Democratic Senator Dick Durbin from Illinois has announced the US Congress is to hold its first hearings on the Civil Rights of American Muslims.
LM believes the Civil Rights of American Muslims would be a good thing if it actually existed however, sadly after the introduction of the so called Patriot Act, American Muslims have been treated like an Enemy of the State. However, to be fair to Senator Durban he is absolutely correct, with the spike in bigotry and hatred towards Muslims these hearings are long overdue and necessary.
Where does one start regarding the lack of respect for Muslims in America, how about the difficulty of flying while Muslim or perhaps this hate filled protest in Orange County not surprisingly organised by a Rabbi.
These Muslim Civil Rights hearings put into perspective the hate filled bile from Peter King's anti Muslim witch hunt. LM looks forward to the evidence which has to be irrefutable that American Christian and Jewish Extremists are peddling vile nasty hate directed at ordinary decent law abiding American Muslims. Who knows perhaps Katie Couric could be called to give evidence in view of her interesting suggestion to help combat anti Muslim hate.
