(Coral Springs, FL) Early last month, United States Representative Keith Ellison showed up in the Gaza Strip with Islamic Relief (IR), a “charity” that the Israeli government has stated is a front for the terrorist organization Hamas.
While he was in Gaza, Representative Ellison held meetings with IR’s staff and Gaza head
, Mohammed Alsousi, and he toured various IR projects.
In May 2006, Israeli security services arrested IR Gaza Program Director Ayaz Ali for transferring funds to various Hamas institutions and organizations.
This is just the latest in a string of Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood associations for the Congressman.
Joe Kaufman, Chairman of Americans Against Hate (AAH), stated, “By holding meetings with groups, such as Islamic Relief, who have been found to be connected to terrorist organizations, Keith Ellison has shown himself to be nothing more than a fifth column Congressman. He needs to be held accountable for his actions, which undoubtedly are a threat to the country he represents.”
