Today seems to be the day of the imams.
While controversy raged in New York over Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and his proposed Ground Zero mosque, Imam Hassen Bounamcha of France has invented a portable mosque. The ingenious device is made out of cardboard, and is big enough for the devoted believer to pray in, and yet can be folded up into a compact package which is light enough to be carried around.
Meanwhile, it is reported that Imam Muhammad Musri of Orlando, who met yesterday with the Rev. Terry Jones of Dove World Outreach Center to discuss Koran-burning, used Jesus as an example to persuade Rev. Jones not to burn any Korans. In other words, the imam invoked the “What Would Jesus Do?” argument. Clever fellow, that imam.
