The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) is attempting to shut down speech with which it disagrees. Ummah News Links brings us the story:
On Tuesday, Jan 30 at 7:00 PM, three former terrorists will present "Terrorism: The World's Greatest Threat," at the University of Michigan, Rackham Auditorium, in Ann Arbor. The event is free and open to the public.
The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) has called the upcoming presentation "hateful discussion," and have asked the university to reconsider allowing the event on campus, according to the Detroit News.
But former terrorists, Walid Shoebat, Zachariah Anani and Kamal Saleem, say the ADC is attempting to stop their talk because a number of its key members, including its prominent leader, Imad Hamad, openly support Hamas and Hizballah.
Hamad was a suspected member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), the Communist faction of Palestinian terrorism responsible for countless homicide bombings and the October 2001 assassination of Israeli Tourism Minister Rehavam Zeevi.
The INS was so opposed to Hamad's presence in the United States that it fought to deport him for over two decades. But because the immigration judge chose to disregard classified evidence, he is now a U.S. citizen.
As Midwest Regional Director of the ADC, Hamad has been promoting the terrorist cause by supporting Hamas and Hizballah in media interviews.
