When the new Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC) was dedicated on June 26th, a number of local clergy, including members of the progressive rabbinate showed up for the event. They were complemented by members of the Boston Jewish community who had unwavering long term commitments to Jewish Muslim dialogue. Massachusetts Governor Derval Patrick, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and the Jewish head of the City Council either sent greetings via videos or showed up for the occasion. “Others who attended included the Dean of Harvard Divinity School, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the first Muslim elected to Congress, and local Christian and Jewish clergy.” more>>>

Thank you, Jerry Gordon.
Chelm sounds about as apt a description as I can imagine.
I am glad someone else is looking for more precise and historically-valid information on the social context of taqiyyah - in correspondence with Walid Shoebat I got something that started me looking, about two years ago. Actually there's a lot useful on Wikipedia such as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tahrif#cite_note-5.
To take a deeper and closer look at MAS, CAIR (FBI unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation conviction) or any of the Muslim groups mentioned in the article simply go the the Investigative Project and put the groups letters in the site's search window. Wow! I think Lenin would call these "foolish Jews" , "Useful Idiots".
