Linda Sarsour is trying to portray Omar as an innocent victim of the “Islamophobia” that she claims caused the massacre in New Zealand.
“Liberal Muslim activist Linda Sarsour tweeted that she is ‘triggered’ by a ‘hate mob’ against Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar that is ‘now giving condolences’ to the Muslim community in the wake of the Christchurch, New Zealand shootings.”
Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic comments should be condemned to the fullest, as should the violent massacre in Christchurch New Zealand. Both are heinous. They are separate from each other. Linda Sarsour, however, tries to put them together to claim victimhood once again. She’s trying to portray Omar as an innocent victim of the “Islamophobia” that she claims caused the massacre in New Zealand. Aside from “Islamophobia” being a propaganda term, Omar is an Islamic supremacist who is articulating open anti-Semitism from the House of Representatives. This needs to be called out.
Linda Sarsour is no one to claim the moral high ground. Last year she initiated a fundraiser, supposedly to raise money for the Tree of Life Synagogue after the massacre there in November 2018. As it turns out, the synagogue only received 2.5% of the $400,000 raised. Some of it went to Muslim-Jewish dialogue ventures; some went to an Islamic Center with jihadist ties. The money was largely unaccounted for. No justice was served in what appeared to be a grand scheme.
“Linda Sarsour ‘Triggered’ By ‘Hate Mob’ Against Omar ‘Giving Condolences’ To Muslim Community After Shooting,” by Scott Morefield, Daily Caller, March 16, 2019:
Liberal Muslim activist Linda Sarsour tweeted that she is “triggered” by a “hate mob” against Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar that is “now giving condolences” to the Muslim community in the wake of the Christchurch, New Zealand shootings.
“I am triggered by those who piled on Representative Ilhan Omar and incited a hate mob against her until she got assassination threats now giving condolences to our community,” Sarsour tweeted Saturday morning. “What we need you to do is reflect on how you contribute to islamophobia and stop doing that.”
Sarsour’s tweet comes a day after Chelsea Clinton, attending a vigil at New York University to honor the 49 Muslim victims of Friday’s mass shooting, was publicly scolded for condemning the Minnesota congresswoman for a series of anti-Semitic tweets and comments, comments which Sarsour herself has defended…..
