Florida Attorney General agrees to Muslim advisory group

Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum met behind closed doors with leaders from the Muslim Public Affairs Council in Los Angeles, angry over his having shown a film to employees during office hours, called by the council’s leaders as anti-Muslim propaganda. Both sides emerged from the meeting citing it as positive. McCollum has also agreed to form a new Muslim-American advisory group in the attorney general’s office. The council’s executive directory Salam Al-Marayati said: He didn’t apologize, but I think he understands our perspective and that’s something he didn’t have before. Last month, McCollum sent an e-mail to 500 employees urging that they attend a screening of the film _Obsession.’ The film’s subtitle is _Radical Islam’s War Against the West.
