Biden Pick for Human Rights Undersecretary Worked for Group That Claimed Jews Were Behind 9/11

Another day, another antisemitic Biden nominee.

Earlier this month, I reported on Biden's choice of Hady “I was inspired by the Palestinian intifada” Amr a Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Israel-Palestine. Now, Alana Goodman at the Free Beacon digs into another problematic Biden nominee who has issues with Jews.

Uzra Zeya nominated for undersecretary of civilian security, democracy, and human rights compiled research for a book that argues that "the Israel lobby has subverted the American political process to take control of U.S. Middle East policy"

Zeya, a former U.S. diplomat who was nominated for undersecretary for civilian security, democracy, and human rights, worked for the Washington Report and its publishing group, the American Educational Trust, in 1989 and 1990. The news outlet is staunchly anti-Israel and has published articles questioning the national loyalty of American Jews and opposing taxpayer funding to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Sean Durns, a research analyst at the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America, called the Washington Report a "fringe organization" that has "published content with anti-Semitic themes," including claims that the Mossad was behind the JFK assassination and the Sept. 11 attacks...

Zeya was listed as one of the staffers who helped compile the research for the American Educational Trust's 1990 book Stealth PACs: How Israel's American Lobby Took Control of U.S. Middle East Policy, according to the acknowledgments section.

In a section titled "Jewish Power in the Formulation of U.S. Middle East Policy," the book claims that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee gives American Jews secret marching orders on how to vote and which candidates to support financially.

Will this get a fraction of the attention that the Jewish Space Lasers stuff did? Don't bet on it.

But it needs to be made an issue. Especially as Democrats claim that they're incapable of this kind of gutter bigotry while insisting that any criticism of their bigoted nominees is bigotry.
