WRITES Ali from Las Vegas:

People unfamiliar with the US seem to think there are no Muslims in Las Vegas. Here is a pictorial essay from the LA Times about Muslims in Las Vegas. Here is a Muslim describing the situation in Las Vegas after 9/11. Here is a Muslim from Las Vegas — one of the leaders of the largest mosque — decrying radicalism. It was in Las Vegas that Mitt Romney’s bigotry towards Muslims was exposed. Further, Las Vegas has one of two major Muslim run free clinics for underserved areas ( see page two).

Famous Muslim personalities that have been driven down the Strip on their visits include Congressman Ellison, Sherman Jackson, the blind Quran scholar Muhammad Ayoub, and numerous others. A few years ago Las Vegas hosted a Quran conference. Updated: As I am new here, I am told that this conference occurs every year.
