Can You Be a Zionist Feminist? Pro-Sharia Linda Sarsour Says No

49

Sarsour says: “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?’ 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.”

Remember: the woman saying this is an open supporter of sharia. She claims that “Palestinian” women are being oppressed by Israel, but doesn’t have a word to say about the genuine oppression that Muslim women suffer because of sharia, which sanctions wife-beating, allows for polygamy, and opens the door to female genital mutilation and honor killing. That’s oppression. But Sarsour, as the new leader of the feminist movement, is never going to say a word about that.

The media adores the Islamic supremacist bigot and rabid anti-Semite, Linda Sarsour, who wields her religion like a club. The Times did a puff piece on this annihilationist some time ago — what they’re puffing is anyone’s guess.

The left are notoriously anti-semitic as are the majority of practicing Muslims. So maybe Sarsour is on to something here.

I debated this hatemonger here:

Robert Spencer wrote, “Linda Sarsour is an energetic purveyor of the ‘Islamophobia’ myth, and has hysterically claimed that ‘Muslim kids’ are being ‘executed’ in the United States. She was instrumental in prevailing upon de Blasio to end legal and necessary surveillance in Muslim communities in New York. 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. She 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. She is also an enthusiastic supporter of the ‘Palestinian’ jihad against Israel. Given the general support for that jihad among Leftists, and the hard-Left tilt of the de Blasio regime in New York, it is not surprising that her hate-filled endeavors are taxpayer funded. But it is scandalous nonetheless: a grim sign of the times.”

“Can You Be a Zionist Feminist? Linda Sarsour Says No,” by Collier Meyerson, The Nation, March 13, 2017:

Since Donald Trump was elected to the presidency, millions of women across the country have become active in a newly resurgent feminist movement. But, like in all feminist movements before it, tensions between groups of women are bubbling to the surface. The latest fissure making its way into public consciousness is about the role of Zionism in feminism, raised last week by Bustle politics editor, Emily Shire, in a New York Times op-ed.

The International Women’s Strike, an international day of action “by and for women who have been marginalized and silenced,” took an anti-colonial, anti-imperialist position, calling for the destruction of walls “from Mexico to Palestine.” Organizers of the strike wrote in its platform that the decolonization of Palestine is “the beating heart of this new feminist movement.” The day before the strike, Shire, who identifies as a Zionist, expressed her dismay over the platform’s stance on Israel and wrote that she felt like she was being forced to “sacrifice” her Zionism for the sake of her feminism.

In the days after its publication, Shire’s piece has reignited a debate among feminists about the tenets of the movement. I spoke with Linda Sarsour, a Palestinian-American feminist activist, who disagrees with Shire’s claim that feminist actions shouldn’t take a hard line on Israel. Sarsour is one of the architects of the January 21 Women’s March, the biggest national demonstration in history, and also helped organize “A Day without a Woman,” an action that took place in solidarity with the International Women’s Strike.

The following conversation has been edited for length and clarity.

In her op-ed, Emily Shire asks, “why should criticism of Israel be key to feminism in 2017?” I think she was being a bit flip there, but I’d love if you can answer her question in earnest.

I was quite surprised and disturbed by her piece. When you talk about feminism you’re talking about the rights of all women and their families to live in dignity, peace, and security. It’s about giving women access to health care and other basic rights. And Israel is a country that continues to occupy territories in Palestine, has people under siege at checkpoints—we have women who have babies on checkpoints because they’re not able to get to hospitals [in time]. 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?” 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….

  • shirley versace

    is it possible that sharia is a form of oppression to women and that Zionism is also a form of oppression to some people (including there women folk) ?

    just posing the question… not claiming to have an answer

    • Joe Schmoe

      Well then any form of patriotism or nationalism can be considered anti-women

      • shirley versace

        not quite…

        • Dorrie

          Yes. QUITE!

    • Amanda Jones

      Zionism means that Jews should have their own nation, just like Italians should have their own nation and just like the Chinese should have their own nation. What’s wrong with having your own nation? Is it a sin for a group of people to have their own nation? Can you imagine if Africans were vilified for having their own country? How can that be oppressive?

      • shirley versace

        no quibble with having one’s own nation… the question is ‘though…do difficulties emerge when said nation confiscates land and thereby treads on the rights of others
        The thing that we Westerners need to worry about is that as things stand, we will not have our own nations in Europe for long… France will be majority muslim by end of this century…So French people may not have their own nation… same for Sweden , UK and Germany – just something to think about. Likewise USA will be minority white soon too…

        • Dorrie

          Zionists are people who love Israel. PERIOD. Oppression? How can anyone be oppressed whose eye is on the Lord?! You seem VERY confused, little shirley!

          • shirley versace

            where to begin… ok… firstly, Zionists are people who love the ‘State of Israel’, as opposed to “Israel” which is a Biblical concept, somehow akin to the ‘City of God’ in Christian theology. That may strike you as a subtle distinction but I think you will find, if you look into it, that it is a crucial one. Secondly, while that is all true and well and good with it, there is more to Zionism than just that. There is as it were, a ‘foreign policy’ dimension as well as the better known ‘domestic policy’ dimension to Zionism – perhaps regarding the activities of George Soros would help to give you a clue as to what the foreign policy dimension looks like… and yes, Soros, contrary to many a confused protestation, is in fact a significant a Zionist agent, although he is under a couple of layers of camouflage, so to speak, and this explains his antics and posturing when it comes to the State of Israel – but ‘me thinks the gentleman doth protest too much’ – if I can misquote Shakespeare

          • Dorrie

            shirley, the “State of Israel” wouldn’t EXIST if it hadn’t been for the fact that Yahweh allowed it and is bringing back His people from all over the world! Zionism is a VERY good thing! :)

            What insane whacko do you listen to?! Israel is God’s Land and the Jews are His chosen people. You can’t change that, but you can sure spread hate, can’t you!

            Soros has nothing to do with Israel or Zionism. In fact, he is a self-loathing atheist Jew who is hell-bound.

          • shirley versace

            well, if you actually believe all of what you wrote…then I guess there isn’t much I can add. Read Arthur Koestler’s 13th tribe if you have any interest in understanding modern judaism

          • Dorrie

            Thanks, but I prefer to continue reading and studying God’s Word. Will pray for you.

    • Pray Hard

      I think you’re missing the entire point.

    • Shirley is a Dumb Dumb

      Shirley’s IQ is room temperature.

    • pipo

      Some women under Jewish law are also not better off. In case of divorce (because the husband is an assh*le) it can take a long time a rabbi will dissolve the marriage. But stoning is not in practice. So said by a born Jew but today Christian.

    • Duchess of Pork

      Oh but I would like to hear your answer. You are not usually so modest.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Who cares what that prayer mat from a muslim brothel has to say. When she opens her mouth, it is not to talk.

    • Rob Porter

      If you wish to gauge how sick America’s feminists have become, just consider how they allow a vile liar and utterer of nonsense like Linda Sarsour to lead them. The fact that she can freely walk around without fear of assassination while Pamela cannot, speaks volumes about the state of America and the West. Yes, we say we are more civilized – in fact civilized where Islam and its followers are not – but they are waging war and in fear of our retaliation they should be living in fear of a bullet to the head.

  • Linda is devout muslim and muslim brotherhood member and Sympathizer, she is Anti-Christian and Jewish People!!

    • Linda Sarsour is a Fat Cow

      Linda is a terrorist sympathizer and bigot. Linda is a fat stinking pig.

      • pipo

        She is a muzzrat whore and she has leg over with the mayor of NYC.

  • Joe Schmoe

    Women have full civil rights in Israel but Islam is profeminism, lol That evil lying bitch

        Done, love this. It says it all. Thank you for it., Joe Schmoe.

        • Joe Schmoe

          thanks spread it

  • Pray Hard

    First thing I’d do is break that finger. Go to Hell, Linda Sarsour.

  • pipo

    I do not know why but I would like to have a leg over with her and she shouts pallah is great.

  • Linda Sour Sucks Di_ks!

    I don’t give a sh_t what Linda Sour an anti-Semitic piece of sh_t says.

  • Linda Sarsour Supports Terror

    Not all Palestinian women are good as a matter of fact Dalal Mughrabi a member of Fatah was responsible for directing the coastal road massacre in which 38 Israelis, including 13 children were killed and 72 were wounded on March 11, 1978.

    Dalal Mughrabi became among Palestinians a heroine and martyr, memorialized in the names of a public square, a computer centre and a soccer tournament as well as a summer camp.

    There’s something especially ugly about celebrating Dalal Mughrabi’s achievement. She killed at random. She willingly killed Israelis of every kind, and perhaps a few tourists who got in her way.

    Official Palestine stands behind erratic indiscriminate homicide and so does Linda Sarsour.

    Many of those who admire the Palestinians from a distance must imagine them as likable victims, people just campaigning for the rights they believe they deserve. But the true story is much more complicated.

  • Linda Sarsour is a Pig

    Zionism is a movement for (originally) the re-establishment and (now) the development and protection of a Jewish nation in what is now Israel. It was established as a political organization in 1897 under Theodor Herzl, and was later led by Chaim Weizmann.

    56 Islamic countries one little Jewish state and this monster Linda Sarsour cannot stop obsessing over Israel. She is jealous of Israel’s contributions to the world of medicine, science, technology, agriculture, arts etc.

    The Palestinians contribution death & destruction.

  • Jimmy Crackorn

    take them all out back and beat them.. that will teach them a lesson.. silly female infidels..

  • Muzzrat Linda Sarour

    Her mannish bushy eyebrows are neatly trimmed for a Muzzrat. Maybe she is taking lessons from Anal Looney.

    Didn’t her terrorist teachers tell her it is rude to point?

  • disqus_9Yn3o9kWjq

    Sarsourpus hates women who are not supporters or advocates of muslim/sharia law and women who are Christian or Jewish.
    We who are advocates for women’s rights and equality are allowing our movement to be ambushed and used by Sarsour and her pro- muslim religious/politicsl agenda.
    She has already hijacked many of our protests and effectively diluted our causes for her own self-interests.
    Should we really permit her to position herself as our spokesperson? Should we allow her and her associates to lead our marches arm and arm? Should she be permitted to steal our opportunities for legitimate news coverage ? Is our cause really about furthering and supporting her hateful anti-Jewish women, anti-Christian women agenda?
    I personally think we’ll accomplish much more without her and her hateful prejudices. She is not one of us in spirit. She does not speak for us. She is a negative force to our cause.

    Certainly sharia law and it’s suppressive laws and customs are not representative of our women’s freedom and rights. Shall we be forced to wear habibs as women are in most muslim nations? Should we succumb to genital mutilation? Should we be stoned, whipped, doused with acid and killed at the whim of an accusing husband ? Shall we remain confined to our homes at all times unless escorted by a man? Do you think her sharia law and muslim religion permits pro-choice? These are just a few of the rules Sarsour whould have us surrender too. She is NOT our friend. She does NOT represent women’s rights. She is a paid imposter who is permitted by her muslim superiors to temporarily break their own rules and codes in order to recruit sympathizers under the guise of sisterhood.

    Please join me in speaking out against this she-wolf and her agenda.

    THINK ! EDUCATE ! SOUND THE ALARM !
    Sarsour is not a feminist. She is an opportunistic mercenary well-compensated to steal and influence our movement!

  • AlgorithmicAnalyst

    I think they call it “intersectional victimology”. Uniting anyone who claims to be a victim under the same banner, in order to create a critical mass of useful idiots sufficient to destroy civilization.

  • Duchess of Pork

    No Ms Sarsour, when you’re talking about feminism you’re talking human rights. When Islam considers a woman’s status in law to be equal to a male’s then come talk to me about peace, dignity and security. Until then you have no moral authority to speak on any feminist issue.

  • KimWilde

    After viewing videos of what moslums do to our pets ( dogs & cats) I know that they are all mentally deficient. After watching these I have no use for them anywhere in America. DEPORT THEM ALL.

  • santashandler

    Linda Soursewer is nothing more than an absolute hate-filled bitch. She probably has to laugh at the idiots who follow her dead end idealogy. Seems that if she is so hell bent on spewing her hate, she should be doing it in a friendly country, like Afghanistan and not here in the U.S.

  • Janet

    Feminists get on my nerves big time! They think they speak for all women but nothing could be further from the truth. They keep whining about the same old BS year after year. What is it that they want? I think they just like hearing themselves talk. No wonder a lot of men don’t take them seriously. They never shut up!

  • Kim Bruce

    The devil takes the form of a woman…a Muslim woman.

  • Ichabod Crain

    Watching that video, I was just amazed at how well Pamela could think on her feet. I don’t think she could have stated her position better if she had all day to write an essay on it. Every single word forming a perfect and coherent argument. She was brilliant. In relation, Sarsour, who is supposedly a lawyer, came across as mundane, always with an ugly self-righteous smirk on her face. How can this women bill herself as a champion of women’s rights while advocating for Sharia and ignoring the misogyny of Islam? The only woman Sarsour is concerned about is herself. I was about to add, that perhaps she is an advocate for Palestinian women, but she is doing nothing for them by deflecting the source of their problems as being the “Israeli occupation” when it is actually the tyranny of Islam.

    • solange9

      She works for the Muslim Brotherhood, for Nazi, George Soros, and is in league with the Clintons as well as the PA. She has insinuated the “Palestinian” cause into every opportunity in order to try and win more hearts and minds for her cause, something about which those who fall for it are painfully unaware.

  • Wayne Ville … a Deplorable

    Well, we DO know that you cannot be a muslim feminist…..at least not without permission.

    • Robert Batchelor

      And survive.

  • freepetta

    We should deport Linda Sarsour to Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Libya etc etc etc and see how much she enjoys her Sharia there. The woman is a liar and phony organizing protests for women’s rights. She’s a freaking joke and a walking hypocrite for women’s rights.

    Good job Pamela you wiped the floor with that anti-Semitic POS!!!

  • Grant Woodside

    Polygamy is outlawed in Canada
    There have been prosecutions recently
    As is child marriage to old men
    Some sort of Mormon Cult I think it was
    What I fail to understand is why
    Politicians fail to understand
    Islam is a Cult
    We have “hate crimes” in Canada
    Yet it seems some Muslims can say whatever they wish
    With no fear of legal action
    Caucasian people can be ridiculed by any and all
    Called racist and supremacist
    With no fear of legal action
    The most peaceful countries in the world
    I think would be classified as “Caucasian”
    All we ask I think is, when you come to our countries
    Please leave your hatred and racism
    In the place from whence you came
    That is very little to ask of you all

  • Fred

    Linda Sarsour is a pos C U Next Tuesday that deserves a bullet to the head

  • solange9

    She knows that this is a load. She knows what the sharia that she supports truly is and, so, is trying to deflect attention from that truth. She is hoping that she and her hypocrisy will not be discovered or exposed. What she is saying here is also tied in with her abject antisemitism. She is practicing taqiyya to persuade the sleeping sheeple to march into the trap that is Islam, Islam, making entire cultures mentally ill for centuries. We must not let it do the same to ours.

  • solange9

    My baser side just wants to slap her smug face. It’s infuriating and makes me want to freak out to think that she is fooling even one person. Perhaps that person also needs a slap, just to wake them up, you know. smh

  • Bacchus

    Linda Sarsour The truth hurts dont it????? the koran calls for the decapitation of ALL non moslems. The koran calls for the oppression and extortion of remaining non moslems. The koran calls Jesus (Yeshuah) a liar, “Jesus who never sinned neither was their any deception in His mouth” The truth is that the koran is the book of SATAN it is the anti bible. Moslems hate Jews; Christians and Jesus and you dont have the moral decency to tell the TRUTH.
