Zahra Billoo, executive-director of the San Francisco Bay Area branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-SFBA), spoke in a panel session at the American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) 14th Annual Convention for Palestine in Chicago over the past weekend.

She said that Muslims cannot trust mainstream Jews and Jewish organizations, like Hillel or synagogues - the Jews will sell them out every time. Muslims cannot be friends of Jews who want to make peace with Palestinians. 

Billoo declares that practically every Jewish organization in America is an enemy of Muslims. Not only that, but any organization that supports a two state solution is an enemy of Muslims. She doesn't call them out explicitly, but that includes J-Street, that includes Peace Now, that includes Breaking the Silence. And she explicitly says that Hillels, the ADL, the Jewish Federations and even essentially all synagogues in America are the enemies of Muslims. 

This is incitement for Muslims to hate Jews being spread publicly in Chicago.

You can see this pure antisemitism for yourself. (Taken from one of the sessions in the AMP YouTube page.)

We need to pay attention to the Anti-Defamation League. We need to pay attention to the Jewish Federation. We need to pay attention to the Zionist synagogues. We need to pay attention to the Hillel chapters on our campuses, because just because they are your friends today, doesn't mean that they have your back when it comes to human rights. 

So oppose the vehement fascist, but oppose the polite Zionist too. They are not your friends. They will not be there for you when you need them. They will take your friendship and throw your Palestinian brothers and sisters under the bus. Oh! You get along because you are all in Girl Scouts together? Talk to them about what is happening in Palestine, and see how that conversation goes.

And so, when we think about Islamophobia and Zionism, let's be clear about the connections. There is no difference between domestic policy and foreign policy when it comes to our human rights. There is no difference between domestic policy and foreign policy when it comes to those who seek to target us.

And so when we do our work here in the US us we have to work together, because they're working with or without us.

Now how do you fight back? Know your friends who actually has your back. Know that you can call American Muslims for Palestine.  And by the way, you should be a monthly donor to American Muslims for Palestine. Build it into your budget and forget about it. Make it your monthly contribution, because you are contributing to the apartheid monthly. It is a part of your budget. You are paying your taxes, so you should be giving money to AMP monthly.

Know your friends. Know that you can call CAIR if you face a boycott or legislation or something where you are being targeted for your views. Know that you can call CAIR where you should also by the way be a monthly donor because we will support you. We will file the lawsuit on your behalf and we will not charge you.

Know your JVP leadership, your SJP leadership,  your IfNotNow leadership, the list goes on. Know who is on your side. Build community with them, because the next thing i'm going to tell you is to  know your enemies. 

And I am not going to sugarcoat that, they are your enemies. There are organizations and infrastructures out there who are working to harm you. Make no mistake of it. They would sell you down the line if they could, and they very often do behind your back. I mean the Zionist organizations, I mean the foreign policy organizations who say they are not Zionists but want a two-state solution. I am not a Palestinian myself, but it is my understanding that that is laughable. So know your enemies.

Because it's the last time I'll talk to you this Saturday let me just tell you: Also know the Muslim organizations that  are out to harm you. Know the Muslim organizations that are not holding to their principles and hold them accountable, because they're doing it in your name. In some ways they are worse than the Zionists because at least the Zionists will tell you what they're out for but when Muslim organizations sell you out, they're doing it in your name. 

Be principled.

Those are AMP and CAIR "principles": treat all mainstream Jews as your enemy, treat the governments of the United States and Europe who want a two state solution as your enemies, treat the UAE and Egypt and Saudi Arabia who support peace plans that would allow Israel to exist as your enemy.

We see here that CAIR and AMP are extremist organization. There is no other way to describe them, unless their leaders condemn these words of hate that were greeted with audience applause and approval by the moderator.

This is bigotry. This is hate. This is incitement. This is antisemitism. And, in America today, this is considered acceptable discourse.
