As a lifelong fan of the New York Jets, Cahnman’s Musings was disappointed and disturbed to read this report from Breitbart Sports yesterday.
Last April, the Jets used their fifth round draft pick to select Oday Aboushai, a Palestinian (*) offensive linemen who was born in Samaria and grew up in Brooklyn. While Aboushai possesses physical stature, he lacks athleticism. The football justification for this pick is questionable.
Aboushai’s life off-field, however, includes the following:
- Denying Israel’s right to exist
- Attending a conference whose organizers have praised Hitler and denied the Crucifixion.
This is an alarming draft pick. The Jets owe fans an explanation, especially after theirshameful treatment of Tim Tebow. It appears the New York Jets are more concerned with faithful Christians than open terrorist sympathizers.
Cahnman’s Musings urges readers to contact the following institutions:
