Muslim Scholar: Group That Sponsored Ellison's Hajj a 'National Security Threat'
by John Rossomando
The group that paid for U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison's December 2008 hajj to Mecca is a "national security threat," a Muslim scholar wrote in a 2010 email.
Ellison now is vying to become the next Democratic National Committee chief.
The Muslim American Society (MAS), the group that paid $13,500 for Ellison's pilgrimage, had ties with terrorism and had a phony commitment to the American constitutional order, al-Husein Madhany wrote in the email, which was posted on the "Muslim Justice League" listserv. He made these assertions as part of a discussion of how the Muslim community should respond to the Ground Zero mosque controversy.
