Jewish leaders expressed outrage Friday over the State Department’s praise for, and defense of, a controversial Muslim leader who has defended terrorist groups and suggested that Israel may have been responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.H/T: Seraphic Secret.
Salam al-Marayati, founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), was picked to represent the United States government at the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe’s (OSCE) annual 10-day human rights conference, the Human Dimension Implementation Meetings (HDIM).
So, what is this? More pusillanimous pandering to resurgent Muslim militants abroad? A bid to sew up the Arab/American vote? Another poke in Netanyahu’s eye? I’m tempted to consider it as a bit of all three – and evidence of an incurable tin ear, to boot. Although the tin-ear aspect is probably not a big worry for the Obama people because of the reliable lack of curiosity that undoubtedly will be displayed by the lapdog media.
