In 1975, Leo Rosten published his Religions of America, an exhaustive compilation of statistical information on every major and
minor group of believers in the country. In retrospect, it may seem surprising that the book contained no discussion of Islam. But this was not an oversight; for at the time Muslims in America were a statistically insignificant minority, numbering fewer than one thousand individuals.
By contrast, Islam is today the second-largest and fastest growing religion in America, with more than six million adherents.

Iran's President Ahmadinejad
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says after the formation of a Palestinian state there will be no room for Israel in the region. Ahmadinejad’s comments came after a day of pro-Palestine rallies on Friday, according to Mohabat News.
The rallies were part of an annual demonstration called Quds Day, an occasion where Iranian officials show their support for Palestine and condemn Israel. Quds is the Arabic word for Jerusalem.
