Looks like Linda has bigger things to tackle than the plight of of Arab Brooklyn through her non-profit:
With the victory Trump as POTUS resigned from her Brooklyn Arab league to take om the Nation now in the grips of her apparent enemy, The Donald.
"Sarsour leaving post at Arab American Association of NY"
One of the consequences of our cherished free press, and right to mouth off anyone, restrained only by our Common Law Libel and Slander laws, is the insidious lurking of what President Trump has recognized as "Fake News." Stephen K. Bannon, within Trump's closest circle has aptly termed this phenomena in a broader view by dubbing its still broader context as the 'corporatist, globalist media', and it appears that Linda is one of its ablest practitioners.
She happens to be a prime sample (an example) of what a open immigration policy will produce from a Muslim Palestinian - as distinguished from the late Christian Palestinian of Columbia University, Edward Said. Unlike Said, who turned Literature Chair at his university into a pulpit for the Palestinian cause under the banner of anti-Orientalism, Linda's agenda is much cruder.
After 9/11 she joined a one-staff organization to provide language and legal services for Arab immigrants in Brooklyn, into an organization of 16 full time staph members which supported her Islamism program. She was probably one of the fiercest promoters of the notion of ISLAMOPHOBIA - the notion that in spite of the horrors of September 11, 2001, in relation to Islam and Muslims in the United States we have nothing to fear but fear itself.
Now this Demagogue is contemplating writing her first book, as she is leaving her local organization.
I wonder if she hasn't been asked to resign by more American Arabs who are significantly more intellectually honest than she or Edward Said ?
And here is even a more fascinating query. Her reputation, except in the eyes of Dr. Daniel Pipes, appears intact in the mainstream media. Any close scrutiny of her physical appearance, and logic of her discourse, makes this Palestinian woman a very strange sample of what the Palestinian State would produce. Is the an good example of the Palestinian Nation, as regards her Intellect, Culture, and Womanhood ?
Reading her book may become the most peculiar oddity to cross my desk, if she ever gets it published.
The Status of Linda Sarsour in the popular American mind, that she's some sort of hero for the nobility of Muslim American Sharia Islamist, with tablecloth head gear, and dresses to the floor, but tightly form fitting, is a prime example, don't you think, of how the Fake News Cooperate Media operates under its self-promoting platitude of Freedom of the Press?
