An excerpt from this Daily Caller article: The Muslim Brotherhood Isn’t The Only Gang In Town
In July, an “interfaith service” was held for the victims of the Dallas police shootings. On national television and in newspapers across the country, the cleric Omar Suleiman could be seen sitting just a few feet behind the 43rd and 44th first couples: George and Laura Bush, and Barack and Michelle Obama.
Surely unknown to these two American Presidents and their wives, Omar Suleiman describes homosexuality as a “disease” and a “repugnant shameless sin.”
In sermons published openly on YouTube, Suleiman warns, without condemnation, that women who commit adultery risk being killed by a family member. In another talk on the question of slavery in Islam, Suleiman defends sex slavery, or concubines, on the grounds that captured women would otherwise escape and become prostitutes – and that “society’s welfare” is more important than the “individual’s welfare.”
Suleiman is also an “instructor” at the Al Maghrib Institute, where his colleagues include Abdullah Hakim Quick, a preacher who has called upon God to “clean and purify Al-Aqsa from the ﬁlth of the Yahood [Jews]”; and Abu Eesa Niamatullah, who has said of Jews, “They find it so easy and natural to do what they do….Look at them today, look at the way they massacre. They blow up babies like as if it’s a computer game. They have no humanity, no morality, no ethics.”
In what world is Suleiman a suitable attendee at a memorial for murdered police officers?
Without a more extended and inclusive focus, clerics such as Yusuf Islahi and Omar Suleiman will continue to indoctrinate young Muslims and sit within whispering distance of the world’s most powerful men.
