The Palestinian-American activist announced that she would be leaving Twitter for a few days after facing backlash for promoting a tweet about the IDF Surfside rescue mission.
The call comes a week after the Biden campaign affirmed its rejection of BDS and asserted that Sarsour has no role in the campaign.
“If Linda Sarsour is the face of the Democrat Party, ” the Republican Jewish Coalition said, “then the Democrat Party has truly become the party of antisemitism and too toxic for American Jews.”
“The Democratic Party is not perfect, but it is absolutely our party [at] this moment,” Sarsour said at the National Democratic Convention on Monday.
US Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, who has faced accusation of antisemitism and is known as a fierce critic of Israel, was strongly criticized for the tweet.
Tlaib was wearing the shirt, which depicts the whole of Israel as Palestine, while promoting Linda Sarsour's new book.
Over 9,000 Americans have signed a petition calling on 120 members who recently wrote letters of support to CAIR to renounce their backing, arguing that they cannot also be against racism.
"This political stunt gets us no closer to peace or justice. As a member of Congress, I consider it a non-starter," tweeted Tlaib.
There are plenty of reasons why I — and many other feminists — question the relevancy of the 2020 Women’s March that have nothing to do with antisemitism or anti-Zionism.
In a statement, CAMERA slammed the inclusion of Sarsour on the list, and accused Elle's editors of publishing a piece without thoroughly vetting it.
