Minnesota AG Keith Ellison Aided ISIS-Tied Mosque To Intimidate & De-Platform Citizen Journalist
An explosive and damning document exclusively obtained by Illoominate Media confirms that Keith Ellison, the first Muslim Attorney General who serves in Minnesota, is using his position as an elected official to enforce Islamic blasphemy laws against Conservatives who post content critical of ISIS tied mosques.
On March 25, 2019, Ellison’s office penned a correspondence in reply to a Left-wing activist in Minnesota by the name of Karen Wills, in response to her complaint to Ellison’s office about an investigative report produced by an independent media company in Minnesota called “Third Rail Talk”.
Willis claimed to be a concerned member of “Neighbors Together In Solidarity”, a Left-leaning organization that has a history of working with Islamic organizations to support Islamic agendas. A review of her social media reveals Willis is a coordinator for the Democrat Party.
“You indicate that a video recently posted to YouTube contained content and comments that residents and DFC (Dar Al Faroorq Islamic Center) congregants find threatening. The video includes footage of congregants as they enter and leave the Mosque for Friday prayers. You indicate that your organization is attempting to mobilize neighbors, local clergy, and city officials to condemn hate speech,” the letter from Ellison’s office said.
Let’s take a look at the video in question that Willis, and now Ellison’s office is referring to as “hate speech”.
The video, titled “The Mosque Diaries Episode One: Are We Allowed To Film”? was posted on Third Rail Talk’s YouTube channel on March 22, 2019. The letter from Ellison’s office is dated March 25, 2019, which means Ellison’s office expedited their response in condemnation of the investigative report on the mosque, since March 23 and 24 were on a Saturday and Sunday when the Attorney General’s office is closed.
The nearly eight-minute-long video explains and proves how the Dar Al Farooq Islamic Center is in violation of Bloomington, Minnesota’s city code, and the video provides multiple forms of evidence with clearly shows that the Mosque is overfilling their parking lots, creating spillage onto other people’s property, which is a violation of city code.
There is not a single threat or hateful comment made in the video. In fact, all footage was filmed on public property, making it completely legal. Not to mention, this is America where the United States Constitution grants Americans the First Amendment. Thus, it is not illegal for anyone, especially an independent journalist, to film in a public space.
However, despite the fact that everything in the video is completely legal, Ellison’s office praised the Left-wing organization for making a false report about Third Rail Talk, and encouraged them to contact the local police and FBI to report the conservative journalist for…doing journalism…in America.
“It is important that local officials and law enforcement are aware of your concerns. I encourage you or DCF leadership to continue reporting further concerns to the Bloomington Police Department and FBI,” the letter continues.
Along with being a six-term lawmaker who represented Minnesota’s 5th District, Keith Ellison is the first Muslim to ever be elected to the U.S. Congress, and served as the Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee from 2017-2018. When he was sworn into office, Ellison refused to be sworn in with a Constitution, and instead demanded that a Quran be used as a way to emphasize “religious tolerance”.
Why is this important?
By taking his oath on the Quran, Ellison took his oath to Sharia Law as opposed to US Law as outlined in the US Constitution.
All Muslims are required to adhere to the teachings of Mohammed, and all Muslims are thus required to uphold Sharia.
Under Sharia Law, there are punishments for those who challenge or criticize Islam. In fact, criticizing Islam is punishable by death.
As Attorney General, Keith Ellison is the leading law enforcement official in the state of Minnesota, which means police officers take orders from him and his office.
By encouraging Left-wing activists and members of an ISIS tied mosque to report conservative journalists to the police and FBI, Ellison is effectively upholding Islamic blasphemy laws and is violating the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Through his Islamic faith, Ellison is tied to the mosque in a personal manner which influenced his office enough to send an expedited reply.
Ellison is friends Imam Waleed Idris al-Meneesey, who is the head of the Dar Al Farooq Islamic Center. Al-Meneesey has not only called for the killing of Jews, but he has also been cited saying Muslims should refrain from participating in non-Islamic courts that do not follow Islamic shariah law, particularly those in the West guided by “man-made” law.
In 2008, the Assembly of Muslim Jurists Association of America (AMJA), where al-Meneese sits on the fatwa committee issued a declaration telling Muslims not to cooperate with law enforcement “in countries which do not rule by Allah’s dictates”, including the FBI. The declaration invoked many of the same arguments mentioned in a 2007 paper published by al-Meneese’s.
Al-Meneese has publicly mobilized Muslims to vote for both Keith Ellison and Ilhan Omar.
Dar Al Farooq Islamic center, which the video report was conducted on, is an ISIS hotbed.
A recent report based on FBI statistics revealed that Minneapolis’s Somali community has become the terrorist recruitment capital of the United States.
“FBI stats show 45 Somalis left to join the ranks of either the Somalia-based Islamic insurgency al-Shabab, or the Iraq- and Syria-based ISIS combined. And as of 2018, a dozen more had been arrested with the intention of leaving to support ISIS. Both numbers are far higher than those of alleged terrorist wannabes who left or attempted to leave the country from other areas in the country where Muslim refugees have been resettled.”
“For over a decade, Islamist terror groups have been able to recruit from Minnesota. This is, in part, because Minnesota has a large Muslim population compared to other parts of the U.S,” said Robin Simcox, a terrorism and national security expert at The Heritage Foundation.
Keith Ellison has often attributed his 2006 campaign win to the Somali community, but he has never once condemned Dar Al Farooq for producing so many ISIS terrorists.
Ellison also endorsed Ilhan Omar, who defended nine Somali men arrested in 2015 for trying to cross into Mexico, as part of a plan to join ISIS in Syria. When the case went to trial, Omar wrote a letter to the trial judge requesting “compassion” – and lighter sentencing on behalf of the men who tried to join ISIS for the purpose of killing Americans.
When Attorney General’s are sworn in, they must take an oath to uphold the law without abusing their power to do favors for friends or those who share the same ideology.
In the letter to Willis, which is printed on Ellison’s letter head, his staff made it clear that his office is fully in favor social media and tech companies censoring voices he doesn’t agree with, specifically anything that Muslims might find offensive. This phenomenon, in which people, especially journalists on social media are being banned for reporting facts about Islam, Islamic terrorism, and Muslim politicians which actual terrorist organizations are allowed too freely use social media is called “Silicon Valley Sharia”.
The letter from Ellison continues,
“Second, as you know, YouTube’s internal policies promise to remove content promoting violence or hatred against individuals or groups based on their religion. YouTube relies on community members to report inappropriate content. As you note in your letter, community members can report content that they believe violates YouTube’s policies by select the “Report” option under the “More” tab on the video’s page. I commend you and other members of your organization for your efforts to report concerning or hateful comments to YouTube. I encourage you and others to directly contact the Chief Executive Office of YouTube, who is ultimately responsible for establishing and implementing YouTube’s policies.Her contact information is as follows:
Ms. Susan Wojcicki
Chief Executive Officer, YouTube
901 Cherry Avenue
San Bruno, CA 94066
Email: [email protected]
Who gets to decide what is hateful? Ellison and his Muslim friends at Dar Al Farooq?
Susan Wojcicki is the CEO of YouTube. The fact that Ellison is providing a direct email and number for her to the radical Leftists and Muslims in Minnesota who want to get a peaceful independent journalist banned suggests that Wojcicki and Ellison have a personal relationship, and that Ellison is weaponizing the Attorney General’s office to enforce Silicon Valley Sharia and political discrimination. Third Rail Talk is a conservative publication that was founded by a Christian pastor named George Petroff. Ellison is a Muslim Democrat.
It is truly unfathomable that an Attorney General who has direct ties to radical imams and ISIS tied mosques is encouraging a Christian journalist to be reported to the FBI over a fact based report. Ellison has never called for Dar Al Farooq to be reported to the FBI for producing dozens of ISIS terrorists. Instead, Ellison posed for selfies with the Islamic center’s Imam!
If that’s the standard, then Minnesota has a serious problem, because Ellison himself is surrounded by a variety of hateful individuals, several of them who also have ties to Islamic terrorism. The imam in charge of Dar Al Farooq has a history of calling for the killing of Jews and Christians, and has refused to explain why multiple men who attend his mosque have joined ISIS.
In what world is it appropriate for an Attorney General to give a local political organization instructions on how they can get a Conservative journalist shut down and banned on YouTube for exposing a terror tied mosque?
Along with the contact information for the CEO of YouTube, Ellison’s office also mentioned how the activist could write to Minnesotas Democrat Senators with the aim of “changing laws”.
In other words, Ellison’s office is encouraging Left-wing activists to push for changes to the First Amendment of the US which grants all Americans free speech.
Why is a Muslim Attorney General advocating for changes to America’s speech laws?
He probably never intended for this letter to become public, but now it is, and Ellison has a lot of questions to answer
This behavior on behalf of Ellison and his office in defense of an Islamic center that has produced multiple ISIS terrorists should alarm all Americans.
Ellison is quick to accuse others of “hate speech”, but during his campaign for Attorney General, Ellison, who claims to be an anti-discrimination and anti-hateful content advocate, failed to explain his support of individuals who spew hatred, bigotry, and anti-Semitism. Ellison claims to fight for the most vulnerable, but he is close friends with Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam and proponent of anti-Jewish conspiracies.
In 2013, Farrakhan attended a dinner with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in New York City to discuss the Iran deal. According to Iran’s Rouhani, Israel is “illegitimate” and doesn’t have a right to exist. Also in attendance at the dinner was Farrakhan, who along with Rouhani, has spewed hatred against Jewish people. Farrakhan himself once declared that “Hitler was a very great man”, and he has been labeled as the “leading anti-Semite in America” by the Anti Defamation League (ADL) beating notorious white supremacist David Duke to the title.
Not only did Ellison dine with Farrakhan, but he also posed for several pictures with the renowned anti-Semite, who he claimed he has no personal association with. Upon further investigation, it is evident that Ellison does in fact have a personal connection and fond admiration for Farrakhan. In 1995 while he was a law student at the University of Minnesota, Ellison helped organize buses from the Twin Cities for Farrakhan’s “Million Man March”.
With regards to his ties to other anti-Jewish and radical Islamic individuals who use their platforms to spew anti-American hatred, Ellison is also close friends with Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour. One month before Linda Sarsour called for Jihad (Islamic terrorism) to be carried out against President Trump, Ellison tweeted, “Silencing Linda Sarsour is wrong”. However, he was completely silent on the issue of whether or not it was wrong for Sarsour to call for Islamic terror to be carried out in the United States in an effort to defeat President Trump in June of 2017.

It is also worth noting that Sarsour, who once reportedly posed for a picture next to a Swastika, tweeted there is “nothing creepier than Zionism,” and has openly declared her support for implementing Sharia law in the United States, officially endorsed Ellison for DNC Chair. Most recently, Sarsour said Jewish people “should not be humanized”.

Ellison’s Islamic faith is essential to understanding why he is using his position as Minnesota’s Attorney General to enforce Islamic blasphemy laws.
“I was driving on the highway in one of the major arteries in Detroit called Davidson and saw a sign that said ‘Muslim Center.’ I met the guys at the Davidson Muslim Center and they welcomed me in. After going there for a month, I took the Shahada, which is the first pillar of Islam, ‘There is no god but God, and Mohammed is his messenger,” Ellison told the Iran Times.
Attorney Generals are elected to uphold and enforce laws of the land. However, the letter sent on Ellison’s official letterhead further reveals the dilemma that arises when devout Muslims seek political office in America, and begs the question…why is the CEO of YouTube working with Ellison, who clearly has a history of being tied to actual hateful individuals, to police “hate speech” online?
YouTube is full of videos from Islamic terrorist organizations and ANTIFA. ANTIFA has been classified by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as a Left wing domestic terrorist organization. There are countless instances, many of which have been caught on camera, of ANTIFA members violently assaulting Trump supporters and journalists in public. In 2017, it was also revealed that the FBI has been investigating members of ANTIFA who they say have been traveling to the Middle East to train with ISIS in an effort to plan for the destruction of President Trump.
Despite being classified as a terrorist organization, Ellison once tweeted a picture of himself posing with the official ANTIFA handbook, saying, “At @MoonPalaceBooksand I just found the book that strike fear in the heart of @realDonaldTrump.”
“Free speech in Minnesota is being suppressed, and the authorities are using their positions of power to side with mosques that have known jihadi connections, while intimidating citizen journalists who report on their activities. I believe my Facebook ban was coordinated and I think we are being watched by Keith Ellison who is clearly upholding Silicon Valley Sharia,” said George Petroff, founder of Third Rail Talk.
The evidence is overwhelming. One thing is certain, and that is the fact that Keith Ellison is a danger to society. Evidence shows he is a supporter of Jihad, an enabler and supporter of anti-Semites such as Louis Farrakhan, Linda Sarsour, and Ilhan Omar, and now he is abusing his position as the first Muslim Attorney General to assist Left-wing radicals in targeting Conservative journalists who are reporting on Dar Al Faroorq Islamic Center, which is an ISIS tied mosque. If Ellison would have taken his oath on the US Constitution, he would know that he has a duty to uphold US law, which includes the First Amendment. Instead, Ellison took his oath on the Quran, which explains why he is instead working to enforce Silicon Valley Sharia by providing Leftists with tools to report the peaceful speech of those who oppose Islamic terror.
Ellison’s office was contacted with a request for comment, but they refused to comment.
