Yo Keith, how about supplanting the word American for Muslim? That’s what makes America great.
1st Muslim congressman thrills crowd in Dearborn Discover the Netwrok
Speaking in Dearborn late Sunday night, the first Muslim elected to Congress
told a cheering crowd of Muslims they should remain steadfast in their faith and
push for justice.
Justice for who?
"You can’t back down. You can’t chicken out. You can’t be afraid. You got to
have faith in Allah, and you’ve got to stand up and be a real Muslim," Detroit
native Keith Ellison said to loud applause.
Many in the crowd replied "Allahu akbar" — God is great.
Ellison, a Minnesota Democrat elected to the U.S. House in November, has been
the center of a national debate in recent weeks over Islam and its role in
politics. Ellison has said he would take his oath of office on the Quran, the
Muslim holy book, igniting a storm of criticism from some commentators.
U.S. Rep. Virgil Goode, a Republican from Virginia, said in a letter to
constituents this month that the election of Ellison and other Muslims poses a
danger to the country.
But Ellison, speaking at the annual convention of the Muslim American Society
and the Islamic Circle of North America, said that Muslims can help teach
America about justice and equal protection.
Islam is going to teach America about justice and equal protection (care to get a witness? say Ayaan Hirsi Ali?)
"Muslims, you’re up to bat right now," he said. "How do you know that you
were not brought right here to this place to learn how to make this world
better?" More here
