There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. It is a dimension where a school hosts a conference on Antisemitism and invites an anti-Semite to speak. That’s the signpost up ahead — your next stop, the Linda Sarsour Zone
This is beyond crazy. The fact that the New School invited an anti-Semite like Linda Sarsour to speak at an event entitled “Anti-Semitism and the Struggle for Justice” is crazy enough, but the fact that she used the opportunity to spew an anti-Semitic stereotype, pushes it into the Twilight Zone.
Which Candidate Do You Support in the Republican Primaries?
During her words at the event, Sarsour used the anti-Semitic canard about Jews controlling the media
“If what you’re reading all day long, morning and night, in the Jewish media is that Linda Sarsour and Minister Farrakhan are the existential threats to the Jewish community, something really bad is gonna happen and we gonna miss the mark on it,” Sarsour remarked in an event intended to be “a discussion on how to combat” bigotry against Jews.
Sarsour also claimed that “the existential threat (to the Jewish community) resides in the White House, in the highest offices of these lands.” She also claimed that Americans currently live “under fascism” and defended her participation in the boycott, divest, sanction movement, which seeks to economically sanction and isolate the Jewish state.
If the Jews really controlled the media she would never receive coverage, nor would her protector in the Senate, Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), or her other fans such as NY Governor Cuomo, or the liberal anti-Trump women who have been running protests such as The Day Without Women. Heck if the Jews controlled the media I would be a regular contributor to a cable news network.
Minister Farrakhan who Sarsour mentioned also being slandered by the Jewish-controlled media, has been inciting hatred against Jews for decades. And no one has damaged him more than his own words. Perhaps the nicest thing he ever said about the Jews was Judaism is a gutter religion. But there are many other examples like his 2015 Saviours day speech when he claimed the Jews were responsible for 9/11
It is now becoming apparent that there were many Israelis and Zionist Jews in key roles in the 9/11 attacks. Israelis had foreknowledge of the attacks… We know that many Jews received a text message not to come to work on September 11”
In another speech, Farrakhan crawled out from under a rock to claim that today’s Jews are fake. They are not the Children of Israel, American Blacks are, Jews just use their monetary power to keep the black man down.
But it was natural for Sarsour to blame the Jewish Media for slandering Farrakhan, she thinks just like him. Sarsour is an anti-Semite, and she constantly trashes the United States.
Much of modern Antisemitism is different from the traditional Jew-hatred, it is disguised as anti-Zionism, and claimed to be simply criticism of Israel. In 2009 while Barack Obama was president, the US State Department defined Antisemitism the list is long but one of the items includes, denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, and denying Israel the right to exist [also known as Zionism]
Sarsour favors a one-state solution where an Arab majority and a Jewish minority would live together within the borders of a single country. She made clear her opposition to Israel’s existence as a Jewish state when she tweeted in October 2012 that “nothing is creepier than Zionism.”
According Sarsour Zionists cannot be feminists. “It just doesn’t make any sense for someone to say, ‘Is there room for people who support the state of Israel and do not criticize it in the movement?’ There can’t be in feminism. You either stand up for the rights of all women, including Palestinians, or none. There’s just no way around it,” Sarsour said.
She should tell that to my friend Dr. Phyllis Chesler who is not only a Zionist but an internationally recognized leader of the feminist movement.
Sarsour also supports the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions (BDS) movement, an initiative that uses various forms of public protest, economic pressure, and court rulings to advance the agenda of permanently destroying Israel as a Jewish nation-state. The Democratic Party protected Jew-hater also falsely maintains that a “Palestine existed before the State of Israel,”
The hate-monger Sarsour doesn’t expend all of her venom on Jews:
- Typical of her charm and grace, she said of Brigitte Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, two leading anti-Islamists (and the latter a victim of female genital mutilation), “I wish I could take their vaginas away — they don’t deserve to be women.”
- “Well, the way that works in our country right now is that there is law and then there is national security. So anything in the name of national security, every law goes out of the window … So yes the FBI is – if not the same – worse than the NYPD. And it’s not just the FBI.Let’s talk about our CBP, border patrol, between the American and Canadian border.
In 2012, the Investigative Project on Terrorism noted:
An Islamist activist honored by the White House last December as a “Champion of Change” called Zionism “racism” this week and said “nothing is creepier” than the belief in a Jewish homeland.
Linda Sarsour also posted two links on her Twitter feed to a rabidly anti-Israel video by a New York poet that accuses Israel of ethnic cleansing and mocks interfaith dialogue as selling out.
Sarsour has been invited to at least seven White House meetings since April 2010, records show. All but one were with Paul Monteiro, associate director of the White House Office of Public Engagement. The most recent meeting took place seven months ago. Last week, the Investigative Project on Terrorism reported on hundreds of White House meetings involving radical Islamists like Sarsour.
Sarsour, director of the Arab American Association of New York, is on record defending terror suspects, casting skepticism over law enforcement investigations and advancing conspiracy theories. Despite her access to the administration, Sarsour described support for President Obama as a “lesser of two evils” proposition for Muslim voters.
She also believes there is a government conspiracy against Muslims and that the authorities were behind Malcolm X’s assassination. During a Feb. 23, 2012 interview with Russia TV, Sarsour claimed that “Islamophobia” today is a continuation of the genocide of native Americans and the slavery of African-Americans. “This has happened throughout the history of our country; our country was based on, you know, genocide on native Americans, based on slavery, racial profiling has existed for centuries in this community,” she said.
Perhaps the reason the New School invited Linda Sarsour to speak at this conference was just to show her as a prime example of an anti-Semite—if that’s not the case, we really are in another dimension.
