Candidate Joe Kaufman has been especially critical of Hamas-enabling C.A.I.R.'s ascendancy in Florida, and Rep. Schultz' selling Obama's pro-Palestinian advocacy (at the expense of American pro-Israelists) for fundraising from alleged Islamist Muslims.
Democrat National Committee chair, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz reportedly was scheduled to keynote a fundraising banquet of EMERGE USA on April 21. The group is headed by South Florida attorney Khurrum Wahid, who has a history of associating with organizations linked to al-Qaida and Hamas.
"There was a miscommunication, she is not speaking to the organization. We never agreed to do a fundraiser, nor this event," Wasserman Schultz spokesman Jonathan Beeton told Sunshine State News. He did not offer an explanation. (Sunshine State News)
Joe Kaufman, a Republican candidate for Wasserman Schultz's seat, said, "I'm happy she decided to cancel, but she shouldn't have accepted in the first place.
"This is more evidence of her not truly being what she appears to be in public. She cultivates a persona as a wonderful pro-Israel character and plays up her Jewishness, but then she gets involved with an organization that targets Jews and Christians," Kaufman said of the hyper-partisan congresswoman who also chairs the Democratic National Committee.
"That's anti-Jewish and anti-American," Kaufman asserted.
Joe Kaufman feels that the domestic Islamist threat growing under the Obama administration deserves fortifying within the House of Representatives which his experience can afford the country.
A Boca synagogue B'nai Torah has delivered Jewish voters to the Obama campaign since 2008. Here, Bob Kunst of Shalom Int'l protests the synagogue hosting an appeal by then candidate Sen. Obama for their donors.
Alan Bergstein, a retired NYC school principal, discusses the phenomenon of originally liberal Northeasterners that retire in Florida needing to adapt to the changing dynamics of the political parties and the demands of maintaining America under the strains of Obama's far-leftism and contra-Zionism.
Mr. Bergstein was refused entry to a B'nai Torah appearance of Obama-appointee, Amb. Susan Rice by the synagogue elders.
Mr. Kaufman lays-out his points about Debbie Wasserman-Schultz denying scheduling, then through his (with co-author Beila Rabinowitz) exposing it, Schultz cancelled her campaign fundraiser with an Islamist with terror-ties.
DNC Debbie's Islamist Lies
In editorial written by EMERGE USA head Khurrum Wahid, which was printed in the South Florida Sun Sentinel, rebuts the statement made by the Wasserman Schultz camp. According to Wahid, Wasserman Schultz “agreed to speak at the banquet of EMERGE USA” – and then later backed out after what he describes as the “character assassination” of his group took place. [Of course, this alleged character assassination refers to our original investigative piece on this subject.]
For Debbie Wasserman Schultz to fabricate a story about her participation at the EMERGE banquet like she did, she must have considered the issue a very serious one. Indeed, for someone who publicly flaunts her Jewish identity as she does, it cannot help her to be seen as being an assistant fundraiser for a group led by those who appear to have animosity towards Jews and Israel.
Wasserman Schultz should never have agreed to help raise money and be the keynote speaker for such a radical group, and it is unfortunate and disturbing that it took criticism from these authors and others for her to finally decide not to do it.It is even more unfortunate that she would lie about her involvement.
The Jewish Federations of N. America facilitated Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz opening plenary address at their annual General Assembly to electioneer for herself, the Democrat Party, and to attempt to whitewash 3-years of Obama's demonstrated animus towards Israel.
In addition to Kaufman, five other Republicans are seeking the GOP nomination in the 23rd Congressional District. They are Gineen Bresso, Ozzie DeFaria, Juan Eliel Garcia, Joe Goldner and Karen Harrington.
