The Muslim Day Of Prayer on Capitol Hill was attended by a small fraction of the 50,000 organizers were expecting. Their PR efforts were about as successful as their recruitment, with a schlew of conservative media outlets claiming that the organizers had advocating turning the White House into a Muslim House, made revolting statements about Jews and 9/11, and had defended convicted terrorists in a court of law.

Fortunately, the prayer day on Capitol Hill was mostly quiet. Those who came said they were there for holy — rather than political — purposes.
