Rep. Ellison with Antifa handbookThe revelation that a prominent official with the Democratic National Committee dined with the president of Iran and anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan should be disturbing news, says a supporter of Israel. 

The Wall Street Journal has reported that DNC Deputy Chair Keith Ellison attended a New York City dinner in 2013 hosted by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani after he addressed the United Nations General Assembly. 

Also attending was National of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

"This is outrageous and nobody is investigating this," complains Laurie Cardoza-Moore, founder and president of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations.

"Congress needs to launch an investigation into his association and his involvement," Cardoza-Moore says of Ellision, 54, a Michigan native who is the first Muslim congressman to be elected to Congress. 

Obama and Farrakhan picEllison, a former Nation of Islam member, has reached out to liberal Jewish organizations in the past to claim he  distanced himself from Farrakhan and his anti-Semetic views. 

"They were and are anti-Semitic, and I should have come to that conclusion earlier than I did," Ellison wrote a Jewish group in 2006 during a tough Democratic primary. 

Farrakhan, meanwhile, has criticized Ellison's repeated attempts to downplay their relationship, such as when he ran for DNC chair in 2016. 

Farrakhan made headlines in recent weeks when a black reporter disclosed that the Congressonal Black Caucus asked him to hide a photo of Farrakhan pictured with then-U.S. Sen. Barack Obama, knowing that the photo would hurt the then-senator's presidential aspirations.

Cardoza-Moore says it's a tragedy that a U.S. congressman who swore an oath to the U.S. Constitution dined with an enemy of our country.
