MAS (and ISNA’s) Wahabbi Connection

This Labor Day weekend, the Department of Justice will fund a booth for the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) at a convention it – the DOJ – is sponsoring.

A look at ISNA’s website makes it seem to be a “moderate” Islamic organization. However, a closer look at ISNA reveals it is a [Sunni fundamentalist] Wahabbi organization which preaches Shari’a law. All of its affiliations are also Wahabbi: Council on American Relations, Muslim Student Association, etc. (Front Page Magazine, bolding mine)
