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 worlds major religions.
During Hajj, the worlds 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 Abrahams willingness to sacrifice his son out of obedience to God.
This year, I am pleased that the Department of Health and Human Services has partnered with the Saudi Health Ministry to prevent and limit the spread of H1N1 during Hajj. Cooperating on combating H1N1 is one of the ways we are implementing my administration's commitment to partnership in areas of mutual interest.
On behalf of the American people, we would like to extend our greetings during this Hajj season Eid Mubarak.

There wasn't enough room in the title to add a Barf Your Turkey Alert, not that one is especially necessary for an article such as this
He pardoned a Turkey, though.
He definitely did that.
(Pandering to PETA, eh?)
Trying to remember....did he do this on the National Day of Prayer also?
This is a joke, right? On Thanksgiving?
On behalf of the American people, you don’t speak for us!
On behalf of the American people we wish all at the Hajj
a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!
“The rituals of Hajj and Eid-ul-Adha both serve as reminders of the shared Abrahamic roots of three of the worlds major religions.”
What an arrogant idiot obama is. That’s his “reality”, not ours.
You DO NOT speak for me!
The downfall of the arrogant is their arrogance ...
0bama is a muslim. There is no other logical conclusion tbat can be derived from his behavior this past year. And our military men and women, as well as our people, are the worse for it. People are dying.
“I have been to all 57 states. One more to go.”
Can there still be any doubt where this scum’s loyalties lie?
America wishes you a happy Hajj and may all your jihads be merry!
The New Yorker mag cover hit the nail on the head didn’t it?
So, that is where the H1N1 vaccines went?!
Allah is not the God of Abraham. Islam does not have Abrahamic roots.
Did Obama issue a SpecialThank You Message to The Troops ??
Did I miss it?
Well they ARE famous for hijacking. ;)
