“Israel-bashing Imam” delivers Ramadan opening prayer at House of Representatives

“Israel-bashing Imam” delivers Ramadan opening prayer at House of Representatives

“Democrats invited anti-Israel Imam Omar Suleiman to deliver the invocation at the opening of the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday.” It is an understatement to say that Suleiman is merely anti-Israel. He’s hateful and promotes jihad against Israel.  During one of the many Gaza wars, this one in 2014, Suleiman stated:

How befitting that the 3rd Intifada starts on the 27th night of Ramadan.…“God willing on this blessed night as the 3rd Intifada begins, the beginning of the end of Zionism is here. May Allah help us overcome this monster, protect the innocent of the world, and accept the murdered as martyrs. ameen.”

He also addressed a rally protesting the US Embassy move to Jerusalem and declared:

“Your recognition means nothing to us……Your maps mean nothing to us, your embassy is as illegitimate as the occupation it seeks to legitimize. Our land is our land, our dignity is our dignity.

The Democrat party is also plagued with congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. Omar referenced Israel as an “apartheid regime“, was a keynote speaker at a CAIR fundraiser in late March to discuss “advancing justice and empowering Muslims” and has also stated: “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.” And at the beginning of Rashida Tlaib’s term, Tlaib accused US senators who backed a bill to combat BDS of holding dual loyalties. After J Street endorsed her candidacy on the basis of two-state support, she openly proclaimed supporting a one-state solution, and she has a map in her office where Israel has been replaced with a post-it note labeled “Palestine.” The Daily caller reported that her political funding has come from groups like Hamas-linked CAIR; while Tlaib“invited a pro-Hezbollah, anti-Israel activist to her swearing-in ceremony.”

In additional bad news about the Dem camp: in mid March, a federal grand jury in New Mexico“indicted five Muslims who allegedly trained children to carry out school massacres on terrorism-related offenses, conspiracy to commit murder and kidnapping.” The children also lived under abusive conditions. The leader of the group is Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, “the son of Imam Siraj Wahhaj, who was a former CAIR board member and “is on record urging a violent overthrow of the ‘filthy’ U.S. government”, so we know where his son learned about jihad.  Despite his hatred of America and his associations to Hamas-linked CAIR, Imam Wahhaj gave an opening prayer at an event at the Democratic National Convention in 2012.

To say that the Democrats have an anti-semitism problem  is watering it down. The Democrats have more specifically, an Islamic anti-semitism problem, one that is ‘tolerated’ by fellow Dems. Islamic anti-semitism is ingrained in Islamic doctrine and has driven the daily violence by Palestinian jihadists against innocent Israelis, and also drives the ongoing efforts to obliterate the Jewish state of Israel, while lying to the world about seeking “peace”.  Palestinians aim to obliterate “from the River to the Sea”.  The level of this hatred was apparent in the alliance between the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem who worked with Hitler to murder Jews during the Holocaust.

“ISRAEL-BASHING IMAM DELIVERS OPENING PRAYER AT HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES”, by Ilanit Chernick, Jerusalem Post, May 10, 2019:

Popular American Imam Omar Suleiman, known for his Israel-bashing antics, gave the Ramadan invocation at the opening of Thursday’s House of Representatives session.

Suleiman is the founder and president of the Irving, Texas-based Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research. He was invited to give Thursday’s invocation by US Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas), a Yaqeen Institute statement said.

“We pray for peace, not war,” he said. “Love not hate. Benevolence, not greed. Unity, not division. And we commit ourselves to not betraying our prayers with actions that contradict them. Let us be for truth, no matter who, or for is against it.”
Suleiman has made several vehemently anti-Israel comments and also seemed to side with Hamas in an August 2014 Facebook post.

As the 2014 Gaza War broke out, Suleiman said on social media: “How befitting that the 3rd Intifada starts on the 27th night of Ramadan as worshippers are denied prayer in Masjid Al Aqsa.” He ended his post with a prayer of sorts: “God willing on this blessed night as the 3rd Intifada begins, the beginning of the end of Zionism is here. May Allah help us overcome this monster, protect the innocent of the world, and accept the murdered as martyrs. ameen.”

During the war, Suleiman also denied that Hamas uses human shields in an attempt to stop the IDF from retaliating against rocket fire sent from Gaza into Israeli civilian communities.

“If Hamas was using human shields, wouldn’t the Palestinians say something about it?” he wrote. “Surprise, surprise: apparently the IDF was guilty even as they tried to convince the world that the reason why they couldn’t stop massacring civilians was because of the use of human shields. This is disgusting… #FreePalestine #ICC4Israel”

Also in 2014, Suleiman also made a comment on social media alluding to the antisemitic idea that Israel controls American foreign policy, claiming that it is the “51st state….
