One might therefore assume that Dimant would approve of this year's parade grand marshal being a progressive Muslim; but El-Farouk Khaki, a refugee lawyer, found himself in B'nai Brith's line of fire, described in Dimant's statement as "part and parcel of the anti-Israel machinery that continues to churn out hateful and divisive propaganda." Happily, Dimant's gambit was a failure, as more than 200 QuAIA
members marched in the parade.
