House to vote on controversial study of Islam… usual suspects “offended”

The House is set to vote Friday on a controversial GOP proposal identifying “Islamic religious doctrines, concepts or schools of thought” that could be used by terrorist groups — something opponents say is unconstitutional and will lead to the targeting of Muslims.

The amendment, drafted by conservative Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), also calls for the Pentagon to identify Islamic leaders who preach peaceful beliefs versus those who espouse extremist views.

The proposal has drawn heavy criticism from Muslim lawmakers serving in Congress, Muslim interest groups and the American Civil Liberties Union, who say the proposal would unfairly target Muslims. They don’t trust the Trump administration to conduct the analysis.

    When you objective is the destruction of the country, of course you will be upset if some politicians want to protect the same country. Frankly, what is necessary is to remove Islam from the category of religion and place it where it belongs among the other totalitarian, supremacist ideologies with Communism.
