A Muslim adviser to the Department of Homeland Security reportedly named Israel as a "suspect" just after the 9/11 terror attacks.

The Daily Caller reports that in October of 2001, Salam Al-Marayati — executive director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council and member of the Homeland Security Advisory Committee — suggested in an interview that Israel, and not Islamic extremists, were behind the Sept. 11 atrocities.

"If we're going to look at suspects, we should look to the groups that benefit the most from these kinds of incidents," Al-Marayati said in 2001. "And I think we should put the state of Israel on the suspect list because I think this diverts attention from what's happening in the Palestinian territories so that they can go on with their aggression and occupation and apartheid policies."

That interview, according to the New York Times, was made on a radio talk show, a transcript of which was provided by several Jewish organizations.

The Daily Caller said the Department of Homeland Security did not reply to "multiple requests" for comment.
