Obama Avoids Sikh Temple Because Headdress Make Him Look Like A Muslim; Plans To Visit Mosque Instead


President Obama assured Muslim world that improved relations between America and Islam is an "incomplete project." There will be more appeasing. (And perhaps a bit of grovelling now and then.)

Mr. Obama made clear his number one priority is submission. However, he reminded them, it is important that he avoids any outward appearance of pandering.

Planning for Obama's Asia trip featured a religious controversy when the president opted not to visit the Golden Temple Sikh holy site in India, spawning rumors that he wanted to avoid wearing a head covering that could make him appear Muslim. In Jakarta the president planned to visit the giant Istqlal Mosque, the largest mosque in Southeast Asia and a popular tourist attraction.
