Linda Sarsour never tires of emphasizing how “unapologetically Muslim” she is. I’m not entirely sure what that means, but perhaps she gave a useful example when she recently visited the Temple Mount.

Sarsour posted a short clip showing the Dome of the Rock to her Instagram account with the text: “God is GREAT all the time. The beautiful Dome of the Rock in #Palestine. #Jerusalem”



For most Muslim tourists, I would consider this an unremarkable post. After all, Muslims are indoctrinated to believe that the Dome of the Rock is part of the “Al Aqsa mosque compound,” which they are told to consider as Islam’s “third holiest site.” The fact that it is Judaism’s holiest site is always adamantly denied or dismissed as a fabricated idea. At the same time, Palestinian and other Arab Muslim media never tire to churn out vicious libels about Jewish attacks on the site, and Jews are accused of falsely claiming that the Islamic buildings were erected on the ruins of their ancient temple, while every good Muslim knows that it was the biblical Adam or his son, or Abraham and his son Isaac, who built the Al Aqsa mosque.

I’m sorry if the idea of biblical figures building a mosque long before Muhammad introduced Islam sounds a bit crazy, but this is what you can learn from Linda Sarsour’s dear friend Imam Omar Suleiman – who was recently listed by CNN (where he also has published op-eds) as one of 25 Influential American Muslims (needless to say, Linda Sarsour is also included in the list).
Sarsour has said that Suleiman makes her “more proud to be a Muslim and a Palestinian,” and perhaps she fully shares his Temple denial and his vicious anti-Jewish theological views.
Her recent Instagram post is certainly remarkable for someone who claims to be not only “progressive,” but who also wants to be considered as a credible opponent of antisemitism.
Sarsour is surely fully aware that the Temple Mount is Judaism’s holiest site, but that – due to constant threats of Muslim violence – Jews are banned from praying anywhere on the huge platform, which measures about 150,000 square meters (37 acres). And as Sarsour surely also knows, the fanatically imposed Muslim supremacy restricts the access of all non-Muslims, including Christians for whom the site has significance in their faith.

So when Sarsour stands in front of the Dome of the Rock and says “God is GREAT all the time”, she is triumphantly joining the Muslim fanatics who make sure that only Muslims are allowed to do anything that can be construed as worship on the Temple Mount. Any Jew or Christian who would stand in front of the Dome of the Rock and would declare “God is GREAT all the time” would risk being attacked by a Muslim mob and/or being swiftly arrested by police.

That’s clearly perfectly fine with the “unapologetically Muslim” Linda Sarsour, who for good measure places the Dome of the Rock in “#Palestine”. With this she makes clear that the building that was erected on the orders of a Muslim emperor to obliterate the ruins of the Jewish Temple and prevent its rebuilding for all time should indeed continue to serve as “a symbol of the permanent supremacy and governance of Islam and the Muslims over the … Noble Sanctuary or al-Haram al-Sharif.”

I guess if you’re as “unapologetically Muslim” as Linda Sarsour, Islamic imperialism remains a most wonderful thing that – unlike all other imperialist regimes – should still be celebrated in the 21st century.

Both Linda Sarsour and Omar Suleiman are heavily promoted in the media as modern Muslims who have nothing in common with Islamist fanatics. If you don’t agree, both Sarsour and Suleiman and the media will denounce you as “Islamophobic.” But the truth is that any Muslim who is unwilling to acknowledge the historic Jewish connection to the Temple Mount and unwilling to accept that Jews have the right to visit freely and pray somewhere at the site has something very fundamental in common with Islamist fanatics.
