While a majority of Americans are celebrating Christmas, Muslims use the time to plot their takeover. This particular group is not only terror-linked, but MAS has been designated a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates.

Minnesota congressman Keith Ellison cancelled his scheduled appearance the Muslim American Society’s annual conference, where he was slated to deliver the keynote address.
Ellison’s name and picture, which were previously featured prominently on the convention website’s homepage, have been removed completely. He was also removed from the full list of convention speakers.
Ellison was scheduled to deliver the keynote address at the convention’s “appreciation dinner” in Chicago on Tuesday.
The dinner was being billed as an opportunity for conference-goers to “Meet the Celebrity!” and get a “one-on-one encounter” with speakers at the event.
Ellison did not respond to numerous requests for comment on the decision to opt out of the event. A representative at the convention said that it could not comment on the change in schedule.
Ellison has a long-standing relationship with the Muslim American Society, which was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood to be the extremist group’s voice in the United States.
In 2008, the society paid for Ellison to travel to Saudi Arabia for a 16-day religious pilgrimage to Mecca. Ellison was also the keynote speaker for the Minnesota chapter’s annual convention in both 2007 and 2008.
Ellison faced criticism for speaking at this year’s convention not only due to the radical nature of the Muslim American Society but also because of some of the people he was set to share the stage with.
Among the featured speakers at the convention is Mohammad Ratib Al-Nabulsi, who is scheduled to speak at five different sessions over the course of the three-day conference and has garnered attention for his statements on both homosexuality and Jews.
“Homosexuality leads to the destruction of the homosexual,” Nabulsi said. “That is why, brothers, homosexuality carries the death penalty.” He went on to complain that America gives “privileges of a wife to a homosexual partner,” noting that it was “frightening.”
In a brief Nabulsi authored on “martyrdom operations in Palestine” he declared that “all the Jewish people are combatants.”
“The wicked Jews are a collection of defects and imperfections, and a hotbed of vices and evils,” he wrote. “They are the worst enemies of God, against Islam and its people.”
He complained that the “enemy” uses the term “suicide” bombers to deceive Muslims.
“Beware, the enemy calls the operations suicide, they say: suicide operation to deceive Muslims, that this is suicide, but we should call them martyrdom operations,” Nabulsi wrote. “A young man in the prime of his years sacrifices his life and shakes an entity.”
Among the other radical speakers at the convention are Abdelfattah Mourou, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood in Turkey, Siraj Wahhaj, who was named a co-conspirator to the World Trade Center bombing in 1993, and Osama Abu-Irshaid, who runs American Muslims for Palestine and has called Hamas an “army for liberation.”
Read it all and this: Ellison’s Name Disappears from Islamist Convention Program After IPT Report
On Monday, IPT reported that the MAS-ICNA conference also will feature Ali Qaradaghi, secretary general of the pro-Hamas International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS). The article also disclosed a 2010 email in which liberal Muslim scholar al-Husein Madhany described MAS as a “national security threat” due to its ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Ellison’s DNC candidacy was rocked by a Nov. 30 IPT report which included a 2010 recording in which Ellison described American foreign policy as disproportionately influenced by Jews.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) retracted its endorsement of Ellison after the IPT’s report, calling his remarks “deeply disturbing and disqualifying” and that they “his words raise the specter of age-old stereotypes about Jewish control of our government.”
