Obama greets muslim pilgrims
Boston Globe ^ | 11/25/09 | Foon Rhee

Posted on 11/25/2009 2:36:06 PM PST by La Enchiladita

President Obama continued his outreach to the world's Muslims today, sending greetings to pilgrims to Mecca.

....

"Michelle and I would like to send our best wishes to all those performing Hajj this year, and to Muslims in America and around the world who are celebrating Eid-ul-Adha. The rituals of Hajj and Eid-ul-Adha both serve as reminders of the shared Abrahamic roots of three of the world’s major religions," Obama said in a statement.

"During Hajj, the world’s largest and most diverse gathering, three million Muslims from all walks of life – including thousands of American Muslims – will stand in prayer on Mount Arafat. The following day, Muslims around the world will celebrate Eid-ul-Adha and distribute food to the less fortunate to commemorate Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son out of obedience to God," the president added in the statement, translated on the White House website into Arabic, Persian, Dari, Urdu, Pashto, Russian, and French.

....

"On behalf of the American people, we would like to extend our greetings during this Hajj season – Eid Mubarak."

Glad to see his idea of diversity is Muslims only.

I, for one, am eagerly looking forward to Obama’s heartfelt and moving Christmas eve speech, wherein he honors the foundational contributions of Christianity and its worldview to the founding of the United States, and our great tradition of liberty.

In fact, I expect him to declare December 25 to be National American Christian Heritage Day.

Actually, I don’t expect Obama to acknowledge Christmas at all, except perhaps maybe in passing, in the most perfunctory way possible (probably as third on a list of other “holidays” beginning with Kwanzaa).

P.S. I am not a Christian (having been born and raised Jewish, although I no longer practice Judaism).

Unless a rocket is attached with that message I don’t want him saying anything on behalf of me. FUBO.

Unless his idea of a greeting includes the delivery of a critical mass of fissionable material, he can stop speaking for me. That's the only type of greeting I'm interested in extending to them.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, waaaaay out line there Rawhide! Obama has to set priorities, ya' know. Thanking God for blessings is lower on the priority list than reinforcements for our troops. Sooo, you can expect a mild reference to the Thanksgiving holiday in March sometime.

Hah! Want to bet we get to hear all about the presents he bought the daughters, Michelle, Rahm, the SEIU, ACORN, the GM and Chrysler unions, etc.?

I can't wait to hear his State of the Union speech. It's going to be all about how could save the world - if only he could rid the world of those evil conservatives.

Equating Islam with Judaism and Christianity is grounds for jihad, but since Zero's a Moslem, the Muzzies know this is just part of the plan for takeover.
