- Has been affiliated with radical Islamic groups
Khaled Saffuri was the founding president (and is the current president) of the Islamic Institute (a.k.a. Islamic Free Market Institute), a think tank purportedly created as a forum for Muslim Americans to express their fiscal and social political conservatism. Saffuri has been described as an “Islamists’ Front Man.” He has worked for such radical organizations as the American Muslim Council (AMC) and the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC); and he has denounced President Bush for shutting down a pseudo-charity (Holy Land Foundation) that was raising millions of dollars for Hamas.
