Linda Sarsour is a New York-based, Palestinian-American activist who seems increasingly to be at center stage. But who is she and what does she stand for?
For the second week in a row, the front page of the New York Times featured an article that either provided fuel for antisemitism or sanitized those who have been accused of it. The latest purports to expose the role of Russian disinformation in dividing the Women’s March protest movement, but downplays the antisemitism of the movement's leaders, particularly that of Linda Sarsour, and whitewashes the BDS movement she promotes.

Haaretz's inexplicable inclusion of Linda Sarsour's condemnation of the synagogue massacre alongside those of Israeli leaders is puzzling.
