MIM: The Muslims who signed this letter (which is nowhere to find on the internet) are all supporters and members of Muslim Brotherhood Hamas linked organizations. This is a sick and cynical PR ploy to make themselves look "good" in the eyes of gullible non Muslims. In reality they have aided and abetted Hamas and the Muslim
Brotherhood and by extrapolation are complicit in the deaths of both Hadar Goldin and Orin Shaul!
This is a sick and twisted show being made by Muslims over the bodies of dead Jews!
Keith Ellison has spoken many times at fundraisers for CAIR - The Council on American Islamic
Relations which is a Saudi funded front group for Hamas!
Representative Andre Carson has also spoken on behalf of CAIR/Hamas and has has received funding from the group.
"Another recipient of Islamist dollars is Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., which isn't surprising as Ellison is the only serving Muslim in Congress. He received over $130,000 from four groups, including CAIR.Second was Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind..." http://conservativetribune.com/muslim-radicals-money/
The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is a Muslim Brotherhood front group with ties to Hamas.
CAIR has strong ties to the terrorist group Hamas:
"[CAIR] was formed not by Muslim religious leaders throughout the country, but as an offshoot of the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP). Incorporated in Texas, the IAP has close ties to Hamas and has trumpeted its support for terrorist activities." Former chief of the FBI's counter terrorism section, Oliver Revell, called the IAP "a front organization for Hamas that engages in propaganda for Islamic militants."
CAIR's head, Nihad Awad asserted at a 1994 meeting at Barry University, "I am a supporter of the Hamas movement."
Former FBI counter terrorism chief, Steven Pomerantz, stated publicly that, "CAIR, its leaders and its activities effectively give aid to international terrorist groups."
"...CAIR appears to be the subject of a federal grand jury probe and has been frozen out by the FBI out of concerns over the organization's ties to Hamas. An FBI official explained the cut off in a letter last year. In February, a Department of Justice official spelled out the evidence in a Hamas-support trial that justified naming CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator.
Ellison remains close to CAIR nonetheless. He spoke at three CAIR fundraising dinners last year and took to the House floor to defend the organization after another member made critical statements about the group..."

US Muslims to Hamas: Return missing soldiers
In heartfelt letter to Khaled Mashal, 10 leaders of Muslim community in US call for return of the bodies of Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul
Guy Cohen 9/26/16
Ten leaders of the US Mulsim community, including the two Muslim congressmen, called on Hamas to return the bodies of missing IDF soldiers Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul.
"In the name of Almighty God the most merciful and compassionate, we appeal to you on the basis of humanity and charity to release the remains of Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul, two Israeli soldiers killed in action, to their families," read the letter sent to Khaled Mashal, head of the Hamas political wing.
Among the signers of the letter are representatives Keith Ellison of Minnesota and Andre Carson of Indiana - both of the Democrat party; M. Ali Chaudry, the former mayor of Basking Ridge, N.J.; Sayyid Syeed, the director of interfaith alliances at the Islamic Society of North America; and Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, a prominent Muslim leader who directed an unsuccessful and controversial effort to build an Islamic community center near the site of "ground zero," the site of the 9/11 attacks in New York City.
"Both Israelis and Palestinians have felt the pain of war, of losing loved ones and children far too soon," the letter said. "The Holy Qur'an reminds us that ‘Whoever pardons and makes reconciliation will receive his reward from Allah.' We ask you to act upon these words and allow the Goldin and Shaul families to bury their loved ones."
The letter's initiator was Rabbi Marc Schneier, the president of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding. He made it public on Sunday at the annual Washington conference of the Israeli-American Council (IAC), with Goldin's parents in attendance.
MIM: Self styled "rabbi" Marc Schneier is a phony and twisted media whore who has used his (Foundation For Ethnic Understanding (FFEU) to forge ties with and promote radical Muslims and their Islamist agendas. He is also a serial philanderer who was just fired from his position as a "rabbi" due to his affairs. He is a very sick puppy and his behaviour and self described mental health disorders speaks volumes about any group or individual who actually takes him seriously.
"...Schneier, 57, has been married — and divorced — five times. Now he's flitting about the Jewish social circuit with Simi Teitelbaum, a 30-something blond Israeli party girl and former flight attendant who led to the demise of his fifth marriage. His congregation, which had shrugged off his indiscretions for years, has had enough..."http://nypost.com/2016/04/24/
"...Schneier, named by Newsweek as one of the 50 most influential American rabbis, recently told his congregation that he's suffering from bipolar disorder...A spokesman for Rabbi Schneier, Ken Sunshine, said: "Marc Schneier is a renowned worldwide leader, and a pioneer in Muslim-Jewish relations. He has been dealing with a very serious illness, and we will have no comment on rumor or innuendo..." http://failedmessiah.typepad.com/failed_messiahcom/2010/06/famed-orthodox-rabbi-splits-from-4th-wife-123.html
Excerpt from "Rep. Keith Ellison, The Islamists Man On Capitol Hill"
CAIR 's Go-To Congressman
Among all these activities, Ellison's collaboration with CAIR has been the most persistent dating back to his taking office in 2007. He also appears at functions for the Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), both entities created by Muslim Brotherhood members in the U.S. In fact, when Ellison traveled to Saudi Arabia last year to make the hajj, a pilgrimage required of Muslims able to get there once in their lives, the MAS-Minnesota chapter paid his way.
Among other examples:
At the banquet, Ellison touted "Muslim finance" as a solution to the U.S. subprime mortgage crisis. He questioned whether the United States would be facing a subprime mortgage crisis if Muslims were to "truly promote" it. He suggested that many Jews and Christians would favor such financing schemes which could enable them to "actually hang on to their house" and "not be thrown out when the interest rate jumped up."
Ellison also said Americans should "thank God" for groups like CAIR who were working to safeguard their liberties against a reprise of the Salem witchcraft trials.
Al-Arian faces a criminal contempt charge for refusing to testify before a federal grand jury investigating terror financing in northern Virginia, despite a grant of immunity, but Ellison saw the PIJ member as a victim.
"I hope that Dr. Al-Arian and his family have peace" and "justice, and are able to secure a greater quality of justice for their case. You don't declare democracy and the rule of law and then it's that way forever. You have to fight for it," he told WMNF Radio. "That's why we have an appeals process, habeas corpus, various legal instruments to try to get ourselves a just and proper result." Ellison added that "there are some things about his [Al-Arian's] case that I think raise legitimate questions."
In his speech at the banquet, Ellison urged CAIR members in the audience to get jobs in the Obama Administration in order to make "recommendations about how the United States can safely extricate itself from Iraq."
After Ellison and Rep. Baird visited Gaza last February, earning praise from Hamas (see above), MAS Freedom sent out a press release announcing that it "Commends Congressman Ellison and Baird on Call for Immediate Relief and Change in Policy in Gaza."
Congress passed legislation over the objections of Ellison and many of his fellow Democratic lawmakers, protecting private citizens who report suspicious activity and law enforcement authorities who act in good faith based on reasonable suspicion. Read more here.
Ellison's record is clear. Ellison has spoken on the behalf of radical Islamists, defended Hamas over Israel and has a dubious voting record. The Congressman either doesn't know about the nefarious connections of those he works to support, or he doesn't care. It might not be the issue Minneapolis voters hinge their votes on, but it is a part of his public record on which he can be judged.
MIM: One of the organizations backing Shneier's "initiative" is The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). After the 9/11 attacks MPAC president and co founder Salam Al-Marayati told a radio host that:
" If we're going to look at suspects [for 9/11], we should look to the groups that benefit the most from these kinds of incidents, and I think we should put the state of Israel on the suspect list because I think this diverts attention from what's happening in the Palestinian territories so that they can go on with their aggression and occupation and apartheid policies," he said in a radio interview shortly after the attacks in 2001, according to the Los Angeles Times."
"...Al-Marayati's group, MPAC, has been condemned by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) for spreading blood libels about Israel harvesting the organs of Palestinians, according to past statements..." http://freebeacon.com/national-security/muslim-leader-who-called-israel-a-suspect-after-911-meets-with-biden-at-white-house/

http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/715.pdfMuslims speak out against Islamic extremism 'We are the forefront of a major national campaign,' says Rabbi Marc Schneier. Emily Rose , כ"ג באלול תשע"ו, 9/26/2016
"We are the forefront of a major national campaign," Rabbi Marc Schneier, Founder and President of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, told Arutz Sheva at the Israeli American Council National Conference, describing the MASO movement, an acronym for "Muslims Are Speaking Out".
The movement was founded by the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding and is trying to show the world that there are Muslims condemning extremism. The two-year national campaign aims at empowering moderate Muslims and non-Muslims alike to speak out against terrorism and extremism.
Major American Muslim organizations have already backed the initiative, including the Iranian Students' News Agency and the Muslim Public Affairs Council.
In an interview with Arutz Sheva, Rabbi Schneier said that he is at the forefront of a major national campaign this year and that the goal of the campaign is to refute the popular opinion that Muslims don't speak out against Islamic extremism and terrorism.
The latest initiative by Rabbi Schneier is to create a coalition of the most prominent American Muslim leaders to reach out to Hamas leaders, asking them to release the bodies of two Israeli soldiers killed in 2014 during Operation Brother's Keeper that are still being held hostage by Hamas.
Rabbi Schneier today announced the release of an "open letter signed by 10 prominent American Muslim political and religious leaders – including the two Muslim members of the U.S. House of Representatives – which calls on Hamas leader Khaled Meshal to release the remains of Israeli soldiers Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul."
"People who fight for their rights are only honorable when they fight for the rights of all people," Schneier told Arutz Sheva.http://www.israelnationalnews.
