Ya know Obungler praises muslim holidays but "forgets" Easter, Thanksgiving and probably Christmas. He goes out of the way to praise islam and refuses to acknowledge Christianity? I know that we are supposed to be a secular society and I have no problem with that, the idea of having a state sanctioned religion is one of the big reasons why we had the pilgrims come to America to escape the persecution from the church of England. Now with Obungler, we have a state sanctioned religion...and that religion is islam.

Michelle and I extend our greetings for a happy Eid al-Adha to Muslims worldwide and congratulate those performing Hajj.
Thousands of Muslim Americans are among those who have joined one of the world’s largest and most diverse gatherings in making the pilgrimage to Mecca and nearby sites.
As Muslims celebrate this Eid, they will also commemorate Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son by distributing food to those less fortunate around the world. They join the United States and the international community in relief efforts to assist those struggling to survive in the Horn of Africa and those recovering from the devastating earthquake in Turkey.
The Eid and Hajj rituals are a reminder of the shared roots of the world’s Abrahamic faiths and the powerful role that faith plays in motivating communities to serve and stand with those in need. On behalf of the American people, we extend our best wishes during this Hajj season.
