CAIR Officials on Memorial Day Wonder: Do Fallen Troops Really Merit Honoring?
Zahra Billoo says she “struggles with Memorial Day each year” because she doesn’t know : how to “balance being pretty staunchly anti-war while honoring those who died in the military?”
Not hard to believe, really. : I mean, she’s a self-proclaimed progressive and they have a hard time with deep thinking:
She also quoted another CAIR official, Dawud Walid, the executive-director of: CAIR’s: Michigan chapter, as questioning whether they should honor American soldiers that died in “unjust” wars and occupations.
That’s a direct insult to American soldiers currently serving in Afghanistan and those that have returned from Iraq, as CAIR officials consistently describe those wars with that terminology. Billoo quoted Walid as saying:
If you can’t read that, she retweeted, “If one dies in an unjust war in which we illegally invaded and occupied a sovereign nation, should that person be honored?”
She had no problem honoring: : Imam: Jamil al-Amin, “a member of the Black Panthers terrorist group and was convicted of murdering a police officer in 2000. He is also anti-American,: stating ‘if America doesn’t come around, we’re gonna burn it down,’ and ‘I say violence is necessary. It is as American as cherry pie.'”
So, killing cops is good. : Killing enemies of America?
That creates a struggle.
