SAQIB ALI
FOR DELEGATE

My name is Saqib Ali and I’m running for Maryland State Delegate from Legislative District 15 in Montgomery County. I am a proud Democrat and a long-time resident of North Potomac. I’m running because I want to make sure that our children inherit a Montgomery County with the best schools, roadways, public transportation systems and environment possible.

District 15 encompasses the Western and Northern parts of Montgomery County including all or parts of Potomac, Darnestown, Poolesville, Germantown, North Potomac, Boyds, Clarksburg, Dickerson and Beallsville. If a vacancy arises in the Maryland State Senate from District 15, I may switch to running for that State Senate seat. The Democratic primary election will be held on June 28, 2022.

@leibowitzadak Whichever you want. I'm agnostic on it.

@MJPlitnick: The late Uri Avnery once told me that a Palestinian child woken up in the dead of night to see her parent arrested or who is harassed daily on the way to school by settlers and soldiers needs no propaganda to hate Israel. @PeterBeinart agrees, as he responds to a Kahanist bigot https://t.co/YUparedCiB

When do you think boycotting is legitimate, and when is it not?

@SilvermanJacob: In 2015, the FBI uncovered a Saudi spy ring operating out of Twitter, reporting to the head of MBS's foundation. Activists believe KSA used this access to hunt down and disappear their friends. I talked to Saudis who are trying to hold Twitter accountable. https://t.co/xN1z6UKKBt

@naderalihashemi: MBS "pressured the Louvre to lie about the authenticity of a painting he had purchased in order to spare him the public humiliation of having spent $450 million on a fake." https://t.co/6g0CwYnoAO @MadawiDr @sarahleah1 @mehdirhasan @aalodah @JamalsNews

@tparsi: Imagine rejecting America's first Black President over this... "When Obama tried to join Woodmont Country Club, a predominantly Jewish club, some members tried to block him because they deemed his views on Israel to be insufficiently supportive." https://t.co/FgV5TjINMG

Florida Women goes on racist tirade against Muslim couple. "Israelis Rule", she tells them. Yes! Israelis do rule over Palestinians. And since they do, Palestinians should have full rights of Israeli citizenship including the ability to vote in Knesset elections. #OneManOneVote https://t.co/dFggmeWi2k

@jfarooqpak Yes! I find myself less interested in watching the news now, because it is quite boring.... Thankfully.

@mangolassi18 @brhodes Yes. Those countries ethnically cleansed Jews. And Israel ethnically cleansed Palestinans. All ethnic cleansing are deplorable. Any refugee (and their descendants) that didn't accept permanent resettlement in a third country retains their right to return.

@Issaamro: The kid lost his eye. The kid is very poor, he works in the vegetable shop where he was shot. His father was crying when I talked to him, he told me that he didn’t manage to send his son on time to get treatment in Israeli hospital because of the permit system. https://t.co/IF6DxG9y3b
