CAIR official Zahra Billoo mocks Muslims in U.S. military after praising jihad terrorists

“The U.S. Air Force formally granted Staff Sgt. Abdul Rahman Gaitan a religious waiver to don a beard in service. Gaitan is the first Muslim airman to receive such an accommodation. In response, Billoo mocked Muslims serving in the U.S. military, sarcastically tweeting: ‘Great news, MashaAllah [according to God’s will]. You can now rock your Sunnah beard while bombing your Muslim brothers and sisters.’”

Zahra Billoo is executive director of CAIR’s San Francisco Bay Area chapter. She not only has problems with Muslims in the U.S. military, but in 2015, she tweeted that she “struggles with Memorial Day each year” about whether to honor American soldiers who died in wars.” Now Billoo is mocking Muslims who serve in the U.S. military.

CAIR continues to be accepted in mainstream American society, despite the fact that the group is Hamas-connected and anti-American/anti-Western at its core. Billoo “labeled American Muslims in the military as traitors for participating in combat operations targeting terrorists in predominately Muslim-majority countries.” Billoo has also “glorified Palestinian ‘martyrs’ families’ whose relatives participated in a terrorist attack against Israelis” as “an act of resistance,” called Israel supporters “baby killers,” and stated that she was “more afraid of racist Zionists who support Apartheid Israel than of the mentally ill young people the FBI recruits to join ISIS.”

Billoo does not accept as Muslim leaders those who support Israel or oppose the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

“CAIR Official Mocks Muslims in U.S. Military After Praising Terrorists,” IPT News, November 27, 2018:

Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) official Zahra Billoo continues to judge Muslims who do not fall in line with her radical agenda.

Last week, Military.com reported that the U.S. Air Force formally granted Staff Sgt. Abdul Rahman Gaitan a religious waiver to don a beard in service. Gaitan is the first Muslim airman to receive such an accommodation.

In response, Billoo mocked Muslims serving in the U.S. military, sarcastically tweeting: “Great news, MashaAllah [according to God’s will]. You can now rock your Sunnah beard while bombing your Muslim brothers and sisters.”

Billoo, an attorney, leads CAIR’s San Francisco-Bay area chapter.

Instead of praising the U.S. military for overturning long standing practices to accommodate religious practices, Billoo basically labeled American Muslims in the military as traitors for participating in combat operations targeting terrorists in predominately Muslim-majority countries.

This sentiment is not surprising given Billoo’s history of defending terrorists. On Saturday, at an American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) conference, Billoo glorified Palestinian “martyrs’ families” whose relatives participated in a terrorist attack against Israelis – or as Billoo called it: “an act of resistance.”

“Even I don’t fully understand how horrible an apartheid Israel is doing,” Billoo said in a recording obtained by the Investigative Project on Terrorism. She was describing a recent trip to the Palestinian territories. “We hear here that the martyrs’ families are rewarded with homes and flowers and food. We learn that in Palestine that happens, because it doesn’t matter whether or not you approve of your teenager committing a crime. Whether or not it’s a crime is something we can debate. But it doesn’t matter whether or not you approved of it. The soldiers show up at your house the day after you lose child in an act of resistance. And they bulldoze your home. So of course, your community buys you a home.”

These are the views of a person who received a Community Builder Award last month, someone with a history of propagating radical Islamist and anti-Semitic remarks.

Earlier this month, Billoo openly stoked division by drawing a line in the sand by defining who she believes is a legitimate Muslim leader and who is not[.]

“I’m really cautious of who I call a Muslim leader,” Billoo said at a gathering with the Ecumenical Peace Institute, warning others to be aware “as you see countries in the Middle East, and even Muslim activists in the United States, take problematic positions supporting the state of Israel or opposing the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.”…..
