Senator Ted Cruz may have left the Presidential race but he is still making waves on Capitol Hill. He presided over a Senate hearing where he accused the Obama administration of under-emphasizing the "threat of radical Islam".


Senator Dick Durbin says the hearing boosted anti-Muslim rhetoric and bigotry in the United States and he questioned the logic of the hearing after the Senate defeated legislation designed to keep guns out of the hands of terrorists.

 

 

Durbin credited former President George W Bush with stating that the religion of Islam wasn't the enemy as the nation witnessed the horrors of 9/11.
