Zahra Billoo, who was dumped from the Women’s March for anti-Semitism, is soliciting donations online for her buddy Rashida Tlaib’s reelection campaign.

“Our ‘sheroe’ Rashida Tlaib is up for re-election! Can I get 20 of you to donate $25 today?” tweeted Zahra Billoo on Monday.
If Billoo’s name sounds familiar, that might be because she was unceremoniously booted from the Women’s March executive committee in September 2019 after just three days in the post.
Billoo received the appointment after former leaders Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, and Bob Bland were shown the door following their own anti-Semitism scandal
“In addition to those controversies, Sarsour pushes a blood-libel that makes Jews responsible for police shootings of unarmed black people,” The Algemeiner reported at the time.
Prior to the Women’s March booting Billoo, the Investigative Project on Terrorism exposed her “deep well of anti-Semitic rhetoric.”
The Algemeiner report from 2019 continued, “Billoo, who does not believe Israel should exist; who compares American Jews who move to Israel and join its army to ISIS terrorists; who casts those who don’t share her absolute rejection of Israel and its supporters as sellouts, lashed out at the Women’s March board in an overnight Twitter rant.”
Earlier in 2019, Billoo was exposed for her staunch opposition to dialogue with any organizations that maintain ties with Israel, blasting Muslims who work with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). She even volunteered to prepare a blacklist of organizations who work with the ADL and “half a dozen or so Muslim individuals who take their stages.”
An April 2019 Algemeiner article exposed Billoo for “support[ing] Palestinian terrorists attacking Israelis, and openly call[ing] for the destruction of the Jewish state, in a not-so-veiled threat: ‘From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.'”
Judging by the tweet on Monday, Tlaib is clearly not distancing herself from Billoo.
