Delaware senator calls Koran reading on Senate floor “despicable”

Source: Delaware senator’s anti-Muslim comments draw rebuke

Comments that state Sen. Dave Lawson, R-Marydel, made about Islam on the floor of the chamber Wednesday led to a rare rebuke from the chamber’s chief member and sparked a brief but fierce discussion about religious freedom.

“We just heard from the Quran, which calls for our very demise,” Lawson said after a Muslim duo gave the invocation, including a passage from their holy text. “I fought for this country, not to be damned by someone that comes in here and prays to their God for our demise. I think that’s despicable.”

Lawson served in the Air Force and did a tour in Vietnam. He addressed his colleagues on the floor of the Senate.

Tarek Ewis, imam of the Masjid Isa Ibn-e-Maryam mosque in Newark, and Naveed Baqir, executive director of the Delaware Council on Global and Muslim Affairs, were invited to give the Senate invocation.

Lawson and Sen. Colin Bonini, R-Dover South, stepped out of the chamber for the prayer. They re-entered when the speakers had finished, and Lawson gave a brief speech, saying he “took great exception” to the reading from the Quran.

After Lawson’s comments, the Senate proceeded as normal, debating and passing several bills. But before the chamber adjourned later in the evening, President Pro Tempore David McBride, D-New Castle, halted, saying he felt “there is complicity in remaining silent.”

“I have never been of the mind to censure the words of other members, but I also believe deeply that words have consequences,” McBride said, reading aloud from a statement. “To criticize the sacred prayer of another religion from the floor of the Senate strikes me as antithetical to everything we ought to stand for as lawmakers.”

Baqir called Lawson’s comments “textbook Islamaphobia.”

Baqir said he hoped to have a sit down with Lawson to explain more about the Muslim faith.

Sen. Bonini said afterward that he does not think Lawson is Islamaphobic.

“Anybody who knows Dave knows that there is not an ounce of hate in him,” he said. “There is not an an ounce of hate in me either.”

Still, Bonini said, “Religious freedom is not a one-way street; it is a busy intersection.”

“You have a right to pray, as do I,” Bonini said after McBride’s response. “And I have a right to be offended by what you believe, just as you have a right to be offended by what I believe.”

Bonini said neither his nor Lawson’s walkout nor their comments were intended to “be specifically disrespectful to the people who are here.”

McBride went on to say that Muslims serve in the military and as police and are doctors, professors and teachers.

Afterward, Lawson said he thought McBride was “ignorant to what’s going on.”

He said the Quran includes passages about killing “infidels” and pointed to some majority-Muslim countries that restrict women’s rights and persecute Christians, among other evils.

“Their belief flies in the face of our Constitution,” Lawson said afterward. “This is not our Bible, we should not be allowing them to pray from that book in our house, just as I do not believe I would be allowed to pray from my Bible in their house.”


There is complicity in remaining silent. Unfortunately, as normal, Democrats like David McBride are on the wrong side of history.

He welcomes with open arms the reading of the Koran which precipitates slave markets in Libya, gay concentration camps in Chechnya and throws them off rooftops in Syria, endless terror attacks on civilians in European states, Muslim refugees who rape American girls, and church bombings in Egypt.

McBride is complicit. Baqir is a textbook stealth jihadist.

  1. I am unable to understand how people reject the fact that Islam is a ideology and is not a religion. No religion would ever promote the thought and practice of killing people of another Faith. And this is what Islam does. Millions of us understand this and yet we have members of Senate and Congress who refuse to accept these facts. My only conclusion is that they are ignorant of Islam and are too pompous to open their minds to be educated to Islam, or they are on the side of Islam and the Islamic ideologies which bring terrorism and death to those who do not conform and follow Islam.

  2. I would argue that the person or persons who thought it was appropriate to invite Tarek Ewis, imam of the Masjid Isa Ibn-e-Maryam mosque in Newark, and Naveed Baqir, executive director of the Delaware Council on Global and Muslim Affairs, onto the Delaware Senate chamber floor to give the Senate invocation needs to be questioned as to their motive and perhaps investigated for treason against our Constitution.

    The comments that state Sen. Dave Lawson, R-Marydel, made about Islam on the floor of the chamber Wednesday were more than appropriate and in line with his obligation to protect our Constitution and Bill of Rights from threats foreign and domestic…sharia.

    President Pro Tempore David McBride, D-New Castle demonstrated his total ignorance of the existential threat that the Islamic theocracy, manifested by Muslims, poses to our nation when he stated “To criticize the sacred prayer of another religion from the floor of the Senate strikes me as antithetical to everything we ought to stand for as lawmakers.”

    Furthermore, the typical knee-jerk comments made by Naveed Baqir, executive director of the Delaware Council on Global and Muslim Affairs, that Senator Lawson’s comments were “textbook Islamaphobia” is right out of the Muslim playbook – by immediately launching personal ad hominem attacks on the person’s motives or character rather than the policy or position they maintain. In this particular case Naveed Bar chose to use the “textbook Islamaphobia” weapon against Senator Lawson!!

    What is “textbook Islamaphobia” anyway and why did Naveed Baqir choose to use it? First of all, to set the record straight, the term “Islamophobia” is an oxymoron, so for anyone who understands the modus operandi of Islam the term is ridiculous in the extreme and makes no sense at all. Second, it has been reported by a former member of the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), Abdur-Rahman Muhammad, during an interview that “This loathsome term (Islamophobia) is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliche conceived in the bowels of Muslim think tank for the purpose of beating down critics. In an effort to silence critics of political Islam (jihad), his fellow advocates needed to come up with terminology that would enable them to portray themselves as victims. Muhammad said he was present when his allies, meeting at the offices of the IIIT in Northern Virginia in the early 1990s, coined the term “Islamophobia.”

    Let me repeat what Abdur-Rahman Muhammad admitted, so that it sinks in, “This loathsome term (Islamophobia) is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliche conceived in the bowels of a Muslim think tank (IIIT) for the sole purpose of beating down critics. In an effort to silence critics of political Islam (jihad), his fellow advocates needed to come up with terminology that would enable them to portray themselves as victims.” So there you have it, by invoking the term “textbook Islamaphobia” in his ad hominem attack against Senator Lawson, Naveed Baqir was attempting to portray himself and Islam as having been “victimized” by the good Senator.

    Afterward, Senator Lawson was correct when he said he thought McBride was “ignorant to what’s going on.” Senator Lawson went on to accurately state that “the Quran includes passages about killing “infidels” and pointed to some majority-Muslim countries that restrict women’s rights and persecute Christians, among other evils. Their belief flies in the face of our Constitution,” Lawson said afterward. “This is not our Bible, we should not be allowing them to pray from that book in our house, just as I do not believe I would be allowed to pray from my Bible in their house.”

    Kudos to Senator Lawson for keeping it real and standing up against the Islamic stealth jihad!
