A woman once named as a “Champion of Change” by the Obama White House and has been honored by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is railing against “Honor Diaries,” a film depicting misogyny in Islamic cultures.
Linda Sarsour, executive director of the Arab American Association of New York, has been “rabidly” campaigning against the film depicting the plight of Arab women. Last month she tweeted this:
How many times do we have to tell White women that we do not need to be saved by them? Is there code language I need to use to get thru?

The film’s executive producer is Ayaan Hirsi Ali a Somali black woman.
Former federal prosecutor and National Review contributing editor Andrew McCarthy told Fox News host Megyn Kelly Tuesday that Sarsour is “in league with other Islamic supremest thinkers, who think that anything that sheds a light on this is something we shouldn’t see.”
Throughout her most recent smear campaign against “Honor Diaries,” Sarsour continues to be honored by the White House, according to Kelly.
On the other hand, Hirsi Ali, the film’s executive producer, became the target of the Council on American-Islamic Relations Tuesday after Brandeis University announced it intended to honor her. CAIR sent out this tweet:
Action Alert: Ask Brandeis University Not to Honor Islamophobe Ayaan Hirsi Ali http://t.co/UOUJuBdz3r (Click-and-send letter).

Within hours, Joseph Lumbard chairman of Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies at Brandeis tweeted:
Brandeis President Lawrence has withdrawn invitation to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, this is an act of great courage on his part: http://t.co/Xzhu25OZ5I

Great courage? No, Brandeis exhibited great cowardice on this one.
