    Finally! It was not however a “tradition”, it was an aberration.

    • It could have been celebrated with a nice ham.

      Just saying.

        Next weekend is Ribfest. Anyone going on “Take your Muslim Friend to Ribfest” Day? No?

      It was a tradition in the same war that suttee was a tradition in India. The same way that offering ‘tribute’ (protection money) to muslim Barbary Pirates in the Mediterranean had become a tradition until President Thomas Jefferson ceased these payments.

    Yes, but you gotta be fair and give WaPo a chance. Rumour has it that WaPo has a follow-up article claiming that the Mayan Indians also celebrated Ramadan. Although the ancient Maya existed millennia before Mohammad was even a goat’s fart in the twinkle of his father’s eye, they probably won’t allow historical facts to get in the way of a good piece of Islamic propaganda.

      Next you are probably going to tell me that Jesus’s ‘Last Supper’ was also a Iftar dinner.

        You mean you hadn’t heard?

      • Passover……

    Obama kept holding up muslims as an oppressed group and “victims” .
    There were about 4 jihad slaughters during his reign which I pin on him from inciting them by the Apology Tours and identity Politics while CAIR has an open door to Obama and they posted hate-crimes that were 90% fabricated .

    I’m glad Trump refuses to affirm islam as a religion of peace while it is now on a Global jihad slaughter on top of 11 nation that sanction killing gays while 16 ban Jews of anyone from israel .
    The 2-faced Imams loved having their House-Negro and islamophile to aid in destroying the USA from within.

    btw
    Obama’s speeches about the 1% and those with wealth that don’t share it.
    He got a $70 million book deal , bought 4 mansions where the last one was $8.2 million, plus he partied on a fuel-eating monster yacht worth $500+ million .
    Those poor suckers that bought his snake- oil and voted for him….twice .

      Those poor suckers got what they deserved, it’s the rest of us that suffered.

    btw
    Last year at PRIDE I found out that about 50% of Justin’s muslim MP’s didn’t march with him .
    Since it’s close to the end of Ramadan as the holy month ( more jihad than the 11 months) I’d like to see how many muslims MP’s were there this years.

    Justin wanted votes and didn’t care if the Muslim in that MP Seat was a homophobic jew-hater wanting the Caliphate for Canada. Now he has Muslim MP’s pushing for sharia and open borders to flood us with jihadists from the USA .

    Wapo wrong again – T Jefferson celebrated Ramen – noodle day.

    Breitbart: “The often-used claim that Thomas Jefferson held the first Iftar dinner at the White House was trotted out by the Post’s Wang.”

    I’ve never seen anyone trot out their wang.

    • Watchman

      You obviously weren’t at the Pride march, then.

      • Alain

        LOL

    Jefferson owned a koran because he wanted to understand America’s enemy, the Barbary pirates.

    • I used to have copies of Karl Marx’s “Communist Manifesto” and “Das Kapital” in my library. I think I also had Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” at one time. And I currently have an anti-Israel pro-Palestinian propaganda booklet sitting on my TV stand which I read recently — it’s called “Breaking the Silence”, published in Jerusalem by “Shovrim Shtika”.

      For the same reason as Jefferson — you can’t defeat a dangerous ideology if you don’t even understand what the hell it is.

      • “Shovrim Shtika” is Hebrew for “Breaking the Silence”,
        an ugly Jew Hating group in any language.

    That would be the same Tom Jefferson who was president the first time that the US was at war with Islam?

    Historical revisionism is one of the critical theory tools of the mendacious cultural Marxists

    Islam is nothing to celebrate. Those people are a pestilence on the whole earth, and our current sworn enemy. Celebrating them would be coddling the enemy — like going to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner (–joke–).
