Multi-religious multicultural Democratic Convention includes unindicted co-conspirator in federal probe
Ingrid Mattson is a Canadian convert to Islam and president of the Islamic Society of North America, which was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror funding case. ISNA was also named as a “friend” of the Muslim Brotherhood in the infamous May 1991 Brotherhood memorandum that spoke of Muslim organizations in the U.S. being dedicated to “a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands ... so that ... God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.”
Mattson herself has spoken out against Geert Wilder's Fitna in terms that could lead to free speech restrictions.
She has claimed, improbably, that Islam treats women as the "spiritual equals" of men -- a view which turns a blind eye to the real oppression of women that is sanctioned by Islamic law.The interfaith gathering will be held at 2:00 pm MT, Sunday, August 24 at the Wells Fargo Theater, inside the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.Bishop Charles E. Blake, Presiding Prelate of the Church of God In Christ, Inc. and pastor at the West Angeles Church of God in Christ; Dr. Ingrid Mattson, President of the Islamic Society of North America; social activist Sister Helen Prejean and Rabbi Tzvi Weinreb, Executive Vice President of the Orthodox Union, will keynote the event.
