Muslim Congressman Ellison Won’t Call Armenian Genocide — Instead Calls On America to Recognize “Its Own Genocide”

In today's ,  Turkey's English Daily,  Keith Ellison, the only devout Muslim
member of Congress,  was asked about how he would vote on Armenian Genocide Resolution. An interesting question to pose to a Muslim, considering it was a jihad against millions of Armenians.

It was the genocide that preceded the Holocaust. The Mufti of Jerusalem practiced genocide first in the Armenian genocide
— the systematic genocide of the Armenian population under the Islamic
Ottoman Empire during and just after World War I.  The use of massacres
and deportations involving forced marches under conditions designed to
lead to the death of the deportees led to a total number of Armenian
deaths of  one-and-a-half  to two million. Mufti Amin Al-Husseini swore allegiance to the Ottoman Empire  during the
Armenian genocide [i]
. [ii]
He was an officer stationed in Smyrna and
first-hand in the
. One and a half million Christians were 
slaughtered under
the sword of Islamic Jihad by the Ottoman Army.  Allegiance to Ottoman
and Islamic world take-over was echoed by Osama Bin Laden in his
post-September 11 declaration. Osama Bin Laden makes direct reference to the end
of Ottoman Empire and thus proclaims his
allegiance to its notion
of Islamic dominion.  

Ellison's answer to the question of how he would vote on the House Foreign Relations Committee's  Armenian Genocide Resolution, H. Res. 252, on March 4th, is particularly disgusting – not because he slithers out, "I am still
developing my position. I would like to know how this affects Turkey and
Armenia’s relationship. Is it going to help the relationship, improve
it or degrade it? I need to know the answer on that before I decide on
this resolution…."
What difference does that make? A genocide is a genocide, no matter what. Period. What contempt  the devout Ellison has for the Christian dead. It was jihad and Ellison is a believer.

But wait, it gets worse. He spreads taqiya and hate and lies for America. He goes on to equate America, the best of humanity with the worst of humanity, "America still has not recognized its
own genocide or genocides that it commits."

He then goes on to extol the plurality and tolerance of the newly fundamental Islamicized Turkey. I kid you not. Turkey Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan rejected attempts to call
Turkey the representative of moderate Islam. "It is unacceptable for us to agree with such a definition. Turkey has
never been a country to represent such a concept. Moreover, Islam cannot
be classified as moderate or not,"
Erdoğan said, speaking at the
Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies.

Turkey is sliding backwards towards "pure Islam." It is abuzz with coup plots.

This time around
12 army officers have been formally charged for plotting to overthrow the
government in 2003. Dozens more have been arrested in what seems to be a purge
in the offing, and an effort to weaken the influence of the secular military.

It astounds me that this first time Congressman sits on the House Foreign Relations Committee. Now that's frightening.

Congressman Keith Ellison: 'Turkey is a country on the forefront'

I had a chance to have a conversation with Congressman Keith Ellison,
the first Muslim congressman in the history of the United States, this
week at the U.S. House of Representatives. Ellison won the open seat for
Minnesota's 5th congressional district in 2006 and is also the first
African-American elected to the House from Minnesota.

In addition to being the first and still-only Muslim congressman, Mr.
Ellison is also member of the House Foreign Relations Committee, a key
committee that will take the Armenian Genocide Resolution, H. Res. 252,
to vote on March 4.

I was both curious to hear his story so far as a Muslim congressman,
but also wanted to get in touch with him before the voting day and hear
about his position over the issue first hand.

I started the interview by first asking his position on the
resolution because of the urgency of the matter. He said: "I am still
developing my position. I would like to know how this affects Turkey and
Armenia’s relationship. Is it going to help the relationship, improve
it or degrade it? I need to know the answer on that before I decide on
this resolution… Is this resolution going to improve the well-being of
people in Armenia or Turkey or anywhere?"

Congressman Ellison also said America still has not recognized its
own genocide or genocides that it committe
d, yet tries to give lessons
to the other countries. Ellison said: "And you know, we have not
acknowledged yet the genocide that was committed against the Native
American tribes."

Congressman Ellison basically was telling me that everybody should
clean his or her own house first before telling others what to do
Ellison was clearly uncomfortable with the situation he is in and it was
pretty obvious to see from his attitude while discussing the issue.
Furthermore, it was also my impression from his statements that he does
not find the U.S. Congress is suitable and qualified taking a such
decision over the events that happened nearly 100 years ago and in a
country that is half-way around the world.

Genocide is genocide. The polite conversation of barbarians.

I also asked him how he would describe serving in the U.S. Congress
as a Muslim congressman and if there was any particular difficulty to
that. Ellison said: "Being a Muslim in the Congress has been a very
interesting perspective. I have been very well treated by my colleagues,
other than some occasional bad behavior and some ignorant things said
about Islam."

There was a huge controversy in America when the congressman first
got elected and announced his intention to use the Koran instead of the
Bible at his photo-op at the swearing in ceremony and this drew some
criticism especially from some conservative columnists.

OT but related: Obama campaigned on the promise of recognizing the Armenian genocide, but reneged.
