Stop Donating To The Terror Tied AJC & Muslim Jewish Advisory Council - Which Aids And Abets Stealth Jihadists

February 2, 2017

MIM: The American Jewish Committee and the Islamic Society of North America announced their partnership on November 14th 2016 in a press release. Among the radical Islamist members is Imam Mohamed Magid, who delivered an anti semitic and anti Christian invocation at a religious service for the presidential inauguration." Last Saturday, at a National Prayer Service in Washington D.C. attended by President Donald Trump,an imam named Mohamed Magid recited Sura 1, calling on his god to show special disfavor to Jews and Christians. As it happens, Mr. Magid is a known Muslim Brotherhood operative..." https://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2017/01/24/imam-curses-christians-jews-at-trump/

MIM: Imam Mohamed Magid, a member of the Muslim Jewish Advisory Council, revealed that the MJAC Congressional reception aimed to promote an Islamist agenda with the help of the Jewish "useful idiots" of the AJC who are acting as a Trojan Horse for the Muslim stealth jihad legions. (For more on Magid see below).

MIM: In a recent press release David Harris,the head of the AJC, disingenuously downplayed the terrorism threat posed by Muslim immigrants calling it "a cruel and distracting fiction" and perversely claimed that Americans pose more of a threat to their fellow citizens. In doing so he ignores the slew of deadly terrorist attacks which have been perpetrated by foreign born Muslims who came to America as immigrants upon innocent Americans.

"The terrorist threat attributed to refugees is a cruel and distracting fiction, especially when viewed against the actual incidence of mass violence committed with chilling frequency – in schools, churches, shopping malls and other venues – against Americans by Americans.

NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council, a new national group of leading Muslim and Jewish Americans, was launched this month at a meeting convened by the American Jewish Committee (AJC) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).

  • The Council will work to protect and expand the rights of religious minorities in the U.S., as enshrined in the Constitution, so they may practice their faiths in full freedom and security.

"Our two communities share much in common and should find ways, where possible, to work together for the benefit of the entire country," said Stanley Bergman, Co-Chair of the Council.

Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council Calls on Congress to Protect Citizens' Equal Rights and Equal Protection Under Law, Take Action to Reduce Hate Crimes

"America promises all its citizens equal rights and equal protection under the laws," the Council's declaration reads. "We have come together to help deliver on that promise for our communities and all Americans, and to participate in building our country pursuant to its laws and ethical traditions."

In light of President Trump's January 27th Executive Order on refugee policy, the Council's members wrote to Congress, supporting the concerns expressed by many bipartisan members of Congress and underscoring their opposition to any bar on refugee or other immigration based on one's religion.

The Council went on to call on Congress to act following the recent rise in hate crimes.

"It is imperative that Congress work to strengthen our country's response to the increase in hate crimes, in particular by exercising its oversight responsibilities so as to ensure that the Justice Department maintains, and heightens, its work with state and local officials on hate crimes, and prosecutes such crimes at the federal level where necessary," the Council members wrote.

Members of the Council, its supporters and Members of Congress will gather for an open-press reception on Wednesday, February 1 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM in Dirksen Senate Office Building, SD-G50. Press interested in attending should contact courts@teamsubjectmatter.com.

What We Stand For

America promises all its citizens equal rights and equal protection under the laws. We have come together to help deliver on that promise for our communities and all Americans, and to participate in building our country pursuant to its laws and ethical traditions.

Our country is unique in being a democracy based not on religious or ethnic homogeneity but on equality of all citizens regardless of ethnicity or religion. We affirm our sacred commitment to that principle.

This commitment to a pluralistic democracy goes back to the founders of our country. As George Washington wrote to the Jewish congregation of Newport, Rhode Island: "For happily the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens, in giving it on all occasions their effectual support." Benjamin Franklin wrote in his autobiography that he raised money to build a hall "expressly for the use of any preacher of any religious persuasion who might desire to say something to the people of Philadelphia."

We embrace this commitment as part of the common heritage of our Abrahamic faiths expressed in different religious teachings. As it is written in the Book of Leviticus: "You shall not stand idly by the blood of your neighbor.…You shall love your neighbor as yourself," so is it written in the Quran: "O mankind! We have created you male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another." We believe America is the country where our religious and secular aspirations together can be realized.

Therefore, in light of a recent rise of political polarization in our country, we have come together in public to reaffirm our commitment to religious freedom and pluralism, to demonstrate solidarity with each other, and to rebind the bonds of affection with our countrymen, as Abraham Lincoln once asked us to do, invoking the better angels of our nature.

Dear Members of Congress:

We are a coalition of American Jews and Muslims who have come together to reaffirm our commitment to

religious freedom and pluralism, to demonstrate solidarity with each other, and to advocate for public policy

solutions to issues of common concern to our two communities and the entire country. We are Democrats,

Republicans, and independents, business and civil society leaders, former members of Congress, and

university professors who respect differences among us while emphasizing the bonds that unite us.

At a time of increased political polarization in our country, we have come together on a bipartisan basis

to support the rights of religious minorities in the United States as enshrined in our Constitution, and to

celebrate the contributions that Muslims and Jews have made to American democracy. We support the

deep concerns with the President's Executive Order of January 27 on refugee policy expressed by many

members of Congress both Republicans and Democrats. We are concerned with any bar on refugee or other

immigration to the United States based on one's religion.

Our Council's top public policy priority is reversing the increase in hate crimes. Hate crimes intend to

intimidate and spark fear in the community the victim represents. Like terror, a targeted hate crime is meant

to wound not just an individual but a family, a school, a place of worship, a town, or even our entire nation.

There was a 67 percent increase in hate crimes against Muslim Americans in 2015, according to FBI data,

while Jews remain the targets of the most hate crimes based on religion.

The rise in hate crimes is a complex problem caused by many factors, and is marked as well by lack of public

awareness of what is a hate crime, and lack of information within the affected communities. It is imperative

that Congress work to strengthen our country's response to the increase in hate crimes, in particular by

exercising its oversight responsibilities so as to ensure that the Justice Department maintains, and heightens,

its work with state and local officials on hate crimes, and prosecutes such crimes at the federal level where

necessary. Moreover, the Justice Department's coordination with the states should take place not only in the

area of prosecutions, but also in the areas of public education and community relations.

Accurate data on hate crimes is essential to understanding the problem and to designing responses. Some

states and counties report no hate crimes at all or very low rates. We are committed, as individuals and

through our leadership of civil society and communal organizations, to working with state and local

authorities and with local communities to help improve data collection of all hate crimes.
