1. Schumer Lashes Out At Islamic Terrorists
Representative Charles E. Schumer, a Democrat from New York
state, has said that under the newly enacted crime bill it would be
illegal to transfer funds collected on American soil and use
them for terrorist activities abroad.
In a chat with News India-Times, the senior congressman
requested President Clinton to direct FBI to prevent any group from
funding terrorism in foreign countries.
Referring to escalation of Islamic fundamentalism in Jammu and
Kashmir, Schumer urged the president to take "swift, certain,
and relentless action against those practicing terrorism. We must
not permit those who practice it to gain a toehold on our own
soil." The Kashmir issue, he said, should be resolved by following
Simla Agreement. State-sponsored terrorism either by Tehran or
Islamabad should not be allowed, he said.
Schumer said he would take up the Clinton administration the
issue of appointing Indian-Americans in top posts.
