Islamic Democrats?

I've written already about the press picking sides in the war- seems like the Democrats aren't too far behind.

The convocation for the Democratic National Committee’s winter meeting was delivered today by Shi’ite Imam Husham Al-Husainy, of the Karbalaa Islamic Education Center in Dearborn, Michigan, and it’s amazing what this spiritual leader managed to get away with saying, in front of America’s Democrat leadership:

"Through you, God, we unite. So guide us to the right path. The path of the people you bless, not the path of the people you doom. Help us God to liberate and fill this earth with justice and peace and love and equality. And help us to stop the war and violence, and oppression and occupation."

What was that again?

The path of people you doom.

And who, pray tell, are the people Allah dooms? Well, Jews and Christians. Robert Spencer, as always, provides the background.

It sure is an interesting choice by the Democrats. And not a peep of a complaint from a single one of them yet.

UPDATE- He really is an interesting choice to attend the DNC. Debbie Schlussel has more on him:

This past summer, Al-Husainy seemed very happy leading almost-daily protests of thousands of Hezbollah supporters on the streets of Dearborn and Detroit, swarming with swastikas and anti-Semitic, anti-American signs.

Later, I watched him very much enjoy himself at an anti-Semitic rally of 3,000 Hezbollah supporters at Dearborn's Bint Jebail Cultural Center. He was among several who delivered hate-filled, anti-American rhetoric. I watched him cheer others on when they called for the hastened destruction of the Jews and when they said Americans are "diseased."
