Mass Democratic Party Supports Muslims
By Parwez Wahid

Boston: The Massachusetts Democratic Party has issued a statement in response to the remarks made by Governor Mitt Romney regarding mosques.
Romney, a Republican, who is believed to be seeking the Presidential nomination in 2008, made an inflammatory remark when he stated that mosques should be wiretapped and Muslims students monitored closely in an effort to counter terrorism. Muslims across the state and also from different parts of the country demanded that Romney apologize for these remarks.
Jane Lane, spokesperson of the Massachusetts Democratic Party, issued a statement in support of the Muslims. It reads:
“It is incomprehensible that Gov. Romney would refuse to apologize today for the offensive and un-American statements he made earlier this week suggesting that the United States government should be wiretapping mosques and monitoring foreign students. The Massachusetts Democratic Party stands in solidarity with our Muslim friends throughout the state who are understandably outraged at his remarks and we join them in demanding an apology from the governor.”
This statement has been posted on the Massachusetts Democratic Party website www.massdems.org.
