***Update-The Islamic Republican Club coming to Broward County?

by Javier Manjarres

Nezar Hamze, the Florida Director of the Center for Islamic American Relations (CAIR) has told the Shark Tank that he intends  to join the local Broward Republican Executive Committee (BREC) and ask for a club charter to start the first ‘Islamic-Republican club’ in the county.  Hamze said that he spoke to Broward GOP Chairman Richard DeNapoli about his intentions and indicated that DeNapoli did not deny him the opportunity to start an Islamic-Republican club or join the committee.  Hamze is best known for his confrontation with Congressman Allen West earlier this year during which he questioned West with a Koran in hand asking him to point out verses in the Koran where it tells believers to “kill Americans”. 

Hamze considers himself as being ‘very conservative’ and believes his political views are in-line with the Republican party’s political platform. The local GOP Chairman ran for his current position on a ‘GOP Unity’ platform, and said he would work with ‘all’ Republicans in the county.  The ‘big tent’ Broward Republican party already has a religion-based club/coalition, named the Broward Republican Jewish Outreach.  That begs the question- will there be an Broward Republican Islamic Outreach club in the near future?


***Update- Nezar Hamze has followed through with his intentions of joining the local REC by submitting his formal application to the BREC. 

Hamze furnished the tracking number below, and cited that he would be shielding  his address for fear of reprisals by his detractors-
