GoFundMe closed Abbas Hamideh’s account without an explanation.

By United with Israel Staff

Abbas Hamideh, head of  the Palestine Right to Return Coalition, an activist group that advocates for the destruction of the Jewish State and supports terrorism, blamed “criminal Zionists” for the group’s shut-down by the fundraising platform GoFundMe.

Hamideh, an associate of BDS-promoting US congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, publicized the closing on Saturday and published anti-Semitic rants on his Twitter accounty.

Here’s one:

“I applaud GoFundMe’s decision, which makes things just that bit harder for this peddler of hate, anti-Semitism, and terror support.” David Lange, founder and manager of Israellycool, who broke the story, told United With Israel.

Recognizing Tlaib’s relationship with Hamideh, Lange added, “Commiserations to congresswoman Rashida Tlaib on this latest setback for her friend”

The GoFundMe account sought to raise funds for the “Al-Awda, Right of Return Movement.” GoFundMe did not give details as to why they closed the account.

Hamideh included a post by Lange about the shutdown. The Israeli-hater defiantly wrote that his organization, which has existed in the United States for 20 years, cannot be shut down.
