Counter-Countering Violent Extremism

Remember that big confab held at the White House recently where they announced a pilot program in selected cities in the name of Countering Violent Extremism (CVE)?


Well, that didn't sit too well with some factions of the Muslim community even though Salaam al 
Marayati and his Muslim Public Affairs Council were participants. The Muslim Student Association West chapter, for one has come out against it. In fact, MSA-West they are advertising 5 positions for activists to work against Countering Violent Extremism (with capital cases, of course.)
