ARAB CANDIDATE SUES AFTER LOSING ENDORSEMENT OVER 9/11 COMMENTS - TOP
PATERSON, N.J. -- An Arab-American political candidate who was dumped by Passaic county Democratic leaders for comments some people interpreted as sympathetic to suicide bombers is suing to get on the ballot.
Democrats put forward Sam Merhi's name as a nominee for a county freeholder seat in the June 6 primary, but withdrew it in March amid political backlash from remarks Merhi made in 2002 about the 9/11 attacks.
Merhi, a Totowa businessman active in Democratic politics, said during a political fundraiser that he was outraged by the 9/11 attacks. When asked whether those feelings also applied to Palestinian suicide bombers in Israel, Merhi said he did not see a comparison.
House Candidate, Supporter of Anti-Semitic Myths, Funded by Terror Financier Former California Rep. Pete McCloskey, running against Rep. Richard Pombo in Tuesday's GOP primary in an effort to regain a seat in Congress, is returning a $2,100 campaign donation he received from a man tied to al-Qaeda .
The money was from M. Yaqub Mirza, a Pakistan native living in Virginia, who has been investigated by the Justice Department for allegedly helping to finance al-Qaeda and Islamic Jihad. Mirza's offices were raided by federal authorities in March 2002.
McCloskey has courted support from the Muslim community, and also has criticized Israeli foreign policy and was a personal friend of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. McCloskey is also chairman of the Council on the National Interest, a group dedicated to combating what it calls the "Israel lobby" in Washington (he should get together with Walt & Mearsheimer). In 2000, McCloskey gave a featured address to the Holocaust denial group Institute for Historical Review. In his speech, McCloskey lashed out at Jews for allegedly controlling the media and funding his defeat when he challenged Pete Wilson for U.S. Senate:

WASHINGTON -- At midday on Fridays, Muslims gather to pray in a basement room of the U.S. Capitol. Kneeling on sheets they've spread over the floor and facing east toward Mecca, they are members of the Congressional Muslim Staffers Association, about two dozen congressional aides who are part of a small but growing minority in America and in the halls of government.
At first just a prayer group, later a Muslim support group, the association is now looking outward to change what many see as woeful ignorance about Islam on Capitol Hill and beyond, said Jameel Aalim-Johnson, a black Muslim and chief of staff for Democratic Rep. Gregory Meeks of New York.
Some 100 non-Muslim congressional colleagues attended an association luncheon and the showing of part of a documentary on Islam in America. Visiting Imams from the Middle East recently met with association members.
The congressional chaplain's office consulted them about offering classes on Islam on Capitol Hill, said association member Nayyera Haq, daughter of Pakistani immigrants and spokeswoman for Rep. John Salazar, D-Colo."
Though there's no official count, the association says the number of congressional staffers who identify themselves as Muslim is little more than 20 out of some 10,000 employees at the Capitol complex.
There also is a smattering of Muslims at other Washington agencies, and some departments have consulted American Muslims for help with the counterterror war. Muslims have served as state legislators, but there is no member of Congress who identifies himself as a Muslim, said Corey Saylor, government affairs director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.(MORE)
