WASHINGTON (US): U.S. President Barack Obama has extended greetings to Muslims around the world on the occasion of Eid ul Azha, as millions of people performed the annual Hajj and followed the tradition of animal sacrifice set by Prophet Hazrat Ibrahim (AS).
Following is the text of President Obamas message as released by the White House;
Michelle and I extend our greetings for a happy Eid-ul-Azha to Muslims worldwide and wish safe travels to those performing Hajj. This year, nearly three million pilgrims from more than 160 countries-including the United States-have gathered in Mecca and neighboring sites to perform the Hajj rituals and stand together in prayer.
On Eid, Muslims around the world will commemorate Abrahams willingness to sacrifice his son, and distribute food to those less fortunate-a reminder of the shared values and the common roots of three of the worlds major religions.
On behalf of the American people, we extend our best wishes during this Hajj season Eid Mubarak and Hajj Mabrour.
I’ve been wondering where the hell my cat went...
I wonder if Pres. Bush did this?
He should. He is a communists black Muslim with all his formal training on the black and Muslim culture. He has the attitude of a Muslim and that is no doubt.
But he DIDN'T sacrifice his son.
Meanwhile Obama ignores the message of Easter and Christmas, when God sacrificed His Son for our sins.
Not with the appreciation of Islamists that Obama holds.
He’s as ‘in the closet’ as Barney Frank.
Zero is not only bowing down to Muhammaden beliefs, he is embracing a belief that Christians and Jews (e.g. the overwhelming majority of Americans) know to be totally false.
Sounds like Obama.
Noooooooo! You've got it all wrong; they don't deserve those finer things of life!
Maybe change out the "roast pork" for a bucket of pork fat, the "warm puppies" for angry Rots that only attack their owner, and "girls in bikinis" means mobidly obese women in bikinis.
That’s even better - all to the tune of some skull-numbing Rap music.
Isn’t that when three million muslims gather in Mecca and trample on each other?
Gee, and not a word on the dead and hostages (not even investigations), re: all the Christians slaughtered in Iraq (or S. Lebanon, Egypt, Indonesia, in Africa, etc.).
Yes. I think that’s normally a part of the ‘Day 2 Festivities”.
Gee did Obama sacrifice a goat at the White House in celebration?
Dont think so, but Bush did wish Christians a Happy Easter every year
I haven’t yet found a WH statement about Easter from obama, except to announce the Easter egg roll
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
