New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has on his New York City Human Rights Commission the CAIR lawyer Omar Mohammedi. Mohammedi was appointed to the Commission in October 2002.
Mohammedi represents several organizations that are the defendants in a 9/11 lawsuit. One is the World Assembly for Muslim Youth (WAMY). About WAMY Lorenzo Vidino reports:
[…] the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), a Saudi nongovernmental organization…seeks to spread Wahhabism, the radical and intolerant Saudi interpretation of Islam, throughout the world with its literature and schools. WAMY, which falls under the umbrella of the Muslim World League, has the stated goal of “arming the Muslim youth with full confidence in the supremacy of the Islamic system over other systems.” It is the largest Muslim youth organization in the world and can boast unparalleled resources. In 1991 WAMY published a book called Tawjihat Islamiya (Islamic Views) that stated, “Teach our children to love taking revenge on the Jews and the oppressors, and teach them that our youngsters will liberate Palestine and Al-Quds [Jerusalem] when they go back to Islam and make jihad for the sake of Allah.” The sentiments in Tawjihat Islamiya are the rule rather than the exception. Many other WAMY publications are filled with strong anti-Semitic and anti-Christian rhetoric.
Omar Mohammedi was also the attorney for the Flying Imams, the six imams who were removed from a US Airways flight after passengers complained that they were acting suspiciously. Mohammedi filed a lawsuit against US Airways on their behalf, claiming discrimination. Initially he also initially filed suit against the passengers who complained, which would have had a chilling effect on anyone reporting suspicious behavior by Muslims in airports — although that part of the suit was dropped after Republicans in Congress passed legislation to protect the passengers.
Mohammedi has also served as President and General Counsel of the New York chapter of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
Contact the Mayor directly by writing, calling, faxing or e-mailing, and politely and respectfully let him know that Mohammedi must go.
