This is curious.
President Obama’s so-called summit on “Countering Violent Extremism” opened this week. The second day of the three day event opened with a Muslim prayer.
But the problem is, no other religious text was presented during the portion of the event open to the press.
Imam Sheikh Sa’ad Musse Roble, president of the World Peace Organization in Minneapolis, MN, recited a “verse from the Quran” following remarks by Obama administration officials and Democratic members of Congress.
In translation those verses of the Quran mean ‘Whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption in the land, it’s as if he has slain mankind entirely, and whoever saves one life, it’s as if he has saved mankind entirely,’” Adam said.
Mosques serve as (sic) beacon of hope,” Adam said. “While imams’ provide moral compass for the Muslim community in navigating life.
The media has had very limited access to the event, which wraps up Thursday.
