US Council Of Muslim Organisations Another New Stealth Jihad Group

December 1, 2014

Announcing the formation of the US Council of Muslim Organizations

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 3/12/14) Eight* major national American Muslim organizations held a news conference today at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., to announce the formation of the US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), an umbrella group that will serve as a representative voice for Muslims as that faith community seeks to enhance its positive impact on society.

The new national council's first priority will be to build on Muslim citizenship rights by conducting a census of American Muslims to create a database that will be used to enhance civic and political participation in upcoming elections. Other priorities were also considered by the new Council to empower the American Muslim community, amplify its voice, and unify its efforts.

The founding members of the US Council of Muslim Organizations are:
Muslim American Society (MAS), Islamic Circle of North American (ICNA), Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), The Mosque Cares (Ministry of Imam W. Deen Mohammed), American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA), Muslim Ummah of North America (MUNA), and Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA).

Other organizations immediately joined the US Council include:

American Muslim Alliance (AMA) and The Mosque Foundation (Chicago)
