Washington Post: Rep. Keith Ellison weeps at hearing on Muslim American communities

Congressman Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) broke down during his remarks at Congressman King’s (R-N.Y.) hearings on radicalization in the American Muslim community.

Ellison was talking about Mohammad Salman Hamdani, the American Muslim firefighter who died on 9/11. Because Hamdani, Ellison said, was a Muslim, he was the subject of conspiracy theories for months after his death. A NYTimes editorial later clarified: “Mr. Hamdani’s remains had been found near the north tower, and he had gone there to help people he did not know.”
