God, help us all!

Wake up AMERICA! Between this man, MUSLIM TERRORISTS, China and Japan buying up the United State – we are doomed!
A friend of mine responded to the President’s speech in Red below, and I agree with everything she says and questions. See what you think!

Remarks by the President during Iftar Dinner

East Room

MY COMMENTS ABOUT WHAT HE SAID IN RED



8:35 P.M. EDT
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. Thank you so much. (Applause.) Everyone, please have a seat, have a seat.
Good evening, everyone, and welcome to the White House. Tonight is part of a rich tradition here at the White House of celebrating the holy days of many faiths and the diversity that define us as a nation. So these are quintessentially American celebrations — people of different faiths coming together, with humility before our maker, to reaffirm our obligations to one another, because no matter who we are, or how we pray, we’re all children of a loving God.
Now, this year, Ramadan is entirely in August. That means the days are long, the weather is hot, and you are hungry. (Laughter.) So I will be brief.
I want to welcome the members of the diplomatic corps who are here; the members of Congress, including two Muslim American members of Congress — Keith Ellison and Andre Carson; and leaders and officials from across my administration. Thank you all for being here. Please give them a big round of applause. (Applause.)
To the millions of Muslim Americans across the United States and more — the more than one billion Muslims around the world, Ramadan is a time of reflection and a time of devotion. It’s an occasion to join with family and friends in celebration of a faith known for its diversity and a commitment to justice and the dignity of all human beings. So to you and your families, Ramadan Kareem.
This evening reminds us of both the timeless teachings of a great religion and the enduring strengths of a great nation. Like so many faiths, Islam has always been part of our American family, and Muslim Americans have long contributed to the strength and character of our country, (HOW HAVE MUSLIMS CONTRIBUTED TO THE CHARACTER OF OUR COUNTRY? CHRISTIANS FOUNDED IT AND IN THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE MENTIONED OUR CREATOR – THE JUDEO CHRISTIAN GOD – NOT ALLAH. THERE WERE NO MUSLIMS SAILING TO THE NEW WORLD FROM EUROPE. THERE WERE NO MUSLIMS WRITING THE CONSTITUTION AND THIS HAS ALWAY BEEN A PARTICULARLY JUDEO CHRISTIAN COUNTRY FROM OUR FOUNDING). in all walks of life. This has been especially true over the past 10 years.(WHY, WHY HAS THIS BEEN ESPECIALLY TRUE OVER THE PAST TEN YEARS? WHAT HAPPENED TEN YEARS AGO? 19 MUSLIM HIJACKERS MURDERED NEARLY 3,000 INNOCENT AMERICANS IN THE NAME OF ‘ALLAH.’ SO BECAUSE OF THAT EVENT IT’S BEEN ESPECIALLY TRUE THAT MUSLIM’S CONTRIBUTED TO THE STRENGTH AND CHARACTER OF OUR COUNTRY???)
In one month, we will mark the 10th anniversary of those awful attacks that brought so much pain to our hearts. It will be a time to honor all those that we’ve lost, the families who carry on their legacy, the heroes who rushed to help that day and all who have served to keep us safe during a difficult decade. And tonight, it’s worth remembering that these Americans were of many faiths and backgrounds, including proud and patriotic Muslim Americans. (WHY? WHY BRING UP MUSLIM’S DYING DURING 9/11…WHY NO MENTION OF THE FACT THAT IT WAS RELIGIOUS MUSLIMS WHO WERE PRACTICING THEIR FAITH WHO CAUSED THE MASSIVE DEATH AND DESTRUCTION? IF THEY ARE TO BE BROUGHT UP AT ALL AT THE CLOSE OF RAMADAN, THIS MAJOR FACTOR SHOULD ALSO BE MENTIONED.)
Muslim Americans were innocent passengers on those planes, including a young married couple looking forward to the birth of their first child. (AND WHAT ABOUT ALL THE OTHERS WHO WERE NOT MUSLIMS WHO WERE KILLED BY THE MUSLIMS? MUSLIMS MURDER AND MAIM MUSLIMS ALL THE TIME IN COUNTRIES WHERE SHARIAH LAW IS THE LAW OF THE LAND. MUSLIMS KILLING MUSLIMS IS MET WITH A YAWN BY MOST OF THE MEDIA AND AMERICANS WHO ERRONEOUSLY BELIEVE THAT WE SHOULD NOT JUDGE OTHER CULTURES.) They were workers in the Twin Towers — Americans by birth and Americans by choice, immigrants who crossed the oceans to give their children a better life. They were cooks and waiters, but also analysts and executives. (BOO HOO HOO…I’M GOING TO CRY FOR ALL THE POOR SUFFERING MUSLIMS WHO WERE KILLED OR MAIMED ON 9/11 – BY THE GANG OF 19 ISLAMIC TERRORISTS.)
There, in the towers where they worked, they came together for daily prayers and meals at Iftar. (VIOLINS PLEASE…) They were looking to the future — getting married, sending their kids to college, enjoying a well-deserved retirement. And they were taken from us much too soon. (YES – AND BY WHOM??????!!!!) And today, they live on in the love of their families and a nation that will never forget. (WHAT IS HE SAYING? THEY LIVE ON IN THE LOVE OF THEIR FAMILIES AND A NATION THAT WILL NEVER FORGET WHAT??? THEIR SACRIFICES?? THEIR LOSSES??? ARE WE SUPPOSED TO BE – AS A NATION- HONORING AND NOT FORGETTING THE POOR MUSLIM LOSSES AT 9/11? WHAT ABOUT THE 19 MUSLIM HIGJACKERS???? I’M SURE AS A NATION WE WON’T FORGET THEIR SACRIFICE IN THE NAME OF ALLAH?) And tonight, we’re deeply humbled to be joined by some of these 9/11 families, and I would ask them to stand and be recognized, please. (Applause.)
Muslim Americans were first responders — the former police cadet who raced to the scene to help and then was lost when the towers collapsed around him; the EMTs who evacuated so many to safety; the nurse who tended to so many victims; the naval officer at the Pentagon who rushed into the flames and pulled the injured to safety. On this 10th anniversary, we honor these men and women for what they are — American heroes. (WOW I DIDN’T REALIZE THAT WE SHOULD PAY HOMAGE TO THOSE MUSLIMS WHO SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES FOR US…TRUE AMERICAN HEROES…BUT WAS IT BECAUSE THEY WERE MUSLIM? I’M NOT GETTING WHY THEY ARE SIGNALED OUT. IS HE GOING TO GIVE OTHER SPEECHES NAMING THE CHRISTIAN AND JEWISH AND HINDU AND BHUDDHIST AND OTHER RELIGIONS WHO WERE REPRESENTED WHO ARE “AMERICAN HEROES.” OR ARE ONLY MUSLIM ONES IMPORTANT ENOUGH TO BE SINGLED OUT FOR PRAISE?..IS HE GOING TO ANNOUNCE IN THE NEAR FUTURE AS THE ANNIVERSARY OF 9/11 APPROACHES THAT HE’S GIVING SPEECHES TO HONOR THOSE OF EACH INDIVIDUAL RELIGION WHO WAS HEROIC ON 9/11? OR ARE ONLY MUSLIMS IMPORTANT??)
Nor let us forget that every day for these past 10 years Muslim Americans have helped to protect our communities as police and firefighters, including some who join us tonight. Across our federal government, they keep our homeland secure, they guide our intelligence and counterterrorism efforts (COUNTER TERRORISM EFFORTS??? WHO ARE THESE TERRORISTS THAT WE NEED TO PROTECT OURSELVES AGAINST? JEWS? CHRISTIANS? HINDUS?, ETC…?? ONLY THE MUSLIM TERRORISTS HAVE DISRUPTED OUR LIVES…TRYING TO BLOW UP FUEL LINES; SYNAGOGUES…CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING CEREMONIES…TIMES SQUARE…AIRPLANES…AND ATTACKING JEWISH CHILDREN’S CENTERS AND MILITARY RECRUITERS AND EL AL AIRLINE PERSONAL, ETC., ETC., AND IT’S BECAUSE OF THEM THAT WE HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE STUPID TSA RULES AND TAKE OFF OUR SHOES, AND BE FELT UP AND BE NAKED X-RAYED, AND NOT ALLOWED TO CARRY ON A BOTTLE OF WATER AND NOT BE ALLOWED TO BRING ANY LOTIONS OR CREAMS OR LIQUIDS OR SCISSORS OR NAIL FILES OR ANYTHING WE USED TO BE ABLE TO DO TO LEAD NORMAL, FREE LIVES…ALL BECAUSE OF THE THREAT FROM MUSLIM TERRORISTS…THANKS VERY MUCH MUSLIMS!) and they uphold the civil rights and civil liberties of all Americans. So make no mistake, Muslim Americans help to keep us safe. (OH RIGHT…EXCEPT FOR THE ONES WHO WANT TO DESTROY US!!! AND OUR WAY OF LIFE…EXCEPT FOR THOSE, THEY ARE WONDERFUL AT KEEPING US SAFE.)
We see this in the brave service of our men and women in uniform, including thousands of Muslim Americans. In a time of war, they volunteered, knowing they could be sent into harm’s way. (YES, THEY VOLUNTEERED AND THEN WE HAD MAJOR NIDAL HASSAN…THAT WAS A GOOD MUSLIM VOLUNTEER …AND THE RECENT MUSLIM WHO WAS PLANNING ANOTHER ATTACK ON AN ARMY BASE…EXCEPT FOR THEM AND PROBABLY OTHERS LIKE THEM, THEY CERTAINLY ARE BRAVE…SOLDIERS FOR ALLAH!) Our troops come from every corner of our country, with different backgrounds and different beliefs. But every day they come together and succeed together, as one American team. (THAT ONE AMERICAN TEAM HAS NOT BEEN THIS DIVIDED A COUNTRY SINCE THE CIVIL WAR.)
During the 10 hard years of war, our troops have served with excellence and with honor. Some have made the ultimate sacrifice, among them Army Specialist Kareem Khan. Galvanized by 9/11 to serve his country, he gave his life in Iraq and now rests with his fellow heroes at Arlington. And we thank Kareem’s mother, Elsheba, for being here again tonight. (Applause.) Like Kareem, this generation has earned its place in history, and I would ask all of our service members here tonight — members of the 9/11 Generation — to stand and accept the thanks of our fellow Americans. (Applause.) (YES, LET’S THANK THE MUSLIMS FOR WHAT THEY HAVE GIVEN TO OUR COUNTRY…THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE GLORIOUS MUSLIM CONTRIBUTIONS TO KEEPING US SO SAFE. THEY AMONG ALL OTHERS ARE THE BRAVE, ONES WHO WE MUST THANK AT A SPECIAL WHITE HOUSE CEREMONY.)
This year and every year, we must ask ourselves: How do we honor these patriots — those who died and those who served? (WHICH PATRIOTS ARE WE SUPPOSED TO ASK OURSELVES HOW TO HONOR? ONLY THE MUSLIM ONES APPARENTLY. DOES THAT MEAN THAT ONL MUSLIM ONES ARE PATRIOTS? …JUST ASKING..) In this season of remembrance, the answer is the same as it was 10 Septembers ago. We must be the America they lived for and the America they died for, the America they sacrificed for. (WTF????? AND HOW IS THAT AMERICA SUPPOSED TO LOOK? BURKHA WEARING WOMEN? BEARDED, DRESS WEARING MEN? AN AMERICA THAT WON’T PROSECUTE BLACK ON WHITE CRIME LIKE THE NEW BLACK PANTHER VOTER INTIMIDATION CASE? IS THAT THE AMERICA WE MUST HONOR NOW? )
An America that doesn’t simply tolerate people of different backgrounds and beliefs, but an America where we are enriched by our diversity. (WHAT HAPPENED TO ‘ONE NATION UNDER GOD’? WHAT HAPPENED TO ‘E PLURIBUS UNUM – FROM MANY – ONE? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE MELTING POT? WHAT HAPPENED TO PEOPLE COMING TO AMERICA WHO WANT TO EMBRACE THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE AND BECOME AMERICANS, NOT HYPHENATED AMERICANS?) An America where we treat one another with respect and with dignity,(UNLESS YOU ARE A MUSLIM, THEN YOU GET TO BE TREATED AS SPECIAL CLASS CITIZENS…THERE WAS NO DIGNITY FOR AMBASSADOR MICHAEL OREN WHEN HE TRIED TO SPEAK AT UCI. THE MUSLIMS THERE DIDN’T SEEM TO ‘GET’ THE CONCEPT OF TREATING OTHERS WITH RESPECT AND DIGNITY…WHAT ABOUT THE MUSLIM SPEAKERS AT UCI AND OTHER CAMPUSES WHO STAND IN THE QUADS AT SCHOOLS AND PREACH ABOUT OVERTHROWING AMERICA AND ISRAEL AND DECIMATING THE JEWS? WHAT ABOUT ISRAEL APARTHEID WEEK ON CAMPUSES THROUGHOUT AMERICA EVERY YEAR, THAT’S REALLY SHOWING RESPECT AND DIGNITY ISN’T IT…NOT!) remembering that here in the United States there is no “them” or “us;” it’s just us. (TELL THAT TO CAIR, TELL THAT TO THE OTHER ISLAMIC ORGANIZATIONS AND PREACHERS WHO BELIEVE AMERICA SHOULD BE AN ISLAMIC NATION) An America where our fundamental freedoms and inalienable rights are not simply preserved, but continually renewed and refreshed (MAN CANNOT RENEW AND REFRESH THE INALIENABLE RIGHTS BECAUSE THEY DO NOT COME FROM MAN, THEY COME FROM GOD AND THEY INCLUDE, LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. WHAT MAN GIVES HE CAN TAKE AWAY BUT GOD’S RIGHTS ARE FOREVER) — among them the right of every person to worship as they choose. An America that stands up for dignity and the rights of people around the world,(HUH? I THOUGHT HE DIDN’T WANT TO MEDDLE IN OTHER COUNTRIE’S BUSINESS…OH THAT’S RIGHT IT’S IRAN’S BUSINESS HE WON’T MEDDLE IN – ISRAEL’S, EGYPTS, LYBIA’S, ETC..THOSE ARE FAIR GAME TO MEDDLE IN.) whether a young person demanding his or her freedom in the Middle East (HUH? IS THIS A CODE WORD FOR THE “PALESTINIANS?” OR THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD IN EGYPT AND OTHER ISLAMIC COUNTRIES?) or North Africa, or a hungry child in the Horn of Africa, where we are working to save lives.
Put simply, we must be the America that goes forward as one family, (WTF???? WE ARE MORE DIVIDED SINCE BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA TOOK OFFICE THAN ANY OTHER TIME…ONE FAMILY? ONE FAMILY OF DIVIDED AND SEPARATED PEOPLE.) like generations before us, pulling together in times of trial, staying true to our core values (WHAT EXACTLY ARE THE ‘CORE’ VALUES THAT THIS PRESIDENT BELIEVES IN – I’D LIKE TO KNOW) and emerging even stronger. This is who we are and this is who we must always be.
Tonight, as we near a solemn anniversary, I cannot imagine a more fitting wish for our nation. So God bless you all and God bless the United States of America. Thank you. (Applause.)
