Imam Husham Al-Husainy appeared on Hannity & Colmes this evening to respond to a controversial prayer he gave at last week’s DNC winter meeting. Al-Husainy denied that he has attended or led any pro-Hezbollah rallies.
Debbie Schlussel begs to differ:
During last summer’s Israel-Hezbollah war, al-Husainy led rallies in Dearborn in support of the Lebanese terrorist group. Protesters displayed swastikas as well as anti-American and anti-Semitic posters.
I attended one rally, at Dearborn’s Bint Jebail Cultural Center – named for the stronghold in south Lebanon from which Hezbollah rockets rained on Israel. Al-Husainy was among several who delivered hate-filled, anti-American rhetoric. He cheered as others called for the hastened destruction of the Jews.
She did some exclusive reporting at her blog and I am sure she will be responding to his appearance sometime tonight. Keep checking her blog.
Charles Johnson has a different camera view of the prayer — where DNC chair Howard Dean is standing right next to the Imam!
Update (from Michelle): Also keep an eye on Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch.
An unpleasant fact that has to be mentioned: Al-Husainy’s past conferring with the Bush Pentagon.
