Imam Who Issued Fatwa Against Islam Critic Got DOJ Contract, Holds Peace Prayer for Paris. HT: JudicialWatch.
A radical imam quietly hired by the Obama administration to teach Muslim federal prisoners is holding a “peace and unity prayer” to denounce the Paris terrorist attacks at the same mosque that he was ousted from years ago for issuing a fatwa against an author critical of Islam.
The Egyptian-born imam, Fouad ElBayly, was forced to step down from the Islamic Center of Johnstown in Windber, Pennsylvania several years ago after publicly stating that an ex-Muslim critic of Islam should receive the death penalty.
The woman, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, is a Somali-born activist who has long called for the reform of Islam to stop the radicals behind terrorist attacks and nations being run by Sharia law.
ElBayly was outraged when Ali was scheduled to appear at the University of Pittsburgh-Johnstown in 2007“She has been identified as one who has defamed the faith,” the Egyptian imam said of the feminist author. “If you come into the faith, you must abide by the laws, and when you decide to defame it deliberately, the sentence is death.” ElBayly and Islamic Center of Johnstown founder Mahmood Qazi also pressured the university to cancel Ali’s appearance but the school didn’t budge.
Incredibly, following the scandal the Obama administration hired ElBayly to teach Muslim federal prisoners. Americans paid ElBayly to deal with Muslim inmates at Cumberland Federal Correctional Institution in Cumberland, Maryland and provide them with “leadership and guidance.” Read the full story here.
