When I saw the story yesterday I realized I know this guy!
I wrote about him over a year ago being arrested with CAIR’s Nihad Awad and Linda Sarsour at a Capitol Hill demonstration sponsored by our old pals at the refugee contractor Church World Service (which I happened to write about yesterday before I saw the hubbub about Omar Suleiman!).
Below is the news at the Daily Caller about the blow back the Dems are getting for inviting Suleiman to pray in the people’s house.
But, first you really need to go back to my March 2018 post featuring Suleiman and his pals entitled,
Linda Sarsour, CAIR’s top gun Nihad Awad, and Imam Suleiman among those arrested on Capitol Hill this week
Here is the Daily Caller story from Friday. Their focus is on his antisemitism, but really this Imam is a hardcore Islamic supremacist and Leftwing political agitator.
Militantly Anti-Semitic Imam Gives Opening Prayer At House Of Representatives
A Muslim cleric who called for violence against Israel and expressed support for Hamas gave the opening prayer before the House of Representatives Thursday, angering several representatives.
Omar Suleiman, an imam and president of the Yaqeen Institute, delivered the invocation at the invitation of his congresswoman, Democratic Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson of Texas, according to the Jewish Telegraph Agency. Republican New York Rep. Lee Zeldin, who is Jewish, decried the invitation in light of the fact that Suleiman has repeatedly called for a third Intifada against Israel, referred to Jews as “Zionists” and called them “enemies of God,” and defended the terrorist organization Hamas on social media.
Suleiman prayed for peace and unity in light of the recent attacks against houses of worship, which include Islamic terrorist attacks that killed hundreds in Sri Lankan churches and an attack on a California synagogue that left one dead and several wounded. He delivered his prayer ahead of the first Friday of Ramadan prayers.
Again, it was only a little over a year ago he was being arrested in the halls of Congress and now he speaks with Nancy (head bowed) behind him!
