The Los Angeles County Human Rights Commission recently voted to nominate Dr. Maher Hathout to receive the John Allen Buggs Humanitarian Award. Of the fourteen member board, 5 were absent at the vote, 5 abstained and ONLY FOUR of the commissioners voted---all in favor of giving the award to Dr. Hathout. No other candidate was nominated or discussed. This despite the fact the award ceremony $100/plate dinner would be held Oct 5, during the month of Ramadan when Muslims traditionally fast. Despite this, the Muslim Public Affairs Council purchased $5000 of luncheon plates and did NOT ask the commission to postpone the award.
