Linda Sarsour is sar-sour on CNN’s Jake Tapper. She’s called on the Collusion News Network to take action against him due to his “retweeting blatant lies” about Quad Squad congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
As you may be aware, the group Miftah had planned to sponsor Ilhan and Rashida’s now-canceled trip to “Palestine.”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pointed to Miftah’s terror ties Thursday as part of the reason the freshman duo was banned from Israel:
In addition, the organization that is funding their trip is Miftah, which is an avid supporter of BDS, and among whose members are those who have expressed support for terrorism against Israel.

National Review’s David French penned an exposé on Mitfah and the trip, and that article got retweeted by Jake, which set Linda off. Here’s some of what she wrote:
“I am sick of Jake Tapper’s sh** and the silence of liberals on his clear bigotry against Palestinians. He’s not on our team.
He’s retweeting blatant LIES AGAIN. He often amplifies conservative, right wing Zionist, staunch pro-Israel propaganda.
“Miftah, the organization in question has sponsored trips to Palestine for members of Congress in the past and Jake Tapper didn’t think much of it.
“Rashida and Ilhan are a thorn in his side because they expose that he’s no champion of “the resistance”. Just because he critiques Trump every once in a while doesn’t give him a pass for the rest of the nonsense he spews.”
She also contrasted CNN’s treatment of Jake with that of pundit Marc Lamont Hill, who was fired over his comments before the United Nations.
The David French piece which Jake shared on social media compared reviewing Miftah’s website to “peeling an onion of evil” comprised by “layer upon layer of vile anti-Semitism.”
Here's a part of the Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib Israel story that you've likely not read.
They planned the trip with a vile, vicious anti-Semitic group that spread blood libel, printed neo-nazi propaganda, and celebrates terrorists who kill children: https://t.co/BHGlVg17hW

Marc Lamont Hill, you may remember, appeared to tout the destruction of the nation of Israel in front of the whole world:

Which is worse?
Linda knows. Therefore, she needs your help: The activist plans to deliver a petition to CNN on August 22nd to “hold Tapper accountable.”
‘Cause he’s a bad man.
Jake may have participated in a retweet, but at least he didn’t do everything wrong — he could’ve committed the egregious sin Linda spoke out against last September: humanizing Jews.
