A sheikh tied to the Iranian regime is currently teaching at two Maryland Islamic schools and leads a mosque in the state and teaches at another, Clarion Project discovered.
In addition, his daughter is posting pro-Hezbollah propaganda that glorifies violent jihad.
Sheikh Abdul Jalil Nawee is a Shiite cleric trained at a radical university in Iran. He has been the resident alim (religious leader) of the Idara-e-Jaferia Islamic Center in Burtonsville since November 2013. The facility was described as “one of the largest Islamic Centers on the East Coast.'
He was appointed by the mosque’s president, Syed Mohammed Naqvi, after Moulana Rafiq Naqvi fell ill.
The Islamic Center that Sheikh Jalil leads also runs the Jaferia Islamic School, a private school that teaches children between the ages of 5 and 15.

3. Iran admits: Regime working with Soros organization
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif says government working “closely” with George Soros' Open Society Foundations.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif said Sunday that the Iranian government has worked closely with billionaire George Soros' Open Society Foundations (OSF) organization.
Zarif made the remarks in response to questions raised in the Iranian parliament. According to Zarif, the activity began before he entered his current position, and he boasted that he had succeeded in “keeping the activity organized.”
OSF has funded a number of far-left organizations in Israel which seek to change the policy of Israel's government.
According to NGO Monitor, among the top beneficiaries of OSF funding is Human Rights Watch, which has been criticized for targeting, and falsely libeling, the state of Israel.
Another is J Street, which describes itself as “pro-Israel” but has been termed anti-Israelby others for, among other things, welcoming proponents of a boycott on Israel at its national conference and honoring IDF soldiers who refused orders.
4. Corbyn’s Anti-semitism is a threat to all of us —Stephen Harper and David Trimble
The rise in anti-Semitism across Europe should be alarming to all of us, and not just for moral reasons. History shows that the mindset which embraces anti-Semitism rarely restricts its hatred to the Jewish minority.
Today’s threats against Europe’s Jewish populations are both different and more diverse than those in the past. Far-right extremism is still with us, but now represents only one slice of the problem. Radical, jihadist Islam is now the much larger threat. However, the far-left has also become a substantial source of anti-Semitism.
