Yesterday on the House floor, in front of Boehner and other Republicans bowing their heads, Imam Hamad Chebli from the Islamic Center of Central Jersey praised Allah as Supreme on the House floor as he gave the opening prayer:
Walid Shoebat did some research on Imam Chebli and says this Imam is no moderate Muslim:
We’re not talking about a harmless, moderate Imam here. Instead, we’re talking about a major devil. Chebli’s mentor is a man named Hassan Khalid, who was the Mufti of Lebanon who was “martyred” after a bomb was set up which killed him and other. His father went the same way.
Khalid is even featured prominently on the official Muslim Brotherhood website.
Chelbi also traveled to Egypt to study at Al-Azhar University, the world’s oldest university and center for Brotherhood jurisprudence. It was during this time that Chelbi’s mentor Khalid was chosen as the nation’s foremost Islamic legal scholar in the Sunni Muslim sect.
Prior to Khalid’s fallout with the PLO’s Yasser Arafat, he was a champion and supporter of Palestinian terrorism against Israel.
The selection of Chelbi also appears to have significance relative to the U.S. policy in Syria. Both his mentor Khalid – and Khalid’s father – were killed by the Syrian regime. As such, Chelbi has an axe to grind when it comes to Bashar al-Assad. With news that the Obama administration is actually considering a policy based on an absurd premise that the best way to defeat ISIS is to remove Assad from power, Chelbi’s appearance at locations of national significance seem to coincide with this potential shift in U.S. policy.
Despite western portrayals of Chelbi as a moderate, he absolutely is not.
Boy Republicans sure now how to pick ’em don’t they?
Either way I couldn’t have just stood in the House with my head bowed while this Imam praised Satan on the House floor. Yes, I said Satan because that’s really what we’re talking about here. And when you put it in that context it makes these Republicans look ridiculous.
