The JFGP says the NAACP has refused to remove Muhammad from his position.
The federation said in a statement, “We are extremely disappointed with the NAACP for excusing Mr. Muhammad’s anti-Semitic posts. Our obligation to oppose hate and discrimination will prevent us from working with the Philadelphia chapter while Mr. Muhammand is employed there.”MORE NEWS: Police Searching For Suspect Accused Of Assaulting Bala Cynwyd 7-Eleven Worker
