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.
