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.
Collusion with Jihadi Omar.
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 f*cked up. End of story.
They are YOUNG PUNK HIPSTER CRACKAS MAKING A LOT OF MONEY AND NOT SHARING ANY but acting like they give a #### about the less fortunate and they have their nonsense environment and transgender agenda to push.
now i’m mad lol
The same bad judgment pelousy exhibited by seating and then putting a brand new iubquwlified Islamic nazi on the foreign relations committee? Gee, prlousy is sure displaying a lot of bad judgment that just so happens to promote killing the Jews
The “prayer” should be translated and distributed for all to read.
I might be sensing a trend.
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?”
Islam money owns the Democrat party.
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.
Dont 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?
<>Islam money owns the Democrat party.<>
And too many pubbies want in on the action.
