Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.) said on Sunday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, (D-CA) made "a bad call" by allowing a Texas imam with a history of anti-Israel comments to deliver the noon prayer in the House of Representatives last week.

The imam, Omar Suleiman of Irving, Texas, was introduced by Pelosi before he delivered the prayer from the rostrum on Thursday.  He had been invited to speak by Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-Texas.
