We have seen that there is truly no outrageous lie Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) won't tell, and he lied yet again in a White House statement from July 27th in "honor" of the end of Islam's Ramadan holiday.
In part, the statement reads:
While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also 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.
In the United States, 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.
It's easy to wonder what the heck he meant by that statement, although taqiyya and contemptible revisionist history come to mind. The truth is that Islam played no part in either the founding of the United States or in its growth into the great, blessed nation it became by the 20th Century. In fact, a case could be made that Islam has contributed nothing positive, not just to the United States, but to the entire world, throughout the history of its dark, violent existence.
