On July 27, 2004 Detroit News reported, "A City Council member is offering a resolution to recognize Islam and Muslim holy days, but critics questioned the timing and merit of his proposal. City Councilman Robert Constan says that his resolution, which could be considered as early as tonight by the City Council, is intended to foster unity... 'Although the resolution seems to be a decent gesture, many community members believe that it is meant to deflect attention from the push poll ’story,' the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee said."
