The Nation of Islam looks forward to an influx of members.

Detroit, Michigan - Hearing that their Islamic brothers in the Republic of Maldives may be drowning soon, due to global warming, has prompted the Nation of Islam to invite them to Detroit.

They noticed the plight of the tiny island nation in a recent news article in which the President and Cabinet held their session underwater. Underwater being where all the approximately 7 feet above sea level islands soon will be, assuming Al Gore was right.

They also noticed that the population was Islamic by law, and only numbered 300,000 or so. And it was further noticed that Detroit has enough abandoned houses and buildings to accomodate several times that number.

The imam of the Nation of Islam in Detroit thus decided to invite everyone to his city. "Heck, they think like us already. Same religion, and they primarily fish instead of work. They can do that in our great lakes."

Al Gore, inventor of the internet, has applauded this decision. "Soon, perhaps as early as next week, Maldives will be under 80 feet of water, when all of Earth starts to drown. Fortunately, at least the people can be saved - for awhile - by moving inland to Michigan."

President Obama, himself a Muslim from Kenya, has preliminarily agreed to this plan. "I know what it's like to be an immigrant, we'll make them feel right at home."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
