This is, apparently, an annual commemoration of Abraham’s (almost) sacrifice of
Isaac Ishmael (what’s wrong with some selective editing of scripture; are you an Islamophobe?).
The proclamation begins:
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.(emphasis added)
Now, Barry, we all know how much some Muslims love to shed the blood of others in the name of their prophet, but is a “Festival of Sacrifice” really something to be “happy” about?
But wait, there’s more. The “diverse” gatherings certainly don’t refer to anyone’s faith. Christians, Jews, Buddhists or Hindus? Sorry, not allowed in Mecca. Claiming a religiously pure gathering as “diverse” is utter and offensive nonsense.
Worst of all? While Barry, the former Muslim, will not let a Muslim holiday go unproclaimed, this year there was no proclamation for Easter. But why would he; Christianity is the shared faith of the vast majority of Americans.
I would call this stark disparity simply outrageous.
