100 years ago today, on November 14, 1914, the last “Caliph” of the Islamic world declared a holy war on all non believers. Just a few months later, a jihadist genocide of Christians occurred on a massive scale, resulting in the deaths of millions.
On the 100th anniversary of the religiously-motivated genocide of Christians, several Islamic groups, all of which have alleged connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, hosted the first Muslim prayers ever at Washington D.C.’s National Cathedral.
Breitbart News was on the scene at Washington’s National Cathedral, hoping to get some answers to concerns about Islamic prayers being hosted at the Cathedral on such a painful anniversary, and why the event was sponsored by alleged members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Breitbart’s interview with Dean of the National Cathedral, Gary Hall, can be found here. Below, an interview with Ambassador Ebrahim Rasool, who helped organize the prayers.
Rasool was asked whether it was appropriate to hold Muslim prayers on such a tragic anniversary for the Christian people. “It’s deliciously appropriate,” replied Rasool. “We stand in a Christian cathedral, make common cause with the Christian middle ground, and make a commitment, that never again must there be intolerance towards Christians or any other faith,” he added. “We stand up against extremism from the house of Islam and wherever it else it may emanate.”
