Rep. Keith Ellison, known for defending the Islamic State group against allegations of being Islamic, just decided to upgrade himself from a mere jihad apologist to a full-fledged jihad lobbyist.
He did so by travelling to the terrorist-ridden nation of Somalia to help some terror-sympathizing constituents in Minnesota funnel money right into the hands of … wait for it … radical Islamic terrorists.
These transfers of money are allegedly designed to help American Somalis support their friends and family members back home. More often than not, however, the money winds up in the hands of the jihadists.
“I told my constituency I would come here and work for the United States and Somalia relationship, and I am doing that in today’s visit,” Ellison announced at a news conference in Mogadishu.
Yet logic suggests that helping American Somalis indirectly fund terror does nothing whatsoever to aid that relationship. If anything, it puts the Somali government, which battles daily with militants from the Al-Shabaab jihadist group, in an even more precarious position.
It also does nothing to help the Minnesota legislator’s own country in its bid to wipe out Islamic terrorism. But that Ellison would try to spin what he’s really doing should be no shocker, given his past actions.
In 2008, for instance, Ellison accepted a $13,350 donation from the Muslim American Society, which according to Steven Emerson, director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, “is the de facto arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S.” (H/T Jihad Watch)
It should be as clear as day to everyone that the Democrat congressman aligns himself much more closely with radical Islamic ideology than he does with good old-fashioned American values.
This raises a question: Why is this man in Congress, when he ought to be in prison?
