Obama Officially Endorses NYC Mosque Near Ground Zero


From USAToday:

President Obama tonight endorsed building an Islamic community center and mosque a few blocks from the site of the 9/11 attacks in New York City, saying that “Muslims have the right to practice their religion” just like anyone else.

“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 at an Iftar dinner at the White House honoring the Muslim holiday of Ramadan. “This is America.”
