The California-based Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA) is holding a conference in Texas next month where it hopes to educate 200 imams. AMJA is an anti-American Salafist group that supports abuse of women, violent jihad and the stealthy imposition of sharia in the U.S.
AMJA's 11th Annual Imams Conference will be held on February 21-23 in Dallas, Texas with the theme, "Islamic Home Finance in the West." The subject is part of Sharia Finance, or economics that comply with sharia.
The organization says it has already had 150 imams sign up and it has a maximum capacity of 200. Imams lead mosques and Islamic centers and are seen as the local authority on the faith, so AMJA's teachings can impact thousands of Muslims in North America.
