Pro

The interests of American Muslims are better and more immediately served by American
Muslim participation in grassroots movements and local politics rather than politics on the
state or national level.
EnglishForAliens

Con

I take the Con on this. I believe that while encouraging Muslim participation at a grass roots political level is important and will yield long term positive results, any payoff is decades away. Muslims interests are under immediate serious threat and there is a need for state and national level high profile voices to achieve results at a critical time. Muslims cannot wait a generation for political voices in America.
