This morning’s message from President Obama on Eid al-Adha, which began Monday evening and ends tonight:

Michelle and I extend our best wishes for a joyous Eid al-Adha to Muslims around the world and congratulate those performing the Hajj this year.  As our Muslim neighbors and friends gather for Eid celebrations, Muslim Americans are among the more than three million pilgrims joining one of the world’s largest and most diverse gatherings, which serves as a reminder of the shared roots of the world’s Abrahamic faiths.

To commemorate Eid al-Adha, Muslims around the world are joining other faith communities in offering their assistance to those suffering from hunger, disease, and conflict.  Their service is a powerful example of the positive role that faith can play in motivating communities to work together to address shared challenges.

On behalf of the American people, we extend our warmest greetings during this Hajj season.  Eid Mubarak and Hajj Mabrour.

How is worshiping my god of the Kaabba an Abrahamic faith? Abraham was never at the kaabba, and my god of the Kaabba is one of 360 gods at the Kaabba. Known to history as the god Sin whom Muhammad's Uncle was named after.

WTF over?

"[O]ne of the world's... most diverse gatherings"? Huh?! For the Love of Life Orchestra, how can an assembly that's 100% Muslim (or 100% anything) be "diverse"? They keep using that word...

Since the Hajj takes place in Mecca and non muslims aren't allowed in mecca how can it be diverse?

Still waiting on Obama's Yom Kippur and Rosh Hoshannah messages to the world.
