Palestinian Jets rookie fires back at web critics: ‘I’m no anti-Semite’
New York Post ^ | July 13, 2013 | BART HUBBUCH

Posted on 07/13/2013 8:07:37 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

Embattled Jets rookie Oday Aboushi lashed back yesterday at accusations he is a fundamentalist Muslim who associates with radicals opposed to Israel, labeling the charges “lies and smears.”

In an exclusive interview with The Post, the fifth-round pick — a Brooklyn native who is believed to be the first Palestinian-American ever drafted by an NFL team — adamantly denied charges leveled by a conservative website this week that Aboushi is anti-Semitic and uses social media to endorse what they consider Palestinian terrorist groups.

Technically, a person of Arabic descent is not, by definition, an “anti-Semitic”, as Arabs themselves are “Semitic” people. But he is no doubt of extreme anti-Israeli views.

It is just reflexive on the part of “Palestinian” Arabs to have this opinion. They have heard nothing else since very early childhood.

Problem we have in this country is the HYPHENATION of race/country,etc. You’re either an American or you’re not.

A Moslem who practices his "faith" even in the most basic fashion cannot be an American.

American Culture requires freedom of association, religion and expression. The Mohammedan (pseudo) religion expressly forbids, precludes and seeks to destroy these.

It can't get any simpler - they are The Enemy.

hehe

Ouday’s explanations read like satire, although I’m pretty sure that wasn’t intended. “I have teammates who are Jewish...”

I read the whole article, and it’s all “he said, she said.”

Is this guy a terrorist supporter? I’m inclined not to believe anything a Muslim tells us about his religion, since the Koran instructs him to lie to us.

But I do wish this reporter had bothered to do a little investigating.

Pretty likely, since there is no such thing as a "Palestinian". Where do his relatives actually come from? For example, "Palestinian" godfather Yasser Arafat was Egyptian.

Excuses, excuses, excuses...

These A-holes always say, “I am not Antisemitic”, I just hate the Zionists and would gouge their eyes out given half the chance. They always shroud their hatred of Jews and Israel by saying, “What? Me? I myself am a Semite.
This is the classic line of Islamic apologists...

Does this help his case?

In January, Aboushi posted a photo to his personal Twitter page depicting an old woman looking down while three clearly Orthodox Jews converse with one another in the background. The photo, which is attributed to the anti-Israel publication Middle East Monitor (MEM), was part of a large-scale smear campaign against the Jewish state. The caption over Aboushi’s tweet reads, “88 year-old Palestinian evicted from home in Jerusalem by Israel authorities to make room 4 Orthodox Jews.”

I looked at the title and thought there had been another NFL expansion.

By definition any hyphenated American is no American and certainly no practicing Muslim should ever be refered to as an American.

Divided loyalties do not make an American! Ad a positive aspect of your culture to American is great but there is nothing positive about Muslim culture.

Nor can they formally denounce terrorism and physical abuse of women, it seems.

Are they changing the name of the team from Jets to Jews?? We have to knock this shiite off. Besides the JETS have enough problems.

Exactly.
How can a person follow a death cult that espouses oppression, torture and murder as a way of life be compatible with being in a nation of freedom and liberty?

For a fifth round draft pick he sure is getting a lot of publicity, all of it negative. I don’t think he’s even going to make the team.
