EXCERPT: the algemeiner
One Muslim with a different view is Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD). Rather than following the USCMO’s pledge of inclusion, Jasser routinely is attacked for wanting to keep religion a personal matter, not a political one.
The USCMO “should be looked at as a circling of the wagons of the inner core of American Islamist organizations,” Jasser said Wednesday in an email to the IPT. “If they were going to start an American Islamist political party those would be the founders. Instead they deceive Americans as an innocent ‘Muslim coalition.’”
