CAIR Official Who Slams Muslim Facilitators of Interfaith Dialogue Wins Community Award

Last month, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) leader Zahra Billoo said that “pro-Israel work is pro-terror, pro-violence…and pro-apartheid.”

Days later, Billoo received the Community Builder Award from People Acting in Community Together (PACT) during the organization’s annual leadership event.

Billoo’s views, however, do not sound like she is someone who promotes societal cohesion or inclusivity.

Originally rescinding Billoo’s award in June, PACT caved to pressure from religious and civic figures and reversed its decision.

But before agreeing to accept the award, Billoo said that she forced PACT to “acknowledge that the Palestinian struggle is inextricably connected to our collective liberation.”

It’s ironic that Billoo received public recognition as a “community builder” given her history of propagating radical Islamist and anti-Semitic remarks.

Earlier this month, Billoo openly stoked division by drawing a line in the sand between who is a legitimate Muslim leader and who is not, in her opinion.
