CAIR's Congressman Keith Ellison Gives Aid And Comfort To Iran
June 14, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Keith Ellison, the country's first Muslim Representative [D-MI] whose motivation became a concern immediately upon him taking office, refusing to take the oath using the traditional Bible, instead opting for a Qur'an, is today quoted in the Iranian press bitterly attacking President Bush's policies vis a vis the Ahmadinejad government and claiming that the Western press presents a negative view of Islam.
"George W. Bush has adopted wrong policies on Iran--a country that plays an important role in the Middle East and the world, Ellison said…Calling the preconditions for talks with Iran irrational [Ellison said that the] only option is to wait for the next US president…he condemned Bush's policies on Iraq. Ellison emphasized that the only way to resolve the crisis in Iraq is to withdraw US forces from the war-torn country and ask Islamic countries, especially Iran, to help reconstruct the country…Ellison was also critical of the US and Western mass media, which generally offer a prejudgmental image of Iran and a negative view of Islam."

Ellison, a former member of the anti-Semitic Nation of Islam, has been on friendly terms with terror friendly groups such as the Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR, an unindicted co-conspirator in the ongoing Holy Land Foundation Hamas prosecution] since the inception of his campaign, with the controversial organization holding fundraisers for his candidacy.
Today's statements continues to place Ellison's loyalty in question while lending credence to allegations that his purpose in office is in service to the stealth jihad, intent upon facilitating the incremental imposition of Shari'a on American society. http://www.pipelinenews.org/index.cfm?page=ellisonartid=061408%2Ehtm
