Linda Sarsour is a darling of the American left. She helped organize the Women’s March last January, despite having decidedly un-feminist history that includes praising sharia law, failing to denounce the practice of female genital mutilation, and tweeting that two female anti-Islam activists didn’t “deserve to be women” and should have their vaginas taken away.
A real class act, that one.
Not to mention Sarsour’s rather questionable alliances with CAIR and her friendships with members of Hamas. Then there’s her rallying for a Palestinian woman/terrorist convicted of setting off a bomb in Israel in 1969. The list goes on and on.
Linda Sarsour has now ratcheted up her inflammatory rhetoric by calling for jihad against Donald Trump. She issued this call last week at the 54th annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).
“A word of truth in front of a tyrant ruler or leader, that is the best form of jihad,” she said, quoting the Islamic prophet Muhammad.
“I hope, that when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad, that we are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only abroad in the Middle East or the other side of the world, but here in these United States of America where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reining in the White House,” said Sarsour, who was named a “Champion of Change” by the Obama administration in 2012.
Meanwhile, Rep. Steve Scalise continues a difficult recovery in a DC-area hospital after being shot in act of unquestionable political violence. The kind of political violence – be it knowingly or unwittingly – being advocated for by the likes of Linda Sarsour.
