Farah Calls Obama's Muslim Adviser 'Toga Head'
Topic: WorldNetDaily

From an Oct. 27 appearance by WorldNetdaily's Joseph Farah on Steve Malzberg's radio show:

MAZLBERG: You talk about the -- and I read this story too and talked about it on the air -- Delia or Dalia Mogahed, the --

FARAH: I call her toga head.

MAZLBERG: Toga head, OK.

Farah does know how to be classy, doesn't he?

WND has been misrepresenting Mogahed, a member of the President's Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, claiming that she "defended Shariah" on an British TV show and is "a supporter of Islamic Shariah law." In fact, Mogahed was merely repeating polling among Muslims regarding Shariah. Further, Mogahed said on that TV show: "I'm not here to advocate for one point of view or another, I'm simply a researcher who is able to convey accurately and in a representative way the actual views of Muslims so that they're speaking for themselves rather than having others speak for them."
