A List At CAIR

[Hat-tip to Raven]

The following is from CAIR's web site 2008 Elections: Do Your Part, which also has links to each candidate's web site:

AL - Yusuf Salaam - State Rep (Incumbent)

CA - Bill Dalati - Anaheim City Council (Challenger)

CA - Ferial Masry - State Rep (Incumbent)

IL - Rifat ‘James’ Sivisoglu- DuPage County Board, District 1 (Challenger)

IN - Andre Carson - US Representative (Challenger)

IA - Ako Abdul-Samad - State Rep (Incumbent)

MD - Saqib Ali - House of Delegates (Incumbent)

MN - Keith Ellison - US Representative (Incumbent)

MO - Talibdin El-Amin - State Rep (Incumbent)

MO - Rodney Hubbard - State Rep (Incumbent)

MO - Jamilah Nasheed - State Rep (Incumbent)

NH - Saghir “Saggy” Tahir - State Rep (Incumbent)

NJ - Mohammed Hameeduddin - Teaneck Township Council (Challenger)

VA - Sam Rasoul - US Representative (Challenger)

WI - Farheen Khan - State Rep (Challenger)
The above web site, one of CAIR's projects, also has some interesting links on the left sidebar, including "American Muslim Opinion Polls" and "Anti-Muslim Rhetoric." Also of interest there is the Thomas Jefferson Graphic at the top, with the words "The national and peacable instrument of reform, the suffrage of the people."

I find it interesting and ironic that CAIR is quoting Thomas Jefferson on an Islamic web site devoted to the political activism of Muslims, particularly if this information about Thomas Jefferson and the Koran is correct. Excerpt:
...Jefferson’s resolve to fight [the Barbary Pirates] had its beginings in his reading the Koran as the best source of the time that was all things Muslim. Jefferson knew that 18th century Americans were in danger from what we call today conservative, Wahhabi-type, radical Islam....

Keith / Sam / Andre /Bill
