The Middle East Forum invites the public to a special panel: 


Countering “Muslim Advocacy Day”: the Islamist Invasion of Washington, D.C. 
 
Countering Islamism Panel
 
 
Featured (left to right): Daniel Pipes, Sam Westrop, and Cynthia Farahat. More speakers to be announced.


Hundreds of Muslim delegates will soon descend on Washington, D.C. for Muslim Advocacy Day, to “make their voices heard.” Is this an innocuous event connecting main street Muslims to their representatives? Hardly.
 
Our experts will present new research exposing the nefarious groups and intentions behind this growing annual event, billed this year as “combating the Islamophobic rhetoric and the anti-Muslim policies being put into place by President Trump.”
 
Some organizers of Muslim Advocacy Day are tied to non-violent Islamism – internal forces exploiting the freedoms of Western democracy to undermine from within toward the spread of Shari’a as governing law, which is incompatible with Western democracy.
 
Other organizers are tied to outright jihadist terrorism. Pushed aside are voices of moderate Muslims.
Join us as we analyze this event and examine the larger issue of radical Islam – essential intelligence for members of Congress and their staffs, policy-makers and policy-shapers.
 
The Middle East Forum – where, according to Al-Jazeera, “Trump’s anti-Muslim policies come from” –  presents a panel moderated by Daniel Pipes, its president, a veteran of five presidential administrations and an expert on Islamic history, and featuring: (i) Islamist Watch director Sam Westrop, who has advised the U.K. and U.S. governments on Islamism and terrorism; and (ii) Middle East Forum fellow Cynthia Farahat, an Egyptian dissident who has spent her life opposing radical Islam.
