BROWARD COUNTY ALLOWS HAMAS-RELATED ORGANIZATION TO ADOPT A STREET
ANTI-HATE GROUP TO PROTEST CAIR STREET SIGN ON HANUKKAH
(Davie, FL) On noon Friday, December 18th, Americans Against Hate (AAH), the anti-bigotry, terrorism watchdog group, will be holding a rally against the Broward County government for giving a public street sign to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Hamas-associated organization. The sign, which is located in Davie, Florida just outside Broward Community College and Nova Southeastern University, is part of Broward's "Adopt-A-Street" program.
CAIR was created by Hamas operatives in 1994 and was recently named by the U.S. Justice Department a co-conspirator for a Hamas financing trial taking place in Dallas, Texas. Since the trial, the FBI has refused formal contact with CAIR.
The demonstration will take place toward the end of Hanukkah, a fact whose symbolic nature is not overlooked by AAH.
AAH Chairman Joe Kaufman stated, "On Hanukkah, millions of people around the world celebrate the triumph of the Jewish people over those who wished to destroy them. We want Broward County to recognize the fact that those involved with Hamas, like the Greeks 2000 years before them, have a similar goal to destroy the Jews. And we want Broward County to know that it allowed a sign to be ‘adopted' by a group connected to Hamas."
AAH is calling on the Broward government and the city of Davie to remove the sign immediately.
AAH had previously protested Broward County for allowing CAIR to place offensive messages on Broward's public buses.
Speakers at the rally against the street sign will include Kaufman, Rabbi Andrew Jacobs of Ramat Shalom – Plantation, and Tuly Wultz, co-founder of the Daniel Cantor Wultz Foundation.
When: Friday, December 18, 2009, 12:00 Noon
Where: Outside the Broward County Commission building, at 115 S. Andrews Ave., in Downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Please bring your American flags. All signage will be provided by Americans Against Hate.
