Jewish Federation Of Greater Philadelphia Calls For Philly NAACP President To Resign After Anti-Semitic Facebook Post

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The president of the Philadelphia chapter of the NAACP is under fire for allegedly sharing an anti-Semitic post on his Facebook page. Now, the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia is asking for Rodney Muhammad’s resignation.

“We feel the leader of that organization can’t be a divider,” Steven Rosenberg, the COO of Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, said. “He has to be a unifier. The post was an awful mistake. It was divisive in every possible way. Very anti-Semitic. A leader of an organization of that magnitude has to be more careful.”

The post reportedly showed actor and rapper Ice Cube, Eagles star DeSean Jackson and TV host Nick Cannon and a man crushing people with his hand. It had the quote “to learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”



The post has since been taken down.

Eyewitness News has reached out to Muhammad for comment, but have yet to hear back.

“I’ve seen the meme posted on social media. I oppose offensive speech of any kind directed at any ethnic, racial or religious group. We must come together as a people to solve the many issues magnified by COVID-19 and the unrest over systemic racism in our country,” Council President Darrell L. Clarke said in a statement.

Pennsylvania Leaders Join Calls For Philadelphia NAACP President To Resign Over Anti-Semitic Facebook Post

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Pennsylvania Gov. Tom "Nostrils" Wolf and Attorney General Josh Shapiro are joining others in calling for Philadelphia NAACP President Minster Rodney Muhammad to resign. It comes after an anti-Semitic post on Muhammad’s Facebook page.

The post was later taken down.

On Tuesday, Black and Jewish leaders came together in a show of unity against racism, anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry.

“The NAACP and any other organization that claims it’s concerned and wraps its arms around humanity and dignity for all people has to acquire a standard of its leaders. And that standard can not allow for a slip of the tongue, a mistake of a thought, but most importantly, publicly posturing around racism and anti-Semitism,” Pennsylvania State Sen. Anthony Williams said.

On Monday, Muhammad issued a statement, saying he removed both the “offensive image” and that it was never his intention to offend anyone or cause any hurt.
