house Bill H. Res. 37

Condemning The Paris Terrorist Attacks

Argument in favor

Terrorism is a global issue, and as a world leader the U.S. must stand with the people of France in their time of need.

Only if the Manchurian Muslim in the White House can be persuaded to utter either the words jihad, or Terrorism, or Islamism, which so far has been impossible.

Should have already been done and their entrance into our country stopped. When will you realize this isn't a good idea to bring in thousands?

This should have been done by the President, but he appears unable to confront terrorism head on, so, ok C0ngress do your duty.

Argument opposed

This resolution offers nothing concrete in the way of support for France. The emptiness of this Congressional sentiment is deafening.

Stop talking, do something about it. Condemnations are obvious formalities.

How about the Marines/Sailors murdered in Chattanooga, or Ft Hood. Note to POTUS: this is not work place violence, or because young Muslim boys cannot get jobs at McCamelburgers!

Stop wasting time on worthless gestures... Congress has critical issues to deal with with 18 TRILLION in debt being the top of the list.

What is House Bill H. Res. 37?

On January 7, 2015 two masked men attacked the offices of the French satirical weekly newspaper, Charlie Hebdo in Paris. The ambush killed 12 and wounded 11 more (plus the five others who were killed and another 11 wounded in related shootings). The principal motive for the attack is considered to be Charlie Hebdo’s depictions of the prophet Muhammad in its magazines — including an issue re-named “Charia Hebdo” with a cartoon Muhammad saying “100 lashes if you don’t die laughing.”


This resolution expresses the condemnation by the House of Representatives of those acts of terrorism in Paris. It mourns the deaths of the 17 people who were killed, and offers condolences to those who have been personally affected by these "cowardly acts".

Impact

U.S./France relations, those personally affected by the terrorist attacks in Paris, members of the House.

Cost of House Bill H. Res. 37
