Revealed: Head of Catholic St Thomas University’s Student Government Tweeted That Jews Will ‘Get What’s Coming’ to Them
by Rachel Frommer
The president of a Minnesota school’s undergraduate student government (USG) once tweeted, “yahood [Jews] will get what coming for them [sic],” a covert campus watchdog group revealed.
Mayzer Muhammad of St. Paul’s University of St. Thomas has a history of antisemitic rhetoric on social media stretching back to 2014, Canary Mission found, including calling supporters of Israel “the scum of the earth,” referring to Israel as a “racist apartheid state” and claiming the country is “murdering innocent people every day.”
Muhammad was previously the president of the campus chapter of the Muslim Student Association.
Muhammad’s last public comments about Israel, identified by The Algemeiner, date back to the month before he won his uncontested bid for USG in April 2016. At the time, he reposted a video from AJ+ — an online media channel run by the Qatar-based Al Jazeera Media Network — in which a voice alleged to be that of an “Israeli border officer” is heard yelling in Arabic, “We are the occupation army” and threatening to kill “the children, the youth, the old people.” Muhammad said the video depicted “[t]he reality of what goes on in Palestine.”
“People and their families getting threatened by getting gassed to death to leave their homes,” he added. “The US needs to stop supporting a country that allows this to happen with no real repercussions to the offenders.”
Neither Muhammad nor representatives at St. Thomas immediately responded to The Algemeiner‘s request for comment.
