Far-left Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) embraced anti-Semite and alleged Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer Linda Sarsour this week on their first day in Congress.
The photos came from Sarsour’s verified Facebook account where she praised both freshman Democrats.
“These past two years have been difficult,” Sarsour wrote in a post that featured herself and Omar. “So much heartache, exhaustion, pain, losses, drama, bad policy after bad policy YET today was all worth it. Today was JOY. Today was PRIDE. Today was full of laughter and tears. For every lil girl, especially lil girls of color – this is for you. You are our future congresswomen. You are because they were.”
When Sarsour posted photos of her with Tlaib, she wrote: “Congresswoman of the people! #MuslimWomenInTheHouse”
Saudi Arabian state media has accused her of being linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, a group that the Trump administration has considered designating a terrorist organization.
The Jerusalem Post reports:
Linda Sarsour is an extremist who has “roots in [the] Muslim Brotherhood,” according to an English-language feature on Al-Arabiya, the Saudi Arabia based news channel. The article published in idiomatic English on Sunday accused the Brotherhood of “shaping the thoughts of American activist Linda Sarsour, [which resulted in] her declaring her ‘Jihad’ against US President Donald Trump.” …
… Written by Huda al-Saleh, the article sought to expose what it called “details of calls to attack Trump by US ‘Muslim Sisters’ allied to the Brotherhood.” The article began by noting that two Muslim women, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, were recently elected to the US Congress.
However, “those sponsoring and supporting the two Muslim women to reach the US Congress adopted a tactic to infiltrate through their immigrant and Black minority communities in general,” insinuating that Muslim Brotherhood activists sought to drum up support for the Democratic candidates.
Sarsour has also appeared to make pro-Muslim Brotherhood statements on her Twitter account, writing in 2011: “Yo the Muslim Brotherhood knows how to parrrttaaay! So much for radical islamists taking over! If these r – they r da coolest! #jan25 #Egypt”
Sarsour’s anti-Semitic beliefs are well documented. She recently blamed the Democrat’s downfall on their support for Israel, and the Women’s March, where she serves on the board, has recently seen a drastic decline in support after allegations of anti-Semitism have roiled the organization.
