Consider the following quotes before I reveal their source and their relevance;

"the U.S system of democracy as "the antithesis of Islam" and argued no man has the right to make laws outside Allah's laws expressed in the Quran. "

"There is a basic difference between Islam and this form of democracy," he says. "The basic difference is that in Islam it is [Allah's] law as expressed in the Quran and the Sunna that is the supreme law within the limits of which people have the right to legislate. "

"No one can be a Muslim who makes or freely accepts or believes that anyone has the right to make or accept legislation that is contrary to that divine law"

"there is absolutely no compromise: Any belief that contradicts Islam is false."

The source is Omar Ahmad Shahin, President of North American Imams Federation who lectures at the same American Open University as guess who? Recently elected Minnesota Congressman Ellison. Ellison spoke to the North American Imams Federation, or NAIF, at the group's Nov. 19 conference in Minneapolis, and also spoke at a breakout session for the American Open University, the radical Islamic school that trains many of NAIF's more than 150 members, who control mosques across America. Ellison also met with New York imam Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.)

From the wires here are some more issues concerning those Ellison has been affiliated with;

"NAIF-affiliated American Open University, has raised a number of red flags at the FBI, including the fact that:

It's founder and chairman, Jaafar Idris, is a Sudanese radical on the Saudi payroll who was recently deported for visa fraud and spreading extremism in America. Idris, like NAIF's Shahin, studied Islam in Saudi Arabia and Sudan and says he has "great respect" for the father of the purist Wahhabi movement followed by Osama bin Laden – Saudi theologian Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab.

A co-founder of the school, Salah As-Sawi, is a professor at Al-Azhar in Egypt, a bastion of the dangerous Muslim Brotherhood, which gave rise to Hamas and al-Qaida. In fact, American Open University is a fully accredited satellite campus of Al-Azhar. As-Sawi worked with Idris at the Institute of Arabic and Islamic Sciences in Washington, a propaganda center set up by the Saudi Embassy to spread Wahhabism in America. It was raided after 9/11 and is still under surveillance by federal authorities.

Alumni of the "university" include convicted members of the Virginia Jihad Network, who trained to kill American troops overseas.

The school has received funding from a suspected al-Qaida front that has expressly advocated suicide attacks and using airliners as weapons. The Islamic Assembly of North America, or IANA, is bankrolled by the Saudi religious minister who stayed at the same Washington-area hotel as the hijackers the night before they attacked the Pentagon. (He feigned a heart attack when FBI agents tried to question him and was subsequently evacuated with other Saudi officials on White House-approved escape flights after 9/11.)

Oh yeah, the transcripts of Ellisons talk and breakout session are not available to the public. Anyone concerned yet?
