Many Americans have inquired as to what Muslims are doing to help Hurricane Katrina victims. Over the Labor Day weekend, during the 42nd annual ISNA
(Islamic Society of North America) convention, a national Muslim hurricane task force

The Global Muslim community has already donated over $1 Billion to help in Katrina relief.
Actually, the total amount donated internationally by Muslims is $1,055,600,000. Imagine that! This money is going to help Americans. (Americans!
The people who voted as a majority for a government that flushes Qur'ans and invades Muslim countries. Imagine how big of a deal this is, aiding them!)
