Once a victim, always a victim.
Palestinian rights activist and Women’s March co-founder Linda Sarsour denies she dismissed a claim of sexual harassment from a woman who worked at her Brooklyn office.
“This is character assassination,” she told BuzzFeed News. “This is where we have to draw the line. I have two daughters. This is not the type of behavior I engage in.”
Not surprisingly, the Islamic terrorism apologist claimed SHE is the victim, not Asmi Fathelbab, who said she was subjected to repeated groping and unwanted touching by a man who lived in the same building where the Arab American Association’s offices are located.

Sarsour told BuzzFeed that Fathelbab’s claims do not match the account brought to her attention by the employee.
“The exact words were, ‘He makes me feel uncomfortable,’” Sarsour said. “There was nothing about touching or groping.”
And Sarsour all but challenged Fathelbab to prove her wrong.
“There’s no evidence,” she said, “no email she can pull out where she ever gave those claims to us.”
Sarsour also denied a body-shaming claim, saying that “never, ever” happened.
Referencing her weight, Sarsour allegedly told Fathelbab “something like this didn’t happen to women who looked like me,” the employee recounted.
Faathelbab stood by her claims, disputing her former employer’s denials.
“I told her everything that was going on. And half of the time she could actually hear me screaming from the other side,” she told BuzzFeed News.
