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

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.”
