Zionist-Supported Hank Johnson of Georgia
Accuses Arab Americans and Muslim Americans of Terrorism
By Hassan El-Najjar
Al-Jazeerah, August 10, 2006
Everyday we have new evidence that Zionists in the
United States are relentless in their efforts to instigate the American
public against Arabs and Muslims.
This time, the Zionist-supported congressional
candidate from Georgia, Hank Johnson, indicated that Arab Americans and
Muslim Americans are terrorists. This is how he qualified for support from
Zionists who helped him defeat Cyntia McKinney, who refused to be an AIPAC
stooge, like most members of US Congress. (Cynthia McKinney Targeted by
the Israel Lobby, AGAIN! ).
Before Hank Johnson, Senator Santorum blasted Islam
and Muslims. Earlier, the Senator from Colorado called for bombing Makkah if
the US would be attacked by Alqaeda again. Directly, following September 11
attacks, Senator Zell Miller of Georgia also called for "nuking" them.
It seems that a major qualification of those who
aspire to win Congressional seats is to have anti-Arab and anti-Islamic
attitudes, and to express them in public.
It shouldn't be a surprise then that the overwhelming
majority of members of Congress, Republicans and Democrats, voted for the US war
on Iraq without any threat posed from that beleaguered country.
It follows that the root cause of corruption in the
American political system is loyalty to Israel, which has dragged America to
fight Israeli wars to destroy the Middle East.
To save America, these Zionist stooges should be
defeated in the November elections.
ASK GEORGIA CANDIDATE TO MEET WITH MUSLIMS OVER
CAIR, August 10, 2006
CAIR is calling on American Muslims and other
people of conscience to contact Georgia congressional candidate Hank Johnson
and ask that he meet with American Muslim and Arab-American leaders to
discuss his recent remarks implying that all voters with Arabic names may be
In a televised debate with Rep. Cynthia McKinney, Johnson said: "...But
since we're talking about Middle East policy I will say that the abundant
number of contributors to Mrs. McKinney's campaign are, have Palestinian and
Arab surnames, now I could accuse her of being under the control of
terrorists." Johnson won Tuesday's runoff for Georgia's Fourth Congressional
Johnson's remarks may be viewed at:
In a letter to Johnson, CAIR Government Affairs Director Corey Saylor
"This comment seems to suggest that Arab-American and Muslim participation
in the political process has sinister connotations and that having an Arabic
name somehow indicates a propensity for violence."
Saylor requested that Johnson meet with Muslim and Arab-American community
leaders to discuss their concerns about his remarks.
IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUESTED:
Call, fax or e-mail Hank Johnson's campaign headquarters and insist
that he apologize for the remarks and agree to meet with Muslim and
Arab-American leaders within the next few days.
(Remember, remain POLITE at all times. Hostile comments hurt our efforts.
CALLS ARE BEST.)
