‘This, by no means, sounds like a moderate Muslim leader’

By – 

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R., Texas) said that it is “truly unsettling” and “utterly appalling” that President Obama went before the United Nations on Wednesday and praised a controversial Muslim cleric who endorsed a fatwa encouraging the murder of U.S. troops in Iraq.

Obama came under scrutiny yesterday after the Washington Free Beacon reported on his commendation of controversial cleric Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah, who the president referred to as a moderate Muslim capable of helping to combat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (ISIL or ISIS) extremist ideology.

Critics noted that the cleric endorsed a 2004 fatwa advocating for the killing of U.S. soldiers in Iraq and has called “for the death of Jews,” according to terrorism analyst Patrick Poole.

Additionally, Bin Bayyah has served as the vice president of a Muslim scholars group that has reportedly endorsed Hamas and that was founded by a radical Muslim Brotherhood leader who has called “for the death of Jews and Americans,” according to multiple reports.

Gohmert, a vocal critic of radical Islam, told the Free Beacon that Obama’s efforts to boost Bin Bayyah and sell him to the world as a moderate cleric are “truly unsettling” and “utterly appalling.”

“It is truly unsettling that our Commander-in-Chief can praise someone with such a radical ideology in the midst of conducting airstrikes against those that hold the same beliefs, then finish his speech at the U.N. with his best impersonation of a determined George W. Bush,” Gohmert told the Free Beacon in a statement.
