Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, director of The American Islamic Forum for Democracy, is someone who ought to be getting more attention from the media — mainstream and otherwise. I’d never heard of him before an article today in The Washington Times that explains how his organization and a few lawyers are willing to defend airline passengers caught up in the “flying imams” lawsuit against U.S. Airways.
One thing I noticed about AIFD’s Web site: Dr. Jasser is the only one listed as a member. Makes me wonder if there are others in the organization, and if so, if they are afraid to make their identities known publicly. The professional-looking Web site implies to me that it’s more than a one-man show.
