Obama: The U.S. “Is Not, And Will Never Be, At War With Islam”
Let the wingnuts go crazy now! President Obama, vising Indonesia, affirmed our relationship with the Muslim world . Obama recalled his Cairo speech last year where he called for “a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world — one that creates a path for us to move beyond our differences.”
“I said then, and I will repeat now, that no single speech can eradicate years of mistrust,” Obama said. At the same time, he promised that “no matter what setbacks may come, the United States is committed to human progress.”
America “is not, and never will be, at war with Islam,” Obama insisted. “Instead, all of us must defeat al Qaeda and its affiliates, who have no claim to be leaders of any religion — certainly not a great world religion like Islam.”Click here for reuse options!
