I am neither shocked or surprised by Linda Sarsour’s Jew-hatred. Nor am I shocked or surprised by the Muslim Brotherhood’s endorsement of her lies. Evil exists in the world, and Islamic Jew-hatred is in the Quran. What is horrific is the left’s exaltation of Sarsour. She was a leader of the Women’s March after President Trump was inaugurated — a woman wearing the hijab, which girls have been beaten and killed for not wearing, stood as a feminist leader. She was chosen by CUNY to give the keynote speech at the university’s commencement ceremonies, and CUNY stuck to its guns despite the massive protest I led against their choice in Manhattan, and many other calls for them not to honor this savage. Linda Sarsour has called for jihad against President Trump.
And it’s not just the political and academic left, but left-wing kapo Jews who stand with Sarsour.
Evil is made possible the the sanction you give it.
Sarsour’s rhetoric is evocative of German propaganda in the run-up to the Holocaust. Goebbels pounded the victim narrative and the Jews the oppressors. Same incitement, next century.
“Senior MB Official Touts Linda Sarsour’s Gaza Video,” by John Rossomando, Investigative Project, July 31, 2018:
When Linda Sarsour speaks, a senior Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood official apparently likes what he hears.
Gamal Heshmat shared an anti-Israel video by Sarsour on his Facebook page last Friday. In it, Sarsour glosses over Hamas’ role coordinating the “Great March of Return” in May.
She fails to inform viewers that the protesters used kite bombs, incendiary balloons and rockets to try to attack Israeli civilian areas. She does speak about the death toll, however, noting that 50 Gazans died on May 14.
Subsequently, Hamas leaders took full credit for the violence, boasting that the overwhelming majority of casualties were members of the terrorist group. Subsequent Israeli analysis confirmed the Hamas claim.
“This is not peaceful resistance,” Hamas Politburo member Mahmoud al-Zahhar told Al-Jazeera on May 13. “Has the option (of armed struggle) diminished? No. On the contrary, it is growing and developing. That’s clear. So when we talk about ‘peaceful resistance,’ we are deceiving the public.”
Heshmat belongs to the Brotherhood’s Shura Council, the legislative body that sets the group’s agenda. It isn’t clear what prompted him to post the two-month old video Friday, but tried to pretend the prominent Hamas role instigating the violence somehow was a secret.
“The crimes of the Zionist Entity are increasing in light of international protection which betrays its principles, and an Arabic guardianship which thwarts its Umma, and an Islamic silence which harms the Religion and forsakes the Truth, we will expose it to everyone to publish and distribute,” Heshmat wrote in the post.
Having a senior Brotherhood official tout her video is a bad look for Sarsour, said Zuhdi Jasser, founder and president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD).
“It’s no longer credible to say that it’s guilt by association when a major thought leader in the Muslim Brotherhood is using her material to establish a political agenda,” Jasser said.
Sarsour’s video calls for a Palestinian right to “return to their original homelands” – a demand which would effectively eliminate Israel as a Jewish state. She also called a “prison” due to a blockade aimed at preventing Hamas from smuggling weapons into the area for future terrorist attacks.
Top Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh cited the same talking points in a June 7 column posted on Hamas’ website. Hamas wants Israel’s destruction, nothing less.
