The Eloquence of Ellison

Rep. Ellison (D-MN):

“Whole days – even weeks – have gone by without me being asked to speak on behalf of the 1.3 billion Muslims in the world.” On Faith: Muslims Speak Out Blog

…and having heard some of his previous comments, I can understand why:

“On comparing Sept. 11 to the burning of the Reichstag building in Nazi Germany: "It's almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that. After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it and it put the leader of that country [Hitler] in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted. The fact is that I'm not saying [Sept. 11] was a [U.S.] plan, or anything like that because, you know, that's how they put you in the nut-ball box -- dismiss you." Atheists applaud Ellison's views on Cheney, Libby, 9/11

Comments:
Have you noticed the folks they have given voice to? Sheikh Fadlalallah, Sheikh Khatami (I know that Khatami is considered a moderate, but that really was a relative term). I guess given those standards, Ellison is the voice of reason.
 
It is difficult to imagine a Muslim the Post wouldn't give a platform to...you know, 'cause of diversity and free speech and ecumenical dialogue
