Linda Sarsour is a New York-based, Palestinian-American anti-Israel activist who has latched on to so-called progressive political causes in the United States. According to Politico magazine, she's also one of "50 ideas blowing up American politics (and the people behind them)."
Sarsour, Politico tells readers, is number forty-six.
Reporter Taylor Gee called Sarsour a "lightning rod of the resistance" and "the picture of defiance." The article noted that Sarsour is an advocate for "intersectional progressivism" and that "her insistence on Palestinian rights as part of the progressive package has met vociferous opposition from pro-Israel Democrats, who label her exclusionary and anti-Semitic."
