Senate Dems Counter to Rep Kings Hearings on Radicalization of U.S. Muslims: Hearings on Muslims Rights

Due to the increase of Muslim hate crimes Sen Durbin feels the need to hold hearings on their rights.

Just weeks after House Republicans held a hearing looking at the dangers of radical Muslims in the U.S., Senate Democrats are countering with a hearing of their own, scheduled for after Congress returns from a 10-day vacation, to examine Muslims' civil rights.

Senate Majority Whip Richard J. Durbin, Illinois Democrat, announced the subcommittee hearing Tuesday, saying there has been a spike in anti-Muslim bigotry in the last year that demands closer attention.

“Our Constitution protects the free exercise of religion for all Americans,” Mr. Durbin said. “During the course of our history, many religions have faced intolerance. It is important for our generation to renew our founding charter’s commitment to religious diversity and to protect the liberties guaranteed by our Bill of Rights.”

Funny, Sen Durbin didn't see the need to hold a hearing on anti-Jewish hate crimes even though they account for the highest percentage of all hate crimes.
