The event will be held at the Press Club 529 14th St. NW in the Murrow Room, Washington D.C.
Our guest speakers include:
Dr. Bouthaina Shaaban: Syrian politician and currently political and media adviser to the President of Syria.
Bassam Al Hussaini: The Iraqi government liaison for the Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Forces). The Hashd al-Shaabi has taken a prominent—and many would say problematic—role in the fight against the Islamic State ISIS. Bassam has served in the office of the prime minister of Iraq since 2005 as a point man on problems that others are afraid to approach. Bassam is not a member of any political party, yet he has been the only senior advisor to serve three prime ministers—Ibrahim Jaafari, Nouri al-Maliki, and Haider al Abad
Imam Hesham Al Huseini: Imam representing the American Muslim perspective on the controversial issues within the Republican Party. He was also the founder of the Iraqi opposition movement against Saddam Hussein. He was invited in 2007 to the Democratic National Convention to speak about the views of American Muslims.
Ahmad Maki Kubba: GAFTA founder and president will be speaking about the vision, spirit, and goals of the organization. He had been a strong opponent to Saddam Hussein's regime, having gone through political imprisonment, severe torture, finally escaping a death sentence issued by the Iraqi regime in 1979. He founded the American Iraqi Counsel, leading the fight against the regime at its strongest point. He was honored by Governor Jeb Bush on March the 8th, 2005. Governor Jeb Bush stated that "people often talk broadly of the importance of the fight for liberty, Maki shows us what it means for our friends and neighbors, both here and abroad."
