The Zionist Organization of America and Michael Horowitz, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, said the American Muslim Council, the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the American Muslim Foundation have expressed support for militant Islamic groups and known terrorists, and have actively defended regimes that engage in religious persecution abroad.
