Linda Sarsour, a Palestinian-American activist who has expressed support for terrorists, recently called on Muslims to wage a form of “jihad” against the Trump administration.
Speaking at the 54th annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) last week, Sarsour said that she was not advocating for a violent form of jihad.
“A word of truth in front of a tyrant ruler or leader, that is the best form of jihad,” she said, quoting the Islamic prophet Muhammad.
“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 the other side of the world, but here in these United States of America where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reining in the White House,” said Sarsour, who was named a “Champion of Change” by the Obama administration in 2012.
