John Conyers an Islamist tool?

Politics: Investor's Business Daily slams Conyers noted by Editor and Publisher.

The conservative business publication, Investor's Business Daily, isn't taking this week's elections results in stride. In a blistering editorial, the newspaper charges that Rep. John Conyers, soon to chair the House Judiciary Committee, is "leading a Democrat jihad to deny law enforcement key terror-fighting tools" and "is in the pocket of Islamists." Proof for this? Conyers, whose district in Michigan holds a large Arab-Amercian population, has a version of his Web site in Arabic and allegedly "does the bidding of these new constituents and the militant Islamist activists who feed off them." More "evidence": Conyers opposes the Patriot Act and has called for the president's impeachment. In addition he "is one of the top recipients of donations from the Arab-American Leadership PAC. And not surprisingly, he has a long history of pandering to Arab and Muslim voters....Today, Hamas, Hezbollah and the al-Qaida-tied Muslim Brotherhood are all active in the area..... "Expect Conyers and Pelosi to kick open the doors of Congress to Islamists from the Council on American-Islamic Relations and other militant groups. They will have unfettered access, even though many of their leaders have been tied to terrorism (some CAIR officials have landed in the big house)... "Conyers led the defense of Bill Clinton in last decade's impeachment hearings and is clearly out for blood. So are many of the constituents he serves."
Dearborn didn't do itself any favors with pro-Hezbollah marches during the summer and Conyers didn't sign a resolution supporting Israel during its month long war. So I wouldn't call him the black Ken Livingston just yet. But keep an eye on him and his reasons for doing anything.
