Anti-Israel Congressman likely next DNC head Congressman Keith Ellison is likely to usher in a Democratic Party that is more critical of Israel. This worries many of Israel’s supporters

Many Jewish and Pro-Israel leaders have raised concerns about Keith Ellison, who is considered to be the top candidate to be Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). Their concerns are based both on Elllison’s past associations as well as his stands on issues related to Israel.

Ellison is the first Muslim to be elected to Congress, and represents a staunchly Democratic working class district in Minnesota. He was among the strongest Congressional supporters of Bernie Sanders, and like Sanders, he says he wants a Democratic Party that will, according to his recent fundraising email, “stand up to Wall Street greed and corporate America.” “We must champion the challenges of working families and give voters a reason to show up at the polls in 2018 and beyond,” he said in a statement.

However, his past associations and comments trouble many of Israel’s supporters.

He once identified with Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan and in 1996, acting as a spokesman for the organization, the 33-year old Ellison read a statement in which he supported allegations that “Jews are the most racist white people.” He has since renounced his connection with the organization. In a 2006 apology to Minnesota’s Jewish community, he said, “They were and are anti-Semitic, and I should have come to that conclusion earlier than I did.”

That’s not the only controversy surrounding Ellison’s past associations, however. According to a Daily Caller report, Ellison received roughly $50,000 in campaign contributions in 2006 that were given or raised by officials of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Several senior CAIR employees have been convicted and jailed for ties to terrorism.

According to a recent report in the Washington Free Beacon, the House Ethics Committee investigated Ellison in 2008 for failing to disclose that his pilgrimage to Mecca earlier that year had been funded by a Muslim-Brotherhood affiliated group, the Muslim American Society, which also set up Ellison’s itinerary for the trip. The Chicago Tribune published a lengthy expose on the Muslim Brotherhood’s activity’s in America and documented its close association with the Muslim American Society.

In 2007 he made a comparison between President Bush and 9/11 and Hitler and the Reichstag fire in 1933, according to a Daily Telegraph report at the time. “After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader of that country [Hitler] in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted.” Ellison later apologized for having compared Bush to Hitler and said that he did believe Osama bin Laden was behind the attack.

Ellison’s stands on Israel have also been controversial. He voted against Iron Dome funding during the 2014 war with Hamas in Gaza. He was also a strong supporter of the Iran deal, calling it “a triumph of diplomacy over war and prooof that negotiation is an excellent method of peacemaking. It throws a wrench into the war machine and tells those who profit from conflict: we choose peace.”

He has called for Israel to end the “blockade” of Gaza and called Israel’s military offensive during the 2014 Gaza War “disproportionate.” According to the Arab-American Institute website scorecard, his voting record on Israel has been overwhelmingly critical of Israel and supportive of the Palestinians.

Bernie Sanders appointed Ellison as one of his three delegates to the platform committee, and Ellison argued for including language criticizing Israel’s military presence in the West Bank and condemning the Jewish “settlements” in Judea and Samaria.

Those efforts ultimately failed, but many are concerned with the direction the Democratic Party would take under Ellison’s leadership.

A number of powerful Democratic leaders have announced their support for Ellison to lead the DNC, including Bernie Sanders, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, form Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, and incoming Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, who is also one of the most prominent Jewish members of Congress. Based on this support, Keith Ellison may soon be playing a key role in shaping the Democratic Party’s positions on Israel and the Middle East.

About urielcentenoperez

His leadership and television interviews have gone trough out the world Uriel has done close to 500 interviews in Israel Jerusalem, and many more to come our main goal is to educate the world about Israel and its right to protect herself from any form of terrorism .Israel is facing many challenges and dangers, and has been for a very long time. There is, an unprecedented propaganda campaign initiated by the Arab League to demonize, to discredit and delegitimize the Jewish people and its state, in its own land!. In order to achieve their goals, the Arabs have for more than 30 years resorted to a deliberate misinformation campaign.This propaganda campaign by the Arab League - both in their own countries and for the last three decades exported to Europe and North America - has caused to Israel what would seem irreparable damage and indeed, it was the main culprit in the reawakening of dormant European anti-Semitism Israel has suffered many terror attacks from terrorist .Israel should not bow down to any pressure imposed by the USA the EU. the Quartet nor the UN The current Obama administration continues to work behind the scenes by using John Kerry and others to fulfill their hidden agenda as I call it. The Obama administration is trying to force Israel to give up more land for false peace as we have seen in the past .Judea and Samaria and possibly the Jordan Valley are at the negotiating table and if the so called Palestinians obtain Judea and Samaria and possibly the Jordan Valley, Givat Haroe'eh in the Samaria community of Eli, Ramat Gilad and Giv'at Assaf (also in Samaria), and Mitzpeh Lachish, near Nehogot, outside Hevron. they can easily rain down rockets towards any city within Israel and Israel will be left without defensible borders . We say no land for false peace as we have seen in the past. Barrack Hussein Obama has a hidden agenda against Israel. Israel will face many difficult days ahead See Psalms 83' as we have seen what happened with Gush Katif were almost 9,000 Jews were forced out of their own Jewish land due to US pressure , now Bet El Almuna and Migron and Judea and Samaria face the same consequence .More than 17,000 rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel over 11,000, just to Sderot by Islamist extremist who want the total destruction of my people Israel. Hamas terrorist who are supported by Iran and now Hamas has joined hands with Fatah.Iran Lebanon Hezbollah Syria want the total destruction of Israel and now Al Qaeda and ISIS who are operating in Syria Egypt and the Sinai Desert will do anything in their power to destroy my people Israel and all Jews. The Moslem/ Arabs in that area started calling themselves “Palestinians” nearly 40 years ago. “Palestinian” refers to people who live in Palestine: Arabs (“Arabic speaking peoples”), Bedouins, Druze, Christians, and Jews. No people or nation ever ruled as a sovereign national entity on this land there is no Palestinian language or culture in past history. Palestine, as a country does not presently exist. No Arab nation has their historical roots on the land and no one have cl...aim to this territory other than the Jews. The Jewish rule of this land extended over a period of over 2000 years. Israel became a nation in the land in 1312 BC. God gave them the land in a covenant (Deuteronomy 29:1-30:20) and they lived there See Quote from Quran', Death to the enemies of Allah Those that make war against Allah and His apostle and spread disorder in the land shall be slain or crucified or have their hands and feet cut off on alternate sides, or be banished from the land. They shall be held up to shame in this world and sternly punished in the hereafter: except those that repent before you reduce them. For you must know that Allah is forgiving and merciful.Al-Maidah The Table 5:33-34 This is what radical Islam say's about us Jews' "The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews." (related by al-Bukhari and Muslim). Judea and Samaria also faces many challenges in the days to come as Abbu Massen will try to pressure the entire world and US President Barrack Hussein Obama the EU and the Quartet into giving more land for false peace we saw what happened after the Oslo Accords were signed more terror against Israel . Abbu Massen the PA. leader approached the United Nations this past November 2012 and has ask them to declare them a recognized nation within Israel known borders.
