Here’s an article about the comments Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ) said on my SiriusXM Radio show Wednesday night about Trump.

Texas Muslims quickly jumped into action to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey- opening mosques across the Houston area, handing out supplies to those in need and raising money for the victims. And while all faith groups have stepped forward, what is unique is that over the last year Muslims in Texas have been subject to a rash of hate crimes from two mosques burned down in January to threats and more. Yet in the time of need, the Muslim Americans stepped up to represent the best of being American and the best of being Muslim. Hope you check out my new Daily Beast article by clicking HERE.

Trump supporting Evangelical leader Franklin Graham who spoke at Trump’s rally Tuesday has again demonized Muslims in the most vile way with his recent Facebook post. Graham, who in the past called Islam “wicked and evil,” began his post by warning against the “spread of the dark and dangerous teachings of Islam.” And after demonizing Muslims at length, Graham concluded that Muslims need to “know” Jesus. This again proves the ignorance of Graham – as various Muslim clerics and leaders I quoted note: “To put it bluntly, you cannot even be a Muslim if you don’t both believe in and love Jesus.” Hope u check out my new Daily Beast article about Graham’s words that truly fly in the face of Jesus’s teachings.
