U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn. is the man who broke with tradition and was sworn in with his hand on the Koran. He is the one who allowed his election supporters to shout, "Allahu Akbar!," the same phrase used by terrorists around the world as they commit their heinous crimes. He is also the same man who compared George Bush to Adolf Hitler after the 9/11 attacks. And he is the one who according to reports, "has spoken several times for the Muslim American Society's Minnesota chapter, which promotes the Quran on its website, including statements such as: "Fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them, an seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war)."

Why all of the background on the Congressman? Because amazingly he is serving on a congressional committee dealing with anti-Semitism. How in the world would you put a man whose religion advocates the slaughter of Jews everywhere if they do not convert to his faith on that committee? How does a man whose holy book speaks of Jews as pigs, end up on a committee whose subject matter is anti-Semitism? Joe Kaufman, president of Americans Against Hate, which also calls itself a terror watchdog organization had this to say from the wires;

"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. The Congressional Task Force on Anti-Semitism] needs to end its relationship with Ellison immediately."

A man who follows the Koran so closely that he had it replace the Bible in his swearing in ceremony on a committee to protect Jews? What is next Planned Parenthood in control of the committee for abstinence? Washington DC is the greatest show on earth. Put a tent around it and charge admission!
