Islam in Minnesota

I wonder, is it a coincidence that some much activity from Minnesota Muslims have been in the news these last couple of years.

Weren't the taxi drivers who refused to take passengers with seeing-eye dogs or carrying alcohol from Minnesota? The "flying-imams" who caused an uproar, belittling and mocking non-muslims by their overtly loud praying, asking for unnecessary seat belt extenders, and in general acting obnoxious and who then sued the airlines and individual passengers who demanded the imams be taken off the flight, on a Minnesota flight?

The 5th Congressional District elected Keith Ellison in November 2003,who subsequently DEMANDED to take his oath of office on a Qur'an. Mr. Ellison has been involved in many questionable activities before and since his election, which btw, does NOT prove he is a loyal America, it only proves he is a Congressman.
From "Let Freedom Ring" here's some info on what Keith has been up to:

This week, we learned that Keith Ellison and Jim McDermott became co-sponsors of the impeachment bill written by Dennis Kucinich, H.R. 333.

Let’s take a look at the co-sponsors of the impeachment bill:

US Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA) made a speech on the House Floor, “The Vice President Should Resign or Face Impeachment,” announcing his plans to support the bill. US Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) also joined yesterday.

The other total supporters include original sponsor, US Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), plus US Reps. Yvette Clarke (D-NY), William Lacy Clay (D-MO), Barbara Lee (D-CA), Janice Schakowsky (D-IL), Maxine Waters (D-CA), Lynn Woolsey (D-CA), and Albert Wynn (D-MD), so far.

Here’s Keith Ellison’s take on the impeachment bill:

“They certainly deserve to be impeached [but]…the fact is that if we filed for impeachment now given everything that’s already happened, based on what we know so far, it would consume the news cycle to the point where that’s all we’d be dealing with and talking about. I’m a little concerned that it might overshadow other things we have to do. I’m a little concerned about that, given the situation. But do they deserve it? Hell yeah,” Ellison told in an interview published two weeks ago.

Mr. Ellison is a fine person to talk about impeachment. Michael Brodkorb of Minnesota Democrats Exposed reported last fall that Kathleen Anderson, then the district director of former DFL Rep. Martin Sabo, endorsed Tammy Lee, the Independence Party candidate for MN-5, saying that Ellison was a scofflaw:

The primary responsibility of any elected official is to make the laws. At the very least, our lawmakers should set a good example by obeying those laws. Is that asking too much? Apparently so, when it comes to Mr. Ellison. Time and again, he has demonstrated a scofflaw attitude.

What is a scofflaw? The dictionary says “a contemptuous law violator.” In fairness, contemptuous may be too strong a word to describe Mr. Ellison’s behavior. I can not know with certainty Ellison’s motivations. To be kind, perhaps he is simply disorganized when it comes to these matters. Nonetheless, he has repeatedly, and very recently, violated the laws the rest of us routinely obey.

Jim Moran, who’s made some rather anti-semitic comments in the past, will be officially listed as a co-sponsor eventually, too. Here’s a sampling of Moran’s anti-semitic statements:

Moran responded to a woman who rose to identify herself as Jewish and wonder aloud why more Jews were not participating in the forum. Referring to the seeming inevitability of war, the Congressman commented: “If it were not for the strong support of the Jewish community for this war with Iraq, we would not be doing this. The leaders of the Jewish community are influential enough that they could change the direction of where this is going, and I think they should.”

It should be pointed out that Keith Ellison was the keynote speaker at the MAS-MN 4th annual convention. AAH Chairman Joe Kaufman wrote this press release asking Keith Ellison to denounce the anti-semitic remarks on MAS-Minnesota’s website or to resign:

On the weekend of May 25th, Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison gave the keynote address in front of the Muslim American Society of Minnesota (MAS-Minnesota), at the group’s 4th annual convention. While Ellison spoke, the group was actively spreading vitriolic hatred and violence aimed at Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims via its website.

The following statements are found on the MAS-Minnesota site,

“The Holy Prophet (and through him the Muslims) has been reassured that he should not mind the enmity, the evil designs and the machinations of the Jews…”
“In view of the degenerate moral condition of the Jews and the Christians, the Believers have been warned not to make them their friends and confidants.”
“If you gain victory over the men of Jews, kill them.”
“The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say, ‘O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.’”
“May Allah destroy the Jews, because they used the graves of their prophets as places of worship.”
“A Muslim must always worship Allah and wage jihad until death in order to reach his ultimate goal… Regularly make the intention to go on jihad with the ambition to die as a martyr.”
On Monday, June 4th, the Chairman of Americans Against Hate (AAH), Joe Kaufman, phoned the local and Washington, D.C. offices of Congressman Ellison to demand that he denounce MAS. Kaufman has received no response from the Congressman or anyone in his offices.

Kaufman stated, “When Keith Ellison ran for office, he denounced the anti-Semitism of Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam (NOI), a group that he was previously affiliated with. We demand that he do the same to the Muslim American Society. It is not only improper for a United States Representative to participate with such groups, but it is a danger to national security.”

This is at least the second time Keith Ellison has spoken in front of the Muslim American Society. The other time was right after he was elected to office, in December of 2006. As well, the Executive Director of the MAS Freedom Foundation, Mahdi Bray, campaigned for Ellison.

For further information, read Kaufman’s FrontPage Magazine article, “Keith Ellison’s Dangerous Liaisons.”

Joe Kaufman is available for interview. E-mail:

Then there’s Cynthia McKinney’s ties to radical Islam:

A list of campaign donors was found to include some with links to terrorism, Abdurahman Alamoudi, the former executive director of the American Muslim Council, and former college professor Sami Al-Arian.

Abdurahman Alamoudi was a major fundraiser for the legal defense fund for Omar Abdel-Rahman, the man who organized the first World Trade Center bombings. Sami Al-Arian is about to be deported after pleading guilty to a single count of conspiracy to provide services to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

What causes Democrats to associate with radical Islamic organizations? What causes them to make anti-semitic remarks?

Better yet, why hasn’t Keith Ellison denounced the anti-semitic statements on MAS-Minnesota’s website yet? It isn’t like 32 days isn’t enough time to denounce the anti-semitic quotes.


Now we have the Tariq ibn Zeyad Academy's out and out teaching Islam in public schools. Administrators attack the media investigating the story and folks are outraged!

I wonder, are people outraged at: 1) The media was attacked at the school; 2) Tax-payer money is funding this Islamic school; 3) children are being forced to pray to Allah; 4) The State of Minnesota and it's Education Department have been lied to; 5) Administrators at The Education Department of Minnesota have been collecting paychecks and not doing their jobs; 6)Being taken by surprise that their state is so Islamized and are mostly in the dark about it: 7) All of the above.

Now we come to Sharia Law and the rumor that Minnesota has been targeted as one of the states where Muslims are and will be pushing harder for Sharia Law Courts to be established. What if anything does Congressman Ellison have to do with this, I wonder?

The writing is on the wall Minnesota. The wall of seperation through Islamic demands for special treatment and Sharia Law has it's foundations already assembly by the taxi drivers, the imams, your Congressman, and your educational departments (check out what is happening in your 7th grade classrooms and Universities and colleges through the MSA), and let's not forget the 75% of American mosques where radical literature and radical preaching is taking place. Imams demanding the overthrow of the U.S.Constitution! And then there is the 26% of American Muslims polled who agreed that violent Jihad is acceptable.

These are the things that we know about Mr. and Mrs. and Miss Minnesotans! What else is going on in your state and our nation for that matter that we don't know about yet.
