With 'Moderate' Muslims Like This, Who Needs Terrorists?

Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, has wedged his foot firmly in his mouth, and started to chew:
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".
Perhaps this ignorant, posturing jackass wouldn't have played the Nazi card if he were aware of the actions of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem during WWII; the Muslim leader who raised a division of Arab SS troops for Hitler.
