Let’s see. How good a judge of patriotism is Keith Ellison? Well, as I first noted in December 2008, Ellison’s Hajj was paid for with $13,350 from the Muslim American Society.
The Muslim American Society is the Muslim Brotherhood’s chief operating arm in the U.S.: “In recent years, the U.S. Brotherhood operated under the name Muslim American Society, according to documents and interviews. One of the nation’s major Islamic groups, it was incorporated in Illinois in 1993 after a contentious debate among Brotherhood members.” — Chicago Tribune, 2004, via the Muslim Brotherhood’s English-language website, Ikhwanweb.
And the Brotherhood’s agenda in the U.S. is subversive: the Muslim Brothers “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.” — “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America,” by Mohamed Akram, May 19, 1991.
So Ellison takes money from a group dedicated to destroying Western civilization from within, and then he stands in judgment of Juan Williams’ patriotism. Give the Congressman credit for chutzpah, and hubris.
