Obama still supports Mosque by Ground Zero

Quote noted by Marc Aupiais

When our service claimed that the Democrats supported the Muslim cultural centre nearby the site of the 9/11 plane crash, some other services noted some Democrats opposed the Mosque at ground Zero: these Democrats are often those from areas, where they are in danger of losing their seat:

None the less, the Democratic party, lead by Obama, has taken the gamble of supporting the Mosque, as SACNS did in fact claim. Mr Obama's policies are certainly not those of a faithful Muslim, his support of Gay Civil Unions and a White House speech calling Gay Marital Special Interest promoters heroic show a very non-Muslim view of the world. A more likely reason for his support of the Mosque, lies in his support base. The Democratic Party, as a previous quotes analysis, quoting the online version of Time Magazine showed, has two Muslim lawmakers- and thus Muslim constituencies.

I firstly quote notation of American views made by Obama and NBC Nightly News, as quoted in Politico, and finally, I look into the fact that Obama does still support the Mosque. He does not simply support the legal right, but a societal right, even if he did simply support a legal right, his position as President of the United States of America, as someone who directs lawmaking, gives him the power to institute legislation to change laws. The Mosque, according to France 24, a French government station: has accompanied growing anti-Islamic special interests sentiments rising in America.


"Williams, sitting under a tent in a rain-soaked New Orleans, where the First Family commemorated the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, asked Obama why so many people were uncertain about something so fundamental as his faith.

“I can’t spend all of my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead,” quipped Obama, who took a deep breath to gather his thoughts when asked if the poll reflected his inability to communicate with voters.

“The facts are the facts. We went through some of this during the campaign — there is a mechanism, a network of misinformation that in a new media era can get churned out there constantly,” said a visibly annoyed Obama, referring to “birthers,” who have waged a guerrilla campaign questioning either the existence or the validity of his Hawaiian birth certificate.

“I will always put my money on the American people, and I’m not going to be worried too much about what rumors are floating around there.”

A stunning 18 percent of Americans identify Obama as Muslim, according to a Pew poll released earlier this month. Only a third identified Obama, who speaks passionately about his faith in his autobiography, as Christian. [Obama has disassociated himself from his controversial former pastor, whom some had claimed he was linked to for political reasons, and not due to any endorsement of the pastor's radical views, and does not reportedly attend any church regularly, the controversy about his being "Muslim", does in fact lie with birth, with it claimed on a major American news service's debate, that the origins of this, is the alleged belief that a man born of a Muslim father is genetically Muslim, with it additionally claimed by the speaker that Obama's father is Muslim]

[...]

Obama doubled down on his support for a mosque and community center planned for a site two blocks north of ground zero in lower Manhattan – and denied reports that he tried to back away from backing the controversial project.

“I didn’t walk it back it all,” he said. “I was very specific with my team… The core value and principle that every American is treated the same doesn’t change… At [a White House Ramadan celebration], I had Muslim Americans who had been in uniform fighting in Iraq… How can you say to them that their religious faith is less worthy of respect?... That’s something that I feel very strongly about.”"

Politico's in-house bibliography of their author:

"Glenn Thrush covers Capitol Hill for Politico. Before that he spent five years with Newsday – the last three in Washington following Hillary Rodham Clinton’s highly entertaining presidential quest – with a little Rudy Giuliani, Barack Obama and Chuck Schumer thrown in.

For the preceding two years, he was ensconced in the basement of New York’s City Hall, where he annoyed Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He’s a veteran of Bloomberg News, former editor of City Limits, a monthly that covers low-income neighborhoods in New York, ex-editorial director of think tanks Child Welfare Watch and the Center for an Urban Future and one-time statehouse and education reporter for the late, great Birmingham (Ala.) Post-Herald.

Before his attention span was incinerated by daily journalism, he wrote lots of long stories for places like the New York Times Magazine, New York, the New York Observer, Spin, the Village Voice, Metropolis and Guitar World, where his work appeared under the byline “Glenn Thrash.”

He’s a native of Brooklyn and a graduate of Sheepshead Bay High School, Larry David’s alma mater. His mother attended Madison High School and was one of its few graduates never to run for the Senate."
