The top official of the United States' largest umbrella group for Muslims is leaving that job to head a new interfaith office in Washington that will work to improve relations between Muslim Americans and the federal government. Sayyid Syeed, secretary general of the Islamic Society of North America for the past 12 years, will become the national director of the Office of Interfaith and Community Relations this spring, the Islamic Society said Wednesday. The new office will be an offshoot of the Islamic Society, which tries to promote a positive image of Islam in the United States and help recent immigrants acclimate to life in America.
