Provoking anger and disgust, a controversial Muslim “feminist” is calling for “jihad” against President Donald Trump and his administration.

Addressing the Annual Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention earlier this week, Linda Sarsour attacked him and called on the Muslim community to unite against the White House.

The word “jihad” is freighted with terror and violence to all Americans following the Twin Tower attacks that took the lives of nearly 3,000, murdered by Islamic fundamentalists on September 11th, 2001.

But the Democratic Party political operative claims she is not calling for a literal assassination, rather for all Muslims in America to unite against President Trump.

“I should be able to speak to my own community, my own faith community, use my scripture and not be criminalized for being a Muslim in America,” Sarsour said. “I’m not going to limit who I am and how I speak because people are ignorant and racist.”

On Twitter, conservatives called her a “terrorist sympathizer” and said Sarsour should be placed on a terrorist watch list or investigated by the Secret Service.

Others called for her deportation, according to the Washington Post (Sarsour, a daughter of Palestinian immigrants, was born and raised in Brooklyn).

Retweeting a Fox News story, Donald Trump Jr. said, “Who in the @DNC will denounce this activist and democrat leader calling for Jihad against Trump?”

It wasn’t that long ago that the Council on American Islamic Relations tried to put a soft focus on jihad.

CAIR launched a “My Jihad” ad campaign that was all about getting good grades, striving to be a better daughter, wrapped around a sweetness and light theme: “My Jihad is a central tenet of the Islamic creed which means struggling uphill in order to get to a better place.”

MyJihad is down now, but The Blaze captured the post and offered more information on the true meaning of Jihad:

“On Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s website here you can browse numerous photos glorifying the rockets and other weapons the group has used in their jihad against Israeli civilians. Palestinian Islamic Jihad has waged its own bus campaign in Israeli cities that is, blowing up passenger buses.”

Was Linda Sansour lying then about the violent nature of jihad, or is she lying now?
