For someone who is trying very hard to “reimagine” himself in the eyes of Georgia voters as someone who is a friend of Israel, Rev. Raphael Warnock (D), didn’t do himself any favors by embracing the support of anti-Semites and one of the most anti-Semitic organization in the world.
Noted anti-Semites and BDS supporters US Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) – along with over-zealous anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour, headlined a fundraising event in support of Warnock hosted by the wholly anti-Semitic Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Georgia Muslim Voter Project.
“You, the Muslim community in Georgia, by yourselves, can literally swing this entire election and send two Democrats to the US Senate, which makes Kamala Harris the deciding voter,” Sarsour screeched.
Sarsour was one of the original founders of the anti-Trump Women’s March. She is also an ardent supporter of BDS movement – Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions – which targets all things Israel.
“I feel like you all have this opportunity, that has just been given, almost like in a gift, that has been given to all of you to represent the Muslim community nationally,” Tlaib said.

The support of the “Squad” members and Sarsour are particularly troublesome to Warnock because he is in a struggle to court pro-Israel and Jewish supporters in Georgia.
Switching from Reverend Warnock – a Black Liberation theologian, to candidate Warnock finds him running from his past statements that compared Israel to apartheid South Africa. Other statements he has made accuse Israeli soldiers of shooting unarmed Palestinians “like birds of prey.”
He has even gone as far as to offend just about every other dogma except the Islamic religion and those who practice the Jeremiah Wright promoted Black Liberation Theology by insisting Jesus Christ was a “poor Palestinian.”
While those who are attempting to spread cover for Warnock are describing last Sunday’s event as a nonpartisan “get-out-the-vote effort,” the organizers utilized the ActBlue campaign donation portal for their event.
ActBlue is a dedicated fundraising platform for Democrat candidates and Marxist-Progressive organizations.
That the speakers – Tlaib, Omar and Sarsour – were not shy about pumping up Warnock leaves little doubt to the goal of the events’ producers.
CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the terror-finance trial against the Holy Land Foundation and its former officials.
