Senate Dems To Hold 'Islamophobia ' Committee Hearing

Apparently the word went out to DC from some well-connected Muslim Brotherhood fronts.

The Senate Democrats are holding hearings of their own to counter Rep. Peter King's hearings in the House Homeland Security Committee investigating radical Islam in America.

The subject if the Senate hearings? Islamophobia and violations of Muslim Civil rights.

The hearings will be chaired by Senator Dick Durbin ( D-IL) and will be the first ones held by the Judiciary Committee's new subcommittee on civil rights and human rights, which Democrats created this year.

Senate Majority Whip Richard J. Durbin, Illinois Democrat, announced the subcommittee hearing Tuesday,claiming there has been a spike in anti-Muslim bigotry in the last year that demands closer attention.

“Our Constitution protects the free exercise of religion for all Americans,” Durbin said. “During the course of our history, many religions have faced intolerance. It is important for our generation to renew our founding charter’s commitment to religious diversity and to protect the liberties guaranteed by our Bill of Rights.”

One curious factoid...according to the latest FBI statistics available, anti-Islamic hate crimes accounted for only 9.3 percent of the 1,376 religiously motivated hate crimes recorded in 2009, versus the 70.1 percent that were anti-Jewish.

One would think the Senators on a human rights committee would be much more interested in dealing with the overall clear majority of religiously motivated hate crimes in America, but perhaps some animals are more equal than others in their eyes.

I don't have figures for what percentage of the anti-Jewish hate crimes were committed by Muslims,but it would certainly be interesting to find out.

Although somehow, I have a feeling that the numbers are significant enough so that Senator Durbin and his friends would rather not be confronted with that information.

please helps me write more gooder!

Durbin is a shmuck. He always has been and he always will be. But watch the liberal Jews jump on the bandwagon to decry non-existent islamophobia and make light of the attacks on their own children especially if they are perpetrated by Moslems. For those they will blame Israel defending itself.

I think Israel & Palestinian tensions will end only when Islamic terrorism will ends.
