"Lying is not always bad, to be sure; there are times when telling a lie is more profitable and better for the general welfare, and for the settlement of conciliation among people, than telling the truth." - Afif A. Tabbarah, The Spirit of Islam, page 247.
Throughout our life journey, we all encounter a snake in the grass - those who feign friendship with the intent to deceive (like most politicians). Often the encounter is benign. Rarely is the brush life-threatening... that is, unless the snake happens to be carrying a Quran.
The hijab-donning, faux-feminist Linda Sarsour happens to be one of that poisonous species.
Just a cursory look at Sarsour and her history of hate:
• Close family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, whose mission statement is, "Allah is our objective; the Quran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations."
• Clear history of anti-Semitism: supporter of the BDS movement against Israel; friend and honored supporter of convicted terrorist Rasmea Odeh (who killed two Israeli Jewish students in 1969); advocates a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in which the Jewish state would no longer exist, etc.
• Sharia Islamic Law advocate: Sarsour supports, without reservation, the Islamic law practiced in Saudi Arabia (birthplace of Islam), where women have no rights, they are the property or chattels of men, can be sexually used or abused by their Muslim husbands (or by any Muslim man, if she happens to be a infidel woman), be executed for adultery (or perceived adultery), must wear the hijab (ask her what happens if she chooses to remove it).
In a recent speech at the national convention of Muslim Brotherhood front group ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) in Illinois, she quoted what's considered a second-rate hadith, speaking to devout Muslims (who know the codes and implications she chose to impart):
4344. It is narrated that Abu Sa'eed Al-Khurdi said: "The messenger of Allah said: 'The best of jihad is a just word spoken to an oppressive Sultan' or 'an oppressive Amir.'" (hasan - second-rate)
She cleverly didn’t quote the accepted translation:
2794. It was narrated that Amr bin Abasah said: "I came to the prophet and said: 'O messenger of Allah, what Jihad is best?' He said: '(That of a man) whose blood is shed and his horse is wounded.'" (sahih - good, accepted)
Like a venomous serpent, she carefully hisses her deception through her forked tongue - to a willing and salivating audience ready to take up arms against the infidels (like their brethren globally, who have already committed over 31,000 deadly Islamic terror attacks since 9-11).
Thomas Paine once said,
"We fight not to enslave, but to set a country free, and to make room upon the earth for honest men to live in."
If we continue to permit vile, demeaning and hateful creatures such as Linda Sarsour a platform to spew their bigoted, anti-American, anti-Semitic refuse, we will be guilty of trampling on the blood of the patriots that sacrificed life and limb to gift us this incredible treasure of liberty known nowhere else on earth.
We must denounce Sarsour and her hideous, bloodthirsty Islamic hordes whose ultimate goal is to grab us by our infidel hair and drag us back into their Quranic caves.
Shalom through strength.
