Obama's Special Thanksgiving Message to Muslims on the Hajj; Plus, Grandmother Obama to Make the Pilgrimage!

From the Los Angeles Times, "Obama Issues Special Message to World's Muslims on Hajj":

Statement by the President on Hajj and Eid-ul-Adha, as provided by the White House

Michelle and I would like to send our best wishes to all those performing Hajj this year, and to Muslims in America and around the world who are celebrating Eid-ul-Adha. The rituals of Hajj and Eid-ul-Adha both serve as reminders of the shared Abrahamic roots of three of the world’s major religions.

Read the whole thing at the link.

The president also noted that:

This year, I am pleased that the Department of Health and Human Services has partnered with the Saudi Health Ministry to prevent and limit the spread of H1N1 during Hajj.

Hey, that's great!

The U.S. is partnering with the Saudis to prevent the spread of virulent, highly lethal influenza scourge!

No doubt that will help stem, er, that other virulent, highly lethal scourge that's also killing untold numbers of Americans.

Added: From Atlas Shrugs, "Obama's Grandmama is in Mecca for "Hajj" Ceremony."

Gotta say a good word for family, you know, Muslim family, of course.

You're on a roll today, Mr. Douglas.

Another blazing article.

But really, Obama is NOT a Muslim, really!

God help us all. How much longer will we suffer this man-child?
