MARRIOTT RACKED BY TERRORIST ATTACKS
AAH QUESTIONS WHY HOTEL WOULD SNUB COUNTER-TERROR GROUP AND WELCOME ALLEGED TERROR FRONT
(Coral Springs, FL) Since the Al-Qaeda operation targeting America in September of 2001, the Marriott Corporation has been greatly affected by radical Islamic terrorism.
The affects include:
After all of these atrocities, the Marriott had decided to allow the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) -- a group that has had numerous officials connected to terrorist activity -- to host their annual banquet in one of its hotels. They also allowed an individual to speak at the event, who had been called, by U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White, a potential unindicted coconspirator in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. The banquet took place yesterday, December 3rd, at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia.
To compound the situation, the Marriott had condoned the rejection by one of its hotels -- the Marriott Georgetown University Conference Hotel -- of a counter-terror group, the People's Truth Forum, from holding a symposium at the hotel. One of the reasons the Marriott gave for this was that it was "based upon business considerations."
Joe Kaufman, the Chairman of Americans Against Hate, stated, "We
do not understand how a hotel chain that has gone through so much, with
regard to the horrors of terrorism, could embrace a group that has had
so many noted ties to terrorism and an individual that was allegedly tied
to a terrorist bombing. This, while rejecting an organization that is
actively working to fight terrorism! We understand the bottom line, but
with all that the Marriott has suffered, doesn't this subject warrant
just doing the right thing? We call on the Marriott to never allow any
group or individual that has even borderline connections to terrorism
into one of its hotels again."
