A Point of Light

    I would have put this story on page one, not bury it in the Metro section. While the grotesque Holocaust denial conference was underway in Iran, a number of Washington D.C. area Muslim leaders attended a ceremony at the U.S. Holocaust Museum.

    The Washington Post reports:

American Muslims “believe we have to learn the lessons of history and commit ourselves: Never again,” said Imam Mohamed Magid of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society . . . “If anyone wants to make Holocaust denial an Islamic cause, we want to say to them: You cannot use our name.”

    Several survivors attended the ceremony as well, including 76-year-old Johanna Newmann, whose family was sheltered during the Nazi occupation by a Muslim family in Albania.

    It should be noted that representatives of CAIR and the Muslim Public Affairs Council also attended.
