NGO RESCINDS AWARD TO U.S. WOMEN'S MARCH DUE TO ANTISEMITISM: Social democrats accused US Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour of antisemitism. (BENJAMIN WEINTHAL, NOVEMBER 11, 2018, Jerusalem Post)

The think tank for the German social democratic party withdrew its Human Rights Award to the Women's March USA in Washington, DC, on Thursday because doctoral students associated with the foundation accused the organizers of the march of hardcore antisemitism and support of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign targeting the Jewish state.

"We believe that the Women's March USA does not meet the criteria of this award, as its organizers have repeatedly attracted attention through antisemitic statements, the trivialization of antisemitism and the exclusion of Zionists and Jews since Women's March USA's establishment in 2017. Women's March USA does not constitute an inclusive alliance," wrote members of the scholarship working group, called Critique of Anti-Semitism and Jewish Studies, from the Friedrich Ebert Foundation in a public letter.
