Ingrid Mattson: Democrats, Republicans, and American Muslims

Just before the start of Ramadan, Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly managing editor Kim Lawton interviewed Ingrid Mattson, president of the Islamic Society of North America, during the Democratic National Convention in Denver. Mattson spoke about the values and expectations of American Muslim voters, their views of Senator Barack Obama, and what they hoped for from the Republican Party. She was one of the keynote speakers at the Democratic convention’s interfaith gathering.
