KEITH ELLISON TO SPEAK AT (UNINDICTED CO-CONSPIRATOR) CAIR BANQUET TONIGHT
AMERICANS AGAINST HATE CALLS ON ELLISON TO RESIGN
(Coral Springs, FL) Tonight, June 16, 2007, Congressman Keith Ellison will be a featured
speaker at the First Annual Banquet
of the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Minnesota). This, after CAIR had just been named an “unindicted
” in a Hamas financing case put forward by the United States government.
Ellison, less than three weeks ago, was the keynote speaker at the 4th Annual
of the Minnesota chapter of the Muslim American Society (MAS-Minnesota).
While he spoke, MAS-Minnesota had on its website material discussing waging war
against non-Muslims and the murdering of Jews. The material is still located on
the group’s site.
Following his appearance, Americans Against Hate (AAH) demanded that Congressman Ellison denounce MAS
for its anti-Semitic and anti-Christian statements or resign from office. Ellison
has remained silent on the issue.
AAH Chairman Joe Kaufman, stated, “Being that Keith Ellison refuses to denounce
the Muslim American Society, and being that he is now going to be speaking at an event
sponsored by a group named by the U.S. government as a co-conspirator to Hamas, we have
no choice but to call on Keith Ellison to resign from his held office as United States
Representative. Congressman Ellison, by openly cavorting with bigoted and pro-terrorist
elements in our society, can no longer work for the best interests of our nation.”
Also speaking at the CAIR-Minnesota banquet will be CAIR’s National Executive Director,
Nihad Awad, and CAIR’s National Communications Director, Ibrahim Hooper. The event will be
taking place at 6:30 pm, at the Central Park Ballroom, in Woodbury, Minnesota.
