Obama Speech: Reject Discrimination and Religious Tests


President Obama re-emphasized that the US is not at war with Islam. In his (December 6) Oval Office address, he said the terrorists represent a minority of Muslims who embrace what he called “a perverted interpretation of Islam.”

President Obama: “Just as it is the responsibility of Muslims around the world to root out misguided ideas that lead to radicalization, it is the responsibility of all Americans of every faith to reject discrimination. It is our responsibility to reject religious tests on who we admit into this country.
