Former President, Jimmy Carter, 89, will be the keynote speaker at the Islamic Society of North America’s (ISNA) 51st annual convention in Detroit this weekend, the Toledo Blade confirmed Monday.
According to the Toledo Blade, the Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA, is hosting the annual event.
CBN News has reported ISNA is the nation’s largest Muslim group with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda and Hamas.
White House officials have praised the organization as a pillar of the American-Muslim community. ISNA leader, Mohamed Mageed, has also been an adviser to the Obama administration.
This year’s conference theme is “Generations Rise: Elevating Muslim-American Culture,” and speakers will offer ideas for advancing Islam in America over the next five years.
Carter will mostly discuss his latest book, “A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power,” the Blade reported.
The convention will also host other politicians, including Michigan Republican Gov. Rick Snyder and U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.).
Carter has come under criticism in the past for his critical views of Israel and U.S.-Israel relations.
In his 2006 book, “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid,” Carter accused Israel of practicing a racist state policy similar to South African Apartheid. In addition, earlier this month, the former President called Hamas, the militant Palestinian group at war with Israel, “a legitimate political actor.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
