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. Ali also operates a nonprofit dedicated to protecting girls and women’s rights, has published several books on Islam and her articles appear regularly in mainstream newspapers. She has long exposed how women suffer under Islam and is a fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School.
