CAIR Official Reinstated to Maryland Hate Crimes Commission After Being Suspended Over Pro-Hamas Comments

“Upon further review, it was determined that the law establishing the Commission directs the Attorney General to appoint members to a 4-year fixed term but does not provide the Attorney General the authority to remove a Commissioner before the expiration of their term”

An official with the Council on American–Islamic Relations (CAIR) named Zainab Chaudry was suspended from the Maryland Commission on Hate Crimes by Maryland Attorney General Anthony Brown two weeks ago over some pro-Hamas comments she made on social media.

Her comments were vile. She reportedly wrote “I will never be able to understand how the world summoned up rage for 40 fake Israeli babies while completely turning a blind eye to 3,000 real Palestinian babies,” on Facebook, among other things.

Chaudry has now been reinstated to the commission.

The Washington Times reports:

Maryland attorney general reinstates CAIR-Maryland director to hate crimes panel

Maryland Attorney General Anthony Brown has reinstated to the state Hate Crimes Commission a Muslim leader who had been suspended over her social media posts in support of Palestinians that had been deemed antisemitic.

Mr. Brown, a Democrat, said Wednesday that he does not have the authority to suspend or remove commissioners under the panel’s enabling legislation, which he said is silent on those matters. He said his office is working on draft guidelines for personal communications by panel members and “how to balance the members’ right to freedom of speech and their roles as Commissioners” for the commission’s review.

“Once the guidelines are finalized, all Commission members will be expected to comply with them and I fully anticipate that they will,” Mr. Brown said.

Zainab Chaudry, director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations Maryland, was suspended from the Hate Crimes Commission after some of social media posts on the Israel-Hamas war were made public…

Ms. Chaudry also posted graphics and memes comparing Israel to Nazi Germany and saying the Israel-Hamas conflict “started in 1948” when the Jewish state was established. Those posts received media coverage in the U.S. and Britain before Mr. Brown announced her suspension on Nov. 21.

According to FOX News, these are some of the other comments made by Chaudry:

In an Oct. 17 post, Chaudry wrote, “[T]hat moment when you become what you hated most,” and included two photos of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, Germany, one showing it lit up with the Israeli flag in solidarity with Israel following the attack, and another from a ceremony in 1936 when it was decorated with the flag of Nazi Germany during the Olympics that year.

In another post from Nov. 6, Chaudry appeared to suggest the mere existence of Israel as a nation was the cause of the ongoing war, writing it was an “inconvenient fact.” She included an image of the words “it all started in 1948,” the year Israel was founded as a nation.

Others from the weeks following the attack showed Chaudry sharing a quote celebrating “martyred Palestinians,” and a post citing what appeared to be an Islamic prophesy that said “garrisons who defend the lands of Islam will be in Ashkelon,” an Israeli city north of the Gaza Strip.

Not everyone is impressed.

Hasn’t this woman disqualified herself from serving on a ‘hate crimes’ panel?

Hey, who better to identify hate crimes than a person suggesting them?

The problem is a hate crimes commission in the first place.

It Maryland, land of Baltimore, Prince George County live fire zone and wack your kids and let them get raped by a trans guy Montgomery County state. Steny Hoyer and Raskin home base. Plus Nancy’s childhood home of her mob father. What do you expect? Common sense?

Hasn’t this woman disqualified herself from serving on a ‘hate crimes’ panel?
Well, no, not really. Since there wasn’t any necessary qualification spelt out, to start with. It was all constructed based on the idea that Progressives continue to be in charge, and they would only appoint good Progressives to these sorts of things, so where would any conflict even be?

Until people with semi-normal morals get uppity because their ox is now being gored. Then it becomes a problem.

    Correct. Leftists always seek to promote the agenda even when it makes no sense (which it rarely does) and, especially, to direct money through the agenda to other good leftists.

    She has in fact distinguished herself as exactly the kind of person they want on that panel.

I *guarantee* you that all of her blatant anti-semitism was available for all to see well before she was appointed to this panel. All you’d have to do is look for it for 5 minutes, Or talk to her in private.

And while there are Muslims who aren’t anti-semitic scum like her, they don’t wield any political power in the Muslim community – and therefore, they aren’t useful to Democrats seeking to solidify the Jew-hating wing of their party.

    Muslims who aren’t anti-Semitic (for real, not just hiding it for our benefit) are arguably apostates, and would likely be executed in a Muslim polity if they were stupid enough to say “Jews are OK” publicly.

Muslim terrorist organizations lead with the women, because they have found that civilized societies underestimate their viciousness.

    I can’t understand why.

    You mentioned the defining qualification.

    Muslim terrorist.

    It’s bad enough women kill their children in the womb. It’s worse when they cut children from another woman’s womb and BBQ them

All Muslim Dhimmi-crats are hate-filled and bigoted Islamofascists, unfortunately, but, rather predictably.

Show me the Muslim outlier who unequivocally condemns Muslim supremacism, terrorism and Islamofascism, and, the intrinsically supremacist, totalitarian, belligerent and pathology-laden tenets of the ideology of “Submission” that animate that behavior.

    randian in reply to guyjones. | December 8, 2023 at 11:38 am

    You will often heard Muslims condemn such things, but they do so in a misleading way, using weasel words and terms of art that mean something different in the West than they do in Sharia law. For example, “I condemn the killing of innocents”, while forgetting to mention that unbelievers are by definition guilty of a grave crime (rejecting Allah) in Islamic law.

So you sack the joker to CYA but when the heat goes down she’s back. Seems pointless.

CAIR is terrorist org. It is front office for hamas. Shut it down.

    JohnSmith100 in reply to smooth. | December 8, 2023 at 7:21 pm

    It is, CAIR’s founders came from a terrorist org that was shutdown for raising money for terrorism.

AG Brown has put his finger up in the air, and acknowledged the very stiff wind of antisemitism flowing from the Dem direction. The MD Jewish communities will have to understand that it is the cost of wokeness, and take one (or more) for the team. They will just have to continue voting Dem (including Brown’s reelection) until it all passes.

Chaudry was appointed by AG Brown for the very reason she was given an extended paid Thanksgiving holiday 21 November to 5 December. The whole thing was theater to provide allied media reporters with “discussion space” to placate “zionists” and zionist-adjacent rubes.

She’s a viscous fascist.

Am I the only one here who takes a different message from this article?

My reading of this article states quite clearly that technically the Attorney General did not “reinstate” this woman, he simply acknowledged that he had no legal power to suspend her the first place, because the legislation didn’t give him any. Presumably, the woman’s lawyer uncovered this loophole and confronted the Attorney General with it.

If you’re gonna argue that you suspect that the attorney general is just grasping at a convenient excuse, that’s another issue entirely, but I would have to see at least some evidence of it and not just “it could happen.”

AG Brown, who appointed all the members of the Maryland Hate Crimes Commission,said he does not have the authority under the law to remove any commission member. Here’s betting that if any member of the commission made anti-Muslim social media comments similar to the comments made by Ms Chaudry the AG would find some way to remove them from the commission.

If you need evidence that a “Hate Crimes” Commission is a terrible idea here it is. Of course if you need evidence of that, you are almost certainly unable to process this evidence and change your mind about “Hate Crimes” Commissions.

Send her to Palestine, 1st Class One-Way ticket, maybe then she’ll change her tune. These people are demented.

Sure have a H8er on a Hate Crime commission, who else would be a expert on it?

I think I said that would happen

Seems like a good appointment. She seems to be a domain expert on hate crimes.

Kind of reminds me of the Constitution and the question of a State(s) leaving. One argument is that although the several states signed up for a Union there was no provision spelt out to leave so they can’t.

    Pity. I don’t recall the Federalists addressing this directly: the Federal or worse, other state impositions on a state become so heinous that a state wants out.

    What about a convention of the states to put a procedure in place to opt out? /moar popcorn

Big mistakes:
GWB claiming “religion of peace” after 9/11
0bama cozying up with muslim brotherhood
government dealing with cair
allowing $ from foreign entities associated with terror/communism into our universities and public schools (Qatar has been funding “Arabic studies” in high schools (perhaps even lower schools) for years
