Obama defends Victory mosque and as usual, totally misses the point

He also said today, that Islam has always been a part of America. In that he is correct. Jefferson started the Marines in order to stop Islamic piracy and constant jihad upon the seas. I suppose one might also say that is a contribution to US society in a way. In exactly the same way that Ebola motivated the creation perhaps, of some specific wonder antibiotics.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Friday endorsed plans for a Muslim mosque two blocks from ground zero in New York City, declaring that “Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country.”

In remarks prepared for delivery at a White House dinner celebrating the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, Obama said all Americans have the right to worship as they choose.

“That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances, Obama said. “This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakeable.”

Obama emphasized the point as New York City is immersed in a deeply sensitive debate about whether a mosque should be built near the site of the World Trade Center’s twin towers.

It was the president’s first remarks about the mosque controversy. The White House previously called the matter solely a local one.

At the dinner attended by two Muslim-American congressmen, Obama acknowledged that hot-fire emotions the planned mosque and cultural center have stoked.

“Ground Zero is, indeed, hallowed ground,” the president said.

  1. Air Force One’s low flyover was a direct statement to the American people.

    This statement speaks out of two sides of the same mouth – veiled in taqiyya and kitman. Obama is assuming that we still believe that Islam is a religion.

  2. Yes its funny how people have forgotten about that. That little stunt right after he was elected, added to his pushing of the victory mosque, well it makes it pretty clear.

  3. It seems that seventy percent of the US public are against the mosque. That means that Obama has committed political suicide. Sometimes the need to love islam is so strong that suicide bombing his chances of being re-elected is the only thing to do this Ramadan. The President is so lofty and haughty he has no idea. He is completely in love with Islam as are his fellow poloticians in the Whitehouse. Only problem is that the people hate and detest islam. People who are infidels and proud of it. The elite and its disconnect with its people; hmmmm, why am I not surprised by that.
