I want to come to one of the highlights of our recent two-week lecture tour in the U.S. which took place on the last day of the tour. On October 11, we were warmly hosted by a major American mosque and cultural center, called the ADAMS CENTER, which is one of the five largest mosques in the U.S. This was my second visit to this mosque during prayer, and in both cases, I was welcomed warmly and with great respect.According to its website,
ADAMS -- All Dulles Area Muslim Societyhttp://www.adamscenter.org/ -- was established in 1983... Over the past two decades it has grown to be one of the largest Muslim Community organizations in the Washington metropolitan area. It is a membership organization... and is affiliated with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)....ADAMS membership is continuously increasing and has reached about 2,200 individuals. However, it serves close to 5000 families in the area. ...ADAMS believes that service to humankind is an important part of devotion to Allah and that all Muslims are enjoined to be good neighbors. Thus, ADAMS' mission is to serve Allah through service to the Muslim community by providing religious education and social services in the best professional manner as embodied in the Quran and Sunnah. Further, ADAMS is dedicated to representing the eternal truths of Islam to the broader community through positive contributions to the society at large....ADAMS aspires to be the anchor of a model community of practicing Muslims of diverse backgrounds, democratically governed, efficiently served, relating to one another with inclusiveness and tolerance, and interacting with neighbors in an Islamic exemplary fashion.I could go on, but you get the gist. This is an incredible American religious institution, which has a vision and a mission and a highly organized structure to carry out their extensive religious and cultural program for children and adults. Moreover, it is led by Imam Mohamed Magid, who serves as president of ISNA, the Islamic Society of North America, and is one of the leading Muslim religious personalities in the USA who is regularly engaged in dialogue with Jewish religious leaders.
By the way, one of the major reasons that American Jews can now dialogue with the leaders of ISNA, derives from a speech given at an ISNA convention several years ago by my friend, Rabbi Eric Yoffie, who was then President of the Union for Reform Judaism, and the reciprocal speech by the then President of ISNA, Dr. Ingrid Matson, at a Biennial Convention of the Union for Reform Judaism...Gee, one almost hates to break it to these usefully moronic Reform Jews that ISNA is a proxy of the Muslim Brotherhood and was an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land terrorism conspiracy trial.
Update: These Reform Jews are willing participants in "the grand deception."
