Skip to comments.At Ramadan, Obama Hails Islam As 'Part Of America'
Posted on 08/11/2010 6:54:26 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
As opinion polls registered strong opposition to plans for an Islamic center near Ground Zero, President Obama on Wednesday issued a statement marking the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, calling the holiday "a reminder that Islam has always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country."
Obama said Ramadan is a time "when Muslims around the world reflect upon the wisdom and guidance that comes with faith, and the responsibility that human beings have to one another, and to God."
He noted Ramadan's call for prayer and sacrifice and almsgiving, and said that along with the gatherings of family and friends at sundown for iftar dinners to break the daily fast, they are reminders "that the world we want to build and the changes that we want to make must begin in our own hearts, and our own communities."

But even in these tough times, theres still so much to celebrate this Christmas. A message of peace and brotherhood that continues to inspire more than 2,000 after Jesus birth.[snip]
Is that an acutal quote? More than 2000 WHAT after Jesus' birth? Jesus inspires more than 2000? Just admit it, 0bama, you're a muslim.
Are you referring to the Barbary Coast pirats? If so, you need to go a little further back. John Paul Jones, Serapis, Bon Homme Richard.
Wasn’t it achmed abdul revere that rode his camel through the night warning of the british infidels? Or maybe it was Alexander graham shabazz who invented the telephone....yeah they have a long history in this country gotta love those freedom loving moose! /sarcasm
See the Naval Act of 1794.
His “Muslim Faith” is in full display.
Then why is John Paul Jones called the father of the U.S. Navy. Seems that he would have been the founder of the Contintal Navy. But we can agree to disagree.
Never heard him called that. He was a major force in the Continental Navy which was the forerunner of the US Navy which was formed by the Naval Act of 1794 to fight the Barbary pirates.
Suffice it to say without John Paul Jones and others like him there would not be an America today.
I thought the ‘Father of the Navy’ was Commodore Barry?
John Barry (March 25, 1745 September 13, 1803) was an officer in the Continental Navy during the American Revolutionary War and later in the United States Navy. He is often credited as “The Father of the American Navy”. Barry was born in Tacumshane, County Wexford, Ireland and appointed a Captain in the Continental Navy on December 7, 1775.
They've got us by the balls. That's why Obama doesn't care about his poll numbers and vacations more than he works.
Recall, of course, the bombing of the WTT in '93. Nice how our presidents reward the Muslim community. /s
I have NO idea, which president was the first to send Muslims "Ramadan" greetings in a such public fashion as we've seen since they've attacked us.
All month long, in fact!
“I have NO idea, which president was the first to send Muslims “Ramadan” greetings in a such public fashion as we’ve seen since they’ve attacked us.”
Except for 2001, Bush sent greetings each year of his presidency. Here are a few archived pages from 2002
For Immediate Release

President’s Greeting for Ramadan
Oh yeah, he most certainly is. One of the reasons he has a 24/7 Marine Honor guard in front of his tomb at Anapolis. He was orignally buried in France (Gag), then he was disinterred and brought back for burial at the Naval Academy. H was also an Admiral in the Navy of Catherine the Great.
I mean no disrespect to John Paul Jones, I am just trying to be historically accurate.
