Radical Muslim Falsely Labels Israeli Official a War Criminal
by Joe Kaufman
When radical Muslims with ties to terrorist organizations label others "radicals" -- as happened last month when the Executive Director of The Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Los Angeles, Hussam Ayloush, falsely branded a representative from Israel "a war criminal" -- we have a problem:
The accusation took place at an event that supported eleven members of the Muslim Students Association [MAS], who had recently been charged with unlawfully disrupting a speech given in 2010 by Israel's Ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, at the University of California at Irvine.
One of the featured speakers at the event, which was hosted by Masjid Omar al-Farouk, of the Islamic Institute of Orange County (IIOC) on March 5, 2011, and entitled, "Stand with the Irvine 11: Community Town Hall and Action," was Edina Lokovic, the Director of Policy and Programming for the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC).
