Muslim Day at the State Capitol

The Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-OK) will hold its second annual “Muslim Day at the Capitol” on February 26.

More than 200 Muslims are expected to attend and hold a prayer service in the Rotunda. CAIR’s headquarters is in Washington, D.C. It was founded in 1994 by three officers of the Islamic Association of Palestine. In 2007, an FBI report at the Holy Land Foundation trial listed CAIR as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee. The Muslim Brotherhood’s stated goal is to make America into a Muslim country controlled by Shariah law.

Organizers of the Muslim Day at the Capitol target youth in their efforts to persuade Americans to accept their faith and they seek to influence state lawmakers to accommodate their views.
