Take a radical Palestinian-American-Muslim, racial justice & civil rights activist, mix with MSNBC, shake well and you never know what kind of batshit crazy nonsense you’re going to hear.
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday’s MSNBC Live, Linda Sarsour of the Arab-American Association of New York received no pushback from host Jose Diaz-Balart over her inflammatory assertion that some of the Republican presidential candidates “think they can mass murder civilians across the world” to defeat the ISIS threat.
She also absurdly claimed that the U.S. killed 650,000 civilians in Iraq, even though most estimates place the total number of Iraqis killed by the U.S. military much lower.
As Diaz-Balart introduced the segment, he played up the idea that Republicans may not “focus on keeping” American Muslims “safe” and suggested they may be “isolated” as he showed several clips from the GOP presidential debate from Tuesday.
And hey, what do you know?

So of course this insane woman is very prestigious in ObamaWorld!
Linda Sarsour is a working woman, community activist, and mother of three. Ambitious, outspoken and independent, Linda shatters stereotypes of Muslim women while also treasuring her religious and ethnic heritage. Currently she is the Advocacy and Civic Engagement Coordinator for the National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC), a network of 22 Arab American organizations in 11 states including the District of Columbia, nationwide where she conducts trainings nationally on the importance of civic engagement in the Arab and Muslim American community. Locally she serves as the Director of the Arab American Association of New York, a social service agency serving the Arab community in NYC. Linda’s strengths are in the areas of community development, youth empowerment, community organizing, civic engagement and immigrants’ rights advocacy.
So cozy with the Obamas.
The Obama administration kept its promise of an open Obama White House – for radical Islamists. The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) has reported on hundreds of White House meetings to which the Islamists have been invited.
“Court documents and other records have identified many of these visitors as belonging to groups serving as fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and other Islamic militant organizations,” the Investigative Project on Terrorism reported. It based its findings on an exhaustive analysis of millions of White House visitor log entries, which the IPT correlated with lists of officials of known radical Islamist groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). This group, said to be affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, a jihadist charitable front group whose officials were convicted of funneling money to Hamas.
Earlier this year, as Michelle Malkin reported, “White House officials welcomed a foreign delegation of the radical Sharia-enforcing Muslim Brotherhood from Egypt.”
One repeat visitor to the Obama White House is Linda Sarsour, a Palestinian Muslim American activist and a self-proclaimed “pure New Yorker, born and raised in Brooklyn.” Records confirm that Sarsour has been invited to at least seven White House meetings since April 2010.
Sarsour doesn’t just have an open door to the Obama White House. She was also honored by the White House last December as a “Champion of Change.”
The kind of change Sarsour champions is the end of the Jewish state of Israel.
Sarsour serves the Obama administration’s purpose of whitewashing radical Islam. For example, after claiming to be a feminist herself, she wrote on the blog Hijabi Revolution that “Islam is a religion of feminists for feminists… Islam as a religion is built on many feminist principles around equality and economic empowerment of women.”
You read that correctly. This Obama White House guest – its “champion of change” – is spinning a make-believe story. In truth, Islamic law stipulates a gender-segregated, patriarchal society in which women are treated as inferior beings.
