Anti-American Islamist Zahra Billoo is set to replace Linda Sarsour as a board member in the Women’s March movement. The move comes as the Women’s March replaced three original leaders after anti-Semitism accusations the movement could no longer ignore.

Writer Peter D’Abrosca summarized it best in the headline to his article that reads: 

After kicking out original board members Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour, the Women’s March welcomed 16 new board members, one of whom is the notoriously hateful Zahra Billoo.

Billoo serves as a civil rights attorney and executive director of the San Francisco chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). 

Linda Sarsour was a bad choice. Zahra Billoo is worse. 

Billoo usually makes a splash every Memorial Day with her controversial tweets against American soldiers. In the past, she tweeted she “struggles with Memorial Day each year” and whether to honor American soldiers who died in wars. She has a history of tweets depicting the U.S. military as “occupiers” and “murderers.” 

However, Zahra Billoo had no problem honoring “black liberation soldiers” like the Black Panthers. Specifically, Billoo was referring to Jamil al-Amin, a member of the Black Panthers convicted of murdering a police officer in 2000.

Al-Amin also said,  “When we begin to look critically at the Constitution of the United States … we see that in its main essence it is diametrically opposed to what Allah has commanded.”

Billoo has a history of praising the terrorist group Hezbollah. In a 2009 tweet she wrote, “AH [All Hail] for Hezbollah having the courage to do what the Arab governments won’t.”

She has likened the anti-Semitic terrorist group Hamas to a victim of rape, implying her support of Hamas rockets being fired into the civilian population of Israel.

In 2009, she casually tweeted that she was listening to a sermon of the noted anti-Semitic hate preacher Louis Farrakhan while at the gym. Farrakhan regularly calls Jews “Satanic” and claims  they “control everything and mostly everybody.” He most recently likened them to “termites” and led a “Death to America” chant on a visit to Iran.

Billoo, much like other CAIR executives, has a history of launching vitriolic attacks against dissenting Muslims whose views she doesn’t share. 


As for Linda Sarsour, her role with the Women’s March came with acceptance of secular views rejected by practicing Muslims, including a pro-abortion position the March forced women to accept if they wished to be part of the collective.

Shortly before her departure from the Women’s March became public, Sarsour announced she would join the Bernie Sander’s 2020 presidential campaign as a surrogate

How do we make sense of this? By understanding that nothing has transformatively changed.

The chairs have just been switched around on the deck, but it is still the same deck on the same sinking ship that is Islamist supremacism — and it’s “locked and loaded” for the 2020 political battle.

This means that those of us on the “other side” need to do the same. We also need to remember that at its core, Islamism has no ideological basis other than being a reaction to colonialism. In recent years, Islamism has had to barter and borrow from socialist propaganda in order to gain relevancy — which is why we see it aligning with far Left politics. 

Islamist supremacy cannot stand on its own, and it will not withstand the torch of inquiry critical Muslim thought brings.
