Muslim Students Hold Mock Senate Session at State Capitol

Dozens of Muslim high school students from around California are gathered in Sacramento this weekend for a series of workshops on leadership and political activism.

The Muslim Youth Leadership Program is sponsored by the the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a nonprofit civil liberties and advocacy organization.

Sacramento Valley Chapter Coordinator Mohammed Ali says the highlight of the conference is a mock legislative session, where students draft and debate bills on the floor of the state Senate.

“In fact,” Ali said, “from the beginning of the program to the end of the program all the students are to be called ‘senators’.”

The students are also meeting with actual members of the Senate and Assembly and learning how to get involved in political campaigns.

  1. i went to boys state in ’86. so the muslims have a segregated event?

    ““In fact,” Ali said, “from the beginning of the program to the end of the program all the students are to be called ‘senators’.”” everyone is automatically a senator? we had to run for office. and we had a house. but if you only have dozens and you limit it to muslims i guess you won’t be able to do too much.

  2. It’s part of CAIR’s plot to take over the country.

  3. Listen Anon,

    Muslims will never be able to take over the country. In fact, in the so-called golden age of Islam, Muslims were busy in hacking each other to pieces. This goes on and will go on. They have not been able to rule their own lands, how can they take over the world? When any Muslim becomes prominent/powerful, other Muslims try heart and soul to destroy him. Therefore, do not be afraid.

  4. What does Dongo stand for? If it is a real name what is its meaning? Every time I see your name I think of Quentin Taratino and his new movie Django.

  5. Criley,

    There are many names on earth with no meaning. What does America stand for? Just because of a European marauder’s name? Why Red Indians? Why West Indies? Are they anyway related to India? Why not Western China, Mesopotamia, Greece, Rome, Persia?

  6. I was joking. Some years ago, CAIR announced that it was trying to take over the country. I agree with you, muslims are full of conflict.

    Columbus thought he was on some islands outside India because they are in the same location as India if America wasn’t there.

    He had packed a suit of brown velvet and yellow satin and a letter for a maharajah from Isabella and Ferdinand.

  7. Yea we want to take over,impose sharia,opress women like myself..etc…how long will u ppl hide behind these ridiculous excuses b4 u admit the real reason for ol this crap..u simply preach freedom of speech,equality,peace,now fear to openly admit u cant stick by ur virtues coz u hate muslims..cowards!!!
    P.s n haters!!!

  8. Anon,

    Informed from your writing. But what Columbastard did is well-known; he brought some gifts and paved the greatest massacres, colonisation and plunder to date.

  9. Yes, Nill, a few years ago muslims were freely and loudly saying those very things. Now they are backtracking, telling us Islam is a great teddy bear religion and they are all peaceful wonderful folks, except for a tiny few violent extremists. Lots of people aren’t buying that story.

  10. ccc,

    i think they are talking about that right now on the radio. they are saying that they say nigger 159 times. what are you implyiing?

  11. Anon,

    None bought the story of Jews until the 1900s. Even after 1900s they were being massacred at wholesale rates. But now see, every now and then people draw blood through their vocal chords barking “Judeo-Christian values”, “Judeo-Christian civilisation”, “Judeo-Christian beliefs” and many more, though there is nothing called Judeo-Christian in fact. Those who massacred their so-called elder brethren like birds have now become great humanists and the so-called embodiments of everything good on earth as well.

    Double (I should say multiple) standard of high order indeed.

Have your say!
