Activist Linda Sarsour arrested during Women’s March

During the “Day Without a Woman” demonstration in New York City Wednesday, police arrested anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour for disorderly conduct.

The incident occurred outside Trump International Hotel, where police had given the group several warnings to get out of the road in front of the hotel.   After they refused to move, Sarsour and several other protesters were arrested and led away in handcuffs.

Sarsour was one of the leading organizers behind the Women’s March in January, the day after Trump’s inauguration.  She is a Palestinian-American, and executive director of the Arab American Association of New York.

Sarsour claims to be a supporter of women’s rights, but she is also a huge supporter of Sharia law, and is upset that 22 states have banned it.

The Woman’s March on Washington organizers took advantage of International Woman’s Day to take to the streets again, changing the name to A Day Without a Woman.

They demonstrated in major cities across the U.S. Wednesday, although the crowds were much smaller than their marches in January.
