President Obama has just sent Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) Director Salam Al Marayati to represent the United States at a human rights conference in Warsaw, Poland.
Shortly after 9/11, Al Marayati claimed that Israel could be responsible for the bloody attack on the New York and the Pentagon.
His organization has also lobbied the U.S. to remove Hamas and Hezbollah from the list of designated terrorist groups. In fact, MPAC has compared Hezbollah to American “freedom fighters hundreds of years ago whom the British regarded as terrorists.”
In a 1997 speech at the University of Pennsylvania, Al Marayati refused to call Hezbollah a terrorist group and claimed Hamas was simply a provider of social and educational programs. Hezbollah is responsible for the 1983 bombing of the American Marine barracks in Lebanon where hundreds were killed and wounded.
MPAC – and its leader – view Israel as being established through terrorism – and claim Israel has been “involved in the unjust and illegal usurpation of Muslim and Christian land and rights.”
According to MPAC, Israelis are “the worst terrorists in the world.”
While attending the Warsaw conference, Al Marayati told participants: “Hate speech that intends to degrade, intimidate, or incite violence against someone based on religion is harmful.” Clearly, he is calling for an international ban on free speech that is critical of Islam.
Obama has chosen a supporter of Islamic terrorism to represent America at a conference on human rights. What does this say about Obama’s view of Islam and his view of the United States?
