Ryan Mauro: CAIR Official Stands By Memorial Day Criticism of US Troops

Ryan Mauro writes at The Clarion Project:

A top Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) official took time out of her Memorial Day weekend to stand by her opposition to honoring fallen U.S. soldiers on the holiday and specifically took aim at Muslim-Americans who serve in the U.S. military.

For the third year in a row, the executive director of CAIR’s San Francisco Bay Area chapter, Zahra Billoo, bashed the U.S. military on the holiday in which we are supposed to thank them for their sacrifices.

CAIR is a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity that was designated as a terrorist group by the United Arab Emirates in November. FBI wiretaps in 1993 reveal that CAIR was established to deceptively push the Islamist agenda. You can read more about CAIR’s background here.

Billoo stepped in hot water in 2014 when the Clarion Project broke the story about how she and other CAIR officials were suggesting that fallen U.S. soldiers shouldn’t be honored on Memorial Day. The result was major media attention and outrage from Muslims honoring Memorial Day.

She responded by retweeting a comment about supporting U.S. troops “who refuse service,” tweeting about U.S. “genocide,” rape within the military and accusing critics of sexism, racism and anti-Muslim bigotry.

On Memorial weekend last year, Billoo again slandered the U.S. military and said servicemen often “murder” innocent civilians. She also equated Israel with ISIS.
