“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”…and they should not pass a resolution for Muslims either. Obama has spent an inordinate amount of
jizya taxpayer time and money promoting Islam in the U.S. and abroad, as well as hiring Muslims specifically because they are Muslim. Enough already. Contact your elected officials and tell them to defend the other 99% of the U.S. population, not the 1% with a preponderance to despise and attack us. via Michigan U.S. reps call for Congress to reaffirm civil rights of Muslims | The American Independent.
Detroit Congressmen John Conyers and Hansen Clark, both Democrats, have asked Congress to counter a general climate of bias against the American Muslim community by passing a resolution affirming the civil rights of Muslims.
“We believe that this sense of Congress is a logical step toward sending the message that the American Muslim community should be able to enjoy the rights guaranteed under the Constitution to the same extent as all other Americans,” said Conyers and Clarke.
“Communities should be protected from the threat of violence and suspicion that, for example, was at the heart of last January’s thwarted attack against the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn, Michigan. They should also be able to rely on law enforcement’s fundamental integrity and respect for First Amendments protected rights.”
“Ultimately, the American Muslim community should be able to rely on the federal government to lead the effort in fostering an open climate of understanding and cooperation. Only through a balanced examination of the challenges facing the nation will we establish a strong policy framework for protecting security, while respecting the Constitution and the interests of affected communities.”
Meanwhile the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reaffirmed the rights of non-Muslims in the Islamic enclave of Dearborn, Michigan where the Arab police chief restricted the 1st Amendment rights of Christians. Where was Conyers when the rights of non-Muslims were being denied repeatedly in Michigan? Defending his corrupt, convicted wife?
Muslims in Michigan were recently given a leg up on other residents when it swore in a U.S. Attorney linked to pro-Hamas/Hizbollah groups.
Update: Muslim Congressman (yes, Ellison isn’t the only one) Andre Carson also signed Conyers letter.
