Muslim Immigrants Must Not Assimilate, Says Progressive Ally Linda Sarsour
Muslims living in the U.S. shouldn’t assimilate into American culture, according to Linda Sarsour.
“Our number one and top priority is to protect and defend our community. It is not to assimilate and to please any other people in authority. Our obligation is to our young people, is to our women, to make sure our women are protected in our community, and our top priority, even higher than all those priorities, is to please Allah and only Allah.”
Linda Sarsour, a Muslim American and rising star among progressive Democrats, gave a haunting speech this past weekend at the annual meeting of the Islamic Society of North America.
We are never to cower to the powers that be, we are never to give up any part of our identity…
Sarsour insisted to her audience that Muslims living in America should refuse to blend into Western culture, secular government, or civic society. She proposed that Muslims should not compromise any part of their Islamic doctrines,
…you can be unapologetically Muslim, unapologetically Palestinian-American, hold strong conviction, have strong ideology and politics…
She encouraged Muslims to form alliances with other non-Muslim Americans. She stated that Muslims weren’t numerous enough on their own, that they needed to build up allies.
Sarsour supports a very orthodox Islam and wants to see the religion turn to its roots.
This is where the hypocrisy kicks in.
American “progressives” speak against theocracies in favor of democracies and free speech. They say they favor economic opportunities and gender equality. They oppose genital mutation. They want peace for Israel and Palestinians. Yet they say there should be religious tolerance for Islam?
“Yet progressives are unwilling to treat religions as legitimate political factors. That contempt for religion allows progressives to support Sarsour in the hope she rallies immigrant Muslims against President Donald Trump,” Breitbart states.
In fact, when Obama was in office, he publicly supported Sarsour, naming her a “Champion of Change.” He used her to recruit Muslims into the democratic party and offered public endorsements of Islam.
Obama gave Sarsour power and now she’s off the leash. She called for jihad against the American government and now is calling for a separation of the Muslim community.
Breitbart further illuminates:
Sarsour’s repeated use of the term “oppressor” evokes many verses in the Koran, which repeatedly urges bloody warfare against people who limit Muslims’ power. For example, verse 2:193 in the Koran declares:
“Fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah; but if they cease, Let there be no hostility except to those who practice oppression.”
