Muslim Organization Sues Canada's Prime Minister for Libel


A Muslim organization on Monday sued Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his spokesman for libel for linking the group to Hamas, which is banned as a terrorist organization in Canada, AFP reported.

The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM), which filed the claim in Ontario Superior Court, had asked the prime minister's office in January to bar a rabbi accused of links to an American anti-Muslim "hate group" from Harper's first official trip to Israel.
