Over the years Islamic apologists have pointed to Muslim celebrities in their effort to try and downplay the threat of Islam. One of them was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who has recently spoken out against “Islamophobia”. Today we learn that two NFL players have shown us where their loyalty lies, as they have joined forces with two of the country’s largest Islamic organizations. The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), and the Muslim Student Association (MSA). Just because a Muslim is a sports figure, does not mean they stand with America over Islam.

NFL Players to Headline ISNA Convention Sessions, Register Today!
(Chicago,IL July 1, 2011) Listen up all you football fans! ISNA is excited to announce that NFL brothers, Husain Abdullah of the Minnesota Vikings and Hamza Abdullah of the Arizona Cardinals, will join the ISNA Convention this weekend!
The brothers will kick-off this year’s basketball tournament on Saturday and will also speak during sessions for the Muslim Student Association (MSA) track and the main ISNA convention track throughout the weekend!
In addition to the great opportunities to meet with these all star players, you can also view a full viewing of the film, “Fordson: Faith, Fasting, and Football,” at convention during the ISNA Convention Film Festival.
“Fordson” is the very popular documentary that follows a predominately Arab-American high school football team from Dearborn, Michigan during the last ten days of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The film unearths the story of a community desperately holding onto its Islamic faith while struggling to gain acceptance in post 9-11 America.
Don’t draft Muslim.
