This is no surprise. The Democrats have become the neo-Nazi party. These nominations have only succeeded in confirming antisemitism as the new policy of the Democrat Party not just in Minnesota, but nationwide, normalizing it and mainstreaming it and confirming Ilhan Omar as one of the new darlings of the enemedia and the left. The Jew-hatred of the left has been obvious for years, and growing rapidly with the increasing Muslim population in the U.S. Now it has won total victory. No Jew in America should vote Democrat after this, especially with the most pro-Israel President ever in the White House now. But the enemedia still vilifies him as antisemitic.
“Minnesota lawmakers nominate anti-Semites to fight anti-Semitism,” by Sam Westrop, JNS, March 22, 2019 (thanks to Wendy):
Two Democratic lawmakers in Minnesota have put forward a bill that would place anti-Semitic Islamist organizations—and specifically, their demonstrably anti-Semitic officials—in charge of a “taskforce on the consequences of Islamophobia and anti-Semitism.”
Sponsored by Democratic Representatives Jay Xiong, Carlos Mariani and Aisha Gomez, H.F 2587 seeks to “analyze the impact of Islamophobia and antisemitism, recommend actions to improve the safety of Minnesota’s Muslim and Jewish communities, increase participation by the Muslim and Jewish communities in civic life, and recommend possible legislative action.”
In the wake of the New Zealand massacre by a self-proclaimed “eco-fascist,” and with rising anti-Semitism, including from Minnesota’s own U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, who could object to the Minnesota legislature seeking to combat hate?
But there is one very good reason to be concerned: The bill seeks to place anti-Semitic activists from anti-Semitic organizations in charge of the taskforce. The proposed legislation specifically calls for taskforce leaders to include the executive directors of Darul Farooq Center, the Islamic Association of North America, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim American Society (MAS).
MAS’s Minnesota branch is led by Asad Zaman. Despite his nomination to the proposed taskforce, Zaman is not shy about his views on Jews and Islamism. His Facebook account is replete with anti-Semitism, apologism for Hamas and support for convicted war criminals.
Posts promoted by Zaman include links to a neo-Nazi, Holocaust-denial website, which promotes viciously anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, as well as blogs that claim that American presidents “depend upon the votes and influence of Jews in New York who support Israel, have always been ready to give the Israelis the weapons to enable them pursue this evil. In effect, U.S. foreign policy is determined by Israel.”
Zaman’s obsession with Jews includes hundreds of posts praising fringe groups of anti-Zionist Jews as (in implicit contrast with mainstream Jewish organization) “Jews of conscience” and “integrity.”
Zaman has written: “It is a tactic of the Israeli lobby to label those whom they cannot shut up as anti-Semites. (please check out the Hasbara manual).”
Although MAS was established by the Muslim Brotherhood, Zaman is a vocal supporter of its ideological cousin, Jamaat-e-Islami—a South Asian Islamist movement responsible for the mass murder of tens of thousands of civilians during Bangaldesh’s 1971 Liberation War. Zaman praises these mass murderers, referring to its former leader, Moitur Rahman Nizami (who was executed for his part in the genocide) as a “great shaheed [martyr].”
Zaman has also shared posts mourning other Jamaat-e-islami leaders authored by Islami Chhatra Shabir, Jamaat’s student branch, which Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Centre named in 2014 as the third-most violent non-state armed group in the world.
In light of all his anti-Semitism and support for violent Islamist causes, the MAS-MN director’s apologism for the designated terrorist group Hamas is not particularly surprising. He writes that: “It is Israel, not Hamas, that uses human shields. And Israel has a long track record of blaming others for the very crimes it commits.” Zaman also promoted a post from Hamas’s official website mourning the execution of the Jamaati war criminal Nizami.
CAIR Minnesota is also a worrying candidate to control a taskforce against anti-Semitism. Along with its parent organization’s long history of ties to terror and the overt anti-Semitism of its officials, CAIR Minnesota also regularly invites anti-Jewish speakers to address its events. Recent examples include Hatem Bazian, who tweeted two anti-Semitic images that accuse “Ashke-Nazis” of rape, murder and organ-trafficking; as well as Hussam Ayloush, director of CAIR’s Los Angeles branch, who, in 2018, called for Israel to be “terminated” and expressed support for Hamas supporters convicted of financing terrorism…
It is clear that anti-Semitic Islamists in Minnesota are behind this bill. It is even clearer that Minnesota’s representatives should not be tasking anti-Semites with managing and defining the threat of anti-Semitism.
