An upcoming Los Angeles conference designed to combat Islamic "radicalization" features a pair of "radical" Muslim leaders who have openly supported terrorists and advised American Muslims against cooperating with law enforcement.

The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department, in coordination with the FBI and LAPD, will host the two-day event next week at a resort in Pismo Beach, Calif. It's slated as the "Radicalization Conference 2010: Radicalization and Homegrown Violent Extremism."

The controversial guest Muslim speakers, who were invited to lecture law-enforcement officials about countering homegrown terrorism, are leaders of the Muslim Public Affairs Council. Los Angeles-based MPAC says it is a "moderate" group, but critics charge it is a "propaganda arm" for the radical Muslim Brotherhood in America.

According to the conference agenda, the MPAC officials are scheduled to head a police workshop entitled, "Muslim American Perspective on Radicalization." One of them – MPAC programming director Edina Lekovic – in 1999 published a pro-jihad organ praising Osama bin Laden as a "freedom fighter" and urging Muslims to "defend our brother," while the other – MPAC president Salam al-Marayati – was kicked off a 1999 terrorism commission for espousing radical views.


Al-Marayati was denied a leadership post on the National Commission on Terrorism by then-House Democratic Leader Richard Gephardt when it came to light that al-Marayati claimed that Hezbollah was a legitimate organization and had the right to attack Israel.

On 9/11, he blamed Jews for the attacks, telling a Los Angeles radio station, "I think we should put the state of Israel on the suspect list."

Al-Marayati has defended several terrorist suspects, even after their convictions, and has been an outspoken critic of FBI investigations in the Muslim community, claiming agents use "McCarthy-era tactics."

He has advised Muslims against informing on their brothers.
