For many women, a rifle range is an unfamiliar and potentially intimidating territory, which is why we created Ladyseeds. A Ladyseed is an Appleseed designed specifically for women. It offers the opportunity for women to shoot, share and get to know each other in a comfortable learning environment. Of course, the women who attend a Ladyseed event will learn much more than how to fire a rifle, they’ll also learn American heritage and how women actively aided in the fight for America’s freedom. When you attend a Ladyseed, it’s our hope that you’ll leave with new friends, a renewed sense of country, and an enhanced sense of civic responsibility.

Florida Committee Passes Bill Requiring Parental Consent Before Teens Can Get Abortions
MICAIAH BILGER JAN 15, 2020 | 7:31PM TALLAHASSEE, FL
Florida lawmakers moved forward with a bill Wednesday to require parental consent before an underage girl has an abortion.
The legislation passed the state Senate Judiciary Committee in a 3-2 vote Wednesday, just a day after Gov. Ron DeSantis publicly announced his support, according to the Miami Herald. A similar bill currently is before the state House.
Florida Senate Bill 404, sponsored by Sen. Kelli Stargel, R-Lakeland, would require a girl under 18 to have at least one parent’s permission before going through with an abortion. The bill includes exceptions for medical emergencies and allows a judge to grant permission instead of the girl’s parent.
Stargel told lawmakers that she once was that pregnant teenage girl. Unmarried and afraid, Stargel said she considered having an abortion but chose life for her child instead, the Miami Herald reports.
“When I told [my mother] I wanted to have my child, she supported me,” Stargel said. “Everyone thinks that their parent is going to kill them or kick them out. I was shocked at my mother’s response as a child when I went through this.”
She said her bill would help ensure families have a conversation about pregnancy and abortion before the teen makes a final, irreversible decision.
Her bill quickly is gaining support from state leaders, including the governor, Senate President Bill Galvano and House Speaker José Oliva, the newspaper reports.
“I hope that the Legislature will send me this session the parental consent bill that last year was passed by the House but not by the Senate,” DeSantis said Tuesday during his State of the State address.
According to The Florida Phoenix, since 2009, more than 3,000 underage girls in Florida have used the judicial waiver, rather than notify their parents about their abortions. A legislative analysis found that 93 percent of their requests were approved.
Meanwhile, abortion activists slammed the legislation as “dangerous.”
Kara Gross of American Civil Liberties Union of Florida claimed parental consent laws drive young girls to seek back alley abortions, News Service of Florida reports.

“The reality is if a minor does not want to have a child, they will find a way to make sure they don’t,” Gross said. “And if they aren’t able to access the care they need with the support of their parents, they will utilize a less-safe method.”
Trish Neely of the Florida League of Women Voters even claimed that the bill will “lead to more girls dying in their basements of sepsis because they are afraid” to tell their parents that they are pregnant, according to The Center Square.
But the opposite is true. Parental consent laws help protect young girls. They can help young victims of sexual abuse who may be forced or coerced into an abortion by their abuser. The laws also help protect vulnerable teens from making a hasty, uninformed decision to abort their unborn babies – something they may later regret. And research shows that these laws help save unborn babies from abortions.
Parental involvement laws have strong public support, and 37 states currently require it in some form before a minor aborts her unborn baby. Recently, however, Illinois, Massachusetts and Rhode Island considered pro-abortion bills to end their parental involvement laws.
Polls show strong support for parental involvement laws. A Gallup poll found 71 percent of Americans favor laws requiring parents’ involvement in a minor’s abortion decision.
News outlet predicted that the bill could pass the state legislature this session.
How to Find Your Best Aiming Eye
To Learn Which Eye You Should Aim with, What Do You Need?
With just your hands, you can learn which eye is your strongest one, regardless of whether you have glasses or contacts. Once you do learn which eye is your strongest, you’ll want to use it as your aiming eye to center targets and set sights. This is the eye that will give you the most accurate results.
Extend your arms straight in front of you. Create a triangle with your hands by touching the tips of each index finger as well as each thumb. Focus on something within your site, putting it in the center of the triangle you created.
Close each eye, one at a time, and look at the object while your arms are still extended and your hands form a triangle. Note which eye keeps the object closest to the center of the triangle. This eye is your strongest eye.
The brain actually merges the two images you see to create just one. Think of your strongest eye as the lead eye, and the one you should use for aiming your gun, bow, or other device.
Hypocritical Women’s March Says it ‘Loves’ but Actually Spreads ‘Hate’
By Jeff Dunetz
March 7, 2018
Because Sen. Gillibrand’s friend and Women’s March organizer Tamika Mallory was at Louis Farrakhan’s hate-fest last week, the Women’s March organizers were under pressure to condemn Farrakhan.
This is despite the fact that Mallory has been a fan of Farrakhan for a long time:
After a week of pressure, the Women’s March finally released a statement that neither condemns Farrakhan the minister of hate nor does it apologize for the fact that the Women’s March leadership is filled with haters.
The statement is a lie. A year ago the Women’s March organized “A Day Without Women.” Those protests were run a Palestinian Terrorist who killed two students and was deported from the US in 2017, groups who call for the destruction of the State of Israel, and groups who participate in the anti-Semitic BDS movement
Rasmea Yousef Odeh is one of eight women who organized this particular protest. She’s a woman who spent a decade in an Israeli jail for her involvement in two terrorist bombings made while she was a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). One of those attacks, a 1969 bombing of a Jerusalem Super-Sol Market killed two Hebrew University Students Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner while they were shopping for groceries.
On February 6th, Odeh she joined other radicals to write a manifesto for the March 8th protest. Her cohorts included Angela Davis, a self-professed communist professor (now retired), who was a member of the original Black Panthers and a 1960s radical icon. Davis was prosecuted and acquitted in 1972 for an armed takeover of a California courtroom that resulted in the murder of a judge. Other co-authors included Maoism supporter Tithi Bhattacharya (Maoists are considered a terrorist group), as well as Linda Martín Alcoff, Cinzia Arruzza, Nancy Fraser, Barbara Ransby, and Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor
Joining in on the fun was a rogue’s gallery of anti-Semitic organizations as well as ones calling for the destruction of Israel.
Al-Awda The Palestine Right to Return Coalition, American Muslims for Palestine – Upper NY, International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network, Jewish Voice for Peace NYC (JVP was labeled a hate group by the progressive ADL), and Jews for Palestinian Right of Return. Odeh will be appearing on a panel later this month at the Jewish Voice for Peace’s national convention
American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) is perhaps the most troubling of the organizations listed. Jonathan Schanzer, the vice president for research at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, testified to Congress last year that AMP was founded former members of the Holy Land Foundation, which was shut down after it was found to have been funding the terrorist group Hamas. Salah Sarsour, a current AMP board member, was once jailed in Israel for sending funds to Hamas. (Ironically, Hamas, the terrorist group that rules the Gaza Strip, announced earlier this week that it was cancelling the International Women’s Day holiday.)
AMP is also a leading promoter of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign targeting Israel, which is both anti-Israel and anti-Semitic. Many leaders of the BDS campaign have publicly affirmed that they seek Israel’s destruction. BDS co-founder Omar Barghouti, an opponent of the two-state solution, said in 2014 that Palestinians have a right to “resistance by any means, including armed resistance,” while leading activist As’ad Abu Khalil acknowledged in 2012 that “the real aim of BDS is to bring down the state of Israel.”
Odeh became a citizen in 2004, but in 2014 she was convicted of lying to the immigration authorities about her Israeli conviction. Odeh checked “no” on immigration and citizenship forms filled out when asked whether she had ever been convicted of a crime. She was also accused of lying in her immigration papers about her prior residency, falsely claiming that she had lived in Jordan from 1948 until she came to America. On 9/20/17 after a three-year very public court battle that her Woman’s March friends had to know about, the woman who killed two boys officially lost the US citizenship was deported from the United States for concealing her murder/conviction of two Israeli college students...(READ MORE...)
Rasmea Odeh’s Exit, Stage Left
by Ruthie Blum
Convicted Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh received a standing ovation this weekend in Chicago from an enthusiastic crowd at the national conference of the organization Jewish Voice for Peace.
Luckily for Odeh — who took part in the bombing of a Jerusalem supermarket in 1969, which killed Hebrew University students Leon Kanner and Eddie Joffe — the Jewish state she and her radical leftist buddies in the US Jewish community would see eradicated let her out of jail as part of a prisoner exchange. Still, she has expressed no gratitude to the liberal society that set her free in 1980, or to the one that has enabled her since then to roam around freely, spewing her vitriol and inciting violence. On the contrary, the proud member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, who feels no remorse for the innocent boys she killed, also defied the country that took her in as in immigrant – concealing her terrorist past in order to enter the United States.
Not only that. Last month, Odeh’s three-year battle with the US government, which was sparked by her being convicted of immigration fraud, came to a happy end with a plea bargain according to which she would be stripped of her American citizenship and deported, but serve no jail time.
The Rasmea Defense Committee, a vocal group of avid supporters, had the nerve to respond to this piece of luck and ill-deserved generosity by saying that her decision to accept the deal was difficult, but it was the best she could hope for under the “current racist political climate” of President Donald Trump, in which her “prospects for a fair trial are slimmer than ever.”
It is bad enough that Odeh only spent 10 years in an Israeli prison. Worse still that she is getting off the hook for her subsequent crime. But the fact that she has been elevated to some kind of sainthood, lauded by feminist, black and other self-described human rights activists is as shocking as it is shameful.
To add insult to injury, Jewish Voice for Peace pressured the management of the Hyatt Regency Hotel, the venue rented for the hate-filled conference, not to allow a pro-Israel group to rent a separate room in which to hold a memorial service for Odeh’s victims. This is a classic case of what renowned law professor Alan Dershowitz calls “free speech for me and not for thee.”
Yes, as long as Jewish Voice for Peace and its non-Jewish counterparts — such as Students for Justice in Palestine and Black Lives Matter, which use it as a cover for their antisemitism – have the microphone, anything goes. Even glorifying cold-blooded murder. But when an organization like StandWithUs wants to present an opposing viewpoint, any underhanded tactics to prevent it from doing so are kosher.
Ultimately, StandWithUs prevailed and conducted a vigil for Kanner and Joffe during the conference, albeit in a different building of the Hyatt complex. But it was a quiet ceremony, unlike that of Jewish Voice for Peace, which cheered Odeh when she said, “We need you to continue resisting Trump’s agenda and to continue challenging the Zionists and to continue providing your solidarity and support to the Palestinian and Arab national movement.”
Odeh, who was 21 when she played a key role in the terrorist attack, failed to mention that if not for Israeli policy, she would have spent the rest of her life behind bars. Instead, she has been a liberated woman since the age of 32. The now 69-year-old also left out the fact that the U.S. justice system – yes, in Trump’s America – can take credit for her ability to trade jail for Jordan, where she will undoubtedly be hailed as a heroine.
Good riddance, Rasmea; too bad you can’t take your sycophants with you. But, as you surely know, Jordanian law forbids Jews from becoming citizens.

WOMEN’S MARCH CONVICTED TERRORIST AGREES TO BE DEPORTED IN EXCHANGE FOR NO JAIL TIME
March 29, 2017 by Debra Heine
Convicted terrorist and Women’s March organizer Rasmea Yousef Odeh is scheduled to be deported after lying on her citizenship application, The Washington Times reported. Odeh, a Palestinian, agreed to be deported in exchange for no jail time after it emerged that she lied about having been convicted of Islamic terrorism.
Odeh is scheduled to appear in court April 25 in Detroit, where she plans to plead guilty to “unlawful procurement of naturalization” in a deal that will allow her to leave the United States to avoid up to 18 months in prison.
She had been scheduled to undergo another trial after a U.S. appeals court vacated her 2014 conviction, saying an expert witness should have been allowed to testify that she suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder from allegedly being tortured in prison when she gave the false answers.
The 69-year-old Palestinian activist was convicted in the 1969 supermarket bombing in Israel that killed two Hebrew University students.
She served 10 years before being released in a prisoner exchange.
Her supporters said it would be “impossible for Rasmea to expect a fair trial in U.S. courts.”
According to the UK Daily Mail, Odeh was also one of several authors who penned an open letter in The Guardian calling on women across the U.S. to take part in “striking, marching, blocking roads” and other activities in a day of “grassroots, anti-capitalist feminism.”
Soon after the letter was published, the New York Post reported that Odeh had been convicted for her role in the two terrorist bombings. Here is a brief summary of the case against Odeh courtesy of Legal Insurrection’s Professor Jacobson:
Rasmea claims she was not involved in the supermarket bombing, and was convicted only because she gave a false confession after 25 days of sexual torture. Previously, we have explored the factual conflicts in Rasmea’s story, including that she confessed the day after arrest, not 25 days later; bomb-making material was found in her room; she received an open trial observed by a representative of the International Red Cross who described the trial as fair; and perhaps most important, Rasmea’s co-conspirator, Ayesha Odeh (not related), described in a 2004 interview for a pro-Palestinian filmmaker how Rasmea was the mastermind behind the supermarket bombing.
After serving nearly a decade in prison, Rasmea was released in a prisoner release for an Israel soldier captured in Lebanon.
While she was imprisoned, the PFLP formed the “Rasmea Odeh Brigade” to try to free her and others by taking hostages, and Rasmea was on the list of prisoners whose release was sought by the Black September terrorists who took Israeli athletes hostage (and killed them) at the 1972 Olympics. Yet Rasmea claims she was not involved in terror organizations and was just an innocent political activist when arrested by the Israelis.Rasmea eventually made her way to the U.S. in the mid-1990s.
Rasmea gave false answers on her visa application, and in 2004 on her naturalization application, by denying (among other lies) that she EVER (bold and CAPS in original) was convicted or imprisoned.Rasmieh was convicted of immigration fraud in November 2014.
Jacobson told The Washington Times that Odeh’s decision to cop a plea deal was “no surprise.”
“She was convicted of immigration fraud in the first trial, and would have been convicted in the re-trial,” Mr. Jacobson said in an email. “Her new defense that PTSD caused her to falsely answer simple questions on her naturalization papers about past convictions and imprisonment was laughable. Rasmea and her supporters invented an alternate universe based on hatred of Israel, but alternate universes tend not to do very well in court when faced with real world evidence.”
Odeh was one of the organizers of the Women’s Strike on March 8, hailed as a day for women to “strike, walk out, march and demonstrate” in favor of a new “feminism for the 99%, a grassroots, anti-capitalist feminism.” The anti-Trump convicted terrorist has also been invited to speak at a Jewish conference being held in Chicago from March 31 to April 2.
Jewish Voice for Peace is honored to feature deeply respected Palestinian organizer Rasmea Odeh at our upcoming National Membership Meeting. The meeting will be a critical place for 1,000 JVP members to craft strategies to resist the right-wing extremism emboldened by the leadership of President Trump and his mirror in Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and to build community for the long haul.
In both Israel and the U.S. the accusation of terrorism is used to stoke fear, dehumanize whole communities, and violently repress, incarcerate, bomb, deport, spy on, invade and occupy those communities and their homelands. Trump’s Muslim Ban comes out of the context of decades of this Islamophobic “war-on-terror” rhetoric which mirrors Israel’s decades of demonizing Palestinians.
We are eager to hear from Odeh, a feminist leader in the Palestinian and Arab-American community in Chicago, precisely because she has survived decades of Israeli and US government persecution and oppression, and also because she lives and breathes the essential work of community organizing–having spent her life as both a lawyer and organizer for the empowerment of Arab women.
American-Israeli Adena Mark registered her disgust with the “perversely” named JVP for inviting the murderer of two young Jewish students to speak at their conference.

Ben Shapiro Destroys The Abortion Argument
Cancer fighter ready to take on Skyway 10K
Kathleen Powers has two chemo treatments left but isn't letting cancer keep her off the bridge.
Author: Bobby Lewis
Updated: 6:18 PM EST February 28, 2019
Kathleen Powers will be wearing a new shirt when she crosses the Skyway Bridge on March 3. Her black tank top features a bright pink bow in place of the ‘A’ in the word ‘WARRIOR’ across her chest.
“It’s not a survivor. It’s a warrior,” she said. “After going through all this, I do definitely feel like a warrior.”
Exactly a year after her breast cancer diagnosis, the mother of two is training to complete the Skyway 10K. She has two chemo treatments to go before finishing her fight against cancer.
“You’re tired and stuff from treatments,” she said. “You don’t get to train. To be able to get through it is really important.”
Kathleen walks/jogs 4.5 miles a few times per week around her Wesley Chapel neighborhood. She is hoping it will prepare her for the 6-mile trek across the Bay Area’s highest bridge.
“I’m a little scared of heights,” she said with a chuckle.
She is on preventative chemo and will have to take a pill for the next five years. Spanning the Skyway Bridge will mark the completion of her cancer journey.
“It’s about finishing, not about the time,” she said. “It’s the idea of getting over the chemo, getting over the bridge.”

WOMEN’S MARCH’ LEADER WAS JUST BOOTED FROM AMERICA
September 20, 2017
by Matt Palumbo
Of all the leaders in the anti-Trump Women’s March earlier this year, Linda Sarsour’s name has stood out the most.
After all, she’s been the subject of much media attention — most of it hardly positive, and for good reason. One need only go through her social media history to see that she supports Sharia Law, even calling for anti-Islam apologists Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Brigette Ganriel to have their vaginas taken out (Ali was the victim of female genital mutilation as a child), and praising cop killers. She’s also public about her friendship with Imam Siraj Wahhaj, whom she describes as her spiritual mentor. Wahhaj is an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombings, and like Linda, wants to bring Sharia Law to America. But would you believe that Sarsour isn’t the only jihad-sympathizer behind the women’s march? In fact, the march enlisted the help of a convicted jihadist who has finally been deported...(Read More...)
LINDA SARSOUR’S TERRORIST FRIEND STRIPPED OF CITIZENSHIP, PERMANENTLY BANNED FROM U.S.
August 20, 2017 by Ryan Saavedra
An associate of Linda Sarsour and an organizer for the Women’s March – who is a convicted terrorist and murderer – was stripped of her citizenship and ordered to be deported from the United States on Thursday after lying to U.S. officials.
Rasmieh Yousef Odeh (First name also spelled Rasmea), 70, lost her citizenship and will be removed from the U.S. for intentionally falsifying her U.S. citizenship documents after an in-depth investigation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), according to a statement from ICE.
Making the announcement was acting U.S. Attorney Daniel L. Lemisch and HSI Detroit special agent Steve Francis.
“Today’s court action clears the way for this defendant’s removal from the United States and should serve as an unequivocal message that the U.S. will never be a haven for those seeking to distance themselves from their past atrocities,” Francis said.
Lemisch explained Odeh’s past as a convicted terrorist before she immigrated to the U.S. in 1994 on an immigrant visa:
In 1969, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine conducted two bombings in Jerusalem, Israel. One was at a Supersol supermarket, in which two individuals were killed and many more wounded. The second bombing was at the British Consulate. Defendant Odeh was arrested and charged with participation in the bombings, and in 1970 was convicted. She was sentenced to life imprisonment, but was released in 1979 after ten years’ imprisonment, as part of a prisoner exchange. In numerous television and video interviews throughout the years, other admitted participants in the bombings named Odeh as the person who chose the supermarket as a target, scouted the location and placed the bomb.
Far-left Palestinian-American activist Linda Sarsour – who recently called for Muslims to wage a form of “Jihad” against President Donald Trump – has a long history of defending Odeh and has spoken with her at events.
In April, Sarsour spoke alongside Odeh at an event and gave her a warm embrace, The Daily Caller reported at the time.
The New York Post reported at the event Sarsour said she felt “honored and privileged to be here in this space, and honored to be on this stage with Rasmea.”
Sarsour has also defended and promoted Odeh on Twitter:
In her plea agreement, Odeh admitted to lying about her criminal history by claiming that she had never been arrested, convicted of a crime, or imprisoned.
“Had Odeh revealed the truth about her criminal history, as she was required to by law, she never would have been granted an immigrant visa, admitted to the United States, allowed to live here for the last 22 years, or granted United States Citizenship,” ICE also noted in their statement.
7 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WOMEN’S MARCH ORGANIZER LINDA SARSOUR
July 9, 2017 by Aaron Bandler
Women’s March Organizer Linda Sarsour has made her way into the news again after calling for “jihad” against President Trump. Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro has the lowdown on it here, but Sarsour’s latest statement and the leftists defending her statements highlight just how radicalized the Left has become in their embrace of Sarsour.
Here are seven things you need to know about Sarsour.
1. Sarsour was irked by Barack Obama’s call for Muslims to help eradicate Islamic extremism. Shortly after the San Bernardino terrorist attack, Obama stated that “extremist ideology” is “a real problem that Muslims must confront without excuse.”
This was apparently triggering for Sarsour, who responded by saying, “We would never ask any other faith community to stand up and condemn acts of violence committed by people within their groups.” She later added, “The fact that this is only directed at the Muslim community is something that I personally can’t accept.”
Perhaps Sarsour’s reaction to Obama’s statement is due to her own vitriolic extremism.
2. Sarsour is warm toward Louis Farrakhan. Sarsour actually appeared onstage with Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who has a record of anti-Semitism and vitriolhimself, at Farrakhan’s #JusticeOrElse rally in 2015: (H/T: Algemeiner)
The three-minute clip shows Sarsour opening her talk “in the name of god, the most beneficial, the most merciful,” addressing the crowd repeatedly as “sisters and brothers.” Anyone familiar with Farrakhan’s antisemitic efforts to blame Jews for problems and hardships experienced by blacks in the US could hear a similar message from Sarsour, who asserted: “The same people who justify the massacres of Palestinian people and call it collateral damage are the same people who justify the murder of young black men and women.” In yet another echo of Farrakhan’s rhetoric, Sarsour assured her “sisters and brothers” that the “common enemy … is white supremacy;” she also insisted that “the liberation of the Palestinian people is bound up with the liberation of Black people in America.”
After the rally, Sarsour said of Farrakhan, “The brother does not age. God bless him.” Prior to the rally, she lavished praise on Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam (NOI):
Yet, in 2012, Sarsour publicly embraced the NOI as “an integral part” of “the history of Islam in America,” emphasizing that “Sunni, Shia, Sufi, Nation of Islam — we are #Muslim, we are all part of one ummah, one family. #Islam.” Two years later, Sarsour insisted that it was not possible to “learn or teach about the history of Islam in America without talking about the Nation of Islam (NOI).”
Farrakhan, of course, has a lengthy record of anti-Semitism and anti-white racism, as The Daily Wire has detailed here.
3. Sarsour seems to like a number of Islamic terrorists. These include:
4. Sarsour was “hurt” by the death of Saddam Hussein. Here’s what Sarsour said in 2003: (emphasis bolded)
Linda Sarsour, who is American-born and of Palestinian descent, said many
Palestinians viewed Hussein as a hero because he steadfastly supported
Palestinians in their struggle against Israel. She and other Palestinian New
Yorkers felt humiliated by the way Hussein was caught and shown, disheveled and
pathetic-looking, on international television, Sarsour said.
“I think he’s done a lot of things he shouldn’t have done, but I was hurt.
My Arab pride was hurt,” said Sarsour, 23, of Bensonhurst. “Palestinians are
under so much oppression and no other Arab country ever helped them.”
Here is a list of crimes that Hussein committed during his reign in Iraq:
1980 — Fayli Deportations and Killings
Thousands of Kurds of the Fayli sect were persecuted. Some were expelled to Iran, others killed. Saddam thought of them as Iranian, and therefore as enemies. Fayli women were often imprisoned or put into camps.
1983 — Barzani Abductions
After the Iraqi-based Kurdistan Democratic Party allied with Iran during the Iran-Iraq War, Saddam sought to punish the clan and its leader, Massoud Barzani. More than 5,000 males, some as young as 10, disappeared. Decades later the remains of 512 Barzani men were discovered in a mass grave. They were reinterred in 2005. A letter that shows Saddam’s direct involvement in the crimes was discovered in Baghdad.
1988 — Al-Anfal Campaign
From February to September 1988, Saddam conducted what has been called a genocidal campaign against the Kurdish population. Gen. Ali Hassan al-Majid, or “Chemical Ali,” Saddam’s cousin, carried out the Al-Anfal operation using chemical weapons. Human Rights Watch estimates between 50,000 and 100,000 died. Kurdish officials and some international human rights groups put the number killed as high as 182,000. Saddam was on trial for the Anfal campaign at the time of his execution. Six defendants remain in the Al-Anfal case, including “Chemical Ali,” who is facing charges of genocide.
1988 — Halabja Gassing
During the Anfal campaign, “Chemical Ali” ordered an attack against civilians in the town of Halabja. Iraqi forces dropped bombs containing mustard and nerve gases. An estimated 5,000 men, women and children died in a single day. Many more died from long-term medical problems, and birth defects are still common in the area.
1990s — Marsh Arabs Devastated
Saddam attacked the Shiite “Marsh Arabs” by destroying their land. Once a significant wetland, the marshes in southern Iraq were devastated by a government drainage plan that left behind a wasteland. In 1991, 250,000 Marsh Arabs lived in the region. Now 90 percent of the area is in ruins and only an estimated 20,000 people remain. Tens of thousands live in refugee camps in Iran. Efforts are now underway to restore the marshes. Human Rights Watch calls the campaign against the Marsh Arabs a crime against humanity and other rights activists call it genocide. There are claims chemical weapons also were used.
1990 — Invasion of Kuwait
In August of 1990, Saddam ordered the Iraqi military, the fourth largest military in the world at the time, to invade Kuwait, leading to the 1991 Gulf War. Iraqi soldiers are accused of torturing and executing hundreds of Kuwaitis, as well as taking hostages and looting. More than 700 oil wells were set on fire and pipelines opened, spilling oil into the Gulf.
1991 — Kurdish and Shiite Rebellions
After heeding President George H.W. Bush’s call to rebel against Saddam, Shiites and Kurds were crushed by immense Iraqi military force. Saddam turned his military against the people as part of his widespread crackdown after the war. The rebels thought they would have the backing of the U.S. military. Thousands have been discovered in mass graves.
1999 — Al-Sadr Assassination
Ayatollah Muhammed al-Sadr, father of prominent Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, and two of his sons were assassinated in 1999. Al-Sadr was a well-liked Shiite leader, and his death spawned Shiite uprisings in Baghdad. As he had previously, Saddam cracked down on the rebellion and hundreds were killed.
In a statement responding to the execution, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki said, “Let the families of Iraqi martyrs killed in mass graves, Anfal, Halabja or those executed in the cells of the dead regime be happy. The mothers, orphans and widows should celebrate the death of the buried dictator.”
It’s one thing to debate whether or not going to war with Iraq was good policy; it’s quite another to suggest that the death of Saddam Hussein “hurt my Arab pride.”
5. Sarsour is an advocate for Sharia law.
Harry Khachatrian smacked Sarsour for her whitewashing of Saudi Arabia:
The Tower also excoriated Sarsour for her Sharia apologism:
“Sharia law is reasonable and once u read into the details it makes a lot of sense. People just know the basics,” Sarsour wrote on social media in 2011. That would be the same fundamentalist Islamic code that is enslaving, mutilating, and killing hundreds of millions of Muslims and non-Muslims across the Islamic world. Let’s go, as Linda demands, into details for a moment.
Brunei, a small oil-rich sultanate bordering Malaysia and the South China Sea, known as a popular tourist’s destination, is currently in the process of implementing full Sharia law for all citizens regardless of religious denomination. Draconian punishments such as amputation of hands for theft and floggings for indecent behavior have already been initiated. Phase three is expected to come into effect in 2018 and includes the most severe punishments. Adultery, abortion, homosexuality, apostasy and blasphemy will all be punishable by death, including stoning.
Now that we have more gory details than most of us wanted to digest, perhaps Linda can explain what exactly is “reasonable” about chopping off limbs and stoning women to death.
How can Sarsour claim to be a champion of women’s rights when she advocates for a backward, third world system that actually oppresses women?
6. Sarsour has a searing hatred for Israel. Sarsour has openly stated that there shouldn’t be a two-state solution due to Israel’s building of settlements in Judea and Samaria. Instead, she thinks that Israel should just cease to exist.
“My hope is that it will be one state, one man one vote, that everyone is treated equally,” Sarsour told Haaretz. “Then you can say that part of the world is a true democracy.”
In the perverse mind of Sarsour, her hope is that a one-state solution would turn Israel into a Palestinian state because the Palestinian voters would outnumber Israeli voters. Of course, this would not come to fruition, as “Jews outnumber Palestinian Arabs outside of the Gaza Strip by a factor of two-to-one, and Jews now have the equivalent birth rate of Palestinian Arabs, and will soon have a higher birth rate,” according to Shapiro, but the fact that her goal is for the Jewish state to be replaced by a Palestinian state shows her extremism on the issue.
Sarsour’s hate for Israel has even caused her to tweet out a photo of a Palestinian child preparing to stone Israel Defense Forces with the caption “The definition of courage. #Palestine.”
Additionally, Sarsour has called Zionism “creepy” and stated that it’s not compatible with feminism.
“It just doesn’t make any sense for someone to say, ‘Is there room for people who support the state of Israel and do not criticize it in the movement?'” Sarsour told The Nation. “There can’t be in feminism. You either stand up for the rights of all women, including Palestinians, or none. There’s just no way around it.”
Sarsour has also downplayed anti-Semitism in that it “can’t exactly compare . . . to anti-black racism or Islamophobia.”
7. Sarsour once tweeted something vile about Brigitte Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Sarsour tweeted in 2011, “Brigitte Gabriel = Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She’s asking 4 an a$$ whippin’. I wish I could take their vaginas away- they don’t deserve to be women.”
That tweet has been deleted, but she hasn’t really owned up to it. When she was confronted by a student in May in an appearance at Dartmouth, Sarsour deflected by claiming that because the student was white he couldn’t relate to the struggle of minorities and that he had gotten his information from “a right-wing blog.” She also bloviated that people say “stupid sh*t sometimes,” although she refused to say that she had actually issued that vile tweet toward Gabriel and Ali.
“I will be judged by my impeccable track record,” Sarsour said.
Sarsour will be judged by her track record, and her record states that she is a Sharia-supporting, Israel-hating, terrorist-sympathizing lady who has called for “jihad” against President Trump. And she is a rock star among the Left.
