Turns Out Imam INVITED BY PELOSI to Deliver Opening Prayer Compared Israel to Nazis

Speaker Pelosi is coming under fire for inviting an Imam accused of antisemitism to deliver a prayer on the House floor.

WND reported that House speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has added a “bad call” to her party’s failed “Russia collusion” agenda, which effectively has hindered Congress from addressing issues of concern to citizens such as border security and trade.

She chose a virulently anti-Semitic imam from Texas, who compared Israel to Nazis, to deliver the opening prayer in the House chamber.

“Totally unacceptable” and “bad call” is how Rep. Lee Zeldin described the move:

The Muslim imam chosen by Democrats to to give the opening invocation for Congress this week has a record of anti-Israel rhetoric and pro-Palestinian activism.

Imam Omar Suleiman, 33, was invited to give the prayer by Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson of Texas after he gave the invocation last year at the Texas Democratic Convention. Based in Irving, Texas, he is the founder and president of the Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research and a professor of Islamic studies at Southern Methodist University.

The invitation came after controversy about anti-Semitic comments made by Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota that dismayed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“We pray for peace, not war. Love, not hate. Benevolence, not greed. Unity, not division. And we commit ourselves to not betraying our prayers with actions that contradict them,” Suleiman prayed on the House floor.

His anodyne message contrasted with virulent anti-Israel statements he has made, referring to Israel as an “apartheid state” and calling for a Palestinian uprising.

In a 2014 post on his verified Facebook account, Suleiman called for another “intifada”, or uprising against Israel. “For the first time since 1967, Masjid Al Aqsa is closed. A third intifada is near insha’Allah.#FreePalestine #AlAqsaUnderAttack,” Suleiman said.

Suleiman refers to Israel’s military operations as “massacres.”

“This is Palestine. Apartheid Israel, with American funding and cover, continues to terrorize with impunity. Over 50 killed and 2000 wounded by Israeli snipers while protesting an illegal occupation and an illegal embassy,” Suleiman said in a May 2018 Facebook post.
