President Obama Backs Mosque Near Ground Zero
Mash’allah! President Barack Obama on Friday endorsed allowing a mosque near ground zero, saying the country’s founding principles demanded no less. Obama made the comments at an annual White House dinner celebrating Ramadan.
“Let me be clear, as a citizen and President, I believe Muslims have the right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country. That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan with local laws and orders. This is America and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable. The principle that people of all faiths are welcomed in this country and that they will not be treated differently by their government is essential to who we are.” – President Barack Obama
Sorry Pamella Geller, it is what it is!
