Obviously, you remember when Speaker Nancy Pelosi had a mess to clean up when freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar kept making anti-Semitic remarks on Twitter, like her famous “It’s all about the Benjamins, baby!” tweet (not to mention her tweet about how Israel “hypnotized the world” to get away with its evil deeds).

That mess ended up with the House passing a very “brave” resolution denouncing hate speech, including Islamophobia. Omar certainly played the Democrat leadership on that one.

It’s not just an American problem. On Wednesday morning, the BBC hosted a town hall with five contenders to take over as prime minister after Theresa May steps down over the Brexit mess. One of the questioners was an imam named Abdullah Patel, who wanted to ask the tories about Islamophobia. It wasn’t until after the program that the BBC learned that Patel has a history of what Yahoo News called “anti-Israel tweets.”

Zionists pounce!

The BBC’s Nicky Campbell apologized Wednesday.

Oh well, live and learn. At least we know he supports Labour leader and anti-Semite Jeremy Corbyn:

Oh, and this little red patch on the U.S. map is where he’d put Israel.

The Times of Israel reports:

Patel has since taken down his Twitter account but previous social media posts from @AbdullahPatel94 published by the Spectator include accusing the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance of either “lying about wanting to protect freedom of speech, or they simply wish to undermine @jeremycorbyn”.

In one message Patel also reportedly wrote: “How long are the Zionists going to hide behind the Holocaust cry? It was a tragedy, but Gaza today is a repeat of the oppression.”

Wow, it sounds like he could have a place on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ campaign staff.

Not a bad idea …

We’ve learned that over the last couple of days.

Patel has deleted his Twitter account, but here’s one for the ladies:
