Her father originally delivered the ‘Islam is Peace’ speech on 17th September 2001, just six days after the 911 terror attacks at the Islamic Centre of Washington D.C.
Jenna also posted the excerpt on her Instagram handle:
Jenna is amongst several who have gone on record about their disagreement with trump’s executive order.
One of the many reasons I am opposed to the #MuslimBan is because my family immigrated to North America (????) after fleeing wars in Russia.
