Rep. Ellison says U.S. trying to ensure safe return of missing Somalis

Well, Keith Ellison has been busy repaying all those Muslim votes he got. He's been doing that by undermining the security of America with his defense of Somali Muslim refugees turned international terrorists.

All the boo-hooing and gnashing of teeth about the evil Imam's who have subverted these otherwise upstanding Somali youth is nothing but crocodile tears. These young men could not just sashay off to Somalia to kill in the pursuit of Jihad without lots of support and money from the Somali community at large.

Any citizen or refugee under protection of the United States who violates our law and fights in a foreign war is no longer deserving of American protection. There can be no mitigating circumstances or other excuses for taking advantage of American hospitality and generosity and then betraying that trust, in this case, by fighting against the moderate Muslim government of Somalia.

Keith is a poster boy for not allowing Muslims to enter American politics. When a Muslim enters American politics, because he has accepted Islam, he has automatically breached the doctrine of Separation of Church and State. A Muslim cannot pledge true allegiance to anything except Islam. It is every Muslim's duty to work toward the total dominance of Islam over all of humanity.

Keith has chosen sides and his side is Islam.


Rep. Ellison says U.S. trying to ensure safe return of missing Somalis

St. Paul, Minn. — Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison said the U.S. government is trying to ensure the safe return of some of the young Somali-American men believed to be fighting with a terrorist group in their homeland.
Ellison said he has been included in classified briefings about efforts to bring the missing men back to the Twin Cities.

At least four Somali-American men from Minnesota who left to fight in the Horn of Africa have died there in recent months.

One of youngest, a skinny teenager from Minneapolis named Burhan Hassan, was trying to leave the fighting and make his way to the U.S. embassy in neighboring Kenya, according to family members. They believe a fellow member of the extremist group Al-Shabaab shot Hassan to death when the group learned of his plans to escape.

Congressman Keith Ellison thinks the U.S. should try to retrieve the Minnesotan men who may have been misled into joining Al-Shabaab and want out.
"We can't have a knee-jerk emotional reaction," Ellison said. "We've got to have an intelligent reaction. If a young person says, 'I have been lied to. I don't like these people. I want to get away from them,' we should help them do that, as long as we know that does not create a public safety issue for Minnesotans and Americans."
Ellison wouldn't offer more details of the plans, saying the discussions were classified. But he said the efforts involve private non-governmental organizations as well as government entities. A State Department official did not respond to requests for interviews.

Ellison, whose district includes the largest concentration of Somali-Americans in the country, said the U.S. government has a vested interest in bringing the men back to safety. The FBI is investigating how and why about 20 men left the Twin Cities to join the chaos and bloodshed of a homeland they barely knew.

Ellison said the U.S. should send a message to the young fighters.
"If you've learned the truth about these exploitative organizations like Shabaab, who are so dangerous, then abandon them and then help tell the truth about what these groups are really all about," Ellison said.

The Minneapolis office of the FBI has encouraged any of the Minnesota fighters who have had second thoughts to find their way to "the nearest friendly diplomatic agency."
"If these men did come to a point where they wanted to return home, that they were disenchanted with the situation over there, tired of the fighting and wanting to come home, we'd certainly like to get the word out that they should do that," said FBI spokesman E.K. Wilson.
But Wilson also added that the FBI remains focused on the investigation, "and that focus has not changed at all."
