*** IMPORTANT LEGISLATIVE ACTION ALERT! ***

EXPRESS YOUR OPPOSITION TO THE VIRGINIA
GENERAL ASSEMBLY’S
COMMENDATION OF A 9/11 MOSQUE!


Just when we think we’ve heard it all, our elected officials manage to surprise us yet again.

The most recent example took place in the Virginia General Assembly, when the House and Senate Leadership allowed a resolution, (H.J. Res. 484) to come to the floor of each chamber that commends the Falls Church, Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center – an organization that has a long history of ties to multiple known and convicted terrorists – including the perpetrators of 9/11. And they allowed the resolution to be passed by “voice vote” – so there is no trace of how each legislator acted on the matter.

This unconscionable act rests squarely on the shoulders of the General Assembly’s Leadership who makes the decision about what legislation comes to the floor and how the votes are tallied. Shame on them.

Silence on this issue will send the message that outrageous acts like this are O.K. Loud and vocal opposition, however, will send quite another message: That this is unacceptable.

We feel the passage of H.J. Res. 484 rises to the level of national attention, because it demonstrates what happens when our elected officials – at best – are uneducated about important issues or – at worst – knowingly choose to commend the enemy in their midst.

This is why we are writing to you today. We need you to help us make it clear to the Virginia legislature – and to EVERY legislature – that endorsing terrorist-linked organizations is completely unacceptable.

*** IMPORTANT AND TIME-SENSITIVE ACTION ITEM! ***

Please take a moment today to either call or e-mail each member of the Virginia General Assembly Leadership to express your strong opposition to H.J. Res. 484.

We have written a sample call and e-mail script for you, to make this as easy as possible.

Click HERE TO CALL and click HERE TO E-MAIL.

Take just a few simple steps through our new grassroots advocacy tool, Engage, to create the roar of opposition that the Leadership of the Virginia General Assembly needs to hear.

Further, Engage will provide you with all the contact information you need to complete this task.


Then, please pass this e-mail along to everyone you know who has a problem with legislators who offer public endorsement of terrorist-connected institutions.

Thank you!

REMEMBER, YOUR VOICE COUNTS!
IF EACH OF US DOES JUST A LITTLE, TOGETHER WE CAN
ACCOMPLISH A LOT!
