Oklahoma GOP to Christians: Be ‘wary’ of Muslim Americans — they’ll ‘decapitate you’

The Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Oklahoma chapter is criticizing a state representative who posted on Facebook that his constituents should “be especially wary” of anyone who refers to him- or herself as a “Muslim American,” The Oklahoman reports.

On Monday, Representative John Bennett (R) — a former United States Marine Corps reservist who has served in both Iraq and Afghanistan — posted.

The executive director of the Oklahoma Chapter of CAIR, Adam Soltani, wrote a letter to Rep. Bennett in which he said, “anti-Muslim bigotry and statements that promote misunderstanding and incite hatred toward a minority group have no place in the Oklahoma Republican Party. Individuals elected to represent the people of Oklahoma should be held accountable for such extremist, inaccurate and intolerant views.”
