Governor Snyder to speak Friday at Muslim convention

LANSING (WKZO) -- Some conservatives are taking to social media to vent their anger at Governor Rick Snyder for his scheduled speech Friday at the Islamic Society of North America convention in Detroit.

An article on the website of The Clarion Project, written by Fox News political commentator Ryan Mauro, accuses ISNA of being connected to terrorism. ISNA communications director Edgar Hopida tells MIRSNews.com that the group has no ties to the Muslim Brotherhood as the article alleges, and says they represent "mainstream Islam."

Mark Petzold of Grand Rapids, who is part of the Tea Party group River City Patriots, is calling on the governor to cancel his appearance, with a Facebook post that alleges the Muslim group is also connected to Hamas.
