Rep. Lee Zeldin says Pelosi showed 'bad judgment' allowing anti-Israel imam to deliver House prayer
Fox News ^ | May 12 2019 | Samuel Chamberlain

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.

There’s an elected R in NY??

:)

I live here and I’m stunned

Even the Staten Island/part of brooklyn house seat turned D this last time out!!!

Too many Russians and asians and albanian ####s who vote heavily D have been pouring in.

The Irish out here tend to vote D.

There weren’t enough Italians to cover the deficit this time around.

And believe, not ALL Italians here vote R. But 80 percent, I’d say

Pelosi throwing red meat to her anti-Israel extremists, trying to make antisemitism mainstream in America, just as it is accepted doctrine within the DemonRat leadership.

Yes. Zeldin represents the east side of Long Island within Suffolk County. Lee’s a relatively young family man, an Iraqi vet — a good guy.

Both Suffolk and Staten Island voted for Trump. Well... a vast majority of NY counties voted for Trump.

The problem is the Christian-hating socialist scumbags in the urban areas. And they’re mostly lily-white #ing crackers.

“Pelosi showed 'bad judgment' allowing anti-Israel imam to deliver House prayer”

I'd like to believe that the third in line to the presidency is capable of good judgement, but I know that's a stretch.

The “prayer” should be translated and distributed for all to read.

Pelosi is herding cats and the Muslims now control a few litters. She didn't let the Imam deliver the prayer as a matter of judgment.

She did it to appease her herd.

Once again I ask American Jews “why in the name of all that’s holy do you support Democrats?”

Nothing the rats do is due to “bad judgement”, or “by mistake”.
Every move they make is calculated, discussed, and focus group approved, before they do it. Bet on it.

The democrat party supports what the muslims did on 9/11
They support the haters of Jewish people as members of congress and now bring in a muslim imam.

Don’t radical Muslims support the thought ‘anywhere we pray becomes our turf’? Like trying to build a mosque on an area of ground affected by 9/11?
