Why Michele Bachmann Is Right About Keith Ellison

Pages: 1 2

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has accused Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN) of having a “long record of being associated” with the Hamas-linked Council on American–Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Evoking the days of McCarthyism, a common charge being leveled at Bachmann these days, Ellison responded: “I am not now, nor have I ever been, associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.” He accused Bachmann of religious bigotry:

“I think she has a very narrowly prescribed definition of who belongs and who doesn’t. And there’s a whole bloc of people she don’t like. I think she thinks that we’re evil because we don’t understand God the way she does….It’s also about marginalizing and alienating a certain group of Americans who she does not view are American enough.”

Not content with that, he accused her of petty attention-seeking:

“But you have to ask yourself, you know, why did she make this so public? Why did she seem to be seeking public attention for these allegations she was making? If she really had actionable intelligence, why wouldn’t she go to the agencies that investigate these things? I think the answer is clear that she wanted attention. That was her goal all along.”

The only problem with Ellison’s wounded-martyr stance toward Bachmann’s accusations is that what she said is true: Ellison really does have a “long record of being associated” with Hamas-linked CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood.

As long ago as 2006, Ellison’s closeness to Nihad Awad, co-founder of Hamas-linked CAIR, was a matter of public record. Awad, who notoriously said in 1994 that he was “in support of the Hamas movement,” spoke at fundraisers for Ellison, raising considerable sums for his first Congressional race. According to investigative journalist Patrick Poole, Ellison has appeared frequently at CAIR events since then, despite the fact that CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements. Its California chapter distributed posters telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI.

Poole explains that “according to Justice Department, Awad is a longtime Hamas operative. Multiple statements made by federal prosecutors identify Awad as one of the attendees at a 1993 meeting of US Muslim Brotherhood Palestine Committee leaders in Philadelphia that was wiretapped by the FBI under a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant. The topic of discussion during that 1993 meeting was how to help Hamas by working in the U.S. to help sabotage the Oslo Peace Accords.” But none of that fazed Ellison.

CAIR is also linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. Awad and CAIR’s cofounder, Omar Ahmad, were officials of the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP) before founding CAIR. A captured internal Muslim Brotherhood document lists the IAP as one of the Brotherhood’s allied groups in the U.S.

    I almost never leave a response, but i did some searching and
    wound up here Why Michele Bachmann Is Right About Keith Ellison | FrontPage
    Magazine. And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you don’t mind. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like some of these responses look as if they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on other online sites, I’d like to follow everything new you have to
    post. Could you make a list of every one of your shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or
    twitter feed?

    I am new to building web sites and I was wanting to know if having your
    blog title related to your content really that critical?
    I notice your title, “Why Michele Bachmann Is Right About Keith Ellison | FrontPage Magazine ” does appear to be spot on with what your website is
    about yet, I prefer to keep my title less content
    descriptive and based more around site branding.
    Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any help would be greatly

    Hey, i ‘m a blogger just like you, and was thinking if you ever before tried those addthis.com like it buttons and if they will be any good. I realized they load quite a lot of code, so now i’m unclear if

    its worth adding it, due the massive raise of KB of the overall

    filesize. Have you ever tried it? I am very interested to hear what other bloggers say about that?

    I would highly value if you could sent me a message to

    lavondamachado@gmail.com if you have any working experience with those

    add-ons. Thx .. btw, luv your blog ever since!
