Former Nation of Islam member but still a practitioner of the Religion of Peace, Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN) last night gave a speech to the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) chapter in Minnesota at their first annual banquet. CAIR by the way, is one of three Radical Islamic Organizations in the United States named by Federal Prosecutors to be participating in a criminal conspiracy of providing Support to Palestinian Terror group Hamas who are also close personal friends of former President Jimmy Carter.
Federal prosecutors have named three prominent Islamic organizations in America as participants in an alleged criminal conspiracy to support a Palestinian Arab terrorist group, Hamas.
Prosecutors applied the label of “unindicted co-conspirator” to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America, and the North American Islamic Trust in connection with a trial planned in Texas next month for five officials of a defunct charity, the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development.
While the foundation was charged in the case, which was filed in 2004, none of the other groups was. However, the co-conspirator designation could be a blow to the credibility of the national Islamic organizations, which often work hand-in-hand with government officials engaged in outreach to the Muslim community.
A court filing by the government last week listed the three prominent groups among about 300 individuals or entities named as co-conspirators. The document gave scant details, but prosecutors described CAIR as a present or past member of “the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee and/or its organizations.” The government listed the Islamic Society of North America and the North American Islamic Trust as “entities who are and/or were members of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.”
An American Congressman speaking to a group that provides support to Islamic Terrorists. Can anybody besides me see that there is something clearly wrong with this picture?
I see clearly that the Muslims have made an alliance with the Democratic Party, and soon multiculturalism will rule. That is one short step away from Sharia. The Dems will not have the guts or the will to stop this. Neither will they have the desire, for the aims of the two are the same: De-construction of our constitutional freedoms.
The question for the Republican Party is this : Who will sound the alarm for this infestation into our way of life?
It is my personal opinion that people who support a strong role for Islam in politics are more likely to also support terrorism. Perhaps more surprisingly, people who perceive Islam to play a large role in the politics of their home country are also more likely to support terrorism.
Congressman Keith Ellison and CAIR both encourage and support a strong role for Islam in U.S. politics, and they both have history of supporting terrorist organizations.
The people of Minnesota who elected Keith Ellison to Congress, should be utterly ashamed.
Keith Ellison needs to be removed from office, not a resignation, and CAIR needs to be kicked out of America.
I have no sympathy for the voters who knew what they were getting when they elected Ellison. The rest of America , though, needs to understand that this is the tip of the camel’s nose under our congressional tent, and should not let it go any further.
