Worthy Christian News » Obama Thanks Muslims for 'Building the Very Fabric of Our Nation'

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)– As Ramadan came to a close, President Obama thanked the Muslim community "for its many achievements and contributions" and "building the very fabric of our nation" and "strengthening the core of our democracy."

Full Press Release by the White House

Statement by the President on the Occasion of Eid-al-Fitr

As Muslims throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to them and their families. This last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease.

In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy. That is why we stand with people of all faiths, here at home and around the world, to protect and advance their rights to prosper, and we welcome their commitment to giving back to their communities.

On behalf of the Administration, we wish Muslims in the United States and around the world a blessed and joyous celebration. Eid Mubarak.

    Where were Muslims on Sept . 11th, 2001? Building up the fabric of our nation??!! How stupid can you be and still breathe!! If they weren’t flying planes into the World Trade Center , the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East. No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news network’s that day. Strangely, the very “moderate” Muslims who’s asses Mr. Obama bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo , Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11.To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day. Where is the so called peaceful and moderate Muslim voices to condemn the atrocities of their culture throughout the World. (massive killings of infidels, jews, non christians, priests, burning down of churches, etc)
    Tearing DOWN the very fabric of our nation is what they do, have done and will continue to do!!
    People, wake up! We have an imposter in the White House and his ONLY purpose is to destroy our beloved America from within! REMEMBER 911 PEOPLE!!!!

    There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
    One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
    One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. Ephesians 4:4-6.(KJV).

    Love and Peace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What contributions to the core of democracy is he talking about? Most terrorist attacks in the US in recent years have been by Muslims. Two attacks on the World Trade Centre, an attack in Boston, on 5th Ave. the tunnel , the Pentagon and several aborted or interrupted plans for terrorism.
    Cair WAS FUNDING ILLICIT ORGANIZATIONS and Obama praises them all. Many muslims are trying to be good Americans but many are not.
