Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison Slammed by Top Democrat

By

There is much anticipation in some quarters that America’s first openly Muslim congressman, Keith Ellison, could soon become the new head of the Democrat Party.

But if that happens, some warn that the Democrats will transition from a phony veneer of pro-Israel and pro-Jewish sentiment to being openly anti-Semitic.

“If you go back to his positions, his statements, his speeches, the way’s he voted, he’s clearly an anti-Semite and anti-Israel individual,” said Israeli-American media mogul Haim Saban.

Saban, a long-time Democrat, was the largest donor to the failed presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton.

Ellison, who is the leading candidate for chairman of the Democratic National Committee, was recorded stating in 2010 that he believes an all-powerful Jewish cabal is manipulating American politics.

Similar anti-Semitic libels have been used in the past to justify violence against the Jewish people.

Saban acknowledged that in recent years Ellison has moderated his rhetoric, but maintained that “words matter, actions matter more. Keith Ellison would be a disaster for the relationship between the Jewish community and the Democratic Party.”
