Posted on 09/02/2009 7:04:16 AM PDT by Joiseydude
WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama on Tuesday praised American Muslims for enriching the nation's culture at a dinner to celebrate the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
"The contribution of Muslims to the United States are too long to catalog because Muslims are so interwoven into the fabric of our communities and our country," Obama said at the iftar, the dinner that breaks the holiday's daily fast.
The president joined Cabinet secretaries, members of the diplomatic corps and lawmakers to pay tribute to what he called "a great religion and its commitment to justice and progress."

Huh? Is this practiced on another planet, because its not practiced on earth?
And, almost 8 years later to the day.
He couldn’t be more wrong.
about half of this nation is too stupid to cast a vote. they put this guy in office. we are a judeo christian nation and within a few short months, this guy is now calling us a muslim nation? Centuries ago, this would have been the Crusades all over again. WHERE IS EVERYBODY?
Yeah! They really enriched out culture on 9/11.
More bowing and scraping.
Can anyone name any positive contributions?
You have to remember they are the ones responsible for thinking up democracy, the magna carta, the industrial revolution, the wheel, numerous inventions, penicillin, insulin, and putting the first man on the moon.
I continue to be amazed at Islamic countries’ contributions to the arts, medicine, science, literature. Give me a break!!
These backward Third World S-— Hole countries continue to grow smaller in the rear view mirror of the west.
Those muslim scum will remove Obama’s head if they get the opportunity.
Not letting MY guard down.
A nation where 52.9% of the voting populace are boobs being led by a dangerous fool.
America is about to erupt into violence and that is exactly what this monster we have in the White House wants. The gulages are ready and waiting.
Boy, let's list a few...9-11
Let's not forget the Cole
and who could forget Lockerbie...
Yes, the list is too long to catalog....
Bravo Sierra. I never even saw on until I was in high school and even that was only because I lived in DC and attended a school with lots of diplomat kids. Never saw another one until fairly recently when the damn flood gates must have been opened. Other than the occasional gas station owner.
“The contribution of Muslims to the United States are too long to catalog...”
Please, name one.
Let us NEVER forget those nearly 3,000 innocent Americans who were murdered by the Islamists.
Dont let Obama desecrate the memory of those Americans who were murdered by his fellow Muslims. Send this video to everyone you know.
Every American should view this video made by a New Yorker who lived through the attack:
This video has been viewed by untold millions and is now in the Smithsonian.
(Sadly, the New Yorker who made this video has since succumbed to lung damage sustained during the attack)
The video includes the planes crashing into the buildings and victims jumping. There are pictures of many of those who lost their lives, and president Bushs aftermath speech set to the haunting background music, Only Time by Enya. It is truly awesome.
I’ve read that in the 1950s, there were only 2 mosques in the US, and both numbered their members in the hundreds.
I’ve been to Afghanistan...their contributions there include killing their women whenever they wish, and killing infidels any time they get the chance. Great religion.
Who is it?
And I guess there are no Rev. Wright type Black Nationalist churches in the DC area since Obamah hasn't joined a real Christian church in the area.
"Justice": Hanging a woman because she was raped.
"Progress": Having a gallows anywhere you can put a motor crane...
Where is everybody? They are getting their government checks, watching TV, laying around inside their government housing, and talking on their cell phones.
The year and a half I spent in Saudi Arabia and Iraq was enough for me to know that Muslims are NOT peace loving people. Completely barbaric society..
According to the Bible, all followers of Allah are destined for Hell.
This kind of phony kowtowing was nauseating when Bush did it. But I think B.O. really means it. What an ignorant fool.
Islam’s “commitment to JUSTICE and PROGRESS??” The extraordinary irrelevance of facts to our leftist pals never ceases to amaze me. Evidently Hussein gives his Islamic comrades credit for progressing all the way to the 8th or 9th century. The justice part? Perhaps the suicide bombers are using CLEAN nuts, bolts and metal shards in their homemade devices!
Same here. I despise muslims.
commitment to justice? Yeah they just can’t behead enough..that’s commitment.
Using a singletree to hang two from one crane...
That's the key. Bush was being PC while knowing full well what barbarians they are. Obama, who before the election went all out to conceal his Islamic roots, actually means it.
Progress??? Progress at what infiltrating our congress, white house, government, banking, law enforcement...????
Amen. There are no moderates. They lie in wait. They are here.
Disgusting, nauseating, insulting...
At this point, anyone who doesn’t think Barry Hussein is a muslim, is by default, dumb as a box of rocks!
He’s the perfect “inside” guy for them.
One of their own, bringing America down.
The ultimate coup for the jihadists.
“...this guy is now calling us a muslim nation...”
You’re right, there is no widespread outrage. We’re good sheep now. We’re lambs heading to slaughter.
FR? .....out there on the fringe.
