Dr. Syed Taj, an Indian-born Michigan Muslim Candidate for Congress accepts Hamas-linked CAIR support and funding, and is embraced by radical Muslims.
An Indian-born Michigan Muslim Democrat running for U.S. Congress with ties to radical Islam has accepted a campaign contribution from CAIR PAC (Council on American Islamic Relations), an unindicted co-conspirator in the nation’s largest-ever terror-financing trial.
Even though Michigan’s 11th District, which he hopes to represent, is predominately non-Muslim, Dr. Syed Sabahuddin Taj told the Arab American News that representing Muslims was a top reason he is running for Congress.
“I looked around at the congress (sic) and realized there really is no representation for us, number one as minorities, and number two as Muslims. Those were two reasons for me to come out,” Dr. Taj said. He has been supported by both Muslim members of Congress, Keith Ellison of Minnesota, and Andre Carson of Indiana.
In the same article Dr. Taj said he opposes anti-Sharia legislation that has been introduced in Michigan and around the country, and opposes provisions of the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which was signed by President Obama. He also opposed an initiative by the Michigan secretary of state requiring a citizen checkbox on voting ballots.
The 11th District includes northwest suburbs of Detroit in Wayne and Oakland counties and is an amalgam of working-class neighborhoods and affluent professional communities. Oakland County includes the nation’s largest concentration of Chaldeans, who fled war and Muslim oppression in Iraq. It is also home to the state’s largest concentration of Jews.
The district was formerly represented by Thaddeus McCotter, who resigned his post, thus the seat is now vacant. Dr. Taj is running against Republican businessman, teacher and veteran of the Vietnam and Iraqi wars, Kerry Bentivolio.
