Islam on the March in D.C.

by Robert Knight at Townhall.com

If past media coverage is any gauge, America is about to get a giant, mushy Hallmark card on behalf of Islam on Friday, September 25. That’s the day of the Islam on Capitol Hill rally, which organizers estimate will attract 50,000 Muslims to Washington, D.C.

Hassen Abdellah, president of Dar-ul-Islam, and a main organizer, told the Washington Post that the event was inspired by President Obama’s inaugural address and his speech in Cairo, Egypt in June. The latter was where Obama noted that Islam was “first revealed” in the Middle East, thus implying divine origin. He may have also inspired some Muslims when he told journalists in Turkey in April that America “is not a Christian nation.” The event’s Website proclaims in large block letters: Our Time Has Come.

It will be instructive to compare media coverage to the virtual blackout of the Sept. 12 rally of hundreds of thousands who gathered at the Capitol to protest high taxes, the proposed health care takeover and the rest of the Obama-Pelosi leftist agenda.

But just how extensive are President Obama’s personal ties to ACORN?

The following is a timeline outlining some of the purported connections between the president and ACORN through the years:

  • 1990s: Obama meets ACORN
  • 1992: Project Vote! and training green ACORNs
  • 1993: Woods Foundation
  • 1994: Buycks-Robinson v. Citibank
  • 1995: ACORN attorney in Illinois lawsuit
  • 1996: New Party ties
  • 1997-2004: Illinois state senator
  • 2005: U.S. senator
  • 2007: From Obama’s own mouth …
  • 2008: ACORN endorses Obama
  • 2009: Criminal case against ACORN
  • Cutting ties with ACORN?

Here’s a video WND found of Obama’s pledge to let ACORN and other groups like it shape his presidency.
