Muslim member of Congress joins anti-Semitism task force

By JERUSALEM POST STAFF
The only Muslim member of Congress has joined its anti-Semitism task force.
"I am honored to join the Congressional Anti-Semitism Task Force because it embodies the ideals and principles that have guided and shaped my life," said US Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.).
Congressional task forces, which conduct informational hearings, have no legislative role. The anti-Semitism one was founded earlier this summer by Rep.
Tom Lantos (D-Calif.), the chairman of the Foreign Affairs committee of the US House of Representatives. Its co-chairmen are US Reps. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) and Ron Klein (D-Fla.).
