A Democratic Party caucus chairman who told the Free Beacon that Jewish people were not killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks has apologized for trafficking in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
Following the Free Beacon’s report on MD Rabbi Alam, a Democratic official and Obama campaign alumnus vying to become Missouri’s next Secretary of State, the candidate offered his apologies when confronted by a Jewish website.
After being emailed and seeing evidence that, in fact, Jews were killed in this national tragedy, Mr. Alam offered his apologies and explained that he had been convinced by the material he had read on the internet regarding the issue.
Alam was then put in touch with other people who personally knew other Jewish 9-11 victims.
Alam then expressed some outrage that such misinformation could appear and promised that he would confront those sources. He requested that VINNEWS convey his sincere apologies to those who have been hurt by his initial claims.
