President Obama late Thursday celebrated Ramadan with a traditional dinner in the State Dining Room, saying that throughout the nation’s history, “Islam has contributed to the character of our country.”
In remarks before the Iftar dinner, eaten by Muslims after sunset to end the day of fasting, Obama quoted from the Koran, according to a White House pool report. “As the Koran teaches, whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see its results.”

“Muslim-Americans and their good works have helped to build our nation, and we’ve seen the results,” he added.

Obama, who has hosted five Iftar dinners, focused on entrepreneurship during much of his speech.

“Every day, Muslim-Americans are helping to shape the way that we think and the way that we work and the way that we do business,” he said. “And that’s the spirit that we celebrate tonight — the dreamers, the creators whose ideas are pioneering new industries, creating new jobs and unleashing new opportunities for all of us.”

    Finally, some “transparency” showing through! The emperor is wearing new clothes. For someone who says he’s a Christian, doesn’t look very “Christian” does he? When are people who actually voted for him (at least once) going to wake up and realize their mistake? You’ve been conned!!!

    Perhaps, instead of crowing about Obama as the first “Gay” president, they should have listed him as the first Muslim president.

    Guy says he is a believer in Christ but can’t celebrate a church holiday with sincerity or mention Jesus as the founding fathers did; but has no problem celebration Raaaaamadon with all it’s heretical practices. What white washed individual.

    Wondering where the network news is not on this. Not even Fox. Most people know in their hearts that he is muslim and socialist. I guess they just don’t care. What a bunch of lost souls we all are.

    i hope he was sincere about what he said.

      Of course he can’t list one single thing that Islam has actually done to enrich our lives. Just like he can’t list one positive thing HE’S done since taking office. What a B.S. merchant!

    The only things Issslaaam contributes to is the expansion of hell and the number of innocent people that are savagely raped and murdered; there is absolutely not redeeming quality to that demonic faith. Mr pres. you are a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

    A people or nation are blessed in proportion to their belief in the one true God. America became by far the richest, most powerful, technically superior, most free (and with freedom from war on its homeland) nation on earth, because America was by far the most CHRISTIAN nation on earth. Sadly, like we in the UK, the US is now trying to negate Christ from every area of society and government. The consequences, to the individual and to the nation, will be extremely dire. In the end we get the leaders we deserve, and there is undoubtedly worse than Obama to come.

    Every time Obama speaks he lies. Just like the antichrist.

    The only places on Earth where you can still have slaves are in Islamic led countries.

    I defy the president to name one thing Muslims have contributed to this country, other than 3,000 dead people, a hole in the side of the Pentagon and in a field in Shanksville, PA, 2 totally destroyed buildings in the form of the World Trade Centers, and 4 crashed planes. Oh, and putting an occupant in the White House.
