Keith Ellison's Congressional Resolution Implementing A "Global Marshall Plan" Supported By Radical Imam


October 28, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - LLC - On April 3, 2008 Representative Keith Ellison [D, MN] the nation's first Muslim Congressman, introduced Resolution 1078 to the House Foreign Affairs Committee. [These writers have published extensively about Keith Ellison's Islamist ties see for example, Keith Ellison, The Wahhabist Choice for Congress,]

The resolution calls for the implementation of a Global Marshall Plan which will "demonstrate the commitment of the United States to peace and prosperity," stating that it, "must operate within the ethical framework of generosity and magnanimity, not merely of instrumentality, and to be successful and must be perceived as more than a new attempt to extend influence into the world." [source,]

Rather than originating domestically, it is rather a German led initiative funded by companies and individuals, who describe their mission as, "The state of the poor, the gap between north and south, cultural conflicts, security and environmental issues; these are all the problems which ask for an improved and binding global framework that brings the global economy into harmony with environment, society and culture..." [source,]

This plan is also, "the centerpiece of the foreign policy vision" of The Network of Spiritual Progressives headed by Michael Lerner, a leftist, "rabbi" who publishes Tikkun magazine. According to Lerner's website, NSP, "was founded based on three basic tenets":

"Changing the Bottom Line in America, Challenging the Misuse of Religion, God and Spirit by the Religious Right, Challenging the Many Anti-Religious and Anti-Spiritual Assumptions and Behaviors That Have Increasingly Become Part of the Liberal Culture." [source,]

The NSP "version" of the Global Marshall Plan advises:

"It's the best way to get out of Iraq and empower the progressive forces all over the world -- by adopting a strategy of Generosity to secure homeland security, in place of the current strategy of Domination that has led us and others into endless wars and into the fantasy of a war on terrorism that will keep justifying every future war dreamt up by the fearful and the militarists."

This extreme template has been endorsed by radical Imam Zaid Shakir the author of, "Jihad or Terrorism?" [source,]

In an imaginary presidential stump speech authored by Shakir, he said he would use money trimmed from the military budget, "to finance a Global Marshall Plan."[source,]

Keith Ellison's introduction of this ill-considered resolution is only the latest proof that he is stealth jihadi, partnering with the radical left and Islamist forces to subvert the United States from within, in this case attacking U.S. sovereignty.


MIM: The text of Resolution 1078

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that a Global Marshall Plan holds the potential to demonstrate the commitment of the United States to peace and prosperity.


April 3, 2008

Mr. ELLISON (for himself, Mr. MORAN of Virginia, and Mr. CLEAVER) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs


Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that a Global Marshall Plan holds the potential to demonstrate the commitment of the United States to peace and prosperity.

Whereas, after World War II, the United States established a program to provide for the reconstruction of Europe, named after General George C. Marshall and commonly referred to as the `Marshall Plan', which has been hailed by leaders of World War II allied and enemy countries as the most magnanimous act by the United States in history;

Whereas by providing assistance to Europe through the Marshall Plan, the United States recognized the direct link between economic growth and political stability, thereby investing resources into economic development and assistance;

Whereas the Marshall Plan made possible new measures of international cooperation through the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and other institutions that have enhanced the security, freedom, and prosperity of the United States and the world;

Whereas the United States has established foreign assistance programs, as described in the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, with a goal of the `encouragement and sustained support of the people of developing countries in their efforts to acquire the knowledge and resources essential to development and to build the economic, political, and social institutions which will improve the quality of their lives';

Whereas annual United States appropriations for foreign development assistance in its many forms, whether considered as a proportion of the Federal budget or as a proportion of gross domestic product, never again have reached the levels seen during the first years of the Marshall Plan;

Whereas more than 1,000,000,000 people worldwide live on less than $1 per day, and another 1,600,000,000 people struggle to survive on less than $2 per day, according to the World Bank;

Whereas at the United Nations Millennium Summit in 2000, the United States joined more than 180 other countries in committing to work toward the United Nations Millennium Development Goals to improve life for the world's poorest people by 2015;

Whereas the United Nations Millennium Development Goals include the goal of reducing by one-half the proportion of people worldwide, between 1990 and 2015, who live on less than $1 per day, cutting in half the proportion of people suffering from hunger and unable to access safe drinking water and sanitation, reducing by two-thirds child mortality, ensuring basic education for all children, and reversing the spread of HIV/AIDS and malaria, while sustaining the environment upon which human life depends;

Whereas United States citizens and nongovernmental organizations have proposed a new Global Marshall Plan, including--

(1) providing enough funding to eliminate global poverty, homelessness, hunger, inadequate education, and health care, plus restoring the global environment;

(2) creating international nongovernmental mechanisms for receiving funds contributed through foreign aid and alternative sources of financing, and for distributing such funds in a way that is environmentally sensitive, respectful of native cultures, safeguarded against corruption, protected from manipulation to serve elite interests, and empowering of the people in each region;

(3) revising existing trade and other agreements in which the United States is currently involved so that such agreements favor improving the lives of the poor of the world; and approaching future agreements with like intent;

(4) creating a greatly expanded Peace and Justice Corps of the United States that would provide ways for people with useful skills to volunteer two years at any age toward the goals of the Global Marshall Plan;

(5) providing training to foreign militaries to become experts in ecologically sensitive construction of those aspects of their own societies that need relief and reconstruction, including agriculture, health care, housing, infrastructure, education, computers, and other appropriate technology; and

(6) providing training to children and adults worldwide in techniques of nonviolent communication, diversity, environmental sustainability, family and parental support, stress reduction, emergency health techniques, diet and exercise, and caring for others who are in need of help; and

Whereas the attacks against the United States that occurred on September 11, 2001, and the subsequent global war on terrorism, have enhanced United States strategic concern for the economic and political future of countries worldwide: Now, therefore, be it
