July 27, 2010 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Acting on information provided to it by Joe Kaufman and Americans Against Hate (AAH), the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has severed relations with Sofian Zakkout, removing him from the organization while demanding that all references to the Civil Rights Commission be immediately stripped from Zakkout’s website.
In an Emailed statement regarding the matter Mr. Kaufman said, “Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout, was formerly the Vice President of the Hamas-associated Health Resource Center for Palestine [and that the] the American Muslim Association of North America, has used its website to promote terror-related organizations and to propagate heavily bigoted material aimed at Jews, Christians and homosexuals.”
Kaufman added that what seemed to precipitate the Commission’s action, “…was the July 25th posting of an anti-Semitic David Duke video on its site…”
Here’s the AAH article referred to above, RADICAL MUSLIM GROUP PLACES ANTI-SEMITIC VIDEO OF WHITE SUPREMACIST DAVID DUKE ON ITS WEBSITE:
AMANA VIDEO TELLS ITS WEB VIEWERS TO “GET THE LATEST” DAVID DUKE VIDEOS
(Miami, FL) Yesterday, July 25, 2010, the American Muslim Association of North America (AMANA), a radical Muslim group based in South Florida, placed a video on its website featuring white supremacist and former KKK leader David Duke.
On the video, which is titled ‘No War for Israel in Iran – Keep Americans Safe,’ Duke rails against Jews and is shown shaking hands with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
The video tells its viewers to “Get the Latest Duke Video — Subscribe!”
Since AMANA began, the group has posted a number of anti-Semitic materials to its website.
AMANA is headed by Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout. Zakkout is the former Vice President of the Health Resource Center for Palestine (HRCP), a Hamas-related group that was shut down in April 2003.
It looks like there are quite a few more Florida agencies and organizations that need to sever ties with this Islamist based on his Spoke.com profile:
