MIAMI-BASED MUSLIM GROUP, AMANA, DEFIANTLY REPOSTS ARTICLE FROM ANTI-SEMITIC WEBSITE
REBEL NEWS WEBSITE CLAIMS "THERE ARE NO GOOD JEWS" AND BEING JEWISH IS A "PATHOLOGICAL MENTAL CONDITION"
(Miami, FL) Following a press release from Americans Against Hate (AAH) about how AMANA, a radical Muslim organization based in Miami, posted an anti-Jewish article to its website, the head of AMANA wrote to AAH brazenly declaring that he and his group would repost the article – and they have.
The article, which makes the wild claim that a group of mostly Jews were involved in the September 11th attacks, was taken from Rebel News, a fervently anti-Semitic website.
As stated by Rebel News on its website, in a piece entitled ‘The Jewish Problem,' "It is our mission at the Rebel Media Group to help Jews realise that they have a huge problem that they can no longer ignore. That Jewishness is neither a race nor a religion, but a pathological mental condition that requires urgent treatment for the sake of mankind as a whole."
In another piece on Rebel News, the group states, "There ARE no honest Jews... There are no good Jews... Jews control everything in this society; and if you don't know that, then you're actually working for them, too, whether you realize it or not."
Last July, AMANA posted (and reposted) on its website an anti-Semitic video from white supremacy leader David Duke. In the past, AMANA has targeted Christians and homosexuals, as well.
AAH Chairman Joe Kaufman stated, "It is both irresponsible and dangerous for a prominent Muslim organization like AMANA to be propagating anti-Jewish hatred to its radical membership. And what is even more daunting is the fact that the group has been receiving government funding for its efforts."
On the bottom of the AMANA website homepage is found a graphic link to Citizen Corps, a division of FEMA and Homeland Security. AMANA has previously received tens of thousands of dollars from FEMA.
Recently AMANA's Director, Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout, lost his reappointment to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, due to information AAH supplied the commission regarding Zakkout's past association with a Hamas-related group.
AAH urges all concerned citizens to contact Citizen Corps (here) to inform it about how its organization is being used by a terror-connected group spreading bigotry.
