Default Muslim Ramadan or National Day of Prayer

I wonder if any here remember that when the National Day of Prayer came around the Obama Administration choose to ignore it, (so did Bill Clinton), which had some in this country concerned, being a country founded on Christian principles and all.
Well the supposed holy month of ramadan is here and guess what? Obama has choosen to celebrate this with the muslims here. He had invited a whole bunch of muslims to the White House to have a party. He also praised the religion as a great religion of justice and how far WE have come as a religion in this nation.

Anybody have any concerns about this type of behavior from our President?

Muslim and Comminist. What a pair
Looking more and more so UNAMERICAN

Ramadan Kareem
Posted by Rashad Hussain
As the new crescent moon ushers in Ramadan, the President extends his best wishes to Muslim communities in the United States and around the world.

Each Ramadan, the ninth month on the lunar calendar, Muslims fast daily from dawn to sunset for 29 or 30 days. Fasting is a tradition in many religious faiths and is meant to increase spirituality, discipline, thankfulness, and consciousness of God's mercy. Ramadan is also a time of giving and reaching out to those less fortunate, and this summer, American Muslims have joined their fellow citizens in serving communities across the country. Over the course of the month, we will highlight the perspectives of various faiths on fasting and profile faith-based organizations making real impacts in American cities and towns.

This month is also a time of renewal and this marks the first Ramadan since the President outlined his vision for a new beginning between America and the Muslim world. As a part of that new beginning, the President emphasizes that our relationship with Muslim communities cannot be based on political and security concerns alone. True partnerships also require cooperation in all areas – particularly those that can make a positive difference in peoples’ daily lives, including education, science and technology, health, and entrepreneurship - fields in which Muslim communities have helped play a pioneering role throughout history.

The President's message is part of an on-going dialogue with Muslim communities that began on inauguration day and has continued with his statement on Nowruz, during trips to Ankara and Cairo, and with interviews with media outlets such as Al Arabiya and Dawn TV.

As this dialogue continues and leads to concrete actions, the President extends his greetings on behalf of the American people. Ramadan Kareem.

There was no similar greeting on Easter.

You know I was just thinking that if this is a way for the pres to suck up to muslims, it will not work, they will still try to kill us. They think, how stupid are those dumb americans.
