political controversialist linda sarsour has voiced support for boycott, divestment and sanctions against israel, which has led to criticism by american conservatives and leaders of the anti-defamation league, many of whom see the campaign as anti-semitic. sarsour has stated that israel has the right to exist, that she wishes to see israelis and palestinians coexist as part of a one-state solution, and that she does not support either hamas or the palestinian authority.

sarsour has stated that members of her extended family have been arrested on accusations of supporting hamas, but said they were not necessarily charged with crimes and that their situation was “just the reality of palestinians living under military occupation”.

according to the jewish telegraphic agency, “soon after the women’s march, (sarsour) drew fire from jewish leaders for telling the nation that unabashed supporters of israel cannot be feminists.” in an interview with the nation a month and a half earlier, she said:

i would say that anyone who wants to call themselves an activist cannot be selective. there is no country in this world that is immune to violating human rights. you can’t be a feminist in the united states and stand up for the rights of the american woman and then say that you don’t want to stand up for the rights of palestinian women in palestine. it’s all connected.
