Female lawmaker unafraid to slam 'Islamic savages'
'I've had enough of terrorists who oppress women and burn people alive'

A California assemblywoman is refusing to back down after fellow lawmakers and the Council for American Islamic Relations, or CAIR, have demanded she apologize for what they’re calling a “hateful” message she posted on Twitter.
On Feb. 10, after confirmation that American humanitarian aid worker Kayla Mueller was killed by the Islamic State, Republican Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez of Lake Elsinore sent out a tweet calling the murder “gut wrenching”:
Her use of the hashtag “#standupagainstIslam,” however, has some people up in arms.
Basim Elkarra, executive director of CAIR in Sacramento, characterized the hashtag as “hateful” and called on Melendez to apologize.
“It’s one thing to stand against terrorists,” he told the Sacramento Bee, “but to stand against Islam, the faith of 1.6 billion people worldwide, is another.”
CAIR representative Haroon Manjlai used almost the same talking points in an interview with KABC-TV in Los Angeles: “Hate rhetoric such as this can and does lead to hate crimes and dehumanizes a whole population, and we feel it’s extremely insensitive to say something like this about the faith of 1.6 billion people.”
A jaw-dropping expose on the six-month undercover operation that revealed the true terror-supporting nature of CAIR: “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America.”
Melendez, a U.S. Navy veteran, however, has so far refused to apologize.
“It was never my intention to offend peaceful Muslims,” she said in a statement released Feb. 12. “However, I’ve had enough of Islamic extremists and terrorists who oppress women and burn people alive in the modern world. This isn’t about hashtags; it’s about America standing up with our allies and putting an end to the barbaric behavior we are witnessing around the world.”
