Nancy Pelosi to name first Muslim lawmaker to House intelligence committee
By LAUREN FRENCH 1/13/15 10:32 AM EST Updated 1/13/15 4:12 PM EST
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced in a closed-door meeting Tuesday she would name the first Muslim lawmaker to the House’s Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
A senior Democratic aide said Rep. André Carson of Indiana would be named in the “coming days” to the key national security-focused panel. Pelosi (D-Calif.) told lawmakers of the appointment during the members’ weekly caucus meeting.

Carson would be the first Muslim to serve on the committee and was the second Muslim to be elected to Congress. He already serves on the Armed Services Committee and worked for the Department of Homeland Security’s Fusion Center — the clearinghouse established by the federal government to streamline data sharing between the CIA, FBI, Department of Justice and the military.
The intelligence committee will most likely tackle a series of high-profile international crises during the 114th Congress, including the threat of Islamic militants and Ukraine.
Carson’s office didn’t immediately return a request for comment.
The announcement comes in the wake of last week’s terrorist attack by Islamic extremists and subsequent shootouts with police that left 17 people dead. World leaders gathered on Sunday for a 1 million person “solidarity” protest against the violence that targeted French Jews and journalists.
BREAKING: Muslim U.S. Congressman Busted Working With Terrorist Frontman
Monday, December 29th, 2014
One of the two sitting U.S. Congressmen who happen to also be Muslim was caught working together with a known frontman and fundraiser for terrorist groups.
Indiana Representative Andre Carson (D) took part in a major Islamic convention in Chicago this weekend. The convention was hosted and sponsored by the Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America.
Carson was a featured guest on a panel discussing the events in Ferguson and beyond. He was joined on that panel by a man named Mazen Mokhtar, who is known for operating an Al Qaeda website and fundraising for the Taliban.
It is presumed that Carson knew who Mokhtar is, and it is certain that the FBI knows who Mokhtar is, as he was named in a 2004 federal investigation of a UK-based Al Qaeda website that raised money for the Taliban, among other terrorist organizations. Mokhtar stands accused of operating a US-based mirror website of the one in the UK, according to PJ Media.
As per the Washington Post: “Mazen Mokhtar, an Egyptian-born imam and political activist, operated a Web [sic] site identified in an affidavit unsealed Friday by the U.S. attorney’s office in Connecticut. The Web site solicited funds for the Taliban and Chechen mujaheddin, according to the affidavit. It is an exact replica of Web [sic] sites operated by Babar Ahmad, who was arrested in England on a U.S. extradition warrant this week.”
