DRUDGE: Obama skips statement on Easter; has commemorated all Muslim holidays...
White House Dossier ^ | 04/25/11 | Kevin Koffler

Posted on 04/25/2011 11:58:37 AM PDT by MissesBush

What? No Easter Greeting?

Just when I thought the current team running the White House might have used up all its allotted mistakes comes word that President Obama failed to issue either either an Easter or a Good Friday greeting to the nation.

Now, let’s forget for a moment that these greetings, which presidents issue on many holidays and commemorations of events, are largely perfunctory and symbolic gestures that nobody cares about.

Until there’s a problem with them.

Fox News first caught the blunder and put it into context that makes the omission insulting to Christians. The mistake is odd enough to call into question just what Obama’s priorities are.

By comparison, the White House has released statements recognizing the observance of major Muslim holidays and released statements in 2010 on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha.

The White House . . . did release an eight-paragraph statement heralding Earth Day. Likewise, the president’s weekend address mentioned neither Good Friday or Easter.

Obama, Fox notes, did head out to church yesterday and held an Easter prayer breakfast at the White House last week.

Obama is on a roll for religious holiday greeting screw ups. Fox News writes:

In 2010, Obama was criticized for releasing an all-inclusive Easter greeting. He reached out to Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and people of no faith at all in a statement about a holiday that is uniquely Christian.

And as I noted last week, the president released a Passover greeting this month that compared the ancient Jewish exodus from Egypt to the Arab political awakening this year, which would be a beautiful thing if most Arabs didn’t seek Israel’s destruction.

The president is, of course, hosting the Easter Egg Roll at the White House today. But Easter isn’t really about rolling eggs on a manicured lawn, now is it?

This guy is so offensive on so many levels. He'll greet Iran on some Muz holiday and even speak Persian in his message but then all he does for Easter is attend some black demagogue church where the nut job pastor compares Limbaugh to the KKK. How better to celebrate the greastest act of love in human history, the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and His glorious resurrection than by attending a hate church?

Yet many are still unconvinced he's not Christian.

Apparently his spokes-moron was asked about this and (no surprise) weasel-worded his way around the slight.

I hate these people.

When you're a muslim, you cannot acknowledge that Jesus was beaten, crucified and died, and resurrected. Obambi, being a muslim, believes, as Muhammed did, that Jesus, who was only a prophet to the heathens, would never have been allowed to suffer and die . . . Allah would have stopped it.

So, our muslim, illegal alien cannot even hint that Jesus died. Hence, he and Moochelle read from bunny books on Easter instead of from our Bible . . . kinda' like a direct, nasty thumb in the eye of all Christians.

baraq always refers to the quran as the “holy quran”.
With an outstanding arabic accent.
Made the statement that the muslim call to prayers is one of the most beautiful sounds on earth.
baraq goes out of his way to make statements around muslim holy days, but stumbles around about the true meaning of Easter.

but he’s not a muslim. Just ask his media.

Ever wonder what he was trying to say when one of his first acts as a world leader was to return the statue of Winston Churchill, proudly displayed in the Whitehouse as a gift from our good allies in the United Kingdom?

This aughta say...........

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries!     Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia     in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.   Improvident habits, slovenly     systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of     property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.  A degraded     sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its     dignity and sanctity.  The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must     belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or     a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam     has ceased to be a great power among men."     "Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities.   Thousands become the     brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die.   But the influence     of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.     No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.   Far from being moribund,     Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytising faith.   It has already spread     throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were     it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science     against which it had vainly struggled - the civilisation of modern Europe might     fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."    -- Winston Churchill

That's how to piss off an Islamist in the Whitehouse.

He was raised as a non Christian.. His grandparents were socialists that “sometimes” went to a Unitarian/Universalist church.. my guess is he has no clue that Easter is actually the most important Christian holy day

For a guy who says he doesn’t want the American people to think he’s a Muslim, he sure as hell wants somebody to think he is.

Wife and I were thinking last night that the only networks to have anything on about the story of the crucifiction were religious networks. It’s open season on Christians. I may not live to see it but I believe in this generation saying anything considered “Christian” will be outlawed.

This is outrageous and needs to be addressed. Jews have experienced this many times in history, and if our history has anything to teach, it is that when this type of bigotry exists, it must be addressed and stopped immediately. It is a very sad statement regarding what this nation has become under this “president.”

This is the equivalent of Obama SILENTLY sticking his middle finger at us yet again.

And he hopes he’s just as subtle as he’s always been (in other occassions).

Thank God for small favors Barry. Easter greetings from the Kenyan would have caused indigestion worse than that generated by eating Aunt Eula's deviled eggs.

“The world hates the name of Christ.. that is why it is silent on the murder of Christians by Islam..”

Wherever Muslims conquered, the history of those people was erased by slaughter at an unthinkable rate. Under the Crusades, they lived to wail about it for centuries. If they would drink like the Celts, Anglo-Saxons, Irish and Scots they would forgive and forget about being overrun.

Drudge seems to want to classify this as a “mistake” or “blunder” when it’s obvious to anyone it was done on purpose.

Someone should ask Mr. Obama if he believes that Jesus Christ was actually resurrected from the grave and walked among men.

This should tell you all you need to know:

BILLIONS FOR JIHAD!

Obamas 2009 Supplemental Appropriations for Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Pandemic Flu was revised and passed by the full committee.
It gives billions http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2009/05/1...
of U.S. taxpayer dollars to countries and entities that support Sharia law and/or harbor, hide and support those who want to destroy the U.S. and our allies.
Read the summary from David Obeys office that was quietly released last week with nary a word from any media.

$3.6 billion, matching the request, to expand and improve capabilities of the Afghan security forces

$400 million, as requested, to build the counterinsurgency capabilities of the Pakistani security forces

Afghanistan:$1.52 billion,$86 million above the request

West Bank and Gaza:$665 million in bilateral economic, humanitarian, and security assistance for the West Bank and Gaza

Jordan:$250 million,$250 million above the request, including $100 million for economic and $150 million for security assistance

Egypt:$360 million,$310 million above the request, including $50 million for economic assistance,$50 million for border security, and $260 million for security assistance

Pakistan:$1.9 billion,$591 million above the request

Iraq:$968 million,$336 million above the request

Oversight:$20 million,$13 million above the request, to expand oversight capacity of the State Department, USAID, and the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan to review programs in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq
Lebanon:$74 million

International Food Assistance:$500 million,$200 million above the request, for PL 480 international food assistance to alleviate suffering during the global economic crisis

Refugee Assistance:$343 million,$50 million above the request, including humanitarian assistance for Gaza. Funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency programs in the West Bank and Gaza is limited to $119 million (Note: Gaza = Hamas)

Disaster Assistance:$200 million to avert famines and provide life-saving assistance during natural disasters and for internally displaced people around the world, including Somalia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, the Middle East and South Asia

Peacekeeping:$837 million for United Nations
peacekeeping operations, including an expanded mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a new mission in Chad and the Central African Republic

Department of Justice:$17 million, matching the request, for counter-terrorism activities and to provide training and assistance for the Iraqi criminal justice system
Obama gives your tax dollars to rebuild Muslim mosques around the world
http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/... #

ACCORDING TO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WILL GIVE AWAY NEARLY $6 MILLION OF AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS TO RESTORE 63 HISTORIC AND CULTURAL SITES, INCLUDING ISLAMIC MOSQUES AND MINARETS, IN 55 NATIONS. See the State Department document here.
http://exchanges.state.gov/media/pdfs/office-...

And THAT’S just the tip of the iceberg.
THIS will blow your mind!!

http://gbk.eads.usaidallnet.gov/
They should have 2010 up, but they don’t. That’s where you’ll find Obama’s largesse towards Muslim countries really go off the charts.

The cost of U.S. military intervention in Libya has cost American taxpayers an estimated $896 million through July 31, the Pentagon said today.

The price tag includes the amounts for daily military operations, munitions used in the operation and humanitarian assistance for the Libyan people.

The U.S. has also promised $25 million in non-lethal aid to the Libyan Transitional National Council, half of which the Defense Department has already on MRE’s (military lingo for Meals, Ready to Eat).
