Anti-Semite Linda Sarsour Endorses Bernie Sanders, Claims She Supports Jews

Notorious anti-Semite, Islamic supremacist and Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for president and is touting her support for the socialist Democrat presidential candidate by claiming she “supports Jews”.

“At a time of a startling rise in white nationalism and anti-Semitism, I would be so proud to win, but also to make history and elect the first Jewish American president this country has ever seen and his name to be Bernard Sanders,” Sarsour said on the campaign trail Saturday.

“Bernie Sanders believes in us and he believes in our worth as a people. We all deserve health care and access to higher education, an economy where all can thrive, not just the 1 percent and a transformative foreign policy, one that is centered on peace and diplomacy,” she continued. “A foreign policy that sees Palestinians as human beings and deserving of human rights and self-determination.”

Sarsour’s support of the Jewish senator contradicts her long history of disparaging the Jewish community. The “social justice” activist has regularly professed hostility towards Israel in numerous anti-Semitic tweets.

She has worked with anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who recently compared Jews to termites, and has praised his organization as a vital part of Muslim life in the United States.

Farrakhan has gone so far as to explicitly celebrate being compared to Hitler.

“When they talk about Farrakhan, call me a hater, you know what they do, call me an anti-Semite. Stop it. I am anti-termite. The Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a great name. Hitler was a very great man.”

Sarsour, one of the nation’s most prominent supporters of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (also known as the BDS), has warned that women who support Israel aren’t feminists and has persistently refused to acknowledge the plight of women living under Sharia Law, which she has publicly expressed support for.

Sarsour is a regular at fundraising events for Council on American-Islamic Relations, an Islamic organization that was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

What exactly is Bernie Sanders’ perspective on Isis? Is the senator aware that Sarsour has defended the terror group ISIS in the past? “The root of the problem doesn’t come from within the Muslim community. It comes from a politicized foreign policy of war on our people, and those most directly impacted by groups like ISIS and wars are Muslims. So I don’t know why we have to protect ourselves in the media, when we are not the ones who created the problem.”

To be clear, Sarsour has a history with Bernie Sanders and endorsed Sanders in the 2016 presidential primaries.

Sanders also has a history with Sarsour. In fact, he praised the activist for organizing the controversial 2017 Women’s March. The very same Women’s March that actress Alyssa Milano denounced for its overt anti-Semitism and Jew hatred.

In September 2018, Sarsour blamed Jews for incidents of U.S. police officers shooting unarmed black people.

In 2017, Sarsour called for jihad, warfare against non-Muslims, against the Trump administration. Speaking at the annual conference of the Islamic Society of North America, a group that the Investigative Project on Terrorism notes was an “unindicted co-conspirator” in a terror-funding prosecution and was allegedly “created by members of the Muslim Brotherhood,” Sarsour called on the Muslim community to unite against the White House.

“I hope that we, when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts us from us that as a form of jihad,” Sarsour said. “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,” she declared.

In July, the Hamas-tied Women’s March leader again called for a jihad against President Trump, warning she’d take action against the president if anything happens to the far-left “squad,” Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN, Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).

“If anything happens to AOC, Ilhan, Rashida or Ayanna, I will hold this president responsible,” Sarsour tweeted Monday. “This is serious. It’s not a game.”

The real question is where does this leave Senator Sanders? It’s well established that Linda Sarsour is an outright Jew and Israel hater, that has more in common with the Alt-Right than your average American will ever have. Would it be fair to say that Bernie Sanders can now be considered a clear hater of Israel and a supporter of modern Anti-Semitism?
