One of their own has been outed, and the hard Left/Islamic supremacist alliance is circling the wagons.
The Daily Caller ran an exposé on Women’s March organizer Linda Sarsour’s ties to Hamas, and John Perazzo at FrontPage compiled an extensive report on her agitation in support of the “Palestinian” Jihad and Hamas in particular.
Meanwhile, those attentive to Twitter have noted that Sarsour is an apologist for Sharia oppression:
Multiple links to Hamas? Openly in favor of a system that allows women to be beaten, devalues their testimony and inheritance rights, and treats them essentially like commodities owned by men? That sounds like someone the contemporary Left would love! And they do. As this information has come out about Sarsour, numerous prominent Leftists have rushed to her defense, including Bernie Sanders:
Sarsour’s defenders even include the fashion magazine Elle, which apparently has not considered what the fashion industry would be like were Sharia to prevail in the West. (Or maybe it has; top designers are designing hijabs these days, so it could be that Elle is simply looking at the way the wind is blowing.) Without taking even a nanosecond to investigate whether or not the charges against Sarsour are true, Elle dismisses them as “Islamophobic attacks.” (Could it be because she is such a fashion plate?)
“Women’s March Organizer Linda Sarsour Is Under Attack on Social Media: Less than 48 hours after the worldwide event, one of the women who helped plan it is facing Islamophobic attacks,” by Mattie Kahn, Elle, January 23, 2017:
One of the organizers of the Women’s March is under attack this morning, following reports from conservative news sites like The Daily Caller that accused her of having ties to terrorists. Linda Sarsour, a Muslim-American woman, has been an activist for decades and is widely respected for her dedication to progressive causes.
After helping coordinate one of the most successful marches in history, Islamophobes are viciously attacking @lsarsour #IMarchWithLinda pic.twitter.com/tNuq67nwru

People have already rallied around her this morning, tweeting #IMarchWithLinda to share their support.

These despicable attacks on @lsarsour simply demonstrate that she’s got people shook. #IMarchWithLinda

#IMarchWithLinda because as a white person it is my duty to show up and protect our movement leaders who are threatened.

And Sarsour took to Facebook to ask for “extra prayers” following the harassment.
“The opposition cannot fathom to see a Palestinian Muslim American woman that resonates with the masses,” she wrote. “Someone whose track record is clear and has always stood up for the most marginalized. They have a coordinated attack campaign against me and it’s vicious and ugly. It’s not the first time, but it’s definitely more intense.”
