Zionist-Supported Hank Johnson of Georgia Accuses Arab Americans and Muslim Americans of Terrorism

By Hassan El-Najjar

Al-Jazeerah, August 10, 2006

Everyday we have new evidence that Zionists in the United States are relentless in their efforts to instigate the American public against Arabs and Muslims.

This time, the Zionist-supported congressional candidate from Georgia, Hank Johnson, indicated that Arab Americans and Muslim Americans are terrorists. This is how he qualified for support from Zionists who helped him defeat Cyntia McKinney, who refused to be an AIPAC stooge, like most members of US Congress. (Cynthia McKinney Targeted by the Israel Lobby, AGAIN! ).

Before Hank Johnson, Senator Santorum blasted Islam and Muslims. Earlier, the Senator from Colorado called for bombing Makkah if the US would be attacked by Alqaeda again. Directly, following September 11 attacks, Senator Zell Miller of Georgia also called for "nuking" them.

It seems that a major qualification of those who aspire to win Congressional seats is to have anti-Arab and anti-Islamic attitudes, and to express them in public.

It shouldn't be a surprise then that the overwhelming majority of members of Congress, Republicans and Democrats, voted for the US war on Iraq without any threat posed from that beleaguered country.

It follows that the root cause of corruption in the American political system is loyalty to Israel, which has dragged America to fight Israeli wars to destroy the Middle East.

To save America, these Zionist stooges should be defeated in the November elections.



CAIR, August 10, 2006

CAIR is calling on American Muslims and other people of conscience to contact Georgia congressional candidate Hank Johnson and ask that he meet with American Muslim and Arab-American leaders to discuss his recent remarks implying that all voters with Arabic names may be "terrorists."

In a televised debate with Rep. Cynthia McKinney, Johnson said: "...But since we're talking about Middle East policy I will say that the abundant number of contributors to Mrs. McKinney's campaign are, have Palestinian and Arab surnames, now I could accuse her of being under the control of terrorists." Johnson won Tuesday's runoff for Georgia's Fourth Congressional District.

Johnson's remarks may be viewed at:


In a letter to Johnson, CAIR Government Affairs Director Corey Saylor wrote:

"This comment seems to suggest that Arab-American and Muslim participation in the political process has sinister connotations and that having an Arabic name somehow indicates a propensity for violence."

Saylor requested that Johnson meet with Muslim and Arab-American community leaders to discuss their concerns about his remarks.


Call, fax or e-mail Hank Johnson's campaign headquarters and insist that he apologize for the remarks and agree to meet with Muslim and Arab-American leaders within the next few days.

(Remember, remain POLITE at all times. Hostile comments hurt our efforts. CALLS ARE BEST.)
