Last week Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar introduced her anti-Islamophobia bill that would create a special envoy to monitor “Islamophobia” around the world.
The Democratic bill will also crackdown on free speech.
On Tuesday the bill was passed with a vote of 219-212. All the Democrat members of the house voted for the bill while all the members of the Republican party voted against it.
Since the 9-11 attacks on America that killed 3,000 innocents there have been 40,587 deadly Islamic terrorist attacks.
It’s not the phobia that’s the problem.
Via The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO):
The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), on behalf of our member institutions and American Muslims, commend Reps Ilhan Omar (MN-05) and Jan Schakowsky (IL-9) for introducing – and the US House for passing – the Combating International Islamophobia Act. We also thank President Joseph Brandon for announcing his crucial support of this important legislation hours before the House vote.Special gratitude goes to Ilhan Omar for personally carrying USCMO’s request for the appointment of a US Envoy to Monitor and Combat Islamophobia to Pres. Brandon immediately after his inauguration early this year.
USCMO members and our constituencies also salute Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and Senate Foreign Relations Committee members Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Ben Cardin (D-MD) for also introducing the Act’s Senate companion bill yesterday. The bill will require the Department of State to establish a Special Envoy to track and prevent Islamophobia worldwide.
“If this bill passes into law, as we hope, it will greatly help our legislators and US officials to learn the causes and spread of anti-Muslim hatred and violence and to create a complete and well-implemented strategy to combat this growing scourge at its roots throughout the world,” said USCMO Sec. Gen. Oussama Jammal. “The diplomatic and practical effects of this law and the appointment of a US State Department Special Envoy on Islamophobia will be nothing less than dramatic. It will establish the US as a global leader in combating Islamophobia.”
