Linda Sarsour is a Palestinian-American, anti-Israel activist who recently spoke encouraging enough violence to even panic the left. Her speech in Chicago to the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is the largest umbrella organization of Muslims in North America deserves attention and not for any good reason.
She famously called for Jihad during the Women’s March the day after Trump’s inauguration and now in her latest speech, she went so far as to cause the New York Democratic Assemblyman Dov Hikind to issue a statement that her words ought to be taken “very seriously” and that: “Words matter. Attacks on the police, like the one New York suffered yesterday, are precipitated by violent slogans. Sarsour is very dangerous.”
While she says that:
A word of truth in front of a tyrant ruler or leader, that is the best form of jihad.
But she goes on to say:
And I hope that we, when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts us from us that as a form of jihad, that we are struggling against tyrants and rulers, not only abroad in the Middle East or on the other side of the world, but here, in these United States of America, where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House.
As reported in Breitbart:
In her speech, Sarsour also spoke about the importance of Muslims supporting other “oppressed” groups in the U.S. in their struggles — and talked about her experience representing Palestinians in those movements. “I don’t have to choose do I not be too Palestinian this day … I have been a living example of what it means to be whole-heartedly all of me, in whatever space that I am in,” she said.
She added: “I will not be in a space where any group or any organization or any individual tells me that there’s a part of my identity that is not welcomed,” a privilege not accorded to liberal Jews or Zionists who march for the “oppressed,” as excluded Jewish lesbians recently found out (also in Chicago).
If you have the time to get riled up over Islamic extremism, you can watch the 22-minute video here. If you only have a little time to get a lot angry, watch from 6:56-7:44.
