It’s no secret that most of the news media are quick to inform Americans about every minim detail about President Donald Trump, especially if it throws fuel on the fire of anti-Trumpism. However, those same members of the news media are slow — snail-like slow — to inform Americans that the leaders of last week’s International Women’s Day included two high-profile Sharia-law loving Islamists, one of whom was a convicted Palestinian bomber.
Linda Sarsour, one of the main organizers of last month’s Women’s March on Washington and a pro-sharia law Islamic activist, was arrested by police officers with the NYPD at an event held in Manhattan last week as part of International Women’s Day, according to the conservative think-tank The Clarion Project.
Sarsour, a Muslim-American who claims to be Palestinian, has said repeatedly that she believes the U.S.A. is a nation built on the values of genocide and slavery. She’s also stated that “nothing is creepier than Zionism.” Wearing her Burqa, she spoke at the Women’s March in New York last month in defiance of the new President of the United States, Donald J. Trump.
Sarsour was arrested and charged with disorderly conducting when she blocked traffic along with other protesters outside the Trump International Hotel in New York City. She had failed to heed the warnings of police officers assigned to the security detail and so she was arrested for a violation, which is punishable by less than 30-days in jail and/or a fine.
Pictures show Sarsour, currently the executive director of the Arab American Association of New York, being handcuffed and taken into custody, according to Clarion’s Meira Svirsky.
Strangely, out of all of the feminist leaders in New York and the United States, the news media chose Sarsour to be the face of the women’s protests against Donald Trump beginning the day after the current U.S. president’s inauguration. However, according to laws she supports, she is anti-abortion, anti-LGBTQ, and differs on other issues from American feminists.
“This is the predicament that progressives find themselves: feminist leaders who espouse the patriarchal Muslim traditions,” said former New York police officer Iris Aquino. “This is just another example of liberalism’s contradictions,” she added.
According to the Clarion Project’s Meira Svirsky, Sarsour’s “credentials” include:
- Supporter of Sharia law. Sarsour has tweeted:
“Sharia law is reasonable and [sic] once u read into the details it makes a lot of sense. People just know the basics.”
“Sharia law is misunderstood & has been pushed as some evil Muslim agenda.”
“If you are still paying interest than Sharia Law hasn’t taken over America. #justsaying.”
“You’ll know when you’re living under Sharia Law if suddenly all your loans & credit cards become interest free. Sound nice, doesn’t it?”
- Belittling the lack of women’s rights in Saudi Arabia. Sarsour tweeted:
“10 weeks of PAID maternity leave in Saudi Arabia. Yes PAID. [sic] And ur worrying about women driving. Puts us to shame.”
- Activist in campaign to discredit Clarion Project’s film Honor Diaries, which showcases the struggle of nine women’s-rights activists, some Muslim some not, as they campaign against honor violence and female genital mutilation.
- Supporter of the Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) anti-Israel movement and supporter of groups such as Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other groups.
Her friend — yet another prominent Islamic activist — calling for a strike by women this week was Rasmea Yousef Odeh, a convicted Palestinian terrorist involved in fatal bombings in Israel.
Odeh immigrated to the U.S. after being released from an Israeli prison in a prisoner exchange, omitting on her immigration papers her terror conviction. Her deportation case is currently on appeal and so she is still out on the streets of New York and Washington, D.C.
Odeh had been convicted in Israel in 1970 for being involved in bombings that left several Israelis dead or maimed. She served only 10 years in prison before she was turned over to Islamists as part of a prisoner exchange in 1980.
One of the co-authors of what’s called The Militant Manifesto, she was behind last month’s nationwide event. Odeh moved to the U.S. by omitting her criminal history from her immigration papers. She then served as the associate director of the Arab American Action Network in Chicago. Odeh is a perfect example of someone who wasn’t vetted properly before gaining entrance to the U.S. She should be the poster child for additional immigration screening procedures especially from nations harboring Islamic terrorist groups as was proposed by President Trump.
She later worked as an ObamaCare navigator on the federal payroll, despite being a convicted member of a radical Islamic terrorist organization and the American citizens suffering through a time of high-unemployment.
“One of my contacts in [Washington] D.C. told me she was selected by the Obama administration just because of her Islamist background and her anti-America sentiment,” said former U.S. Marine and NYPD police officer Michael Snopes.
