New York Jets Draft Pick Tweets Against Israel

ODOday Aboushi leads a double life. On the one hand, he is an American football player with professional-level athletic skills. On the other, he is a fundamentalist Muslim with radical associations and a heritage that pushes him towards a destructive world of violence and hate.

When the New York Jets football team chose Oday Aboushi with the eighth pick of the fifth round of the April 2013 NFL Draft (141st pick overall), the organization knew that it was getting an elite player who could wreak havoc on the field – one of the top offensive linemen in the entire draft. At 6-foot-5, 310 pounds, no doubt, Abousi is an imposing figure. What the Jets didn’t know, though, was the type of havoc he could potentially cause off the field.

Although Aboushi was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, he proudly refers to himself as a “Palestinian-American.” His parents both arrived in the U.S. from the town of Beit Hanina in the West Bank. The first time he had been to the area was during his freshman year of college. In an article published by ESPN, the sports network stated about Aboushi’s trip, “It was a completely different world, although filled with the same kinds of people he knew growing up in Brooklyn.”

One long-time friend of the family is Linda Sarsour, a rabid anti-Israel activist, who has Hamas-related family serving prison sentences in Israel and has herself been questioned by U.S. authorities. Less than one year ago, Sarsour posted on her Twitter account, “Nothing is creepier than Zionism.” In a May 2012 tweet, she claimed that the al-Qaeda “Underwear Bomber,” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who plotted to blow up a civilian aircraft, was actually a CIA operative.

When Aboushi was chosen by the Jets in the draft, Sarsour used that same Twitter account she placed her fanatic missives on to post two dozen messages about it, including Twitter conversations with Aboushi. She also tweeted photos of herself with Aboushi.

Sarsour holds the position of Executive Director of the Arab American Association of New York (AAANY). Oday Aboushi’s sister, Tahanie, who also uses Twitter to attack Israel, is a lawyer for the organization. Together with the Executive Director of CAIR-NY, Muneer Awad, Tahanie Aboushi condemned ads speaking out against Islamic jihad – ads which would soon be placed throughout New York City’s subway stations.

Awad, like Sarsour, is obsessed with Israel and has used Twitter to attack the Jewish state. He tweeted “GOP kissing Israel’s ass hurts Israel,” and condemned a speech made by President Barack Obama in praise of Israel as “racist and untrue.” For Awad to state such things makes sense, given the fact that the organization he works for, CAIR, has its roots with Hamas.

And like Sarsour, CAIR-NY went out of its way to praise the Jets drafting of Aboushi. The group called the signing “an American dream story.”

Far from being an American dream, Oday Aboushi has exhibited this exact type of extremism. He too has targeted Israel with his Twitter account, one tweet even having anti-Semitic overtones. This past January, he posted a photo depicting an old woman looking down while three clearly Orthodox Jews talk to each other in the background. The caption reads, “88 year-old Palestinian evicted from home in Jerusalem by Israel authorities to make room 4 Orthodox Jews.”

The photo contains the logo of Middle East Monitor (MEM), an anti-Zionist publication based in England. The picture has recently been used in a smear campaign against Israel and her observant Jewish citizens. Aboushi chose to be one of the smear merchants.

On April 19, one week before the NFL Draft, Aboushi wrote a tweet exalting a fundraising dinner sponsored by Islamic Relief (IR), an organization with numerous ties to terrorism. He wrote, “Beautiful NJ fundraiser event for the kids of Palestine in refugee camps.” The affair was held in Hasbrouk Heights, New Jersey and was titled, ‘A Night for Palestine.’

In May 2006, Israel labeled Islamic Relief a front for Hamas after arresting the group’s Gaza program manager, Ayaz Ali, for providing “funds and assistance to various Hamas institutions and organizations.” Ali admitted that he had cooperated with local Hamas operatives.

As well, in 1999, IR collected and sent more than $6 million to Chechen rebels with ties to al-Qaeda. The same year, IR received $50,000 from Human Concern International (HCI), a charity that the U.S. Department of Treasury described as a “Bin Laden front.” Shortly after the September 11 attacks, IR itself was investigated by the Treasury Department as a possible source of funding for al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.”

Besides Twitter, Oday Aboushi also has a Facebook account. Currently in the ‘Likes’ section of his Facebook page is the imam of the Islamic Center of Temecula Valley (ICTV), Mohamed Mabrouk. Mabrouk was previously the imam of the Islamic Society of Greater Lansing (ISGL). Both of these mosques have ties to terrorism.

Last March, ICTV held a conference and banquet at the Anaheim Hilton, titled, ‘Muhammad (pbuh): The Prophet for Our Times.’ The event was co-sponsored by Islamic Relief. Among the speakers for the function was the imam of Brooklyn’s al-Taqwa mosque, Siraj Wahhaj. Wahhaj had previously been named by the U.S. government as an “unindicted co-conspirator” for a trial dealing with the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Wahhaj had been linked to the bombmaker of the attack, Clement Rodney Hampton-El, and during the trial, he was a character witness for the spiritual leader of the attack, Omar Abdel Rahman, whom Wahhaj has openly praised.

According to the January 2006 ISGL Constitution, which is located on the official ISGL website, the ownership of the mosque property was “entrusted” to the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT). And according to the ISGL website, ISGL is a subsidiary of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). In 2007 and 2008, both NAIT and ISNA were named by the U.S. Justice Department as “unindicted co-conspirators” for two federal trials dealing with the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas. ISNA, as well, was co-founded by Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) convicted terrorist Sami al-Arian.

Oday Aboushi, himself, is an observant Muslim. While playing football for the University of Virginia, during the month of Ramadan, he would fast every day from sunrise to sunset. This bit of information has made its way into a number of articles written about Aboushi, in admiration for his commitment to his religion. But what cannot be praised or tolerated are the radical behavior and associations that Aboushi has embraced.

During one of his post-draft interviews, Aboushi mentioned how each of the teams interested in picking him sat him in a room and “grilled” him with questions for up to a quarter-of-an-hour. He said that these “formal meetings” were attended by all the team staff, including athletic director, head coach and owner.

At their meeting, either the Jets didn’t ask the right questions about Aboushi’s personal background and affiliations which might conflict or cause damage to the Jets’ image or Aboushi didn’t answer the questions honestly. The only other possibility is that the team only cares about Aboushi the exceptional athlete and nothing else.

In April 2009, the Jets front office contacted the NFL to ask that the date of its home opener be moved, as it was going to coincide with the Jewish high holiday of Rosh Hashanah. The team did the right thing to complain on behalf of their Jewish fan base, and they need to do the same in the case of their Islamist draft pick.

As of now, Aboushi’s name sits atop the Jets website roster. How long he will remain there is up to management.

      Blah, blah, blah. More blather about some fictional occupation, when in fact, it is Palestine that is the fiction. Those savages should be glad that Israel is there to provide civilization for them, and they should also be glad that the Israelis show so much patience.

          Not really. Just speaking the truth.

          Muslims are responsible for over 90% of all terror attacks in the world. So, looks like you are the terrorist, Suq.

        • Lan Astaslem

          the truth hearts suk – moslems are bloodthirsty savages – they are constantly proving this to the world with islamoterror

          Well you make no doubt to the truth that you muslims are on a collision course with us western infidels, would you like to make a guess on who comes out on top and survives and who perishes? As for fakestine? You effing savages are lucky that I am not in charge, for the first time one of you dirt worshippers fired a rocket or mortar you would no long exist, I would give you Carthage with a hearty good riddance.

          And the 3,000 dead in New York was how long ago? Or the 120,000 in Syria was when?

        • Mary Sue

          The Canaanites were sick, perverse, immoral babykillers, and God ordered judgment upon them in a one-time deal.

          Canaanites had plenty of warning to stop doing what they were doing, but they did not.

        • No dhimmi tool

          Okay. Can we tell you to get over the Crusades then, since it's been many centuries?

          It's been decades since Israel was formed – get over it, cry baby.

          Oh, and the Canaanites were also slaughtered by influxes of Arabs who now call themselves "Palestinians." The "Palestinians" are not the original inhabitants either, so now what?

          Maybe we should bring back the Neanderthals – after all, they were in the area first.

    • catherineinpvb

      Hmm; have you commented on this story yet?

      (The truth is 'fundamental Islam' and nazism' are 'bood brothers'; and no doubt; there are some innocent Palestinians who suffering their sword. That said; have you seen this story; here at Front Page as well?)

      // Israel’s Tazpit News Agency this morning reported that hundreds of residents of the Gush Etzion area were “astounded” to find a Nazi flag flying next to a mosque in the Palestinian town of Beit Ummar.//

      How beautiful it would be; if Islamists could stop hating 'long enough' to enjoy life; and living; and Freedom. Alas; with Muslim Mama's, dressing their babies as terrorists; and teaching 'nursery rhymes of hate'; just among other Islamic educational MO's; it is altogether; less than likely.

      • NostraChronus

        so bulldozing homes and randomly strafing civilian areas aren't terrorist actions?

        • Mary Sue

          LOLwhut.

          Bulldozing terrorists' homes is not terrorism; it is demolition.

          Civilian areas are not "randomly strafed!" Terrorists hide among the civilians in contravention of the Geneva Convention!

    • http://1389blog.com 1389AD

      With Palestinian descent, the odds are close to 100%.

  • David M

    He got his hatred the moment he was born. His "Palestinian" parents, his mosque and his religion are responsible for his backwardness, hatred and antisemitism. It was wrong to let his parents ( all parents from West Bank, Gaza, Egypt, Lebanon, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan,…………) come to America. Islam is not compatible with Western civilization and gives its followers nothing but hatred, backwardness and savagery. Amazingly ex-Muslims are peaceful and they warn for the danger Islam poses for the West.

    • Ibin Yerkinoff

      spoken like a true Anti-Semitic

Is this the best you can do with your time and the gift of life?

    • Boots

      I love how Islamophobia is used to dismiss any argument regarding political Islam as flawed. Instead of name calling and attempting to marginalize Mr Kaufman why don't you prove him wrong? My bad. That would require effort on your part. It's much easier to name call than it is to debate. BTW I don't fear Muslims. I don't care what Muslims do as long they aren't trying (or succeeding) to kill me, or trying to turn my wife or daughters into the property of Muslim males, or imposing 6th Century values on our society through Sharia. I guess in your narrow mind it's Islamophobic to value freedom.

    • Erik

      Did you even read it?

    • Pontotoc Bill

      Islamophobia? It isn't Islamophobia when they really are trying to kill you.

      The fact that this guy is a follower of the pig faced Moohammed who commands all Muslims to wage perpetual war against all non-Muslims is proof enough for me that this Jet player is an extremist.

    • Mary Sue

      If he hates Israel, he's an extremist. End of f***ing story.

    • SoCalMike

      You suffer from Stockholm syndrome.
      Making nice to malignant Jew haters is rooted in your psychology.
      This drivel you utter is anti rational and much of it is what Freud called Projection.

    • catherineinpvb

      If you do not experience the pangs or better; the pain; of Islamaphobia; given the 'written record' of abominations offered up in Allah's name – and as we speak; then you have only your PC; mind-numbing ignorance to blame. You probably believe that Thomas Jefferson had a Koran; because he was a curious admirer of Muhammed's spiritual dictums?

      Never has a such a perversion of truth; garnered such a 'religious fervor'/admiration among those a-moral; and a-religious;; yet nonetheless; disciple minded. The 'simpatico' of today's 'Leftist Faithful' – then, as now – insist on protecting the very worst; that Islam brings. These same appear lost; as to how to define civilization.

      Of course; we know that Everything Changes. . .and 'Nothing Changes'.

      And so it is; Hitler was not only an admirer of Islam – he left a 'Legacy of ultra; uber. . .'debased hate' as did his co-conspirator; the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and Arafat's Uncle; Amin al Husseini. Both Hitler and Amin; were of ONE mind, when it came to seeking permanent 'solutions' to their perceived, Jewish problem.

      Message to 'Progressives' aka 'Socialist' – whose name rises from Hitler's Socialist Party of Germany; aka; the 'Nazi Party':

      A more efficient collaboration of the two – fundamental Islam; and 'nazism' – the Islamist; and the 'National Socialist' – could not have been, a more natural fit.

      That said; you freaking Libs; figure it out! The past, of this Progressive Party; IS it's future; and that of all the rest of ' America' as well; that 'is'; IF you do not wake up and smell the stench of totalitarianism/fascism in your 'Democratic'/Socialist aka Progressive Party; which no matter the name; has a very ugly history; that is determinedly repeating itself.

      This meeting of the minds; was – and 'is' still – what it is.

    • Socrates

      I will copy and paste from a sensible response by Donald Lappe: "The real meat of the article's attempt to tie Oday Aboushi to extremism is a Twitter conversation between him and Linda Sarsour, as well as two pictures of the two together. The Twitter conversation consists of Sarsour congratulating Oday Aboushi on being drafted by the Jets and teasing him about needing to change his Twitter bio. The pictures are of Oday Aboushi and Linda Sarsour standing together."
      http://www.sportsmedia101.com/newyorkjets/2013/05

      I feel no shame in lampooning and parodying an author who makes such a shameful accusation on weak links. You really need to do something better with your life; I feel so sorry that this is your claim to fame.

    The land of Israel is Jewish land, not hairy, ugly, savage Muslim land! Israel is a beacon of democracy and justice in the darkness of the Middle East, America's only true friend in that entire region. Never once has an Israeli questioned or violated women's rights, unlike Muslims, who live in oppresion and terror, who at most only give the illusion of assimilation through taqqiya, one of the pillars of Islam, to carry out Islam's only purpose, jihad. This stain on the history of American Sports should be deported to the god forsaken desert that he and all Muslims came out of.

    And his teammates better REALIZE that HE HATES THEM ALL,despite Locker room TAQYIA.&
    the above applies to practice also.

  • E.J.

    Oday Aboushi was also hand-chosen by the Obama administration to attend an event celebrating Muslim-American athletes; you don't think they closely vetted him and his family? If you knew a thing about this kid and his family you would know him and his family are nice, hard-working people who have persevered against the odds. There isn't a more respected, well-liked family in all of Staten Island- and not just among the Arab or Muslim community. Your 'points' are farfetched, unproven, outlandish and downright laughable… your islamophobia is showing bud.

    • AnOrdinaryMan

      Who cares that he was hand-chosen by Obama? Since Obama doesn't keep very good company, that doesn't say much for Aboushi. And no, Obama doesn't care about vetting anyone. You say, "him and his family are nice, hard-working people who have persevered against the odds." What do they work at?
      What do they do for a living? Tell us…..please.

And finally, you said " our names would be linked with racists, slavery, sexism and imperialism"… all that is ISLAM you liar( your Taqiah is showing). and last but not least, YOU are the despicable one laddie for coming to a Christian country to commit jihad.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    On the other, he is a fundamentalist Muslim with radical associations and a heritage that pushes him towards a destructive world of violence and hate.

    Dream on. He is a mainstream orthodox Muslim and his associations are not in the least radical or extremist, as jihad, which is holy fighting in the cause of Allah for the establishment of Islam is the highest pillar of Islam and also a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all Muslims. In the Islamic world what would make him a radical and an extremist would be if he supported Israel, as it would also make him a blasphemous apostate and blasphemous apostates, per the texts and tenets of Islam, must be executed.

    Far from being an American dream, Oday Aboushi has exhibited this exact type of extremism.

    Extremism…really? Come on; please by all means point to just one Muslim that doesn't also condemn Israel at every opportunity. Thus, with respect to Islamic society, what makes the criticism of Israel and all other infidel states, for that matter, remotely extremists? Talk about a writer without a clue.

    In any event, jihad, both of the violent variety and of the astronomically far more prevalent non-violent variety, is a holy obligation incumbent upon all Muslims, as jihad is the highest pillar of Islam. Hence, all Muslims must wage jihad in one form or another. Otherwise, they could be deemed blasphemous apostates and be executed.

    In fact, if the fallacy of so-called moderate Muslims wasn't a political correct fantasy and they really did exist, they would all be executed for being blasphemous apostates.

    Indeed, the drafting of the stealth jihadists Aboushi by the New York Jets is in fact stealth jihad, as it is Muslim infiltration and Islamization. It's part of Islam's long-term strategic stealth jihad to demographically conquer America.

    Shame on FPM for printing such slander against a great kid. He held a Sandy relief event on Staten Island for all people, Muslims, Christians, and Jews. He gave away clothes, footballs, and food to the needy. He comes from a wonderful family and is such a nice boy. Shame. Shame. Shame on you.

    • aprilnovember811

      It's Taqiya. He's lying to the infidels. If he tweeted against Israel, and held Sandy relief for Muslims, Jews, and Christians, it's all a front. That's all. When he retires from the NFL and hasn't killed anyone, or is tied to anybody that has, I'll believe it.

      Keeping up appearances, that's all he's doing. Sure he can pretend to be a nice person for the sake of taquiyya. But if he were in Palestine right now? The facade would lift.

      Muslims are duty-bound to give alms, so that's not any indication. They are also duty bound to engage in Jihad.

It claims in the first paragraph "he is a fundamentalist Muslim with radical associations and a heritage that pushes him towards a destructive world of violence and hate" and does nothing to show anything promoting violence or hate that Oday has done. It uses a bunch of flimsy accusations and guilt by association to other people. If the article was about the AAANY, CAIR, or Linda Sarsour it would at least be slightly plausible. The ad he was against referred to Palestinians as savages and the MTA did not even want to allow the ad to be posted due to it's offensive hateful content. I will be contacting Mr. Aboushi and see if he would like us to proceed with litigation against this website and sue for damages. The looks of this site leads me to believe it would be a waste of time it doesn't look like a site anyone would bother to read or advertise on.

      If he protested the ad, he's an idiot, at the very least.

      The ad was not offensive or hateful.

      Oh so you're an ambulance chaser? Are you a selfhating anti-Israel leftist Jew perchance?

    must be nice to have a byline under which you can post racist opinions – disgraceful 'article'

      Says the person that has no idea what racism actually is
      (hint: the actual racism comes from Oday trashtalking about Israel/Jews)

    Read Winston Churchill on Islam. Brilliant and nothing's changed.

    Yet another trashy, classless person who is undeserving of all the adulation and financial reward of organized sports.

    I don’t see this one turning out well. What happens when he gets cut? Will someone get bombed?

    Many comments seem to conflate the actions of a few Muslims to somehow mean all Muslims are that way. It would be like saying that because the author of this article is a racist scoundrel that all journalists are that way. Thankfully, this author is like the terrorists who claim to be Muslim: he doesn't have a clue what he's talking about, does not represent a larger class of people, and makes the world a scarier place with his drivel.

    Honestly, this is just sad. How can we possibly judge someone like this? How would you people like it if I came to your houses, and criticized you because you were jewish or Christian. If America was based on this, we would get nowhere. Would you all stop going to the stores you like just because the cashier wasn’t to your exact taste of religion? You say he’s going to bring down America, but it’s these negative people who are going to bring it down. There is always judgment based on other actions. Did he do something that required all this negativity? Did he, besides practicing his religion, a right in this country, do something to harm our nation? No. Like us, he was born and raised here. And no I am not a Muslim standing up for him. In fact, I’m actually a Christian….but this makes me sick.

    How is a Palestinian going to be anti-Semitic? Palestinians are a Semitic people. You Zionists are the racists extremists.
