FIRST ON FOX: A Palestinian activist with a history of anti-Semitic social media posts and deep ties to “Squad” Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., has campaigned with multiple Democrats over the last year, Fox News Digital has learned.

Maher Abdel Qader, who has deep political ties to Democratic politicians and currently serves as a Vice President at AI Engineers in New York, has repeatedly promoted anti-Semitic conspiracy theories over the years, sharing an article on Facebook in 2016 that said Jews are “satanic” and “practice subversion and treason,” according to research from TPS shared with and verified by Fox News Digital.

In 2017, he shared a graphic that included the names of a couple dozen Jewish members of Congress and suggested that they have dual loyalty to Israel and the United States, which is one of the anti-Semitic tropes that got Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., in hot water in 2019.
