Ellison: Profiling of American Muslims is ‘troubling’
startribune.com ^ | July 10, 2014

Democratic U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim to serve in Congress, said a report that the National Security Agency and FBI were tracking the email of five prominent American Muslims is “troubling because it suggests that Americans were targeted because of their faith and civic engagement.”

Documents leaked by former government contractor Edward Snowden revealed that the Muslim attorneys and activists were targeted for surveillance from 2002 to 2008 under a program meant to uncover terrorists and foreign agents, according to an analysis from online news organization The Intercept.

Among the documents released were training materials that used the name “Mohammed Raghead” as an example of a terrorist suspect.

“Profiling based on religion breeds distrust and resentment in communities that are potential partners in the fight against crime,” Ellison said.

“Muslim-Americans continue to face bigotry and hatred, but the NSA’s former spying practices undermine our entire nation’s progress towards greater inclusion....”

Hey, killing 3000 Americans on 9-11 was pretty troubling too.

You are about as naive as they come, Mr. Ellison.

And by the way, slam is not a religion by any stretch of the imagination - it’s a violent political ideology; a cancer to us and the world.

Representative Ellison is a Muslim, and I find that troubling. Islam is the mortal enemy of Western civilization, and has been for nearly fourteen centuries. There will never be an amicable melding of our cultures. Muslims are rapacious and very much determined to dominate the world just like the NAZI’s and the Bolsheviks. Their madness and cruelty will make the aforementioned two look like rank amatuers.

I would like to see what “Democratic U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim to serve in Congress,” has to say about the Muslims attacking Americans in his original country.

I sure don't have any problem with it! They're doing it in Australia with a real "stand up" woman Prime Minister that almost sounds like Maggie Thatcher!!!

She says that Inmigrants must adapt to their culture, not citizens to inmigrant's cultures!!!

The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers.

"Muslim-Americans continue to face bigotry and hatred"

Muslim-Americans should try vigorously speaking out against terrorism and violence perpetrated by Muslims and should make great efforts to try to get Islam to reform. That ought to go a long ways towards convincing people they shouldn't be lumped in with the bad guys.

It is true that the government is spying and eves dropping with little regard to the Constitution. It is also true that many groups within the Muslim community have do and will in all likelihood continue to support terrorist organizations and as such some scrutiny will of course be drawn their way.

There is no such thing as an “American” muslim.

They should either convert or be driven out of the country. Every mosque should be bulldozed down.

Mecca and Medina should be turned into a sea of glass.

Dome of the Rock should be bulldozed down also.

Until the “muslim” proble is taken care of, they will always be a problem to civilization.

There was a showing of “War Between the Worlds” and Dignitaries from around the world came to the World Premier.

On the way out the Saudi Ambassador was talking to a US General and says
“Very realistic. In fact somewhat scary, but they did have a good representation of Earths countries coming together to fight the Aliens. However, I notice there were no Muslim forces”.

The General, with a twinkle in his eye replied
“Sir this movie is in the future”.

“... and should make great efforts to try to get Islam to reform.”

Reformation was specifically forbidden by Mohammad. To reform Islam is to deny Mohammad. In other words, it isn’t happening now or later.
