Susan Sarandon was sharply criticized by a Muslim American writer after the actress said fearful American Jews were now getting a "taste of what it feels like to be a Muslim" in the United States.
At a pro-Palestinian rally in New York City on November 17, Sarandon called for protesters to listen and have conversations with Jewish Americans, as many have said they don't feel safe because of the rise in antisemitism since the October 7 Hamas terror attack.
She remarked, "There are a lot of people that are afraid, that are afraid of being Jewish at this time, and are getting a taste of what it feels like to be a Muslim in this country, so often subjected to violence." Sarandon, like several other celebrities, has called for a cease-fire in Gaza, and condemned the deaths of Palestinian children in the Middle East conflict.
Muslim American writer and education activist Asra Nomani strongly disagreed with Sarandon's comments about Muslims living in fear in the United States.Read more on foxnews.com
