Speaking at an anti-Israel rally in London, antisemitic terror supporter Mohammed El-Kurd has seemingly said the quiet part out loud.
Today, Palestinian activist Mohammed El-Kurd (@m7mdkurd) spoke at an anti-Israel rally and said, “we must normalize massacres as the status quo.” He’d like to see more massacres of Jews.— (((noa tishby))) (@noatishby) January 14, 2024
He spoke at @Harvard, @Princeton, @MIT, @DukeU, and many other colleges. #CancelElKurd pic.twitter.com/WZ8q91VIFC
I have listened to this repeatedly and can confirm that is exactly what he said. Listen for yourselves.
Yet El-Kurd is engaging in one of his favorite pastimes: gaslighting.
El-Kurd could have claimed here that he misspoke, and meant to add the word “not.” But he is denying what he clearly said. It speaks to his constant lying and supreme arrogance. Remember, this is the same guy who is on record as saying he does not care whether the word “apartheid” actually applies to Israel – as long as Israel is made to look like the villain, all is good.
Now let’s look at his entire speech..
This is possibly the most antisemitic public speech I've seen in front of such a large crowd in the UK. And in front of Westminster of all places.— Yonatan יונתן #AdoptIHRA (@__jacker__) January 13, 2024
This swapping out of of Jews for "Zionists" would make any Stalinist antisemite proud. pic.twitter.com/G1AbQmCFqh
Leaving aside the fact 5Pillars translated this sentence in line with El-Kurd’s disingenuous claim, he clearly also says
“Zionism is apartheid, it’s genocide, it’s murder, it’s a racist ideology. And we must root it out of the world. We must be de-Zionised because Zionism is a death cult. Zionism is indefensible.”
How does El-Kurd suggest to “root out” Zionism? One needn’t imagine too hard that this would also entail the murder of Jews.
Especially considering his reaction to the events of October 7:
So whether or not El-Kurd said exactly what he meant to say, or whether it was a Freudian slip, does not really matter. We already know he is supportive of the massacre of Jews, and does try to normalize it.
