Missouri - MD Rabbi 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 an 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?”
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 antisemite,” 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.
Later on Alam apologizes for claims no Jews died on 9/11
