Last month, a video was released by the Muslim American Society's (MAS) Media Foundation – the first episode of its new program entitled 'The Muslim American Perspective' or 'MAP.' During one of the segments, footage was shown from an anti-Israel protest depicting a young boy holding a sign bearing the MAS logo. Given MAS's ties to an international terror syndicate and given the circumstances surrounding the individual the child was with, the demonstration (along with the video) was a clear case of exploitation of children, and it cannot go ignored.
On November 13, 2006, Mahdi Bray, the Executive Director of the Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation and a former convict, announced at a demonstration against Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert that he was going to defy the law by sitting on the sidewalk in front of the White House. Whilst complaining about the American policy towards the Jewish state, standing alongside a young boy, Bray proudly said, "Because of my faith, because of my commitment, I choose to go to correct this with my hands by going over, sitting in that sidewalk, and offering myself to arrest."
Soon, Bray and the child – both holding signs with MAS logos on them and accompanied by protest goers – sat down next to one another in front of the White House gates. A circle of police vehicles surrounded the area. Over a police loudspeaker was heard, "You must leave the closed portion of the White House sidewalk now. All persons remaining on the closed portion of the White House sidewalk will be arrested."
