Hate crime task force member in Maryland suggests babies murdered by Hamas were fake, compares Israel to Nazi Germany
An pro-Palestinian activist who works with a Maryland task force meant to address hate crimes has apparently garnered a name for herself by posting anti-Semitic vitriol on social media, as well as suggesting that the babies killed during Hamas’ slaughter on October 7 were fake.
The New York Post reported that Zainab Chaudry, who is currently the director of the Council on American-Islam Relations in Maryland, made the disgusting posts just a week after Hamas’ horrific attack against the Jewish state. She went on to compare the nation of Israel to Nazi Germany.
Hamas murdered 1,200 Jews and abducted 240 more on October 7, which prompted Israel to declare war. The Jewish state launched ground operations in Gaza following the attack, including targeting the Shifa Hospital and the tunnels beneath it, believed to be the location of Hamas’ headquarters.
Chaudry reportedly posted to Facebook on October 26, writing: “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.”
Claims from the Gaza Health Ministry, which is controlled by Hamas, about the number of dead Palestinians in the conflict have been completely unverified and are widely suspected of being inflated.
On October 17, Chaudry posted two images of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin — one from 1936 featuring the Nazi flag, then another illuminated with the Israeli flag following Hamas’ attack, with the caption: “The moment when you become what you hated most.”
Though Chaudry has posted several other anti-Israel posts in the time since Hamas’ attack, she has maintained her position on the Maryland Commission on Hate Crime Response and Prevention. She was reportedly put in that post by Maryland Attorney General Anthony Brown.
Fox News Digital was told by Jennifer Donelan, Brown’s spokesperson, that “the views and opinions of any individual Commission member do not reflect those of either the Maryland Commission on Hate Crime Response and Prevention or the Attorney General.”
“We understand that there are many viewpoints regarding current events in the Middle East. The Commission will do its best to explore the impact of those events on our community, and to determine how best to address escalations in hate and bias incidents across the state.”
Donelan went on to say that the Commission would do its best to “develop policies and protocols governing its work.”
“Just as we urge others to do, the Commission will identify ways in which we can foster productive and empathetic dialogue amongst ourselves that leads to mutual understanding,” she continued.
“We, like the rest of the world, must first talk to one another and, most importantly, listen to one another as we work toward the goals of peace and tolerance.”
Fox News Digital noted that Chaudry responded to a request for comment, saying that the “Nazi post” was originally shared by a “close Jewish friend” before claiming that Israel’s mission was to commit genocide against Palestinians.
