House rejects proposal to study terrorist’s use of Islamic doctrines, Muslim congressman celebrates

Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Caliphate, is arrested by U.S. Capitol Police officers on Capitol Hill during a immigration rally in Washington, on Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2013.

The House on Friday rejected 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.
