Yesterday at the Dearborn, Michigan rally for Bernie Sanders, a number of antisemites took to the stage to speak in support of Bernie Sanders.
People like Imam Al-Hassan Qazwini, who compared Trump to the coronavirus:
Here’s more about Qazwini:
Qazwini boasted of his closeness to Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah, a cleric who was linked to Hezbollah and the Iranian regime. Al-Qazwini publicly mourned his passing.
Qazwini is known for spreading conspiracy theories that Sunni Islamist terrorists are actually operators of the West and Zionist conspiracy — therefore, the West and Jews bear responsibility for their heinous crimes.
He taught that ISIS was created by Israel; that Trump shares attributes similar to ISIS and that the French government is responsible for creating a terrorist breeding ground with its domestic policies against extremism.
He also once said his hero Bernie was “an honorable man, even though he is a Jew.” Talk about back-handed compliments. Funny how he did not quite say it like that here…
Then you have the vile antisemite Amer Zahr, who says the campaign is about “love, justice, freedom and compassion,” and claims to be color blind when it comes to race and religion.
Remember, this is the same guy who wiped Israel off the map in Rashida Tlaib’s congressional office, bullied a Lebanese-American for opening a franchise of an Israeli-created company, and openly mocks Jews.
And naturally, “proud Jew” Bernie did not have dancers dancing the Hava Nagila.
