(Tallahassee, FL) On March 9th and 10th, Ahmed Bedier, the former representative for the Hamas-affiliated Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and “unofficial spokesman” for Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorist Sami Al-Arian, will be holding an event in Tallahassee, Florida, under the banner of his newly formed group, United Voices for America (UVA). The UVA was created, according to Bedier, to lobby the Florida legislature and to “empower” Muslims “to change Florida.” Americans Against Hate thinks there is an alternative sinister agenda.
Americans Against Hate (AAH), a civil rights and terrorism watchdog group, believes that Bedier is a threat to America and Israel and will use his new organization to do harm to American freedoms and to create division between the Florida legislature and the Jewish state.
AAH Chairman Joe Kaufman stated, “For over seven years, Ahmed Bedier has been involved with groups and individuals tied to and in support of anti-Israel terrorist groups, such as Hamas, PIJ and Hezbollah. The change Bedier is looking for is a threat to America and Israel. We call on all of Florida’s lawmakers to ignore the innocuous sounding name and nature of the UVA and to distance themselves from Bedier.”
AAH is asking those disturbed by Ahmed Bedier’s activities to respectfully contact Florida legislators to voice their concerns.
