We knew THIS was coming. A Muslim Brotherhoold affiliated advocacy organization today called on the Tennessee General Assembly to formally rebuke one of its members who called for the removal of all Muslims serving in the military.

CAIR The Washington-based indicted and unindicted co-conspirators in terrorist funding activities, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), said Republican State Rep. Rick Womick made those “un-American” remarks at an “anti-Sharia” conference yesterday at which another speaker said American Mosques should not have First Amendment protections and have no right to exist. CAIR also called on state and national Republican Party leaders to repudiate Womick’s bigoted comments.
In a video posted here: RICK WOMICK ON PURGING MUSLIMS, Womick said, “Personally, I don’t trust one Muslim in our military.” “If they truly are a devout Muslim and follow the Quran and the Sunnah, then I feel threatened because they’re commanded to kill me.” When asked whether Muslims should be removed from the military, Womick answered, “Absolutely, yeah.”
“The Tennessee General Assembly must formally rebuke Representative Womick for defaming all members of the military –- including the thousands of Muslims who proudly serve our nation — and for sending a message of hate to the hundreds of thousands of Muslims serving alongside our troops in other nations,” said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper. “It was particularly offensive that Womick made his un-American remarks on Veterans Day.”
Earlier this year, CAIR called on state and national GOP leaders to repudiate a lengthy rhetorical attack on Islam and the Quran by Womick.
During a hearing of the Tennessee House Judiciary Committee, Womick claimed the proposed Material Support to Designated Entities Act was “not about religion,” then launched into a lengthy attack on Islam and its revealed text, ultimately comparing the faith to Nazism and white supremacy.
DNJ Womick said Saturday he has no opinion of what CAIR had so say. “They are a radical Islamic group,” said Womick, who fought as a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot in the first Gulf War to force Iraq’s military out of Kuwait in 1990-91. “Whatever they have to say, I choose to ignore.”
