One lawmaker wants America to "wake up" and stop allowing terrorism to proliferate.
Rep. Sue Myrick, R-N.C., recently released a 10-point plan she hopes will stave radical elements of Islam from infiltrating the military, school rooms, and other elements of society.
If that means revoking the passport of a former U.S. president or examining the preaching of prison chaplains, that's what she's prepared to do, according to a report in The Charlotte Observer.
Last week, she called for President Jimmy Carter's passport to be revoked because he met with Hamas, a Palestinian group that the U.S. government says supports terrorism.
''His actions reward terrorists, lend support and provide legitimacy to their belief that violence will eventually get them what they want,'' Myrick said.
Myrick acknowledged that her 10-point plan, called ''Wake Up America,'' might hit some road blocks in Washington -- but she thinks it's time to start demanding answers.
''We put this together really to try to get a dialogue going,'' she said. ''It's a beginning point.''
Here is Myrick's 10-point plan to tackle threats posed by radical elements of Islam:
1. Investigate all military chaplains endorsed by Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was imprisoned for funding a terrorist organization.
2. Investigate all prison chaplains endorsed by Alamoudi.
3. Investigate the selection process of Arabic translators working for the Pentagon and the FBI.
4. Examine the non-profit status of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
5. Make it an act of sedition or solicitation of treason to preach or publish materials that call for the deaths of Americans.
6. Audit sovereign wealth funds in the United States.
7. Cancel scholarship student visa program with Saudi Arabia until they reform their text books, which she claims preach hatred and violence against non-Muslims.
8. Restrict religious visas for imams who come from countries that don't allow reciprocal visits by non-Muslim clergy.
9. Cancel contracts to train Saudi police and security in U.S. counterterrorism tactics.
10. Block the sale of sensitive military munitions to Saudi Arabia.
