US Senate Democrats again block Iran nuclear deal disapproval #IranDeal

Harry Reid

US Senate Democrats on Tuesday, for the second time in a week, blocked legislation meant to kill an Iran nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration and other world powers with Tehran.

With the voting continuing, there were 41 Democrats voting to block the measure to disapprove the Iran deal from advancing in the Senate, enough to deny Republicans the 60 votes they need in the 100-member Senate.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell staged the second vote in an attempt to lure at least a couple Democrats into voting for the resolution of disapproval.

McConnell also moved to arrange a third procedural Iran vote, possibly this week, on an amendment preventing Obama from lifting economic sanctions against Iran until that country’s government formally recognizes Israel’s right to exist and releases American citizens being held in Iranian custody.

It was not yet clear how Democratic votes would line up on that amendment.

Is your Congressperson a supporter of terror-linked CAIR?

CAIRvivi-viCAIR has made it easy to find who are the traitors in Congress, the representatives who would support CAIR (Council on Anti-American Islamic Relations) a Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas-linked front group and unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism funding case in America, that is working hard to turn America into a sharia-compliant state.

If your Representative is on this list, make sure all your friends and neighbors know about it.

“Illinois takes great pride in its vibrant Muslim community here in Chicago, and throughout the state. I salute the CAIR-Chicago chapter for their ongoing efforts to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.”. – Bobby L. Rush
U.S. Representative, 2nd Congressional District of IL

 

“I salute CAIR-Chicago for their commitment to justice and equality for Muslim Americans and all Americans. CAIR understands that in defending Muslim Americans against employment discrimination, prison abuse, hate crimes and citizenship delays they are also defending our American values for every American. Your unyielding commitment to justice, not only for the Muslim community, but for every member of our society is consistent with our nation’s core values.” 

– Danny K. Davis 
U.S. Representative, 7th Congressional District of IL

 

“CAIR-Chicago facilitates open lines of communication between different cultures and religions. Their efforts encouraging equality, enhancing cultural knowledge, and promoting justice are both admirable and necessary. The work that CAIR-Chicago does for our city and across the nation not only enriches the Muslim community but also expands the breadth of dialogue between cultures. I thank them for their efforts.”

– Mike Quigley
U.S. Representative, 5th Congressional District of IL
 

 

“CAIR-Chicago’s commitment to promoting tolerance and defending civil rights reminds us of the significant contributions American Muslims have made to our country. I would like to extend my gratitude to all CAIR-Chicago members for working together to support a new generation of leaders who will continue our mutual goal of guaranteeing equality and respect for all people. ”

– Tammy Duckworth
U.S. Representative, 8th Congressional District of IL
 

 

“This year’s theme, #HateFree, could not be timelier. The theme amplifies the notion that we must all work together, putting our differences aside to prosper as a nation. We are living in a time of intolerance of the Muslim faith, and we have a responsibility to display the true nature of Islam to our non-Muslim brothers and sisters. CAIR’s advocacy on behalf of our community is unparalleled, and its dedication to promoting equal justice while encouraging understanding and dialogue among all faiths is crucial. I am grateful that CAIR positively showcases American Muslim contributions to our great country.” 

– Andre Carson 
U.S. Representative, 7th Congressional District of IN

“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”

–Omar M. Ahmad, founder of Council on American-Islamic Relations (“CAIR”) July 4, 1998

“I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future… But I’m not going to do anything violent to promote that. I’m going to do it through education.”

–Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR

“Ultimately, we (Muslims) can never be full citizens of this country…because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country.”

–Ihsan Bagby, CAIR

“If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land.”

–Mustafa Carroll, CAIR-TX

“Report anti Islamic and anti Muslim content on the internet to appropriate authorities to take action to remove it and go after those who post it online and prosecute and take actions according to the Shariah ruling.”

–Faizan Syed, CAIR-St. Louis

“Did Mohammed order the killing of Jews? He didn’t order it. Sa’ad ibn Mu’aadh (RA) ordered that punishment. It was a correct one.”

–Dawud Walid, CAIR, via Twitter (6/4/12)
