Skip to comments.Video: Keith Ellison explains his vote against Iron Dome
Posted on 08/03/2014 4:32:45 PM PDT by Nachum
You may recall that on Friday, in what would have been a Christmas Miracle were it not several months early, Congress actually got something done. It was the passage of a bill approving $225M in funding for Israels Iron Dome defensive missile system. It was quite the bipartisan effort in retrospect, garnering an overwhelming 395 votes in the House with only eight in opposition. One of those eight was Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison, and as The Corner reports, he went out on the weekend gab circuit to explain why he didnt support the measure.
Because a cease-fire is what we should prioritize now, he said when asked to explain his vote on Meet the Press. A cease-fire protects civilians on both sides it doesnt just say, Were only concerned about people on one side.
He pointed to the devastation he witnessed during his trips to Gaza.
Lets go to the brief video, and then well carry on below that.

He’s a muzzie
Why again are US taxpayers paying for this? The IDF can afford something like this.
Iron Dome is haram.
What can be expected from the voters of Minnesota, and also Massachusetts. Enemys of Freedom?
Yep, he is Muslim. Is his Muslim faith overriding what should be his better judgement as an American congressman??? Just asking.
Paraphrasing: “I like cease fires because they let Muslims sneak up and kill more Jews.”
It’s not like we are not getting anything out of the deal. The funds come right back to the U.S. because they are used to buy American products.
He ain’t trying too hard to hide his anti-semitism, is he?
“”””What can be expected from the voters of Minnesota, and also Massachusetts. Enemys of Freedom?””””
Don’t blame the Minnesota. Ellison is from New Somalia formerly known as Minneapolis.

One of those eight was Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison...Beto O'Rourke, D-El Paso, was another of the eight, and "Issa Khlyel, a board member for the Islamic Center of El Paso, approved of O'Rourke's vote", claiming to have been one of the "Palestinians" kicked out by Israelis in 1948. The others were Zoe Lofgren (D-Ca), Jim Moran (D-Va), Justin Amash (R-Mi), Walter Jones (R-NC), Thomas Massie (R-Ky), and Mark Sanford (R-SC).

Still worth reading.
“it’s preventing my muslim brothers engaged in jihad against killing the jews.”
that is the bottom line and we all know it.
“Because my voodoo religion requires it”
We are getting technology out of it. They developed it from the tech side, and we paid for a lot of the R & D. We also get contracts for our workers and companies.
It is a joint venture. US taxpayers want to support Israel's right to exist, and especially for a defensive anti-missile system that works. The US may need to use it to defend against missile attacks on us or other allies. There is a real and present danger that allows the system to be tested, improved, and retested.
The right question for you to ask is why are other nations not paying for this?
I expect that from Dems, nor Pubbies. Very surprising.
I think that Israel should demand that Hamas supply northern Israel with a proportionate number of volunteers for suicide bombings in Gaza, as well as rockets and crews that can be fired indiscriminately into Gaza City.
Call me old school, but Hamas and the people of Gaza should be paying for this. Israel, should crush Gaza and extract every single once of wealth (yeah, I know there isn't much, Muslims like to live in filth). The new norm in warfare is going back in history when spoils went to the victor. We should have done it in Iraq and Afghanistan.
As for Ellison, he is the poster child for Muslims in America. Note: I did not write Muslim Americans, because there isn't such a thing. Remember Ellison the next time you encounter a Muslim.
It’s obvious that kid on the left is being choked to DEATH! Look how his tongue is sticking out. That’s a severe choking reflex. What bastards!
What else do you expect from a Muslim?
I think the technology was developed by Israel and it is something we want to have and will probably need in the near future. Not necessarily for North America but if I was still a troop overseas in a hot zone I’d sleep a lot better knowing we had an Iron Dome!
So we’re helping with research and development costs and will expect to reap them back to our advantage.
When your base or town doesn’t get ripped to shreds by Islamonuts with missiles you tend to not have to spend so much rebuilding and paying death insurance & benefits out to survivors.
The vote that needs explaining is how Minnesotans could send a person like this to congress in the first place. Gawd!!!!!!
I’d read on another thread that Hamass Cowards were doing this....hanging kids from buildings ...to prevent IDF from attacking.
There needs to be a separate thread about this.....it is horrendous what they are doing to their own kids. Of course, our LSM will probably say these pics are fakes.
He’s a muzzie plus other things.
Why isn’t Israel paying for it? We should be spending money to defend our borders, not theirs.
We’ve gotten more out of our investment in IronDome than we ever got out of Solyndra.
I get emails from KE.
Addressed to: “Dear Communist”.
I’d like to see that.
Well he obviously wants Israelis Jews blown to smithereens by his Hamas buddies.
America needs a thorough disinfecting.
A ceasefire protects the criminal Moslems, not the decent people.
So would I.
Thank you so much for being part of my people-powered grassroots campaign.
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support. Without folks like you standing with us, we would not be able to fight back against big corporate money like the Koch Brothers.
When progressives work together we are unstoppable, and we need to come together again in 2014.
We have had some important victories already this year. We secured a wage increase for federal contract workers to $10.10/hr, kept the chained CPI Social Security benefits cuts off the table, and fought back the 52nd attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
While I continue to advocate for job creation, comprehensive immigration reform, protecting Social Security, and equality for ALL people, Tea Party Republicans in Congress are obstructing us from making progress at every turn.
As I do everything in my power to help solve Americas challenges and expand Americas opportunities, I want you to let me know which priorities you want me to focus on in 2014.
Communist, click here to fill out a short survey about what issues get you fired up the most.
We have accomplish a lot, but theres a lot of hard work ahead to make 2014 a success. Lets stay engaged, informed, and keep organizing so we can continue moving forward.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Yes he is a Muslim and is probably afraid they will have a fatwa against him if he actually voted approval of funding Israel’s Iron Dome program. Although that is giving hi an ‘out’.
Ellison is not a likely vote to approve anything that is even remotely neutral on Israel and the Jews. He is an anti-Semite.
And Al Franken
His homeboy at DOJ won't be there forever.
OH, and one more thing - if you want to help the conservatives in Minnesota, you ought to help us elect some more conservatives to the US congress.
I am sick and tired of some Freepers here making broad, stupid comments about my state. Keith Ellison represents his district which is in Minneapolis and largely minority of a certain race, which shall not be mentioned. My representative is Michelle Bachmann. Do you have a problem with her too?
We curently have 2 races in Minnesota’s 7th and 8th congressional districts that are trending against the incumbent Democrats. The Republican candidates would appreciate some funding. These Democrats get lots of money from California liberals. The candidates are: Stuart Mills (MN 8th District) against Rick Nolan; and Torrey Westrum (MN 7th District) against Collin Peterson.
I have donated to both of these candidates. It would be nice if some of you complainers about MN politicians would help us out here.
Ellison didn’t vote for funding the iron dome because he is in league with the Hamas terrorists - plain and simple.
Justin Amash voted against?? (And Mark Sanford??) Jeez.
