    Statement by the President on the Occasion of Ramadan | The White House

    On behalf of the American people, Michelle and I want to extend our best wishes to Muslims in America and around the world. Ramadan Kareem.
    Ramadan is a time when Muslims around the world reflect upon the wisdom and guidance that comes with faith, and the responsibility that human beings have to one another, and to God. This is a time when families gather, friends host iftars, and meals are shared. But Ramadan is also a time of intense devotion and reflection – a time when Muslims fast during the day and pray during the night; when Muslims provide support to others to advance opportunity and prosperity for people everywhere. For all of us must remember that the world we want to build – and the changes that we want to make – must begin in our own hearts, and our own communities.
    These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings. Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality. And here in the United States, Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country. And today, I want to extend my best wishes to the 1.5 billion Muslims around the world – and your families and friends – as you welcome the beginning of Ramadan.
    I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.
    May God’s peace be upon you.

    Emphasis added, can someone please give examples where Islam advocates "justice, progress and tolerance"? And in what history book is he reading that states Islam has always been apart of America?
    :rolleyes:

    Here's what I got out of the message:

    Muslims in America and around the world provide support. For all of us must remember that the world we want to build – and the changes that we want to make. These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common. Islam has always been part of America. I want to extend my best wishes to the 1.5 billion Muslims around the world.


    That's word for word, in order --just not in the precise context delivered. However, a lot of people can read "between the lines", I am not the only one.

    Oh it just continues to get better. Lord Obama went on to make a statement at this Islamic Religious Dinner that he supports the construction of a Mosque in New York City near ground zero.
    .
    JMHO, but the people of city and State of New York should fight this with all they can.
    .
    This is an Obamination.

    Sooner or later one of these many many straws is going to break the camels back. When it happens, and it will, it won't be pretty.

    Yea I do, he was one of the slaves on the ship!

    "American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country." I'm still scratching my head trying to figure out who Zero is talking about, maybe all the convenience store clerks and taxi drivers???

    This guy makes me so sick that I really would like to post with mainly cuss words. Why not just admit that he is a muslim (I refuse to capitalize it) and be done with it.

    LOL...well...he just may be right! They always say that "American way of life" is actually synonym for oil, and since almost all of oil is imported from Arab countries...they are Muslim, and there are American Muslims, so apparently he makes some connection there??? Hmmmm...this was probably one of the dumbest things I ever wrote...but...I'm still young, I'm sure I'll write more dumb things....
    My brain hurts...always happens when I try to think.... :)

    The Liberals like to remind us that there was an Islamist aboard one of Columbus' ships in 1492. Yep - but they forget to tell us this individual gave up Islam and became a Christian - for good reason........ The Spanish still had a sore spot about the temporary take-over of Spain by the Moors. Many Islamic persons either converted or were either driven away or killed.......

    The last big contribution to the Human Condition by the People of Islam was in mathematics and astronomy. Hmmmm.... way before this continent was settled by Europe.

    Anything since....?

    What do you mean "Anything since?"...They just had no time for that science mumbo-jumbo...They had oil to drill and sell and suicide bombers to train...just not enough time... b::

    WE drilled the oil - TIL they kicked us out....... :rolleyes:

    They owe their current technology level to The Western World, otherwise they'd still be riding camels between mudhut villages, and trying to kickstart their raggedy carpets....... b::

    Islam is an ideology that epitomizes evil. If any one doubts that statement they should read:
    The Legacy of Jihad by Andrew Bostom MD.
    Dr Bostom used muslim sources exclusively for this book that explores the history of Islam.
    1400 years of devastation that has murdered hundreds of millions. From Africa, Europe, Asia (particularly India) these barbarous hordes have spread like a pox on humanity. This is an ideology that mutilates women, subjugates all with a madness with the sword. The book is a big read but all sources and events are meticulously documented. Islam spreads via terrorism, open warfare, and overcoming the host countries with a higher birthrate than the host. Islam only fears power. Check out General Jack Pershings' history of dealing with them.
    Europe is about to go under from this ideology and the USA is already infected and we have a muslim pretender in the White House.
    We all need to be praying........

    I really, really (REALLY) wish I'd kept a speech he gave that I watched on YouTube where he stated unconditionally (and not out of context) that he was a muslim.
     
  17. Seawolf1090

    Seawolf1090 Adventure Riding Monkey Founding Member

    There's one where he unconditionally states, quite clearly, that he is NOT an American Citizen and was born in Kenya.

    Why the "H.E. Double Hockey Sticks" can't the masses and Congress see the crime in this...? :rolleyes:

    Probably because we censor everything and because most people are morons?

    I've got a video file at home of that. It was during the campaign and he was being interviewed. There was a question about faith and his response was "my muslim faith..." and the reporter corrected "you mean your Christian faith." (paraphrased, it's been a while since I've watched that vid).
