Barack Obama, John Kerry greets Muslims on Ramadan
http://economictimes.indiatimes.com ^ | june 28, 2014

US President Barack Obama has greeted Muslims across the world on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan, describing it as the time for self-reflection and devotion through prayer and fasting.

"A time for self-reflection and devotion through prayer and fasting, Ramadan is also an occasion when Muslims around the world reaffirm their commitment to helping the less fortunate, including those struggling because of economic hardship and inequality," Obama said in a statement yesterday.

Lauding the role of Muslim organisations in America for their efforts at social empowerment, Obama said: "Here in the US, we are grateful to the many Muslim American organizations, individuals, and businesses that are devoted to creating opportunity for all by working to reduce income inequality and poverty, not only through their charitable efforts, but also through their initiatives to empower students, workers and families with the education, skills and health care they deserve.

Ramadan, he added, also reminds us of our shared responsibility to treat others as we wish to be treated ourselves and the basic principles that bind people of different faiths together: a yearning for peace, justice and equality.

"At a moment when too many people around the world continue to suffer from senseless conflict and violence, this sacred time reminds us of our common obligations to pursue justice and peace and to uphold the dignity of every human being," Obama said.

They may miss Christmas, Easter and Memorial Day, but you can bet the farm they will be there for Ramadan.

Did they pray to Allah (Satan) while they were there?

Lauding the role of Muslim organisations in America

It's a shame that Christian organizations have never done anything in America. I mean, if they had, I'm sure he'd mention it at some point. [/s]

How in the sam hill does he mention “inequality” in a Ramadan message???? Is Islam really concerned about liberal issues such as income inequality as espoused by American politicos??? Really????

Well FRiends, it looks like it is once again time for my standard to Islam:

Islam is a degenerate, psychotic cult created by a murderous child molester and currently supported and maintained by self-flagellating, illiterate, effeminate cowards.

Figures. The Ft. Hood shooting were deemed terrorism workplace violence and Obama administration pulls references to Islam from terror training materials.

What the heck is “social empowerment,” anyway? Like taking over the country?

Ramadan ... a time to consider “the dignity of every human being ... “
Excepting non-orthodox Sunni. And excepting women and infidels. And Shiites and Ba’athists. Oh, and apostates. And American conservative terrorists. And ...

So John Kerry is celebrating Ramadan. Apparently, he’s carrying on a family tradition.

John Kerry’s Jewish grandfather changed his name from Cohn to that of a county in Ireland and converted to Christianity, which allowed John Kerry to march through Boston on St. Patrick’s Days like a true son of the Ould Sod, win numerous Senate races, and rise to become Secretary of State, where he spent most of his time bashing Israel, the homeland of his brothers and sisters of Jewish heritage while sending billions of dollars to Israel’s mortal enemy, Hamas.

So, now John Kerry seems to be preparing for the establishment of the Caliphate. First, a little public dabbling in Ramadan, while avoiding the Church at all costs.

Then, as Muslims continue to gain more power, we should see him converting to Islam, while changing his name to Mohammed, carrying on the Grandpa Cohn tradition. Eventually, one of his heirs will likely become an Imam and use his power to attack Christian countries like America as well as Israel, and the circle of Cohn/Kerry/Mohammed ethnic/religious deception and destruction will be complete.

Obama, read the Koran! Nothing there that equates non- muslims (Jew & Christians) to muslims, let alone an atheist. Stop the excuse of using “human-being” preached in the Koran!

“On behalf of the American people, Michelle and I extend our best wishes to Muslim communities here in the United States and around the world on the beginning of the blessed month of Ramadan.” Obama stated in a statement.

Obama sure as hell doesn’t speak for this “American people”. Notice how he says “blessed month”.

I am consumed with hate for this man like I have never been before.

FUBO and your entire administration and your progeny.
