This story should not be a surprise to anyone who has half a brain.
Linda Sarsour is a notorious Jew-hater. Thus, any cause with which she is associated can be assumed to be infected with the world’s oldest hatred.
Jew-hatred is an entire world view, a theory of everything. Jews are communists. Jews are capitalists. Jews are rootless. Jews are cosmopolitans. Jews killed Jesus. Jews enslaved blacks. Israel poisons Arab water. Israel steals Arab land. Jews secretly control the Federal Bank. Jews control the world. Jews are not real Jews, they are really… Khazars, Martians, fill in the blank.
And so on.
Thus, there is not a wide gulf—it’s really only a matter of style—between the poisonous Jew-hatred of Louis Farrakhan, Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez, and Mark Lamont Hill’s IslamoNazi UN rant, the silky intellectual anti-Zionism/Jew-hatred of Michelle Goldberg via (who else?) the New York Times, Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party, and the lunatic Jew-hatred spouted by newly elected Democrat congresswoman Ilhan Omar who tweeted: “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
Jew-haters all, they obsessively structure their grand unifying theory around the foundational notion that the great problems in the world—pick one, any problem will do—could be and should be solved if it were not for the malignant presence of the Jew/Jewish State.
