Accused Police Car Firebomber Was Intern At Soros-Funded Organization


Brooklyn, NY – One of the attorneys accused of firebombing a New York Police Department (NYPD) patrol vehicle last month was formerly an intern at a radical anti-Israel organization funded by George Soros.

Human rights attorney Urooj Rahman, 31, and Princeton-educated Pryor Cashman LLP associate Colinford King Mattis, 32, have been federally charged with making or possessing a destructive device, civil disorder, use of a destructive device, arson conspiracy, use of explosives to commit a felony, arson, and use of explosives in connection with the May 30 attack, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) said in a press release on Friday.

Rahman, a Fordham University law school graduate, took part in a summer internship at Mada Al-Carmel’s Arab Center for Applied Social Research in 2014, Breitbart News reported.

The radical, Israel-based center is heavily financed by Soros via his Open Society Foundations, according to Breitbart News.

As part of her internship, Rahman spent time working with the Palestine Work organization, where she attended “presentations and workshops led by attorneys and human rights advocates, as well as field visits to human rights flashpoints, such as East Jerusalem, Hebron, the Jordan Valley,” Breitbart News reported.

Rahman subsequently penned an article titled, “Witnessing occupation, apartheid and resistance in Palestine/Israel,” in which she discussed her participation in a 40,000-person anti-Israel demonstration against Israeli troops.

“[Israel Defense Force] soldiers provoke violence using tear gas, stun grenades, rubber-coated steel bullets and, often, live ammunition at civilians exercising their free speech,” she wrote, according to Breitbart News.

“What started out as a peaceful demonstration of resistance to the occupation…turned into an all-out clash,” Rahman continued. “Young Palestinians were forced to resort to throwing rocks, their only form of self-defense, as IDF soldiers fired tear gas and skin-penetrating bullets into a peaceful crowd.”

A year after her internship, Rahman likened her experience with the Israeli troops to the “militarized over-policing” in America, Breitbart News reported.

She accused police of targeting minority communities, and alleged that “institutionalized racism” is paving the way for gentrification.
