The Left is becoming more radical by the day.
On Thursday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi gave the opening congressional prayer duties to proven anti-Semite Imam Omar Suleiman.
Suleiman has compared Israel to Nazis in the past and also supports terror groups like the Muslim brotherhood and has called for attacks on Jews.
Anti-Semitic feminist Linda Sarsour praised the move.
“A beautiful, moving, and timely prayer by Imam Omar Suleiman on the House floor today at the US Capitol. Born and raised in Louisiana, currently lives and preaches in Dallas, TX,” she said in a tweet.

GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin was not happy about the decision by Pelosi.
“Totally unacceptable that
@SpeakerPelosi had Omar Suleiman give the opening prayer yesterday in the House. He compares Israel to the Nazis & calls them terrorists, supports Muslim Brotherhood, incites violence calling for a Palestinian antifada & the end of zionism, etc. Bad call,” he tweeted.

The Algemeiner reported on some of Imam Suleiman’s anti-Semitic behavior in the past:
On July, 25, 2014, Suleiman declared on Twitter and Facebook: “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.”
The Facebook post garnered 1.9K comments, more than 4,200 shares, 17K “Likes,” and was even published on a Malaysian website. Suleiman’s call for a “3rd Intifada” and his explicit effort to cast it in religious terms came in the middle of the war between Gaza’s Hamas regime and Israel. That conflict, of course, followed the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers by Hamas members in June, and the firing of rockets by Hamas into Israel.
Just three months after declaring the imminent outbreak of a “3rd Intifada,” Suleiman posted on Twitter on October 30, 2014: “For the first time since 1967, Masjid Al Aqsa is closed. A third intifada is near insha’Allah. #FreePalestine.”
The Left is becoming so obsessed with pushing their far Left Muslim agenda that they are literally turning their backs on the Jewish community by showing support for anti-Semites.
Pelosi has a history of backing Muslims with anti-Semitic messages. The speaker stayed mum after radical Democrat congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic statements.
After Omar downplayed the 9/11 terror attacks by saying “people did something,” President Trump took the opportunity to slam the radical congresswoman.
Pelosi had nothing to say about the comments from Omar, but made sure to share her “outrage” over the President’s reaction.
This is what she said:
Following the president’s tweet, I spoke with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family and her staff. They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces.
The President’s words weigh a ton, and his hateful and inflammatory rhetoric creates real danger. President Trump must take down his disrespectful and dangerous video.
Unbelievable. Republicans NEED to take back the House in 2020 to stop this radical agenda by the Left.
