Perspective: This article comes from a website that was "pioneered" by Sheik Qaradawi. Qaradawi is one of the Muslim Brotherhood's most infamous theologians. He has given allahs's blessing to homicide bombers, called for the destruction of America and Israel, and prayed for genocide of the Jews (to name a few things off the top of my head). And the "workshop" was sponsored by US Attorney's Office and the FBI in conjunction with Muslim Brotherhood groups and operatives in America.

"Muslims are not new to this country," said Lobna Ismail, an American Muslim who noted Muslims in America can be traced to the 1600s when Africans were enslaved, The Huntsville Times reported on Saturday, May 19.

"There was this dividing line that was suddenly put between us and our faith," she said.
The workshop, titled "Combating Islamphobia: Truths and Myths about Islam," was held last Thursday at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
Planning for the event, Ismail wanted to tackle questions and correct misunderstandings about Islam and Muslim Americans.
The workshop was attended by different organizations, including the US Department of Justice Community Relations Service, Huntsville Islamic Center, the US Attorney's Office and UAH Office of International Programs and Services.
The six-person panel included spokespeople from Huntsville and Birmingham Islamic centers, FBI agent Patrick Maley and US Attorney Joyce White Vance, all of whom answered a variety of questions, including if Americans will overcome the fear of Muslims in the US.
"I think the answer is yes," said Maley, a FBI special agent based in Birmingham. continue reading
