America’s first elected congressman Keith Ellison, who swore to uphold the US constitution on Thomas Jefferson’s Koran, has lashed Zuhdi Jasser for criticizing Islam:

Congressman Keith Ellison denounced Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, for warning that political Islam has a militant strain that’s used to justify terrorism.
Jasser told a congressional briefing that terrorism won’t be stopped until his Islamic faith goes through its own Reformation to separate mosque and state.
Ellison responded by accusing Jasser of giving people a “license for bigotry.” The Minnesota Democrat said every religion has its violent extremists, and told Jasser, “I think people who want to engage in nothing less than Muslim-hating really love you a lot, because you give them freedom to do that.”
But Jasser declared, “This is an Islamic problem and it needs an Islamic solution.”
