Ok Aussies… lets see how you deal with this one.
Ok Aussies… lets see how you deal with this one.
President Obama will host an iftar — the special evening meal observed during Ramadan — on Friday night in the White House dining room.
And when was the last time you had a bunch of Christians over??
Celebrations like iftar dinners “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,” Obama wrote in a statement Wednesday. Yes, and don’t forget to mention the Clock over in Mecca–Mecca time..we are moving to Mecca time when Mr. Prez?
“Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality … a reminder that Islam has always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country.” You Betcha!! More here from The Hill
Family Security Matters supplies the facts:
Sorry, Mr. Obama, but there were no Muslims among the passengers on the Mayflower or the settlers at Jamestown. Muslims were conspicuously absent from the ranks of George Washington’s Army of the Revolution and played no role in the creation of the American republic – – save for the fact that the new country’s first declaration of war was against the forces of Islam in the form of the Barbary pirates.1
Despite popular folklore, few Muslims numbered among the 12 million black Africans who were shipped to the New World from the 17th to 19th centuries. The Muslims, in fact, were not the slaves but the slave traders. Senegalese educator Amadou-Mahtar M’Bow has written that in 1587 a shipload of Moriscos (Spanish Moors) landed in a coastal area of South Carolina. The Moors, he contends, migrated to the mountains of eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina where they established colonies.
Many outspoken Christians expressed disappointment that President Obama would endorse the Muslim “Day of Prayer,” yet ignored the Christian “National Day of Prayer” in May. This nation was founded “under God,”
The Islamic “National Day of Prayer” emerges Friday, marking the end of the Muslim month-long holiday Ramadan. Thousands of Muslims are expected to march on Capitol Hill
Conflicts shroud this day, as many decry the actions and views of the organizers, including Hassen Abdellah, an attorney who represented Islamic terrorists for the 1993 and 2001 world trade center attacks. Imam Abdul Malik is another event organizer whose facebook page includes a video where he says “polygamy is an American tradition,” ( see http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2009/09/islam-on-capital-hill-.html). This is a quote from his wall: Democracy is not revelation, and democracy does not equal freedom, for in democracy you have apartheid, you have slavery, you have homosexuality, you have lesbianism, you have gambling, you have all of the voices that are against the spirit of truth; so no we don’t want to democratize Islam, we want to Islamize democracy (italics mine). That’s what we want.” Another video called “Anti-Zionism” is allegedly by this same man. The Washington Times reported some Islamic groups that would not take part in this day, including The Islamic Society of America (ISNA) and the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
The Obama administration has tapped Los Angeles Deputy Mayor Arif Alikhan for a top job at the federal Department of Homeland Security. KPCC’s Frank Stoltze says Alikhan immediately becomes one of the administration’s highest-profile Muslims.
While this action occurred some time ago, Bunkerville will be revisting the incredulous appointments that early on passed under the radar. With new concerns regarding the many czars, lets take time to review them all. Most chilling was Janet Napolitano’s high regard for this individual as quoted later in the article. One wonders where these candiates are coming from and who is vetting them.
Excerpt: Southern California Public Radio:
Frank Stoltze:Arif Alikhan downplays his Sunni Muslim roots
During his years in Los Angeles, Alikhan was responsible for derailing the Police Department’s plan to monitor activities within the Los Angeles Muslim community, where numerous radical mosques and madrassas existed, and where some of the 9/11 hijackers had received support from local residents.
Strongly anti-Israel, Alikhan has referred to the terrorist organization Hezbollah as a “liberation movement.” An affiliate of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Alikhan opposed President George W. Bush’s prosecution of the war on Islamic terror.
More from Atlas Shrugs:
Back in 2007, Alikhan was instrumental in removing the Muslim terror tracking plan in LA.
“It is over and not just put on the side,” said Chief Bratton in a meeting with the Muslim leadership of Southern California on Thursday, November 15th. The meeting was moderated by Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles, Arif Alikhan and attended by Deputy Chief Mike Downing.
Why Alikhan? DHS SecretaryJanet Napolitano noted Alikhan’s “broad and impressive array of experience in national security, emergency preparedness and counterterrorism.” I am not sure what she is talking about (neither is she, I am sure.)
How does an obscure bureaucrat a and devout Muslim come to the position of Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles – in charge of public safety for the city? And now Assistant Secretary to DHS?

Isn’t it great? While Hilliary was dancing the night away in Africa with our new best friends, and deciding if she needed to channel Bill, we now are up to adding our new best Islamic friends! So many come to mind. So enjoy Din Din .
Clinton had a most delicious dinner. (Of course Bill was sucking up to Barack elsewhere)!! Poor Hilliary!
Someone else who has been feasting lately is Clinton’s husband Bill, who ate lunch with President Obama while he was in New York yesterday to give a speech to the city’s financial sector. The two ate at Il Mulino, a restaurant featuring dishes from Italy’s Abruzzo region.
