Action Alert: Urge Senators to Oppose Iraq Troop Escalation

Action Alert: Urge Senators to Oppose Iraq Troop Escalation



(WASHINGTON, D.C., 1/29/2007) - CAIR is asking members of the American Muslim community and other people of conscience to urge their senators to support a resolution (Senate Concurrent Resolution 2) in the U.S. Senate opposing an escalation in our nation's military involvement in Iraq. Debate on this and other Iraq resolutions is expected on the Senate floor this week.

The non-binding resolution, introduced by Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chair Joseph Biden, also expresses the sense of Congress that "greater regional and international support would assist the Iraqis in achieving a political solution and national reconciliation" and "the United States should transfer, under an appropriately expedited timeline, responsibility for internal security and halting sectarian violence in Iraq to the government of Iraq and Iraqi security forces."

This past weekend tens of thousands of anti-war protestors rallied in Washington, D.C.

Minuteman: ‘I View Islam as the Scourge of the Earth’

Minuteman: 'I View Islam as the Scourge of the Earth’

Philadelphia Inquirer

Its border-control campaign was born a year after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks with the Tombstone (Ariz.) Militia, which evolved into the national Minuteman Civil Defense Corps. The mission of the controversial organization - and of loosely allied groups such as Ryan's - is to keep out illegal immigrants it believes could be terrorists, drug traffickers or disease carriers and who depress U.S. wages, founder Chris Simcox says. . .

Last April, at the group's monthlong Minuteman Project, 1,200 volunteers converged along 23 miles of the Arizona border and reported 200 attempted crossings to the U.S. Border Patrol, Simcox said. Their role is reconnaissance, he said. The Minutemen do not become physically involved. . .

Monitors from the Southern Poverty Law Center have reported the presence of self-declared white supremacists at Minuteman border events. Simcox acknowledges that he sent a half-dozen groups home last year. . .

"It really burns me," said Frank Shiery, 47, whose wife had to wait nine months to emigrate from China on a fiancee visa.

But that's not the main reason the martial-arts instructor, from Willow Grove, will patrol the Canadian border from a Mohawk reservation in New York next month. He fears Islamic terrorists.

"I view Islam as the scourge of the earth," Shiery said. "It is pure unadulterated evil."
