Keith Ellison and the Koran controversy

Minnesota Democrat Keith Ellison made history as the first Muslim to be elected to Congress. And already, neo-Cons like Dick Prager (who happens to be Jewish) lament Ellison “will not take his oath of office on the Bible, but on the bible of Islam, the Koran.” Apparently this act “undermines American civilization”.

(In fact, the actual swearing-in ceremony is done by all congressmen together and doesn’t involve any scriptures!)

Another Philadelphia-based neo-Con shock jock
posed this question to Ellison during an interview on CNN on November 14: “Sir, prove to me that you are not working with our enemies”.

One neo-Con blogger asks: “Does Keith Ellison, recently elected to Congress from Minnesota , think he's Allah's son? If so, his allegiance should be sworn in a nation where Muslim is the founding principle.” I never knew Muslim could be a founding principle.

Ellison’s critics forget that the US Constitution is essentially a multicultural and multiconfesional document. Don’t expect multiculturalism-haters like Janet Albrechtsen to be taking up US citizenship in a hurry, regardless of what her Uncle Rupert does!

Ellison won’t be the first Muslim democratic representative to take an oath on the Islamic scripture. In 2002, Labour MP Dr Ashraf Choudhary was sworn into the New Zealand Parliament on the Koran. He was criticised at the time by the current Kiwi Foreign Minister Winston Peters who claimed this represented a breach of proper Parliamentary procedure.

In the home of Westminster Democracy, Parliamentary rules specifically provide for the Oath of Allegiance to involve a Jewish MP holding the Old Testament or a Muslim MP holding the Koran. Baron Ahmed of Rotherham took his oath in the House of Lords whilst holding a Koran.

Returning to Congressman Keith Ellison, Minnesota TV host Don Shelby cited two websites linked to al-Qaida which described Ellison as “one of them, a one way ticket to hell”. With enemies like that ...

Every muslim in Australia must be deported to Iraq. Each will be given a gun and a knife including the children. If they bring back 100 severed human penises they will be allowed back into Australia. This is the best way to stop muslim rapists from taking over Iraq.

Please leave this country. You are not welcome here. Go to America or the UK and get elected to something. You are a nasty jew-hating racist and you look like a a gigantic turd.

Irfan should have Keysar Trads job. He can also have Trads wife and mistresses and children to do with what he wants in the muslim way.I'd love to see the look on their faces when they realise they are becoming the property of a fat paki wife basher like Irfan. Hahahahahaha It's a step down from being leb. How much lower can you get? I'd vote for Irfan because everry vote he gets increases the chance he'd get assassinated by some of these muslims who don't believe in democracy and have no idea how to practice it except by stacking Labor party branches. Muslims are so pathetic. They are even more sub-human than the jews.

What sad individuals frequent this website.

Muslims have been in Australia for over 150 years, the Afghan camel drivers and guides (they read the constellations for explorers as Muslims did for Columbus and other great explorers).

Idiots that make mindless comments like the above are ill-educated dolts who can only sling mud and anonomously at that , shame shame shame.

Muslims/Arabs invented surgery and many medicines that are still used today. They brought sugar to Europe (spain) as well as numerous other acheivements.

But we wouldn't expect small minded nits who probably have never opend a book to know thing like this- go to your local libraries you morons and learn something instead of frequenting the internet with yor base lowlife comments.

The Afghan camel drivers died out and left no descendants because no white woman (not even prostitutes) would sleep with them.

If muslims are so good at surgery why has not a single muslim won the Nobel Prize for Medicine? Why don't you cut up your Medicare card and go at get some surgery down at the local mosque?

They brought Sugar to Spain? Hahahahaha. A muslim brought sugar to Spain! Since when was rowing a boat 5 miles to Gibraltar an amazing accomplishment? I'd call being able to fly from the USA to Afghanistan to drop a bag of sugar through the roof of a mosque an amazing accomplishment. No muslim is capable of doing that. The muslims can have all the sugar they want. Lets put a grain of sugar in every bullet to celebrate the muslims only contribution to the West.

They also brought the Black Death to Europe. What did Muslim surgeons know about curing the Plague? Nothing until the Western Science progressed unaided by the muslims in any way. The Muslims would still be dying of the Plague if it wasn't for the West.

Western Europe would have been better off having no contact with Muslims. Spain was temporarily a superpower not because of any muslim contribution but because the Spaniards had to organise themselves into a decent monarchy and army with which to kill muslims. We have nothing to learn from muslims and never have.

Keysar Trad is the most famous muslim in Australia if you don't count Anthony Mundine and Hilalyi Kebabi. None of whom have ever had a real job. Keyser Trad did temporarily work for the Australian Taxation Office if you call that a real job. We have almost 400,000 muslims trespassing and raping in this country and the best they can come up with is Keyser Trad, Anthony Mundine, a mad mullah and Irfan Useless.

Muslims are no longer welcome in Australia. We don't need any more kebab shops. Please go home.

As far as I know the afghan camel drivers died out becuase of the white australia policy at the time. They weren't even allowed to marry someone from their own religion or country.
