President Obama extended best wishes for Eid al-Adha, the Muslim festival of sacrifice. Oh yes, Mr. President, the hajj is "one of the world’s largest and most diverse gatherings," except for the banned and persecuted Chrsitians, Jews, Sikhs, HIndus and all non-Muslims forbidden from entering Mecca.
Yes, in the eyes of one so cunning and brilliant as our Mr.O, that is indeed diversity.
"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.
Read the rest of O's Eid statement here. And frankly, the comparison to Judaism (and Christianity) is an affront. There is nothing at all similar in Islamic teachings to Jewish teachings. Poached stories is all.
Muslims only - how diverse! (photo hat Tip Tom)
