Linda Sarsour, Women's March organizer and executive director of the Arab American Association of New York, said outside the White House on Wednesday that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is a bigot who is not welcome in the United States.
She also called President Donald Trump a bigot, and said that he and Netanyahu are two "bigoted peas in a hateful pod," Twitchy reported on Thursday.

Sarsour, a Palestinian activist, has become known for her controversial and sometimes contradictory statements. Twitchy noted two tweets in particular that appear to contain opposing messages. In the first tweet, she wrote that two women deserve an "a$$ whippin," and she wished she could "take their vaginas" because "they don't deserve to be women."

Sarsour later pinned a tweet with a very different message.
"We can disagree & still love each other, unless your disagreement is rooted in my oppression & denial of my humanity and right to exist."

Sarsour has been an outspoken critic of Netanyahu, once tweeting that the Israeli leader is "a waste of a human being."

In 2012, Sarsour accused the New York Police Department of "manufacturing" terrorism cases that target Muslim-Americans, the Washington Free Beacon previously reported. Sarsour also said in 2003 that her "Arab pride was hurt" after U.S. forces captured former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, who she said had done much to help Palestinians.
