President Barack Obama wished Muslims well for the feast of Eid al-Fitr marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan. …

Wishing Muslims across the United States and around the world "Eid mubarak" (happy holiday), Obama said the celebrations in America speak to "the truth that communities of faith—including Muslim Americans—enrich our national life, strengthen our democracy and uphold our freedoms, including the freedom of religion. That is why we stand with people of all faiths, in the United States and around the world, in protecting and advancing this universal human right." …

Sounds to me he is admitting to be a Muslin first before even any other religion.

Wonder if he had any words to say about the American soldiers who died this month trying to conduct his brilliant foreign policy.

Never!! I’d like to know just what the Muslims have contributed to this country - other than 9/11. Sure, it was the radicals, but, to my knowledge, not one Muslim has spoken out against it. If I’m wrong on this, then someone please correct me.

Did he forget to wish Christians “Merry Christmas”?
How about “Happy Hanukkah” to Jews?
Never mind forgot “Happy Diwali” to 1200 million Hindu’s.

But he never forgets Muslims....check this video and you will understand.

Does this mean Muslims can now fornicate while the happy sun shines upon them?

enrich our national life, strengthen our democracy and uphold our freedoms, including the freedom of religion.
Killing your own children, abusing your wife mentally and physically and then murdering her..........yea! sounds enriching to me. Religion? try cult! This will be a time for all time. There will certainly be many books, articles and commentary for years to come on how the mental institution came to control DC

That would be a great statement, if it were true.

You can question the sincerity of many of the statements, but you are wrong that “not one Muslim has spoken out about it.”. A quick Google search turns up this site, where some (likely lib) professor listed a whole bunch of Muslim condemnations of 9/11 and terrorism in general:

Talking about Islam and freedom of religion in the same breath. What a joke!
