On behalf of Democrat Eddie Bernice Johnson, Israel-bashing Imam Omar Suleiman delivered Thursday's opening prayer at the House of Representatives. 

Per The Daily Caller:

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 has also openly supported the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel and Israeli businesses. The BDS movement has several financial and personnel ties with Palestinian terror groups.

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.


Pelosi’s office said they are looking into how and why Johnson invited Suleiman, given his anti-Semitic history.

Suleiman has also threatened women and gay people.
