Linda Sarsour, a Hamas-tied and prominent Women’s March leader, Islamic supremacist, and anti-Semite, has called for a “jihad” (Islamic holy war) against President Trump.
Addressing the 54th Annual ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) Convention this past weekend, Sarsour delivered a 22-minute screed attacking the Trump administration and called on the Muslim community to unite against the White House.
Sarsour began the speech thanking her “favorite person in this room … Imam Siraj Wahhaj, who has been a mentor, motivator, and encourager of mine.” She does not mention that Wahhaj was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombings.
“Why sisters and brothers, why are we so unprepared. Why are we so afraid of this administration and the potential chaos that they will ensue on our community?” she said.
Then, in a particularly vague, yet terrifying, segment of her speech, Sarsour 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.”
“We are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only abroad … but here in the United States of America, where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House,” she continued.
“When I wake up in the morning, and I remember who is sitting in the White House, I am outraged,” Sarsour exclaimed. “This is not normal, sisters and brothers. Those people sitting in the most powerful seats in this country, is not normal.”
She continued, calling upon Muslims to refuse to assimilate into America.
“Our number one and top priority is to protect and defend our community. It is not to assimilate and to please any other people in authority,” she said. “And our top priority … is to please Allah, and only Allah.”
Sarsour’s address was delivered in front of the nation’s largest Islamic advocacy group, one which has deep ties to extremism. Federal prosecutors have labeled the Islamic Society of North America as part of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood network that was initially set up to raise funds for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.
The annual ISNA convention has often featured radical Islamists. In 2001, Anwar al-Awlaki (who later became the leader of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula), gave a keynote lecture on “tolerance.” The ISNA convention is consistently rife with anti-Semitism and serves as support for U.S.-designated terrorist organizations.
Those sharing the stage with Sarsour at this year’s convention included a Holocaust denier, multiple imams who support the death penalty for homosexuals, the daughter of a convicted terrorist, and others who say Muslims should never cooperate with law enforcement. One speaker has, in the past, threatened fellow Muslims with physical violence for cooperating with police.
An estimated 20,000 people attended this year’s convention in Rosemont, Ill.

Video has surfaced of Women’s March organizer Linda Sarsour blaming a “coordinated,” “Zionist” plot to discredit her reputation. The speech, which had anti-Semitic overtones, was delivered at the same conference where she called for Muslims to commit to “jihad” against President Trump.
Sarsour explained to the crowd how she received blowback as a Women’s March organizer, proclaiming how proud she was to lead the march as a supporter of BDS, the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement.
She then alleged a coordinated right-wing smear campaign that seeks to damage her reputation.
“Every right-wing media outlet in the country. Every right-wing Zionist outlet in the country engaged in coordinated attacks against me to discredit my leadership,” Sarsour told the 54th Annual Islamic Society of North America Convention.
Sarsour added that she is thankful to have a platform as a Women’s March organizer and past keynote speaker at a City University of New York school, because it allows for her to continue to push for the boycott of Israel.
“There are people and Palestinians and solidarity activists who have been working on the issue of BDS for a long time,” Sarsour said. “Because I am privileged to have a platform, I have been able to have our country reckon with this conversation about what does it mean for a Muslim or a Palestinian-American to be part of the resistance, and to be working with allies who are now taking up the cause of BDS.”
Sarsour added that she refuses to condemn terrorism as a Muslim, because “terrorism should never be framed as a conversation that should be just had with Muslims in a country where white supremacists have killed more people since 9/11 than Muslims have.”
She later seemed to imply that U.S. foreign policy — not Muslim extremists — is responsible for terrorism.
“We have to get to the root of the problem when it comes to terrorism. 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,” Sarsour added.
She revealed that she has “people on the inside” of Qatar state-run Al Jazeera who “can help frame those stories” to portray her side in a positive light.
That same weekend, Sarsour called for Muslims to resist Trump by utilizing the concept of “jihad.” She also said that Muslims should not assimilate into America and should focus only on pleasing “Allah.”
The Hamas-tied, Islamic supremacist Women’s March organizer shared a stage at the ISNA gathering with countless radical extremists.
