On Saturday, 300 American Jewish leaders including 100 rabbis signed a letter saying that Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison, 53, is not an anti-Semite – meaning he doesn’t criticize Israel or Zionism or Holocaust.
The letter was issued ahead of the DNC-sponsored regional candidate forum in Phoenix on Saturday. The letter states that it is not an endorsement of Ellison for DNC chair, but rather a call to reject the unfair and baseless accusations some have leveled at him.
“We share our deep alarm at the unfounded and dishonest accusations of anti-Semitism directed at Congressman Keith Ellison. As Jewish professionals, lay leaders and activists, we know that Keith forcefully rejects anti-Semitism and other forms of hate or discrimination. His commitment to inclusion and fairness are values that define the foundation of his public service and his vision for America,” read the letter.
“Keith Ellison is and has long been a friend of Israel, a champion of pro-peace policies, and shown deep respect for Jewish values and the Jewish people. He has demonstrated support for Israel and its legitimacy as the democratic homeland of the Jewish people throughout his career. He has voted for more than $27 billion in bilateral aid and assistance to Israel. Ellison is a strong supporter of a two-state solution,” said the letter.
The Organized Jewry doesn’t agree with these 300 Jewish leaders. For example, on December 1, 2016, Jonathan Greenblatt, top gun at ADL said: “We have serious doubts about Rep. Keith Ellison’s ability to faithfully represent the party’s traditional support for Israel.”
Morton Klein, president Zionist Organization of America, whined on December 1, 2016: “New information reveals that an article written by Congressman Keith Ellison (D-Minn), called for an optional separate country for Black Americans; his condemning Zionism; his affiliation for 10 years and defending Jew-hating, white-hating Louis Farrakhan as a role model for Black youth; his defending other Jew haters; his defending murderers; his claim Israel was established under dubious circumstances, again makes it crystal clear that Ellison is a racist Jew hater, even a white hater and far too radical, divisive and dangerous to become Chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). ”
Murdoch’s Fox News Zionist pundit Pete Brain Hegseth called Ellison a radical Muslim.
On December 30, 2016, serial lying Zionist Jew, Alan Dershowitz, threatened that he would resign from Democrat party if Keith Ellison named DNC Chair.
Laurel Raymond wrote at the Think Progress.org: “One common thread to the complaints: Ellison’s religion. Ellison is the first Muslim ever elected to Congress, as well as the first Black congressman from Minnesota.”
On November 23, 2016, Bruce A. Dixon, editor Black Agenda Report called Keith Ellison as DNC Chair: Another High Place, Another Empty Black Face.
“Ellison is black. He’s the first Muslim elected to Congress, he’s smart enough and telegenic. He votes infallibly to support the apartheid regime in Israel, and he says if it were up to him there’d have been a no-fly zone (and possible shooting war with the Russians) a long time ago,” says Dixon.
“Hillary’s indispensable firewall was supposed to be the black vote, for which she needed to do little else than mumble about Black Lives Matter, and pose occasionally with the mothers of some of those murdered by police. Democratic shot callers seem to still believe that all they need is another empty black face in a high place. They won’t get another First Black President. It was Hillary’s turn and that didn’t work out. Now it’s Keith Ellison’s turn. He’s another empty black face in a very high place,” Dixon added.
