Musharraf Speaks to AJC

Pakastani Perez Musharraf will be speaking to the American Jewish Congress on September 17, 2005 in NYC.

I found this to be an interesting choice for a guest on several fronts. One he has been calling for moderation in the Arab/Islamic world. Which really isn't all that suprising when one realizes that he is a likely target for assination by extremists for both his stances in side his country and his 'alliance' with the US in the 'War on Terror.'

The second reason I found this interesting is that it is occurring in NYC so close to the anniversary of 9/11/01. This just seems like it might be a 'dangerous' time to be wondering around NYC (or any major city in the US, as a 'high-profile' Islamic leader.) as there are a lot of crazy people in this country who may decide this is a good time/target to make a point to the extremists.
