It strikes me as bloody savage that militant Muslims in Congress (whose trip to the hajj was on the Muslim Brotherhood's dime) are protesting for "muslims in Darfur," when in fact it is an Islamic government that has murdered millions in the cause of jihad. It's an Islamic jihad in Sudan. No one ever talks about that.

Rep. Ellison arrested during Darfur protest
By BOB VON STERNBERG, Star Tribune
U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., and four other members of Congress were arrested this morning in front of the Sudanese Embassy in Washington, D.C., as they protested the expulsion of aid groups in Darfur.
It was an apparently unprecedented act by a member of Minnesota's congressional delegation and somewhat out of character for Ellison, who has kept a generally low profile since he arrived in Congress, attracting international attention as its first Muslim member.
News archives show that no other members of the state's delegation have been arrested for civil disobedience; former Sen. Dave Durenberger was arrested on disorderly conduct charges in 1986 after he argued with a police officer and a taxi dispatcher. The charges were dismissed.
Before being led away in handcuffs during the mid-morning protest, Ellison said it's wrong to deprive aid to what he called "the most vulnerable people on our planet."
"They were speaking on the embassy steps and were asked to leave," said Ellison spokesman Rick Jauret. "When they didn't, they were arrested."
Ellison and a total of seven other protesters were taken away by U.S. Secret Service agents and are expected to be charged with trespassing, Jauert said.
Also arrested were Reps. Jim McGovern, D-Mass., John Lewis, D-Ga., Donna Edwards, D-Md., and Lynn Woolsey, D-Calif., and three Darfur activist leaders.
