Meet Moustafa Zarandah, A Business Manager For An Edmonton Car Dealership By Day, And In Our View, A Disseminator Of Jew-Hating, Terrorist-Glorifying Propaganda By Night

A proverb of unknown origin posits that “a man is known by the company he keeps.”

If that is true, then a prominent anti-Israel pressure organization which presents itself as a legitimate voice of advocacy for the Palestinian cause, Canadians for Justice & Peace in the Middle East (CJPME) should do some major reflection as to the company it keeps.

Professionally, Moustafa Zarandah, who also goes by the first name “Moose,” is a Business Manager for Crosstown Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, a car dealership in Edmonton. He is also listed as a “local organizer working with CJPME” in Edmonton who has been quoted in local media.

But Zarandah is also, in our view, a shameless disseminator of rabid Jew-hate and terrorist-supporting propaganda on social media.

Zarandah, who was born in Qatar, but who has lived in Edmonton since 2000, is the co-founder of Run for Palestine in the Alberta cities of Edmonton, Calgary and Fort McMurray.

On October 9, 2023, only two days after Hamas’ genocidal massacre in southern Israel, the largest mass killing of Jews since the Holocaust, Zarandah celebrated the murders on his Instagram page with close to 1,400 followers.

Along with a graphic depicting Gaza enveloping all of Israel, Zarandah wrote in Arabic “It is not a dream…it is all ours and its liberation is certain,” alongside the hashtag #Al-Aqsa Flood, Hamas’ name for the murderous attack.

HonestReporting Canada has independently verified the translation of Zarandah’s words from the original Arabic.

Yet as the Hamas-provoked war wore on, which saw thousands of Hamas terrorists killed by Israeli soldiers, Zarandah became decidedly less “certain” about Gaza’s “liberation,” and instead pivoted to sharing anti-Jewish content instead.

On April 6, 2024, Zarandah took to his Instagram page to share a meme which quoted Theodor Herzl, the founder of the modern Zionist movement, as calling for an increase in anti-Jewish attacks so as to support the Zionist cause.

The quote, unsurprisingly, is a fabrication, but that did not stop Zarandah from shamelessly rewriting history, and he captioned his post by writing “It’s always ‘you are an anti semite’. But it’s never” you are a lier.” (sic)

Zarandah may very well be a liar (or lier, as he would prefer), or simply breathtakingly ignorant, but either way, his social media is chock-full of hateful nonsense.

On May 7, 2024, he posted a video to his Instagram account with the caption “No words left to say.” In the video, an individual is examining human remains alongside the caption, in Arabic “O Allah, annihilate the Zionists, the Jews and their allies.”

While many anti-Israel fanatics have sought to hide their Jew-hate behind terms such as “anti-Zionism,” with this social media post, Zarandah made no such attempt to obscure his hateful bigotry, instead sharing it seemingly without any concern for consequences.

Zarandah’s social media has also included the glorification of the Islamic terrorist organization Hamas.

In one post on December 30, 2023, Zarandah shared an image of 2023 becoming 2024, with the 3 in 2023 depicted as Israel, and the 4 depicted as the logo of Hamas’ Al-Qassam Brigades, clearly indicating that Hamas would replace Israel in the coming year.

On March 26, Zarandah took to Instagram to glorify Ahmed Yassin, the founder of Hamas who was killed by Israel in 2004. Zarandah, rather than condemning the bloodthirsty butcher who was responsible for the deaths of countless Israeli civilians, praised the murderous jihadist, writing in Arabic “Oh the eagle of my land, may Allah have mercy on you.”

In the accompanying image, depicting Yassin, an Arabic singer croons “We say to you: you are blessed, you are blessed, you are blessed with martyrdom in the path of Allah. The Lord chose you.”

In one April 23 post, Zarandah shared a poster of a Hamas fighter which read in Arabic “Allah is victorious over his affairs, but most people don’t know that.”

The previous day, he posted a soliloquy mourning the death of Abdul Majeed al-Zindani, a Yemeni terrorist who had worked with Osama Bin Laden, the mastermind of the September 11, 2011 terrorist attacks.

While Zarandah presents himself as a professional and an upstanding member of Edmonton society, on social media he has, in our view, shared Jew-hating and terrorist-glorifying content.
