How About We Actually Listen To The People Behind Park 51? (Part Deux)
The imam spearheading plans for an Islamic center near the New York City site of the Sept. 11 terror attacks said Sunday that America’s sweeping constitutional rights are more in line with the true principles of Islam than the restrictions imposed by some Muslim regimes.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf told the Al Wasat newspaper in Bahrain that the freedoms enshrined by the U.S. Constitution also reflect true Muslim values.
A portion of the interview – to be published Monday – was seen Sunday by The Associated Press.
This strikes me as exactly the kind of thing that US citizens should want an Imam to be saying.
