It took a victim of the brutality of ISIS to give Democrats a much needed reality check.
Democrats in Congress are desperate. It’s their liberal base that buys into the nonsense that any criticism of Islam is “Islamophobic” or racist (as if its possible to be racist against a religion). There’s one group of people you’ll never see try to justify Islamic extremism: its victims.
A former ISIS sex slave urged Congress Tuesday to more aggressively fight the terror group and offered her condolences for the massacre in Orlando, saying she’s not surprised by it.
Nadia Murad, a Yazidi who escaped captivity in 2014, told the Senate Homeland Security committee that “the USA must act. We must terminate Daesh (ISIS) and all such terror.”
“Daesh will not give up their weapons unless we force them to give up their weapons,” she testified, with the assistance of a translator. “The Yazidi people cannot wait.”
Murad called on the U.S. and other countries “to establish a safe and protected zone for Iraqi and Syrian religious minorities,” which President Barack Obama has repeatedly rejected.
She also expressed her condolences for the attack in Orlando that left 49 dead but said she was not surprised it happened.
What do you think? I hope this finally wakes them up – but I won’t keep my fingers crossed.
