RADICAL MUSLIM GROUP REPRINTS ARTICLE FROM ANTI-SEMITIC WEBSITE, REBEL NEWS
AMANA ARTICLE ASSERTS THAT JEWS WERE INVOLVED IN THE SEPTEMBER 11TH ATTACKS
(Miami, FL) An article currently up on the homepage of the American Muslim Association of North America (AMANA) website was reprinted from and contains a link to the anti-Semitic web forum, Rebel News. A graphic from the site was reprinted as well.
The article, entitled ‘ADL to Attack Journalists and Publications Tying Israel to Wikileaks
,’ labels the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and AIPAC as “agencies of Israeli intelligence.” The piece quotes an unnamed source stating that a group of mostly Jews from the Bush Administration “green-lighted 9/11.”
Another article presently found on Rebel News discusses Arizona shooter Jared Loughner, using the title 'Just Another Freak in Jewmerica or Something Else?'
The individual responsible for posting the 9/11 Jewish conspiracy piece on AMANA’s site is AMANA Director Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout. Zakkout recently lost his reappointment to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights due to his past involvement with a Hamas-related organization.
This was not the first time Zakkout posted anti-Semitic material on his website. Recently, in July 2010, Zakkout posted onto the AMANA site an anti-Jewish video produced by and featuring former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke
