The jihad caucus may have a new member in 2020. Shaniyat Chowdhury comes from New York’s (Queens) far-Left 5th congressional district. As such, it is not a surprise that Chowdhury would support the anti-Semitic BDS Movement. At one time having such anti-Semitic views would have been disqualifying for anyone seeking public office in New York. Now it is the new normal since the anti-Semitic Democrat Party is firmly in charge of the state. #Jexodus!
I appreciate this because the conversation for Palestinian rights should continue be highlighted. I will always fight for human rights.
I support #BDS.
I denounce Antisemitism.
I respect every person‘s right to live in a dignified society. https://t.co/mT2OWEFrfr

Democratic candidate for House accuses Israel of ‘human rights violations,’ supports BDS
By JNS, January 10, 2019:
A Democrat running in New York for the U.S. House of Representatives this year has accused Israel of “human rights violations” and has expressed support for boycotting the Jewish state.
“Shan believes all people including Israelis and Palestinians should have equal rights. The U.S. continued support of any government not abiding by international human right laws are subject to human rights violations,” states the campaign website of Shaniyat Chowdhury, who is running for the Democratic nomination in the state’s 5th Congressional District, which is currently served by Democratic Rep. Gregory Meeks. “With millions of lives lost, the people in the Middle East are exhausted from the conflict and seek peace.”
“The people of Palestine have not only been displaced from their homes, but are classified as second-class citizens in the region,” he continues. “Palestinians should be protected as equal citizens with equal rights.”
The campaign website also states that “the U.S. government needs to stop enabling conflicts by reducing aid from nations committing human rights violations,” a reference implied of Israel.
