Two Big Wins Against CAIR in 24 Hours

September 19, 2019
The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) suffered two defeats in 24 hours thanks to a flood of public protest. Clarion Project was among numerous groups to apply pressure on both issues, working with local activists in Minnesota and collaborating with organizational allies to underscore the danger of allying with Islamists who have no belonging in spheres of human rights and human dignity.
First, as Clarion reported, CAIR’s Minnesota chapter was slated to be part of a panel discussing hate crimes in St. Cloud, Minnesota alongside the Minnesota Department of Human Rights, the St. Cloud police chief, and a FBI supervisory special agent. The panel was postponed at the 11th hour due to tremendous outpouring of calls, emails and material support including articles and social media traction.
Some of the evidence against CAIR-Minnesota that swayed the outcome was executive director Jaylani Hussein’s hostile shutdown of a city council meeting, demonstrating disinterest in civil discourse.
Second, CAIR San Francisco’s executive director, Zahra Billoo, was voted out of her new appointment on the board position of the Women’s March. Billoo was one of many new board members brought on in the wake of Linda Sarsour’s removal. Again, immense public pressure and outreach reversed that decision.
Billoo quickly took to Twitter in the late hours of the night to flesh out a thread accusing the Women’s March of being influenced by “right-wingers.” She also cited blame on an Islamophobic smear campaign rather than the long sordid pubic record of her vile anti-American and anti-Semitic views.
Two stunning defeats against Islamists like CAIR in such a short window is a testament to what we can achieve if work together.
In the interim, we can activate our networks, team up across organizations and make sure the public is equipped with the information they need to apply public pressure.
