That Was Quick: Women’s March Drops Anti-Semite It Brought in to Replace Its Other Anti-Semites

ust three days after she was added to the board of the Women’s March, the virulently anti-Semitic Zahra Billoo announced Thursday on Twitter that she has already been voted off the board. Billoo, Executive Director of the San Francisco Bay Area office of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-SFBA), blames (what else?) “an Islamophobic smear campaign led by the usual antagonists.” Of course. That must be it. It certainly can’t be because the Women’s March actually rejects anti-Semitism.

The proof of that is the fact that the Women’s March kept Linda Sarsour, a close friend of Billoo, and Tamika Mallory on their board for months after their anti-Semitic statements and actions were revealed. They finally dropped them last week, when the negative publicity had grown too intense, and immediately replaced them with Billoo, who, if anything, is even more anti-Semitic than Mallory and Sarsour. And now Zahra Billoo is only out because her anti-Semitism was publicly exposed. The same can be said of Sarsour and Mallory. If they hadn’t been exposed, they would still be there. It isn’t as if the Women’s March has suddenly decided to reject the increasingly mainstream anti-Semitism of the Left.

But predictably enough, Billoo blames “Islamophobia” and sees the whole thing as a dark conspiracy by “Islamophobes” who “have long targeted me, my colleagues, and anyone else who dares speak out in support of Palestinian human rights and the right to self-determination.”

There couldn’t be a clearer acknowledgment of the fact that the struggle for “Palestinian human rights and the right to self-determination” is really a hateful and ruthless campaign against the very existence of the State of Israel. For all those who noted the implications of Billoo’s presence on the Women’s March board did was quote her saying, among other things, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” This familiar call is a declaration that “Palestine” must be liberated from Israeli rule from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, which would mean the total destruction of Israel and a new genocide of the Jews. That is apparently what Zahra Billoo means by “Palestinian human rights and the right to self-determination.”
