    Durán, Durán Karen Yourish, New York COURTESY AJC. Khalid Durán thought his book on Islam for Jews would improve relations between the faiths. Instead, it has brought a death threat.Khalid Durán is a marked man.

Writing a book subtitled "An Introduction to Islam for Jews" that doesn't quite toe the party line.Durán, a German citizen with a PhD in Islamic studies, now living in suburban Washington, is a liberal Muslim scholar who received his...

    In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful CAIR ACTION ALERT #335 OPPOSE SANCTIONS BILL THAT HARMS AMERICANS AND SYRIANS (WASHINGTON, D.C., 6/20/02) - CAIR is urging on Muslims and other people of conscience to take a few minutes and contact their elected representatives in opposition to a new counterproductive bill being considered by Congress, the "Syria Accountability Act of 2002."

    In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE PRO-ISRAEL LOBBY BUYS ALABAMA HOUSE SEAT SAY MUSLIMS (WASHINGTON, D.C., 6/26/02) A prominent national Islamic advocacy group is calling Rep. Earl Hilliard's (D-AL) loss Tuesday in a runoff primary in Alabama's 7th Congressional District a "defeat for democracy," an insult to African-Americans and a victory for pro-Israel extremists. (In the heavily Democratic district, the winner of the primary will almost certainly be elected to the House.) Hilliard's opponent, Artur Davis, had been heavily backed by out-of-state supporters of Israel who opposed the five-term incumbent's criticism of American policies...
