Minesotta got the honour and the distinction to send the first muslim to Congress. Keithh Ellison a democrat(surprise, surprise), has been elected to the House of Representatives.
So where will Ellison's first banquet as congressman-elect be? At the DNC? With his campaign staff? No way! He is going straight to the Council for American-Islamic Relations. While it professes to be a muslim lobbying group, CAIR's connection with some islamic terrorist organizations and some statments from prominent CAIR memebers make it a rather shady organization to say the least. It will be interesting to see Ellison's voting record, especially concerning terrorism and Middle East.
Incidentally, watch this video posted on the Little Green Footballs weblog. So much for the democrat separation of religion and politics.
