Calling for the protection of religious minority rights and freedoms in the Arab world.
Recognizes, in the spirit of the "Arab Spring" revolution (where ordinary citizens have taken to the streets demanding an end to corruption, political cronyism, and government repression), that religious minority freedoms and rights must be protected. Urges the U.S. government to lead the international effort to repeal existing blasphemy laws.
