Two of the American Muslim community’s most notable anti-Semites recently teamed up for an online fundraiser benefiting the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) San Francisco chapter and a group called MPower Change.
Despite claiming to be advocates for the Palestinian cause, Sarsour and Billoo stake out extreme positions on Israel, those who support it, and even their own allies who engage in dialogue with pro-Zionist people.
The CAIR chapter is run by Zahra Billoo, who has defended Hamas rocket attacks against Israel and whose chapter’s website posted a graphic telling Muslims to build a “wall of resistance” to the FBI.
MPower Change co-founder Linda Sarsour famously tweeted “nothing is creepier than Zionism,” the idea of a homeland for Jews.
They are listed as co-sponsors of last month’s “#StandWithMuslims to Declare #NoMuslimBanEver” fundraiser that launched the day the U.S. Supreme Court upheld President Trump’s travel ban.
