Mayor Eric Adams’ new appointee for chair and executive director of the city’s Commission on Racial Equity has been accused of repeatedly sharing anti-Semitic posts.

Linda Tigani, who earned $143,938 as acting chief equity and strategy officer for the city Health Department last year, has repeatedly shared posts on X, formerly Twitter, that include the controversial phrase ‘from the river to the sea’.

The phrase is said to relate to the Palestinian state being from the River Jordan to the Mediterranean Sea and therefore a call for the eradication of the Jewish state. 

‘FROM THE RIVER TO THE SEA! PALESTINE WILL BE FREE!!’ Tigani posted on July 1, 2020 which also included a clip from the ‘Day of Rage’ rally in Brooklyn, where protesters reportedly chanted ‘Death to Israel’ and ‘Death to America’ in Arabic, the New York Post reported. 

In a November 2020 post Tigani shared a video of a Palestinian artist and cook with the caption: ‘Beautiful. From the River to the Sea #PalestineWillBeFree.’

Tigani has also championed Palestinians in the current Middle Eastern conflict on her Facebook page, with her banner image currently featuring the words ‘Free Gaza!!! Ethiopian for Palestine.’

However, she has not commented on her public social media channels in the wake of Hamas deadly terror attacks on Israel in October 7, which left 1,400 people dead. 

City Council Minority Leader Joe Borelli told the Post: ‘So the wokester who is supposed to call out racism has spewed some racist anti-Semitic garbage.’ 

‘”Hypocrite” is probably the only thing I can call her that The Post won’t bleep out’ he added.

It comes as New York City has had to grapple with large scale anti-Israel protests where activists have held up swastikas and burned Stars and Stripes outside City Hall.

Thousands of demonstrators marched from Wall Street and accused Biden of ‘genocide’ for supporting Jewish state on Thursday. 

A reported 3,000 protesters started gathering at Wall Street in NYC’s financial district at 5.30pm, chanting ‘genocide Joe has got to go’ and ‘Eric Adams, you can’t hide, you support genocide’.

Upon reaching Foley Square, some angry Anti-Israel activists set fire to Star of David flags and Stars and Stripes, as they chanted songs in support of Palestine and Gaza.

Someone also left graffiti reading ‘f**k the IDF’ and ‘free Palestine’

Draped in flags, wearing ‘Free Palestine’ shirts and Arab headscarves called Keffiyeh, the protesters chanted ‘We will free Palestine, and Palestine will be free’

Before they escalated the demonstration, the protesters projected messages onto City Hall with phrases like ‘Palestine will never die’ and ‘Gaza, Gaza, you will rise’ earlier that evening.

Draped in flags, wearing ‘Free Palestine’ shirts and Arab headscarves, the protesters chanted ‘We will free Palestine, and Palestine will be free’ as they made their way through the Financial District during what they called the ‘Flood Wall Street for Gaza’ rally Thursday afternoon.

The protesters claimed that U.S. weapons manufacturers bear responsibility for the ‘bombs being dropped on Gaza’ and are profiting from the ongoing ‘genocide of the Palestinian people’.

They made passionate cries during the rally saying ‘Israel bombs and USA pays, how many kids did they kill today’.

The ‘Within Our Lifetime’ organization, led by Palestinians and advocating for the cause since 2015, organized the rally.

One of the flyers singled out several American companies, including Woodward, Raytheon Technologies, and Boeing, which the organizers claim are manufacturing the bombs being dropped in Gaza.

The organization’s social media account only displays protesters praying and chanting in a circle, with some users praising their actions.

The group distributed stickers and sheets at 3pm, started what they called ‘teach-in’ at 4pm, and commenced the rally at 5.30pm.

The protesters moved to different parts of Manhattan and reached Washington Square Park at around 9pm Thursday.

In one of the photos obtained by .com, protesters can be seen climbing onto the scaffolding outside City Hall and hanging Palestinian flags on it.

Tigani and City Hall did not immediately respond to .com’s requests for comment.
