A facebook post by Taher Herzallah, leader of one of the groups represented in a recently formed Muslim political party in the U.S., clearly celebrates Israeli casualties and the group that has caused them – Hamas. The post has since been taken down (screenshot below).
As the National Campus Coordinator for American Muslims for Palestine, Herzallah also represents the US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), an organization formed with Muslim Brotherhood front groups in America to create the first Muslim Brotherhood political party in the U.S.
Earlier this year, Shoebat.com reported on the founding member groups of USCMO. They include CAIR, MAS, and ICNA.
As far as posts to social media that reveal the true feelings of these supposed Muslim civil rights groups, CAIR’s Executive Director Nihad Awad was caught using doublespeak earlier this month with twitter. Upon learning the news that convicted terrorist financier Sami al-Arian had been released from jail, Awad sent out two tweets – one in English and one in Arabic. They were not the same; the Arabic tweet blamed the ‘Israeli lobby’ as Shoebat.com reported.
Last month, USCMO held its inauguration in Washington, DC. Two of the speakers at the event were Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN) and Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN); they represent the only two Muslims in Congress. The goal of USCMO is clearly to help elect more.
Another prominent figure within USCMO is Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the first World Trade Center bombing who is closely connected to the infamous “Blind Sheikh”, Omar Abdel Rahman.
Wahhaj was one of the speakers at the USCMO inauguration, alongside Ellison and Carson. As Shoebat.com reported, Glenn Greenwald and Wahhaj shared a podium at a 2013 CAIR banquet.
Greenwald is the ‘journalist’ who provided Edward Snowden a platform to release highly sensitive NSA information. According to an exhaustive article Greenwald wrote in defense of highly suspect Muslim figures in the U.S., he claimed that though Awad expressed support for Hamas in 1994, he stopped doing so when the group moved into the realm of suicide bombings.
If that were true, Awad should condemn the elation of Herzallah.
