Palestinian-American activist, Linda Sarsour, has called out Donald Trump and said that she is “outraged” that he is the White House, and calls upon followers to wage a form of “peaceful Jihad” against him.
She expressly quotes from the Koran saying: “A word of truth in front of a tyrant ruler or leader, that is the best form of jihad,” which many in the MSM may call a peaceful form of protest, but Islamic scholars of the Hadiths say that this is to be done “to the face”, not in public spaces. They also say that if they are martyred whilst doing this, then it is the “best form of martyrdom”.
Sarsour has many known connections to terrorism and terrorist organisations. It doesn’t matter what we think of her words or how we interpret them, it is how followers of Islam interpret her words that matter. Did she call for peaceful protest, or was it something else?
Reports the Daily Caller:
At the beginning of her speech, Sarsour thanked Siraj Wahaaj, a Brooklyn-based cleric who was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the first World Trade Center bombing.
ISNA, the group hosting Sarsour, was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror financing case. The Holy Land Foundation helped funnel money to the terror group Hamas.
Sarsour recently met a former Hamas operative named Salah Sarsour. It is unclear if the two are related, though The Daily Caller reported in January that the pair posed for a photograph on the sidelines of a convention held in Chicago in December.
She has also rallied on behalf of Rasmea Odeh, a Palestinian woman who was convicted of killing two Israelis in a 1969 bomb attack.
