The “Women’s March on Washington” took place last Saturday, on President Donald Trump’s second day in office.
Apparently, the mission of the march was to protest “the rhetoric of the past election cycle.”
But this key organizer for the event has deep family ties to the Palestinian Sunni-Islamic terrorist group, Hamas.
According to The Daily Caller, Linda Sarsour, one of the organizers for Saturday’s march, has acknowledged in past interviews that she has Palestinian cousins who are currently serving time in Israeli prison cells as a result of their work for Hamas.
Hamas was founded in 1987 and currently operates as a radical Islamist terrorist organization in the West Bank and Gaza Strip of Palestine.
The charter which governs Hamas, called the Covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement, lays out the precepts of the organization.
One of these precepts includes seeking to eliminate the state of Israel and reclaiming the land for Muslims.
Another precept is “the realization of Allah’s promise, no matter how long that should take.”
The charter calls for Muslims to fight or kill the Jews whenever “the Jews will hide behind stones and trees.”
President Obama himself called Hamas “barbaric” in 2014.
Linda Sarsour is also the head of the Arab American Association of New York.
She attended the Democratic National Convention as a delegate and was named an Obama White House “Champion of Change”.
Sarsour may have even more close family relatives who have done work for Hamas.
Along with her Palestinian cousins, Sarsour may be tied to former Hamas operative and alleged Hamas financier, Salah Sarsour.
When Linda Sarsour spoke at the 15th annual convention of the Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America last month, she was seen posing for a picture with Salah Sarsour.
Salah Sarsour spent time in an Israeli in the 1990s for his alleged work with Hamas and has been accused of raising funds for Hamas.
Linda Sarsour denies having any interaction with Hamas or other radical Muslim groups.
In the meantime, the Women’s March has received vast criticism by several conservative groups for excluding a number of pro-life women’s organizations, while the Muslim civil rights group, Council on American-Islamic Relations – which opposes abortion beyond 20 weeks – was invited to take part in the march.
The Daily Caller reports both Linda Sarsour and Salah Sarsour have close ties to the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
The Daily Caller also reports that the Council on American-Islamic Relations “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.
The Women’s March website documented the mission of the march to promote “equality” for all women:
“This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society.”
But along with women’s rights, the website’s mission also stated the recent election cycle, presumably they mean Donald Trump’s campaign, “insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us — immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault — and our communities are hurting and scared.”
The March supposedly intended to send a bold message to Donald Trump that, “Women’s rights are human rights.”
Interestingly, a controversial poster was waved throughout the Women’s March picturing a Muslim woman wearing the American flag as a hijab.
