Linda Sarsour, the Palestinian American activist and Women's March leader facing accusations of anti-Semitism, suggested on Tuesday that the firing of hundreds of rockets from Gaza into Israel was a legitimate response to an earlier firefight between Hamas gunmen and undercover Israeli troops.
The firefight in the southern Gaza Strip cost the lives of a senior Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) officer and seven of the Palestinians, including a terrorist commander.
"What are the people of Gaza supposed to do?" Sarsour asked. "Roll on their sides, continue to accept this aggression, an open air prison, and this siege that has strangled an entire people? When is enough – ENOUGH?"
