Efforts to keep Muslim leader from attending anti-terrorism seminar fall short
by Barbara Hoberock
Efforts failed on Friday to ban the head of a pro-Islamic group from attending an anti-terrorism seminar in the Capitol.
Adam Soltani, executive director of the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, and others were able to watch the seminar from the House gallery, despite being told they could not attend the event being held in the chamber.
Soltani on Friday attempted to register and pay to attend the seminar, sponsored by the Oklahoma Counterterrorism Caucus, but was told the seminar was full.
