Moztecs cheer Obama for invoking Crusades at Prayer Breakfast The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is cheering after President Obama blamed Christians for the Crusades in a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast. CAIR is now "inviting President Barack Obama to visit an American mosque, enthusiastically embracing the president’s controversial comments at the National Prayer Breakfast this week comparing past Christian misdeeds to the Islamic State," reports The Blaze. Obama said: "Lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ," Obama said. "In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ." Obama met with 15 Muslim leaders at the White House Wednesday, but the White House has not yet released the names, only that they were “American Muslim leaders.” "We invite the president to show public support for American Muslims by making the symbolic but significant gesture of visiting an American mosque in this time of growing Islamophobia," said Nihad Awad, national executive director of CAIR.
