Minnesota Public School Rented Out for Event Organized by, Featuring Proponents of Terrorism Against Israel
by Rachel Frommer
A Minnesota public high school has been rented out for an upcoming event whose organizers and speakers have expressed support for terrorism against Israel, The Algemeiner has learned.
Spring Lake Park High School will be the site of the Al-Aqsa Institute of Minnesota's "Palestine Day," which will feature a speech by activist-lawyer Lamis Deek, who has hailed terrorists who killed Jews as "martyrs" acting in "self-defense."
Deek is a board member of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation terrorism finance trial, and a co-founder of Al Awda-the Palestine Right to Return Coalition, listed in 2012 as one of the Anti-Defamation League's "Top Ten Anti-Israel Groups in America."
