Linda Sarsour

Linda Sarsour is a racist[1][2][3] Arab[3]-Muslim American political "activist," who has stumped for Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign, marched with the Black Lives Matter movement and co-founded the Women's March.[4] Sarsour is a vocal surrogate for Bernie Sanders' 2020 presidential campaign.

Personal life

Sarsour was born in Brooklyn, New York and is the daughter of "Palestinian" immigrants.[5] At 17, she entered an arranged marriage.[5]

Islamic feminist (oxymoron)

Linda Sarsour (left in hijab) with Elizabeth Warren (right in light blue) at the Kavanaugh hearings insurrection.

Sarsour is an adherent of Islam yet claims to be a "feminist."[6] She is very proud of wearing the hijab[7] and she propogates that "oppression of women is absolutely shunned in the Islamic faith", despite well-documented evidence to the contrary.[8] Due to Sarsour embracing Islam while claiming to be a feminist, she has been criticized by other feminists. Ayaan Hirsi Ali called Sarsour a "fake feminist".[9] Sarsour replied in a now-deleted tweet that Ayaan Hirsi Ali does not deserve to be woman and that she wish she could take her vagina away.[10][11][12] A tweeter replied[10] to Sarsour "You say this about a victim of Islamic sanctioned female genital mutilation. You're a terrible human being." Together with Tamika Mallory, Bob Bland, and Carmen Perez, Sarsour was an organizer of the 2017 Women's March, a march of progressive groups protesting President Donald Trump's election.[13]

Accusations of anti-Semitism

Due to her ties with Louis Farrakhan, and other activities[2] Sarsour has been accused of anti-Semitism. She has also dehumanized Jews; tweeted wishes to a cop killler; [14] supports a jihadi terrorist[15] and promotes tropes about Jews.[16][17]

In 2019 she blasted Nancy Pelosi for anti-Semitism resolution as a typical white feminist.[18]

Two directors of the U.S.-based Jewish NGO the Anti-Defamation League, along with the president of the Zionist Organization of America, have criticized Sarsour's stance on Israel. Jonathan Greenblatt, the ADL's director, has said that Sarsour's support of BDS "encourages and spreads anti-Semitism".[19] Sarsour has associated with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and refused to condemn his extremely anti-Semitic rhetoric.[20] Sarsour spoke at a 2015 rally organized by Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam;[20][21] she has also promoted Farrakhan's Nation of Islam organization as "an integral part" of "the history of Islam in America."[22]

At the tragedy of May-24-2021, collapse of Champain Towers, 'Surfside condominium building collapse,' upon hearing that a significant number of victims were Jews, some haters jumped on the wagon. Racist Linda Sarsour masked her cruel venom by "pro-Palestinianism" upon seeing IDF (because of its experience in rescuing Israelis from terror attacks) assisting in search and rescue.[23]

BDS

Sarsour is a hard promoter of BDS. Linked also with another Arab bigot, BDS-er Omar Shakir.[24]

In 2018 Ben & Jerry's radical activist Anuradha Mittal linked with Sarsour[25] and after May-2021 Guardian of Walls being pressured by anti-Israel tweeters (led by such popular Arab-Palestinian anti-Semitic tweeter who dehumanized Israelis as non-humans[26]), in July 2021 the company annouced they will stop selling in "territories" after revealing they were about to stop all sales to all of Israel. [27][28][29][30] While in fact, Ben & Jerry’s bid to punish the so-called “occupier” nation of Israel will hurt the very people the company claimed it wanted to help: the Arab-Palestinians. Costing their jobs.[31]

The company's Anuradha Mittal has been publishing columns defending Hezbollah and supporting U.S. funding to Hamas.[25]


In response:[32]
Susannah Levin, an Albany, NY graphic designer whose company served Ben & Jerry sine 2000, posted on her Facebook page this week: “Effective immediately, I have quit my job of 21 years at Ben & Jerry’s, over the statement on Israel. If you want to get an idea of why, please watch this wonderful video by the great Rabbi Jonathon Sacks, z”l. He explains how anti-Zionism IS the new anti-Semitism. My company’s response is part of this despicable trend and I will have no part of it.”

Responding, Florida, Texas [33]and NJ[34] threatened Ben & Jerry's with anti-BDS.

Exposed

In a 'Car-crash interview' on Oct 2021, Ben & Jerry’s co-founders stumped on why ice cream brand singles out Israel, continues to serve red states.[35] It exposed the blind anti-Israrlism form of bigotry.

Capitol insurrectionist

Joyce Beatty and Linda Sarsour.

In 2017 Sarsour declared jihad against the United States government.[36] In 2018 Sarsour was arrested for leading insurrectionists into the offices of the Speaker of the House[37] and again at the Kavanaugh hearings insurrection.[38] In 2021, Sarsour and Congressional Black Caucus members Joyce Beatty and Hank Johnson were arrested with mobs of insurrectionists after storming U.S. Capitol building.[39]

Views of race and racism

Sarsour, who herself has been accused of anti-black racism,[3] rejects the standard definition of racism and believes that "Racism is bigotry + power. The group that doesn't have power can't be racist."[40] She also thinks that the race of a person depends somehow on their privileges, since she stated: "I am not White. If I had the privilege of a white person, maybe. But I don't."[41] although later she identified as a white girl,[42] and subsequently as a person of color.[43] Then, in a panel she claims that "At the end of the day it's self-identification. I'm Palestinian, if I want to say 'I'm Black,' - I'm Black!"[44]

    This is a woman who said that Ayaan Hirsi Ali — who was a victim of FGM, escaped brutal conditions, and now must travel with bodyguards 24/7 — deserves to have her vagina taken away because Sarsour doesn’t agree with her worldview.

    She also paid tribute recently to Imam Siraj Wahaj, a man who was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and said homosexuality is a disease.

    Sarsour praised Assata Shakur, a convicted cop killer who escaped prison and fled to Cuba, where she has been hiding out for almost 40 years.

    She has said so many disgusting things about Israel, that I wouldn’t even know where to begin, but I’d say her calling for a one-state solution that would completely wipe Israel off the map might be a decent starting point.

    And, of course, there’s her most recent high-profile lunacy, which was calling for “Jihad” against President Trump and the American government.

    Her later claims about this — that she would never advocate violence and was instead referring to the literal definition of a struggle as opposed to the widely accepted definition of violent overthrow — are so ridiculously disingenuous, that I’d laugh if it wasn’t so pathetic.

    Remember, she’s incredibly peaceful, except when she’s lauding the actions of a convicted cop-killer, an accomplice in a bombing, or cheering on Palestinians throwing rocks at Israelis as a profile in courage on Twitter.

    Essentially, Sarsour’s nonsensical claim about what she “really” meant when she said “Jihad” has just as much credibility as the president of an organization who hates gay people trying to claim that he was talking about a pile of sticks when he yelled out the word “fagot.”

    Let’s be clear here: Linda Sarsour was calling for violence against President Trump and the United States government, and if you believe otherwise, I’ll introduce you to the toothfairy.

Omar Shakir also attempted to attend a 2017 FIFA board meeting in Bahrain as part of an HRW effort to sanction Israeli football, despite claims made by his attorney that he had no involvement in this HRW campaign..

    (Ben and Jerry's board chairwoman Anuradha Mittal / oaklandinstitute.org)

    Ben & Jerry's board chairwoman isn't your average corporate suit. A social justice warrior who's now under increased scrutiny in the wake of the company's announcement that it will boycott Israel's West Bank and East Jerusalem, she has a lengthy history of left-wing activism that includes publishing columns defending Hezbollah and supporting U.S. funding to Hamas.

    Anuradha Mittal, the leading force behind the ice cream company's decision to stop selling its products in parts of Israel, founded the Oakland Institute, which describes itself as an "independent policy think tank," in 2004 and serves as its executive director. The group has published articles defending Hezbollah and Hamas, terrorist groups that seek the destruction of the Jewish state....

    Ben & Jerry's is under increased scrutiny for its decision to join the anti-Israel boycott movement, which follows criticism over the ice cream maker's partnership with anti-Semitic figures during the Women's March in 2018. At the time, the company defended its work with Linda Sarsour, one of the march leaders who was ousted for anti-Semitism...

Ben & Jerry’s wanted to boycott all of Israel Soon after the announcement that it was boycotting the “Occupied Palestinian Territories”, Anuradha Mittal, a member of its Board of Directors, flipped out on Twitter. The board wanted to boycott Israel in its entirety, but Unilever refused to countenance such a move. “It is stunning that they (Unilever) can say that…” Mittal fumed. Mittal also serves as the Executive Director of the Oakland Institute, a California-based organization that has published reports calling all of present-day Israel, including within its pre-1967 borders, “occupied Palestine”. According to Ms. Mittal, it seems that none of Israel has a right to exist. The board wanted to boycott Israel in its entirety. According to one member, none of Israel has a right to exist.
