The campaign flyer for Texas Tea Party candidate is controversial to say the least.“Stop the Islamization of America?” Does not play well with some people.But, it’s one of the campaign promises which Texas Tea Party candidate Itamar Gelbman is using to run on, in a decision that is inspiring to the ears of some voters, but earning the admiration of others.
Gelbman, is campaigning against Rep. Joe Bartin in Texas’ 6th District, he does not have exactly the biography you’d expect from any candidate. He says he’s an “Army Lieutenant” running for Congress. What he does not mention is that it's not the United States Army, it’s the Israeli Army. Though Gelbman is an American citizen and he was born in New York, and has no problem showing his birth certificate , he grew up in Israel, and served in the Israeli Defense Force,and making it to the rank of Lieutenant in Israel’s Special Forces. According to his campaign bio, he moved back to the United States to work in Security Consulting, and is now running for Congress.
One Voter had this to say.....
“I would like to ask him how he plans to stop the ‘Islamization of America?’” asked Jamal Qaddura. “Where is the ‘Islamization of America?’”
Qaddura received one of Gelbman’s campaign cards because he votes Republican in the 6th District. In fact, Qaddura is a precinct chair in the Tarrant County GOP and a frequent spokesman for the Islamic community.
He’s more than a little offended by the Gelbman campaign.
Although Gelbman claims to have a 100% positive feed back he has made some Enemies. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Given CAIR’s previous record for defending even Muslims who arguably shouldn’t be defended, you could almost call this the same as putting a political contract on Gelbman’s head.
