"I, too, am a Jew" in a sign of Christian solidarity with the Jewish people. Thursday, he'll speak at the National Prayer Breakfast, a largely Christian annual gathering in Washington.
And while Obama will discuss ways the government can work with Muslims to counter Islamic extremism at home and abroad, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Tuesday that the president sees the contributions of Muslim Americans in a much broader context.
"I also don't want to leave you with the impression that the president’s remarks at the mosque are going to be focused on national security," he said. "I think the President is quite interested in making sure that we're affirming the important role that Muslims play in our diverse American society, and certainly affirming their right to worship God in a way that's consistent with their heritage. And they shouldn’t be subject to ridicule or targeting by anybody, let alone somebody who aspires to leading the country."
Those comments — and, likely, Obama's noontime speech at the Islamic Society of Baltimore Wednesday, continue a not-so-veiled White House campaign to rebuff the campaign rhetoric of Donald Trump, whose second-place showing in the GOP presidential nomination is fueled largely by promises to conduct surveillance on mosques and ban Muslims from entering the United States.

Hours after speaking at the Pentagon, where a hijacked plane was crashed last Tuesday, he visited Washington's largest Islamic center. There he asked the public to view Arabs and Muslims living in the United States as American patriots, saying that intimidation and harassment of them ''will not stand in America.''
In a gesture that surprised and gratified Islamic leaders, Bush stepped up an already intense effort by his administration to prevent hate crimes and discrimination against nearly 10 million American Arabs and Muslims in retaliation for the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks by Middle Eastern terrorists.
"The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam," said the president, escorted by Islamic clerics into the ornate mosque full of Turkish tile, Persian rugs and Egyptian paintings. "Islam is peace."

Just as well he is not going to be president for much longer.
It's totally his fault that ISIS got created in the first place and now he's trying to shut the door after the horse has bolted by this display of 'unity' with the local muslims.
If I were a Muslim, I'd throw eggs at him because he is just paying lip service for the cameras.
