Ellison, CAIR Lied About Jefferson's Koran

Muslim Keith Ellison, D-MN

Remember how Keith Ellison, D-MN, the first Muslim elected to Congress, claimed that taking his ceremonial oath of office on Thomas Jefferson's Koran indicated religious tolerance and a search for knowledge and wisdom on the part of the Founders?

Remember how CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, denounced Ellison's critics as bigots, pointing to the fact that Jefferson owned a copy of the Koran?

Remember how Nancy Pelosi beamed with pride as Ellison took his oath of office on the Koran, much to the delight of the New York Times, the liberal media establishment, and the Left?

As it turns out Jefferson had good reason to own a copy of the Koran. According to the records kept in the Library of Congress, the very source of Jefferson's Koran, the nation's third President was considering waging war against Muslim countries such as Morocco, Algeria, and Tripoli. Muslim pirates from these nations had pillaged, plundered, and slaughtered villages occupied by non-Muslims in the region, including invading neighboring territories for the purpose of committing acts of barbarism against any who had not converted to Islam.

Thus, Jefferson's desire to read the Koran was based solely upon his need to know the source of what led these Muslim barbarians to commit such atrocities. In short, he had to know what the enemy was thinking before waging war!
