CAIR – Federal Judge Dismisses Thomas More Law Center’s ‘Frivolous’ Lawsuit Against CAIR-MI, Executive Director

Selected Article Excerpt: 

The suit was filed after an event hosting Kamal Saleem, a renowned Islamophobe whose real name is reportedly Khodor Shami, was cancelled after Walid and People for the American Way co-authored a letter to Allegan Public Schools asking them to drop the event.

Saleem has made a number of outlandish and unproven claims about his past as an “ex-terrorist.” He told an audience inMichigan: “I came to the United States of America not to love you all. I came to be — exactly — to destroy this country as a terrorist. We crossed the Canadian border. We brought weapon caches right through cities, through Windsor.”

He also claims to have been a member of both the Palestinian Liberation Organization and the Muslim Brotherhood when he came to the U.S. in 1979.

His bizarre claim that “in my family was the Grand Wazir of Islam” prompted Calvin College history professor Douglas Howard to investigate Saleem’s background. [NOTE: The title “Grand Wazir of Islam” has never existed.] “I concluded this person is a fraud,” said Howard after his investigation into Saleem’s claims.

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation reported in 2008 that Saleem worked for Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network for 16 years and in 2006 launched Koome Ministries with the mission to “expose the true agenda of [Muslims] who would deceive our nation and the free nations of the world.”
