According to the Daily Mail:
. . . Islamist group Hamas today backed the mosque plan.
Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahar said Muslims 'have to build everywhere' so that followers can pray, just like Christians and Jews build their places of worship.
Al-Zahar spoke Sunday on 'Aaron Klein Investigative Radio' on WABC-AM in the U.S. He is a co-founder of Hamas and its chief on the Gaza Strip.
Nice to see Hamas come out for freedom of religion. Does it surprise anyone to see Hamas and President Obama joined in agreement and at odds with the vast majority of the rest of America, including many American Muslims.
If you haven't read it yet, do see Zhudi Jasser's statement on this travesty below. In it, he takes the President to task for playing into the hands of political Islmists the world over and setting back the cause of reform of Islam.
