Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) President Morton A. Klein is calling for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) to fire Los Angeles chapter director Hussam Ayloush after he advocated for the "termination" of Israel.
"Iran's regime calling Israel a 'cancerous tumor' is like the pot calling the kettle black. All the people of that region will be better off once both murderous regimes are terminated," Ayloush tweeted Sunday.
The Investigative Project on Terrorism first reported on Ayloush's statement. The ZOA statement cites Monday's IPT article, which also details Ayloush's record of incitement. Klein also called for the Democratic Party to revoke Ayloush's delegate credentials.
Based on his tweet, one might assume Ayloush has an equal disdain for the Islamic Republic of Iran and Israel. However, Counter-Islamist Grid Director Kyle Shideler points out that CAIR previously organized a dinner for ex-Iranian president Mohammad Khatami.
