Chapter 12 Love Letter
“In June of 2009 the New York City Council passed a resolution telling the Department of Education to include two major Muslim holidays. Even though fifty city council members voted and thought that this was the right thing to do, Mayor Bloomberg said no way.
And mayor Bloomberg is...
But by January 2006, the environment for Muslim children had become outright hostile. Bullying was rampant,
Victim.
the state exam being scheduled on Eid was just one more message to our youth that they simply didn’t matter, and I wanted them to know that they did.
Muslims had previously been a relatively small percent of NYC school children but there had been huge immigration since 911 into the country that Sarsour always complains about from countries that Sarsour never complains about. She should ask herself why.
Every couple of weeks we’d hear about another hate crime against Muslims, or another case of our children being profiled, or, heaven forbid, a terrorist attack on the other side of the world, which somehow always left Americans fearfully convinced that the next 9/11 was hours away.
Again, her takeaway on Muslim terrorist attacks is feeling that Muslims in the US are the victims.
We’d asked Imam Talib Abdur Rashid, a respected African American
A defender of Terrorist supporters. Sarsour shows a lack of concern for the bad qualities of fellow advocates of Muslim rights.

Chapter 13 Rakers and Spies

Sarsour spends Chapter 13 describing how she resisted US efforts to prevent Muslim related terrorist attacks in the US.
Osama Eldawoody was such an informant—if that was even his name.
That was his name.
He eventually befriended a twenty-two-year-old Pakistani American named Shahawar Matin Siraj, who worked in a bookstore next door to the Islamic Society of Bay Ridge. Siraj was known in the community to be intellectually and emotionally challenged, with a tested IQ in the seventies. Eldawoody told the young man that he belonged to a terrorist organization back in his country, and that he had the resources to build a bomb. He proposed that they detonate the explosive in New York City’s Thirty-Fourth Street subway station in Herald Square, one of the city’s busiest shopping and commercial centers. Over a period of months, Eldawoody enrolled Siraj in this plan,
The defense was entrapment and not mental ability.
