Super Eid is here

Minnesota Muslims are celebrating Eid today and tomorrow at US Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis. Harking back to the Super Bowl hosted at the stadium earlier this year, the organizers are calling the event Super Eid. Animals will be sacrificed at an undisclosed location off site in connection with the festivities.

Animal sacrifice is apparently still a thing in Islam. The Star Tribune is discreet about this in the article by Chris Bowling about the festivities. Without passing judgment, MPR is a little more blunt.

The event has its own site listing the roster of speakers. A corporation has been set up to sponsor the event. Who is paying for it? We don’t want to go there, but it can’t be a piddling expense to rent the stadium for two days.

Asad Zaman is a prominent spokesman for the event. Zaman is the executive director of the local chapter of the Muslim American Society. The MAS and Zaman are red flags.

The Muslim American Society was founded by the United States chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood. Hamas is the Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch. It shouldn’t be too difficult to get a clue. Andrew McCarthy’s The Grand Jihad provides an extremely useful guide to the world of the Muslim American Society. As the lead prosecutor of the Blind Sheikh and his friends for the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center, Andy acquired first-hand knowledge of this world.

Getting a bead on the MAS should be especially easy in Minnesota. As I say, Zaman is the executive director of MAS-MN. Zaman first came to our attention as the principal of Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. TiZA was the Islamic charter school that took public funds on the pretense that it was nonsectarian. Let me emphasize the point: TiZA took taxpayers’ money on false pretenses. Zaman was the ringleader of the now shuttered TiZA operation. To say the least, he is a publicly compromised character. In my opinion, he should be on the inside of some Minnesota prison looking out.
