Typically, Islamic Reformers Excluded From White House Conference

Hat tip Vlad Tepes and Gatestone Institute

We all knew that people like Zuhdi Jasser would be excluded from the White House conference on Countering Violent Extremism. Instead they invited known Islamists and apparently talked more about dangerous right-wing citizen "Islamophobes". The Washington Examiner has a report on who was not at the White House this past week.

Here is a full-page ad that 23 Muslim reformers took out in the NY Times on January 11, 2015 on the issue of  reclaiming Islam.

Yet, instead of listening to the above folks, the White House prefers the Muslim Public Affairs Council and the Islamic Cultural Center of Boston. Now we learn of a DHS intelligence report that targets "right-wing citizen extremists"-no doubt aided by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which recently added-then deleted Dr Ben Carson from its lists of extremists.

But it matters not to the Muslim Student Association, whose Western chapter has just issued a complete rejection of the WH conference and its participants.

I can't wait until the 2016 election.

We are having an election in 2016, aren't we?

That's what the Southern Poverty Law Center said until they took his name off the list and apologized last week.
