Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden is promoting an endorsement from a leading Muslim-American Anti-Israel group funded by liberal billionaire George Soros. Emgage, the anti-Semite group consists of Muslim leaders who have accused Jews of dual loyalty to America, defended terrorist groups, and even collaborated with Muslim-Brotherhood affiliated organizations.
The Emgage letter was signed by local, state, and federal officials that have promoted Israel boycotts such as Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has come under fire in the past for her anti-Semitic remarks. Biden said he was “honored” to receive the endorsement.
In Biden’s appreciative message he claimed he was inspired by Emgage’s “one million Muslim voters campaign.” The campaign is a nod to the anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan’s Million Man March in D.C. Emgage has praised Farrakhan in the past.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
While Biden has vowed to govern as a pro-Israel president, the Democratic Party’s alliance with anti-Israel leaders has complicated Biden’s message, as evidenced by his pledge to confront Israel over the building of Jewish homes in disputed areas. The Washington Free Beacon reported on concerns Biden would be pulled left from pro-Israel voters earlier this month, when it was revealed that Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris, worked with the Council on American-Islamic Relations, one of the nation’s top anti-Israel groups and advocates for boycotts of the Jewish state.
“With Joe Biden, we will have a seat at the table and will address and heal the deep wounds that fracture our country,” the Muslim officials wrote in their letter to supporters of Emgage PAC, which claims to be the largest Muslim PAC in the country.
Rep. André Carson (D., Ind.), one signatory, has refused to denounce his ties to Farrakhan and would not rule out future meetings with the anti-Semitic leader.
Former representative Keith Ellison (D., Minn.), now the Minnesota attorney general, is also a Farrakhan supporter. “Keith would go on all the time about ‘Jewish slave traders,’” associates recalled of Ellison when he was an activist at the University of Minnesota in the 1980s.
Republicans have been skeptical over Biden’s claims he will act as a pro-Israel president claiming the former vice president will most likely appease anti- Israel leaders. Over the weekend a group of prominent Orthodox Jewish leaders penned an open letter of endorsement for Trump. In the letter, the leaders praised Trump’s efforts to keep houses of worship open throughout the Coronavirus pandemic.
