‘BIG BANG’ star claims Linda Sarsour’s anti-Zionist statement as bigotry and irresponsible

 

Jewish-American actress Mayim Bialik responds to Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour’s claim that ‘Feminism & Zionism can’t coexist’ as untrue, bigoted, and watch Human Right’s activist Ayaan Hirsi, explain why Sarsour is a fake, since she supports Sharia Law: FGM, women as slaves, without equal right.

Jewish-American actress Mayim Bialik took to her website GrokNation this week to fire back at recent comments by Palestinian-American activist Linda Sarsour, who stated in an interview with The Nation that one cannot be both a Zionist and a feminist.

“Are there things that happen in Israel and the Palestinian territories which cause pain and suffering to women? Absolutely.

And being a Zionist doesn’t mean a definitional indifference to this suffering, especially of Palestinian women and children,” Bialik wrote. She added that in many other Muslim countries women face a list of offenses, including becoming child brides and honor killings.

Bialik questioned why Israel is held to a different standard than these countries, stating that the offenses of the other countries could arguably be considered more extreme.

She went on to explain what she indicated is the bigotry in making such a broad claim.

“It smarts of a broad-stroke bias against the entire Jewish people for the violations that occur in a state that was founded on the principles of Zionism,” Bialik wrote.

The actress finished her essay by stating that, “Ultimately, for a feminist activist – or any activist – to place the blame for policies made by a few people on the entire entity of Zionism and all who are committed to the idea of a Jewish state is irresponsible.

“As a feminist Zionist, I can’t believe I am being asked to choose or even defend my religious, historical and cultural identity,” she added.

The Big Bang Theory star issued definitions of both Zionism and feminism, stating that she adheres to both beliefs.

Sarsour was in the Jewish media spotlight last month for quite a different reason. Following the vandalism of a Jewish cemetery outside St. Louis, she and another Muslim activist, Tarek El-Messidi, organized a fund-raiser for the repair of the burial site.

    True to Palestinian culture, Linda Sarsour is a bigoted anti-Zionist and anti-feminist who uses deception and double-speak to enhance her image, exploit any cause as her own, and use it as a platform to demonize & delegitimize the ONLY Jewish State, that happens to bestow equal rights to men, women & minorities, something NO OTHER Mideast country affords.

    It is ironic that the Women’s March was organized by someone who is Muslim. She should by helping the women of her culture have a voice and stand against sex slavery, abuse of Human Rights, FMG etc. That would give her more credibility. Unfortunately, if she did, she herself would be a target amid her own kind. It is easy for her in a western culture to gain a platform, but the average woman doesn’t dig too far down to find out her background – if they did her support would drop. Her modus operandi is to run with the hare and hunt with the hounds.
