A Muslim scholar whose group supports Hamas, who has urged the U.N. to criminalize blasphemy and who is the deputy of an Egyptian cleric banned from the U.S. over his radical statements was able to secure a visit at the White House earlier this month.
Bin Bayyah is vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, a group founded by Egyptian cleric Yusuf Qaradawi -- a Muslim Brotherhood leader who has called for the death of Jews and Americans and himself is banned from visiting the U.S. While Bin Bayyah secured a visit, he and his group also have a history of questionable positions, IPT reports. A 2009 fatwa from the group barred "all forms of normalization" with Israel. Bin Bayyah also got behind a campaign to pressure the U.N. to pass a resolution criminalizing blasphemy. IPT also found Bin Bayyah was vice president at the organization when they issued a 2004 fatwa saying that resisting U.S. troops in Iraq is a "duty" for Muslims -- effectively allowing the killing of Americans.

Children don't get to visit the White House but Radical clerics get to?
Something wrong with that picture.

I guess I can't believe that there isn't more outrage about this. We the people, We the taxpayers, We the voters have no right to visit our nation's capital any longer... But, a known terrorist that advocates the death of "We the people" gets an invitation?
