The American-Arab-Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) asked all its members to boycott the upcoming White House Iftar dinner, the traditional Muslim meal to break the fast during the holy month of Ramadan. The ADC cited the Obama administration's continued support of Israeli airstrikes on Gaza as well as evidence they had spied on prominent Muslim leaders as a reason for protesting the event.

(You can't always have it both ways)

The modern day custom of celebrating Ramadan in the White House was started in 1996 by Hillary Rodham Clinton during the three-day celebration Eid-al-Fitr.

(well that explains it)


Meanwhile in Israel.....

AZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Israel on Wednesday intensified air attacks on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip following a failed Egyptian cease-fire effort, targeting the homes of four senior leaders of the Islamic militant movement. It also told tens of thousands of residents to leave Gaza's border areas ahead of more strikes.

The Palestinian death toll in nine days of fighting rose to 204, with some 1,450 wounded, Palestinian health officials said. On the Israeli side, one man was killed and several people were wounded since the fighting erupted on July 8.


Seriously this gets crazier by the day.

Oh please we give BILLIONS to 'Palestine'.

I guess you really can't have it both ways.

Guess we paid for those attacks on Israel.

US gives money to Hamas who buys them from Iran.

Us gives money to them evil Israeli's who makes better stuff than we sell them.

The IMI makes some of the best weapons of the world.

As to Clinton starting the White House ramadans ?
