Happy Ramadan! July 17, 2013 by John Myers Happy Ramadan! PHOTOS.COM “Strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is their destination.” –Quran 9:73 WASHINGTON, D.C., May 1, 1960: President Dwight D. Eisenhower announced Mayday greetings to communists around the world. The President stated: “On this sacred day for communists, Mamie and I want to extend our best wishes. For the world’s 1.5 billion communists I want them to know they play a significant part in shaping the world’s future, that May Day is a time for thoughtful reflection.” WASHINGTON, D.C., July 8, 2013: President Barack Obama announced Happy Ramadan to the world, saying: “With the start of the sacred month of Ramadan, Michelle and I extend our best wishes to Muslim communities here in the United States and around the world. For the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims, Ramadan is a time for thoughtful reflection, fasting and devotion. It is also an opportunity for family and friends to come together and celebrate the principles that bind people of different faiths — a commitment to peace, justice, equality and compassion towards our fellow human beings. These bonds are far stronger than the differences that too often drive us apart.” Obama concluded: “I wish Muslims across America and around the world a month blessed with the joys of family, peace and understanding. Ramadan Kareem.” The President didn’t mention ritual rape, mass murder and the killing of infidels; you know; folks like us. As for Ramadan Kareem, that sounds like the name of an NBA player who recently converted to Islam. When I first read the President’s message, I didn’t have a clue what Kareem meant; but it bothered me that he did. It also bothers me that Obama just doesn’t get it about Islam, or does he? He is displaying either a total ignorance about the War on Terror (here is a hint, Mr. President: Islam is involved) or, worse, he has sympathetic views toward Islam, its goals and the murderous means it will use to achieve them. The dateline at the top is my ridiculous invention written for effect. The truth is that on May 1, 1960, Eisenhower gave his personal approval for Francis Gary Powers’ infamous U-2 flight across the Soviet Union. After Powers was shot down and with proof in hand, Nikita Khrushchev, the First Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, was furious. He felt Ike was openly taunting the Soviet Union during the most important communist day of the year. What did Obama do? He told Muslims of every ilk to enjoy this joyous holiday and ended up sounding like the pope on Easter. Of course, Obama apologists will argue that 99 percent of Islamic believers hold no harm in their hearts against the United States. That number is not accurate, as I will show in a moment; but let’s be generous for the time being and say OK to the Obamaites. Even if we go along with the 1 percent number, that means 1.5 million Muslims in the world want to see grievous harm done to the United States. I am sorry that so many American liberals don’t realize that they are on the same hit list. For the President or any reasonable person to declare that somehow Islam is not at the epicenter of terrorism is to argue that Spain wasn’t involved in the Spanish Inquisition. Are there elements in Islam that are parallel to Communism 50 years ago? You bet, argues Mark Steyn in his book America Alone: The End Of The World As We Know It. According to Steyn, the goal of millions of Muslims across the world is the takeover of Western cultures; but our politicians are so politically correct that that they are either apologists or appeasers to Islam. “Nobody wants to be unpleasant, or judgmental, do they? What was it they said in the Cold War? Better dead than Red. We’re not like that anymore. Better screwed than rude,” wrote Steyn adding: … [T]he political class prostrates itself before an insatiable force that barely acknowledges the latest surrender before moving on to the next invented grievance. Indeed, a formal enemy is all but superfluous to requirements. Bomb us, and we agonize over the “root causes.” Decapitate us, and our politicians rush to the nearest mosque to declare that “Islam is a religion of peace.” Issue blood-curdling calls at Friday prayers to kill all the Jews and infidels, and we fret that it may cause a backlash against Muslims. Behead sodomites and mutilate female genitalia, and gay groups and feminist groups can’t wait to march alongside you… Continue Reading........................................
