking at the model that we have in our madrassas, in our schools, where innovation is encouraged, where the foundation is the Quran. And that model that we are pushing in some of our schools meets the multiple needs of students.”
The Huffington Post piece fails to mention Carson is Democrat.
The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) is an offshoot of Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). ISNA is a one of the unindicted co-conspirators (along with CAIR) in the Holy Land Foundation case in 2007.
“A featured speaker is New York City Imam Siraj Wahhaj.
CBS-11 reported that “a letter from federal prosecutors to a judge in 1995 listed Wahhaj and nearly 200 others as ‘un-indicted persons who may be alleged as co-conspirators’ during the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.” They added that Wahhaj was never charged.”
“Breitbart Newsreported Wahhaj was a “character witness for the “Blind Sheik,” Omar Abdel Rahman who was convicted in 1995 of plotting to blow up the World Trade Center and other New York City landmarks.”
FYI – Wahhaj also knew Anwar al-Awlaki:
“Contrary to the ICNA’s appearance of sunshine and rainbows with holding seminars on inter-faith dialogue, feeding the poor, and “condemning” Islamic terrorism, the organization has a track record of harboring skeletons in their closets: most notably Anwar al-Awlaki giving a speech at theICNA/MAS convention in Baltimore, MD in 2002 with Siraj Wahhaj, an Imam who defended Omar Abd-al-Rahman in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.”
