Of course, as we look back to the history books of our youth none of us remembers reading about the major influence Islam had in “building the fabric” of America. Maybe I'm wrong but can't say I even remember hearing the words Muslim or Islam. But this I do know. Islam has created nothing but death and destruction in every country where they have a presence. What a complete asinine, stupid, statement for Barry to make. You really have to question his mental state.
Barack Hussein Obama
Hussein meaning and name origin
Hussein \hu(s)-sein\ as a boy's name is pronounced hoo-SAYN. It is of Arabic origin, and the meaning of Hussein is "good; small handsome one". The name of a prominent person in Shiite Islam and a royal name in Jordan. American President Barack Hussein Obama.
(The fact he got elected with this name 7 years away from 911 still blows me away)
We just have to keep telling ourselves...he's not a Muslim...he's not a Muslim...he's not a Muslim...and sooner or later we'll believe it.
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.
A couple of examples:
The Freedom Tower was built because of Islam.
Islam built two prosthetic legs for Bostonian Jeff Bauman.
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.”
