Islamist Keith Ellison joins Congressional Task Force on Anti Semitism while promoting Muslim Brotherhood agenda
September 4, 2007
THIS FOLLOWS ELLISON'S SPEECH IN FRONT OF GROUP CALLING FOR MURDER OF JEWS(Coral Springs, FL) Congressman Keith Ellison is touting on his website that he has been named to the bi-partisan Congressional Task Force on Anti-Semitism (CTFAS). This, after Ellison gave a speech in front of the Minnesota chapter of the Muslim American Society (MAS-Minnesota), a group that propagates material on its website calling for the murder of Jews.
The Congressional Task Force on Anti-Semitism was founded through the Congressional Human Rights Caucus by Holocaust survivor, Congressman Tom Lantos. The group was launched in the beginning of August. According to the Human Rights Caucus, "The Task Force's primary role is to bring to light specific cases of anti-Semitism and educate Members of Congress, world leaders and citizens about the horrors that these cases pose on society."
Last month, CTFAS invited U.S. Congressman from Minnesota, Keith Ellison, to join its group -- only three months after Ellison gave the Keynote address to the Minnesota chapter of the Muslim American Society, a group propagating the worst of anti-Semitism on its website, including calls for the murder of Jews. Some of the statements found on MAS-Minnesota's site include:
A counter found on the homepage of the American Against Hate (AAH) website is keeping track of the number of days that Ellison has refused to condemn the Muslim American Society for spreading such hatred. It is currently at 89 days. AAH demands that CTFAS remove Congressman Ellison from its group for refusing to condemn MAS.
AAH Chairman Joe Kaufman stated, "It is highly offensive for a Congressional task force on anti-Semitism to allow a man that willingly speaks in front of anti-Semitic groups to be associated with its organization. CTFAS needs to end its relationship with Ellison immediately."
