Editor’s Note: This is Part V of an ongoing series by Robert Spencer highlighting human rights hypocrisy and fraudulent peace activists. For Part I, see “The Hypocrisy of the ‘Islamophobia’ Scam,” for Part II, see “The Hypocrisy of the Fatwa Against Terrorism,”  for Part III “The Hypocrisy of the Feminist Response to Islam’s Oppression of Women,” for Part IV see last week’s “The Hypocrisy of the Western Christian Response to Muslim Persecution of Christians.”

Leftists and Islamic supremacists took to Twitter on Saturday morning to take their last shots at Ariel Sharon.

New York-based Linda Sarsour tweeted piously: “I don’t celebrate death of anyone. Sharon will meet his Creator and answer to massacres and destruction committed by him. He was a criminal.” Sarsour is a rabidly antisemitic Islamic supremacist who has said that “nothing is creepier than Zionism” and has equated it with “racism.” She is also a frequent visitor to the Obama White House, and has claimed that the jihad underwear bomber was a CIA agent – part of what she claims is a U.S. war against Islam.

Sarsour is a practiced exploiter of the “hate” smear against foes of jihad terror and Islamic supremacism, and has never apologized for using the Islamic honor murder of Shaima Alawadi to spread lies about the prevalence of hate crimes against Muslims in America. Although she decries “hate,” she is venomously hateful herself – as is clear in this self-righteous, self-pitying, foul-mouthed, hate-filled and utterly off-putting performance at a “comedy show,” which reveals that the preening preachers of the “Islamophobia” myth are the real haters. Her lurid tweet envisioning Sharon being damned to hell by a vengeful Allah showed it yet again.

Sarsour wasn’t alone. Others focused on Sharon’s alleged “war crimes.” Hard-Left journalist Glenn Greenwald, hero of the Snowden scandal, pointed out helpfully:

The BBC obit gives a surprisingly clear account of Ariel Sharon’s decades of savagery and war criminality http://t.co/wpLOFrQWJP

DHS Adviser Mohamed Elibiary, who once spoke at a conference honoring the Ayatollah Khomeini, chimed in:

Woke up today 2rpt Aerial Sharon has died. As young teen I did media interview @ Dallas protest against Sharon over Sabra & Shatila. #Killer

Leftist cartoonist Carlos Latuff drew a cartoon of Sharon walking down a stairway into hell, weighed down by leg iron balls labeled “Sabra,” “Shatila,” “Qibya,” and “Jenin,” while a righteous figure clad all in white except for a Palestinian flag over his chest looked on.

There's only one thing that anti-semites hate more than a Jew who is a victim: a Jew who fights back. That's what Ariel Sharon was par excellence.

If the dreamed-of caliphate becomes reality, the left will find out what sucking up to Muslims has brought them. It won't be pretty, but I hope I would live long enough to witness what is coming to them for their treason against humanity.

I also think there's a lot of naked fear. Oh, they'll do the elephant dung Mother of God, but they'd never do the elephant dung Mohammed. I've made a number of "artistes" go grey with that suggestion....

Let them say what they want. The truth is that Israel is at peace (considering the circumstances) and the enemies of Israel are killing each other, massacring innocents, and being crybabies as usual. I wish we had a leader of [what it used to be] the free world with 1% of the cojones this good man had in his life... He served his country well, protecting the weak against those who are really bent on committing genocide and make no secret about it. Best to you, old warrior, and God be with you.

In my opinion, the only thing Sharon failed at while he was in Lebanon was not allowing the IDF guy who had Arafat in his gun sight to pull the trigger.

There is no chance whatsoever the Pals will ever become a decent and peaceful country. None.

It's funny how appropriate it is.

Don't be too hard on Sarsour. She mis-typed and what she meant to say was, "

I don't celebrate death of anyone. Arafat will meet his Creator and answer to massacres and destruction committed by him. He was a criminal.

Lebanese Christians slaughtered Palestinian Muslems, and they blame the Jews...

That is exactly right: Sharon was held "indirectly responsible" by merely being there. The group doing the slaughter was cleared (They were, after all, Arabs, which is only one step down from being an Arab Muslim).

Leftists should be grateful to Sharon. He succeeded in creating an independent Palestinian state in Gaza.

Funny how people just will not stop hating successful Jews. Damn if I know where this comes from, but it's like playing whack-a-mole. It just won't go away. It's even worse when the successful Jew is proud of being Jewish, or worst yet, a Zionist.

Within political correctness, it is ignoble to win a war.
