The woman who helped spearhead the Women’s March in Washington earlier this year, Linda Sarsour, is a Pro-Palestinian activist.
She allegedly enabled the sexual assault and harassment of a woman who worked for her, according to a report Sunday night.
Sarsour listened to allegations of groping and unwanted touching when they were brought to her attention during her time as executive director of the Arab American Association.
Asmi Fathelbab said Sarsour attacked her for bringing the allegations to her. She was threatened and body shamed.
The accused man was a “good Muslim” who was “always at the mosque,” Sarsour insisted.
Fathelbab, a former employee of the Arab American Association, said, “She oversaw an environment unsafe and abusive to women. Women who put [Sarsour] on a pedestal for women’s rights and empowerment deserve to know how she really treats us.”

Sarsour threatened legal and professional damage if Fathelbab went public with the sexual assault declaration.
Fathelbab said, “She told me he had the right to sue me for false claims.”
The assaulter allegedly “had the right to be anywhere in the building he wanted.”
Fathelbab stated that her attacker would sneak up behind her during work and rub his crotch on her.
Fathelbab professed, “It was disgusting. I ran the youth program in the building and with that comes bending down and talking to small children. You have no idea what it was like to stand up and feel that behind you. I couldn’t scream because I didn’t want to scare the child in front of me. It left me shaking.”
Fathelbab said her accusations resulted in her getting written up for disciplinary action. She was once forced to talk to a detective from the community liaison division about the consequences of making false claims to the authorities.
When her contract was finished at the Arab American Association, Fathelbab said she had problems getting new jobs.
Fathelbab said, “She told me I’d never work in NYC ever again for as long as she lived. She’s kept her word. She had me fired from other jobs when she found out where I worked. She has kept me from obtaining any sort of steady employment for almost a decade.”
They made it about her being overweight, saying she was not attractive enough to be harassed.
If women are heavy they cannot be sexually harassed? Sarsour seems to have a different way of seeing women’s rights and appears to think men have a privilege over women. She’s a Muslim. Enough said.
