Hillary Clinton: Obama Has Shown 'Respect & Appreciation of All Religions' -- Particularly Islam

Faith

"That hurts me so much, honestly."

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in Dhaka, Bangladesh, on Sunday, where she told an audience that the United States is not anti-Muslim. Additionally, she said that President Barack Obama has worked diligently to showcase his "respect and appreciation" for all religions -- particularly Islam.

Clinton's qualifier is noteworthy for a number of reasons. To begin, Bangladesh is an overwhelmingly Muslim country, so the appeal is clearly an attempt to convince Muslims of Obama's devotion to respecting their faith. With the U.S. facing consistent accusations of anti-Muslim bias, Clinton's statements were likely uttered in an effort to showcase the administration's continued efforts to bridge a divide with the Islamic world.
