Obama Thanks Muslims for ‘building the very fabric of our nation’


President Obama and his wife sent out a joint statement to Muslims in America for the Eid-al-Fitr holiday, thanking them for their contributions in “building the fabric” of the country.

The statement, as posted on the White House website, reads in part: “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. … [The holiday] 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.”

The Obamas then express appreciation to the Muslim community for helping forge America.

“In the United States,” the statement continued, “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. … On behalf of the Administration, we wish Muslims in the United States and around the world a blessed and joyous celebration. Eid Mubarak.”

The greeting “Eid Mubarak” means “blessed celebration.”




  1. that is obviously not homegirl ….. a cheap imitation at best

    the ignorant style points to somebody inside

  2. The best President ever as he uses reverse psychology to alienate Muslim’s from their minority Islamic extremists. Mind games not bullets when fighting an enemy that if martyrd dying fighting infidels brings the glory of heaven. Thank you Barack….thank you.

      • Mickey- to stop Islamic extremism, and eventual additional future attacks on our soil killing 3000 or more innocent American’s, we must continue to fight them on their turf while the negative impacts Islamic extremism has on mainstream Islam eat away at the core of Islam. The combatant tribes become Mainstream vs. Extremists and Mainstream Islam wins.
        I like the strategy but I have to admit to some serious political chumming with the “best President ever” description.

        • there is no such thing as two islams, in my non humble opinion.
          the mainstream will not denounce or fight the extremist. the lack of jobs and real education in the middle east, europe and other parts of the world, along with the allure of violence and power to young males will continue to feed the recruiting offices for islam.
          the islamic invasion of europe, the Islamic violence in the middle east and the invasion on our southern borders spells long term doom for an intelligent and orderly world.
