Linda Sarsour is being accused of enabling sexual assault, when she was executive director of the Arab American Association. Asmi Fathelbab worked under Sarsour for almost a year. Fathelbab told the Daily Caller that after reporting sexual assault that was happening to her, to Sarsour, Sarsour called her a liar and said “something like that doesn’t happen to someone who looks like you.” Fathelbab also claims that Sarsour threatened her with legal action and threatened to ruin Fathelbab’s career if she talked about the sexual assault.
So to be clear:
1) everyone has the Right to state their #MeToo story but me
2) politics has more say than actual sexual harassment and abuse
3) if I stand up against Linda Sarsour I am a bad Muslim or against Islam
You all realize you’re just re-enacting what I’ve been through
