This Actress Just Dropped A Bomb On Hollywood's Left, Now They Know The Truth

Linda Sarsour, a Palestinian activist, recently caused a stir with claims that there's no room for anti-Palestinian positions in feminism. The feminist who helped orchestrate the Women's March on Washington in January and the 'A Day without a Woman' demonstration, was interviewed on the topic, and her comments didn't sit well with 'The Big Bang' star Mayim Bialik.

Sarsour said in the interview, "You can't be a feminist in the United States and stand up for the rights of the American woman and then say that you don’t want to stand up for the rights of Palestinian women in Palestine. It’s all connected. Whether you’re talking about Palestinian women, Mexican women, women in Brazil, China, or women in Saudi Arabia—this feminist movement is an international global movement."

Bialik, a Ph.D. in Neuroscience who also has degrees in Hebrew and Jewish studies, was outraged by the comment. She is an orthodox Jew, a Zionist, and considers herself a feminist. She published a blog response to Sarsour's comments this week, and called out leftists who ignore 'atrocities against women' in Muslim countries.

“Zionism is the belief in the right of the Jewish people to have an autonomous state in Israel,” Bialik wrote. “I am a Zionist. Feminism is the belief that a woman-driven movement can bring about race, class and gender equality and that women deserve all of the rights and privileges afforded to men. I am a feminist.”

She says left-wing feminists need "to reexamine the microscope they use to look at Israel, and we all need to take a step back and remember we are stronger together: women, men, lovers of peace, and lovers of freedom and justice.”

The question is this: Many countries – many Muslim countries, in fact – perpetrate atrocities against women which include: female genital mutilation, forced marriages, child brides, systematic abuse of women by the justice system, revenge rape and honor killing,” the sitcom star pointed out. “Why is Israel held to a standard none of these other countries – whose offenses are, arguably more extreme – are held to? And why is belief in the State of Israel something that should exclude women – or men, for that matter – from identifying as feminists?"
