Anti-Zionist-Not Antisemite of the Day: Khalid Akhter (Chicago, Illinois)

Meet Khalid Akhter, a Pakistani-born man who moved to the UK and now lives in Chicago:

A QA tester at Google in Chicago, Khalid has tweeted in support of protests against Project Nimbus, a $1.2 billion agreement for Google and Amazon to supply Israel and its military with artificial intelligence tools and other computing services.

But don’t think for a second that Khalid’s hatred of Israel comes from a genuine love of palestinian Arabs. It comes from a hatred of the Jewish people, which manifests itself in defending notorious hate preacher Israr Ahmed, whose antisemitism inspired a British Islamist to travel to the US to take Jews hostage at gunpoint – while railing against the “Jewish lobby”:

In fact, Khalid is quite the fan of Israr Ahmed, retweeting him on multiple occasions:

and sharing on Facebook a video of the preacher speaking about “Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Destruction of the Jews”:


I dunno. I wouldn’t want Khalid around any synagogues or Jews.

Khalid, thanks for playing anti-Zionist-Not-Antisemite. Unfortunately
