M.D. Alam, who currently leads the National Democratic Party Asian American Caucus, a group sponsored by the Democratic National Committee, has publicly stated that no Jews were killed during the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, and has made statements that imply Jews as an entity were involved in the attack itself.
“Why was 9/11 an official holiday for all Jewish people who worked in the WTC?” Alam asked rhetorically in a discussion titled, “Was 9/11 a conspiracy??”
When he was queried this week about this statement, Alam reiterated 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 comments from the State Department indicating that hundreds of Jews died as a result of al-Qaeda’s attacks on America in 2001, Alam continues to espouse the belief that there were no Jewish victims on 9/11.
“When people make the Jewish claim with respect to the 9/11 attacks, that is such a red flag for an anti-Semite,” 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.
