Sarsour: ‘White Jews’ Who Label Omar An ‘Antisemite’ Base Their Criticism In ‘A Stereotype’

41

“White Jew” — is that Islamic slang for “kike” or khanzeer? Sarsour actually had the audacity to say: that Omar “didn’t know [anything] in Somalia about no anti-Semitism.” Really? A Muslim country that doesn’t know about antisemitism — that would be like growing up in America and not knowing anything about Mickey Mouse. Antisemitism is in the air Somalis breathe and the water they drink. Sarsour is relying on Americans’ ignorance.

“Sarsour: ‘White Jews’ Who Label Omar An ‘Antisemite’ Base Their Criticism In ‘A Stereotype,’” by Mike Brest, Daily Caller, April 5, 2019 (thanks to Wendy):

Progressive activist and Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour accused “white Jews” who are critical of Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar of basing their criticism in stereotypes while speaking at an event earlier this week.

“A black Muslim woman congresswoman, her ancestors wildest dreams that in America, a refugee from Somalia could make it into an office like Congress. Right? Someone who English was not her first language. She came here at the age of 14. Right? She didn’t know [anything] in Somalia about no anti-Semitism,” Sarsour stated, referencing Omar.

She continued:

This is something she’s learning along the way now that she’s a legislator. But what has happened often times when white Jews who continue to call her [an] antisemite is that they look at Muslim women from an orientalist trope that we are inherently anti-Semitic because we’re Muslims. Right? It’s a stereotype that has been used often against Muslim communities, that we are anti-Semitic until proven otherwise. That we are guilty until proven innocent. It’s not okay.

StandWithUs, an international nonprofit Israel education organization, tweeted the video from NC Coalition for Israel, adding “You have to see it to believe it. , activist & Co-Founder whitewashes the antisemitisms from , claiming that Omar ‘didn’t know about ‘ & blames the ‘white ‘ for saying she’s antisemitic. Is anyone even surprised?”

Roz Rothstein, co-founder and CEO of StandWithUs, told The Daily Caller, “It is unfortunate but unsurprising to see this latest attempt to whitewash anti-Semitism. Linda tries to turn the tables around and attack those who would dare complain about Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic comments. This is a basic moral issue — all leaders, including Representative Omar, must be held accountable if they engage in hateful rhetoric against any community.”…
