A Republican congressman from California criticized his Democratic challenger for attending a forum with a Muslim leader. Last year, the Muslim leader, Salam Al-Marayati, was prevented from serving on a national commission on terrorism after some Jewish groups objected to his comments on terrorism. An adviser to the Jewish challenger, Adam Schiff, called the accusation preposterous. Marayati said the congressman, Rep. James Rogan, had attended several events with him during the past five years.
