Anti-Israel activist and Woman’s March co-chair Linda Sarsour was excoriated as an “antisemite” on Sunday by a former ally who once headed the DC chapter of the popular political movement.
Mercy Morganfield, who is also the daughter of famed American blues singer-songwriter Muddy Waters, took to Facebook to upbraid Sarsour after the latter posted a link to an article that accused the Jewish community of waging a “profound war on black people.”
Linda Sarsour took the stage at the Women’s March Saturday morning and used the platform to express her support for the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
The movement calls for companies and groups to protest and penalize the state of Israel over their treatment of the Palestinian people. The official BDS website describes the movement as one trying to uphold “the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity,” while others view it as anti-Semitic.
Video has surfaced of the hijab-wearing feminist heroine Linda Sarsour speaking in California in December, complaining about her education:
I went to public school. My parents couldn’t afford to send seven children to Islamic school … As I grew older, I realized that I got cheated out of my Islamic education. You know what I feel like I got cheated out of? Nobody told me that my beloved Prophet Muhammad was an activist. He was a human rights activist.
Muhammad was a human rights activist? Only if Jews do not count as humans.
The other day, without giving much thought to it, I shared on a friend’s Facebook page an article from a Norwegian alternative-news website, Resett, about a day-care center in Oslo that recently held an “activity day” at which the children (most of whom are not Muslims) were given hijab to wear and taught to pray while kneeling on carpets. In order to establish the proper mood, the lights were dimmed. During the exercise, the children were treated to the sound of the Islamic call to prayer and to a recitation of verses of the Koran. The whole event was explained to the children as a “magical circle time.”
We should try to be more understanding of Islam… and listen to folks like Louie here
On December 3, the European Commission hosted a “high-level conference to address intolerance, hate speech and discrimination affecting Muslims in the EU”. According to the EU press release, “By sharing good practices, the aim of the event is to identify key actions at all levels to address intolerance, racism and discrimination against Muslims in the coming years”. The event brought together over 100 “representatives of national authorities, civil society, academia, the religious community, EU agencies and international organisations.”
There is, according to the European Commission, a “need for action”, as “unfavourable views of Muslims appear to have surged in the past few years”.
It is no secret that the Enlightenment shaped Western civilization as we know it today. Although philosophers of the Age of Enlightenment did not share a universal definition for the term, they shared a common goal of advocating individual sovereignty. “Sapere aude! [Dare to be wise!] Have courage to use your own understanding!” is what Immanuel Kant referred to as “the motto of the enlightenment.”
How leftist lies, propaganda and censorship led to the beheading’s of two Scandinavian woman.
Often times the left is so full of lies and denial the younger generation does not know the difference. They are brainwashed that Islam is a great religion despite it horrendous violent teachings, the youth are told Muslims are enriched with culture. While the left promotes these falsehoods, they deny that woman are second class citizens in most the Islamic world, and even the Islamic Qu’ran teaches that a woman is only worth 1/2 of a man.
First in a series on the American left: Will left-wing anti-Zionists and anti-Semites in America succeed in hollowing out the traditional liberal left in the United States, as they have in Britain and France?
In the early spring of this year, an angry dispute broke out in the United Kingdom between the mainstream Jewish communal organizations and the leader of the radical left, currently head of the Labour Party, who is Jeremy Corbyn; and a couple of days later, a roughly similar dispute broke out in France between the equivalent French Jewish organization and Corbyn’s counterpart on the French left, who is Jean-Luc Mélenchon; and the double outbreak suggested a trend, which raises a question. It is about America and the Democratic Party. To wit: When the delegates to the Democratic National Convention assemble less than two years from now, will the showdown between centrists and progressives that everyone expects actually occur? Will a few zealots of anti-Zionism take their place among the progressives? Will they push their way to the microphone, and will they send mad orations beaming outward to the American public, calling for the elimination of an entire country? And will the mad orations lead to grisly chants and an occasional outbreak of medieval superstition, hither and yon? In short, will the same miserable battle that has torn apart large portions of the European left spread to America, not just on a miniature scale (which has already happened), but full blast, with national consequences? This is not a silly question.
If you cultivate the Islamic vote as all our political parties do then anti-semitism is inevitable. It will be subtle at first, as in the Liberal party’s funding to “Palestinian” terrorists under the guise of “humanitarianism” and restoring Canada’s position as an “honest broker” in the Middle East. Soon, very soon as we have seen, the Khalid’s of the world will have infiltrated. It only gets worse.
Bernhard Falk is no stranger to prisons. A convicted leftist terrorist, he spent 12 years behind bars. Now he looks after imprisoned Islamists. Germany’s domestic intelligence agency considers him a danger to society.
One of the advantages of a constitutional state that ensures the rule of law is that it also applies those rights to people who deeply reject it. Even those who want to abolish the democratic system and fight by force for an Islamic state have the right to a fair trial with a lawyer of their choice. And this is exactly where Bernhard Falk’s self-proclaimed line of work begins. An imposing man with a large graying beard and balding head, he describes himself as an “emergency responder.”
Falk’s places of deployment are courtrooms and prisons. He looks after Islamist prisoners and travels the country up and down: returnees from Syria who presumably fought for the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS) or other jihadi groups; members of the German Salafist scene who are accused of having recruited for jihad or of having helped young men on their way out to the Middle Eastern war zone; Islamists who are suspected to have sent money or equipment to the IS area and radicalized people who are prosecuted for planning terror attacks in Germany. For Falk they are all “Muslim political prisoners.”
A Green Party local leader has stepped down after his role as mediator in a proposed voter scam involving a mosque and up to 3,000 votes was revealed.
The Conservative Party in the Swedish town of Botkyrka has been offered thousands of Muslim votes in exchange for a new building permit for Alby Mosque. Remarkably, the contacts were communicated by a senior member of their archrivals, the Green Party, national broadcaster SVT reported.
According to SVT, Conservative councilwoman Stina Lundgren and her secretary’s visit to Alby Mosque in June took an unexpected turn, when they were told that the Islamic community could give them as many as 3,000 extra votes in the upcoming election, should they agree to grant building permits for a new mosque. Local imams would then urge the congregation to vote Conservative during Friday prayers.
Yesterday, I had long social media conversations with two Somali Muslim gentlemen from Minneapolis, Minnesota. I asked them about their goals for improving Minnesota and how they feel about being an American. I also asked them about the million dollar upgrade at Cedar Riverside public housing that Mayor Jacob Frey promised its majority Somali residents this week. After I was called a racist, a fascist, a bigot, stupid and old, here’s what else they shared with me. Nearly verbatim. Thoughts?
