'Feminist' Linda Sarsour bullied, blackballed Muslima employee - reveals victim of Palestinian sex-abuser in her Arab-American Assoc. building

Linda Sarsour, the anti-Israel activist who helped spearhead the Women's March in Washington earlier this year, allegedly enabled a Muslim neighbor's sexual assaulting and harassment of a woman who worked for her- in a report quoted by Fox News. Allegations of groping and unwanted touching were brought to Sarsour's attention during her time as executive director of the Arab American Association in New York City.

"Linda Sarsour Accused of Enabling Sexual Assault Against Woman who Worked for Her" by Benny Johnson in The Daily Caller, Dec 17, 2017  
The inspiration behind the Women’s March on D.C., Linda Sarsour, has been accused of enabling the alleged sexual assault and harassment of a woman who worked for the feminist activist, according to the victim and two sources directly familiar with the matter.

Allegations of groping and unwanted touching were allegedly brought to Sarsour during her time as executive director of the Arab American Association. In response, Sarsour, a self-proclaimed champion of women, attacked the woman bringing the allegations, often threatening and body-shaming her, these sources alleged. The most serious allegations were dismissed, Asmi Fathelbab, the alleged victim told The Daily Caller, because the accused (Palestinian emigrant, Majed Seif) was a “good Muslim” who was “always at the Mosque.”

“She oversaw an environment unsafe and abusive to women,” said Fathelbab, a former employee at the Arab American Association. “Women who put [Sarsour] on a pedestal for women’s rights and empowerment deserve to know how she really treats us.” 
“It’s always going to be the woman’s fault over there,” she alleges. “And Sarsour was there to protect the men. She’s not for other women. The only women she’s for is for herself.”

“She told me I’d never work in NYC ever again for as long as she lived,” Asmi says. “She’s kept her word.  
She had me fired from other jobs when she found out where I worked. She has kept me from obtaining any sort of steady employment for almost a decade.” 
Two people who knew Fathelbab during her time at the Arab American Association spoke with TheDC on condition of anonymity. Both corroborate her story, recalling that Asmi would return “emotionally distressed and in a panic” from work, often describing it as an “unsafe” work environment.
Another New York political insider, who has worked professionally with the Arab American Association for over a decade, says this is not the first time they have heard a complaint like this. 
“Sarsour is only a feminist outwardly,” the insider said on the condition of anonymity, due to the source’s current political position. “Her interactions toward women in that building were atrocious. She would protect the patriarchy and in return they would promote her.”  
Fathelbab career has never recovered, however, after her nightmare at the Arab American Association.
“Just wait until more people start to talk,” she says. “Sarsour is no champion of women. She is an abuser of them.”
