Keith Ellison and Michigan Candidates Top the 2017-18 Islamist Money List

Middle East Forum, October 5, 2018:

PHILADELPHIA – October 5, 2018 – The Middle East Forum’s “Islamist Money in Politics” (IMIP) project has calculated the top-ten recipients of 2017-18 campaign contributions from prominent Islamists. These are funds from individuals who agree with the goals of Khomeini, Bin Laden and ISIS.

Michigan politicians dominate the list. Failed Democratic gubernatorial candidate Abdul El-Sayed raised an impressive $80,400 – the most ever in a single election-cycle since IMIP began tracking these donations in 2014. This includes $58,760 from senior officials of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), designated a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates.

Rep. Keith Ellison (Democratic congressman from Minnesota) is number two on the list, and the top national candidate. Long an Islamist money favorite with a lifetime total of $227,473 in contributions, Ellison has raked in $28,030 from Islamists so far this cycle as he seeks to become Minnesota’s attorney general (though he is currently facing domestic-abuse allegations). Ellison is also deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee.

Michigan Democrat Rashida Tlaib (number three on our list) won the 13th Congressional District primary, leveraging $27,944 in Islamist money from across the U.S. to outspend her opponents by almost two-to-one.

All three have close ties to Islamist groups (please see herehere and here), signaling the Islamist lobby’s affections and intentions as they seek to influence U.S. policy.

Other politicians listed include Debbie Stabenow, Senator from Michigan; Jennifer Wexton, running for Congress in Virginia; Ammar Campa-Najjar, running for Congress in California; Dan Kildee, Congressman from Michigan; Pramila Jayapal, Representative from Washington State; Tahir Javed, running for Congress in Texas; Ilhan Omar, running for Congress in Minnesota; and Tom Malinowski, running for Congress in New Jersey.

Standings within the top-ten list will likely change as the Federal Election Commission releases more donation data.

“It is encouraging that American Muslims are running for office,” said Oren Litwin, research fellow for the IMIP program. “But Islamist groups are exploiting this for their own purposes, and funding their allies to advance an agenda incompatible with the Constitution.”

Islamist Money in Politics (IMIP) shines a light on Islamist influence in U.S. politics. To date, it has uncovered 6,078 contributions from a tight group of prominent Islamist activists, totaling more than $2.8 million. While the amounts are small, they provide valuable information on Islamist political goals and strategy, allowing friends of the Constitution to counter their efforts.

The non-partisan project continually updates contribution data to hold politicians accountable and educate the public.

Trevor Loudon and the Center’s Frank Gaffney launch scathing critique of Keith Ellison as his Minnesota AG race tightens

Center for Security Policy

On September 26, 2018, acclaimed author and filmmaker Trevor Loudon joined Center President Frank Gaffney at CSP’s studios to livestream a launch of Loudon’s book Burn This Book: What Keith Ellison Doesn’t Want You to Know About His Radical Marxist and Islamist Associations and Agenda.

The two traced Ellison’s political journey- which started with an attraction to pro-Chinese Communists and the Nation of Islam in college- through his association with Muslim Brotherhood front groups like CAIR and MPAC as a sitting Congressman.  Ellison’s syncretism of Islamist and Marxist ideologies epitomizes the “Red-Green Axis” that seeks to undermine our Western and Judeo-Christian institutions. View an archive of the live stream below:

Ellison is stepping down as a Member of Congress, but remains Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee and is running for the position of Minnesota Attorney General in the 2018 midterm elections. Loudon and Gaffney specifically addressed allegations of abuse that have surfaced and how they might be related to his Islamist beliefs:

“Burn This Book” Exposes Keith Ellison’s Anti-American, Marxist And Islamist Associations and Agenda

Center for Security Policy, September 18, 2018:

BURN THIS BOOK EXPOSES KEITH ELLISON’S ANTI-AMERICAN,

MARXIST AND ISLAMIST ASSOCIATIONS AND AGENDA

Purchase as KindlePaperback or download as a Free PDF.

(Washington, D.C.):  On July 17, 2018, Representative Keith Ellison issued an astonishing – and revealing – public demand that Amazon CEO Jeffrey Bezos submit his company’s printed and digital products to censorship by the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).  In addition, Ellison called for Amazon to no longer publish works by authors that the SPLC deems to be “haters.” Ellison actually insisted that any such material in their  inventory be destroyed.

The Center for Security Policy is proud to announce the publication of the new book that may have prompted Rep. Ellison to out himself as a book-burner.

In Burn This Book: What Keith Ellison Doesn’t Want You to Know About His Radical Marxist and Islamist Associations and Agenda, author, filmmaker, and national security expert Trevor Loudon has written a carefully documented account of the congressman and would-be Minnesota attorney general’s long history of embracing both of America’s greatest internal threats: Shariah-supremacism and neo-Marxism.

As Mr. Loudon demonstrates, even as Rep. Ellison portrays himself as a patriotic champion of “social justice,” he continues myriad personal and political associations with individuals and groups openly hostile to the U.S. Constitution and Western civilization.

Burn This Book meticulously details Rep. Ellison’s decades-long – and continuing – record of personal involvement with openly anti-American organizations, parties and people. It begins with the congressman’s attraction during his college years to communism and leftist movements.  Then, although Ellison was born and raised a Roman Catholic, as a 19-year-old student at Detroit’s Wayne State University, he converted to Islam and became involved with the viciously anti-Semitic and racist Nation of Islam (NoI).

In due course, Keith Ellison putatively broke with Louis Farrakhan and his NoI organization in favor of extensive and ongoing relationships with many fronts of the jihadist U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. Indeed, Rep. Ellison continues to be a frequent keynote speaker at the fundraisers and conventions of Brotherhood groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Muslim American Society (MAS). The fact that many of these Brotherhood front groups were named in 2008 by the Department of Justice as unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation/Hamas terrorism-financing trial appears to be of no concern for Ellison. Shortly after five Holy Land defendants were convicted, the congressman’s hajj to Mecca in December 2008 was paid for by MAS, which describes itself as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States.

Particularly worrisome is the fact that, as the Democratic National Committee’s Vice Chairman, Keith Ellison has also forged close ties with the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s political umbrella group. The USCMO is increasingly intimately affiliated with Turkey’s Brotherhood-tied regime of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Justice and Development Party (AKP).  USCMO figures, including Ellison, meet regularly at the Lanham, Maryland Diyanet Center of America, the U.S. hub for Turkish operations in this country. The increasingly aggressive hostility of Erdogan’s Turkey towards this country also appears not to trouble Rep. Ellison.

It is noteworthy that Keith Ellison’s political fortunes have relied heavily on support from the generally Sharia-supremacist Somali immigrant and refugee community in Minneapolis. Ellison’s past and present political campaigns rely on votes from places like “Little Mogadishu” in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis, whose residents openly declare their preference for Sharia, Islam’s totalitarian political-military-legal doctrine, over the U.S. Constitution.

A video backgrounder on Rep. Ellison’s radical connections by Trevor Loudon

Trevor Loudon performs a public service by thoroughly documenting the funding and support that Keith Ellison has received from the likes of the Minnesota Communist Party, the Muslim Brotherhood, and the communist Democratic Socialists of America. With a deep understanding of how both the radical leftist and Islamist arms of the “Red-Green axis” have infiltrated U.S. society, Mr. Loudon leads the reader through a thicket of seeming contradictions in Ellison’s life and politics.

Frank J. Gaffney, the Center for Security Policy’s President addressed one such contradiction upon the publication of Burn This Book:

Keith Ellison famously raised his right hand to take the oath of office as a U.S. Representative with his left hand on the Quran. The episode epitomized his troubling record and proclivities. After all, the oath to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States” is a solemn pledge to uphold freedoms guaranteed by that document – including, Americans’ freedom of speech and the press. Pursuant to its Article VI, those who so swear must abjure and disavow any other law or set of laws except the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. So, which was the falsehood for Ellison: his words of allegiance to the Constitution, or his left hand on the book that is the primary source for Sharia, Islam’s alien, supremacist and anti-constitutional legal system?

Trevor Loudon’s new monograph could not possibly be more timely or more crucial for Americans whose choices at the ballot box depend on accurate information about the candidates – including what they would rather not advertise. While much of our national security leadership’s attention is, of necessity, focused on challenges from abroad, this book offers insights into arguably equally urgent domestic threats that the Center for Security Policy hopes may be addressed with greater understanding for our leaders and the public alike having the opportunity to read these uncensored pages.

Brotherhood-Linked Congressman Running to be AG of Minnesota

Keith Ellison would rather wage war on Trump in court than in Congress.

Front Page Magazine, by Mathew Vadum, June 8, 2018:

Brotherhood-linked Congressman Keith Ellison is giving up his ultra-safe seat in the U.S. House of Representatives to run for the post of attorney general of Minnesota, a risky move in a state that isn’t as radically left-wing as his home district.

The primary election is Aug. 14.

Ellison, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) deputy chairman who essentially endorsed the violent anarchists and communists of the subversive Antifa movement, claims he wants to be the North Star State’s top lawyer to litigate away in a quest for justice.

“It was attorneys general who led the fight against [President Trump’s so-called] Muslim ban,” Ellison said after filing his paperwork on the final day allowed. “I want to be a part of that fight.”

“As Attorney General, I will push for equal rights under the law, for commonsense gun safety laws, and for criminal justice reform that ends unjust policies and creates a pathway for Minnesotans to reenter as contributing members of society.”

“No one — not even a President — is above the law,” he wrote in a statement. Minnesotans “need a fighter on their side,” he added, calling himself the “People’s Lawyer.”

But the term “People’s Lawyer” has a special meaning for left-wing radicals.

The Left likes to refer to some of its legal heroes like Sixties icon William Kunstler as “People’s Lawyers.” It’s not what you might think.

A “People’s Lawyer” – the phrase is always capitalized – is a crusading, small-c communist attorney who devotes his life to using the legal system to fundamentally transform America. As such it is a profoundly antisocial, un-American concept, so, naturally, it is embraced by the communist-dominated National Lawyers Guild (NLG).

Or so he says.

Ellison may also believe the much-hyped “blue wave” the media keeps telling us will give Democrats control of Congress isn’t coming this November. Maybe he doesn’t relish the prospect of continuing to be a powerless backbencher with little influence on the House’s legislative agenda.

Ellison, 54, jumped into the AG race after the incumbent, Lori Swanson (D), decided she’d prefer to seek the governorship.

Why should anyone care if Ellison, the first Muslim elected to the U.S. Congress, becomes Minnesota’s attorney general?

Ellison is an admirer of convicted cop killer and leftist folk hero Mumia Abu Jamal. He is also a former co-chairman of the Communist-linked Congressional Progressive Caucus.

Ellison, an in-your-face Muslim sympathetic to jihad, implicitly expressed support months ago for the use of violence against President Trump in a tweet as he posed for a selfie with the cover of Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook, by Mark Bray.

“At @MoonPalaceBooks and I just found the book that strike [sic] fear in the heart of @realDonaldTrump[,]” the DNC official tweeted.

Ellison’s anti-Americanism and radicalism are nothing new, but they took on added importance after he became second-in-command at the DNC. Democrats are the party that officially endorsed the violent, America-hating Black Lives Matter movement whose radical left-wing members accuse police nationwide of systemic anti-black racism and brutality against black suspects.

In 2015 hundreds of DNC delegates in Minneapolis approved a resolution that accused American police of “extrajudicial killings of unarmed African American men, women and children.” In other words, since 2015 it has been official Democratic Party policy that there are roving death squads manned by police officers who specifically stalk and execute without trial black men, women, and children across America.

Activists and media types look to him. Ellison was a longtime fringe-dweller before he became a Democrat office-holder. He was a member of Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam. He described Hitler-loving Farrakhan as “a role model for black youth,” “not an anti-Semite,” and “a sincere, tireless, and uncompromising advocate of the black community and other oppressed people around the world.”

Ellison has links to Hamas. He is also a regular at events sponsored by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), two Muslim Brotherhood front groups the Department of Justice has identified as co-conspirators in terrorism financing schemes benefiting Hamas. It is also worth noting that in 2008, Ellison accepted $13,350 from the Muslim American Society (MAS), another Muslim Brotherhood Front group, to go on a pilgrimage to Mecca.

When Ellison won his first congressional election on Nov. 7, 2006, at his victory party several of his supporters shouted “Allahu Akbar!” which is the traditional battle cry of jihadists.

Are the voters of Minnesota crazy enough to elect Ellison as the state’s chief law enforcement official?

Well, yes, they certainly are.

See Gov. Jesse Ventura (1999 – 2003), U.S. Sen. Al Franken (2009 to 2018), and of course, U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (2007 to present).

Chances are the air with be filled again with cries “Allahu Akbar!” after the ballots are counted in Minnesota’s attorney general election.

Candidate to Replace Keith Ellison May Be Even More Hostile to Israel

by IPT News  •  

Within three short hours of U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison’s announcement that he would leave Congress to run for Minnesota Attorney General, Minneapolis state Rep. Ilhan Omar became a candidate to replace him in Washington. Omar became the first Somali Muslim legislator in 2016, defeating 22-term state Rep. Phyllis Kahn.

Ellison’s tenure has been marked by concerns he is hostile to Israel, something compounded by the Investigative Project on Terrorism obtaining a 2010 recording in which Ellison complains that Israel enjoys disproportionate influence over U.S. foreign policy.

But given what she says on social media, including comments before she ran for office, Omar appears explicitly and openly hostile toward Israel.

In the wake of last month’s violence at the Israel-Gaza border, Omar blasted what she called “Israeli crimes” and called Israel’s response a massacre. Palestinians and their advocates tried to cast the violence as unprovoked, and coming amid peaceful protests. In fact, a senior Hamas official admits the Palestinian border protests were “not peaceful resistance” and another Hamas leader bragged that the overwhelming majority of casualties were part of the terrorist group.

Omar has not commented on those facts or lamented the damage Hamas does to everyday life in Gaza in order to invest in future terrorist operations. Instead, she lets stand claims that Israel alone is to blame.

She also has worked with people and groups which share her enmity toward Israel. Omar served on the advisory board for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Minnesota chapter and has spoken at numerous CAIR events with Zahra Billoo and Linda Sarsour.

Internal records seized by the FBI show that CAIR was formed by Muslim Brotherhood officials in the United States to serve a broader Hamas-support network called the Palestine Committee. Billoo has repeatedly argued that there is no moral distinction between ISIS and the Israeli army. Sarsour is a rabid anti-Zionist who literally embraced convicted Palestinian terrorist bomber Rasmieh Odeh and hails ultra-conservative clerics.

Omar also appears in a new video by the pop music act Maroon 5. That prompted a Twitter exchange in which a writer called her a “Jew hater.”

“Drawing attention to the apartheid Israeli regime is far from hating Jews,” Omar shot back.

The video always features Israeli actress and “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot, an Israeli citizen and veteran of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

During the last round of Gaza violence in 2014, Gadot shared a picture of her with her daughter lighting Shabbat candles. “I am sending my love and prayers to my fellow Israeli citizens,” she wrote. “Especially to all the boys and girls who are risking their lives protecting my country against the horrific acts conducted by Hamas, who are hiding like cowards behind women and children…We shall overcome!!! Shabbat Shalom!”

It’s not clear whether Omar knew she would share the screen with Gadot, or whether that might have caused her to reconsider participating. As this new campaign begins, we might soon find out.

CAIR’s Ayloush Races Past Hate, Goes Straight to Idiotic

Hussam Ayloush, head of the LA Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Photo: Investigative Project on Terrorism.

IPT News by Steven Emerson, May 25, 2018:

It’s one thing to toss out a poorly-formed talking point. But when you cling to it for years, despite its obvious inanity, well, it says quite a lot about the speaker.

Hussam Ayloush, head of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Los Angeles office, told us quite a lot about himself last week, when he again equated ISIS terrorists with the Israeli army. During a program at the Islamic Institute of Orange County on “Islamophobia” – a form of bigotry – Ayloush complained about Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) programs he said unjustly target Muslims, the Algemeiner reported Thursday.

There’s no similar focus on white communities, he said in a video highlighted by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). “You know how many hundreds of Jewish American kids are recruited to join the Israeli occupation army? Hundreds. Every year. They leave their country, leave America, to go join with an army that is engaged, with no debate, in major violations of human rights, and maybe some would argue, and I’m one of them, war crimes.”

“No one has ever established a CVE program to see, why would normal Jewish American kids leave their home and join to be part of an army committing war crimes.”

This is so idiotic it shouldn’t require an explanation. But there are some elementary differences which Ayloush pretends do not exist.

ISIS recruits will tell anyone who asks that they tried to join in order to kill – be it in defense of Muslims from external threats, infidels, or anyone who gets in the way. And they pose a legitimate threat to the United States if they return home, or if they fail to make it overseas and decide to strike here.

If American Jews were on record saying they were going to join the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) specifically to slaughter Palestinians, then Ayloush might have a point. But that’s not why American Jews have joined. Because of its size and the nature of the threats against it, military service is compulsory for most young men and women. If you want to live in Israel, you serve.

That context is something a sentient being like Ayloush should be aware of, but it is not one that helps his hate-driven comparison. And it’s not new.

In fact, it is strikingly similar to comments Ayloush made in 2015 – three years ago – during a similar Orange County program:

“You know, you don’t hear about countering violent extremism to deal with the thousands of Jewish-American kids who join the Israeli army killing the people of Gaza. When was the last time the DHS – the Dept. of Homeland Security – or the FBI approached the Jewish community to ask them to deal with this trend? Actually, there are many more Jewish Americans who have joined the Israeli army than there are Muslim Americans who join ISIS.”

As we wrote at the time:

How does one equate a functioning democratic state, one which routinely warns people to vacate an area before an airstrike, in which its Arab citizens have greater individual rights to choose their representatives than most of the Muslim world, with a death cult that seems to work overtime to kill in the most shocking and depraved ways imaginable?

Blind hate.

Given his repeated claim, other options might now include stupidity and deliberate deception.

In last week’s discussion, Ayloush blamed the “Islamophobia industry” for telling Americans Muslims are bad and pushing policies to hurt them. “Let’s push for bullying,” he said as an example. He then claimed polling shows 60 to 67 percent Americans have negative views of Islam.

That is a significant exaggeration, the latest Pew polling shows, and the trend is moving toward more favorable attitudes. But “things are getting better” isn’t a great message for an “Islamophobia” program.

Ask Ayloush about Hamas and he’ll show you another way he cons his audiences.

In 2013, he reacted angrily and defensively to the question of whether Hamas is a terrorist organization. CAIR is a civil rights organization, he said, and “we’re not here in the business of being dragged into the Middle East affairs and the conflicts of the Middle East.”

No dragging was needed to get CAIR and its leaders to opine on recent turmoil involving Israel and Palestinians. CAIR’s national Twitter feed promoted a television interview its Florida spokesman, Wilfredo Ruiz, gave condemning the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem. It has “absolutely no purpose in our foreign policy,” he said. “Why are we doing this? How does this benefit the United States of America?”

 

And CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad, a man with a direct connection to a U.S.-based Hamas support network, was quick to accuse Israel of a “massacre” at the Gaza-Israel border earlier this month.

If it happened in the United States, Awad told a Baltimore television station, “the world would be up in flame.”

Two days later, a senior Hamas official claimed that the overwhelming majority of those killed were Hamas fighters. CAIR hasn’t said much about that.

To recap, when challenged to acknowledge or deny Hamas’s terrorist mission, Ayloush says that CAIR is a simple American civil rights organization that shouldn’t be dragged into Middle East conflicts. But he and other CAIR leaders think the Israel Defense Forces are on par with ISIS. And when Palestinians die, CAIR officials are eager to be on camera to condemn Israel.

That’s a con game in action. And it works. Ayloush remains politically influential, posing for a picture with Congressman Keith Ellison May 8 during a Capitol Hill lobbying push. Ellison, of course, privately espousesa belief that Israel controls U.S. foreign policy.

Meanwhile, news reporters either are ignorant about CAIR’s roots or prefer not to ask the kinds of questions about Hamas that set Ayloush off. The next time he wants to be on somebody’s air, they should ask him to defend his ignorant and hateful comparison.

***

Jordan Schachtel at Conservative Review writes:

The CAIR director has an Islamic supremacist worldview, and he has often made extremist statements in support of radical groups and individuals.

In 2016, he applauded the crashing of a Russian passenger jet that resulted in the deaths of 92 people.

After the 2015 Islamic terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California, Ayloush said that the blame belongs with American foreign policy.

In 2004, he claimed that U.S. presence in the Middle East is a “war on Muslims.”

Push Back against the Jihadists in Disguise

American Thinker, by Eileen F. Toplansky, May 14, 2018:

It has long been the absolute intention of the Muslim Brotherhood and other jihadist terror groups to infiltrate and completely alter the United States via American schools, the armed forces, the entertainment industry, and the government – and, of course, through U.S. borders.

So when the likes of Sheila Jackson Lee, Luis Correa, and Eleanor Holmes Norton are co-sponsoring H. Res 869, a bill to recognize American Muslims’ history and contributions to America, it is time to highlight how these Democrats are doing the bidding of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).  CAIR is partially funded by the Saudi Wahhabi establishment and has numerous ties to extremist Islamic organizations.

H. Res. 869 states:

[M]any African slaves brought to the Americas, including the American colonies, later known as the United States of America, were Muslim, and made innumerable contributions to the founding of our Nation[.]

Notice how history is glossed over concerning the extent of Arab involvement in slavery.

According to the Assyrian International News Agency:

Over 28 million Africans have been enslaved in the Muslim world during the past 14 centuries.  While much has been written concerning the Transatlantic slave trade, surprisingly little attention has been given to the Islamic slave trade across the Sahara, the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean.

While the European involvement in the Transatlantic slave trade to the Americas lasted for just over three centuries, the Arab involvement in the slave trade has lasted fourteen centuries, and in some parts of the Muslim world is still continuing to this day.  A comparison of the Muslim slave trade to the American slave trade reveals some interesting contrasts.

H. Res. 869 continues:

American Muslims have long served in the Nation’s Armed Forces and fought in all major United States conflicts, from the Revolutionary War to present day, with more than 5,000 Muslims currently serving in the Armed Forces and many Muslims having made the ultimate sacrifice for the United States, including Army Corporal Kareem Rashad Sultan Khan (1987–2007), and Army Captain Humayun Saqib Muazzam Khan (1976–2004)[.]

Americans do thank those who have given the full measure of devotion, but it is ingenuous to forget, as Michelle Malkin explains, that “Bronze Star and Purple Heart recipient Captain Humayun Khan died heroically.  But his exceptional courage in Iraq … does not erase the security threat posed by killer warriors of Allah infiltrating our troops.”

In fact, “two years before his rampage, U.S. Army major Nidal Hasan delivered a 50-slide PowerPoint presentation titled ‘The Koranic World View as It Relates to Muslims in the U.S. Military.’  Quoting chapter and verse, Hasan illuminated what the Koran inculcates in the minds of Muslims and the potential implications this may have for the U.S. military.”

In Slide 11, Hasan bemoaned [sic]: ‘It’s getting harder and harder for Muslims in the service to morally justify being in a military that seems constantly engaged against fellow Muslims.’

Slide 48 warned: ‘If Muslim groups can convince Muslims that they are fighting for God against injustices of the “infidels;” i.e.: enemies of Islam, then Muslims can become a potent adversary i.e.: suicide bombing, etc. We love death more then [sic] you love life!’

Nidal Hasan wanted Muslim soldiers to be released as conscientious objectors to “decrease adverse events.”  But these “adverse events was [sic] Hasan’s euphemism for bloody jihad attacks and betrayals by Muslim soldiers against their fellow U.S. soldiers e.g., Hasan Akbar, the 326th Engineer Battalion Muslim-American soldier who lobbed stolen hand grenades and shot his M-4 automatic rifle into three tents filled with sleeping commanding officers at the 101st Airborne Division’s 1st Brigade operations center in Kuwait in 2003.  Captain Christopher Seifert, 27, and Major Gregory Stone, 40, died during the fragging.  Fourteen others suffered wounds from grenade shrapnel.”

Such “[w]illful blindness to a Muslim-American soldier’s fundamental internal conflict of loyalties led to those murders and injuries.”

H. Res. 869 cites the “countless other American Muslims who served valiantly in the First and Second World Wars[.]”

Ignored is the fact that Muslims were being brought in by the tens of thousands to fight for the Nazis in World War II.  Thus, “[a]t the height of the war in 1941-1942, when German troops entered Muslim-populated territories in the Balkans, North Africa, Crimea, and the Caucasus, and approached the Middle East and Central Asia, Berlin began to see Islam as politically significant.  Nazi Germany made significant attempts to promote an alliance with the ‘Muslim world’ against their alleged common enemies – the British Empire, the Soviet Union, America and Jews.”

In fact, “[a]s early as 1941, the Wehrmacht distributed the military handbook ‘Islam’ to train its soldiers to behave correctly towards Muslim populations.”  It is critical to remember that “the famous Mufti of Jerusalem … shared the Nazis’ Jew-hatred.”

In H. Res. 869, “Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison and Indiana Congressman Andre Carson” are mentioned in order to recognize their contributions to America.

Let’s review these contributions.  Ellison’s radical actions date way back.

At a 1995 University of Minnesota rally to promote Louis Farrakhan’s anticipated Million Man March, Ellison, who organized the rally, appeared onstage with Khalid Abdul Muhammad, who delivered a thundering, racist diatribe.

In May 2011, Ellison was the keynote speaker at a CAIR-Los Angeles fundraiser.  According to the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Ellison spoke at a minimum of twelve CAIR fundraising events between 2006-16.

It is crucial to remember that CAIR is a front for terrorism.

Combining anti-Semitism with leftist leanings, Ellison strongly supports the anti-capitalist Occupy Wall Street movement.  In addition, he was a speaker “at the Democratic National Convention that was part of an alliance of anti-Israel organizations that promote the Boycott, Divestment, & Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel.  Ellison himself supports BDS.”

Moreover, “Ellison was scheduled to be the keynote speaker for the annual Muslim American Society (MAS)/Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) convention in 2016 where many of the speakers had ties to ‘highly radicalized Islamic elements.'”  It is clear that Ellison sides with those who would do harm to the United States.

Concerning Congressman Andre Carson, “at an August 22, 2011 Congressional Black Caucus event in Miami, Carson told a gathering of supporters that the Tea Party was infested with white racism.”

Like Ellison, Carson has an anti-Israel and pro-Islamist track record.  In 2008, Carson attended a conference held by the Islamic Society of North America.  In 2009, Carson spoke at the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC).

In addition, “[o]n May 26, 2012, Carson was a guest speaker at the 37th annual convention of the Muslim American Society (MSA)/Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), in Hartford, Connecticut.  Both the MAS and ICNA are closely tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.  During his remarks, he stated that U.S. schools should be modeled after madrassas – Islamic schools infamous for their tendency to promote sexist, anti-Semitic teachings.  Said Carson: ‘America will never tap into educational innovation and ingenuity without looking at the model that we have in our madrassas, in our schools, where innovation is encouraged, where the foundation is the Quran.  And that model that we are pushing in some of our schools meets the multiple needs of students. … America must understand that she needs Muslims.'”

Between January 2008 and June 2014, Carson received 55 separate political donations (totaling nearly $34,000 altogether) from Islamists affiliated with the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim American Society, and the Muslim Public Affairs Council..

Naïveté and ignorance of jihadists’ intentions can no longer be cited.  It is disingenuous to believe that there is not an ulterior motive behind this latest action.  It is, in fact, another in a long series of soft jihad.  The ultimate goal is a global caliphate.  Urge Congress not to support H. Res. 869.
