The Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) now has a representative in congress, on the Judiciary Committee, and poised to pass legislation that will help terrorists.
Rep. Keith Ellison didn’t take long to show his true colors. He is going to team up with Speaker Nancy Pelosi to create a bill outlawing profiling of Muslims at airports and other public places. Hat tip Yid With Lid Ellison has been named to the House Judiciary Committee, and will use that position to ban racial profiling.
Ellison was chosen for his new assignment by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The Judiciary Committee has jurisdiction over issues relating to civil liberties, immigration policy and constitutional amendments, among others … Ellison said he wants to work on a number of issues, including community-oriented policing efforts, immigration, intellectual property rights and privacy concerns including the Internet.

For those of us concerned about illegal aliens, having Ellison connected to immigration in any way is a bad thing. Does anyone think for one minute he would be FOR closing the borders; or FOR sending the illegals home; or FOR changing the law on anchor babies; or FOR stopping health care; or AGAINST special tuition advantages, or the burden on our school systems caused by illegal aliens? BWAHAHahaha
“I look forward to pursuing a progressive agenda in the committee, including the restoration of American citizen’s civil liberties that have come under increasing attack over the past six years,” said Ellison, the first Muslim member of Congress.Ellison, a freshman lawmaker, said this week he’d like to see a ban on racial profiling, an issue that could come up in the Judiciary Committee.
Reaction from Robert Spencer:
In light of these and other cases, are law enforcement officials not justified in directing particular scrutiny at Muslims? After all, neither the American Muslim community nor any other has pronounced takfir on Osama bin Laden or any other jihadist individual or group. (Takfir is an Islamic practice akin to excommunication, involving the declaration that a particular Muslim is actually an unbeliever.) Jihadists move more or less freely among peaceful Muslims worldwide, and those peaceful Muslims have mounted no large-scale, organized attempt to wrest the intellectual and theological initiative away from the jihadists. In light of this, and of the jihadists’ copious and consistent use of Islamic teaching to justify their actions and make new recruits, it would be foolish in the extreme to outlaw, as Pelosi, Conyers, and Ellison wish to do, what is known as “religious profiling.”Would we really all be safer if the one and only element that is common to all jihad attackers – a devout attachment to Islam – were ruled out of bounds as an object of consideration by law enforcement officials? The anti-profiling initiative that is sure to begin soon will necessarily be predicated on the proposition that there is no more reason to be concerned about devout Muslims than about devout Presbyterians or devout Amish.
Unfortunately, the evidence leads in exactly the opposite direction. Robert Spencer, FrontPageMag
Shocking as the very election of Keith Ellison, a/k/a Keith Hakim, a/k/a Keith X Ellison, a/k/a Keith Ellison-Muhammad, to the House of Representatives from Minnesota’s 5th District was, given his history of support for Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam and their radical anti-semitic agenda, his support for cop-killers and terrorists, and his personal history of flouting the law, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
Sweet Spirits of Ammonia says, “Ellison Infiltrates Judiciary Committee”.
Looks like not many folks are taking Sheik Ellison as a threat. However, I am. Lefties, like “Teresa”, who I was debating with over in the comment section at Boker Tov, Boulder, avoid the real questions about Islam, because then it would mean confronting the nature of Islam itself. Islam is more than pretty fabrics and mosaic tiles. Islam is opposed to individual liberties. It is opposed to freedom of speech. It is opposed to equality for women. It is opposed to the equal treatment of Muslims and non-Muslims. The tenets of Islam, as expressed in the Koran that Ellison swore on, contradict the institutions of this country.
Watch for legislation to outlaw “religious profiling”… and worse… “defaming the Prophet” … or smearing Islam or Muslims. …It’s only a matter of time before our First Amendment right of Free Speech goes down the drain.
And that my dear friends is the big question… Just whose rights will Ellison be legislating? Will it be the average American citizen that he his concerned about? That’s very doubtful. He has an agenda. He is in a position to push that agenda. That agenda will NOT make us safer. He will be legislating for CAIR. You know it, I know it, and CAIR knows it.
