Linda Sarsour attacks the “Jewish Media” at event on antisemitism

New York - Pro-Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour, sitting on an "Antisemitism and the Struggle for Justice" panel at New York City's The New School, blamed the “Jewish media” for her controversial reputation.

 

Sarsour’s speech – which barely touched on the issues of antisemitism and how to fight it – focused heavily on her “unapologetically Palestinian-American” identity and how she is a “very strong staunch supporter of boycott, divestment, sanctions movement” against Israel, which singles out the Jewish state and tries to isolate it economically and culturally.

 

When one panelist from Jewish Voice for Peace, a Left-wing, anti-Israel group, said Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is an “antisemite,” Sarsour pushed back.

 

 “If what you’re reading all day long, morning and night, in the Jewish media is that Linda Sarsour and Minister Farrakhan are the existential threat to the Jewish community, something really bad’s going to happen and we’re going to miss the mark on it,” she said.
