On the same day that four defenseless, unarmed Marines were killed by an Islamic terrorist, President and Michelle Obama issued a celebratory greeting to all Muslims worldwide. Though the timing of their announcement is uncertain, it appears the statement from the White House was issued just hours after the attack on two military facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
NewsMax brought us the happy greeting:
As authorities investigate a deadly attack in Tennessee as a potential case of terrorism, which occurring on the heels of several attacks across the globe in recent weeks, President Barack Obama issued a statement Thursday wishing Muslims a happy Ramadan.
The Islamic State (ISIS) has made several calls for its followers to launch terror attacks during Ramadan, and members of the U.S. military and law enforcement have also been singled out as potential targets.
A Tweet from an ISIS-linked Twitter account, meanwhile, seemed to give warning to Thursday’s attacks, mentioning Chattanooga. The time stamp of the Tweet was 10:34 a.m. Thursday; the shooting began at about 10:50 a.m.
It’s not clear what time Thursday the aforementioned White House statement was released, but Obama wished Muslims in the United States and across the world “joy” as Ramadan comes to a close.
“Michelle and I would like to extend our warmest wishes to Muslims in the United States and around the world celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr,” the statement reads. “As Muslims mark the end of the month, they are reminded that Ramadan is a time to reflect spiritually, build communally, and aid those in need. While Eid marks the end of Ramadan, it marks a new beginning for each individual — a reason to celebrate and express gratitude on this holiday.”
Obama also uses the opportunity to ask Americans to respect people of all faiths.
“As Muslim Americans celebrate Eid across America, the holiday is a reminder to every American of the importance of respecting those of all faiths and beliefs,” the statement reads. “This past year New York City Public Schools announced adding Eid to their official school calendars alongside Christmas, Hanukkah and other holidays — an acknowledgement of the great diversity and inclusiveness that adds to the richness of our nation.”
“The statement closes by saying, “Michelle and I hope today brings joy to all of your homes, both here in the U.S. and around the world. From my family to yours, Eid Mubarak!”
I guess that dirtbag coward Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez didn’t get the memo.
