Jihad Means More than “A Peaceful Self-Struggle”!

Linda Sarsour, a Muslim activist, has called for jihad against U.S. President Donald J. Trump. In her speech addressing the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) on July 6, 2017, she said: “when a man asked prophet Muhammad about the best form of jihad, he replied it is a word of truth in front of tyrant ruler.” And then she said:

“I hope that … when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts from us that 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.”

One may disagree with her views on President Trump, but Sarsour has every right to express her opinion. However, calling for “jihad” against our president is an extremely serious red flag that we should not ignore.

    If she want to be an activist, let her be active – in a sand-rat hole in Syria or Afganisthan

    • WalterBannon

      let her be active as she approaches terminal velocity after being pushed out of a C130 at 20000 feet over Syria without a chute..

      I am stumped.
      Persia ?

      • vwVwwVwv

        Persia drowned in her own blood and ashes when in the 7 century the
        country, weakened by wars with Rome, was conquered by Arab
        barbarians, who looted burned and murdered a
        great culture turning the lands in the
        deserts you know today as
        Iran and Iraq.

    Where was she for the 8 years of Obama’s oppression and the 4000+ murders in Chicago to mainly Blacks.

    Oh that’s right…Obama was the house Negro for the Saudi’s where he allowed about 5 jihad slaughters and the BLM terrorists to shot cops and riot.
    Time for a Jihad agianst muslims to boot their pathetic butts back to the hell holes they crawled out from as part of out “peaceful” struggle against fascists and a death-cult.
    Muslims like her want to prompt a response to point at it and proof that americans hate muslims and we must defeat the infidels and claim the nation for allah.

    I still say that she’s trans gender as a man wanting to be a women. Men that try to be women do not know how to use make-up and look like hookers or like Linda that belongs in the wax museum . Muslims know exactly what she means for Jihad while the media buy her snake-oil that it’s an inner struggle.

    The claim that jihad means “peaceful self-struggle” is a rather recent concocted one. Jihad is to be waged against the non believers according to the true meaning in Islam.

      What do muslims say about Jihad?

      Jihad is an Arabic word from the root Jee Ha Da. It literally means to struggle or strive. Jihad is struggling or striving in the way or sake of Allah. Jihad takes a very important status in the doctrine of Islam and is one of the basic duties for every Muslim.

      jJihad is the striving and struggling to advance Islam in the world; the key part of this is the intent to promote islam by this effort. Therefore military jihad is striving to advance islam by direct action. Fitness jihad is getting fit, but not exclusively for the benefit of the exerciser, but with the ultimate goal of this fit person fighting on the battlefield to defeat non-muslims.

      Jihad has many forms,
      Jihad of the heart/soul (jihad bin nafs/qalb)
      Jihad by the tongue (jihad bil lisan)
      Jihad by the pen/knowledge (jihad bil qalam/ilm)
      Jihad by the hand (jihad bil yad)
      Jihad by the sword (jihad bis saif)

      Muslims will tell the public that jihad has nothing to do with warfare, but the truth is that jihad is all the things that are done to promote islam in the world, either directly or indirectly. Jihad can be peaceful, as long as it helps muslims to take over the world for islam.

    “Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad, that we are struggling against tyrants and rulers……..in these United States of America.”

    Everybody knows exactly what she means. She’s calling for the violent overthrow of the legitimate US government. This needs to be hung on the Democrats.

    Would it not be better if the media just ignored this woman? She only thrives on publicity. Without it she is just another whine in the wind.
