The Philadelphia Mayor and City Council have been unresponsive to the need to thoroughly investigate and fully report to the public and federal officials the April 2019 video of Muslim children performing anti-Semitic skits and singing violent songs.

Florida Family Association issued an alert titled “Philadelphia officials need to reveal details of investigation regarding video of Muslim children performing anti-Semitic skits and singing violent songs.”  The alert encouraged people to send emails that urged the Philadelphia Human Relations Commission to reveal to the public and federal officials the details of its investigation into the April 2019 video of Muslim children from a Philadelphia mosque performing anti-Semitic skits and singing violent songs.   The Philadelphia Human Relations Commission has been unresponsive.  The Philadelphia Human Relations Commission is comprised of members appointed by the Philadelphia mayor.   Jim Kenney is Philadelphia’s mayor.

The Daily Wire published an article on September 27, 2019 titledCongressmen Demand Answers About Horrifying Anti-Semitic Video In Philadelphia.  The article reports in part:

Two U.S. congressmen are asking the Philadelphia Human Relations Commission to reveal the details of its investigation into the April 2019 video of Muslim children from a Philadelphia mosque performing anti-Semitic skits and singing violent songs.

The shocking video was presented by the Muslim American Society Islamic Center and Masjid A-Hidaya Mosque in Philadelphia in celebration of “Ummah Day.” As reported at the time by The Daily Wire, the video featured Muslim children singing,

Muslim children's Video “We will chop off their heads … we will lead the army of Allah fulfilling his promise, we will subject them to eternal torture … we will defend the land of divine guidance with our bodies … sacrifice our souls without hesitation."

But more than five months have elapsed — with no follow-up from the Commission regarding its findings. Recently, Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) and Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) sent a letter to the Commission’s executive director, Rue Landau, requesting an update of its findings and asking whether further investigation needs to be made by the U.S. Department of Justice.  Contacted about the letter, Landau did not respond.

The Philadelphia City Council has not taken action, either. While Philadelphia Councilman Curtis Jones prepared a city council resolution in outrage over Pennsylvania Representative Delegate Stephanie Borowicz’s references to Jesus in a State House invocation during the swearing-in of Muslim State Representative Movita Johnson-Harrell, there has been no similar resolutions or outrage over the Muslim American Society’s promotion of songs about beheading Jews. Calls and emails to Jones and other councilmen asking if they too would add their voices in requesting an update from the Commission were ignored.


George Parry writes at the Philadelphia Inquirer Will the Philadelphia Human Relations Commission conduct a serious and thorough investigation?

The Muslim American Society has publicly condemned the words used in the video and stated that its “investigation revealed that the [unnamed] school that organized the event … is a separate entity renting space from MAS Philadelphia. The school board informed us that it has taken immediate actions and dismissed the person in charge of the program.  “This was an unintended mistake and an oversight in which the center and the students are remorseful. MAS will conduct an internal investigation to ensure this does not occur again.”

MAS’ explanation raises many questions.  Is its denunciation of the event sincere or is it simply deflecting blame because it got caught in the act of orchestrating a pint-size hate fest? If MAS is telling the truth, what school organized the event and who is on that school’s board? Is this a publicly funded school? Who does it employ, and who got fired? Has it engaged in similar activities in Philadelphia?

How did it come about that MAS rented its facility to such an organization? Are we to believe that MAS had no idea about the alleged renter’s purpose or what type of event was about to take place at the center? Was this a one-time only “unintended mistake” or have other similar activities taken place at the center? What other activities have MAS and the unnamed school sponsored? Are there other affiliated organizations spreading similar hate in Philadelphia?

These and hundreds of related and equally hard questions need to be answered, and the PCHR is certainly authorized to pose them. But will it do so?

The PCHR has announced that it is investigating the incident and working with interfaith groups to improve cooperation and understanding. But the fact remains that this “celebration” was a call for the shedding of Jewish blood, which warrants neither understanding nor sympathy but outright condemnation. And it requires not mediation but an uncompromising, top-to-bottom investigation.

Is the PCHR up to the task? Investigating and holding public hearings about offensive signage at cheesesteak shops and TransPass gender discrimination is one thing. Probing the Muslim American Society at the risk of being accused of anti-Islamic and anti-Arab prejudice is quite another. So, will the PCHR use its full resources without fear or favor to lay bare all the facts and circumstances underlying this despicable event?

In short, does it have the courage to thoroughly investigate those persons in Philadelphia who are teaching children the joys of butchering, decapitating, and torturing Jews?
