An organization called Americans for Peace and Tolerance (APT) does research on Islamic supremacists and what they describe as "false moderates" – mostly in New England, where they are based.
Their president, Charles Jacobs, sent me information about Abdul Cader Asmal, who wrote a libelous and hysterical screed to the diocese of Worcester, Massachusetts demanding that they cancel my appearance at a Catholic Men's Conference coming up this March 16. I posted it in full here. Asmal turns out to be a self-proclaimed friend and supporter of a convicted jihad terrorist, Tarek Mehanna, who is currently serving 17½ years in federal prison for aiding Al Qaeda.
Boston Globe reporter Lisa Wangsness went to Asmal for comment on my appearance and, according to reports I received, exhorted him and others to contact the diocese and demand that my appearance be canceled. Asmal claimed in his diatribe to the diocese that I was a "hatemonger" -- yet he openly proclaims his friendship with and support for a convicted jihad terrorist.
