National leaders of the Women's March movement who are accused of deep-rooted anti-Semitism appeared to promote anti-Israel hate during a Women's March event in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.

What happened?

While speaking on stage, Linda Sarsour declared her support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, an international boycott that seeks to force Israel to comply with an anti-Israeli, pro-Palestinian agenda, which supporters hope includes Israel conceding many of its rights as a sovereign country.

"Anything from Medicare for all, to ending the war in Yemen, to standing up for free speech and our constitutional right to Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions in these United States of America," Sarsour screamed.

Women's March co-president Tamika Mallory nodded in agreement with Sarsour's declaration.

Bob Bland and Carmen Perez-Jordan, also leaders of the Women's March movement, stood by Sarsour's side as she delivered her remarks.

While the Women's March as a whole stands accused of promoting anti-Semitism, it is Mallory, specifically, who critics say is most guilty of bigotry, including associating with known anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan and refusing to affirm Israel's right to exist.

The accusations have led many Democratic and progressive organizations, including the Democratic National Convention, to withdraw their support for Women's March, while others have called on the movement's national leaders to resign.
