About 36 hours ago, Women’s March Inc. went from being a courageous, bold, empowering voice for women to magically transforming into a weak, corrupt, islamophobic organization that marginalizes minority women.
How did this overnight transformation happen?
The Women’s March board voted to boot off a recently added board member: Zahra Billoo of CAIR. So Zahra went on social media to blast the Women’s March and tear them down even though she was praising the Women’s March and celebrating her involvement with them less than four days ago!
Frankly, this has to be a joke.
Billoo and CAIR have spent 3 years praising and supporting the Women’s March, pushing the Women’s March onto the Muslim community. Now all of a sudden, one person loses her position and they realize how bad of a cause it is?
So, just to get the facts straight: According to Billoo, Sarsour, and CAIR, the Women’s March was great and perfectly fine for Muslims to support despite the:
– genitalia hats
– women literally celebrating and cheering for abortions
– drag queen dancing
– LGBT agenda dominating its entire platform
– extreme obscenity and nudity paraded as empowerment
BUT, now, we are told, the Women’s March is… bad? Not because of all those other things but because Zahra Billoo was given the boot?
“BUT Daniel, she was voted out because of Zionist pressure! She did nothing wrong!”
Well, the Women’s March board didn’t become pro-Zionist overnight, people. Billoo and Linda Sarsour have been fine working with the Women’s March folks despite that org’s open relationship with pro-Zionist elements. It was exactly their openness to Zionist influence that drove the majority of the board to kick Billoo (and Sarsour) out.
But that’s a very inconvenient truth for the activist feminist supporters of Sarsour and Billoo.
So, you’ll have to excuse me if I roll my eyes while Billoo, et al., pretend like they just yesterday realized how deeply in cahoots their precious Women’s March has been with Zionists.
Let me just note two things:
1. It’s interesting that Linda didn’t rebuke the Women’s March for their decision to get rid of Billoo. In fact, in her FB post, Linda kind of faults Billoo for not using the best wording in the tweets that got her in trouble (for the record, the tweets in question are not that bad imho).
2. The irony is that the Women’s March has been consistent here. They stuck by their principles in rejecting Billoo. But these Muslim activists have been the unprincipled ones, sacrificing Islamic values to be a part of this March (or in the case of Sarsour, actually co-founding the travesty).
Those who compromise Islam for Dunya will always lose.
The good news is, most likely CAIR won’t humiliate itself this year like it has in year’s past shamelessly promoting the Women’s March.
As Shaykh Saajid Lipham noted in response to all this, from Surat al-Furqan:
And the Day the wrongdoer will bite on his hands [in regret] he will say, “Oh, I wish I had taken with the Messenger a way. Oh, woe to me! I wish I had not taken that one as a friend. He led me away from the remembrance after it had come to me. And ever is Satan, to man, a deserter.”
