Anti-Muslim Group Wants Muslim Rep. Keith Ellison Removed From Anti-Semitism Task Force

Posted by | October 10, 2010 10:18 | Filed under: Top Stories

The idea of a Muslim on a Congressional task force on anti-Semitism is just too much for a group ironically called Americans Against Hate, which spends much of its time bashing Muslims.  The group’s founder, Joe Kaufman, wants committee chair Ron Klein (D-Ft. Lauderdale) to remove Ellison. (h/t Think Progress)

Kaufman said, “Representative Klein has both the authority and the responsibility to remove Keith Ellison from the Congressional Task Force on Anti-Semitism, a group that Ellison has no business being on. We demand that he does so immediately. Every day that Ellison sits on that task force is an offense to those who fell victim to anti-Semitism and/or radical Islam.”

Kaufman says his group is targeting the nation’s first Muslim Congress member because of Ellison’s radical activities and his “associations” with groups that are “connected” to terrorism. The proof Kaufman presents is Ellison’s trip to Gaza in April.

Kaufman has also been busy railing against Muslim family day at Six Flags Great Adventure, as in this rant on Fox News.
