New traditions are set in our White House as the almost-two-year President Barack Obama celebrates and accommodates Islam.
"On behalf of the American people, Michelle and I want to extend our best wishes to Muslims in America and around the world. Ramadan Kareem" Obama said today in a Statement on the Occasion of Ramadan.
It's no surprise to anyone our president is a Muslim sympathizer. After all, he was raised a muslim abroad as a child who now claims to be converted to Christianity. Praise God this is possible in America. Were he a Saudi citizen or one from any other sharia law muslim nation he would have been persecuted for denying Islam.
Twice in a row? President Obama celebrated Ramadan last year, this year's Ramadan Islamic fast would be his second as U.S. President. A score of 2-0. Two for Islam and zero for Christianity. With such a track record it is clear we are no longer observing the Christian National Day of Prayer, at least not just.
According to an AP report of September 2009: President Barack Obama praised American Muslims for enriching the nation's culture at a dinner to celebrate the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
"The contribution of Muslims to the United States are too long to catalog because Muslims are so interwoven into the fabric of our communities and our country," Obama said at the iftar, the dinner that breaks the holiday's daily fast.
The President joined Cabinet secretaries, members of the diplomatic corps and lawmakers to pay tribute to what he called "a great religion and its commitment to justice and progress."
Fast forward to 2010.
You not only know a man's faith by his words, you know him by his deeds. These events are part of a mounting evidence proving his love of Islamic faith. Has any president ever done this before? Here's what Obama said in a White House Press Release August 11, 2010:
"On behalf of the American people, Michelle and I want to extend our best wishes to Muslims in America and around the world. Ramadan Kareem.
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. This is a time when families gather, friends host iftars, and meals are shared. But Ramadan is also a time of intense devotion and reflection – a time when Muslims fast during the day and pray during the night; when Muslims provide support to others to advance opportunity and prosperity for people everywhere. For all of us must remember 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.
These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings. Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality. And here in the United States, Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country. And today, I want to extend my best wishes to the 1.5 billion Muslims around the world – and your families and friends – as you welcome the beginning of Ramadan.
I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.
May God’s peace be upon you."
Never before has a president who claims to be Christian so heavily promoted Islam to the world. If my president is a Christian he is a closet one. If he is a muslim he loves the teachings Allah gave to Mohammed and openly celebrates it.
