Ground Zero Mosque

"President Barack Obama on Friday offered his support for a controversial project to build a mosque near Ground Zero, in the face of opposition from the families of 9/11 victims. “I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country,” Obama was expected to say, according to remarks prepared for delivery at a White House dinner marking the Islamic holiday of Ramadan. “That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances.”
