In a fired-up speech at the Islamic Society of North America’s 54th annual convention, which wrapped up on July 3, Muslim activist Linda Sarsour called for a form of jihad against the Trump administration.
Sarsour, who was the main organizer of the massive, nationwide women’s march after Trump’s inauguration, and is a strong advocate for Sharia Law, was one of the main speakers at the Islamic convention.
In her speech, she drew a strange comparison with the 9/11 attacks and the Trump administration:
“It’s been 16, almost 17 years since the horrific attacks of 9/11, and we still, as a community, find ourselves unprepared in so many moments. Why, sisters and brothers, why are we so unprepared? Why are we so afraid of this administration and the potential chaos that they will ensue on our community, and we already saw their potential when they come out every few weeks, Muslim ban 1, Muslim ban 2, Muslim ban 3. They are relentless, they are presistant and consistent, and want to see how much we as a community can endure and how hard we are going to fight back against this administration.”
“I hope 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 the United States, where you have facists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House.”
Sarsour told her fellow Muslims, “We have to stay outraged!” She said when she wakes up every morning and remembers who is in the White House, “I am outraged!”

Sarsour has been a busy activist in opposing the Trump administration and organizing protests, and has been heavily involved in building up the Women’s March group all across the nation to protest against President Trump.
