Abbas Hamideh, an anti-Israel extremist and Hezbollah supporter who is connected to Linda Sarsour, an organizer of the Women’s March and fellow anti-Israel activist, retweeted a tweet from a poster praising recent threats by Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah directed toward the Jewish state; and several commenters on the tweet shared his admiration for the leader and his statements. Hamideh also tweeted that “Nasrallah just put the Israel terrorist entity on notice” with his most recent threats to strike anywhere in the country and to hit Israel’s nuclear reactor.
Israel has called on the United Nation’s Security Council to “‘publicly condemn’ Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah’s recent threat to strike vital infrastructure sites in Israel in a future war … Earlier this week, Nasrallah warned that his organization — an Iran-backed Lebanese Shiite terrorist group — was capable of striking the ammonia storage facilities in Haifa and the nuclear installation in Dimona with missiles.”
Abbas Hamideh is organizing and promoting the upcoming rally in Washington D.C. on March 26th to support (what he calls) Palestine and to protest AIPAC, whose annual policy conference starts the same day.
Will Linda Sarsour condemn her ally’s open support of threats of violence against Israel? Or continue to let such hateful and dangerous incitement go unchecked? Will all of the newfound members of her fan club on the left hold her accountable … or sanction her unconscionable silence with their own?
