CAIR, Islamic Jihad, And Keith Ellison

Gary Gross at Let Freedom Ring follows in Scott Johnson's footsteps to show ties between CAIR and Islamist terrorism, and remind readers of ties between CAIR and Minnesota Congressional candidate Keith Ellison. The Muslim interest group bought significant television advertising here in Minnesota to explain away its ties to Hamas and its front group, the Holy Land Foundation, in order to remove the political poison from their relationship to Keith Ellison. Gary takes a look at the people who front for CAIR, specifically Ahmed Bedier:

Ahmed Bedier has acted as Sami Al-Arian’s spokesman. One Google search on the internet of both their names provides over 200 results…mostly news stories containing quotes from Bedier about Al-Arian and his legal troubles. He was even the motivating force in trying to get Al-Arian’s trial moved out of Tampa!

Al-Arian, one will recall, recently pled guilty to assisting terrorist organizations (Palestinian Islamic Jihad) and accepted deportation rather than prison time. Nor is he the only CAIR figure with ties to Al-Arian; Nihad Awad also provided support for the Florida professor-cum-terrorist organizer. One wonders why Ellison continues to associate himself with these same people now that Al-Arian has been convicted of supporting terrorism. Read all of Gary's post.
