Power Line – The Ugly News at St. Thomas
(Description note, “Muhammad was the president of the UST chapter of the Muslim Student Association before his election in April 2016 as head of the UST student government. His comments about Jews and supporters of the state of Israel covered a two-year period from 2014 to 2016, not long before his election as student president. During that time, he repeatedly gave coarse expression to his hatred. For instance, in July 2014 he wrote: “If you support Israel in anyway, shape, or form, please unfollow me right now cause those people are the scum of the earth.” For full documentation, see here.”)

Inside Higher Ed – Student Body President Under Scrutiny for Tweets
(Description note, “The student body president at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota is under scrutiny for anti-Semitic tweets he posted almost three years ago, The Star-Tribune reported…The president of St. Thomas, a private, Catholic liberal arts college in St. Paul, rejected Muhammad’s anti-Semitic comments in a statement last week and said the university would not tolerate hate speech. ‘It is deeply disappointing that the president of our student government or any other member of the St. Thomas community would be accused of anti-Semitic discourse,’ President Julie Sullivan said. Among the comments posted on Muhammad’s Canary Mission profile is one tweet that says, ‘If you support Israel in any way, shape or form, please unfollow me right now ’cause those people are the scum of the earth.’ Another reads, ‘The yahood [Jews] will get what [sic] coming for them Insha’Allah.’ ‘I am absolutely sorry and regret that I chose my words so poorly,’ Muhammad told The Star-Tribune. ‘What these organizations are portraying me to be is an anti-Semite, and that is something that I am not.’”)
