How many times have we been told that Muslims don’t want to change America, but just take advantage of our prosperity. However, one Muslim activist is telling other Muslims here in America that they don’t have to assimilate and that they need to resist President Trump in a form of jihad. To no surprise, she made her emphatic speech in Illinois, Obama’s political home state.
Controversial Muslim activist Linda Sarsour gave a fiery speech last weekend where she said fellow Muslim-Americans do not have to “assimilate” and blasted Trump administration policies, even suggesting that resisting those policies could count as a “form of jihad.”
Sarsour’s remarks came at the annual Islamic Society of North America convention in Illinois. Sarsour, who was a lead organizer in the Women’s March after President Trump’s inauguration, slammed the new administration, specifically referring to the president’s executive order to temporarily ban travel from six predominantly Muslim countries.
“Why are we so afraid of this administration and the potential chaos that they will ensue on our community — and we already saw their potential when they come out every few weeks with Muslim ban one, Muslim ban two, Muslim ban three. They are relentless, they are persistent and consistent, and want to see how much we as a community can endure and want to see who our friends are and how hard we’re going to fight back against this administration,” Sarsour said, adding she is “outraged” when she “wakes up in the morning” and remembers “who is sitting in the White House.” …
The US Constitution guarantees freedom of religion but not the freedom to destroy our nation, as radical Muslims like Sarsour want to do. They don’t want to assimilate and enjoy what America has to offer them. Instead, they want to destroy everything we have and turn our nation into another Islamic run dictatorship filled with persecution, suppression and violence.
