One hint, She took part in President Obama's Inagaural Prayer Service.
LA TIMES claims, she’s tied to Hamas and is president of the Islamic Society of North America — the same group named by federal prosecutors as a co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation jihad-financing case. The defendants in that trial were convicted on all terror-related counts in November.

  • I don't think there is anything wrong w/ NOT hating muslims. The more we hate them, the more they hate us. It's a downward spiral going no where. I think Obama was smart in his doings. He was saying we CAN get over differences. Because if we don't we will be at war forever.

  • So what? Someone is Muslim and they are automatically a terrorist?

    I think some of you moms need to find something beter to do than read crap news online and make up "scary" questions about it.

    You can surely find plenty of things wrong in this country (and probably in your OWN LIFE) to occupy your time without going to sensationalism or propaganda for it.

    Dr. Ingrid Mattson, Ph.D. is a Canadian Muslim convert professor and activist and the current president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).

    She was born and raised in Ontario, and studied philosophy and fine arts at the University of Waterloo, Ontario. Raised as a Catholic, she ultimately abandoned religion "for good" during her teenage years,[1] but converted to Islam at the end of her undergraduate studies. She then travelled to Pakistan where she worked with Afghan refugees for a year. She earned her Ph.D. in Islamic studies from the University of Chicago in 1999.
