NBC Foreign Correspondent to Address Leading Anti-Israel Group

Ayman Mohyeldin

An NBC News foreign correspondent is facing criticism for agreeing to be the keynote speaker this Friday at a conference hosted by a group known for its fierce criticism of Israel and affiliation with leading anti-Israel commentators.

NBC News foreign correspondent and MSNBC anchor Ayman Mohyeldin is scheduled to be the keynote speaker Friday evening at a dinner hosted by the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), which for years has been accused of harboring an anti-Israel bias and of celebrating the Jewish state’s most vociferous critics.

Iran Holds Anti-Islamic State Cartoon Contest

One submission to the contest

Iran is hosting a contest for cartoons that ridicule the Islamic State as militias supported by Tehran expand their fight against the terrorist group in Iraq. Iran’s House of Cartoon, which is financed by the local government in Tehran, has organized the display of the submissions this week from more than 40 countries. While several of the cartoons deride the Islamic State’s (IS) leaders, others link IS to the United States and Israel despite both countries’ denunciations of the group’s attacks.
