TCPJ Alert -Nashville Jewish Federation Chooses CAIR Promoter For Leadership Nashville Panel

We have heard that on Thursday, February 6, 2013, the Nashville Jewish Federation will again be hosting CAIR promoter Remziya Suleyman, Director of the American Center for Outreach (ACO) as a speaker.

This is the second time that the Jewish Federation has sponsored Suleyman as a speaker. Suleyman’s collaboration with and promotion of Muslim Brotherhood off-shoot Hamas-linked CAIR is well documented.  This past summer she brought Islamist militant and CAIR Michigan Director Dawud Walid to train Tennessee’s Muslim students. Walid is noted for demonizing Jews as the source of Black Muslims’ problems.

It doesn’t seem to impress Federation Director Mark Freedman that Suleyman’s beehive of friends includes people like Islamist radical Linda Sarsour CAIR’s 2013 American Muslim of the Year who sends tweets that say “[n]othing is creepier than Zionism.”  Nor does Suleyman’s admiration for both the Nation of Islam and Rev. Al Sharpton seem to bother him much.

The Federation’s second in command CRC director is Abbie Wolf, who previously worked for the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). In addition to confirming CAIR’s Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas ties, the ADL website adds this information about CAIR:

“CAIR also continues to offer a platform to conspiratorial Israel-bashers and outright anti-Semites.  For example, CAIR’s Florida chapter operates a Web site that makes anti-Semitic material available for visitors interested in learning about Islam. CAIR also organizes anti-Israel rallies during which protestors and speakers engage in anti-Semitic rhetoric, use offensive Holocaust imagery likening Jews and Israelis to Nazis, and express support for terror groups.”
