Interesting quote from Cornel West, who has also been accused of anti Semitic for not being afraid to be associated with the NOI (he is frequently a honored guest at events) and doesn't buy into media narratives.

We (Muslims) don't move on hatred.  In truth, these are subjects that do not occupy a great deal of time in the minds of Muslims.  However, when the issue is raised, we are taught to be thorough students. Every position is given its proper weight.
