A Boston Islamic group sued a pro-Israel group for defamation. The Islamic Society of Boston on Monday broadened an existing suit against a local TV station and the Boston Herald to include terrorism expert Steve Emerson and the David Project, a group that earned headlines last year by alleging bias against Jewish and pro-Israel students at Columbia University. The suit alleges that the defendants sought to defame the Islamic Society to keep it from building a mosque. The Boston Globe quoted the David Project as describing the suit as “factually and legally frivolous.”
