The Women’s March is appalled by modern-day anti-Semitism, just not the anti-Semitism coming from the group’s most widely-known organizer and assistant treasurer Linda Sarsour.
How very convenient.
On Monday, the left-wing feminist group posted an article from Refinery addressing the anti-Semitism at this past weekend’s Charlottesville, Virginia rally, where neo-Nazis promoting their racist views and protesting the removal of Confederate statues clashed with violent “anti-fascist” group, Antifa. Tragically, a 32-year-old woman was murdered when a man with white supremacist ties mowed down protesters in his vehicle; two police officers manning the event also lost their lives when their helicopter crashed.
“We can’t talk about #Charlottesville without also talking about anti-semitism. It is real and it is all around,” captioned the organization.
Yeah, it’s hard to look at this post as anything other than exploitation of a tragedy. The Women’s March doesn’t actually care about anti-Semitism. If they did, they would not have anti-Semitic Linda Sarsour as the most prominent face of their organization.
Here’s Sarsour embracing Rasmea Odeh, a woman who happens to be facing a lifetime prison sentence back in Israel for her involvement in a terror plot in Jerusalem at the British consulate and a fatal bombing at a Jerusalem grocery store.
The Women’s March organizer also has a history of Jew-hatred, as noted by Daily Wire’s Aaron Bandler:
Sarsour’s hate for Israel has even caused her to tweet out a photo of a Palestinian child preparing to stone Israel Defense Forces with the caption “The definition of courage. #Palestine.”
Additionally, Sarsour has called Zionism “creepy” and stated that it’s not compatible with feminism.
“It just doesn’t make any sense for someone to say, ‘Is there room for people who support the state of Israel and do not criticize it in the movement?'” Sarsour told The Nation. “There can’t be in feminism. You either stand up for the rights of all women, including Palestinians, or none. There’s just no way around it.”
Moreover, the “feminist” activist has “openly stated that there shouldn’t be a two-state solution due to Israel’s building of settlements in Judea and Samaria. Instead, she thinks that Israel should just cease to exist,” notes Bandler.
“My hope is that it will be one state, one man one vote, that everyone is treated equally,” Sarsour told Haaretz. “Then you can say that part of the world is a true democracy.”
In the perverse mind of Sarsour, her hope is that a one-state solution would turn Israel into a Palestinian state because the Palestinian voters would outnumber Israeli voters. Of course, this would not come to fruition, as “Jews outnumber Palestinian Arabs outside of the Gaza Strip by a factor of two-to-one, and Jews now have the equivalent birth rate of Palestinian Arabs, and will soon have a higher birth rate,” according to Shapiro, but the fact that her goal is for the Jewish state to be replaced by a Palestinian state shows her extremism on the issue.
Perhaps the Women’s March should find a mirror, look into it, rid themselves of anti-Semitism, and then, possibly, we will believe them when pretend to stand against Jew-hatred.
