As Salaam o Aleykum, Sheik Obama!
See...it's so easy to apologize for an offense and make peace. Between muslims.
Obama Apology to Muslim Women Orchestrated by Muslim U.S. House Rep.
Tuesday, June 24, 2008
An apology issued by Barack Obama to two Muslim women booted from the front lines of a public appearance by the Democratic presidential candidate last week was orchestrated by Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim ever elected to Congress.
Multiple congressional sources confirm that it was Ellison, D-Minn., who confronted Obama over the issue during a meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus.
Obama called the women to apologize after two volunteers with the campaign removed the women from the stage area behind the location where Obama would be speaking. The volunteers allegedly told the women it was because they were wearing traditional Muslim scarves.
