AMGPJ characterized the U.S. as a nation rife with anti-Muslim bigotry and discrimination. In 1998, for instance, the organization produced documentaries and videos “on the suffering of the Iraqi people due to eight years of economic sanctions”—placing blame for that suffering almost entirely upon the United States. And on a number of occasions, AMGPJ members joined other peace and interfaith organizations on fact-finding and humanitarian missions to the Persian Gulf region.
AMGPJ's outreach coordinator was Raeed N. Tayeh, who made headlines in 2001 when, while serving as a congressional staffer for Rep. Cynthia McKinney, he accused "pro-Israeli lawmakers" on the House International Relations Committee of having excessive "emotional attachments to Israel cause." "The Israeli occupation of all territories must end," he said, "including Congress."
