Sue Myrick's plan to fight terrorism

U.S. Representative Sue Myrick has a ten point plan for fighting against jihad in the U.S.
Among other things, her plan calls for investigating military chaplains who were endorsed by Abdurahman Alamoudi, a Muslim chaplain convicted of funding terrorism. And since a whistleblower reported that some Arabic translators in the FBI cheered the 9/11 attacks, Ms. Myrick thinks the process for selecting Arabic translators should be investigated.

Since some officials of CAIR have been convicted on terror charges, Ms. Myrick thinks the non-profit status of CAIR should be reconsidered. She wants to make it treason to publish materials that call for the death of Americans. She wants to “Restrict religious visas for imams who come from countries that don’t allow reciprocal visits by non-Muslim clergy. She wants to “block the sale of sensitive military munitions to Saudi Arabia.”

Sounds like a reasonable, common-sense plan to me. So why is Jibril Hough of the Islamic Center of Charlotte opposing it as a fear campaign and “McCartyhism?” Don’t moderate Muslims want to stop terrorism too? Or could it be that some of these so-called “moderate” Muslim organizations are really just foreign-funded front organizations that are not so moderate after all?

Read Robert Spencer’s excellent article about all this on FrontPage.
