Women’s March organizer again attends Farrakhan speech

can’t be in feminism,” she told the magazine in March 2017. “You either stand up for the rights of all women, including Palestinians, or none.”

She is also a proponent of the anti-Semitic boycott, divestment, and sanction campaign, known as BDS. Sarsour has voiced her support for a one-state solution that would create a shared country for Jews and Palestinians — this is considered a formula for the end of a Jewish Israel. And in 2012, she tweeted “Nothing is creepier than Zionism” — the right of the Jewish people to have a homeland – equating it to racism.

Sophie Ellman-Golan, who is Jewish, and the Women’s March deputy head of communications, wrote in The Forward last August that she, Mallory, Sarsour, and Perez “do not always agree on every single issue or feel the same way about every single individual.”

She continued: “It is painful for me to engage when people like Louis Farrakhan perpetuate the same narrative of ‘satanic global Jewry’ that Nazis do…. But we trust and respect each other — and we have faith in our shared dedication to justice and liberation.”

Mallory, who was arrested on Tuesday, 27 February, while protesting about immigration in front of House Speaker Paul Ryan’s office, did not comment on attending the rally in Chicago. A spokeswoman for The Women’s March was also unavailable when asked about the group’s links to Farrakhan.

“Maybe I’ll be accused of siding with the alt-right or tarred as Islamophobic. But what I stand against is embracing terrorists, disdaining independent feminist voices, hating on democracies and celebrating dictatorships,” New York Times editor Bari Weiss wrote in August of last year, critiquing the support Mallory and Sarsour give to extremists. “If that puts me beyond the pale of the progressive feminist movement in America right now, so be it,” she concluded.

In a critique of Linda Sarsour, one of the leaders of the march, Julie Lenarz observed in The Tower, “Linda Sarsour is not a feminist. She supports a culture that is forcing millions of women into religious slavery. She is a false apostle selling her regressive views to a blinded liberal audience.”
