"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
Recently, we learned of the U.S. ambassador in Indonesia who made the decision — or someone did — to change the 4th of July celebration at the embassy to 4th of June. This was done to respect Ramadan. Needless to say, the ambassador has forgotten that an embassy is sovereign U.S. territory and all festivities easily could have been done after sunset — you know, fireworks, hot dogs, hamburgers and such.
And now our men and women serving in the Middle East have received a reminder about respecting Ramadan. As reported in the Weekly Standard:
A top commander in southwest Asia reminded U.S military personnel stationed in Muslim countries in the Middle East of the restrictions placed on them during Ramadan. According to a report by the U.S. Air Forces Central Command Public Affairs, Brig. Gen. John Quintas, 380th Air Expeditionary Wing commander in Southwest Asia, said that the U.S. is “committed to the concepts of tolerance, freedom and diversity.” But he added that soldiers should “become more informed and appreciative of the traditions and history of the people in this region of the world… Remember we are guests here and that the host nation is our shoulder-to-shoulder, brothers and sisters in arms, risking their lives for our common cause to defeat terrorism.” here
This is as absurdity as it is expected . . . from those who understand who Obama is. His entire regime from the beginning has been to “fundamentally transform” America. . . . making our militarily weaker and emotionally disheartened, is part of his radical plan. He’s proven he has no shame as well as no conscience over his incessant lying because he’s so driven by his Saul Alinksy’s anti-American, Marxist ideology.
I would never comply with Obama’s dictate to respect all things islam any more than I’d comply with his anti-Christian ideology, but I do feel for our military who should not have to tolerant such a disrespectful man. Obama “tolerance” and admiration for “diversity” are the Lefts ‘dog whistle’ for intolerance for all they hate. And that is a very long list complied of American traditions and values.
