Secretary of State Rex Tillerson just made a bold statement that will have many Muslims throwing a hissy fit or maybe just the PC multiculturalist leftists. The Trump admin is no longer pandering to Islam or currying favor with Muslims. They’re rejecting to embrace a religion that supports terrorism.
Tillerson has declined a request to host an event to mark Islam’s holy month of Ramadan, two U.S. officials said, apparently breaking with a bipartisan tradition in place with few exceptions for nearly 20 years, Reuters reported.
Since 1999, Republican and Democratic secretaries of state have nearly always hosted either an iftar dinner to break the day’s fast during Ramadan or a reception marking the Eid al-Fitr holiday at the end of the month, at the State Department.
Tillerson turned down a request from the State Department’s Office of Religion and Global Affairs to host an Eid al-Fitr reception as part of Ramadan celebrations, said two U.S. officials who declined to be identified because they were not authorized to speak publicly.
You remember when George W. Bush praised Islam as a religion of peace and how Obama did the same? Despite 9/11 and the multiple terror attacks that keep occurring by Muslims yelling “Alluhu Akbar” with THOUSANDS of innocent men, women and children losing their lives.
It seems the “religion of peace” phase is ending with President Trump.
While he was supposed to be hosting a Ramadan celebration at the White House, POTUS was in Europe standing with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas calling Muslim terrorists losers.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said this about Ramadan: “It is a month of reverence, generosity, and self-reflection. Most importantly, it is a cherished time for family and friends to gather and give charity to those who are less fortunate. This time reminds us all of the common values of harmony and empathy we hold dear,” he said.
What Rex said was a very respectable statement. His actions are what we LOVE though!
Instead of taking part in Ramadan, the Secretary of State joined the Rolling Thunder motorcycle event in D.C. to memorialize servicemen who were POW and MIA.
Rubbing elbows with American veterans from all different wars, this is what America needs right now. Leaders focused on America, its traditions, and nothing else.
We’ve been ignored for far too long.
