American political activist and former executive director of the Arab American Association of New York, Linda Sarsour, has been accused of allegedly enabling sexual assault and harassment against Asmi Fathelbab. Fathelbab was a former employee of the Arab American Association and worked for Sarsour at the organization in 2009.

Fathelbab thought that since Sarsour was a woman activist she would understand her and so Fathelbab intimated Sarsour about groping, improper behavior and touching. Sarsour was then the executive director of the Arab American Association. Sarsour, Fathelbab claims, rather than supporting her threatened her with legal action if at all she went public with the claims. It is also alleged Sarsour body-shamed Fathelbab for coming up with what she said were false allegations.

Fathelbab claimed that in 2009 a man called Majed Seif kept stalking her. Seif lived in the very building where the Arab American Association offices were located.

According to a report in the Daily Caller, Fathelbab said: "He would sneak up on me during times when no one was around, he would touch me, you could hear me scream at the top of my lungs. He would pin me against the wall and rub his crotch on me."

Talking to the Daily Caller, Fathelbab explained that since the accused was "always at the mosque" he was considered to be a "good Muslim" and her allegations against him were dismissed.

"She oversaw an environment unsafe and abusive to women. Women who put [Sarsour] on a pedestal for women’s rights and empowerment deserve to know how she really treats us," Fathelbab said.

"It was disgusting. I ran the youth program in the building and with that comes bending down and talking to small children. You have no idea what it was like to stand up and feel that behind you. I couldn’t scream because I didn’t want to scare the child in front of me. It left me shaking," she added.

She added that Seif had the permission to be anywhere in the building.

"She told me he had the right to sue me for false claims," Fathelbab claimed.

After repeated attempts to convince Sarsour of the allegations against Seif, and receiving no positive response, Fathelbab decided to knock on the doors of Ahmed Jaber, who was the president of the board of directors at the organization.

Here too she claims she was humiliated and insulted. "Jaber told me my stalker was a 'God-fearing man' who was 'always at the Mosque,' so he wouldn’t do something like that," Fathelbab claims. "He wanted to make it loud and clear this guy was a good Muslim and I was a bad Muslim for 'complaining.'"

Fathelbab told the Daily Caller: "She [Sarsour] told me I’d never work in New York City ever again for as long as she lived."

"She’s kept her word. She had me fired from other jobs when she found out where I worked. She has kept me from obtaining any sort of steady employment for almost a decade," she added.
