Radical Muslim Congressman Andre Carsons Appointed To House Intelligence Committee "Allah Will Not Allow You Stop Us"
January 14, 2015
Democrats will appoint Muslim to the House Intelligence Committee who said US schools should be like Islamic madrassas and warned law enforcement that 'Allah will not allow you to stop us'
Indiana Democratic Rep. André Carson will soon sit on a legislative committee where some of America's most precious secrets are examined
The former policeman converted to Islam as an adult and is one of only two Muslim members of Congress
He attracted scorn with a 2012 speech in which he said American schools would be more innovative if they were more like Islamic madrassas
Carson claimed he was misunderstood but never addressed another line in the speech that seemed to taunt undercover agents who were present
'Allah will not allow you to stop us,' he said.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is set to appoint a Muslim lawmaker to the Intelligence Committee, congressional aides said Tuesday, giving him access to some of America's most closely held secrets in the war on terror.
The move will come as the world is still grappling with an al-Qaeda death squad's massacre last week of journalists at the French satire magazine Charlie Hebdo, executed because they had published a cartoon of the Muslim prophet Muhammad.
Rep. André Carson has attracted suspicion for his public statements, including a 2012 Islamic Circle of North America convention where he said America's schools should be modelled after Qur'anic madrassas.
Moments later he warned undercover law enforcement skulking around the event looking for 'secret meetings' that 'Allah will not allow you to stop us.'
"...Carson, a former police officer, represents Indiana's 7th District, an urban area that includes most of Indianapolis. He is one of only two Muslim members of Congress, the other being Minnesota Democrat Keith Ellison.
Voters sent him to Congress in a 2008 special election following the death of his grandmother, who held the seat before him.
He was already a member of the House Armed Services subcommittee on intelligence, and once worked for the Department of Homeland Security's 'Fusion Center' – a data-sharing hub that merges intelligence collected by the CIA, the FBI, the Pentagon and the Justice Department.
But his elevation to the House Intelligence Committee, first reported by Politico, will cause rumbles among lawmakers who charge that the U.S. government – particularly the Obama administration – has studiously avoided linking Islam with the steady stream of deadly attacks that plague Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
At the 2012 Islamic convention in Hartford, Connecticut, Carson said that '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 Qu'ran.'
'And that model that we are pushing in some of our schools meets the multiple needs of students.'
