On September 3, a group of activists representing a diverse section of New Yorkers will assemble at Sylvia’s restaurant in Harlem to denounce the bigotry of Khalid Muhammad. Led by Beth Gilinsky of the Jewish Action Alliance, the press conference will start at 10:00 a.m. at Sylvia’s (328 Lenox Avenue).
Catholic League president William Donohue will attend the press conference. He addressed the importance of the meeting today:
“It is important that New Yorkers of every demographic group speak out against the hatred that Khalid Muhammad represents. His motives and actions are that of a thug. Indeed, his repeated attacks on Jews, Catholics and whites put him in a class with the most malicious elements in American society. Muhammad has far more in common with the David Dukes of this world than with the Martin Luther Kings, and that is why it is imperative that his call for hatred be challenged by those who seek amity, not enmity.”
