CAIR: Keith Ellison,
Maverick or CAIR Bootlicker?
The mid-term elections are on, and Minnesota
Democrats have elected Keith Ellison as their candidate for the House
Ellison, an American-born convert to Islam, is
an interesting person on many levels. First, Ellison once worked
with the Nation of Islam (NOI), a Muslim-in-name-only “Islamic” hate
group headed by Louis Farrakhan, a vicious anti-Semite and
racist. Ellison explained away his ties to Farrakhan’s hate group
by explaining that he “…failed to scrutinize Farrakhan's positions
This alone should disqualify Ellison from
representing the good people of Minnesota.
Second, Ellison has accepted
funds and support from several leading CAIR (Council on
American-Islamic Relations) personalities, including Nihad Awad, the
executive director. Awad donated $2000, and CAIR’s Director of
Government Affairs, Corey Saylor, also chipped in to Ellison’s
campaign. Previously, Awad had apparently delivered several
checks to Ellison’s campaign totaling around $10,000. Not a bad
day for Ellison’s campaign, but it makes one wonder what CAIR is
getting in return for the cash.
The fact remains that senior CAIR staffers do support Islamic terrorism and
this is not exactly a state secret. Anyone with the slightest
interest in CAIR’s relationship with Islamic terrorism and terrorists
only need take a digital tour through any search engine.
The Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP)
was founded in 1981, and Musa Abu Marzook was its founder. The
IAP brought members of Hamas into the country to give speeches
vilifying Jews and attacking the United States in the 80’s and
90’s. When Marzook was finally removed from the country, CAIR
protested. And no wonder, Omar Ahmad, CAIR co-founder, had been
the president of the IAP, and Nihad Awad, CAIR executive director, was
the IAP public relations director…Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR spokesperson,
was an IAP employee.
Why bring this up? Marzook is a senior
member of Hamas…the self-same group that has terror-murdered American
citizens…a group that CAIR has never condemned. Considering CAIR’s ties
to Marzook, it’s no wonder that CAIR can’t bring themselves to
condemn the group led by their old mentor, Marzook.
So, we have Ellison accepting the support of
CAIR, which was birthed from the IAP by a senior member of the
terrorist group Hamas, and Ellison apparently has no problem with
sharing the stage with CAIR stooges or accepting their grubby money?
What does this make Ellison?
The fact is, Ellison wants to represent the
people of Minnesota with the support of CAIR, a group whose senior
leadership worked for an Islamic terrorist whose group has
terror-murdered Americans. Why would any American want to support
explain just how this qualifies Ellison for the House of
