Advertisements for a Muslim event celebrating U.S. President Barak Obama’s Inauguration show a minaret superimposed over the White House. A Facebook flier for the event features the same minaret over the American flag.
The Muslim American Inaugural Benefit Gala is sponsored, among others, by CAIR (the Council on American Islamic Relations) and ISNA (Islamic Society of North America). CAIR and ISNA were both unindicted co-conspirators in the largest terror-funding trial in America.
The promotional material gala says the following about the purpose of the event: “The Muslim American community has been consistently increasing its civic participation in recent years as demonstrated by increased voter turnout and the election of numerous Muslim federal, state and local office holders.”
Considering that a number of the event’s sponsors are Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups, the purpose fits with the Muslim Brotherhood’s stated strategy of working to gradually transform Western democracies to conform with sharia (Islamic law).
