The merger is almost official now. World Net Daily reports:

“‘In solidarity with immigration activists around the country, the Muslim Public Affairs Council as well as the Council on American-Islamic Relations - Los Angeles, the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California, the L.A. Latino Muslim Association, the Muslim American Society - Los Angeles, and the Muslim Students Association - West are calling on American Muslims to participate in a day of action on May 1, 2006,’ says a statement from the Muslim Public Affairs Council.

“‘Islam’s message is one of social justice, economic fairness, and fair treatment in the workplace. The Quran urges the proper treatment and respect of workers.’

“Choosing May 1, the day Communists worldwide celebrate the worker, activists have vowed to ‘close’ major American cities as millions of Latinos, both legal and illegal, mark what some organizers are calling ‘a day without an immigrant’ and others refer to as the ‘Great American Boycott.’”

Earlier this month, the AP reported: “Religious groups nationwide have been coordinating the protests in recent weeks, along with dozens of unions, schools and civil rights organizations. Part of their goal has been to recruit more Asian and Middle Eastern immigrants. Most protesters have been Hispanics and high school or university students.”
