Glamour Magazine, the publication which once remarked, “The Women’s March Organizers Sparked a Movement — and They’re Still Fighting for You,” recently named one of those women — the co-chair of the March — as one of its Glamour 2017 Women of the Year.
Curiously, aside from having planned an anti-Trump event defined by “pussy hats” and Ashley Judd’s most public embarrassment, Linda Sarsour has yet another distinction: she has vigorously promoted Sharia law.
Sarsour, previously honored by TIME Magazine and noted for summoning a "jihad" against the President, has bitterly attacked female critics of Sharia Law, such as Brigitte Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Sarsour has stated that the women needed “an ass whooping” and “their vaginas taken away” for making “front page covers and sh*t.” Ali, incidentally, suffered through genital mutilation as a young girl.
A few key rules of Sharia law:
• Theft is punishable by amputation of the hands (Quran 5:38 - includes graphic image).
• Criticizing or denying any part of the Quran is punishable by death.
• Criticizing Muhammad or denying that he is a prophet is punishable by death.
• Criticizing or denying Allah is punishable by death.
• A Muslim who becomes a non-Muslim is punishable by death.
• A non-Muslim who leads a Muslim away from Islam is punishable by death.
• A non-Muslim man who marries a Muslim woman is punishable by death.
• A woman or girl who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist(s).
According to Glamour, the (leftist) Women’s March was founded upon “intersectionality.” And the co-chairs, comprised in part by Sarsour, did the work of heroes:
“(They put) most everything else in their lives on hold, working around the clock to build websites and marketing materials and, most of all, to make sure intersectionality was a feature, not a bug.”
Those are strong words, given that they describe an event that banned pro-life groups. But still, at least the “intersections” were able to unite against a common enemy:
“Soon [Teresa] Shook and [Bob] Bland joined forces, attracting the attention of thousands who were angry that voters had elected a race-baiting white man hostile to issues like reproductive rights, civil rights, and fair pay.”
Never mind that the absence of fair pay is a myth; to eschew myths would be to eschew the idea that the Women's March represented most women. Nevertheless, Glamour sure liked it, despite Sarsour's endorsement of a system of law that calls for death to anyone who denies the Quran. These are scary times.
