CAIR-Chicgao Executive Director, Ahmed Rehab, debates anti-Muslim bigot Pamela Geller, founder of atlasshrugs.com and the Islamophobic hate-group Stop the Islamization of America (SOIA), regarding the Cordoba House in lower Manhattan.  Rehab argues that Muslim Americans have every right to build a mosque and Muslim community center anywhere in America, while Geller associates all Muslims with 9/11 and terrorism.

“American Muslims share in the diversity of America- including the diversity of those who died in 9-11.  9-11 was an affront against all Americans, including us,” says Rehab.

“The only reason why this would be offensive is if you assume that Muslim’s at large collectively are guilty for 9-11.  If you don’t, then there’s no problem whatsoever.  The people who are building the center are not the same people who were involved in 9-11.” – Rehab
