Linda Sarsour’s ADL Problem
We told you about Tamika Mallory and her reaction to the ADL being included in "racial sensitivity" training for all Starbucks employees. Knowing her admiration for Louis Farrakhan, that should have been no surprise. Also coming from the Department of Not Being Shocked, Linda Sarsour has also expressed her objections to the ADL training. Why?
Is it because she objects to something the ADL has done over its 100 years of service at the forefront of campaigning against discrimination in the United States?
No. It’s because ADL is unapologetically Zionist.
She blasted Starbucks on Facebook, accusing the ADL of being an “anti-Arab, anti-Palestinian organization that peddles islamophobia and attacks America’s prominent Muslim orgs and activists and supports/sponsors US law enforcement agents to travel and get trained by Israeli military.”
Sarsour has taken the issue of racism and tacked it onto her her support of Palestinians. She then uses her influence in the public sphere to denigrate an anti-discrimination organization because it is Zionist. She, like many Islamists, uses racism as a wedge issue in her campaign against “Islamophobia” as well as Israel.
Those of you who still excuse Sarsour's anti-Semitism need to explain how you can excuse this quote from Sarsour's Facebook and Twitter pages:
“Starbucks almost had me on their anti-bias training for all employees UNTIL I heard ADL was enlisted as one of the orgs to build their anti-bias curriculum. An anti-Arab, anti-Palestinian organization that peddles islamophobia and attacks America’s prominent Muslim orgs and activists and supports/sponsors US law enforcement agents to travel and get trained by Israeli military.”
Remember, no matter how you feel about the Women's March or about Donald Trump, Linda Sarsour is not your friend if you are Jewish . . . unless you are one of those Jews who hates Jews. Then, you're part of the problem.
