NYC: CAIR Islamist enters District 7 City Council race

center

He seeks to replace another Muslim, Robert Jackson, whom we’ve covered here. via Community leader Zead Ramadan throws hat in District 7 City Council race, raises quick bucks  – NY Daily News.

Zead Ramadan has called upper Manhattan his home for more than 40 years and he’s worn numerous hats in an effort to make improvements in his community.

And now he’s ready to take the next step to serve upper Manhattan: a seat on City Council.

On Tuesday, he formally announced his plans to run for the City Council seat being vacated by Councilman Robert Jackson, who plans to run for Manhattan Borough President.

Ramadan has already raised nearly $41,000, according to city Campaign Finance Board records (Ramadan said the total had grown to $47,000 by Thursday).

Ramadan says he would be the Council’s first-ever Arab-American member (a City Council spokeswoman was unable to confirm his assertion), but notes that he’s running to represent upper Manhattan.

“I grew up in this community, and I know northern Manhattan as good as almost anybody,” Ramadan told the Daily News on Wednesday. “I’ve been part of this community since October 1971.”

Ramadan, a Palestinian born in Kuwait, immigrated to Washington Heights with his family, including seven siblings, as a kid and quickly assimilated. He became a college baseball player, a skill he credits to growing up in a largely Dominican-American community.

But Ramadan, 46, was drawn to community service, and it was his local upbringing that sparked the attraction.

“The reason why I’m running is because I love giving back to my community,” he said.

Ramadan has made a career of doing just that.

He was once the chairman of Community Board 12, and still serves on the board.

For over 10 years, he’s served on the board of directors of the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone. He’s the founding chairman of the board of directors for the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance, and vice co-chair of the Washington Heights and Inwood Chamber of Commerce.

He is the president of the board of directors of the New York Chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations, and he’s the founding chairman of the board of directors of the Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center.

And recently, he was elected to the board of directors of the West Harlem Development Corp.

Ramadan said his priorities would include advocating for business, improving education and fighting for affordable housing.

His only concern about running: Would people vote for a candidate with his name?

Then, he said he was reminded of another popular politician with a non-traditional name: Barack Hussein Obama.

Another Muslim name. Go to BNI to read what the Daily News intentionally didn’t tell you about Ramadan – the candidate.

  1. He is welcome to run for office as long as he meets the established requirements. Will he explain how he will implement shari’a in council decisions? Wondering who is the imam of the mosque he attends? How many times has he visited the middle east? What are his plans to promote arab spring in America?

  3. Here’s a good bit of speculation…quite plausible. We KNOW without a doubt that something is up in Benghazi…but what?

    Subject: WHY GEN. PETREAUS WAS SACRIFICED

    WHY GEN. PETREAUS WAS SACRIFICED (from a 30+ year retired member of
    the CIA)

    If this turns out to be true, then you know what will really hit the
    fan. This thing is playing out like a well-written mystery novel. Is
    the worst still yet to come?

    I received this message yesterday. If this proves to be true, it is
    impeachable grounds. It also may help explain why Petreaus was forced
    out a few days before the Benghazi hearings coming up. It explains a
    lot of behavior by Obama and his administration – the “pulled
    security”, the “stand down” orders, and blaming that stupid video.

    The fireworks are coming. It will be the first of many disasters ahead.
    Please share with your email list.

    According to sources in the State Department and the CIA, an
    intercepted communications from the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama “staged”
    the attack in Benghazi in order to create a monumental “October
    Surprise” that would guarantee him re-election. Yes, you read that
    right, and no, I’m not making this up. Obama, we now know is and has
    been working with the Muslim Brotherhood secretly to engineer the
    release of the “Blind Sheik,” Omar Abdel Rahman, the mastermind behind
    the 1993 World Trade Center attack.

    In Obama’s October Surprise, he intentionally set up the consulate to
    have no security so that Chris Stevens could be kidnapped, and held for
    ransom by Al-Qaeda (and the Muslim Brotherhood). Then, several days
    before the election, the plan was to trade Chris Stevens for the Blind
    Sheik, making himself look like a hero, and all but guaranteeing
    re-election.

    This was one of the top reasons why Obama was so insistent on the
    Muslim Brotherhood getting $1.2 Billion in U.S. Aid. They were to have
    primary role in getting Obama re-elected. That is why, even though they
    knew days before the attack that it was going to occur, no effort was
    made to bolster security. It was intended to be non-existent,

    The Libyan security forces were intended to quietly slip into the night
    when the attack began. And they did, just as planned. That is why, even
    though 2 C-130U gun ships, which were built SPECIFICALLY for this kind
    of attack, and which could have saved the lives of our people there and
    were a mere 45 minutes away, were never scrambled at any time during
    the attack. There was to be no resistance whatsoever.

    That is why there were not one, but TWO armed drones flying over the
    consulate during the conflagration… our CIA operatives on the ground
    were painting targets because they knew air cover was available.

    That is why, even though requesting support and backup three times,
    their requests were NOT ignored, but were intentionally, specifically
    DENIED three times, and they were told to “stand down, ” which
    basically means to “surrender.”

    That was part of Obama’s plan. They were not to fight back. That would
    potentially undermine the kidnapping effort and cause unnecessary
    “complications.”

    That is why, even though the CIA operatives and ex-Navy Seals were on
    the ground, providing real-time reports, and even though they were
    “lighting up” the source of the mortars attacking the compound with
    lasers, no gun ships or support ever came. They weren’t supposed to
    resist. That wasn’t “part of the plan.” It also wasn’t part of the plan
    for one of the CIA operatives to intentionally defy Obama’s orders, and
    who rescued the body of Sean Smith and then stood up against orders and
    engaged the enemy who was attacking American soil.

    It was supposed to be “clean.” Quick. Efficient Kidnap the Ambassador
    and get out. Then Save The Day in the “nick of time.” They didn’t
    factor in a tiny group of highly trained ex-Navy Seals/CIA
    operatives… American Patriots and heroes. Even though they eventually
    lost their lives in the firefight, they managed to employ the full
    measure of their skills, and took out over 80 attackers in the
    process… which enraged the attackers, who were led to believe that
    they would encounter no resistance.

    THAT is why Ambassador Stevens was raped (sodomized), murdered, and
    dragged through the streets. In their warped minds, they believed that
    they had been betrayed by the U.S. yet again.

    They believed that Obama was their friend. They believed that they were
    going to get their beloved Blind Sheik back. And yet, here were 80 of
    their own… dead by American hands.

    Obama was asked directly in an interview if he denied their request for
    assistance, he refused to answer, and instead droned on with a canned
    response promising to “bring those responsible to justice.” Former CIA
    and State Dept. personnel are coming out now with damning evidence that
    indicts President Obama, and reveals the truth about what is going on.
    Hillary Clinton, who is now openly laying the blame at the feet of the
    President, after falling on her sword in a premature show of loyalty
    for the Administration.

    The “Video” defense was carefully crafted WEEKS in advance, to explain
    the attack. If this doesn’t outrage you, If you are not moved enough to
    contact your congressman about this, you are not worthy of your
    citizenship.

    • To ‘Islamophobe’ – What you are saying is absolutely a plausible explanation for the Bengazi attacks!!!! And it is abundantly clear to all free-thinking Americans that BHO will stop at NOTHING to promote his islamo-fascist agenda!!!!! All of the truth-dodging dhimmis and outright islamists who are running our current administration MUST BE HELD UP TO THE LIGHT OF TRUTH!!!!! BHO MUST BE IMPEACHED!!!!!

      I plan to email your comments to all of my friends. THIS INFO NEEDS GO VIRIL (sp?)!!!!!

    • only one problem with this info…if this is true, Why would obama and the msm do everything in thier power to keep this quiet until after the election….if the whole point was to get him elected in the first place

      • To ‘Bill T’ – Come-on! What do you mean ‘WHY’? Isn’t it clear to you that this alleged entire ‘Obama plot’ was FOILED by the “off-duty ex-Navy Seals”???? Come-on!!!!!

        I personally think that ‘Islamophobe’ has latched on to something really big here! This is the first bit of an inkling of anything so far, that actually makes sense to me about the Bengazi fiasco. Clearly, there’s more to this than we have been told!!!!! Tell me this–HOW COME Petraeus’s wife never showed any signs of disbelief or rejection when she learned of her husband’s alleged long-standing ongoing infidelities????? Hmmmm!!!!! And HOW COME Hillary Dillery suddenly fell down and cracked her head open???? I’m just amazed that they didn’t come up with some kind of a cock-n-bull amnesia story too!!! This White House is WAY BEYOND BEING WICKEDLY DECEPTIVE! He may be something akin to the ANTI-CHRIST!!!!!

    • This interesting theory came out a few days after Benghazi, and while the salient points do indeed fit perfectly, so perfectly I’m inclined to believe it; don’t hold your breath that it will result in the impeachment of the muslim in the White House, who displays an incredible talent for getting out of impeachable situations.

      Indeed, the hated “Teflon Tony” Blair is made to look like a raw beginner, compared with obama.

  4. OMG NYC! GET A GRIP–PLEASE!!! THERE IS NONE SO BLIND AS HE WHO WILL NOT SEE!!!! DO NOT–DO NOT–DO NOT ELECT THESE PEOPLE INTO GOVERNMENT POSITIONS OF AUTHORITY!!! NYC–YOU ARE DIGGING YOUR OWN GRAVES!!!!! PEACE IS AS PEACE DOES–THESE IMPOSTERS ARE ALL FUNDED BY MIDDLE-EASTERN TERRORIST GROUPS!!!!! WAKE UP!!!!!

    P.S. Please note that his predecessor, who just so happens to be a muslim with an American sounding name, is now running for a MORE INFLUENTIAL OFFICE within the Manhattan City Council, i.e., he’s seeking the top office of PRESIDENT of the City Council!!! OMG–OMG!!!!!

    ALSO NOTE: That this scumbag makes no bones about identifying with his mentor and “American” idol, B. Hussein O.!!!!! Hmmmm!!!!! Veadddy interesting !!!!! WHO KNEW?????

    • To ‘ecmh@cox.net’ – YOU’RE A COWARD AND A DIRTBAG!!!!! JUST LIKE ALL OF YOUR BEASTIALITY- CHILD-MOLESTING- BLOOD SUCKING- PERVERTED- ASS-KISSING-“brothers”!!!!! YOU’RE ALL ALIKE!!!!!

      DON’T COME OUT INTO THE LIGHT OF DAY AND OWN UP TO YOUR DAMNABLE ACTS OF HATRED AND VIOLENCE–JUST HIDE BEHIND YOUR VEILED FACES AND PLEAS OF “INNOCENCE” WHENEVER YOU ARE CONFRONTED WITH THE HARD TRUTH!!!!!

  8. I just can’t take the stupidity of progressives any more. Why are they so complacent about losing their country? Are they just so uninformed that they don’t know what’s coming? Are they so ignorant that they don’t read the information in their iPhones and laptops? What the hell do they read all freaking day when their faces are buried during lunch? I just sit here day after day and read about the takeover of our country by the Brotherhood groups and it never stops. When will America wake up? How do we get through to our own people?
