Regarding Ellison's speech last month at the Muslim American Society's
annual conference in Minneapolis, Joe Kaufman, founder of Americans
Against Hate, warned, "This is of grave concern."
an article at FrontPage Magazine as well as in a news statement,
Kaufman said: "Not only is it a conflict of interest for a member of the U.S.
House of Representatives to participate with such groups, but it is, as well, an
issue of national security. Those in positions of power must demand an end to
Keith Ellison's dangerous and bigoted associations. Either that or they must
insist on his resignation."
As WND reported earlier, it was in 2000 when Ellison joined Bernadine
Dohrn, one of the founders of the 1960s radical group the Weather Underground,
and several other speakers at a fundraiser for then-recently arrested Kathleen
Soliah, a.k.a. Sara Jane Olson.
A few Statements from the Muslim American Society's website:
"The Holy Prophet (and through him the Muslims) has been reassured that
he should not mind the enmity, the evil designs and the machinations of the
"In view of the degenerate moral condition of the Jews and the
Christians, the Believers have been warned not to make them their friends and
"If you gain victory over the men of Jews, kill them."
"The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say, 'O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.'"
"May Allah destroy the Jews, because they used the graves of
their prophets as places of worship."
"A Muslim must always worship Allah and wage jihad until death in order to reach his ultimate goal… Regularly make the intention to go on jihad with the ambition to die as a martyr."
Should he stay or should he go? I'll let you decide that for yourself. I will say that he should not be involved with groups like these.
