Keep in mind folks that from Jan. 2000 to Dec. 2005, my Congressional representation was from Jim Moran (D-VA). Just do a Google search with “Moran” and “controversy” and you’ll understand…..
Now, I have the utmost pleasure to be firmly planted in the 9th Congressional District with my outstanding Congresswoman Sue Myrick (R-NC). Not only is she a leader in cracking down on illegal immigration, but she now appears to be poised to be a Congressional leader on cracking down on Islamic terrorism.
Myrick has co-signed a letter with terror warhawk US Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) urging the US Department of Justice to withdraw its sponsorship of an upcoming conference by the Islamic Society of North America.
According to Myrick and Hoekstra’s letter….
ISNA’s roots in the Muslim Brotherhood and activities in support of HAMAS – designated by the U.S. as a terrorist group – should disqualify ISNA from DOJ outreach efforts to the Muslim community.
“In light of the threat that our nation, and the world in general, is currently facing from radical Jihadists, and because of the President’s commitment to fighting the War on Terror on all fronts, we believe it is a grave mistake to provide legitimacy to an organization with extremist origins, leadership and a radical agenda,” the representatives wrote in a letter dated Tuesday to the Attorney General’s office.
It continued, “Establishing a partnership with ISNA is exactly the wrong approach at this critical juncture in history, setting a precedent that radical Jihadists should be the conduit between the U.S. government and the American Muslim population, and we urge you to reconsider your decision to establish an official relationship with ISNA.”
Thank you, Congresswoman Myrick for standing up (again and again) for what is the RIGHT THING TO DO.
Why isn’t Speaker Pelosi joining the call against taxpayers’ money being used to put up a DOJ booth at a radical Islamic conference?
