Linda Sarsour has spent years building up her image as a humanitarian women’s rights activist. She slowly worked her way into the upper echelons of various social justice movements and even helped organize the Women’s March on Washington. She presents herself as an influential voice within the modern feminist movement.

Linda says she loves all people, and claims to be spending her days fighting for freedom and justice. However, as time passes, her true character has been slowly unmasked in a number of articles showing her affiliation with anti-Semites and terrorists, along with her larger goal of delegitimizing and ultimately dismantling the Jewish state.
Unfortunately, her hidden agenda doesn’t stop there. A closer look at a number of her tweets from the past reveals a very concerning pattern of hatred and racism towards Jews, white people, and women.
To start off, Sarsour has specifically singled out Jews for attack.
“Only Jews in my notifications every night are ones that condone violence against Arabs and are cool with mosques being attacked.”

Really Linda, it’s only the evil Jews, right?
She also implied in a tweet that there was something peculiar going on when leaders of US Jewish organizations had a meeting with Trump.
“The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations is co-hosting a Hanukkah party at Donald Trump’s hotel in DC? (thinking face emojis)”
Is Sarsour trying to imply that major Jewish organizations have some sinister agenda or planned collusion with President Trump simply because they met with him? Organizations from all walks of life have meetings with the President of the United States, so why even mention this?
Sarsour has already been established as a hater of Israel — the only democratic nation in the Middle East. She posts anti-Israel videos with distortions and outright lies, and has made outrageous statements about the Jewish state:
“Nothing is creepier than Zionism.Challenge racism, #NormalizeJustice. Check out this video by @remroum”
— Linda Sarsour (@lsarsour) October 31, 2012
Really? Nothing is creepier than a Jewish state to her? Not even Isis or Al Qaeda?
Linda supports the BDS movement and wants to do away with the state of Israel. She hopes to one day force the choice upon the Jews in Israel to either flee their homes or live under Palestinian rule–the so called one state solution. Linda is a Palestinian, and she understands Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah, and the PA well enough to know their stated plans of a Jewish genocide would inevitably result with a one state solution.
Sarsour’s hatred of Israel surfaced when she wrote:
“Regardless of what side your on, no justification to support any air strike attacks on #Syria from #Israel. Absolutely none. Disgusting.”
— Linda Sarsour (@lsarsour) May 5, 2013
So if Israel is attacked, it has no right to defend itself? Or if there is an opportunity to strike Isis, even then there is no justification? I would think saving Arab lives from Isis would be more important than politics.
Linda has also peddled in conspiracy innuendo aimed at the U.S. government.
“Underwear bomber was the #CIA all along. Why did I already know that?! Shame on us – scaring the American people.”

How would she have already known that? It seems she’s convinced that most terrorist attacks are really just the U.S. government trying to make Islam look bad.
However Sarsour has also engaged in bigotry and hostility towards white people as a race on numerous occasions:
“How many times do we have to tell White women that we do not need to be saved by them? Is there code language I need to use to get thru?”

“Did you know a white ally helped #BreeNewsome today? It’s not about white people. We are against white supremacy.”

“White folks forgot when pilgrims came here fleeing political persecution. Freedom to worship cool for them, not others. #HateUnchecked”

— Linda Sarsour (@lsarsour) October 9, 2015
She’s also assured her Twitter followers that her statements about race “doesn’t mean I hate white people.” Linda, if you have to actually state that you don’t hate a certain race, you’ve usually already crossed over into very racist territory.
However, at the same time, Linda tweets her belief that she is literally incapable of racism because she is a Palestinian in the United States.
“There’s no such thing as reverse racism. Racism is bigotry + power. The group that doesn’t have power can’t be racist.”

So in other words, if you aren’t a white person in the Western world, you are incapable of racism. And if you are a white person, it’s impossible for you to ever experience it. That right there, is an extremely dangerous idea for anybody to hold, let alone a high profile figure such as Sarsour.
We also see Linda’s threats of violence towards women with whom she disagrees.
“@yazham Girl do I wanna take down Brigitte Gabriel?! She said she walks into stores in Arlington, let her try walking streets of Bay Ridge!”

Threatening to harm another woman if she sees them on the street? Truly despicable.
Linda has tried very hard to embed herself in the feminist movement’s leadership, yet desperately tries to conceal the violence that women in Islamic dictatorships experience. For example, at least 150 million Muslim girls have had to undergo female genital mutilation (27.2 million in Egypt alone). When she tried to provide cover for this fact, another Twitter user posted a screen shot of a now deleted tweet from Sarsour.
“FGM has no place in Detroit or any where else in the world. FGM is barbaric & is NOT an Islamic practice.”
— SKY44 (@SKYRIDER4438) April 21, 2017
Yes, that’s correct. Linda threatened Brigitte Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali with an “ass whippin.” Linda also wishes she could “take their vaginas away.” And even more heinous is that Linda was writing this about Hirsi Ali, a woman who was forced to undergo female genital mutilation herself.
Sarsour however doesn’t seem to have a problem with actual terrorists. On April 2 she appeared on stage with known terrorist Rasmea Odeh, a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine who took part in a bombing attack that killed two Jewish students and wounded nine others. .
At that event Sarsour said, “honored and privileged to be here in this space, and honored to be on this stage with Rasmea.” Rasmea will soon be deported from the U.S. for lying about her past terrorist activities.
When you think it couldn’t get any worse, it has also been revealed that Sarsour is closely affiliated with Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam and thinks very highly of them. The Anti-Defamation League has condemned the Nation of Islam as maintaining “a consistent record of anti-Semitism and racism since its founding in the 1930s.” The ADL describes Farrakhan as “the leading anti-Semite in America.”
The amount of venomous hate this group has directed towards Jews is extremely disturbing. Farrakhan claims the Jews orchestrated 9/11 and recently said, “the Satanic Jews that control everything and mostly everybody, if they are your enemy, then you must be somebody.” He also regularly attacks white people and has said outrightly, “White people deserve to die.” Yet Sarsour praises the Nation of Islam, and warmly references them in numerous tweets.

“Can’t learn or teach about the history of Islam in America without talking about the Nation of Islam (NOI). #MYLS2014”

“Sunni, Shia, Sufi, Nation of Islam – we are #Muslim, we are all part of one ummah, one family. #Islam”
— Linda Sarsour (@lsarsour) April 28, 2012
In 2015 Linda gave a speech to a crowd at a Nation of Islam event with Farrakhan, in which she viciously attacked Israel. Furthermore, when Linda’s close friend posted a photo on Instagram of Farrakhan in November of 2016 Linda commented on the photo “the brother does not age. God bless him.”
Anyone who praises and chooses to be associated so closely with one of the most racist, anti-Semitic hate preachers in this country is a real danger to the Jewish people and to society at large.
Linda has spent years crafting the image of a humanitarian feminist, allowing her to infiltrate and influence society’s public discourse in an extremely damaging way. Until her hatred is fully unmasked for all to see, she will continue to inject her racist, anti-Semitic, anti-woman, radical agenda into the world that we inhabit.
