Posted on 07/20/2012 5:22:29 PM PDT by ColdOne
In a statement, President Obama commemorated the Muslim holiday of Ramadan calling it a time to "cherish family, friends, and neighbors, and to help those in need."
"On behalf of the American people, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to Muslim Americans and Muslims around the world at the start of Ramadan," Obama said.
Obama also took the opportunity to tie in the struggles of people across the Muslim world engaged in ongoing fighting related to the Arab spring uprisings that began in 2011.
"This year, Ramadan holds special meaning for those citizens in the Middle East and North Africa who are courageously achieving democracy and self-determination and for those who are still struggling to achieve their universal rights. The United States continues to stand with those who seek the chance to decide their own destiny, to live free from fear and violence, and to practice their faith freely. Here in the United States, Ramadan reminds us that Islam is part of the fabric of our Nation, and that from public service to business, from healthcare and science to the arts Muslim Americans help strengthen our country and enrich our lives," Obama said.

Sundown on Ramadan:
Now for the Enemy Occupied White House Kitchen to offer up some delicious honey maple barbeque puppy steaks!
I guess the Muslim Americans he blew to bits with drone strikes are done with their “contributions”.
Ramadamdam comes at a bad time for Hussein, no more daytime photo ops for restaurateur supporters for the next few weeks.
I marked it myself - right off the back porch this morning!
“This year, Ramadan holds special meaning for those citizens in the Middle East and North Africa who are courageously achieving democracy and self-determination and for those who are still struggling to achieve their universal rights.

Here in the United States, Ramadan reminds us that Islam is part of the fabric of our Nation, and that from public service to business, from healthcare and science to the arts Muslim Americans help strengthen our country and enrich our lives,” Obama said.
Obama makes my blood boil! Islam has never done anything for America - only TO America!
It can be said that with access to the resources that belong to US taxpayers and by trying to transfer them to Muslims all over the world as fast as he can, BHO is a top Muslim functionary.
Here in the United States, Ramadan reminds us that Islam is part of the fabric of our Nation..
Impeach the jerk.
He has nothing but disdain for the very foundations of this nation.. none of which is in any way Islamic.
But, of course....
Time for a pair of scissors.
“on behalf of the American People”??? Is there any doubt this impostor has to go?
well lest bash the Mormon some more to celebrat.
I am celebrating Ramadamadingdong with a giant rack of pork ribs on the grill. Stuff it, Obama.
What a douche. I lived in a Muslim country for 5 years and Ramadan was a time to kill animals with a knife. While the carcass was still warm and bleeding, they cut it in three pieces. Blood ran in the streets and the flies were horrible and spread disease. It stunk to high heaven for weeks.

Re Barack and restaurants:
Is it true that he observes the daytime fast? We’ve got 3 past years to look at. Does he forego meals and drink during the day? No photos of him stuffing his face either with fried junk or high-priced delicacies before sundown?
The Kenyan Usurper gives a shout out to his homies.
