On a party-line 219 to 212 vote, the House on Tuesday passed the Combating International Islamophobia Act, which is co-sponsored by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Mogadishu). The bill calls upon the president to appoint a “special envoy” to fight “Islamophobia”; this envoy will head up a State Department that will monitor the phenomenon.
“The office,” says the Washington Post, “would record instances of Islamophobia, including violence against and harassment of Muslims and vandalism of their mosques, schools and cemeteries worldwide, in reports created by the State Department.” That’s fine, although it’s striking that there is no similar call for the State Department to create reports about violence against and harassment of Christians and vandalism of their churches, schools, and cemeteries worldwide, or violence against Hindus or any other religious group. Why the special treatment for Muslims? It can’t be because Muslims are uniquely the victims of persecution around the world; Christians are by far the most persecuted religious group.

What about "Israeliphobia" or "Jewphobia" (otherwise known as anti-Semitism)? No? Nothing? I figured, just thought I'd, you know, mention it.... It actually brings up another rather scary thought. Would Jews be considered "Islamophobic" just for being Jews? This could open the doors to much worse abuse and hate crimes against both Christians and Jews.
Technically she's breaking her own laws by being an Islamic woman of some influence. Women in Islam aren't even supposed to hold jobs, have basic rights, or even standard education, right?

That would be 5th District, Minnesnowtastan . . .

Is this law bordering on violation of the First Amendment?
