Sarsour, Jihad and Terrorism

Muslim activist wants opposition to Trump to be ‘a form of jihad

The speech was posted on YouTube.

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. ISNA itself has a long history of ties to Islamic extremism.

She also began her speech by praising "her favorite person in the room", Siraj Wahaj, a prominent but controversial NY imam who has attracted the attention of authorities for years - and whom prosecutors included on a 3½-page list of people they said "may be alleged as co-conspirators" in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, though he was never charged, the Associated Press reported. It's a concept within Islam that represents a commitment to serve God, and to be good to yourself and your neighbors.

Some on twitter who agreed that she was not calling for violence in her speech said she probably shouldn't have used the word "jihad".

In the speech she pointed to Trump as an opponent of the Muslim community, saying "we are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only overseas... but here in these United States of America where we have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House".

Pro-Kannada groups call it an imposition and an attempt to promote Hindi at the cost of regional languages. A heated argument erupts between the two and Rakesh walks off without scanning his belongings.

"Sarsour, who is no stranger to controversy, has praised terrorists, defended sharia law, and attacked Brigitte Gabriel and victim of Islamic genital mutilation, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, saying they didn't deserve to be called women, adding, 'I wish I could take their vaginas away - they don't deserve to be women".

The Muslim activist then expressed her desire for Allah to accept the opposition to Trump as a "form of jihad".

In an article that emphasized Sarsour's relationships with the Democratic Party, MSNBC, Rachel Maddow and Sen.

Muslim activists and organizations have worked to educate the public about the true meaning of "jihad" since the attacks of September 11, 2001, when the term entered mainstream awareness in the U.S. There have been bus advertisements, videos, blogs and social media campaigns aimed at educating people about the word's proper meaning.

During her speech, Sarsour told a story about a man who asked the Muslim prophet "What is the best form of jihad or struggle?"
