“We welcome President Obama’s use of one of the most beloved sayings of the Prophet Muhammad and appreciate the desire for religious inclusion and tolerance that apparently motivated his choice of references,” said CAIR Legislative Director Corey Saylor. “This reference, along with the president’s ground-breaking statement to the Muslim world in his inaugural address, can only serve to increase respect for religious diversity in America and help repair our nation’s damaged image worldwide.”

The Office of Faith Based and Neighborhood Partnerships will include a new President’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, composed of religious and secular leaders and scholars from different backgrounds. There will be 25 members of the Council, appointed to 1-year terms.

Strange that there are no Muslims on the Council  Huh?

But great speech from Obama, as always.

In the article itself, at the end. But I just read it again and it says there are 25 members and they've listed 15. So maybe there are Muslims on the Council. I hope so  Smiley
