courtesy of www.alislam.com\ \ I just happened upon Pickled Politics, a blog that compared Ahmadiyya Muslims to Mormons in that they both believe in continuing revelation. Both were founded in the 19th century by men (Joseph Smith, Mirza Ahmad) who claimed to be reformers calling both religions (Christianity, Islam) back to their original pure states. Neither have been accepted by these religions as bonified. \ \ \ Considering how the Admadiyyas have been hounded non-stop for claiming to be Muslim, chances are they simply wanted a piece of Maryland countryside they could call their own and be left in peace. The zoning appeals board there needs to get a better grip on the differences between violent and non-violent Muslims. The town’s claim that it could not sustain an annual Ahmadiyya camp-out of 5,000 to 10,000 people there is bogus. Small towns host Christian music festivals all the time that attract similar crowds. I don’t hear them complaining about being overwhelmed.\ \ \ Julia Duin, assistant national editor/religion, The Washington Times
