Congressman Goode Says Iraq Resolution Would be Boon for Muslim Extremists

Virginia Congressman Virgil Goode is speaking out again about Muslims.

The Republican says a nonbinding measure opposing President Bush's plan to boost troop strength in Iraq would, he said, "comfort and encourage the radical Muslims who want to destroy our country."

Goode told his colleagues that Islamic jihadists would want U.S. currency to say "in Muhammad we trust," with an Islamic flag flying over the White House and U.S. Capitol.

Goode angered Muslims in December when he questioned Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison's decision to take a ceremonial photograph of his swearing-in on the Koran instead of the Bible and warned that more Muslims would be elected to office unless immigration was limited.

Ellison was born in Detroit and converted to Islam in college.
