If you have not had a chance to listen to President Obama’s speech at the Islamic Society of Baltimore, please invest few minutes to listen to it. Click here to listen
He shared a great prospective and insight into our Islamic belief system, even sighting the Holy Quran. Around the 32nd minute of the speech he even touched base on the conspiracy theories and the Sunni / Shia conflict; emphasizing that each of us should work hard against it to end the killing and create unity.
In his speech, President Obama quoted several letters that he received and read from Muslims in America. We all know it takes a lot of courage for any President to stand with Muslims in such a politically tensed situation and media attention.
We encourage each of you to take few minutes to send a simple short message to thank President Obama for his kind speech in support of Muslims in America. Click here to send a Thank you message to President Obama
