A little over one month ago, this author asked United States Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen to distance herself from an Islamic extremist she seemed warm towards and to rid herself from campaign funds she received from the extremist's radical associate. One month ago, the funds were removed and sent off to charity. It was a laudable gesture on the part of the Congresswoman, and she should be thanked for it. However, she needs to do more.
When it comes to the issues of terrorism and Islamic extremism, U.S. Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is always one of the first people to stand up, speak out and vote the right way. When it comes to individuals and organizations which threaten America and her ally Israel, Representative Ros-Lehtinen is always there to defend what's right. That is why it was so disturbing for this author to discover that the Congresswoman offered praise to someone and took money from someone else whom this author considers threats to the community.
