Jihad-preaching Linda Sarsour declares legal jihad on people who “defame my character”

Speaking of jihad by court…

Source: Linda Sarsour declares legal Jihad on people who “defame my character”

Sarsour was all over the news recently when she called for “Jihad” against Trump. Many people construed that as some form of call to religious war or violence — something understandable given the common current usage of the term by Islamic terrorists and extremists

Using Sarsour’s definition of Jihad, Sarsour has declared legal Jihad on her critics, threatening to hold them monetarily accountable.

The spark for this legal Jihad threat appears to have been an article in The Algemeiner, Colorado Jewish Cemetery Promised $100,000 by BDS Activist Linda Sarsour in March 2017 Says Money Still Hasn’t Arrived:

A Jewish cemetery in Colorado that has fallen into severe disrepair has yet to receive a check for some $100,000 from a group associated with Palestinian-American BDS activist Linda Sarsour, despite being promised the money several months ago, The Algemeiner learned on Tuesday.

Neal Price of the Golden Hill Cemetery in Lakewood, CO said he had left three unreturned voicemails for Tarek El-Messidi, the founder of non-profit Islamic education organization Celebrate Mercy, who led the high-profile effort by the Muslim community in February and March to raise money for vandalized Jewish cemeteries in the US. El-Messidi’s partner in the effort was Sarsour.

The Algemeiner then goes into details of the cemetery’s frustration trying to obtain the funds. What’s interesting is what The Algemeiner article does not say — it doesn’t accuse Sarsour of stealing the money, keeping it in her bank account, or doing anything else. The Algemeiner added this update regarding Sarsour’s response:

UPDATE: In a response she issued following the publication of this story, Sarsour told The Algemeiner that El-Messidi was “awaiting a proposal from the cemetery for potential costs so they can be allocated. This proposal/estimates have not been delivered to Tarek and Celebrate Mercy, who too have to maintain the intention and integrity of the donations received. We promised people they would all go to helping Jewish cemeteries and that’s where they will all go.”

On Facebook, however, Sarsour threatened legal action in a post that seemed disconnected from the actual Algemeiner article content:

I have the unfortunate receipts of what it costs to be a target of the right wing, alt-right, right wing zionists. This has caused my family great emotional stress & trauma. It’s not free to keep my family safe. I just want people to know I am taking names of media outlets and prominent individuals who have used the last few months to defame my character. I may be quiet but they will pay with their pockets.

Today’s most recent outrageousness is questioning my integrity around the campaign to raise money for Jewish cemeteries. Algemeiner a right wing Zionist media outlet regurgitated a story that I already had responded to a few weeks ago. You can call me what you want BUT DO NOT EVER QUESTION my integrity.

We set out to raise $20K and raised over $100K thanks to generosity of so many people. We ensured that the St. Louis Cemetery (the original focus) received the funds they needed, and we found others who also had incidents of vandalism, etc. The money is being administered by CelebrateMercy, NOT me. There still is money left over and Tarek El-Messidi found a cemetery in Colorado that has been in shambles for years being cared for by a legally blind man. Tarek went and visited them (you can read more in this article) and said that once they had a plan to take on this huge project Tarek would be ready with the funds.

I am exhausted. I am tired of the lies, lies, and more lies. It’s too much and it reignites the most vitriolic human beings on this earth. I am not safe and someone will pay for this with their pockets. Big time.

Sarsour also took to Twitter with a series of tweets along the same lines:

Sarsour has many powerful friends, including the ACLU which issued a statement supporting her…

There also is a huge pool of sympathetic leftists “journalists” ready to come to her aid.

But she’ll need more than the help of the ACLU and friendly leftist journalists to win a defamation suit. If it’s ever brought.

Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch, for one, seems anxious to partake in Sarsour’s legal jihad, via Linda Sarsour warns critics after calling for “jihad” against Trump: “I am taking names”:

Well, come and get me, Ms. Sarsour. If I am on your enemies list, I do hope you got my name right: it’s Robert, not Richard, and Spencer, not Spenser. If you sue, our day in court will be most interesting: I argued that you, as a devout and knowledgeable Muslim, must know that the Qur’an’s primary vision of jihad involves violence and warfare, and so does that of the Hadith and Islamic law. To claim that I was “lying” about you, you would have to demonstrate that you’re completely ignorant of Islamic texts and teachings. And that could have unfortunate implications for your reputation among your legions of followers. This could be great fun!


Is Sarsour simply instilling terror into the hearts of her enemies, particularly any media outlet that might still dare tell the truth? Grab some popcorn.

  1. Linda Sarsour, will find Robert Spencer knowledgeable & able to dismantle “Sarsour’s” Islamic arguments!

    She will also find Christians & non-Muslims informed thanks to Robert Spencer.

    I wld advise her to not engage Robert Spencer.

  2. How can you defame the character of someone who has no character? She’s a walking defamation of herself. She’s the exception to the rule “there’s a little good in everybody.” I hope grief causes her to take her own life. There Linda, how’s that?

  3. Idle threats to Mr. Spencer! hahahahahaha! IT WOULD BE AWESOME fun if she did sue him though, and he could publish the whole trial. THIS ALONE would expose the Goal of Islam. Sarsour may be arrogant, but she is not stupid. She won’t sue. Robert Spencer walks, talks and breathes Islam, without worship of the evil Allah. He is a Christian and I PRAISE YESHUA FOR HIM!

    • Site admin wondering if your response may cause legal ramifications? I say INVITE HER! But be prepared for her backlash! And keep ’em locked and loaded!

  4. Truth is an absolute defense to Slander and Libel. Moreover, she is a public figure so she would have to prove actual malice. I hope she brings her frivolous suits in a looser-pay jurisdiction.

  11. Sarsour – We will not be intimidated!
    The Non Mainstream Press – Hey Linda, about that speech you made recently..
    Sarsour – Help! The evil right wing Zionists are intimidating me!

  12. This malignant narcissist just ranked herself right up there with moe moe the pedo and his ‘god’ allah the creeplah of crapslam when she said she should never be criticized. Next she will want to be added to the shithada, oh er I mean shahada.

  13. Thesent Muslim fanatics believe, that “allah” will reward them with 72 Virgins & they could Not be more Wrong! Mohammad was a Dyslexic & misread the Quran! It says, “with 27 Virgins will I reward You, BUTT YOU won’t know if they are Male or female, until You get here SUCKERS”!!!

  14. She’s sick, who’s soul is the color black her personality is evil, her heart, if she has one, is cold & angry., her eyes are empty and dark.
    How pathetic and exhausting to be her.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
