Revealed: Muslim Rep. Keith Ellison Traveled to Mideast to Meet with Radical Islamist Groups That Support Terrorism

For those of us who treasure the Consitution and the form of government it establishes, the idea of elected officials holding and promoting beliefs in clear violation of that Constitution is repugnant.  They should have never been elected in the first place, and now that they are there, they should be removed from office.  How can you reconcile swearing to uphold the Constitution, while promoting beliefs that would undermine it?  That question may sound simplistic, but that's because the contridiction is so obvious.

Keith Ellison, Democrat from Minnesota, is a Muslim.  Of course, it's his right to practice the faith of his choice.  The question is whether he endorses Sharia Law and the Islamic form of government.  If so, he should not be in public office because it is impossible to support both Sharia Law and the US Constitution.

Given Mr. Ellison's past associations, it is reasonable to question his loyalty to our Constitution.

Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) during a 2008 trip to Saudi Arabia met with a radical Muslim cleric who endorsed killing U.S. soldiers and the president of a bank used to pay the families of Palestinian suicide bombers.

Ellison, now a leading candidate to head the Democratic National Committee, was brought to Saudi Arabia for a two-week trip by the Muslim American Society (MAS), a group founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood to act as its “overt arm” in the United States.

There we see the Muslim Brotherhood in action.  This is a group that wishes to dispense with the US Constitution, not support it.

A photo album of Ellison’s hajj trip posted by MAS’s Minnesota chapter includes a picture of the congressman meeting with Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah, who was vice president of a Muslim Brotherhood-created group that in 2004 issued a fatwa urging “jihad” against U.S. troops in Iraq and supported the Palestinians’ Second Intifada against Israel.

“The Jihad-waging Iraqi people’s resistance to the foreign occupation … is a Shari’a duty incumbent upon anyone belonging to the Muslim nation,” the fatwa said, according to a translation by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

Bin Bayyah’s group, the International Association of Muslim Scholars, issued the fatwa after a conference in Beirut, Lebanon.

The group was founded by Yusuf Qaradawi, a Muslim Brotherhood leader who was banned from visiting the United States because of his calls to kill Jews and Americans.

Bin Biyyah issued an additional fatwa in 2009, shortly after his meeting with Ellison, “barring all forms of normalization with Israel.”

If you are known by the company you keep, Mr. Ellison's loyality to America must be called into question.  It was discovered that he spoke highly of the radical Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.  As was pointed out at the time that was revealed, “If this is someone Congressman Ellison has supported, he has several problems — and he richly needs to be defeated in 2018 should he choose to run for re-election.”

If the people of Ellison's district really cannot help themselves, but are driven some strange desire for self-destruction to continually elect Democrats to represent them, surely they could find one whose loyalities are not as compromised as are those of Keith Ellison.
