Islamophobia: Manufacturing the Muslim Menace
This Newton Dialogues on Peace and War program will explore the efforts of
the Federal government to isolate, harass, and intimidate American Muslims
in the name of Homeland Security. Entrapment and dramatic raids and
prosecutions present a picture of the American Muslim community as a
breeding ground for dangerous terrorists. However, the many unsuccessful
prosecutions have received scant media attention. The meeting will include
presentations by Thomas Cincotta of the National Lawyers Guild, Nancy Murray
of the Massachusetts ACLU, and Laila Murad who will address the case of
Tarek Mehanna of Sudbury, MA, a young pharmacist accused of conspiracy to
kill Americans in shopping malls.
Time: 7:30 pm on Sunday, June 26th
Place: Grace Episcopal Church, 76 Eldredge St, Newton Corner, 02458
(note that this is a new location for Newton Dialogues' meetings).
Admission is free, but contributions to Newton Dialogues will be accepted.
