  • Elder of Ziyon
From the conspiracy site American Free Press ("America's last real newspaper"):
Ibrahim “Abe” Ayad, a Dearborn, Mich. born and raised American patriot, has decided to convert a parcel of land in Israel, which his family has owned for decades, into a living memorial to the 34 Americans needlessly slaughtered and 174 wounded, while serving aboard the USS Liberty (AGTR-5), by Israeli air and naval forces on June 8, 1967, during the Six-Day War.
The article goes on to give an outlandish story of how his grandmother acquired the land in Beit Hanina and how the ADL (!)  has been trying to take it away from him. The story has enough holes to fill the Albert Hall:

“When [my dad, a US army soldier] got wounded [in Italy in WWII], he was lost for three days at a MASH unit during the air war,” said Ayad. “So the Army, in its infinite wisdom, had sent my grandmother a letter telling her he was dead. My grandmother couldn’t read English, so she took it to the village elder [who] told her, ‘Your son is dead.’ And she said, ‘He’s not dead. If he was dead I’d believe it.’ ”

Refusing to believe her only child was dead, she prepared for his return from the war.

“She was working as a nurse at a local hospital and they were trying to trick an old lady whose son they thought had died. They’d come and they’d pawn their land to her,” said Ayad, “and she’d buy it and put it in his name.”

When Ayad’s father eventually returned home, “everybody thought he was a ghost.” As his grandmother had accumulated a significant amount of land, the illegal occupation government of Israel began to make moves on it. [What happened between 1945 and 1967 is a bit unclear since the land was in Beit Hanina....]

“All of a sudden Israel starts confiscating this land, doing all kinds of stuff to it,” said Ayad. It “was illegally confiscated even according to Israeli law, because it’s occupied territory. It can’t be taxed, and they confiscated it for tax purposes.”

Ayad tried to fight them, but Israel sicced its U.S.-based public relations firm on him.

I’ve been fighting the Anti-Defamation League for 20 years,” he said, “and they wielded their influence over the [U.S.] Department of Justice. Even James Comey came down personally to oversee their raid against me. They robbed me of over $3 million—and this is my own government, who I pay taxes for, doing all this to me.”

Abe Ayad had a gas station in Cleveland that was raided by the FBI a couple of years ago. His son and nephew, both of whom had criminal records, were arrested on gun charges. His gas station was famous for regularly posting antisemitic and anti-Israel  signs and murals.



He sold the site in 2016.

He isn't exactly the most trustworthy person.

But possibly the most outlandish part of the absurd story is that he claims that Israel is anti-American:
Ayad then discussed his plans for the Liberty memorial, which he first started thinking about five or six years ago.
I don’t see any memorials in Israel: not for World War I, not for World War II,” he explained. “[Israel owes] the United States so much from two world wars, not counting all the financial and military hardware [it’s] getting from America. I would love to see a USS Liberty Memorial Hospital for all the victims of the Liberty, her crew, and all the victims that suffered after and all the victims that have suffered in two world wars and since. And it’s about time they honor America.”
Israel has memorials for World War I. It has a memorial for John F. Kennedy. It has a memorial for 9/11. It has an entire Liberty Bell Park honoring America.

I don't see any of those in "Palestine" or in any Arab country.

Obviously, Ayad is lying about building anything in Israel (although it is fascinating that he considers Beit Hanina to be part of Israel.)  He is a bitter man who has nothing but hate to animate him, and this website is the perfect place for him to spout his crackpot Jew-hatred.
