News broke on Monday that that three of the inaugural board members of the Women’s March, who have been accused of anti-Semitism, stepped down from their posts on July 15.
Co-Chairs Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory and Bob Bland will reportedly be replaced by a new, and diverse group of 16 new board members that includes three Jewish women, a transgender woman, a former legislator, two religious leaders and a member of the Oglala tribe of the Lakota nation.
However, the Women’s March has decided to retain Carmen Perez, who has faced similar accusations of anti-Semitism and among the newest board members is a director of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), which has a long and vocal anti-Israel and anti-Semitic history.
Sarsour, a staunch advocate of Sharia law, has a long history of anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism.
Sarsour has tweeted that “nothing is creepier than Zionism” and said that anti-Islamist writers Brigitte Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali deserve an “a$$ whipping”, including vocalizing her wishes that she could have their “vaginas taken away” for their opposition to Sharia law:

Despite this, and more, Rabbis Barat Ellman and Ellen Lippmann argued In an op-ed for the Daily News, that “Linda Sarsour is a friend to Jews… Yes, Sarsour is an ardent critic of Zionism — which should come as no surprise for a Palestinian-American with relatives in Palestine. But she has been clear that it is right-wing Zionism — Zionism that dismisses Palestinian claims to a national identity or for statehood — that she vehemently opposes.”

In the past, Sarsour stated that she was “honored and privileged” to share the stage with convicted Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh who was deported from the United States for lying on her immigration papers about her past conviction for her involvement in the murder of two Israelis.
Meanwhile, Bland and Mallory, who served as co-presidents of the organization, will be formally replaced when the new board convenes for its first meeting this month, according to the Washington Post.
Mallory, who has her own controversial and allegedly anti-Semitic history, had attended a Nation of Islam event during which Louis Farrakhan — a known anti-Semite — made incendiary remarks about Jews. Bland reportedly joined Mallory and Perez in defending Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic language during a phone call with organizers, of the Women’s March.
In October, Farrakhan compared Jews to termites.
In a January appearance on PBS’s Firing Line, Mallory refused to acknowledge Israel’s right to exist. One month earlier, she told the New York Times that “white Jews … uphold white supremacy.” She later told a fellow activist Vanessa Wruble, a Jew, “that Jews [need] to confront their own role in racism.”
Also in December, Tablet Magazine reported that “Perez and Mallory allegedly first asserted that Jewish people bore a special collective responsibility as exploiters of black and brown people—and even, according to a close secondhand source, claimed that Jews were proven to have been leaders of the American slave trade.”
Bland reportedly denied that a conversation took place between Perez and Mallory in 2016 in which they said that Jews were the leaders of America’s slave trade and were responsible for exploiting black people.
In November, Teresa Shook, the founder of the Women’s March, called for Bland, Mallory, Sarsour, and Perez to resign in a Facebook post:
Founder of the @womensmarch calls for current leaders to step down for allowing “anti-Semitism, anti- LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist, hateful beliefs.“ https://t.co/gafiEEfX0e

“Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez of Women’s March, Inc. have steered the Movement away from its true course,” Shook wrote. “I have waited, hoping they would right the ship. But they have not. In opposition to our Unity Principles, they have allowed anti-Semitism, anti- LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist, hateful beliefs. I call for the current Co-Chairs to step down and to let others lead who can restore faith in the Movement and its original intent.”
Despite the change in leadership, it appears anti-Semitism could still be an issue for the group.
Samia Assed, a Palestinian American activist from New Mexico, who has been selected as part of the Women’s March’s new board has questioned Israel’s existence and declared it an illegitimate state:

Another new board member, Zahra Billoo — who serves as a civil rights attorney and executive director of the San Francisco Bay area chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) — has accused the U.S. and Israel of enabling terrorism:
The Women's March cut ties with their anti-Semitic board members and are now bringing in a whole slew of new anti-Semitic board members
One example is Zahra Billoo

East Virginia Medical School Spent $368,000 Investigating Ralph Northam Blackface Photo
The school still couldn’t determine whether or not Northam was the person in blackface.
Ralph Northam’s alpha mater spent $368,000 investigating the infamous blackface photo he appeared in, but still can’t definitely conclude that he was the individual wearing the racially charged costume.
East Virginia Medical School originally published the photo in their class of 1984 yearbook. The photo created a massive controversy surrounding Virginia Governor Ralph Northam when it was published by Big League Politics. Northam originally took responsibility for appearing in blackface, only to double back and claim he merely appeared on the same page of the yearbook.
A Freedom of Investigation Act request has revealed that EVMS began a lengthy investigation into the photo shortly after it was exposed. The Norfolk public school contracted a law firm called McGuire-Woods.
The law firm released a 55-page report detailing their conclusions, but didn’t definitively determine who exactly was in the blackface photo. It appears that EVMS is now obligated to pay the lawyers a whopping $368k for nothing at all, still left in the dark as to who appeared in blackface and the KKK costume.
It’s doubtful that even the fanciest and prestigious of Washington D.C law firms can nail down the concrete identities of people who appeared in yearbook prank photos from 20 or 30 years ago. But EVMS’s investigation could set a very profitable precedent for lawyers who want to seek work launching comprehensive investigations into something they can’t deliver on.
Meanwhile, Northam inexplicably continues to squat in office almost a year after admitting he wore blackface in a college yearbook photo. The Democrat has since adopted a consistent set of pro-diversity talking points, ignoring the reality that he’s far from qualified to do so.
Canada’s Justin Trudeau may want to seek advice from Northam, should he hope to weather his own blackface photo controversy.
