Messrs. Cohen, Dees and Ms. Beirich:
I understand that the Center may be holding a conference call with the Muslim Political Action Committee (MPAC) today. MPAC, which alleges it represents American Muslim community interests, has a less than salutary record when it comes to expression of doctrinal anti-Semitism. Moreover MPAC has issued anti-Semitic statements, supported Hamas and Hezbollah, repudiated moderate Muslims, and hosted a speaker with Neo-Nazi connections to speak at their events. I find it troubling that the Center would consider liaison with MPAC given the Center’s premier role as a “civil rights organization dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry,”
As a past contributor to the Center's program, my name is still on your mailing list for solicitations, I am dismayed about today's teleconference call with MPAC, especially in light of the Center's role in highlighting the threat posed by neo-Nazi, Skinhead and Aryan nation hate groups, one member of whom committed the heinous massacre at a Sikh Temple in suburban Milwaukee.
For these reasons, I urge you to not participate in a teleconference call today with MPAC, whose pedigree of hate against Jews, Christians and moderate Muslims is not something that the Center could or should support, given the Center's important mission.
