Letter to the Editor– Josh Mandel’s hatred of Muslims

Josh Mandel is running for the US Senate in 2022. He is well-known for making outrageous statements on social media that are intended to attract media attention. Mandel seems to have nothing better to do during the global pandemic than to attack Governor DeWine, Lebron James, and U.S. Lawmakers Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar to name a few. 

Mandel, who is Jewish, also blasted the Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish civil rights group, and accused it of being a partisan witch-hunt targeting people for political beliefs. Mandel was censored by Twitter for inciting hate against Muslims and Mexicans and was also banned by FaceBook for 30 days for violation of posting rules. 

After Team System DZ hacked three government websites, including Ohio with pro-ISIS messages in 2017, Mandel, went on a rampage by posting absurd anti-Muslim messages on his Facebook. That was even before the FBI’s Ohio field office would confirm the identity of the hackers. His messages read, “Wake up freedom-loving Americans” and “Radical Islam is infiltrating the heartland” without any evidence are nothing more than incitement and misinformation campaign against Muslims. 

 It is absolutely amazing that a Jew such as Mandel has such a short memory about where such prejudice leads.
