An official at the anti-Israel American Muslims for Palestine group who openly advocates for violence against the Jewish state contributed $2,500 to Democratic Party leader Rep. Keith Ellison (Minn.) last year, according to campaign disclosure documents.
The contribution from Taher Herzallah, AMP’s associate director of outreach and grassroots organizing, came in March 2017 shortly after Ellison was named the Democratic National Committee’s deputy chairman.
Herzallah is best known as one of the “Irvine 11,” a group of students who were sentenced to three years probation for actions taken to disrupt a 2010 speech by then-Israeli ambassador Michael Oren. He more recently—just a few weeks before his contribution to Ellison—was arrested for disrupting confirmation hearings for U.S. ambassador to Israel David Friedman.
Herzallah has in recent years openly advocated for using violence to destroy Israel, saying in 2014 that “the State of Israel is a lie” and “Israelis have to be bombed.”

This is why the democRAT Party is not going anywhere except where they are now. They are run by anti American pro antifa, pro BLM, pro violence and pro illegals and pro illegal criminals. They are clueless on how to fix anything, they backed Obama who could not even sit down with his fellow democRATS. Their platform is more taxes, more regulations and they need the illegals for there votes and they take away tax dollars that should be going to Veterans and give them to illegal crooks.
I’d ask what’s wrong with the constituents that put Keith Ellison in Congress. But we all know the answer to that. What we should do is learn from what’s happened in that Minnesota district and make absolutely certain that it never happens elsewhere.
