[Ikhras Note: With Linda Sarsour’s emergence as a celebrity activist her delusional ambitions outgrew local politics. She abandoned her planned run for the New York City Council and looked for a compliant patsy, which she found in a local Palestinian Lutheran Pastor. The Ikhras investigative unit was sent to New York to look into the campaign, background, history and politics of Sarsour’s hand-picked puppet, Reverend Khader El-Yateem. The following is an Ikhras special report.]
After her canonization and emergence as a celebrity activist, Linda Sarsour decided to abandon her plan to run for New York City Council. Her narcissism and ambitions outgrew local politics. As she explains to friends and relatives, she’s on her way to becoming the Muslim Oprah Winfrey. This has always been her dream. Write a book, get her own a talk-show. Fame. Fortune. Magazine covers. We think you get the idea.
At the same time, Linda is also aware that in her own backyard of Bayridge, Brooklyn (she grew up in neighboring Sunset Park) she is toxic and radioactive. So, instead of running for a seat on the New York City Council as was originally planned and often rumored, she hand-picked a local Palestinian Lutheran pastor to be her front man. Everybody knows Khader El-Yateem is Linda Sarsour’s puppet though it is a tad bit confusing because most people seem to assume that Mr. El-Yateem, or “The Reverend” as he is often called, is a Muslim-American even though he is a Christian who never seems to remove his clergy collar. You’re expected to notice the collar and assume he is a pious man worthy of respect. The decision by the 6′ 3” patsy to run just happened to coincide with Sarsour’s announcement that she is resigning from the government-funded Arab-American Association to pursue politics on a national level.
