A US-based professor spews hatred only a day after the attack!

Abeer Kayed, a former adjunct faculty member in the Department of World Languages at Howard University, Washington D.C., said that “the media” tries to distort the motive behind the Pittsburgh synagogue attack, which she claims was “strictly political” and “not a hate crime.”

Kayed further alleged that t“the power of the Zionist lobby” is to blame, referring to the  “the historical significance of the role of the Jews in American life.”

It is “as if they get the credit for the existence of the United States,” she said.

She also said President Trump was responsible because the “hatred and racism in his rhetoric” motivated such crimes.

Her remarks were broadcast by the UK-based Al-Araby TV channel a day after the attack.

Following the broadcast, Howard issued a statement indicating: “Ms. Kayed is not currently a faculty member at Howard University, and has not been since January 2017,” and unequivocally stating, “The University does not condone her remarks, nor is she a spokesperson representing Howard University. We mourn with our Jewish brothers and sisters in the aftermath of the horrific and unconscionable atrocity committed at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.”
