U.S. Sen.

Nonetheless, U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., considers Mongi Dhaouadi his go-to guy on Muslim issues and has worked with him closely for the past six years. This relationship is particularly curious considering Blumenthal's strong statements of support for Israel.
Dhaouadi is a man of contradictions. On one hand, he says that Islam and terror do not mix.
