Rep. Keith Ellison Issues Fatwa on Cigar Smoke

By John Lillpop

Satire by John W. Lillpop

Democrat Keith Ellison, the only Muslim elected to the U.S. Congress, has decided to tackle issues that other politicians normally shy away from.

Rather than concerning himself with illegal immigration, global warming, the war on terror, trade deficits, the federal debt, and troop surge in Iraq, the Minnesota Democrat has issued a Fatwa on cigar smoke.

More specifically, cigar smoke emanating from the office of Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.).


As it turns out, Tancredo is allowed to smoke in his office according to the property management firm responsible for the building.

In this case, Tancredo's office is within 95 feet of Ellison's office, which has been designated as a stoning sanctuary.

Because of Sharia law, Tancredo is guilty of a sin against Allah every time the Representative lights up.
Allah willing or not!

John Lillpop is a recovering liberal, "clean and sober" since 1992 when last he voted for a Democrat. Pray for John: He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where people like Nancy Pelosi are considered reasonable!
