I almost changed that headline because I thought it might be slightly misleading but…. it’s really not. See for yourselves.
Via My Fox New York:
A Defense Department official visited a Virginia mosque Friday to reiterate the White House’s apologies for the burning of Korans at a US military base in Afghanistan, pledging that those responsible will be held “appropriately accountable.”
Peter Lavoy, acting assistant secretary of defense for Asian and Pacific security affairs, attended services at the ADAMS Center in Sterling, Va., and told the congregation he was there to express his “sincere regret” on behalf of the Department of Defense for the incident.
So far, now mention of who runs the ADAMS Center or what the Center represents. Actually, the Fox New York article never did.
However, CBS posted a photo of the head of the ADAMS Center and did identify his role with the Muslim Brotherhood without mentioning the group he heads IS the Muslim Brotherhood…
Imam Mohamed Magid, executive director of the ADAMS Center mosque and president of the Islamic Society of North America, said Friday’s session was designed to let Muslims around the world know that American Muslims were also concerned about the incident but were able to express those concerns and receive an apology and promise of a thorough investigation without resorting to violence.
“It was very satisfying, very heartwarming to hear an apology three times in one speech,” Magid said after the services.
Magid said Muslims across the world are rightfully concerned and upset to hear that Korans were burned in a careless manner. But he said that “absolutely the violence we have seen is unacceptable from an Islamic perspective.”
The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) IS the Muslim Brotherhood and the United States Department of Defense apologized to its leader on American Soil for burning Qur’ans on Afghanistan soil.
To say this is egregious would be an understatement.
Oh, and the headline isn’t the least bit misleading.
Incidentally, Mohamed Magid is the same gentleman Herman Cain apologized to after saying he would not consider hiring a Muslim to serve in his cabinet if elected president.
