Woman's March Leader SHOCKS With Anti-Semitic Demand
The Algemeiner reported that Sarsour shamed Muslims for not being more politically active and said that if Muslims are not promoting the Palestinian cause then they are part of the problem, saying, "You as an American Muslim are complicit in the occupation of Palestinians, in the murder of Palestinian protesters."
"So when we start debating in the Muslim community about Palestine, it tells me a lot about you and about the type of faith that you have in your heart," Sarsour continued. "If you’re on the side of the oppressor, or you’re defending the oppressor, or you’re actually trying to humanize the oppressor, then that’s a problem sisters and brothers, and we got to be able to say: 'That is not the position of the Muslim American community.'"
Sarsour, who has a long history of anti-Semitism, received a ringing endorsement from Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez this week after Sarsour was arrested for disrupting Judge Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation hearing.
Our future is a shared responsibility.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@Ocasio2018) September 5, 2018
This woman putting it all on the line for healthcare, women & LGBT+ rights is @lsarsour.
The far right constantly maligns her w/ false attacks + threats of violence.
Yet here she is, as always, fighting for everything our flag represents. https://t.co/QR4rYnclLt
Ocasio-Cortez's Sarsour endorsement shouldn't come as a surprise given their similar worldviews.
