The New Islamist Lobby


The United States Coalition of Muslim Organizations' (USCMO) focus on (comparatively) domestic issues is purely tactical. The very same people are involved in both sides of the equation, and lawmakers need to recognize that. The particulars of USCMO's lobbying agenda seem innocuous if you are of a progressive bent, but that very innocuousness is meant to solidify its claim to represent all American Muslims, including those who adamantly disagree with Islamism and its activist networks. Don't fall for it.
