We made our way to where the J Street affair was taking place. Peering inside the meeting room, amidst roughly 40 others was the radical behind both AMANA and AMER (and the person responsible for putting the Duke video on the AMANA site), Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout.
Zakkout is a native of Gaza, who grew up in Kuwait and moved to the U.S. in 1977. Since he has been in the States, he has worked hard to become involved with extremist Muslim organizations, including ones beyond AMANA and AMER.
Shortly after AMANA’s incorporation, Zakkout was named the Vice President of the Health Resource Center for Palestine (HRCP), a Hamas-related charity then-based in Deerfield Beach, Florida. Zakkout’s colleague at HRCP – HRCP’s Secretary/Treasurer – Syed Khawer Ahmad, was the then-webmaster and creator of the official website of the Islamic Association, Al-Jamiya Al-Islamia, the Gaza-based parent organization of Hamas.
It is these affiliations for Zakkout that caused him to, this past July, lose his appointed position he held on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.
All of this considered however, according to different sources, Zakkout, along with three others attending the J Street kickoff – all identifying themselves as “Palestinians” – when introduced, received applause from the J Street audience.
Question: If J Street is as pro-Israel as it says it is, why would the group be attracting (and applauding) someone connected to Hamas?
The answer is that J Street is nothing but a lie – a political ruse to get Democrats and other left leaning individuals identifying themselves as Zionists to become involved with an anti-Israel organization. Indeed, whenever Israel does anything significant to defend her nation, J Street goes on the attack.
So when someone like Zakkout, whose organizations openly target Israel, whose group AMANA posted a video onto its site stating, “Please help us protect our children from the Zionist jews” –– When someone like Zakkout attends one of J Street’s events, it is fitting to say the least.
Joe Kaufman is the Chairman of Americans Against Hate and the spokesman for Young Zionists. He has been responsible for the closure of at least one terror-related charity and has convinced a number of government officials to shun the Hamas front group, CAIR. In June 2009, he won a lawsuit brought against him by seven Dallas-area radical Muslim organizations.
