Candidate R learned that his opponent (Candidate D) would be visiting "a Muslim event," whereupon Candidate R was quoted as saying, "I'd love to get a picture of that!"

Candidate D was giving a stump speech at a restaurant, but for some reason it was assumed he was visiting a mosque or I dunno, maybe reading from the Koran?

Now, why do you think Candidate R wanted pictures of that?

(Note: Candidate D tweeted a picture of himself at the event, in case you decide to misinterpret the news as wanting to "hide" his participation.)

I asked about taking pics when I toured some mosques a few years ago, but was told that it wasn't appropriate. Missed capturing some lovely frescoes.

I have not have had any problems taking pictures inside the mosques, neither here, nor in Turkey, with the exception of the actual prayer services.
Oh, and the time during the prayer I was not in line with all other prostrating bodies...
