Public pressure works — as Hamas-linked CAIR also well knows. An update on this story. “Hartford council cites negative feedback in deciding against Muslim prayer before meetings,” from the Associated Press, September 13 (thanks to all who sent this in):
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Officials in Connecticut’s capital city say they won’t include Muslim prayers before council meetings after getting mostly negative feedback from the public.
The reversal has led the state branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations to plan a prayer vigil Monday night at Hartford City Hall in protest….
City councilors had planned to go ahead with the Muslim prayers despite negative e-mails. The Hartford Courant reported they decided Friday to hold an interfaith moment of silence instead.
The Islamic relations council is requesting that an imam be allowed to say a Muslim prayer at the City Council’s Sept. 27 meeting.
“What we have, we hold!”
