As Rockets Rain Down on Israel, Linda Sarsour Defends Palestinian Terrorism
As Hamas fires tens of rockets at Israel, darling of the far Left Linda Sarsour has published a post defending their terrorism.
Palestinians aren’t in a schoolyard scuffle. Palestinians are not clashing with Israeli settlers or Israeli soldiers.
Palestinians are under a United States funded MILITARY OCCUPATION. They are terrorized every day by Israeli Defense Forces and settlers who literally squat on Palestinian land. Our fathers are beaten and detained, our young men are brutalized and some are killed. They attempt to humiliate our women and they have no mercy for elders or children. They burn down our olive trees and bulldoze Palestinian homes.
Palestinians DO NOT have a military or an army. We do not have missiles. We do not have tanks. We do not have control over our own borders or our airspace. For God’s sake we often don’t have control over water and electricity supply. Our “leaders” are under the boot of the Israeli government. Recently, Palestinian leaders could not get travel permits from the State of Israel to go to the International Criminal Court to bring a case against Israel. Imagine that! We need permission to travel to defend our human rights and bring our case to an international court!
There is an oppressor and an oppressed. There’s one side with power and one side with NONE. There is no both sides here. This is not a fair fight. The State of Israel is the one responsible for the tension, violence and oppression. They escalate it. The Palestinian people are out of options. We CANNOT wag our fingers and chastise an oppressed people for defending themselves while giving a free pass and a hefty check to those in power who oppress them. It won’t work.
Watching my people shot at, brutalized and some killed during this holy month of Ramadan is heartbreaking. It’s unacceptable. It’s unacceptable this month and every month.
Palestinians need your solidarity. They need you to challenge the dominant narrative. They need you to step in the gap. They need you to commit to not allowing your tax dollars to continue an illegal and brutal occupation.
The Palestinians need you to know that they are a resilient people. They want freedom and liberation. They want to live with dignity. They want justice – all universal values and principles we all deserve.
On behalf of Muslims everywhere, the Palestinians with mostly the shirts on their backs are defending one of the holiest sites for Muslims – Al Aqsa. Their bravery, courage and faith in God is unmatched. May God make them victorious.
How rich of Sarsour to claim the palestinians are unarmed and have no missiles – right as they fire their missiles into Israel.
How rich of Sarsour to claim they are defending Al Aqsa on behalf of all Muslims – right as they fire missiles at Jerusalem, where Al Aqsa is located, not to mention so many of their fellow Muslims.
How rich of Sarsour to speak of their “bravery and courage” – right as they fire rockets at children and almost lynched a defenseless driver today.
This woman is evil personified, and not deserving of any respect among those claiming to care about human rights.
