The Women’s March was a peaceful protest that netted no arrests, but one of the organizers allegedly has ties a terrorist group.
According to an article in the Daily Caller, Women’s March organizer Linda Sarsour was spotted last year at a convention in Chicago where she posed for pictures with an accused financier of Hamas.
Sarsour is the head of the Arab American Association of New York and an Obama White House “Champion of Change”.
Reportedly, in 2016 she was speaking at the annual convention of the Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America. After her speech, Sarsour posed for pictures with Salah Sarsour, a member of the Islamic Society of Milwaukee and former Hamas operative who was jailed in Israel years ago because of his alleged work for the terrorist group. Although the two share the same last name, it is uncertain if they are related.
Linda Sarsour has denied having any ties with the terror group and told The New York Times that she would not have been appointed an Obama “Champion of Change” if she had.
However, Linda Sarsour has close ties to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim civil rights group, which was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) terrorism case. HLF was found to have funneled money to Hamas, which was designated a terrorist group in the 1990s.
Although she will no longer comment on it today, Sarsour has acknowledged in past interviews that she has cousins serving prison time in Israel because of their work for Hamas.
