Linda Sarsour made the comments at the Islamic Society of North America Convention over the Fourth of July weekend.
Women’s March Organizer Linda Sarsour called for “jihad” against President Trump at the annual Islamic Society of North America convention over the Fourth of July weekend.
Sarsour recounted that the Prophet Muhammed had once told a Muslim that the best weapon for jihad was “a word of truth.”
“I hope that we – when we stand up to those who oppress our communities that Allah accepts from us as a form of jihad. That we are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only abroad in the Middle East or on the other side of the world but here in these United States of America where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House,” Sarsour said.
Sarsour also targeted Muslims who did not adhere to her left-wing ideology, saying that they sided with the “oppressors.”
“If you maintain the current status quo that not only oppresses Muslims but oppresses black people inside our community and outside our community, undocumented people, other minority groups and oppressed groups, you my brothers and sisters are then aligned with the oppressors,” she said.
Sarsour has a history of anti-Israel and pro-Sharia comments, as well as connections to terrorist organizations.
