What part of "I am in support of the Hamas movement" don't you understand? 

Gary wants to know.

"But! But! But we have pictures of him with Bush at the White House after 9/11!" Right, because if Bush doesn't take these pictures he would have been accused of wanting to create internment camps for anybody with the wrong amount of melanin, by the same people who defend Awad now. We have pictures of Clinton with Arafat (none too flattering for Bill, either), does that make him a supporter of the PLO's aims?

We knew at the time that Awad was a problem; he's done nothing to renounce his support for Hamas, and Keith Ellison continues to take money and campaign assistance from him. Why is asking Ellison if he is in support of the Hamas movement too when he takes money from its supporters an illegitimate question?
