In 2017:
Over 130 leaders of Jewish organizations signed a public letter today in solidarity with Muslim American leader Linda Sarsour — and have raised over $11,000 in a day towards her security from threats of violence.
 In addition to the 130 signers to the petition in her defense, Jewish social justice group Bend the Arc invited their supporters to donate towards her security expenses — raising $11,000 in just under a day.
Bend the Arc raised its money on Generosity.com whose page is no longer available, but a similar and possibly identical campaign can be seen at Indiegogo.

Linda has had to hire private security just to appear in public and keep her family safe, at great personal cost.
That’s why Bend the Arc Jewish Action is working to raise $10,000 so Linda will have all the resources she needs to maintain security for herself and her family.

 Linda thanked her Jewish supporters:

My family and I are grateful beyond words. You, my Jewish sisters and brothers embody the Judaism I have come to know and love, a faith of compassion, justice and a deep commitment to collective liberation. We are not always going to agree on issues but you can always count on me to be a fierce advocate against anti-semitism because harm to your faith is harm to mine. I am taking all the precautions I can to stay safe and knowing that you are a part of that warms my heart and is an indescribable and remarkable feeling.
A year and a half later, we know that Sarsour and her friends at Women's March hire the Nation of Islam for security. Mercy Morganfield, a DC Women's March organizer, said "They employ The Nation of Islam as security detail."

From the Bend the Arc fundraiser letter, it seems that the money went to Sarsour directly to defray her costs of "private security" - money that from all indications goes to Nation of Islam.

Which means that leftist Jews may have helped fund an antisemitic hate group out of "solidarity" with someone who refused to distance herself from its leader Louis Farrakhan.



(On a personal note, it definitely rankles that Jewish leftists can raise $11,000 from Jews in a day to protect someone who defames Israel and Jews when groups and websites like this one and Israellycool who spend countless hours actually defending Jews and Israel only raise a small fraction of that amount when we ask for money.)



We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 14 years and 30,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
