Linda Sarsour Celebrated End of American Police Training in Israel…Right After Beersheba Terror Attack

Yesterday I posted some of the vile reactions to the Beersheba terror attack. Towards the end of that post I remarked:

Meanwhile, many other haters, such as Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Linda Sarsour, were simply quiet about it.

It turns out, I wasn’t entirely accurate.

On the very day of the murder spree – in fact, after it had well and truly made the news all over the world – Linda Sarsour was celebrating news that the ADL has decided to stop facilitating American police training in Israel, and defended Jew-haters who happen to be Muslim (hat tip: kweansmom):

Incidentally, the Beersheba terror attack was a stark reminder of the expertise that Israelis – police and otherwise – have in neutralizing real threats. I wasn’t planning on sharing this video, but it does show how reluctant the civilians who shot the terrorist were, with one almost losing his life because of it:

It was also a stark reminder of a possible deadly result of the hatred that some Muslims harbor towards Jews and/or the Jewish state, a hatred shared by those Sarsour was defending (and she herself harbors).

Meanwhile, Sarsour and gang might want to hold off on the (non-alcoholic) champagne:

An ADL spokesperson dismissed the protesters as misguided.

“We are not sure what they are celebrating,” the organization said in a statement to the Forward. “The program is on pause due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic — not because of outrageous and false claims made by radical anti-Israel activists.”
