Hate Crime Task Force Makes Disturbing Claim About Murdered Israelis

via NBC News

Zainab Chaudry, a member of a Maryland task force on hate crimes, has come under scrutiny for sharing antisemitic social media posts, including comparing Israel to Nazi Germany and questioning the authenticity of Israeli babies killed in a Hamas attack.

Despite the posts, she has remained on the commission, sparking controversy.

“I will never be able to understand how the world summoned up rage for 40 fake Israeli babies while completely turning a blind eye to 3,000 real Palestinian babies,” Chaudry posted online. (Trending: Biden Baffles Thanksgiving Guests With Bizarre Joke)

“The views and opinions of any individual Commission member do not reflect those of either the Maryland Commission on Hate Crime Response and Prevention or the Attorney General,” said spokesperson Jennifer Donelan.

“We understand that there are many viewpoints regarding current events in the Middle East. The Commission will do its best to explore the impact of those events on our community, and to determine how best to address escalations in hate and bias incidents across the state.”

“Just as we urge others to do, the Commission will identify ways in which we can foster productive and empathetic dialogue amongst ourselves that leads to mutual understanding. We, like the rest of the world, must first talk to one another and, most importantly, listen to one another as we work toward the goals of peace and tolerance.”

Chaudry defended her actions, accusing the Israeli government of genocidal intentions against Palestinians and emphasizing her condemnation of civilian killings.

“The Israeli prime minister has analogized the bombing of Gaza to an ancient biblical story about the total genocide of a city, [and] declared that there are no innocent civilians in Gaza, the Israel defense minister has justified starving Palestinian civilians by calling them ‘human animals,’ the Israeli military spokesman has said that the aim of their bombing campaign is destruction rather than accuracy. Multiple Israeli ministers have called for the ethnic cleansing of Gaza, with one even calling the ongoing war a ‘Nakba 2023,'” Chaudry said.

“I strongly and unapologetically condemn Benjamin Netanyahu’s far-right, racist government for repeatedly making such genocidal threats towards the Palestinian people and killing over 13,000 Palestinians in Gaza, most of them women and children murdered in their homes. Unlike many of the Israeli government’s most extreme supporters, I recognize that killing any civilians is wrong, which is why my office has repeatedly condemned the killing of both Israeli and Palestinian civilians,” she added.

“There is no conflict between condemning the Israeli government’s genocidal war crimes overseas and standing up against all forms of hate here at home, including antisemitism, Islamophobia and anti-Palestinian racism.”

“False smears from anti-Palestinian and anti-Muslim extremists will not stop me from standing up for justice here and abroad.”

This has raised concerns about her role on the commission and its mission to address hate crimes in Maryland.
