President Obama told reporters in Turkey that America is not defined by any one religion. "I've said before that one of the great strengths of the United States is, although as I mentioned we have a very large Christian population, we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values," said the president.

Also on Monday, the Associated Press reports, "Obama, making his first visit to a Muslim nation as president, declared Monday the United States 'is not at war with Islam' and called for a greater partnership with the Islamic world."
