Linda Sarsour, the Brooklyn Muslim, who claims to be a women’s activist, may have just fallen off the pedestal so many women placed her on. This past week, the Daily Caller reported they had received a detailed account of a sexual harassment/abuse case from a former employee of Sarsours, alleging Sarsour covered for the Muslim man and berated and harassed the victim herself.

Dating back to 2009, Asmi Fathelbab states Majed Seif, who lived in the same building where the Arab American Association offices are located, allegedly began stalking Fathelbab.
“He would sneak up on me during times when no one was around, he would touch me, you could hear me scream at the top of my lungs,” Asmi Fathelbab tells The Daily Caller. “He would pin me against the wall and rub his crotch on me.”
Fathelbab states she was dismissed by Sarsour outright. “She called me a liar because ‘Something like this didn’t happen to women who looked like me,’” Asmi says. “How dare I interrupt her TV news interview in the other room with my ‘lies.’”Sarsour also claimed Seif was a good Muslim man who attended the mosque regularly, therefore he wouldn’t do such things to women.
Although Sarsour has been seen as the savior for women she calls “marginalized”, and “oppressed”, she is compliant with the laws of Islam, which places women below men. As expected, Sarsour’s male supporters came out in droves to protect her, claiming this was the result of Islamophobia against a Muslim woman, who was speaking out on injustices against Muslims.
Hassan Shibly, director of the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas organization CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) was one of the first to protect Sarsour, indicting those calling out Sarsours two faced agenda as bigots.
In the typical Islamic fashion, even comments on Fathelbabs social media blamed her for being the victim, as she attempted to tell her story.
Ah, yes the tolerant, peaceful, caring adherents of Islam.
What women across the country need to see is that Linda Sarsour, the woman who stood before thousands of them professing power and enlightenment to all women, is a farce. Women from her own religion suffer from female genital mutilation, rape and other atrocities against them for being women.
If this is the only woman so many feel can champion rights, and empower young girls, America is in a world of hurt.
