Are you ok with laws against anti semitism, cause it sounds similar to laws that already exist.

Now hold on, let me edit that for you on how it should read.

[e]
H.Res.707 - Condemning all forms of anti-Semitism and rejecting attempts to justify anti-Jewish, anti-arab, anti-Christian (religion), anti-Amharic(language) hatred or violent attacks as an acceptable expression of disapproval or frustration over political events in the Middle East or elsewhere.'


The Jews are not the only Semitic peoples on Earth, nor do they even represent the largest number. Let noone ever attempt to put them on a throne on the highest mountain as if they are the heirs to God's kingdom above anyone else, even if the Talmud teaches that all non-Jews or Gentiles are like dogs or asses, to be exploited and treated inferior to Jews. I mean technically, even Muslims and Christians could fall under Semites regardless of nationality or language.

But anyways, on topic insofar that it is only a public relations piece of condemnation, it does not bother me, so long as all of the Semites are inluded

Simple Resolutions

A matter concerning the operation of either the House of Representatives or Senate alone is initiated by a simple resolution. A resolution affecting the House of Representatives is designated “H.Res.” followed by its number. They are not presented to the President for action.

I thought it'd be something more draconian, but it appears that this is just a feel good measure.

I love how you added your own thoughts to the HR quote there. According that resolution they are talking about Jews in particular.

I dont like any religion having special laws put in place for them, regardless of if it has teeth or not. its a precedence we cannot allow to be set.
It either encompasses every single religion, belief system, etc..or none and falls under general law...you dont single a single religion out.

I mean right, but if they are going to use the term anti-semite, it is redundant to bring up jews exclusively. I mean thanks to that lobby, many Americans think Jews are the only Semites, and deserve to be placed on a throne. Yes those are my additions, which is why I bolded them, perhaps I should have been more clear originally. For a resolution to be exclusively for Jews, then they should leave out the term 'anti-semitic' . This Muslim resolution did not use that term, and neither do resolutions in favor of Christians. It just upsets me because the Israel lobby clearly tries to use that term exclusively for their people, and by doing so are attempting to perhaps guide history, and mislead the American population in general into believing that rhetoric and completely sideline the billions of other Semitic people of Earth. I just feel it is misleading, and likely intentionally so.

Either way though, neither resolution really offends me, as they are purely for public relations and have no bearing on codifying law.

Are you sure about that? I've never had a Muslim stop at my front door to ask if I would like to talk about the Q'ran. The good word of Jesus appears at my door every few weeks though. Not terribly passive is it? The whole myth of Christian persecution is just that... A myth. Nobody is doing away with Christmas in a country where ~77% identify themselves as Christian.

According to open secret. Org

This is his main donner

en.m.wikipedia.org...

One of the largest law firms in the world with offices in the Middle East. With an office in the UAE.

All the good liberal groups say that the UAE's laws are evil. The lash people, kill the gays, women are second class citizens and so on.
So now the liberal groups will call Americans evil for pointing these facts out.....

This is the first step toward making Islam the World Religion, its aggressive and persistent in its recruiting whereas Christianity is passive and in decline.

Mark my words within 50 years this Planet will be Islamic only ! Christmas is being phased out and next will be Easter.



Perhaps it's Karma biting Christianity in the ass for past sins????

Did you not read the part where I said everyone should have the right to live peacefully in the United States regardless of religion?

Or where I said that I believe laws should be written to address ALL American citizens, regardless of faith?

How do you feel about this?

H.Res.707 - Condemning all forms of anti-Semitism and rejecting attempts to justify anti-Jewish hatred or violent attacks as an acceptable expression of disapproval or frustration over political events in the Middle East or elsewhere.'


Not having known about it previously, I believe it falls directly under the same tent I've already propped up with my opening statement.

Laws should be written to address the concerns of ALL American citizens. We *all* deserve the same rights.

This is not a law. All laws already apply equally to all people.

This is a resolution denouncing actions and language towards Muslims.

I do not know of any resolutions denouncing actions and language toward Christians. We should be covered under this as well it should not be limited to just Muslims.

We need work on jobs, economy, war, banking and a long list of other subjects. We get a "be nice to a religion" item.

Thanks Congress, keep up the important work.

If you weren't so caught up in the "but what about me!" pitty party, you'd have read that I said ALL AMERICANS DESERVE THE SAME RIGHTS...AND THAT NO ONE AMERICAN'S RIGHTS SHOULD ECLIPSE ANOTHERS

But, hey...enjoy that persecution complex.

Want any of these nails I've got?

Really....

Try following the link and reading it before bellyaching. It is a PR feelgood stunt, a resolution.

Not a law.
