Today on Sekulow in the US State Department and the Department of Homeland Security, Jew haters have been exposed, but they have not been fired. We're going to talk about that today on Sekulow. And now your host, Jordan Sekulow. Welcome to Sekulow, folks.
We've got a lot to talk about today on Sekulow. We're taking your phone calls to 1-800-684-3110 this November 1st. As we begin this month, we are learning very troubling information about what's happening inside the United States of American government. For instance, Senator Josh Hawley has questioned the Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas about one of his employees at DHS. They are there to protect Americans, including, by the way, and you'll understand why I'm saying this, Jewish Americans. This employee praises terrorists on their social media, still remains employed by the government. He's asked about revoking visas from students from Israel and Jewish people. He's used expletives about Israel, the F word. I mean, again, you can't even read a lot of the things that this guy has said about Jews because, of course, Israel is an apartheid state. But then he goes even further. This is an asylum and immigration officer posting these pro-genocidal slogans and images.
And he was doing it on the day, on October 7th, but he's been doing it for years and yet he has not been fired. An employee of the federal government. That's just one of them. Now I know there's two.
There's a second. You head over to this department, which department is this, Will? This is the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the second department. They hired a PLO spokesperson. This is a spokesperson for another terrorist organization that runs the West Bank and Abbas. She was kicked out of the United States by the Trump administration. The Biden administration brought her back into the United States. And hires a federal employee. As a spokesperson. She's a spokesperson to handle asylum claims. Now if you were a Jew seeking asylum, would you like having this PLO person in charge of your claim? We're going to tell you what these people posted, folks. Some of you can't even put on air.
But the statements that they make are outrageous. Now, I was at the U.N. in 2016 at the General Assembly for a big conference on boycott, divest, and sanctions. When do you want to play that, Will? Okay. Take a listen to what I said.
Make no mistake. The goal is unambiguous. The intent is clear. It is to create an environment so hostile that those students of you that are here today would be afraid to say the word, I am a Zionist.
I am a Jew. Never, never on the memory of our families should we allow that to take place. And the least in the United States of America.
I was working for a campaign in Miami, Florida. I remember watching that speech. I ended up thinking, you know, we should never have that in the United States of America.
BDS is one thing. Jews have been dealing with that in Israel for a long time. But the threat of murder, death, not just the random hate crimes from the white supremacist groups, but this, again, this pitched war between all Muslims. I want to underscore again, this spokesperson at the PLO, on the day, October 7th, that they were actually posting Hamas terrorists parachuting in with the guns.
This is a spokesperson of the U.S. government. We're going to get in depth on this. We have also launched today our Faith and Freedom Drive. We're at a moment in the history that we prayed we'd never see. And we unfortunately are experiencing the global attacks on our faith, and we're also seeing the hostility here in the United States.
So, what's happening between Israel and the United States right now, it's outrageous. Here at the ACLJ, we are uniquely positioned to meet these evil attacks head on. We've got a full slate of lawyers in our European office, our Washington, D.C. office, which we're going to be in next week, working on this. We've got a really assembled and elite team of lawyers and government affairs professionals. So, we need you now more than ever. The country needs you, the world needs you, the ACLJ needs you, and it certainly Israel needs you.
Go to ACLJ.org. It's our Faith and Freedom Drive. Any amount you donate, we're going to get a matching gift for. Faith and Freedom 2024, now more than ever.
Welcome back to Secular. I know, again, we are giving you new information about two different individuals inside the U.S. government. I want to focus on one of them right now, and we're going to name them out because they do this publicly.
They're proud of what they're saying. Fritz Berggren, he is currently a U.S. State Department employee, a Foreign Service Officer. If we talk to Rick Rinnell today, Foreign Service Officers are very difficult jobs to get. I mean, you go through all of your undergraduate, graduate education, and then a long training program at the State Department. I mean, it's a dream job for many people who want to work in foreign policy. And you're very much supposed to have your background checked, everything you say online could impact your career.
Unless, of course, I guess you're saying it about Jews. Because even back in 2021, they started taking notice that he is making these comments. He runs a blog called Blood and Faith, a podcast called Fritz Report. Here are some things he has said. Can we play this?
Let's go. This is your U.S. State Department employee. You pay his salary, and he is a Foreign Service Officer.
He said this in just the last few days. The Jews worship Satan, and they're Satan's own children. Understand who our enemies are. Don't apologize. Never, ever, ever apologize for being white.
Never do that. Oh, you can't be racist or sexist or homophobic. Says who? He also said, who's the enemy? It's the Jews.
He said Jesus Christ came to save the world from the Jews. They're the seed of the serpent, the brood of vipers. That we are invaded, egged on by traitors and Jews who hate the white race. How on earth? Do we have all this on audio? Have we pulled all these audio bites? Do we have them? Some are post-summer videos.
Oh, some are post-summer videos. I want to say something here. Do you know how domestic violent extremists are doing about pro-lifers? Yeah, well they should be doing that. You know, Chris Wray, take your, Andy you said this yesterday. Chris Wray needs to take his resources and maybe investigate the United States Department of State.
Yes, that's a good idea. There, instead of politicizing the Justice Department for other purposes, it might be good for the FBI to go across the street and look at the State Department and see exactly who their employees are and what they're saying with respect to the Jews in the United States and in the world. This guy is a foreign service officer that we are paying. Yeah, as of right now, he has not been put on leave or anything.
No. He's there. How did this happen and how did the State Department know this? They know every pro-lifers move. They're going to the Catholic Church.
Don't mind going to the Catholic Church. By the way, I've already authorized our team at the ACLJ. We're going to initiate litigation on this guy and find out everything we can about him through Freedom of Information Act demand and then litigation. I'm also announcing that we are filing a lawsuit on Friday, that's the plan, on Friday involving all this Israel-Hamas funding that's going on to these various groups.
We're getting to the bottom of all this, folks. All that funding goes through. When you have people like this at the State Department, you know, you scratch your head and say, why do we keep giving money when we know they misuse it? A million dollars we know goes to Mahmoud Abbas's son, the head of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, okay? Of course it is. Look who's running the State Department. Yeah.
I mean, look at this. Here's the other person we were talking about. Najwa Ali. She is a DHS employee. She handles asylum requests from Middle East countries. When President Trump came in in 2016 and 2017, she was a public affairs officer at the Palestinian delegation to the U.S. and she was kicked out of the United States.
She's back in, but she has been put on administrative leave at least by DHS. That's only after she said, F Israel, the government and its military, are you ready for your downfall? While posting on October 7th images, I'll show it to those of you watching, of Hamas terrorists parachuting in to kill Israelis.
There's the imaging right there. This is from an individual who is getting paid, is a Department of Homeland Security employee who handles, Andy, asylum requests from Middle East countries. I read that and turned my stomach.
I couldn't believe that she would be put in that position. Why would we have somebody from the PLO, okay? Hired back in the United States to handle asylum requests from people coming out of the Middle East.
I mean, think about that for a minute. They talk about you find these terrorists at the border. Well, no wonder we're finding terrorists. They're at the border. They get to come right in through the legal process with these people running it. Apparently that's the case, and that's what our State Department is fostering and doing in this situation.
You're taking people who used to work for the PLO, a terrorist organization along with Hamas and Hezbollah, and you're putting them in a position where they determine whether you can apply for under the immigration laws and regulations and get asylum applications. And these are people working for the United States of America, for the U.S. government that we're paying for. Deplorable situation. Deplorable.
It's disgusting. They're putting the whole country at risk. Look what's going on.
The world's on fire. By the way, Joe Biden, you know what, I'm going to say this publicly, okay, because I've had it. Your policies are horrific. You're running a government that is not functioning. We've got a mess in Russia, Ukraine, and Eastern Europe. The Middle East is on fire, and you're afraid to say you're Jewish in the United States of America.
That's a pretty bad day. Well, I want to tell you that this individual, Najwa Ali, worked in 2016 and 2017 for the PLO office. That's the Palestinian Liberation Organization in D.C. Donald Trump and President Trump, Mike Pompeo and that team shut that office down.
But you know what? She's now not only working for the Palestinians somewhere in the Middle East. She's landed on her feet inside the U.S. government. So while her office was shut down as basically a terror hub operating in D.C., just like they shut down the Iranian press TV, remember that? It used to be right next to CBN News in Washington, D.C., actually. It was the Iranian press TV.
And we shut down RT, which was the Russian propaganda news channel, as well as more information came there. But yet, you'd think, after she gets her whole office thrown out of the United States, no worries for her. She'll get a job at the U.S. government. And that's where she is today, adjudication officer for the U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration Services. And she did not get put on administrative leave until on October 7th, she put out that message, F Israel, the government and its military, are you ready for your downfall, with the imagery of the Hamas terrorist parachuting in to kill all of those families at kibbutz's, children, babies, women, and, of course, people attending a dance concert in the desert who, again, has just been put on administrative leave. She's staying at home right now. She's still getting her check. I bet a lot of you right now that are getting checks, you're not sitting at home. And if you said this at your office, private places about anyone, you'd never have a job again? I got to say this, okay? Look, fire these people.
I mean, what's the worst thing I can do, sue us for wrongful termination? Throw her out of the country if she's not a citizen. I have a feeling she is. She is a citizen?
She must be dual because when the PLL office got closed, she stayed in D.C. and eventually got the job with the U.S. government. That's fine. But let me tell you what we got here, okay? When we're wondering if they're getting people in, we're worried about the southern border, which we should, let me tell you what else. They're coming in through the front door.
The front door to the United States of America. And we're allowing Jewish students to have to hide in cafeterias and closets like they're Anne Frank in the year 2023, in the United States of America, in New York. By the way, I will thank the governor, a Democrat, for getting the police to get that and the FBI to get that arrest person responsible. You know, it makes even more sense of why Christopher Wray said what he said yesterday because if the kind of individual like this was handling what Palestinians could get immigration status inside the U.S. government, inside the United States between 2016 and 2017, she could have been picking out the people who were the extremists.
She could have been bringing in the terror cells. But don't you think Chris Wray, Andy, could have found this information out and had a couple FBI agents go over and talk to her? You know, he knows about it. He said he knew about it. He knew about, you know, he should have done what he was supposed to do. He says he knew about it. He said it was that the Jews are the biggest attack minority, a rather ethnic group in the United States for the percentage of the population, and yet he hadn't done anything about it except make a statement with respect to it. How about taking some action? Here you've got this woman, Najwa Ali.
I want to say that name. Najwa Ali, public relations officer for the Palestinian delegation to the U.S., now working on leave, yes, but was in the adjudication office for U.S. citizenship where she did, quote, analyze new or amended legislation and policy, prepare written reports and findings, review and make determinations on cases for immigration benefits. This is what she did, and that's what her history was, and she was working for the U.S. government. Okay, folks, we have launched today a faith and freedom drive. Obviously, Israel is a big part of it, but so is it right here in the United States, because we've got to put an end to this. We're at a moment in history, frankly, as I said, I never thought we would see this, and I'm sure we would never see this again. We're experiencing global attacks on our faith and our freedoms. We're seeing it right here in the United States now. We're seeing genocide. We're seeing the attempt to eradicate religious groups, including right now the focus seems to be on Jews, but Christians, of course, in the Middle East. We're witnessing in Israel what could be the precursor to a second Holocaust.
It was the most Jews killed in Israel since the Holocaust. At the ACLJ, by God's grace, we are uniquely positioned, uniquely positioned to be able to address this. Our office in Strasbourg, France, was successful in obtaining a resolution from the European Parliament. Our offices in Washington, D.C. are right now working around the clock as we bring some big information to you next week from Washington.
I cannot disclose what it is. We've authorized the filing of a lawsuit today, so that's going forward. We may well have action at the United Nations. All of this is happening simultaneously. We need you now more than ever. The country needs you, the world needs you, Israel needs you, and we need you here at the ACLJ.
Have your gift doubled through the ACLJ's faith and freedom drive today. It's that important. It is that important, folks. I mean, we're learning about what's happening, not just in Israel, not just in the Middle East, but the extremism in our own country. And by the way, the extremism they hold against Jews, guess who's next on their list? Christians.
Christians. Most of our audience is listening right now. You're next on the list if they kill all the Jews. All right, welcome back to Sekio. We are taking your calls.
I want to play this just back to back for you, just kind of as a reminder, because you've got, of course, Fritz Berggren. He is a current U.S. State Department employee, a Foreign Service officer since 2021. That's a big position, folks. I'll just tell you, I know people who, in undergrad at GW, who you've got to know multiple languages, you then have to get a master's, you have to pass language tests, then you have to pass the Foreign Service exam, and then you end up getting assigned somewhere around the world or inside the State Department. It's a rigorous process.
It's something people work towards and hope they get that job their entire life. Well, Fritz Berggren did, but this is the kind of comments he's making on his podcast. Just take a listen to this quick one. Who's the enemy? It's the Jew. The Jew. The Jew. The Jew. The Jew. Yeah, what's the problem? Say it again.
Play it again. Who's the enemy? It's the Jew. The Jew. The Jew. The Jew. The Jew. Who's the enemy?
That's what he said. The Jew. The Jew.
The Jew. How is this person employed by the United States State Department? I would like to ask him. Can I ask that question, just like Josh Hawley?
How in the world do they allow this? Well, how is Christopher Wray not showing up at this guy's door right now? And saying you're threatening a group? Yeah, because he said it yesterday about how terrorism is on the rise in the U.S. with a threat by 24. This is a threat that is reaching, in some ways, sort of historic levels, in part because, as you know all too well, the Jewish community is targeted by terrorists really across the spectrum. Homegrown violent extremists, foreign terrorist organizations, both Sunni and Shia, domestic violent extremists. And, in fact, our statistics would indicate that for a group that represents only about 2.4 percent of the American public, they account for something like 60 percent of all religious-based hate crimes.
Here's the thing for Chris Wray. How about you're the FBI. You've got government officials putting out this hate.
Why don't you knock on Fritz Berggren's door right now, seize his files, and see what else he's got planned? Yeah. Well, you know what?
They have no hesitation showing up with guns pointed at pro-life protesters, CeCe, but you've got a guy in your State Department and you're doing nothing while you're paying him. That's what you're doing. Yeah. Not off of a theory. Of course. Not off of any information they actually had. Right.
Yeah. They absolutely give excuses for anybody who is anti-Semitic. They just give excuse after excuse. But, again, like you said, if you're pro-life, oh my gosh, they're coming to your door with weapons drawn. Right.
And the fact that they just kind of blow this off is ridiculous. Andy, you work for these agencies. Yes. And I work for government agencies. Yes.
What is going on here? Is the problem that the people that are actually the asylum officers are the enemy? No.
The problem, Jay, is what you said earlier. Where is the President of the United States? That's what I want to know. Where is Joe Biden? The FBI is skulking around Catholic churches listening to the mass and seeing if there's anything subversive. We have no control. There is no one in control. And that's why these agencies are running wild because there is no one at the helm. The ship has not got a captain. There is no one in command of the vessel of the United States.
The President of the United States is walking along Rehoboth Beach and having coffee and croissants. He has no idea what he's saying or what he's doing. The Emperor, folks, has no clothes, but we won't say that. And that's why we're in this chaos. Yeah, but I do want to go to also because we're not just, you know, we don't just sit here and talk about chaos and say about how horrible it is. As you said, Dad, we're planning work next week that we can't even announce yet.
But, Cece, you also are engaged right now in serious work. So we're going to be all over the country next week and all over the world with our team. We've got people from all over the world working on this, literally. What's going to be happening at the UN? Well, right now, today, we sent a letter to the United Nations Security Council, the incoming President, which we do regularly. Letting them know that the Palestinian Authority cannot be considered a state, a member state at the UN. And so we added in this letter, of course, pointing out the atrocities of Hamas and that, obviously, the Palestinian Authority does not have their so-called Palestinian land under control because Hamas is in control of a lot of it. And they're absolute terrorists, and they have indiscriminately attacked innocent Israel, and therefore, they absolutely cannot be even considered as a state at the United Nations.
Of course, the incoming President today of the Human Rights Council, a Security Council, is China. I mean, okay, so, you know, so we know what happens with that letter. They don't even take it. So you know what we did? We sent it to every one of the other Security Council members.
That's right. So we sent it to, there's five permanent members. We sent it to all of them. By the way, these are demands for legal action.
Exactly. And we also sent it to the 10 non-permanent members. So they all have been put on notice that this is ridiculous, and what Hamas is doing and the Palestinian Authority is allowing is ridiculous and horrendous. You know, I think what we have to understand here is we are at a precipice moment. And I think we're launching this faith and freedom drive today, because faith and freedom are under attack by a global Islamist movement backed by Iran. And also, organizations in the past would not work together because of some religious Islamic differences are now uniting. I mean, you see the Houthis, you see all of these different, what's going on in Syria, U.S. troops being attacked, Iran, Turkey, a NATO ally, you know, saying they might send troops and they might send jets in, which would be our jets that they'd be training.
Yeah, think about that one for a minute. Maybe we shouldn't be so quick at giving them, you know, F-35s or whatever the current technology that we just gave them if they're going to do this stuff. If they're going to make threats like this to our ally. Yeah, maybe say, you know what, Erdogan, you're such a, by the way, big tough guy, okay? Take the jets away and take the American protection away and the American technology.
Do you think they want to rely on the Russian technology? I don't think so. I thought you were about to say, because the truth would be, if you took all of that away, I think he'd be hanging in the streets. Yeah. Because he almost ended up that way.
He almost ended up that way. I mean, here's the truth. The truth is, know who your friends are, know who your enemies are, and let's start calling it like it is. But we've got enemies inside the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security and a Homeland Security director that said he's the son of Holocaust survivors.
Well, that certainly should be more impetus for you, because you understand it, Mayorkas, director. You have to be more impetus for you to actually do something and not let some PLO sympathizer talking point or State Department foreign officer say this stuff. I just don't know how someone who, again, you can be an American dual citizen, but who is Palestinian and obviously a U.S. citizen, works for the PLO office in Washington, D.C. That office gets closed by the Trump administration, and then right when Biden's in, lands the job as an immigration official, again, to handle asylum claims from the Middle East. This is someone who posted on October 7th an image of the Hamas terrorist parachuting into Israel, I'm putting it up again, to kill Jews. This is someone, again, who said, F Israel, the government and its military, are you ready for your downfall? She's been placed on administrative leave, but she should have never gotten that job in the first place after losing the job with the Palestinian Authority because of the radicalization and terrorism they were supporting.
But that's who this, when she saw the Biden administration got in, she said, I got my next job, I'm going to be working for the U.S. government. So she's been working for the Palestinian Authority and the U.S. government, and she's not just doing her job and staying quiet about it. No, no, no, I'm going to put up hate images, I'm going to use curse words about how the Jews and Israelis are ready for their downfall. And remember this other employee, he's not just talking about Israel, Fritz Burgren, he's talking about Jews are the enemy, not Israel, Jews. I think he said, the enemy are Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews. These people are working and being paid by you to run our foreign service.
Maybe that's why there's war in Ukraine, war in Israel, and China's about to invade Taiwan. We're in our Faith and Freedom Drive, which we've launched today. Folks, I want to encourage you to support the work of the ACLJ. Any amount you donate is matched through Faith and Freedom Drive, and there's a lot to be praying for for this country and for other country allies as well as ACLJ.org. Keeping you informed and engaged, now more than ever, this is Sekulow.
And now your host, Jordan Sekulow. Folks, I got to tell you about this, and we keep pulling more information as it comes about, these two U.S. government officials. Because you think you'll be talking a lot, and we'll keep you updated, of course, what's happening on the ground in Israel with the war with Hamas. But sometimes it's important to also talk about how this is going to affect us here in the United States. Because Christopher Wray said the threat of terrorism here in the United States is on the highest levels it's been in years from Islamic terrorism.
And we now kind of have an interest of maybe why. For once, we look at someone like Najwa Ali. She is a DHS employee who handles asylum requests from Middle East countries. Her former job in 2016 and 2017, she worked for the Palestinian delegation to the U.S. She was ultimately barred from entering the U.S. under Trump.
But the Biden administration let her back in and gave her this job as the DHS employee on those asylum requests. This is what she has said since October 7th. I talked about the F-Israel, the government, its military.
Are you ready for your downfall? This is what she said about the Hamas terror attack. Respect our existence or expect resistance.
Simple, no apologies. On Facebook, Israeli-American privilege is disgusting. Say that again. Israeli-American privilege is disgusting. When Israelis acknowledge the government and military are solely responsible for the attack, period. I hold every Israeli accountable for their government's actions if they do not speak against Israel. When they say words like accountable, that means you can kill them under her language.
It goes further than that. She said, because you think, oh, maybe she's just talking about Israel. On October 9th, she posted a video with the caption, F-Israel and any Jew that supports Israel. She is working for the U.S. government. The United States has plenty of Jews and plenty of Jews working in the U.S. government. And she's saying that any Jew that would support the state of Israel, well, you know, I didn't want to say the word, but you know what she said.
On Instagram, this is all just since October 7th when you'd think she'd be a little bit quieter. Palestine will be free one day. F-apartheid Israel and any Israeli that supports that BS. F-you, may Allah forgive you and spare us the crocodile tears. I sure as heck give zero F. I mean, first of all, the language they're using could get them fired, I would think.
You would think. They're not getting fired. This government's going to do nothing. No, she's on leave. She'll be on leave. She'll get paid. She is getting paid. It's going to be like that doctor that said, if I have to, you know, give health care to a Jew, I'm going to kill them.
We got her suspended and de-licensed. But this is absurd. You think this would happen, by the way?
I'm going to, can I just say this? You think this would have happened under the previous administration with, you know what? I'll take the crazy tweets that you don't like sometimes and not have this.
That's a fair trade to make. This is ridiculous. And I'd like to see, we do have friends on the Democratic side here. Please speak out, Democratic members of Congress, and say we can't tolerate this. Chuck Schumer, the majority leader in the United States Senate, say it. This is outrageous what's going on here in our own government.
Yeah. It makes it where you think that, when you talk about the terrorists coming across the border, that's one thing. What about the terrorists this woman may have lent in? People with sympathies close to her who are waiting for these moments, like Chris Turay just confirmed yesterday, when they get activated.
And when I say activated, I mean people who would usually maybe just post these kind of statements. Now they're taken to the streets, Dad. We saw them take to the streets. They were pretty peaceful protests. Screaming, but peaceful. Now they're turning violent. You see what happened in London just yesterday?
They're a step away from people being beaten to death in the streets. How would you like to be a Jew in London? How would you like to be a Jew really anywhere if you run into one of these marches?
You would not. Folks, we launched today our faith and freedom drive, and the focus obviously is Israel. And we launched it, we planned to launch a drive in November, but we did not believe, and I think none of us thought we would ever see something like this.
We're seeing it in Israel, we're seeing it in the Middle East, and we're seeing it right here in the United States of America. Here at the ACLJ, we are uniquely positioned because of your support of our work, which we thank you for. We've assembled an incredible team of lawyers and government affairs officials that are working around the clock now, but we've got big meetings and big work next week in Washington. We've assembled this team to meet the challenge. We need you to help us meet our goal. Go to ACLJ.org. Any amount you donate, we're getting a match for. And if you can make that gift a recurring gift, you also not only become part of the faith and freedom group, you also become an ACLJ champion.
ACLJ.org, faith and freedom. Welcome back to the broadcast, everyone. We're joined now by our Senior Advisor for Global and International Affairs, former Acting Director of National Intelligence, Ambassador to Germany, our colleague Rick Rinnell. Rick, I am appalled at the disclosures yesterday of the State Department employee and then the Homeland Security employee.
The State Department employee, and you worked in the State Department for a long time, is a foreign service officer. Can we play what he said again? I mean, I hate playing this. And if you've got kids listening, I'm just going to say, turn it off for 30 seconds here. You know, turn the volume down. But, you know, you've got to hear this. This is what he said.
The Jews worship Satan and they're Satan's own children. Understand who our enemies are. Don't apologize. Never, ever, ever apologize for being white.
Never do that. Oh, you can't be racist or sexist or homophobic. Says who? He's an anti-Semite. He's, you know, he's a white supremacist and he's a senior foreign service officer in the United States State Department. And no one's doing a darn thing about it.
Look, what really is troubling for me is to see somebody who's so comfortable in the, you know, terrible comments. They're not only not factual. And I think that's what people at the State Department should focus on is here's a guy who is charged with being a foreign service officer representing America around the world. This isn't just a PR problem. He's actually pushing fake information. He's pushing lies. Not only is he an anti-Semite and all of those issues, but when the State Department decides to just say, oh, it's free speech and he gets to say whatever he wants, they're missing the fact that he's actually pushing lies as a foreign service officer, as someone who's representing the United States of America. So I would fire him. If I were in charge of the State Department, I would immediately fire him on the grounds of we cannot have individuals who so comfortably push lies and stupidity. I mean, this is what I want to know, Rick. How is he not fired? I mean, he wrote, this is, again, and on his podcast, you can get the videos, you can get the blogs.
It's not like you have to, it's not secret. He wrote Jews are the enemies of God and the children of the devil. Who's the enemy? It's the Jew. He said that Jesus Christ came to save the world from Jews.
They're the seed of the serpent that brewed of vipers. He said we are invaded, egged on by traitors and Jews who hate the white race. He is, again, currently an employee of the Department of State. They've confirmed his current employment, so he's not been put on leave at this point.
Maybe he will be soon, hopefully, but they get paid during that. He's a foreign service officer, and Rick, that's why I kept talking about it. Being a foreign service officer, Rick, is not, is a real job at the State Department.
I have friends, I remember in college, that was kind of like their first major goal was I'll get to grad school, I'll qualify for the language exam, then I've got to take the foreign service exam and go through that training to become a foreign service officer was a big deal. Look, I believe that if you're going to step up and say I want to represent America over these and I want to put the mantle of being an American representative, that there's a higher calling, there's a higher bar that you have to meet. Not only is he a problem for the State Department in terms of a PR issue and a problem for America in terms of a PR issue, but again, he's pushing lies. What he is saying is just not true and he's so comfortable in it. I have to ask the question, what are the other lies that he's comfortable pushing? What is he up to in terms of his thinking and his strategy?
I would question his work ethics, I would question how he formulates being a diplomat because he's so comfortable with pushing these lies. To me, Rick, also, we have another individual working inside DHS, their job is to defend our homeland. She used to work for the PLO, Trump administration shut that office down.
Biden administration hires her to handle asylum claims and immigration claims from the Middle East. On October 7th, she was posting on her social media a Hamas terrorist parachuting in to kill Jews in Israel. And she wrote, again, respect our existence or expect resistance.
Simple, no apologies. F Israel and any Jew that supports Israel. And you wonder who she's let into our country. Yes, she's making critical decisions about who gets to come in.
She's making critical decisions about the national security and safety of Americans. And yet here she is literally pushing the idea of. I find it very, very troubling that the Biden administration doesn't view this as a problem. They view this as just a free speech issue. And I think that is insane that they do that, that they don't understand. I mean, Christopher Wray is, you know, raiding pro-lifers with guns a blazing and they don't show up at the State Department saying, we need to talk to this guy. He's threatening Jews. I mean, that's to me is what's unreal here.
It's unreal. Also, Jay, no one is surprised that the Biden administration has lowered the bar for engagement with Iran and have they've allowed individuals to come in who clearly have been cozy and up to this regime. The American people need to understand the bar has been lowered by the Biden administration in terms of what we can deal with when it comes to a radical regime like Iran that will kill Jews, that wants to kill Americans. They want Israel to cease to exist.
And they also hate America. I don't understand why we would view these individuals as not treasonous to our country. Let's go to Bill in Wyoming on Line 3. Well, we've got Rick. Hey, Bill, welcome to Sekulow.
You're on the air. Yeah, thanks for taking my call. I agree with you.
I mean, I just get, I got really incensed watching that video about my orcas because the fact that as far as I'm concerned, he's insulting his heritage by saying he's a survivor, he's a descendant of the survivor of Holocaust. And yet he's allowing this to happen. Plus, the fact that I'd like to know exactly who this very person was that not only invited this gal back to the United States, but also hired her to... Okay, so let me tell you what we're doing.
We're going to initiate our FOIA process against to find out what we can find out here, which is important. But I think, and I appreciate your call, that the fundamental problem here is, Rick, is that these people are running portions of our government, including, as you said, the asylum issue. So she's handling asylum cases from the Middle East. She's a pro-Palestinian PLO operator, pro-Hamas person. Who do you think she's letting in or recommending for admission? First of all... Not my relatives, I'll tell you that.
Correct. Her supervisor should immediately go through all of the cases that she has handled to see how many times she just rejected someone if they were Jewish. How many times she allowed someone to come in if they had radical ideas. I mean, her judgment is totally impaired and she should not be in a position where she's determining who gets to come into our country.
Let's play again. This is Senator Josh Hawley just asking Mayorkas about this because it's one thing we talk about Hamas and Israel in the Middle East. It's one thing we talk about their sympathizers inside the U.S. Not their sympathizers, their actual employees inside the U.S. government.
Bite three. What about people who say things like on October the 7th, F Israel. I'm cleaning up the language here. F Israel, the government and its military. Are you ready for your downfall? People who say things like F Israel and any Jew who supports Israel.
May your conscience haunt your dreams until your last breath. Palestine will be free one day. F apartheid Israel and any Israeli. This is pretty extreme rhetoric, don't you think? Senator, I do and I think there is a distinction between espousing or endorsing terrorist ideology and speech that is odious that does not rise to that level. Fair enough.
This person works for you. Yeah. And by the way, that reached the level of threat and violence, okay? I mean, so Rick, who are we kidding here? Look, let's be very clear that that he is saying, Mayorkas is saying, a Biden administration official, a cabinet official of our U.S. government is saying this is free speech and it's protected and they should be allowed to do it.
I think higher bar when you are a government official representing the United States and making decisions about our safety and security, you cannot make terrible comments that are flatly wrong and be comfortable with it. Absolutely right. Absolutely right. I appreciate it, Rick. Thanks so much for being with us.
Thanks for your insight. Folks, we have launched today our Faith and Freedom Drive and I want to encourage you to do something right now. We're at a moment in history we prayed would never happen, but it has. We are experiencing global attacks on faith and freedoms in ways we could never imagine.
What we are witnessing in Israel could be the precursor to a second Holocaust, more Jews killed in that one day, October 7th, since the Holocaust. Here at the ACLJ, we are uniquely positioned to meet these evil attacks because of your support. We've assembled an elite legal team in our offices in Jerusalem, Washington, D.C., and around the globe. And all this happens because of you, our donors.
Can we get that music a little bit lower for me, please? Thanks. In order to meet the legal demands that we have to deal with head on here, we need your support now more than ever. The country needs you, the world needs you, Israel needs you, and we need you. Your gift will be doubled through our ACLJ Freedom Drive today.
Go to ACLJ.org slash faith and freedom. Jordan? Yeah, I just want to underscore that one more time. I mean, we need you at the ACLJ. We need you to be that supporter. The country, you know the country needs you. Think about the issues we're just facing today and the economic issues, the war, the world, but Israel needs you too. Join this faith and freedom drive.
Double your impact. ACLJ.org. Donate. We're going to get to some of your calls at 800-684-3110. Harry Hutchison, our director of policy, just joined us in the studio here. Harry, the situation with these students, we represent law students in Rutgers University Law School, and let me tell you, what they're experiencing there is unfortunately now typical of what's going on in campuses all over. Here's the concern. It's not just the students. It's also the faculties that are supporting this, Harry. How do you support what Hamas did as a member of a faculty of a prestigious university in the United States? Well, it's a very good question, but the faculty has allowed itself to be indoctrinated over a period of decades, and they have basically drunk from, if you will, the pit of ideology.
And so basically, they tell themselves that we can divide human beings into two specific categories, the oppressed and the oppressor, the victims and victimhood. And so they have skillfully encouraged their students to label Israel as the all-time oppressor, as an apartheid regime. As a consequence, we now see on campuses from Cornell to George Mason to Berkeley students who are suggesting that the throats of Jews be slit, that Jews be raped. And keep in mind, we're talking about American students, and we can see protests in London and in Paris. They're saying, gas the Jews.
They're carrying swastikas. And so what we are seeing is a worldwide revival of evil that I never expected to see in my lifetime. We've got a lot of our team here, and I want everybody to make a comment here. So we're also looking at UN-specific activity at the United Nations. We've already put the UNCC on notice. Let's give a quick recap on that. So we just sent a letter to the UN Security Council, and we notified them, as we do every month as a new President comes in, about the fact that the Palestinian Authority cannot have statehood declared by the UN General Assembly. And then we put them on more notice, drawing attention to the fact that the Palestinian Authority does not have any control over so-called Palestinian land, as Hamas is running rampant and they are absolute terrorists. Andy, we're also looking, as we help the students, you were on that call yesterday, and so we've got that going.
We'll talk to Jeff about that in a minute, but that is in the works as well. On the domestic side for the students. And we are looking to protect a student at a particular university. Well, we'll call it out then.
Rutgers Law School, who has been attacked, not physically attacked, but is scared for his personal safety because he is Jewish. And we are not going to tolerate that, and we're going to take action with respect to that as well. I want to play again, I want to get Jeff Balbon's comment, I want to play that statement of mine at the General Assembly of the United Nations.
Not to boast about the statement, but to say the day has come that I was hoping would never come. Make no mistake, the goal is unambiguous. The intent is clear. It is to create an environment so hostile that those students of you that are here today would be afraid to say the word, I am a Zionist, I am a Jew.
Never, never, on the memory of our families, should we allow that to take place and the least in the United States of America. And Jeff, unfortunately, here we are. Here we are, Jay. Here we are.
That's right. I grew up in New York, family of Holocaust survivors, and I will tell you that what took place in the lead up to the Holocaust is already dwarfed by what we're seeing, not just on the streets of the Middle East or Europe, but in the streets and campuses of America today. The support for an openly genocidal cause in the face of the most barbaric terror and the treatment of Jewish students who are literally afraid for their lives across the board is horrific.
And specifically, in some of these cases we're talking about here, it's been ongoing discrimination, ongoing messaging that is hostile to their very existence. You're absolutely right. Let's take Warren's call out of Idaho on Line 1. Warren, go ahead.
Hey, thanks for taking my call, guys. You know, you listen to all this stuff and what you're talking about now, and we're seeing the anti-Semitism. We have an enemy that's bigger than people.
We have a devil that hates people, but he really hates the Jews and Christians, and he's doing everything he can as fast as he can to destroy it right now on a global scale that is biblical. And it's like we've said before, we are literally fighting for the soul of our country, our democracy, and civilization right now, and I stand with the ACLJ. Thank you so much, Warren.
We appreciate that. I saw that message you did when I was off Radio Dead to pastors, you know, and I've heard it from a lot of Christians too who support Israel but just want more insight because they see the news and they say, well, I just wish that many kids didn't have to get killed when they bombed Hamas. What's the explanation? Then they learn about Hamas more and what Hamas is putting the kids in the way of it, and they're just more horrified at Hamas actually. But we've seen that movement that, you know, Christians have got to wake up too. Well, just like you said, I mean, it's the Jew first, the Christian next. Yes, the Saturday people and then the Sunday people.
I mean, that's exactly what this is. And, Jeff, what's the kind of the temperature reading in New York right now? It's got to be very, very tight, tense. People are afraid to go out in the streets being obviously Jewish. People are afraid to wear yarmulkes in the streets.
I'll tell you my... In New York. I mean, think about that for a minute. In New York. In the streets of New York, they're rampaging around, tearing down the images, people putting up signs of the hostages, pictures of their faces saying, please release them. And there's a rampage around New York, tearing them down.
There have been videos of some New Yorkers, not Jewish, standing up against this. It's not like America, the soul of America is dead. It's not like the soul of normal Americans are dead. But I think that has been beaten down for so long by all these forces telling us that we're all bad or all evil, when the truth is it's in service of this tremendous evil that is open.
As Jordan says, as you're saying, they're saying they call Israel the little Satan and America the great Satan. And let's also say this is not meant to scare Americans, but it's a wake up call. Look at what happened in Israel. I do not think it's not possible for it to happen here. We have untold tens of thousands of people with the same mindset who've come through our lack of a border over the last years. And this country is not as prepared. We got asylum officers that are PLO members that are letting them in, right, for the front door.
I mean, this isn't that you don't have to go in through the back door, go right in through the front door if you got these people running it. That's right. And we have Iranian agents making policy for our administration. Right.
It's for Homeland Security. All right. Here's what we've got, folks. We are at a moment in history that none of us thought would happen again.
But here we are. It has happened again. We're experiencing global attacks on faith and freedom in ways we can't imagine. It's happening in proportions we cannot imagine.
We are witnessing in Israel could be the precursor to the second Holocaust. Here at the ACLJ, we are uniquely positioned to meet these evil attacks head on. We've assembled an elite legal team.
You've seen or heard from a lot of them today in order to meet this challenge. We can't do it without your help. We need you more than ever. The country needs you more than ever. The world needs you more than ever. Israel needs you more than ever. And so does the ACLJ.
Now, folks, let me tell you something right here. This is where we need you to go to ACLJ.org forward slash faith and freedom and make a gift and it will be matched. Faith and freedom drive is in place because of the situation we find ourselves in. ACLJ.org forward slash faith and freedom. And if you can make that a recurring gift each month, you become a champion for the ACLJ. But this is the most important time in our history. It absolutely is, folks. An ACLJ champion, if you can make it recurring, but be, again, part of our faith and freedom drive. Double the impact of that donation. ACLJ.org. Do it today.
