Khizr Khan, the father of a soldier killed in Iraq and well known for his feud with Donald Trump, will appear at an event in Dearborn in a few weeks with Amr Moussa, an Egyptian leader whose rise can be traced to his immense hatred of Israel.
Moussa has refused to visit the Holocaust Museum, said Hamas was not a terrorist group, said Egypt shouldn’t respond to the 9/11 attacks if Israel was a part of the coalition, and is sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood.
The event takes place on September 29th at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center in Dearborn.
According to the New Republic, well known as a liberal publication, Moussa is an “anti-Israel demagogue.”
They write that “Moussa owes his startling political ascendance primarily to one thing: his shameless exploitation of anti-Israel demagoguery for political gain.”
Moussa, long hostile to America and Israel, even refused to visit the Holocaust Memorial. He was forced to backtrack after extreme pressure from the global community.
“As Egypt’s top diplomat, Moussa immediately projected an adversarial approach toward the United States and Israel. One of the first issues he handled was the Madrid Peace Conference, which the George H.W. Bush administration hoped would help shape a new regional order following the Persian Gulf War. When Israel insisted that the administration push for the repeal of a U.N. General Assembly Resolution that equated Zionism with racism as a precondition for joining the peace conference, Moussa demanded that the issue be tabled until after the conference, and Egypt was ultimately absent from the vote. Later, when Israel pursued improved ties with Arab states following the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993, Moussa argued that full Arab normalization should occur only after the final exchange of territory.
Then, prior to his first official trip to Israel in August 1994, Moussa gratuitously sparked outrage by indicating that he would refuse to visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial. He eventually relented under intense diplomatic pressure but, even then, declined to enter the Hall of Remembrance, where he would have had to wear a yarmulke.”
Moussa also “refused to participate in any anti-terrorism campaign that included Israel” after the 9/11 attacks.
Newsweek writes that Moussa “
They also highlight his radical views.
“Moussa became one of Israel’s most relentless detractors in Egypt. He confronted Israelis at conferences and attack-ed them in television interviews. His tirades even made him the subject of a hit song: Egyptian crooner Shaaban Abdel Rahim’s 2000 “Ana Bakra Israel”—“I Hate Israel.” After chanting the title phrase over and over, the singer adds: “But I love Amr Moussa.”
Moussa also said that Hamas is not a terrorist organization…
Also disturbing: Moussa is friendly with the Muslim Brotherhood.
According to reports:
“The prominent leader of the opposition National Salvation Front (NSF), Amr Moussa, has met with the first deputy of the Muslim Brotherhood’s guide, Khairat al-Shater, during a dinner hosted by the head of the Ghad el-Thawra Party, Ayman Nour, at his residence.
The meeting has sparked unprecedented controversy, as it was arranged and held without the knowledge of the NSF’s leadership. Criticism has been even more prevalent, as Nour’s media office denied the meeting, while Moussa confirmed it.”
