During MSNBC’s “Melissa Harris-Perry” Saturday, Palestinian-American activist Linda Sarsour brought up the hate crimes against Muslims in America, saying Americans are attacking Muslims, therefore “engaging in terrorism against the innocent community that has nothing to do with” the terror attacks.
Sarsour first noted the diversity of the Muslim community, explaining that one-third of Muslims are black.
“Just listening to the listing of these attacks on individuals and on mosques and understanding the trauma that we’re causing communities and we talk about terror and terrorism, of what we’re doing, is we’re engaging in terrorism against the innocent community that has nothing to do with this.”
“I’m not a person who is usually afraid. Genuinely, 15 years after 9/11, it’s the first time ever I have ever feared for my life, walking in the streets of my city,” Sarsour added.
