Linda Sarsour is a Beautiful Person

Michael Lumish

I find Linda Sarsour fascinating.

I earnestly want her to go away, but at the same time I respect the woman's abilities.

Whatever her finest intentions she is the first progressive-left American activist to introduce Sharia to the general American public in an apple pie kind of way and at the same time she is standing up for the Jewish community in St. Louis, Missouri.
A Palestinian-American activist who has voiced support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise money to help repair a St. Louis-area Jewish cemetery where at least 170 gravestones were toppled over the weekend.
I am impressed by her tenacity, political timing, understanding of her audience, and the brass-balls audacity it takes to sell Sharia as a complement to western feminism, while endeavoring to court semi-Zionist American Jews.

No wonder that she comes out of Brooklyn, my old man's town.

Speaking strictly for myself, I have no reason to doubt her absolute sincerity. The reason for this is because I am well-aware of the ability of intelligent and decent people to promote the worst ideas while doing so for the very best reasons.

In her latest Facebook post we read this:

sarsour1

This is instructive material.

It is a good example of how Sarsour plays to the counter-cultural wing of the progressive left with an emphasis on blurry spirituality and generalized niceness... in contrast to the anarcho-syndicalist wing that we saw beating up innocent people just off Sproul Plaza at UC Berkeley.

She writes:
Feeling blessed. Feeling grateful for so many people, places and things. God is truly the greatest.
Sounds like a beautiful statement to me and I would very much like for myself and for the Jewish people to be included in it.

Sadly, it is impossible to see it that way.

When she says that "God is truly the greatest" it is a less-than-clever way of slipping "Alahu Akbar" into the American vernacular.

"Alahu Akbar" means "God is Great" or "God is the Greatest" or "Our God is Better than Your God" depending upon just who you speak with.

What it means to semi-conscious non-Muslims, however, particularly those of the Jewish persuasion, is that we are going to kill you dead, you insidious children of swine and orangutans. Every murderous jihadi that has existed since Muhammad screeched those same exact words before blowing perfectly innocent people to smithereens.

If this sounds paranoid to the ears of comfortable and isolated Americans, it is because they have no recognition of 1,300 years of second and third-class non-citizenship under the boot of Arab-Muslim imperial rule.

The obvious way to approach Sarsour, however - or anyone else who hopes to introduce Islamic Supremacism into progressive-left ideology - is to simply request that they justify the contradiction.

Sarsour, as a proponent of Sharia, should explain how Islamic jurisprudence is compatible with western feminism.

She also needs to describe how Jewish self-determination and self-defense in the Jewish national homeland is somehow incompatible with the ideals of the Democratic Party.

Nonetheless, her fundraising efforts for the vandalized Jewish cemetery near St. Louis should be applauded.

I like this woman because she seems to have tenacity and conviction.

She deserves an honest shot in justifying the obvious contradictions in her political stances.

  1. And then she goes and spoils it all by raising money to fix Jewish cemeteries.

    1. She may actually be sincere. People are funny that way.

    2. Her 'help' must be 100% rejected on all fronts. No Peace, No Recognition of 'palestine', No Negotiations. The only approach is The Iron Wall.

    4. There should be conditions on accepting any money, that she renounce her bogotry and anti-Israelism, such as support for the terrorist Rasmea Odeh.

    5. Raising money for a Jewish cemetery is crafty way of separating Jews from Israel, and making her look benevolent in the process. Linda Sarsour is a snake,and I would reject her money and her "help" outright.

  2. She exceeded the hoped for amount. Perhaps she can use to rest to start up a new graveyard for all the Israeli Jews her friends hope to kill in the near future. Such a thoughtful girl.

    1. I think that we should befriend her.

      We need to discuss with her, and those like her, how they square the circle of western feminism with Sharia.

      Delete
    2. They don't care about western feminism except as a vehicle for Sharia.
      She got good publicity and a lot of people that want to believe have dropped their guard.

  3. Wolf in sheep's clothing.

    This seems done to inoculate against the recent hits that brought up negative, but accurate facts about her intentions.

    It will take more than that to convince she has left her bigotry behind.

  4. Don't be ridiculous.

    You're being played for schmucks. Don't trust her as far as you can throw her.

    1. Who said anything about trusting her? The point is to force her to either expose herself as a hypocrite or reconcile western feminism with Sharia. Let her also explain to us how supporting Israel is not in keeping with Democratic Party values. In other words, let's see just how coherent she actually is on the issues. Simply shaking our little fists at her doesn't do shit, Geoff. What we need is someone Sam Harris to invite her to debate. Or Dersh. Or Isi, for that matter.

    2. I'd like to see her debate Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

    3. Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

      She is a perfect choice.

      Maybe Brigitte Gabriel.

  6. She deserves NOTHING. What is going on with people? Third Zionist I've heard say this in five minutes. Do you respect JVP too? Need to know. Cause she's gonna be the keynote speaker. You don't see the snake?

  7. Sarsour on MSNBC today as champion against antisemitism of Trump and his people. Andrea Mitchell, of course, was silent as to Sarsour's past hatred.

    Sarsour = Taqiya.

    1. There is an opinion that Zionism is a form of antisemitism, because it distracts Jews from the real liberation struggle (against Capitalism and Imperialism). It was an official position of Soviet Union and Communist Parties world wide. I believe she is sincerely against this kind of antisemitism.

      Delete
    2. No, Linda Sarsour is not sincerely against this kind of "antisemitism". She couldn't care less about Jews or their liberation struggle. Linda Sarsour is merely grabbing onto whatever she can in order to advance her agenda - the imposition of the supremacy of Islam and Sharia on America. Not a shred of honesty or decency in that woman. She is an agent of evil.

      Delete
    3. Sarsour is playing a duplicitous game of good Jews (dead) and bad Jews (living Israelis and their supporters). Although I didn't see it, I'm pretty sure that Andrea Mitchell didn't challenge her much if at all.
      Am I right, oldschooltwentysix?

    5. O.K. So she went on MSNBC and spoke in MSNBC-ese. Andrea Mitchell looks to her for "the answers." "Islamic Jew hate" will never pass through her lips. But she does manage to smear Bannon as an antisemite. In MSNBC Land this is considered a successful appearance.

  8. Let's see.

    Who should Linda Sarsour sit down with in order to discuss Sharia, western feminism, and the influence of anti-Zionism within the Democratic Party?

    Here is my list, so far.

    Sam Harris

    Bill Maher

    Ryan Bellerose

    Ayaan Hirsi Ali

    Brigitte Gabriel

    Dave Rubin

    Maajid Nawaz

    Alan Dershowitz

    I do not know the ins-and-outs of each of their political biographies, but none of these people are particularly "right-wing"... at least not by my stars.

    If you really wanted to go after her on theory you could probably get Robert Spencer or David Wood to slice and dice her arguments.

    But we don't particularly want partisanship, I do not think.

    So help me compile a list and then I'll put it out on FB.

    Who knows?

    Maybe something will happen.

    I wouldn't count on it, but sometimes the stars align.

    1. How about Roseanne Barr?

      That ought to be worth the price of admission!

    2. Douglas Murray and Mark Steyn must be on this list. Also Ben Shapiro -- if Sarsour has the guts.

    3. Douglas Murray and Mark Steyn?

      Jesus Christ, wouldn't that be something.

      She wouldn't stand a chance and she'd never agree.

      Nonetheless, if they're willing so am I.

      On the list they go.

  10. "Sarsour’s fundraising for the Jewish community seems to be a PR stunt straight from her own playbook. And not just for Muslims in general, but also Sarsour personally, who has been reeling from the exposure of her misdeeds, and is engaging in damage control as she prepares herself for what looks like a political career."

    1. She is “a critic of the State of Israel. I always will be. I have come out in full support of BDS.”
      Really? Always? That tells me what I need to know.

      And,
      “Through this campaign, we hope to send a united message from the Jewish and Muslim communities that there is no place for this type of hate, desecration, and violence in America,”
      but a different story in Israel. How does she feel about the Jordanian (and repeated Palestinian) desecration of the Mount of Olives cemetery, or the idea that this ancient Jewish cemetery is being illegally occupied?

      Delete
  11. She's wants upgraded and maintained Jewish cemeteries because she's planning to put us all in them.

    1. She is a political adversary standing at the crux between the left-liberal rubbing ideological plates of universal human rights and the multicultural ideal. She personifies their contradictions. That's why she is interesting.

    2. That's a very keen insight. You never take your eye off the ball. Are you sure you don't do this for living? :0)

    3. Y'know, Jeff, I am supposed to give a talk to the Silicon Valley Hillel in early April.

      Tammi Benjamin spoke a year or two ago.

      I think that I may use Sarsour to illustrate my points... but I'm still chewing it over.
