MD Alam is running for Secretary of State in Missouri and heads the  National Democratic Party Asian American Caucus, a group sponsored by the Democratic National Committee.  Alam also believes no Jews died during the attacks of 9/11 and has made statements that infer Jews were involved in the attack itself.

“Why [was] 9/11 was a official holiday for all Jewish people who worked in the the WTC?” Alam said in a discussion titled, “Was 9/11 a conspiracy??”

Asked earlier this week about this statement, Alam reaffirmed his position.

“My question was, ‘What’s the reason not a single Jew was killed on that day,'” Alam said, according to the Washington Free Beacon. “Was there a single Jew killed on that day?”

Decisive Majority of US Muslims Oppose Violence Against Civilians, New Survey Shows

A new survey of political and social attitudes among the US Muslims shows that over three-quarters of the community rejects...

Despite public remarks from the State Department that show hundreds of Jews died as a result of al-Qaeda’s attacks on U.S. soil in 2001, Alam continues to purport that no Jewish victims perished on 9/11.

“When people make the Jewish claim with respect to the 9/11 attacks, that is such a red flag for an anti-Semite,” Debra Burlingame of the national security group Keep America Safe told The Beacon. “It’s a dirty little truth for the 9/11 Truthers.”

In 2008, Alam worked as a satellite campaign manager for President Obama and the Democratic party in the Kansas City area.

  • “statements that infer Jews were involved in the attack itself”

    This is incorrect. The correct word is “imply”. That is he implied the Jews were involved in the attack so that his listeners would “infer” (conclude from the “evidence”) that this was true.

    In any case, he is deliberately using the fact that morning services ended later than usual (because Rosh Hashannah was approaching) so that some Jews got to work later than usual to imply that they therefore knew about the attack. He is also using the fact that some Jews were attending a memorial mourning the death of someone that they knew to imply this.

      I strongly disagree with you about Alam’s stating that 9/11 was a Jewish Holiday so Jews did not come to work. Alam knew or should have known that it was NOT a Jewish holiday.

      Most congregations begin prayers earlier so as not to make people late because of the recitation of Selichot special prayers recited daily during the month prior to the Jewish New Year).

      No, Alam is simply another Jew hating Moslem who chose to attempt to revise factual history.

      What is most unfortunate is that the DNC supports his position. Their silence is ratification of Alam’s position.

      asp Wikipedia:
      “In 2007, Alam founded the Missouri Democratic Party Asian American Caucus (MDPAAC), which now includes 11 county chapters. In 2009, he became the National Chairman of US National Democratic Party Asian American Caucus, and was the Chair of first National Convention of National Democratic Party Asian American Caucus in 2011. He serves as the Democratic Party Committeeman of the 26 ward, having run unopposed in 2010. His term as committeeman will expire in 2012.
      Alam first ran for major office in 2010 as a Democratic candidate representing District 50 in the Missouri House of Representatives. He lost in the primary election on August 3, 2010.[1]
      On March 6, 2012, Alam filed with the secretary of state for the 2012 election, seeking the post of Secretary of State of Missouri from which the current officeholder, Robin Carnahan, will retire this year.”

    If this is right, if this person really have said this, than there must be a total rejection by his colleques and his former supporters;even of the president cause these statements can not possibly left without no response! Unfortunately i have no internet at home, only mobile, so i can not google for more sources and information. But i defenidly will tomorrow at a public computer! If this information is wright and widely spread and i cannot find a public rejection of those words; in that case there is a huge problem!

    Alam and others who believe this myth can learn the facts at the U.S. State Department’s website at http://web.archive.org/web/20070211085836/http://usinfo.state.gov/media/Archive/2005/Jan/14-260933.html.

    This is a good picture of him. I’m surprised he’s not being hand-picked by Obama who has a penchant for anti-Semites and self-haters like him.

    By the way – I lost three cousins on that day – and had to explain to my then newly 11 year old daughter about why people hate. Her b-day is Sept. 11th.

    I highly believe the US Immigration Department needs to audit the records of the last 30 years so we can clean house as we do not need these wanna be and supporters of terrorists in the US.

  • Michael Levy

    I beg all Americans to stop and listen! Vote the Ialamist President that you now have into power again and you’ll be giving Islam a passpor to the destruction of America and the western world as we know it.

    If one is called out as being anti semetic, the state of Israel are the antichrists, reading 1st John 2:18. Who is Esau? How can Israel be alive and Edom dead? Heritage is tribal, culture is worldly like art / thou makes man forget about God

  • kevobx

    All 19 hi jackers of 911 were from Saudi Arabia, their passports came from Pakistan. The Bin laden family was in the U.S.A, and flew home right after the towers fell. Why did Jews changed their names to enter Hollywood. Now every second, minute and hour, some body admits their Jewish, why? (Revelation 2:9). A negro does not have to say he is black, when speaking in general. How many so called Jews came out of bondage with Moses? What temple Jews were in exile, and to who? Please name them. The state of Israel is the twin elder brother Esau, who is calling God a liar? What is more important the Bible or the people’s religion, all religions are lovers of themselves first of all. The state of Israel hates Jesus Christ, ask them. Oh that would be anti semetic to question the King of the Jews? (John 7:13) What is a Rabbi, but a god of himself. What defiles a man is what comes out of his mouth. Love truth, hate opinions. Jerusalem is a spiritual death trap, & the devil is a snare (Ezra 4:12) *Jeremiah 9:11*

    • Michael Levy

      Kevobs you’re just another antisemite who walks the earth tslking trash! I can only say that I really feel sorry for you and hope that maybe you’ll learn to read one day………………

    • David

      You know, normally, I can follow the train of thought of crazy — there’s usually at least an internal consistency. But you’re all over the place. Do you think you could perhaps refine your thoughts so I know what you’re asking so that we can more accurately understand what you’re positing rather than just splattering a bunch of stuff? I think it would help those of us who are trying to understand the specific faction of crazy to which you belong.

      Thanks in advance for your cooperation, it’s much appreciated.

    Missouri Right To Life is endorsing Alam in the Democrat primary to be held on August 7th. They are fully informed about his views as well as his affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organization, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).

    ISNA was named as an undicted co-conspirator in the Hamas terrorist funding trial, the largest terrorist funding trial in U.S. history.

    What an anti Semitic idiot My husbands brother passed away on 9/11 he was in the 2nd tower and he is Jewish so for some ignorant person who claims to be a politician should know not o state something without information to back him up plus ignorance is intolerable in America so you but shut your mouth if you want a seat in this country you stupid jerk

    • Saidi

      No, he is not a jerk. He is an unwelcome allegedly legal immigrant who needs to have his passport revoked and should be extradited for inciteful speech.

  • norman roth

    over 400 Jews were killed that day

  • Fredric M. London

    It is unfortunate that a ‘person’ such as he is running for high office. On the other hand, it is also a shame that the head of his party, while much more quiet about it, has demonstrated he has no problem with such ideas. What a shame that the coming election will feature Farrakhan vs Boss Tweed.

    • What kind of brainless malcontent would vote for this obvious enemy of our country?

    • Shmuel – Chicago

      “[T]he head of his party, while much more quiet about it, has demonstrated he has no problem with such ideas.”

      Oh, really? Care to give us a citation for where he demonstrated that he has no problem with “no Jews died on 9/11” lie? Of course not, because your statement is nothing but hyperbolic, rhetorical BS.

      • Milhouse

        Why don’t you give a citation for where 0bama has expressed any problem with this or with trutherism in general? Van Jones, a truther, was one of his closest advisers until a public outcry forced him out. And Michael Moore, truther extraordinaire, has a prominent place of honour at Democratic conventions, with no demur from 0bama.

  • David B.

    To my earlier comment – This foolish wrong-headed discrimination against even myself because of to say the least a rather tenuous connection with Judaism has resulted in my becoming in reality a Jew, a supporter of Israel, a Zionist and all it stands for. I am an atheist but I know right from wrong unlike these empty-headed Islamist masses who are so often to be seen on their city streets screaming for the destruction of Israel and the people who encourage such lunatic behavior in order to use them as milch cows kept for the most part in utter poverty to accumulate for themselves fantastic amounts of personal wealth.

  • Dave

    This story proves once again: the home for modern American anti-Semitism is firmly on the left.

  • Jill Schaeffer

    Nu? Are you surprised? Is anybody surprised? I’m not surprised. The day after 9/11 I was sitting in the “pit” at Union Theological Seminary, watching the events unfold on TV, when an Afro-American student turned to me and murmured: “The CIA did it.” The following Saturday, at a Presbytery meeting, a pastor stood up and called for a resolution blaming the economic system of the United States for 9/11. Two years ago at an IPMN meeting which took place during the Presbyterian General Assembly, an allusion to Jews causing 9/11 was made.

    Anybody see a pattern here? Knock Israel, knock the United States. Knock Jews, knock the United States. Everybody who murders and maims is innocent and acquitted for everything they do, but we are guilty for everything we do including the things we don’t do. Why are you surprised? I’m not. Let’s eat.

  • David B.

    It is so sad that such an evil-doer as this anti-Semite is allowed to make such a lunatic observation (clearly demonstrating that he is a seriously disturbed person)without serious consequences for his future career as public figure. I have only a remote connection with Jewish ancestors, (my Grandmother originated in the Lithuanian Jewish community) but this has been sufficient for many people to discriminate against me when this is discovered. Why this strange antipathy against anything Jewish runs so deeply among people even in an allegedly generally enlightened and tolerant society such as the United Kingdom who mostly don’t even know what a Jew is baffles me completely.

  • Roberta Arnold

    MD Alam. You are an idiot supreme. You weren’t even here to see and hear about all the Jewish dead. Wash your mouth out with soap.

    • alan

      How about if this idiot just leaves the country, much less hld office, here.

  • Islamists say that 9/11 was a great and glorious victory for Islam. They also say the Jews did it.
    Is there a contradiction between these two accounts? Not according to Islamists. The greatness of Islam in no way contradicts the perfidy of Jews.

  • linda hunter

    The anti-semites are coming out of the walls. Please, Hashem, let it me a harbinger of the coming of the Mashiach.

  • Eva

    I am truly disturbed by this article. My sister a JEW was sitting in class with a girl (also an orthodox jew) when the attacks happened. Her father died in the attacks he was in the 2nd tower and could not get out. The family was on the phone with him until it went dead which was precisely the time that the 2nd tower went down. I can tell you about a few more, but that image will never leave her head, and these people lost their father. How dare someone who is looking for a place in public office be so blatantly anti semetic!!!! How dare he! Maybe he also thinks that America was behind these attacks!!!!!!!!!!!He should look up the list of over 3,000 people who perished such a gruesome death and look at how many jews were killed.

      Looking up the names of the dead do not help to change the rhetoric of an avowed antisemite, particularly an islamic one. Their entire history as they tello it, is a lie, including 1400 years of enslavement which they deny, and which continues to this day, and 270 million people killed by Islamists.
      They are probably the most evil people on the earth today and we’d better wake everyone up and take some drastic measures to get them out of high places or we will be living under the sword of Islam.
