Obama Thanks Muslims For ‘Building The Very Fabric of Our Nation’

By Cheryl K. Chumley-

President Obama and his wife sent out a joint statement to Muslims in America for the Eid-al-Fitr holiday, thanking them for their contributions in “building the fabric” of the country.

The statement, as posted on the White House website, reads in part: “As Muslims throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to them and their families. … [The holiday] celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict and disease.”

They didn't build any, but they are certainly responsible for the building of all 9/11 memorials.

Just reading the headline had me in a fury! The founding fathers would NOT be pleased!

Reading the transcript ( as far as I could stand to )and seeing that it relates to the holiday calms me...a tiny bit. At least enough to save the “puter” from a swim in the ocean! LOL

Mosques, so they have a place to go to plot their terrorist activities against us. It’s past time to round up all muslims and ship ‘em out including the #1 muzzie in the country

If I remember correctly, the first moslems came here around 1890s and settled in the mid west. They were no problem but did not build our nation as “O” claims.

I’ve been hearing little bammy is losing/has lost a lot of weight.

Last week he was making direct threats to several State Governors, Perry, Haley, etc.

Not one at a time but together as a group so it is not like it is bammy’s word against whomever.

His little phone conversation with PM Netanyahu turns out to be real, not a fabrication...

Now this.

Is he on drugs or just sprinting a little further “`round the bend?”

Both?”

In 1786, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson met with Arab diplomats from Tunisia, who were conducting terror raids and piracy against American ships (Barbary Pirates). Writing to John Jay, Thomas Jefferson described what he saw as the main issue and the reason why they were attacking Americans who had done them no harm. The following quote is from Thomas Jefferson....

“We took the liberty to make some inquiries concerning the Grounds of their pretensions to make war upon a Nation who had done them no Injury, and observed that we considered all mankind as our Friends who had done us no wrong, nor had given us any provocation. THE AMBASSADOR ANSWERED US THAT IT WAS FOUNDED ON THE LAWS OF THEIR PROPHET, THAT IT WAS WRITTEN IN THEIR KORAN, THAT ALL NATIONS WHO SHOULD NOT HAVE ACKNOWLEDGED THEIR AUTHORITY WERE SINNERS, THAT IT WAS THEIR RIGHT AND DUTY TO MAKE WAR UPON THEM WHEREVER THEY COULD BE FOUND, AND TO MAKE SLAVES OF ALL THEY COULD TAKE AS PRISONERS, AND THAT EVERY MUSSELMAN (MUSLIM) WHO SHOULD BE SLAIN IN BATTLE WAS SURE TO GO TO PARADISE”

So, tell Americans that “You didn’t build that” and then tell Muslims that they built America. Okaaayyyyyy.

How 'bout two things: mosques (which should all be under constant surveillance) and terrorist training camps. There's one right here in South Carolina.

Of course they didn’t.

But in his empty mind those that started successful business “didn’t build those”.

This is pretty insane.

Alexis de Tocqueville:

“I studied the Kuran a great deal ... I came away from that study with the conviction that by and large there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammed. As far as I can see, it is the principal cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world, and, though less absurd than the polytheism of old, its social and political tendencies are in my opinion infinitely more to be feared, and I therefore regard it as a form of decadence rather than a form of progress in relation to paganism itself.”

The only thing that comes to my mind is a recollection that I have of Roger Williams, founder of Rhode Island, speaking favorably of tolerance towards Moslems, and IIRC, citing some sterling Moslem individual as a model. I always thought, well yeah, one guy ...

Muslims NEVER BUILT A GODDAMN THING IN AMERICA!
Hell, most Americans didn't even know what a muslim was until they started murdering innocent athletes and other people in the late 60’s and early 70’s.
The only thing Americans knew about these devil/pedophile worshiping primitive savages was the Nation of Islam, a group of criminal racist thugs, which they still are today.

"Name one thing Moslems have built here."

For once Obama got it right. Indeed, it was Muslim slave traders that captured free Africans, and sold them to US slave owners, building the agricultural powerhouse that fed and clothed the nation.

Fitna

The universalism of Islam, in its all-embracing creed, is imposed on the be- lievers as a continuous process of warfare, psychological and political, if not strictly military. . . . The Jihad, accordingly, may be stated as a doctrine of a permanent state of war, not continuous fighting.” - Majid Khadduri; The Quranic Concept of War - Joseph C. Myers

TREASON ALERT!
