In an interview with The Advocate, a gay community magazine, Milano condemned Women’s March organizers Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory for supporting Louis Farrakhan. The Nation of Islam leader has routinely made misogynistic, homophobic, and anti-Semitic comments. “Any time that there is any bigotry or anti-Semitism in that respect, it needs to be called out and addressed. I’m disappointed in the leadership of the Women’s March that they haven’t done it adequately,” Milano said.
Eleven Jews were killed because they were Jews, gathered for Shabbat services at the Tree of Life synagogue. Four Pittsburgh law enforcement officers were wounded as they raced toward the gunfire and prevented the tragedy from being even greater.
But one person’s statements of grief and solidarity stand out, largely because it contrasts a long record of sowing enmity and anti-Semitism. There was a vigil Sunday outside the White House. The national Women’s March made sure to post an image of national co-chair Linda Sarsour, microphone in hand, speaking in love and solidarity with American Jews.
New York resident Linda Sarsour may be a darling of the progressive movement south of the border, but her impending presence at a Muslim community convention on Oct. 6 has prompted calls for organizers to dis-invite her and has led to at least two online petitions, one of which calls for her to be banned from entering Canada.
What happens when a journalist “exposes” a document ostensibly produced by a secretive organization which had supposedly engaged in clandestine means and then it emerges that the document was produced by another organization?

The journalist’s cloak-and-dagger scoop deflates into a total non-story.
Multiple journalists, activists, and former Obama administration officials spread blatant falsehoods during Memorial Day weekend aimed at smearing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Trump administration.
Shaun King, Linda Sarsour and other liberals thought they were criticizing the Trump administration on Sunday when they tweeted a picture of immigrant minors sleeping in a caged enclosure, but it turned out they were inadvertently tweeting a photo that occurred during the Obama administration instead.
On Sunday, the Poor People’s Campaign began its 40-day cycle of mass meetings on Sundays, “direct action” protests on Mondays, and educational “teach-ins” on Tuesdays, resurrecting a late 1960s protest inspired by Martin Luther King, Jr. 40 years later. Muslim Women’s March co-founder Linda Sarsour said the protests were an “act of worship” to Allah.
On Monday, the virulently anti-Semitic icon of the Women’s March, Linda Sarsour, decided to attack the idea of President Trump as the greatest president for the Jewish people in American history in the most ironic way possible: by sanctimoniously citing someone else’s supposed anti-Semitism.
Leaders of the progressive Women’s March movement slammed the Anti-Defamation League on Tuesday as an organization that “constantly” attacks minorities of color around the world after Starbucks announced that it enlisted the civil-rights group to lead sensitivity training for its employees.
Prominent Muslim-American faith leaders on Monday were arrested at the U.S. Capitol while urging Congress to stand against President Donald Trump’s effort to end a program that protects certain young immigrants.
Critics of the Nov. 28 event, which is titled “Anti-Semitism and the Struggle for Justice,” also say it is meant to justify anti-Zionism on the left, and not address the full range of threats facing Jews from the left and the right.
