Muqtedar Khan Wants Muslims and Christians to Unite--Against Israel

Campus Watch has followed Muqtedar Khan's career for several years, and yesterday Jared Sorhaindo reported on a recent lecture in which Khan once again demonstrated his radicalism.

Khan, who spoke first, refused to appear on a 2007 academic panel with an IDF veteran who had served in the West Bank, yet somehow maintains a veneer of moderation. A fairly charismatic speaker, he got off the ground quickly by claiming a moral equivalence between Pat Robertson and Osama bin Laden.
