... Yeah, we don't want to fund a study that might prove among other things, that the Koran influences Jihadists. After all, it would be so politically incorrect:
On July 13, Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) offered an amendment to H.R. 2810, which would have required the Secretary of Defense to “conduct two concurrent strategic assessments” on “the use of violent or unorthodox Islamic religious doctrine to support extremist or terrorist messaging and justification” in order to better understand the root of modern day terror at the hands of radical Muslims.
House Amendment 185 was defeated the following day, 208 to 217.
The usual suspects cheered the amendment’s defeat. Politico quotes Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN): “If you have an amendment that says we're going to study one religion and only one, we're going to look at their leaders and put them on a list — only them — and you are going to talk about what's orthodox practice and what's unorthodox, then you are putting extra scrutiny on that religion.”
Franks hit back, saying: “Right now, there is a certain spectrum within the Islamist world that is at the root of the ideological impulse for terrorism…Ironically, Muslims are the prime targets of these groups. To suggest that this is anti-Muslim is a fallacy, and I think that anyone who really understands it knows that.”
