Staying on the topic of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, let me take you back a couple of years to September of 2015 and an investigative piece from Joe Kaufman in FrontPageMagazine titled “Broward Sheriff Ignored Unanimous Decision NOT to Hire CAIR Leader”, to which the sub header added beneath ran ‘Sheriff Scott Israel compromises his office and the security of the community’.
My admittedly sarcastic response on coming across this, ran along the lines of: In an effort to show they are not partial to the nation of Israel and that they bear no grudges towards Muslims and that they are good DemoMarxists to boot, Jewish public office holders (ie the likes of Scott Israel, especially running a police state) more often than not bend over backwards to befriend Muslims – even when such actions put the community in jeopardy.
Most American law enforcement agencies are engaged in protecting the communities they preside over from Islamic extremists who are threats to those communities. However, in the Broward County, Florida Sheriff’s Office, under the leadership of Sheriff Scott Israel, Islamic extremists are embraced. And not only are they embraced, but they are brought into the Sheriff’s department, itself.
Nezar Hamze (Nezar Jason Nazih Hamze) is the Regional Operations Director of the Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Essentially, he is the number two leader of the statewide chapter. Prior to that, he held the position of Executive Director for the chapter. Today, Hamze is a gun-toting Deputy Sheriff in the Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO).
Take a look at Joe Kaufman’s opener (this was September 2015 remember) …
When Sheriff Scott Israel made the decision to hire Florida CAIR leader Nezar Hamze as a Deputy Sheriff at the Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO), he did so knowing that Hamze was involved with a Muslim group with, at the very least, a questionable background. And he did so against the advice of three ranking officials from the Sheriff’s office, who refused to recommend Hamze a little over one year prior to Hamze’s hiring.
This past July, Sheriff Israel appeared on the Joyce Kaufman Show, a radio program based in South Florida, to counter this author and voice his side of the Hamze hiring. During the show, he told the host that he was “very familiar with CAIR.”
Since the Sheriff is so familiar with CAIR or the Council on American-Islamic Relations, surely he would know that CAIR was founded by individuals associated with Hamas. Indeed, CAIR was established as part of a terrorist umbrella organization led by the then-global head of Hamas, Mousa Abu Marzook, who was based in the United States at the time.
And surely he would know that a number of former officials from CAIR are currently serving jail sentences or have been deported from the United States for terrorist-related crimes.
Now let me fast-forward to today (actually a few months ago during last year’s Ramadan) and this very revealing video released just a few days ago featuring the self-promoting Scott Israel and his fawning over Nezar Hamze and the entire Muslim group (minus females of course) staring at him with pure insouciance in their eyes … So much for CAIR and attention (pun intended).
Since CAIR’s founding, a number of representatives for the group have been imprisoned in and/or deported from the U.S. for various reasons related to terrorist activity. CAIR itself was named a co-conspirator by the US government for two federal trials dealing with the financing of Hamas. And the hierarchy of CAIR is still intact, as the national office’s founding Executive Director, Nihad Awad, and founding Communications Director, Ibrahim Hooper, still hold the same positions.
None of this is of any consequence to Sheriff Scott Israel, who has stood shamelessly by the Islamist Hamze in the face of scrutiny backed up by evidence disseminated by this author and others. The Sheriff has continued to loudly sing Hamze’s praises, while refusing to admit that he made an error in judgement and compromised national security when he hired Hamze for the job only one year ago. Indeed, it was Israel himself who referred Hamze for the job.
According to his “Application for Employment” for the position of Certified Reserve Deputy Sheriff, which was dated June 1, 2014, when asked for the “Employee Who Referred You,” Hamze wrote, “Scott Israel.” And later, when asked “Were you referred by a Broward Sheriff’s Office employee?” Hamze answered, “Yes” and said the employee was “Scott Israel.”

America has forever been full of the ‘enemies within’ and the current generation is seemingly no different. But as I constantly trumpet (pun intended) our nationalism, populism, and a new courageous president is all that stands in the way of this threat. A real threat that we ignore at our peril.
Thank God for President Donald J. Trump – MAGA!
