Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Isis November 19, 2015
Thomas Carper, D-DE
"My guess is—and this was confirmed by most of our witnesses today—that the folks who most likely want to be a homegrown jihadist, be affiliated with ISIS, and do their job here in this country as opposed to over in Syria want to be on the winning side. They are not interested in affiliating with a loser. So the question is, What can we do to make sure that ISIS is degraded and destroyed?"
Syrian Refugees November 19, 2015
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"Obama prefers not to dwell on the distinction between the jihadist treatment of Muslims, on the one hand, and of Christians, Jews, and other religious, on the other hand, because he—like much of Washington—inhabits a world in which jihadists are not Islamic and, therefore, have no common ground with other Muslims … notwithstanding that jihadists emerge whenever and wherever a population of sharia-adherent Muslims reaches critical mass. While there is no question that ISIS will kill and persecute Muslims whom it regards as apostates for refusing to adhere to its construction of Islam, it is abject idiocy to suggest that Muslims are facing the same ubiquity and intensity of persecution as Christians."
Isis Crisis November 18, 2015
Steve Russell, R-OK
"Young Yazidi girls, whose only crime was being born, have been forced into sodomistic, sexual slavery by a Godless, evil, twisted brand of Islamist jihadist ideology that also conveniently fits rape and child molestation into a twisted, sinister form of ethics."
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Continued November 18, 2015
John Cornyn, R-TX
"Perhaps most concerning—and it is all concerning—is a serious threat we face at home from a jihadist who is already living here on U.S. soil. Most of the people who carried out the attacks in France were born and grew up in Belgium. Some of them immigrated, one under a fake Syrian passport, apparently. But we need to be concerned about homegrown radicalized terrorists, radicalized by ISIS or like-minded groups via the Internet. In Texas, we have seen this firsthand—the so-called homegrown threats that occurred at Fort Hood in 2009 and in Garland, TX, earlier this year."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Environmental Protection Agency November 17, 2015
Daniel Coats, R-IN
"Consider his response yesterday to the tragic events in Paris versus the response of the French President. The French President, Francois Hollande, said: France is at war. We are in a war against jihadist terrorism, which is threatening the entire world."
