Newsletter #93 – Nashville’s Jewish Federation Dupes Elite Private Schools

The ad for the upcoming “Stronger Together” program lists respected, long-standing Nashville private schools Harding Academy and Montgomery Bell Academy as publicity partners.  Montgomery Bell is also hosting the event on its campus.

The Jewish Federation’s Community Relations Council (CRC) is the event organizer.  Newsletter #92 questioned whether the CRC’s director, Abbie Wolf was aware of panelist Remziya Suleyman’s close association with and activism on behalf of, the Muslim Brotherhood’s off-shoot CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations ) and its ties to Hamas.

If Ms. Wolf wasn’t aware of Suleyman’s ties to CAIR, someone needs to let her know.  Or at least tell her about the Brotherhood motto:

Allah is our objective.  The Prophet is our leader. The Quran is our law.  Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

However, Wolf’s boss, Mark Freedman, Executive Director of the Nashville Jewish Federation probably does know Suleyman.  Turns out they were in the same Leadership Nashville class last year so they probably had more than a passing acquaintance.

So, was concealing Suleyman’s “other” activities deliberate or accidental?  Either way, original source documentation shows her close association with and promotion of Hamas tied CAIR.

This issue aside, it is surprising that Nashville’s elite private schools are allowing the Jewish Federation’s CRC to draw them into a very messy politically – driven agenda with ties to terrorism.  Are these schools aware that the CRC is implementing a resolution to reach out specifically to Islamist organizations?

It was reported that the resolution was inspired by leadership of the Union for Reform Judaism who chose to buddy up with another Muslim Brotherhood off-shoot, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).

ISNA is listed in the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood strategic plan for North America and was also a named unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror financing prosecution.

In Nashville, the Federation’s CRC members are at the helm of the Family of Abraham events, having hosted ISNA’s Muslim Brotherhood member Sayeed Sayyid.  So the Federation is busy building bridges with the Muslim Brotherhood while other Political Islamists in Nashville are hosting speakers like Dawud Walid, Sirraj Wahhaj and Zaid Shakir who remind the Muslim youth of the supremacy of Islam.

Zaid Shakir says:  “If Islam is the basis, the kafir [non-believer] won’t be equal with the Muslim. The Christian or the Jew will be a dhimmi [second-class citizen]. They won’t be equal with the Muslim.”

Dawud Walid says: “Who incurred the wrath of Allah?  They are the Jews.  They are the Jews.”

Sirraj Wahhaj says: “Islam is better than democracy.”

Remziya Suleyman: thumbs up to Nation of Islam:

Do Nashville’s most reputable and exclusive private schools want to stand and partner with Muslim Brotherhood terrorist groups?  And be “Stronger” with them?  Have they been duped into this event, and if so, why?  And why do the Federation and various Christian sects want to align themselves with and serve an Islamist master who deems them apes and pigs behind their backs?
