Hundreds of thousands of women hit the streets nationwide yesterday to protest for rights they already have.
As we reported yesterday, one of the organizers of the march was Linda Sarsour, who heads the Arab American Association of New York, was an Obama White House “Champion of Change,” spoke at last month’s 15th annual convention of the Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America. She also has close ties to our friends at CAIR, which we’ve noted on numerous occasions is a satellite organization of the Muslim Brotherhood.
So be careful before you criticize those at the march for focusing on leftist nonsense over issues actually affecting women (such as their treatment under Islam in the Middle East) – because you’ll quickly be informed by Sarsour that there’s no problem to be seen there.
So to recap logic according to Linda Sarsour:> Forcing women to cover themselves head-to-toe in black polyester in the Middle East is the last thing they worry about.
> Not giving women a particular government handout is oppressive while preventing them from driving is not.> You can judge the status of women in a nation with over 15 million of them by the fact that a few are allowed in parliament. We just need to ignore the fact that women weren’t allowed in parliament until 2013 and pretend that it’s always been this way.
> Implementing a legal system that cuts the hands of thieves, stones women as a punishment for being raped, and commands homosexuals to be thrown off buildings is the reasonable tradeoff for not having to pay interest on loans and credit cards. Good luck getting a loan in the first place under those conditions (Hint: you won’t).
A number of women at the march could be seen with signs stating that they wouldn’t go back to the 1950s when it comes to women’s rights. Sarsour would rather they go back to how they were in the 1500s.
Once again, if you’ve never read the Muslim Brotherhood’s “Explanatory Memorandum” you should. It lays out in great detail the Muslim Brotherhood’s blueprint for bringing about “civilization jihad” in North America. Specifically the Memorandum states:
The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.
Just let those words sink in: eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within. Now look at the picture from the march, with the woman wearing the American flag as a headscarf.
Makes you think, doesn’t it? It should.
