Maher Abdel Qader, a Palestinian anti-Semitic activist and current vice president of AI Engineers in New York, has strong ties and has campaigned with members of the Democratic Party, specifically with Rashida Tlaib, a member of the so-called “squad” to which Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also belongs.
An investigation by Fox News revealed that in 2016 Maher Abdel Qader shared an article on Facebook where he called Jews “satanic” and has criticized the United States’ support for Israel.
“Despite Abdel Qader’s long history of antisemitism, he hosted multiple fundraisers for New York City Mayor Eric Adams dating back to last year when he was a candidate, including a “selfie” with Adams at a breakfast earlier this month on his Instagram account,” Fox News reviewed.
There are several members of the Democratic Party
The media outlet added that “two weeks ago, Abdel Qader was on the host committee of a virtual fundraiser for Rev. Jesse Jackson’s son, Jonathan Jackson, who is running for the House seat in Illinois’ First Congressional District.”
The list of Democrats who have had a link to the activist also involves Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, who is running for re-election. “Last month, the Palestinian activist posted several pictures on his Instagram page from the New York City fundraiser, including a couple with him and Ellison.”
