NYC: Zead Ramadan, board president of the NY chapter of Hamas-linked CAIR is running for City Council

ZeadRamadan400Just what the New York City Council needs: A Palestinian Muslim who is linked to terror group Hamas via his leadership position at CAIR; is an outspoken advocate of the widely-opposed  Ground Zero Victory Mosque; as well as a Muslim extremist apologist who condemned Congressman Peter King’s hearings on radicalization in the Muslim community.


NY Daily News  Zead Ramadan, has 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 says he would be the Council’s first-ever Arab Muslim member. Ramadan, a Palestinian born in Kuwait, immigrated to Washington Heights in upper Manhattan with his family, including seven siblings.

Ramadan, who runs the X Cafe at the Shabazz Center is the president of the board of directors of the New York Chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood proxy CAIR (Council on Anti-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.


Zead Ramadan of CAIR slanders Robert Spencer, and inadvertently reveals where to find the truth about the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero.

Jihad Watch You know you must be on the right track when Hamas-linked CAIR is frantically trying to keep people from reading what you say. But in doing so, they just show people where they can find the truth. Zead Ramadan, the top dog of the New York chapter of Hamas-linked CAIR, said this to Keith Olbermann on MSNBC:

RAMADAN: “No, these are pathetic excuses for the hatred and the fearmongering that’s been, you know, spewed over the area, you got to stop the Islamization of America with Robert Spencer , who’s basically our modern day Jim Jones . And he’s poisoning people over the Internet . And, unfortunately, these people who think they’re on his side, he’s throwing him under the bus. And they’re making these ridiculous comments and they’re going out there and they’re attacking Muslims.”

Spencer writes: It’s a funny thing: Islamic jihadists, avowed Islamic jihadists operating explicitly in the name of Islam and jihad, took down the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. But CAIR’s line is that Islam and Muslims had nothing to do with 9/11, and anyone who suggests otherwise is an Islamophobic racist bigot. Yet CAIR ops like Zead Ramadan have no compunction about tarring me with responsibility for incidents I had nothing to do with, while pointing out the very real connection between Islam and Muslims and 9/11 is “hateful.”

So, who is more like Jim Jones, a mass-murdering cult leader? Me, or Zead Ramadan of Hamas-linked CAIR? CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups.

People are angry at Muslims and suspicious of them because of the thousands of jihad attacks that have taken place around the world since 9/11? Not to mention the arrogance and dishonesty of “peaceful” Islamic spokesmen like Zead Ramadan himself. And so many others.

Zead Ramadan on Iranian TV claims “Comments being made against Muslims are very eerily echoing the comments that were made against Jews by Nazis.”

Jihad Watch  Following are excerpts from an interview with Zead Ramadan, President of CAIR-NY, which aired on Press TV on May 13, 2012.

Zead Ramadan:

“I think that the United States and Americans need to realize that we have extremist elements in America, who are not Muslim, and who believe that America should only be one color, one way of living…”

“Whenever you think that America, the “land of the free,” is going to grow up and go beyond it [bigotry], more intolerant, extremist voices come out. And the easiest target has been the Muslim people.”

“In Nazi Germany, they targeted the minority, the Jewish minority, and unfortunately, it went from only philosophy, to rhetoric, to action. That is not where we want to go in America.”

In mischaracterizing the positions of anti-Sharia forces, Ramadan is trying to demonize resistance to jihad and Islamic supremacism, and deflect attention away from the real agenda of the counter-jihad movement, which is to defend freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and equality of rights for all people before the law.

Ramadan is doing the same thing with his comparison of counter-jihad rhetoric to Nazi rhetoric about the Jews. Yes, we all recall the Jewish suicide bombers of that period, as we recall the Jewish yells for holy war, the Jewish demands for the veiling of women and the stoning of homosexuals, and the Jewish burning of newspapers that published cartoons they did not like.”

Ramadan’s aim is to intimidate his hearers into thinking that criticism of Islamic supremacism leads to the gas chambers, and thus there must be no criticism of Islamic supremacism. The key difference is not only that Muslim leaders worldwide have made their intention to conquer and subjugate non-Muslims very clear, in a way that Jews never did in the run-up to the Holocaust.

This is a movement in defense of freedom and equality of rights before the law. Ramadan is lying about the alleged similarity of counter-jihad rhetoric to Nazi rhetoric about the Jews, which in reality was frankly and openly exterminationist from the beginning, while counter-jihadists have never advocated anything but the ideals enshrined in the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and have explicitly denounced violence and vigilantism.

But Zead Ramadan wants to advance his repressive and authoritarian model for society, and in order to do so he has to smear those who are resisting the imposition of that societal model. And on a TV network controlled by the Iranian mullahs, no less.

  1. Zead Ramadan: “I think that the United States and Americans need to realize that we have extremist elements in America, who are not Muslim, and who believe that America should only be one color, one way of living…”

    When a CAIR leader speaks, brace yourself to hear hate, venom and dirty LIES spew forth about hated Americans.

    We Americans are different colors. Different races. We are brothers and sisters. We ARE Americans, but CAIR infidel-hater wants people to believe a lie. CAIR infidel-haters call patriotic Americans, bigots and extremists because we believe deeply that:

    ALL people must have human rights, and ALL people must have equality before the law. This is the complete opposite of what Islam believes and the opposite of UNJUST and excessively cruel Islamic sharia law that CAIR and other Muslim Brotherhood front groups want to enslave upon Americans. IT IS SEDITION! Incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority.

    And this Muslim supremacist, freedom-hater, America-hater is running for New York City Council?

      We have a long way to go. People are waking. The bad guys know we are here and awake and letting people know what mohommedism is all about. They will push our buttons as hard as they can, they will lie, cheat, steal, get elected to office all the bad things, all the things we love will gradually become contaminated with EVIL.
      However; we on the other hand are continuing to hold the feet of the mohommedist to the fire. Come next Oct. Nov. things will start to move forward again. Events seem to be ganging up and people are getting frustrated. This is part of HIS test. Do we pass? The answer is yes, if we don’t lose our faith and give up.
      The peace treaty is winding its way up to the recipients. The Temple plans are moving forward, and awaiting the right moment, to start to build the Third Temple.
      So don’t despair things are coming together. Sometimes as slow as a snail and other times, at the speed of light.

          We have had more than 30 Terrorist attacks since 9/11, here in the States. They just haven’t been big enough to cause a national outcry. Yes, we will have more attacks, mainly in the East. At least 2 or 3 in the East. They will not be very news worthy however. So they will be swept under the carpet.

        • My guess is south Texas will be the next big bang site. Miles and miles and miles of refineries just outside Houston and the Port of houston. They are pouring over the border masquerading as Mexicans. Hamas has a large presence in Mexico and Guatemala. One entire Indian tribe in Mexico has gone muslim, the Chipas Indians and the muslim imams are down there spreading the word of satan proselytizing full throttle.

          Thanks to that throw back to the missing link Rick Perry our school books are approved by a school book review board that is populated by death cult zombies and brain dead PC idiots and so our children are being indoctrinated into the death cult at school. Small suburbs are all sportin huge honking death cult forts.

          If we try to stand up for ourselves our “dear leader” will have us shot from the roof tops and his adoring lefty fans will love him even more saying he was justified. If there is another big bang truthfully BNI It will just make the news a few day during which some air head will drone on for days about how it was because we didn’t stick our noses far enough up muslim anus’s and trot out a bunch of taquiyya spewing, clean shaven, sharia lovin CAIR stooges who will placate the brain dead masses and cry victim and vandalize their own death cult forts and slobber and cry on tv about the friggin islamaphobia while they get a ton of publicity and collect mucho insurance cash. Obama will use it as a means to finally eradicate free speech once and for all and take our protection from us leaving us as the equivalent of cattle waiting to be halal slaughtered while these savages yell allah akbar and watch us slowly bleed to death while they laugh.

          Me I am putting my faith in God having a time table per the Bible cause truthfully I think we are standing on the soft edge of a cliff looking straight into the devils eyes.

        • AM, I wouldn’t be surprised. Muslim love blowing up oil facilities, remember Kuwait? Actually, if another attack occurs, I think it will be blamed on Islam by everyone but the media, leftists, and politicians unlike 9/11, when the average person didn’t even know what Islam or Islamic jihad was.

        • Bonni, After the cruel mass slaughter of our 3,000, Muslims became the BIG FAVORITES of U.S. ruling elites. Muslim immigration and mosques increased enormously. Muslim Brotherhood organizations and operatives have been placed in power in the government.

          If we are to go by the horrible results of 9/11, ruling elites would REWARD Muslims by making them even more powerful and greatly increasing Muslim immigration.

      • ICE,
        I never truly give up, but I do occasionally, throw myself on the floor and have a good cry!

        • PINK

          Me too. Sometimes I go in the other room, go into the closet, close the doors and scream at the top of my lungs, about the STUPID’S ON STEROIDS.

  2. ramadan doesn’t know much about history because m;any Muslims aligned themselves with Hitler. Especially with the SS

  3. “Robert Spencer , who’s basically our modern day Jim Jones .”

    Spencer should sue this trashy individual for slander and defamation. Hit him with emotional distress as well. He’s comparing Spencer to a mass murdering cult leader? Intelligent and educated people know that the real comparison would be between Jim Jones and Mohammed.

    This creepy man is a typical Muslim professional victim who refuses to look at his own CULT and frantically points fingers elsewhere.

    The great unexamined factor in this issue is the FACT that Middle Easterners are very proud of lying and deceiving – that’s an old tradition, not limited to Muslims. However, Muslims have taken it to a ridiculous level. Lying to tourists – “bartering” – is a particularly popular sport in places like Egypt. Same can be said in Greece and other places reliant on a tourist economy.

    So, this man has proved himself a liar and a defamer of persons. All Spencer does is report the news from the “Muslim world” and to expose Islamic history and scriptures. He does NOT lie; nor does he provoke people to violence of any sort, whether homicide or suicide. That’s just plain DEFAMATION.

  4. “In Nazi Germany, [the islamists] targeted the minority, the Jewish minority, and unfortunately, it went from only philosophy, to rhetoric, to action. That is not where we want to go in America, [now that the tables might be turned on us].”
