There sure is not much out there on who the lucky Muslims were who got an audience with Biden in this hastily so-called “Countering Violent Extremism.” It seems that the agenda was short on planning and long on rubbing elbows with sympathizers of the terrorists. The Washington Beacon caught a tweet that gave us a good clue. Here we go:
A controversial U.S. Muslim leader who has been highly critical of Israel and said that the Jewish state should be on the “suspect list” in the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks participated on Tuesday in a White House summit on Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) that featured Vice President Joe Biden.
Salam Al-Marayati, founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), tweeted out a photo of himself at the White House with Biden and bragged, “We joined VP @JoeBiden for a discussion at the @WhiteHouse #CVESummit which kicked off today.”
The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) released a detailed fact sheet contained scores a controversial statements attributed to al-Marayati.
One of his more controversial proclamations came in the wake of 9/11, when al-Marayati pointed a finger at Israel.
“If we’re going to look at suspects [for 9/11], we should look to the groups that benefit the most from these kinds of incidents, and I think we should put the state of Israel on the suspect list because I think this diverts attention from what’s happening in the Palestinian territories so that they can go on with their aggression and occupation and apartheid policies,” he said in a radio interview shortly after the attacks in 2001, according to the Los Angeles Times.
