Democrats name first Muslim to Intel panel

Andre Carson, one of two Democratic Muslim congressmen, was named to the House Intelligence committee by Nancy Pelosi and some are questioning this decision. Now we’ve covered Carson a little over the years, pointing out that he voted for a resolution supporting Israel in 2009 and then later explained it had nothing to do with supporting Israel. He also called for American schools to be modeled after madrassas that are supported by the Koran.

But here’s more reporting on Carson, including his relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood from GMBDW that may leave you questioning this decision by Pelosi:

  • In June 2009, the GMBDW reported that Congressmen Carson and Keith Ellison, the second US Muslim representative, were guest speakers at a social event sponsored by the now defunct Congressional Muslim Staffers Association (CSMA), sponsored by Carson. We subsequently reported on the relationship between the US Muslim Brotherhood and the CMSA.
  • In September 2009, we reported that Congressman Carson was to be a featured speaker at the annual convention of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), a part of the US Muslim Brotherhood.
  • In May 2012, we reported that Congressman Carson was to be a guest speaker at the annual convention of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), a part of the US Muslim Brotherhood and considered to be closely tied to the Jamaat-e-Islami organization of Southeast Asia, itself allied with the Global Muslim Brotherhood
  • In November 2012, we reported that Nancy Pelosi was the main feature at a fundraising event that included the US Muslim Brotherhood organizations whose leaders sat at the same table with Pelosi. Congressman Carson was one of the sponsors of the event.
  • In January 2013, we reported that Congressman Carson was in attendance at event hosted by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) hosting the newly elected President of Somalia. The meeting that included Congressman Carson as well as US government officials, notably Rashad Hussain the US Envoy to the OIC, and a representative of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA). ISNA is also a long-standing part of the US Muslim Brotherhood.
  • In May 2014, Congressman Carson was an invited speaker for the annual convention of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) and the Muslim American Society (MAS), a part of the US Muslim Brotherhood and closely tied to the Egyptian organization.
  • In October 2014, we discussed an article an article which looked at campaign contributions to Congressman Carson by US Muslim Brotherhood organizations.

And here’s one more from PJ Media that just happened a few days ago.

We’ve known for some time that we have the Muslim Brotherhood in our government. The Obama administration may suggest the Muslim Brotherhood is a secular organization and benign or something, but they are behind the upheaval in the Middle East and will not stop until they have a new version of the Ottoman Caliphate in place.

The fact that Carson so regularly associates with this terrorist organization should bother everyone now that he is on the Intelligence panel.
