President Obama is facing criticism from all sides for his comments on the building of an Islamic center and mosque near Ground Zero.
On Friday, the president said, "Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country.” He went on to say, “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."
The President made the comments during a White House speech marking the start of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month.
