    A controversy about Jewish insults is threatening to overshadow a mass march by American women.

    One of the organisers attended a rally with the Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakhan and has since refused to condemn the reverend's history of making anti-Jewish remarks.

    Although the march appears to be becoming a fixture on the US political landscape, some organisations and sponsors have pulled out of this weekend's event in the US capital.

    Al Jazeera’s Rob Reynolds reports from Washington, DC.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
