That’s Irrelevant’: NYC Dem, pro-Israel activist battle over Linda Sarsour speech

A New York City councilman debated a pro-Israel activist on the legitimacy of Linda Sarsour, a controversial women’s rights activist, speaking at City College.

Sarsour is a Palestinian-American activist and organizer of this year’s women’s march, Martha MacCallum reported.

She has been reported as calling Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu a “waste of human flesh,” saying Sharia law is reasonable, and that Ayaan Hirsi Ali should have her female parts removed because she came out against Sharia.

Zionist Organization of America president Morton Klein called on Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) to intervene in the planned event at City College’s School of Public Health.

Klein said the fact Sarsour praised the anti-Israel Intifada and allegedly supports radical Islamic terrorism should be enough for Cuomo to step in.

Brooklyn Councilman Jumaane Williams (D-Flatbush) said Sarsour was one of the “Time 100” people and accused Klein of mixing religion and politics.
