Hamas-linked CAIR-Arizona chairman leads Arizona lawmakers in anti-Jewish, anti-Christian prayer
by Robert Spencer
"Hlayhel, who also serves as the part time imam of the Islamic Center of the Northeast Valley led the lawmakers and all those in attendance through the reading of al-Fatiha..."
The Fatihah, the first sura of the Qur'an, contains this:
"Guide us in the straight path, the path of those whom Thou hast blessed, not of those against whom Thou art wrathful, nor of those who are astray." (1:6-7)
The traditional Islamic understanding of this is that the "straight path" is Islam -- cf. Islamic apologist John Esposito's book Islam: The Straight Path. The path of those who have earned Allah's anger are the Jews, and those who have gone astray are the Christians.
