CAIR Islamophobia Monitor: Daniel Pipes (Middle East Forum, Founder and Director)
Middle East Forum
Several groups, including CAIR, had raised concerns about credible speakers legitimizing MEF's anti-Islam propaganda at the conference.
Topics that were to be discussed at the conference implied that it was in part designed to help attendees understand how to selectively deny Americans of the Islamic faith workplace rights afforded to all U.S. citizens. A "distinct danger" the corporate world faces, according to the event announcement, is Muslim employees "making aggressive demands" such as "insisting on wearing hijabs" or praying.
The conference would have featured "experts" offering advice about how to avoid "EEOC charges" for denying Muslims' their constitutional rights.
As revealed in a recent CAIR, UC Berkeley Center for Race and Gender report, MEF funds groups know for promoting Islamophobia in the United States.
