|Dear sisters and brothers,|
>A dangerous strategy is emerging among North America's Zionist leadership
>after the release of a new study in the US estimated the population of
>Muslims at 7 million outnumbering Jews who are 6 million. Worried that
>these increased numbers may help the Arab cause in the US, the Zionists
>seem to be working on creating division between non-Arab Muslims and their
>Arab American cousins.
>In expressing alarm at the growing numbers of Muslims in US, the Jewish
>Telegraphic Agency comforts its readers by stating, "American Muslims are
>not all Arab or even, necessarily, sympathetic to their co-religionists in
>the Middle East." It reports to its Jewish readers that in the new study,
>"33 percent of mosque members are of South Asian (Pakistani/Indian) origin,
>30 percent are Black and 25 percent are of Arab descent."
>Jonathan Sarna, professor of American Jewish history at Brandeis University
>is quoted by JTA as saying the Jewish community should "single out the
>South Asian community and make an effort to ally with them in the hopes
>that this will later have positive implications for our relationships with
>other elements within the Muslim population in this country."
>Decoded, this signifies an attempt to keep Pakistani/Indian Muslims away
>from supporting their Palestinian and Arab brethren in the US.
>Murray Friedman, director of the Jewish history center at Temple
>University, calms the fears of the Israeli supporters in the US. He says,
>"The Jewish community ought to be a bit more relaxed with regard to the
>growing number of Muslims. Muslims come in different packages. They're not
>all Arab and they're not all devotees of the Palestinians."
>We have seen evidence of this work here in Toronto. The Islamic Society of
>North America - ISNA has developed a cozy relationship with the Canadian
>Jewish Congress; a Somali Muslim reporter of the Toronto Star who has been

>The problem is two-fold. The Zionist lobby is actively pursuing the
>non-Arab Muslims while the Arab leadership is bending over backwards to
>avoid working with non-Arab Muslim groups. These two processes working
>together spell our doom.
>Please wake up. Read and reflect.

Is this true about ISNA? I hope not, although i wouldn't be surprised.
