Here’s a little bit more from the moderate Muslims leading the way in the USA. Sofian Zakkout is an important Muslim leader from South Florida who likes to pretend he’s all about peace and love when he speaks in English… but as soon as he starts spouting off in Arabic he begins promoting racism, bigotry and violence.
A recent article in Front Page Mag, reporter Joe Kaufman rehashes the many times this peaceful Muslim leader has said disgusting and violent things about Jewish people.
When South Florida Muslim leader Sofian Zakkout wants people to believe he is a man of peace, he speaks or writes it in English. But when Zakkout wants to show his true colors and curse Jews or call for violence against people, he does so in Arabic. This month, Zakkout’s real self came out once again, as he labeled Jews the “grandsons of monkeys and pigs,” while commemorating the 28th anniversary of Hamas…
Because of Zakkout’s position of leadership, when he makes a statement, it needs to be taken seriously. In English, he will tell media outlets about how he is a man of peace, about how he was, for years, the co-chair of the Jewish Arab Dialogue Association (JADA). In Arabic, he will make statements which are quite the opposite, supporting and inciting hatred and terror.
Kaufman then proceeds to detail more than half a dozen different occasions where Zakkout has said nauseatingly racist things about Jews while calling for abhorrent acts of violence against them. Kaufman also offers proof of each and every occasion of which he complains, while pointing out that there are many other examples of Zakkout’s disgusting behavior that are left unmentioned.
Sofian Zakkout obviously believes there is an issue with the statements he makes on social media, or he would not write them in Arabic, a language that the vast majority of Americans do not read, speak or understand. By concealing these quotes within Arabic – quotes which are bigoted and violent in nature – Zakkout is shining a light on himself in a way which seems to suggest he is a danger to society.
Combine that with the fact that he organizes pro-Hamas rallies; that he posts images and videos of Hamas, Hezbollah and white supremacist David Duke onto social media; and that he privately views broadcasting networks and channels which are affiliated with terrorists and are pro-violence; and you have a ticking time-bomb waiting to go off.
Who knows what else “Brother Sofian” is hiding, apart from the feelings of hate and rage which he attempts to shield from our view?
