Obama praises Islam as "Great Religion"

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama on Tuesday 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."

Attendees included Congress' two Muslim members -- Reps. Keith Ellison and Andre Carson as well as ambassadors from Islamic nations and Israel's ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren.

Obama shared the story of Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir, another invited guest, who broke a state record for most career points as a Massachusetts high school student.

"As an honor student, as an athlete on her way to Memphis, Bilqis is an inspiration not simply to Muslim girls -- she's an inspiration to all of us," he said.

Obama also noted the contributions of Muhammad Ali, who was not in attendance, though the president borrowed a quote from famous boxer, explaining religion.

"A few years ago," Obama said, "he explained this view -- and this is part of why he's The Greatest -- saying, 'Rivers, ponds, lakes and streams -- they all have different names, but they all contain water. Just as religions do -- they all contain truths."'

Ramadan, a monthlong period of prayer, reflection and sunrise-to-sunset fasts, began Aug. 22 in most of the Islamic world. It is believed that God began revealing the Quran to Muhammad during Ramadan, and the faithful are supposed to spend the month in religious reflection, prayer and remembrance of the poor.

White House dinners marking the holy month are nothing new. Former President George W. Bush held iftars during his eight years in office.

Obama has made a special effort since taking office to repair U.S. relations with the world's Muslims, including visits to Turkey and Cairo. In a June speech at the Egyptian capital, as well as in one to another important Muslim audience, in Turkey, Obama said: "America is not -- and never will be -- at war with Islam."

Obama also released a video message to Muslims before the start to Ramadan. In the video, he said Ramadan's rituals are a reminder of the principles Muslims and Christians have in common,including advancing justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.

FYI posting pics on this board within the next five minutes will ensure the maximum amount of blasphemy will reach the terrorists.

And I'm surprised you can type giving Obama a reach around. When we said he had muslim leanings we were called racists. When he proves it, it's cool.

When we called him Hussein we were called racists
When he did it, it was cool

Come on....enough double standards.

lulz. That has nothing to do with it. This country is home to hundreds maybe thousands of religions. If he had praised, say, Mormonism instead, would you still be making a big stink about it? Noooooope.

Was his campaign riddled with accusations of associations and ulterior motives with radical Mormons??? Were those associations that have been proven true, most notably of which is our radical "Mormon" green jobs czar? The radical "Mormon" stood behind the other radical "Mormons" on 9/12/01 when 19 radical "Mormons" ran a few planes into some shit.


Jesus christ you are stupid.

Reading comprehension is non existent with you.


That is the main pillar of the argument, you fucking retard.

He says he's a christian, and not a muslim. He slaps christianity in the face every time it is brought up. (guns and religion, among others) Yet whenever Islam is brought up, he is extolling the virtues and praises the faith like he's selling korans door to door.


For someone that believes so much in their own intellectual superiority, you might want to learn how to read sometime in the near future.

Radical Islam = Using Women & Children to blow up buildings, and want to kill those that do not practice Islam

Radical Mormons = Dresses that show a bit of ankle.

"going to" church and being a Christian are vastly different. It could be said that Larry Gene Ashlock went to Wedgewood Baptist Church, but he was neither a member nor a Christian.

Do I believe Obama made a show of attending a Christian church for political gains? I abolutely do.

Some religion of "peace" let me tell you. Ran more like a gang to me.

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.

Oh yes, a major accent. It's great.

Obama was talking about how he's a Christian yet has zero problem with bad mouthing it while talking about the great religion of Islam.

I say it again. Fuck islam

Probably. Mormonism has some goofy shit going down too. Just not as backwards as a bunch of pig fucking muslims.
