South Florida Muslim leader Sofian Zakkout has been affiliated with the Miami-Dade offices of both Crime Stoppers and Citizens Crime Watch for a number of years. What would seem to be commendable acts to help the community are quickly nullified by the fact that Zakkout, too, has been affiliated with hatred and terrorism for many more years and poses a significant threat to this same community. This month, his pattern of bigoted extremism has continued with the posting of a heavily anti-Semitic video onto his Facebook page.
Sofian Abdelziz Zakkout is the director of the American Muslim Association of North America (AMANA), a radical Islamic group based in Miami, Florida. Previously, Zakkout, who was born in Gaza, was the Vice President of the Health Resource Center for Palestine (HRCP), a terrorist charity whose Secretary/Treasurer, Syed Khawer Ahmad, was a website developer for Hamas.
In the past couple years, Zakkout's Facebook page has become a storage space for images of bosses and armed militants from Hamas and videos from white supremacist and former KKK leader David Duke. Zakkout organized a pro-Hamas rally in 2014, where his rally goers shouted "We are Hamas" and "Let's go Hamas." Following the rally, he wrote in Arabic, "Thank God, every day we conquer the American Jews like our conquests over the Jews of Israel!" He signed it, "Br. Sofian Zakkout."
