Obama commemorates start of Ramadan By Meghashyam Mali - 07/21/12 01:20 PM ET

President Obama on Friday marked the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan as a "time to cherish family, friends and neighbors, and to help those in need.”

In a statement, the president said he and the first lady extended their “warmest wishes to Muslim Americans and Muslims around the world."

Obama also paid tribute to the Arab Spring, the wave of populist pro-democratic uprising in the region. "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," he said. "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."

The president said the religious holiday was "reminder to people of all faiths of our common humanity and the commitment to justice, equality, and compassion shared by all great faiths."

The White House will host an iftar dinner, the traditional evening meal observed during Ramadan. Obama has participated in similar gatherings every year of his presidency.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif,) also commemorated the holiday in a statement Friday.

"For American Muslims and Muslims around the world, the holy month of Ramadan is a time of family, and reflection; fasting, prayer, and discipline; sacrifice and spirituality," said Pelosi. "It is also an opportunity for all Americans to celebrate the tradition of pluralism, tolerance, diversity, and religious freedom embedded in the very fabric of our history."

Yet Obama has not said anything about Easter.

Or gone to Easter mass.

Until THIS year. This year, even he saw that it would be a good
political move.

But those other years, no citation for Easter.

“time to cherish family, friends and neighbors, and to help those in need.”
How many innocent lives will be taken during this Holy Month in the name of Allah? Just asking.

I have never read a story about a Muslim helping anyone in need. Surely there must be one.

Well bless his little Kenyon, black heart. Even his preacher, Rev. Wright, says the Muslim only acts Christian for the votes.

Obama Sez:

"You all think you know so much?
Well, I wasn't bowing to Islam, I was grovelling. So there, Mr. and Mrs. Know-It-All."

moslems declared holy war on America twice, in 1996 and 1998. We are still at war with them.

Has the fraud in chief ever hosted an Easter Sunday dinner at the Whitey House? What about a Good Friday dinner? A Christmas Dinner?

And 1993 and 2001, of course. I found later DVD copies of this at Wal-Mart for $5.

Obama issues celebratory Ramadan statement. Almost as touching as his Easter proclamation. Oh wait...

Good point.
Why don’t the Saudis help Egypt out instead of Uncle Sam all the time ?

From what planet does Obama hail? Certainly he is not speaking of the planet earth where Islam shares virtually nothing with the "great religions."

"This year, Ramadan holds special meaning for those citizens in the Middle East and North Africa who are courageously achieving [the enslavement of their perceived enemies and depriving every non-muslim and woman any semblance of] universal rights," he said. "The United States continues to stand with those who seek the chance to decide their own destiny, [to subjugate or put to the sword all who defy them, to enthrall women as cattle and subject all infidels to Dhimitude or death,] and to practice their faith freely [until the entire world is under rule of the great Umah, under the supreme caliphate.]"

Thanks BHO. Thanks for nothing..
