Anthony Weiner is a dangerous demagogue. He is hardly talented or
smart enough to be considered Machiavellian, but it is surely what he
aspires to. He is married to Huma Abedin, who grew up in Saudi Arabia and has Muslim Brotherhood ties.
Jihad murder mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki has praised Al Jazeera, and
several years ago one of its most prominent reporters was arrested on
terror charges. Al Jazeera also has, for years, been the recipient of
numerous al-Qaida videos featuring Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri
and American traitor Adam Gadahn. Yet it never seems to be able to trace
where these videos are coming from. It has repeatedly been set up at
the point of attack right before a bomb went off so it could take the
picture of the slaughtered, dismembered bodies.
Al Jazeera has provided material support for jihad terrorism. A
number of people in its employ are members of al-Qaida. Al Jazeera’s
correspondent in Afghanistan, who interviewed Osama bin Laden, was sent
to prison for being an agent of al-Qaida. Al Jazeera’s first managing
director was exposed as an agent of the Saddam Hussein regime, and the
channel promoted the bloody jihad against American forces in Iraq.
Did Huma press Weiner into taking this cash?
Weiner roasted for accepting cash from Al Jazeera lobbyist Jihadwatch, July 20, 2013
More of the Leftist/jihadist
alliance: if Al Gore can sell Current TV to Jihad TV, why can't Weiner
accept money from them? Probably his wife thought it was a terrific
idea. "More heat on Weiner over ‘Jazeera’ cash," by Sally Goldenberg for
the New York Post, July 20:
Oy! Jewish leaders are kvetching over Anthony Weiner’s
accepting campaign cash from a lobbyist for Al Jazeera — Osama bin
Laden’s favorite TV network.
City Councilman Lew Fidler (D-Brooklyn), who has endorsed former city
Comptroller Bill Thompson’s mayoral bid, called on rival candidate
Weiner to return the $4,950 donation to lobbyist John Merrigan.
“Al Jazeera and its lobbyists are no friends to New York City or our
Jewish community, and Anthony shouldn’t accept their support,” Fidler
said. “They have spread hate and lies against Jews, not only here in New
York but across the world. The right thing to do is to give this money
back. Anthony should do exactly that.”
Although Weiner is the only Jew in the crowded Democratic field for
mayor, and often touts his support of Israel, Thompson is aggressively
courting the Orthodox Jewish community.
Assemblyman Alan Maisel, a Brooklyn Democrat who has endorsed
Thompson, also chastised Weiner for taking the contribution from
Merrigan, who has done extensive work with the network accused of being
anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and anti-United States.
Bin Laden often leaked his propaganda tapes to the Qatar-based
network, which aired several of his taped messages just months after
“Anthony Weiner should know better than to accept contributions from
friends [at] Al Jazeera, which has been a voice for terrorists and
spewed hatred against Jews and the state of Israel,” Maisel said. “They
have echoed and attempted to legitimize hate speech about wiping Israel
off the map. It’s disgraceful.
“While I respect Anthony, he has done wrong by accepting this
terror-tainted money. Now he should do the right thing: return it.”
Shea Rubenstein, president of the Jewish Community Council of Marine Park, echoed the call.
“Our community has always promoted tolerance, and I have known Anthony Weiner as a congressman who has upheld that value.
“That’s why I am deeply saddened and concerned that he would accept
money from a lobbyist for Al Jazeera,” said Rubenstein, who has not made
an endorsement in the race.
“I hope that Anthony will do the right thing by returning this money
and maintain sensitivity to Jewish people and families across the city.”
Weiner declined to comment….
