After Trump victory, child tells classmates that now “all the Jews have to leave this country”

The day after Trump was elected President of the United States, a student at Burns Park Elementary school in Ann Harbor, Michigan reportedly said that “Now that Trump is president, all the Jews have to leave this country”.

This is one of a number of reports of alleged antisemitic activity that have occurred as a result of Trump’s victory.

The Principal of the school appears to be taking the issue seriously, and has circulated a short letter to the students and parents which calls for calm in the light of unrealistic claims about Trump’s presidency, as well as restating the school’s commitment to ensuring that nobody is excluded.

We will be reporting on any further information relating to this incident.

Palestinian activist says that Jews have “at best, animal rights”

Lina Allan, a pro-Palestinian activist based in Michigan, has allegedly uploaded an antisemitic video which defends stabbing “Jews”.

Despite the fact that she claims to be speaking about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Allan never talks about “Israelis”, and instead directly talks about stabbing “Jews”.

She decries those who criticise the stabbing of Jews as trying to be “muftis” and tells them to “go back to watching Turkish Soap operas”.

Finally, she claims that even if it was “haram” to stab Jews, they still wouldn’t have human rights, but would have “at best, animal rights”.

The video was removed from Youtube, but was recovered by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

Shockingly, it has been reported that Allan has represented the U.S. State Department at an official event in Jordan in 2012.

American rockstar Ted Nugent posts antisemitic conspiracy on Facebook

Rock musician Ted Nugent has posted an antisemitic image on Facebook showing photographs of Jewish legislators and leaders who support gun control, labelling each photo with Israeli flags including comments such as “Jew York City mayor Mikey Bloomberg”. The image is titled: “Who is really behind gun control”

In a comment on the image, Nugent wrote: “Know these punks. They hate freedom, they hate good over evil, they would deny us the basic human right to self defense & to KEEP & BEAR ARMS while many of them have tax paid hired ARMED security!”

The Anti-Defamation League responded: “Making the outrageous suggestion that Jews are behind gun control, is nothing short of conspiratorial antisemitism. Regardless of one’s views on gun control, this kind of scapegoating of an entire religious group is completely unacceptable and completely divorced from reality.”

Michigan pro-Palestinian activist says arguing against stabbing of Jews is “at best” like defending animal rights

A Jordanian pro-Palestinian activist based in Michigan has told her YouTube audience that arguing against the stabbing of Jews by Palestinian terrorists is like defending animal rights “at best”.

Lina Allan told viewers that anyone saying that stabbing Jews is forbidden in Islam (haram) should “stop interfering,” admonishing them: “Let me tell you that at best, you are representing animal rights – not human rights, but at best, animal rights. Let me tell you, even animals would not object to this if they could talk…Spare us your views, and go back to watching Turkish soap operas. It would be better if you didn’t talk about something you don’t understand.”
