In 2006, Minnesotaâ€™s Keith Ellison became the first Muslim ever elected to the U.S. Congress. WMNFâ€™s SeÃ¡n Kinane spoke with him on Saturday, before the Council on American-Islamic Relations banquet in Tampa. The second half of the interview begins with Rep. Ellison responding to Barack Obamaâ€™s first move as president-elect. Obama chose Rahm Emanuel as chief of staff. Emanuel is strongly pro-Israel.
â€œ[I've met with Dr. Al-Arian's family] and Iâ€™ll be happy to meet with them again in the future.â€
