Obama: “Islam has contributed to the character of our country”

This from the guy who conspired to sic the IRS on conservatives.

President Obama late Thursday celebrated Ramadan with a traditional dinner in the State Dining Room, saying that throughout the nation’s history, “Islam has contributed to the character of our country.” 

In remarks before the Iftar dinner, eaten by Muslims after sunset to end the day of fasting, Obama quoted from the Koran, according to a White House pool report. “As the Koran teaches, whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see its results.””Muslim Americans and their good works have helped to build our nation, and we’ve seen the results,” he added.

They helped build the nation? Really?
“Every day, Muslim Americans are helping to shape the way that we think and the way that we work and the way that we do business,” he said. “And that’s the spirit that we celebrate tonight — the dreamers, the creators whose ideas are pioneering new industries, creating new jobs and unleashing new opportunities for all of us.”
Thousands murdered on 9/11 were unavailable for comment.

    Muslims as I write are at war in various parts of the world with the following groups: Hindus (India), Buddhist (Thailand, Burma) Catholics (Philippians) Christians(Africa, USA, Asia), Native religions (South America, Africa,) Jews (everywhere) and not least themselves (Shia killing Sunni in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Egypt, Libya) Hummos fighting Al-quad all over the middle east. The Wer people in central China at war with the Communist govt. You cannot pick a place in the world where the Islamic faith is not at war with everyone that they come into contact with.

    If over 200 Nobel prizes to Jews since Israel was founded
    vs. 5 for Arabs in the same time frame (with one given to ole
    ‘Sleeps with the Sand Crabs’ – Arafat) is any indication of how much they contribute, the mooselimbs have a LOT of catching up to do.

    Just HOW did Islam contribute to the charecter of our country, Mr. Obama? I call bullshit. This country was built on Judeo-Christian principles as well as English common law…NOT a medieval religion that demands women be kept in defacto slavery.

    Well, they have contributed to us having to take our shoes off when going through airports.

    (Just like entering a mosque!)

    They have contributed to our language words and phrases like assassin, suicide vest, pressure cooker bombs, and acronyms like IED.

    They were the reason we established the Marine corps.

    So, they have contributed, just not positively.
