Palestinian-American activist Linda Sarsour called for the "best form" of jihad against the Trump administration last week saying "A word of truth in front of a tyrant ruler or leader, that is the best form of jihad," "And I hope that we, when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad. That we are struggling against tyrants and rulers, not only abroad in the Middle East or on the other side of the world, but here, in these United States of America, where you have fascists, and white supremacists, and Islamophobes reigning in the White House." Linda Sarsour defended her call for jihad against the White House Sunday, blaming the outrage over her use of the word on conservative media in a Washington Post op-ed.
Lt. Gen. (Ret.) William G. "Jerry" Boykin, United States Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence under President George W. Bush from 2002 to 2007 and currently serves as Family Research Council's Executive Vice President, spoke with the Todd Starnes show about Lijnda Sarsour calling for Jihad agasint the Trump administration and why her call for Jihad is no different than Black Lives Matter's actions. Boykin said there is no question people are going to be motivated as a result of her call to Jihad because she is credible with the left and she is associated with a network of family members in prison in Israel. Boykin went on to say we have become so conditioned to this kind of rhetoric by the left we are willing to let them get away with it.
