Video: Muslims convert U.S. Capitol into mosque

The Congressional Muslim Staffers (CMSA) – a group we told you about numerous times now (read previous posts here) – and their leader Jihad. Well, he chose the name Jihad but it always seems to be abbreviated to ‘J.’ when the media is around.

Folks – this is the United States Capitol Building – historic and symbolic – adorned atop by the Statue of Freedom. Not only has the building become a mosque every Friday, but check out all the dhimmi’s in attendance as if they were in a Muslim country.

Muslim Staffers Have Faith in a Tolerant Hill (from the archives as the original has disappeared)

Every Friday afternoon during his lunch break, J. Saleh Williams grabs a box of white linen fabric from the Rayburn House Office Building where he works and rides the Capitol subway to the domed building’s basement.

There, in a carpeted room, he lays the linen on the floor and, along with about 70 fellow Muslims who work in the area, he prays.

“You won’t see this in France,” Williams says. “It’s an amazing testament to freedom in this country that we can hold a prayer service in the nation’s Capitol.”

The Capitol has hosted this Jummah, or Friday prayer, for 12 years. In a recent Jummah, Esam Omeish, a Northern Virginia surgeon who ran for the state Assembly’s 35th district seat last year (and came in third), serves as Khateeb, the person who delivers the sermon. He exalts Allah and speaks of a post-integration Muslim community — “We are already integrated,” he says.

“Let us move from being Muslims who happen to live in America,” he urges in a preacher’s cadence tinged with a slight Libyan accent that three decades of American life hasn’t erased. “We are Muslim-Americans … who recognize this country to be our own.”

That’s the experience of Muslims who work on the Hill, Williams says. But though he’s as American as anyone else here, he says he still occasionally suffers from a feeling of otherness — a byproduct of his deep and often stigmatized faith.

Williams, whose real name is Jihad — he abbreviates it to J. for obvious reasons, he says — grew up in Los Angeles in a Christian home.

Big tent? Actually a not-so-big tent. At last check, the group does not accept infidels. More of Jihad Saleh’s lies – reasonably accommodated by the media and politicians. Creep creep. It’s a big ummah tent that includes the Muslim Brotherhood’s North American outlets – according to Jihad’s CMSA website:


  • American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA Society) (background)
  • Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) (background)
  • Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) (background)
  • Islamic Supreme Council of America
  • Muslim Alliance of North America (MANA) (background)
  • Muslim American Society (MAS) (background)

CMSA and CAIR are partners and CAIR is listed with the Department of Homeland Security as examples of outreach partners.

The Muslim-members-only group, is officially sponsored by Muslim congressmen Keith Ellison (D-MN) and Andre Carson (D-IN).


It appears the heat got too much for Jihad Saleh and he bailed on the CMSA.

The guest speaker in the video above, Anwar Hajjaj, was president of Taibah International, an Islamic group that was designated as a terrorist entity by the Treasury Department in 2004.

Update 2: The heat got so hot after the CMSA was outed as having invited numerous terror-linked Muslims including Anwar al Awlaki to lead “prayers” in the Capitol their entire website has been flushed down Orwell’s memory hole, archives and all. Glad to have helped expose them, but they are still infiltrating operating on the Hill.

Update 3: Video can be found here, The Capitol has hosted this Jummah, or Friday prayer, for 12 years.

“We started praying together in each others’ offices,” Khan says. “Then we started praying once a month in the Veterans’ Affairs Committee room.”

As the service grew, then-Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) gave them permission to use the basement room on Fridays.

Video and article now removed from Rollcall’s website. Why?

Update 4: They’re back! Congressional Muslim Staff Association rebuilds after terror links forced hiatus

  1. Don’t the American Tax Payer’s support the United States Government? I thought maybe I am wrong but, how can you reject or eject Infidels from attending a so called spiritual gathering at a Government Building? Isn’t that Discrimination?

  2. If you live in the DC area – call the Capitol and get the rules regarding religious services on Capitol Property.

    As an infidel you try to sign up and join the group that must be open to everyone while on Capitol property. The Muslim staffers have the right to a private function but NOT on taxpayer property.

    Then you go to the Jummah prayer, always be respectful, and ask questions during the post prayer discussion.

    Be sure to take a camera and film everything- preferably a two camera team. Make sure you know your rights regarding you being asked to leave by the Islamists. Your rights on capitol property, are other religious groups allowed this accommodation, who pays for use of the room, have a press release available to explain your purpose for being there as a non-Muslim and not a congressional aide or legislature.

    Notify Law Enforcement of your presence and intent at the meeting.

    And always be respectful and polite. Shariah creep requires peaceful opposition –

    Do your homework, know your rights, and use our laws to your advantage – while we still can. Contact Groups like ACT! For America and the SIOA (Spencer&Geller).

    America Akbar

  3. What happened to the “separation of church and state”? Of course this is ALWAYS misinterpreted, but why is jihad getting preferential treatment to hold this assembly on taxpayer’s property? Could it be because Islam is not a religion? OK, then, that makes sense.
    Stupid me!

  4. Who would you contact at the Capital? Someone should contact the ACT Organization in the DC area and have them attend! Given the tables were reversed Cair would be banging the door down at the Capital demanding answer’s of why Christians would be having prayer and slapping lawsuits all over.

    • if you feel strongly – contact your representatives in DC and at home directly…see link on left sidebar

      it’s time to stop relying on others to do what we as individual citizens need to do…speak up, be heard, let our elected officials know… joining groups may or may not be effective – but let us not shirk our responsibilities any longer

    • unfortunately he is either ignorant or lying… the word has not been hijacked and without changing the Koran – and numerous other texts – it can’t simply be redefined…if you don’t change Islam, nothing will change… and we know changing it is blasphemy, punishable by death…

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
