SHOCK#1: The first Muslim ever elected to Congress is a liberal Democrat.

SHOCK#2: He doesn't like George W. Bush.

SHOCK#3: Nation Of Islam. Major surprise there.

SHOCK#4: Thinks Bush comparable to Hitler, and implies that he may have been behind 9/11.

Here we have newly elected Muslim Congressman Khalid Sheik....oh I'm sorry....Keith Ellison addressing a group of Atheists. That's right folks, Atheists.

American Politics. It just doesn't get any better than this people.

Bush like Hitler, says first Muslim in Congress

Keith Ellison, a convert to Islam, has cultivated a moderate image since being elected last November

America's first Muslim congressman has provoked outrage by apparently comparing President George W Bush to Adolf Hitler and hinting that he might have been responsible for the September 11 attacks.

Addressing a gathering of atheists in his home state of Minnesota, Keith Ellison, a Democrat, compared the 9/11 atrocities to the destruction of the Reichstag, the German parliament, in 1933. This was probably burned down by the Nazis in order to justify Hitler's later seizure of emergency powers.

"It's almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that," Mr Ellison said. "After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader [Hitler] of that country in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted."

To applause from his audience of 300 members of Atheists for Human Rights, Mr Ellison said he would not accuse the Bush administration of planning 9/11 because "you know, that's how they put you in the nut-ball box - dismiss you".

Vice-President Dick Cheney's stance of refusing to answer some questions from Congress was "the very definition of totalitarianism, authoritarianism and dictatorship", he added.

Mr Ellison also raised eyebrows by telling his audience: "You'll always find this Muslim standing up for your right to be atheists all you want."

BLOGGER COMMENTARY:Muslims For Atheists. That's like Jews for Jesus right? Seriously though if your friends in the rest of the Muslim world (whose opinion's of President Bush are eerily similar to your own) knew that you had said this, they would bury you in sand up to your neck and throw rocks at you. Louis Farakahn is probably rolling over in his grave right now. Huh? He's not dead? Oh. Well at least me and my friends still had a really good time at that party we threw. I'm just kidding. I love you Calypso Louie. Now back to the article.

A convert to Islam who was previously linked to the extremist Nation of Islam, Mr Ellison, 42, has cultivated a moderate image since being elected last November, concentrating on issues such as health and education.

He is an outspoken critic of the war in Iraq. But he angered his own anti-war supporters by voting for a budget bill that aims to end the war over the next 18 months. His followers want an immediate withdrawal of US troops from Iraq.

After his speech was reported, Mr Ellison said he accepted that Osama bin Laden was responsible for 9/11. But his demagogic comments threaten to plunge him in controversy.

Mark Drake, of the Republican party in Minnesota, said: "To compare the democratically elected leader of the United States of America to Hitler is an absolute moral outrage which trivialises the horrors of Nazi Germany.

So does Islam make you insane once you're a member or do you have to already be insane in order to join?

Read your Koran. Muslims are encouraged to lie, break contracts, etc., if it will benefit Islam. Their goal is a Global Caliphate. Atheists fall into the category of those who will be slain. Christians and Jews will enter into Dhimmitude.
