While it is of unquestionable value to engage the American Muslim community and to elevate the discourse of human affairs, it seems likely that Jason Carter is wondering if we absolutely have to do that right now, and if we do, if there is anyone else available, literally anyone, who could possibly do it.
Apparently there isn’t.
From Political Insider:
The Islamic Society of North America or ISNA, the nation’s largest Muslim group, will hold its 51st annual convention in Detroit’s Cobo Center Friday through Sept. 1, and will feature former President Jimmy Carter as the keynote speaker. President Carter will talk on the subject of his latest book, “A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power,” at a luncheon Aug. 30.
This is a far from a controversial group, in fact Rick Snyder, the Republican Governor of Michigan is among the other speakers. That said, Jason and crew don’t have time for the long argument that is required and thus have to deal with he short one that isn’t so great. Maybe he can propose an Iron Dome to prevent illegal immigration to help his bonafides.
