Glenn Beck’s The Blaze: Imam Covertly Damns Seal Team 6 Members to Hell During Their Funeral

In a bizarre article from Glenn Beck’s The Blaze this Thursday, an Imam that spoke at the funeral for fallen service members was accused of covertly damning them to hell with the Islamic prayer he recited.

In August of 2011, a Chinook helicopter crashed after being shot down by the Taliban in Afghanistan, killing 30 Americans and 8 Afghans on board, among the dead being 22 members of SEAL Team 6. Elements of the fringe right wing have long tried to blame Obama for the attack through a variety of conspiracy theories.

Yesterday, four families of servicemen who were killed in the attacks held a press conference at the National Press Club, accusing the U.S. government of being complicit in their sons’ deaths. Interestingly, the families are represented by Larry Klayman, who is a proponent of numerous bizarre and racially charged claims about the Obama Administration.

Aside from Klayman’s inclusion, some of the claims made by the families seem plausible. But instead of focusing on this, The Blaze chose to highlight the families’ contention that “military brass, while prohibiting any mention of a Judeo-Christian God, invited a Muslim cleric to the funeral for the fallen Navy SEAL Team VI heroes who disparaged in Arabic the memory of these servicemen by damning them as infidels to Allah.”

Making the piece more convoluted, The Blaze goes on to offer dueling translations of the prayer, one from Klayman himself, who interpreted the prayer as meaning “that the fallen seals should be damned and go to hell as infidels.”

Here is Larry Klayman’s version of the prayer in the video below.

    Another complete moron who thinks that Allah is a different God than the Abrahamic God (what he refers to as the God of Moses). They are the same God, Jews, Christians and Muslims all worship the same God, the God of Abraham. I am really sick of being told by narrow minded bigots who have never had a truly Christian thought that I don’t know what I’m talking about and the Christians don’t even worship the same God as Jews let alone Muslims. STUPID, STUPID, STUPID!! I do not forgive willful ignorance.

    Bob – God is made up… just though I’d let you know. Sorry to be the one to have to burst the bubble for ya, but sometimes the truth hurts.

    You aren’t bursting any bubble for me, hermes. I am agnostic, I am only pointing out that all three of the major religions worship one God and all of them think that their particular brand of worship is the only correct one. Unlike them, I know that all of their religious texts are not a single book but a collection of totally unrelated texts under a single cover.

    Come now, Hermes. Maybe you’re the one that’s made up. I never believed in the Greek Gods anyway.

    And many of them were written decades or centuries after the death of Jesus, so not by eye-witnesses to what they’re writing about.
