Democrat Running Against Texas Sen. Ted Cruz Receives Massive Donations from Anti-Israel Funders

Democratic Senate candidate Colin Allred has accepted thousands of dollars in campaign donations from activists with anti-Israel affiliations, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

Amid a surge in antisemitism following Hamas's incursion into Israel last October, Allred asserted his firm rejection of "antisemitism in all forms" and reiterated his unwavering support for Israel's right to self-defense.

Records show that over time, his campaign has received contributions from individuals associated with anti-Israel sentiments, with no public response from his team regarding these donations.

During his bid for a House seat, Allred received a $312 donation from Ibrahim Alhusseini, a venture capitalist and environmentalist who expressed understanding for Palestinian animosity towards Israelis.

Alhusseini's statement on social media in February 2018 defended Palestinian resentment towards Israel, citing the conditions imposed upon them.

Furthermore, Allred received a $500 donation in 2018 from Azhar Azeez, then-president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). Azeez played a role in establishing the Dallas Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) chapter, which advocated for the release of Aafia Siddiqui, a convicted felon with ties to terrorist organizations.

Among other donors with anti-Israel viewpoints is Lorraine Leblanc, who contributed $750 to Allred's campaign. Leblanc criticized Israel's policies, describing them as oppressive and likening them to apartheid.

Additionally, Nichole Mossalam, who served as the Executive Director of the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB) Cambridge from 2013 to 2016, donated $500 to Allred's campaign.

The ISB Cambridge branch was frequented by individuals associated with terrorist groups, including the perpetrators of the Boston Marathon bombing.

These revelations add to concerns about Allred's associations, including his allocation of taxpayer funds to groups focusing on racial equity and identity education for young children.

He also faced criticism for his remarks suggesting the Second Amendment would have been better off unwritten.
