Nihad Awad, CAIR founder and Ellison's close associate has been quoted as proclaiming:
"'Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant.
The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in
America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth."
The Muslim Brotherhood has also stated its intentions:
[Muslims] must understand that all their work in America is a kind of grand
Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and
"sabotaging" their miserable house bytheir hands and the hands of the
believers so that it is eliminated and Allah's religion is made victories over
all religions . . . ."
Keith Ellison has been a keynote speaker for Muslim American Society, which is a
branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.
It should also be noted that CAIR, the Muslim American Society, and the Muslim Brotherhood are
all known terrorist organizations or have close ties to terrorist organizations. A US Congressman has no business cozy-ing up to such.
