Lamis Deek is a Palestinian-American Lawyer and a former board member of the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) from New York who openly supports terror organizations such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah, and the PFLP, endorses violent intifada (uprising) against Jews, and spreads horrific lies about the Jewish nation.
Deek is an ardent supporter of the antisemitic Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement. She is a co-founder of the Al-Awda New York chapter which is a part of the anti-Israel hate network established by our previous ‘Antisemite of the Week’ Abbas Hamideh. Abbas is a supporter of terror organizations and known for advocating for violence against Jews and killing of Israelis.
She is also affiliated with groups that are dedicated to intimidating and terrorizing Jewish students on college campuses such as Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and American Muslims for Palestine (AMP).
Deek is a known to also promote anti-American sentiments. In 2012 she claimed that the world media and press, and even cartoons such as Bugs Bunny, were perpetuating racist anti-Islamic notions. She also accused the U.S. Department of Defense of financing anti-Islamic propaganda films.
In 2018, Deek shamefully tweeted condolences for killed Hamas terrorists who operated Gaza’s terror tunnel network stating “LONG LIVE NOUR BARAKEH, MOUSTAPHA ODEH AND ALL PALESTINIAN MARTYRS.”
In May 2021, as antisemitic attacks against Jews in America were skyrocketing, Deek outrageously posted antisemitic libel to social media stating that Israel kidnaps and tortures Palestinian children on a daily basis. These vile and baseless claims create a dangerous domino effect, furthering hatred and violence towards Jewish people and putting them in danger.
This past week, Deek caused outrage as she targeted a Jewish man who was relocating to Israel. She stood outside his house shouting false and antisemitic accusations against him and the Jewish people through a megaphone.
Deek falsely accused the man of invading Palestinian homes and engaging “in the genocide and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.” She also absurdly claimed that Jews move to Israel from America, Canada, and Europe in order to commit war crimes. She then pointed to the man’s home, referred to him as a criminal, and posted a fake eviction notice on his door.
We need YOUR help to stop Lamis Deek from targeting and defaming Jews in America – please email the Attorney Grievance Committee of the First Judicial Department (AGC) and demand she is investigated for antisemitism and targeted harassment of Jews.
