Pelosi Invites Anti-Israel Imam to Pray on House Floor

New York Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin called out Nancy Pelosi this week for inviting an anti-Semitic Texas imam to deliver a call to prayer on the House floor last week. “Either the speaker’s office did not vet this imam at all, or worse, they did vet the imam and then decided that it would have been OK for the imam to come onto the floor of the House of Representatives anyway,” Representative Zeldin told “Fox & Friends.” Imam Omar Suleiman has repeatedly supported the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, going so far as to refer to the Israeli government as “Nazis.” The ironies are too numerous to count, but rest assured the Democrats aren’t winning any new Jewish votes in 2020.

Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., told “Fox & Friends” on Sunday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., had made “a bad call” by allowing a Texas imam with a history of anti-Israel comments to deliver the noon prayer in the House of Representatives last week.

“Either the speaker’s office did not vet this imam at all, or worse, they did vet the imam and then decided that it would have been OK for the imam to come onto the floor of the House of Representatives anyway,” said Zeldin. “It’s a bad call to have this person. It’s horrible judgment, and after the 2019 that we’ve had so far, where members of their own caucus are pushing anti-Semitism and anti-Israel hate, it was a bad judgment.”

The imam, Omar Suleiman of Irving, Texas, was introduced by Pelosi before he delivered the prayer from the rostrum on Thursday. He had been invited to speak by Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-Texas.
