Senate to meet on Pipes nomination

CAIR has learned that the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee will meet on Wednesday, July 23 to discuss the nomination of Muslim-basher Daniel Pipes to the board of the United States Institute of Peace (USIP).


The USIP is a federal taxpayer-funded institution created by Congress to promote the peaceful resolution of international conflicts. Its board of directors is appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate.

Daniel Pipes is regarded by many Muslims as the nation’s leading Islamophobe. His extremist views and lack of peace-making credentials disqualify him from serving on a board that seeks to promote peace and conflict resolution.

Without your immediate input, Pipes’ nomination could be approved.
