Those puzzled by the notion of New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner accepting money accepting money from Al-Jazeera may want to consider a better question: Why is Al-Jazeera giving him money in the first place? We can’t figure it out except for one reason – his wife is a devout Muslim with extensive, irrefutable familial connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, whose propaganda is piped all over the Middle East by… Al-Jazeera.
Jewish leaders are kvetching over Anthony Weiner’s accepting campaign cash from a lobbyist for Al Jazeera — Osama bin Laden’s favorite TV network.
City Councilman Lew Fidler (D-Brooklyn), who has endorsed former city Comptroller Bill Thompson’s mayoral bid, called on rival candidate Weiner to return the $4,950 donation to lobbyist John Merrigan.
“Al Jazeera and its lobbyists are no friends to New York City or our Jewish community, and Anthony shouldn’t accept their support,” Fidler said. “They have spread hate and lies against Jews, not only here in New York but across the world. The right thing to do is to give this money back. Anthony should do exactly that.”
Bin Laden often leaked his propaganda tapes to the Qatar-based network, which aired several of his taped messages just months after 9/11.
“Anthony Weiner should know better than to accept contributions from friends [at] Al Jazeera, which has been a voice for terrorists and spewed hatred against Jews and the state of Israel,” Maisel said. “They have echoed and attempted to legitimize hate speech about wiping Israel off the map. It’s disgraceful.
Al-Jazeera is essentially the Muslim Brotherhood television network. For years, Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader – Yusuf al-Qaradawi – has had his own program on the network, which is headquartered in Doha, Qatar. The Brotherhood despises Jews. Qaradawi himself said in 2009, that the holocaust was “divine punishment… carried out by Hitler” through Allah and that the Jews “exaggerated this issue”. Yet, Al-Jazeera is contributing money to the only Jewish candidate for Mayor in New York City and who married a devout Muslim woman whose mother is a leader in the Muslim Sisterhood??!?!
As we mentioned earlier today, the Huma Abedin defense team hasn’t a leg left to stand on and is up against the ropes but no one wants to throw the knockout punch.
Apparently, they’d rather see the daughter of a Muslim Sisterhood leader become the first lady of the city that was hit on 9/11.
