Jasser: Obama’s Choice of Mosque Insulted Me

Thursday on “The Alan Colmes Show,” Alan spoke with Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum Dr. Zudhi Jasser, who told Alan why he was “insulted” by the speech President Obama made at the Islamic Center of Baltimore Wednesday.

Dr. Jasser said that President Obama should not have chosen a mosque that was “non-compatible” with the message of tolerance President Obama was trying to convey. Alan countered that argument by saying that right-wing candidates have been known to campaign at churches and with other organizations what also have teaching some would consider “intolerant.”

Dr. Jasser and Alan debated whether the mosque President Obama spoke at leads to “the conveyor belt” to ISIS, whether President Obama should have appeared at a mosque that represents the reform movement instead, and if President Obama is ignoring the political aspect of Islam.
