Members of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Minnesota will host their annual convention at Dar al-Farooq Mosque. That is the Mosque which was bombed last summer, luckily no one was injured in the bombing.
Chairman Zaiver Bicott told the Pioneer Press that he has received mostly positive responses on the decision to host the event at a Mosque. Abdi Mohamed a Republican from Woodbury is also quoted in the article saying. “It’s a way of reaching out to Muslims who are culturally conservative and can benefit from conservative policies, and many others want to expand the conservative and libertarian message to all.”
On a personal level I support the plan. We need to be spreading the message of liberty to all that will listen. The Democrats are trying to add another group to their plantation, and our goal should be to educated the Muslim community. So that they can decided who they support on their own. More than likely once they hear the truth about our message they will side with us.
With that said we still need to remain vigilant of taqiya and oppose Sharia Law. Sharia Law is not compatible with our system, and should be opposed at all levels. Taqiya, which is the act of lying about the ones faith is used to hide the true intentions of the radical minority. We must be aware of the violent history and tendencies of some parts of Islam, but welcome the peaceful side with open arms.
