Women's March National Co-Chair: Sharia Law is 'Reasonable', 'Misunderstood'
by Andrew Eicher
Linda Sarsour, a national co-chair of the Women's March on Washington – whose stated mission is "to send a bold message...that women's rights are human rights" – is also an outspoken advocate of Islamic Sharia Law that restricts the rights of women, claiming Sharia is "reasonable" and has simply been "misunderstood."
"We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all," the Women's March mission statement says, in part.
Sarsour, a Palestinian Muslim American, who has said she believes that America is a nation built on the values of genocide and slavery and that "nothing is creepier than Zionism," spoke at the Women's March last Saturday.
