Dalia Mogahed appointed as Obama’s advisor


Dalia Mogahed has been appointed to President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. She will be advising the President Obama on prejudices and problems faced by Muslims.

Dalia Mogahed is a senior analyst and executive director of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies. In an interview with Saudi-owned Al Arabiya satellite news channel, she said, “My work focuses on studying Muslims, the way they think and their views. Then I should tell the president about their problems and needs, especially that lately Muslims have been perceived as a source of problems and as incapable of taking part in solving international problems and that they should work on themselves. Now we want to say that Muslims are capable of providing solutions.”

Dalia Mogahed moved to United States about 30 years ago from Egypt. She has always maintained that her loyality goes first to United States. I beleive she is absolutely right in doing so. A person should be loyal to her/his place habitat in all deeds and actions.

Congratulations to Dalia Mogahed for her appointment as advisor. I would like to wish her all the best and hope that she will do her best in her new role and pointing out the porblems faced by Muslims and resolving those issues.
