Radical Islamist Prays in Congress

A radical Islamist imam, who had previously expressed support for various radical factions in the Middle East, opened the House of Representatives with a call to prayer for Ramadan. The Daily Caller reports:

A Muslim cleric who called for violence against Israel and expressed support for Hamas gave the opening prayer before the House of Representatives Thursday, angering several representatives.

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.

Considering that many imams have a history of NOT supporting radical movements, why was such a man not chosen instead? Is it because a significant portion of House Democrats support jihadists in their struggle?
