U.S. sponsors Islamic convention

The Justice Department is co-sponsoring a convention held by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) — an unindicted co-conspirator in an ongoing federal terrorist funding case — a move that is raising concerns among the Justice's rank and file.

Justice lawyers have objected to the affiliation with ISNA, fearing it will undermine the case against the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development in Dallas.

However, the Justice Department responded by saying that the co-sponsorship was necessary in this day and age of multi-culture enlightenment, and that for the fun-and-games section of the convention, Beheading Booths instead of Dunking Tanks would be optional.
