Fresh from promoting conspiracy theories about Jewish control of the media, Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour will continue speaking at events hosted by these fringe Islamic outfits, while surrounded by nefarious characters that seek to undermine the American way of life.
She is listed as a featured speaker for the upcoming Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America’s (MAS-ICNA) combined 2017 convention in Chicago, Illinois.
Federal prosecutors have described the Muslim American Society (MAS) as an “overt arm” of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), which also has close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, advocates for a global Islamic caliphate that is ruled by Sharia law.
Sarsour will share a platform with many who share her extremist views.
Imam Suhaib Webb of the Islamic Society of Boston is listed as a featured speaker. Webb, who was once a close friend of deceased al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki, is the leader of a congregation that has drawn over a dozen suspected or convicted terrorists.
Hamza Tzortzis, another panelist at the coming convention, has endorsed the death penalty for leaving Islam and/or insulting Islam. He views homosexuality as a “criminal act” akin to rape and murder. Tzortzis advocates for an Islamic State, using “offensive jihad,” or outright violence, to create a Sharia-compliant society. He has also defended child marriage and wife beating.
Jasser Auda, another confirmed speaker, has several ties to the global Muslim Brotherhood. Like Sarsour, he often complains about how he is being undermined by “Zionist agendas.”
Omar Suleiman, a preacher who remains immensely popular at Muslim Brotherhood-aligned events, has called homosexuality a “disease” and a “repugnant shameless sin,” in advocating for the deaths of homosexuals under Islamic law. Suleiman has hinted that he understands the practice of “honor killing” family members.
Jonathan Brown, who will also speak at the event, made waves earlier this year after delivering a lecture at Georgetown University in which he endorsed slavery and rape as moral Islamic concepts.
This is but a small sample of the individuals whom Sarsour — who continues to be represented as a freedom fighter by countless left-wing politicians, pundits, and activists — will share a stage with.
