REPORT: Iqra Khalid Called Man Accused Of Spreading Antisemitism Her “Rock” And “Brother”

Khalid claims she only just learned of Amin El Maoued’s extremist views. But how does she explain ignoring criticism of her connection to him for over a year, and how does she explain honouring his group after it previously lost federal status for connections to extremism?

As I recently reported, Iqra Khalid rescinded an award given to alleged anti-Semite Amin El Maoued.

El Maoued is the public relations chief for Palestine House, a group that was stripped of federal status by the Conservative government in 2012 over their pattern of connections to extremism.

El Maoued has been accused of making anti-Semitic statements, and participating in events that featured vile anti-Semitic rhetoric.

After Khalid gave him a government award in August of 2018, there was a large backlash, with people questioning why she would honour someone like that.

Under pressure, Khalid backtracked, rescinded the award, and said she wasn’t aware of his views.

But people aren’t buying it.

After all, Khalid gave him another award in April, 2018, and refused to respond to critics who pointed out his rhetoric at that time.

Additionally, she has praised El Maoued in the past, including saying “Today, on behalf of myself and the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, I want to recognize the great work that brother Amin has done for us and for Mississauga-Erin Mills. Thank you.”

She also called him her “rock”, as well as a “strong ally for myself, for the Palestinian community within Mississauga.”

Those comments were made in a Facebook video – which unsurprisingly has been taken down.

So, it seems that Khalid knew exactly who El Maoued was when she praised him and made it clear that she is incredibly close to him.

Conservative Senator Linda Frum has pointed out how crazy it is to think Khalid and the Trudeau Liberals weren’t aware of who El Maoued really is:

Nobody can believe Iqra Khalid or Justin Trudeau when they claim not to know who El Maoued is. They know exactly who he is, and they were glad to take his money and his political support until it became embarrassing.

Trudeau & Khalid have only further confirmed that they are the ones pushing hatred and division in Canada, and they are increasingly dangerous to the future of our nation.

You hit the nail on the head this time Spencer–kudos to you.


Appointing people with definite anti Canadian values in positions of power lead to the destruction of the Canadian identity ( not to be interpreted as Trudeau s DIVERSITY ) … Trudeau has no problems with this … you conclude what the logical result is


I personally don’t think Iqra Khalid has rescinded anything from this man… How can she when she thinks he is her rock. What may happen, he will keep his award with the pretense that she has done something about it.
One thing for sure, the Jerusalem post will keep a close watch eye on her and those who hate them. Canadian fake news will no doubt do nothing nor follow through on whether Iqra descended the award or not. Her word is good enough for them to believe.

Maxime Bernier’s comment on the retraction:
“Iqra M103 Khalid Again.
So, some beliefs are not acceptable in our infinitely diverse multicultural fabric?
Immigrants who bring their conflicts and hatred here are not welcome?
There is line to be drawn somewhere after all?
I’m shocked!!!”


Once again the mainstream media is giving Trudeau a ride. Where is the outrage for his involvement in this. Khalid is and should be taking heat on this, but she said that the award was on behalf of her and Trudeau. Astonishing! He enjoys the love-fest when it works for his political optics, but when things go sour he is mum on everything. And worse what does the Liberal cupcake leader do? He takes another personal day. Next government please!


Nope not a word from Scheer on Iqua Khalid and her anti Canadian deeds, he is busy refuting the remarks from Maxime Bernier, ” No Bernier does not represent or speak for the Conservative party” says Scheer, so it is OK to hate the Jewish Community, it is OK to hate the white community, it is OK to hate Christians and anyone else who is not Muslim. So Scheer is supporting this racism, non Canada agenda with the Lieberal/NDP, and would like Canadians to all become muslim and worship them ? I cannot believe he is not for all Canadians,… Read more »


Because we welcome radicals and extremists to run our government and give out awards to their friends and our mainstream media supports it.

Perhaps its worth the investigation of Trudeau & Khalid AND the party into their connection with terrorism. This party seems all to favourable to terrorists.

No shame. These Liberal MP hypocrites really believe Canadians believe Iqra Khalid’s attempt to deceive and lie her way out of this intentional behavior of handing out rewards like prizes in a crackerjack box to those who are anti-Semitic. Not buying her BS. Canadians should demand MP Khalid resign her position immediately for her support of racism and divisiveness. She’s the person behind bill M-103 which restricts criticism of Islam, yet she supports this anti-Semitic low life Amin El-Maoued. Also, Liberal parliamentary secretary to Minister of Heritage, Arif Virani has demanded Andrew Scheer “kick hateful Bernier out.” Ironic how Arif… Read more »

Khalid’s apology is completely insincere, as an apology from a politician usually is. Their rule is to do whatever you want, support whomever you wish, and if it blows up in your face, merely apologize and the media will see it goes away quickly.
The LPC and Iqra Khalid know perfectly well about El-Maoud and undoubtedly every unsavory aspect of his background, but he helps bring them votes, and that is all that counts.

Senator Frum is spot on in her estimation of this instance.

Bernard Hutchinson

I think that these two: to start with, Trudeau & Iqra Khalid should resign or perhaps charge them with treason. What kind of Government do we have in Ottawa. Some of this stuff is straight out of some sort of sedition novel! If Canadians don’t vote out Trudeau & the Liberals in 2019 then prepare for Sharia Law creep amoungst other despicable things to come for Canada! What kind of idioligy are these people spreading! Surely Canadians must be catching on to these people by now and what they really stand for & it’s not Canada as I know it!… Read more »

Scheer is a child of the Canadian political system,has been since he was in grade school, and to him, the system works just fine. Scheer is not driven by ideology, or a zeal to right wrongs, he is just another BA grad in political science who entered politics because he saw a good career opportunity, and so far it has worked very well for him. Scheer was first elected at age 25, has served 14 years in parliament, and made it first to the House Speaker’s position, then to the Number Two position in all of Canada, Leader of the… Read more »

Canadians are too busy picking their noses and besides the MSM media will not divulge this info. Ready to dawn a greasy beard and pyjamas with a Koran in the hip pocket?

A fake Canadian…an impostor to Canadian values… a threat to our nation…
