What’s Linda Sarsour’s angle? The American activist, who was a surrogate for Sen. Bernie Sanders during his presidential campaign and an organizer of the Women’s March that brought half a million people to Washington in January to protest Donald Trump, last week helped start a crowdfunding campaign to repair more than 100 gravestones that vandals toppled in a St. Louis Jewish cemetery.

Sarsour, a Palestinian-American activist, is also a vocal supporter of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement that seeks to delegitimize Israel in the international community. And she doesn’t merely want Israel to open up opportunity in Gaza and quit its presence in Judea and Samaria, otherwise known as the West Bank. Rather, she is a proponent of a single binational state for Israelis and Palestinians, which would end the Jewish character of the State of Israel.
