Linda Sarsour Defends Her Call to Jihad, Blames ‘Xenophobes’ and Conservative Media For Defamation Campaign

As TGP previously reported, far Left Darling Linda Sarsour told Muslims to fight the Trump administration with jihad in the United States.

Fight Trump with Jihad! Wow!

Unsurprisingly, Linda Sarsour is now playing the victim in a new op-ed she wrote in the Washington Post blaming xenophobes and conservative media for a defamation campaign against her.

Sarsour doubled down on her Islamic deception in her op-ed in the Washington Post conveniently leaving out that she told Muslims not to assimilate here in the U.S. Sarsour clearly called for Jihad and now that she is getting exposed for yet another seditious speech, she’s trying to walk it back:

In my speech — you can watch the unedited version here — I sent not a call to violence, but a call to speak truth to power and to commit to the struggle for racial and economic justice. I was speaking to an all-Muslim audience; as an American, I should be free to share and discuss scripture and teachings of my beloved Prophet. My statements were clear, and my activism track record is even clearer: My work has always been rooted in nonviolence as espoused by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Most disturbing about this recent defamation campaign is how it is focused on demonizing the legitimate yet widely misunderstood Islamic term I used, “jihad,” which to majority of Muslims and according to religious scholars means “struggle” or “to strive for.” This term has been hijacked by Muslim extremists and right-wing extremists alike, leaving ordinary Muslims to defend our faith and in some cases silenced. It sets a dangerous precedent when people of faith are policed and when practicing their religion peacefully comes with consequences.

Nevertheless, the attacks from xenophobes and the conservative media have continued. It saddens me deeply that my three children are frightened. It angers me that I have to think about securing my physical safety even while walking through the neighborhoods of Brooklyn.

Sarsour claims she’s in danger? It’s American blood that has spilled at the hands of Islamic terrorists. Thousands of Americans have been killed in the name of Islam on American soil since 9/11.

FYI, the beloved ‘prophet’, Muhammad Sarsour speaks of married (raped) a 6-year-old little girl, Aisha, kept female sex slaves and beheaded hundreds of Jews (including young boys). This is the person who Muslims revere as the perfect man. Let that sink in.

Sarsour also bragged about her activism track record always being rooted in nonviolence. Her connections to the terrorist organization, Hamas is evidence to the contrary.

Linda Sarsour is very vocal about her support for Palestine and her utter hatred for Israel. She has ties to the terrorist organization, Hamas as the Daily Caller reports:

Linda Sarsour, one of the organizers behind Saturday’s Women’s March, being held in Washington, D.C., was recently spotted at a large Muslim convention in Chicago posing for pictures with an accused financier for Hamas, the terrorist group.

Sarsour, the head of the Arab American Association of New York and an Obama White House “Champion of Change,” was speaking at last month’s 15th annual convention of the Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America.

While there, she posed for a picture with Salah Sarsour, a member of the Islamic Society of Milwaukee and former Hamas operative who was jailed in Israel in the 1990s because of his alleged work for the terrorist group.

Sarsour also acts like she’s for women’s rights, yet she viciously attacked the victim of Islamic female genital mutilation Ayaan Hirsi Ali and anti-Islam activist Brigitte Gabriel who was almost killed by Islamic terrorists for being a Christian while living in Lebanon.

She deleted the tweet in a panic, however; we have the archived link proving that it is indeed real. Click here to see archive. Look how nonviolent Sarsour is in this tweet as she threatens to beat up another woman:

In case you missed it, here is Sarsour’s speech where she clearly calls on Muslims to fight the Trump administration with Jihad and tells them NOT to assimilate:

“They are relentless, they are persistent and consistent and want to see how much as a community we can endure and wanna see who our friends are and how hard we are going to fight back against this administration.”

“And I hope that when we stand up to those who oppress our communities,” Sarsour continued, “that Allah accepts from us that is a form of Jihad! That we are struggling against tyrants and rulers–not only abroad in the Middle East…but here in the Unites States of America where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House.”
