First Muslim in US Congress

My belated congratulations to Keith Ellison,
the first Muslim ever elected to the American
Congress, in Ellison's case to the House of
Representatives as a Democrat for the 5th
Congressional District in Minnesota, gaining
56% of the votes. Whilst a practising Muslim,
he would describe himself as a moderate.
He still took his oath of office using a Quran
and not the Bible, much to the disgust of
several lawmakers. But why should a Muslim
use the Bible for events like that - it would be
totally meaningless.
America, as so many other countries, has still
not really accepted that Islam exists - but it
does and is by all accounts the fastest growing
faith on the planet, so do yourselves a favour
and get used to it now, learn something about
it, and read the Quran with an open mind,
at least once, for one thing is certain:
Islam is here to stay!
And may Keith Ellison be the first of many!

Update 23.01.07:
A fellow Muslim, CrusaderWatcher, has
commented and having now read Ellison's
initial statements on Israel-Palestine I must
say I am deeply disappointed, and it again
proves the total Zionist stranglehold on
American politics. Wake up America.
