The estimated 832 deaths and 912 injuries from the estimated 60 attacks that have taken place across about 19 countries during the first 12 days of this year’s holy Muslim month of Ramadan have already marked the bloodiest Ramadan in recent years for adherents of Islam.
Jihadists believe martyrdom is doubly rewarded in paradise during Ramadan. Jihadist groups encourage martyrdom among their sympathizers and followers, promoting the belief that they will be doubly rewarded if they fatally castigate infidels during Ramadan. The holy month this year is on track to surpass the deadliest and bloodiest Ramadan in the modern record: Ramadan 2016.
Ramadan 2016 featured 1,150 casualties – both death and injuries. This year, terrorists – namely the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), Taliban, and al-Qaeda, among other jihadists – have already killed or wounded more than 1,500 people across about 15 countries and there are still about 20 days left in the month.
During the first 12 days of Ramadan 2017 period, there have been an estimated 60 terror attacks carried out in the name of Allah (by Islamic extremists) resulting in the death of 832 people and injury of 912.

We have watched President Obama honor plenty of fallen Americans, but the majority of them just happen to be crooks, thieves, illegal aliens or followers of Islam! What happened to honoring our fallen Military? The men and women who fight for our freedoms. What happened to honoring our fallen citizens? The hard-working Americans who have been killed as a result of our own President’s failed policies or his refusal to follow our rule of law?
President Obama wasted no time in shining the rainbow lights on the White House, at taxpayer’s expense, after the Supreme Court ruled on Gay marriage. Yet crosses around the country are being torn down in the name of political correctness and personal feelings. The confederate flag has been under attack by the left and the administration as a symbol of hatred, yet symbols celebrating Islam have become more prominent, while Islamic terrorists continue to behead, imprison, drown and burn innocents, while raping young girls, threatening to murder gays, Jews and Christians, setting dogs on fire and laughing while they torture and murder babies and children. Does Islam not represent hatred and disdain for all citizens of the world? Then why does our President continue to celebrate it?

I often tell folks that when tolerance becomes a one-way street, it leads to cultural suicide. I have no problem respecting others, but it MUST be a two-way exchange. Recently, we learned of the U.S. ambassador in Indonesia who made the decision – or someone did – to change the 4th of July celebration at the embassy to 4th of June. This was done to respect Ramadan. Needless to say, the ambassador has forgotten that an embassy is sovereign U.S. territory and all festivities easily could have been done after sunset – you know, fireworks, hot dogs, hamburgers and such.
And now our men and women serving in the Middle East have received a reminder about respecting Ramadan. As reported in the Weekly Standard:
Our Indonesian-at-heart president had the U.S. embassy in Indonesia celebrate Independence Day a month early on June 4th out of respect for Ramadan. Our embassy is considered U.S. territory – it’s a sovereign entity – but Obama is a foreigner at heart.
He wasn’t brought up as a typical American. His years in Indonesia combined with his communist background led us to where we are today with a president who is literally destroying our Republic.
Independence Day is our most sacred holiday and to have our representatives in Indonesia act in a subservient manner is extremely insulting to the citizens of this country. Independence Day can’t be changed. It is July 4th.
Independence Day is a big deal in our embassies. Changing the day was a powerful statement.
I wonder if the Indonesian embassies in the United States will move Ramadan.
Do not eat or drink in front of Muslims, and learn more about their religion.
That’s the directive that has gone out to active duty military personnel at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, a Department of Defense medical and graduate school in Bethesda, Md.
The brigade commander sent an email to military personnel at the facility last month – just before the start of Ramadan – advising them to show respect to Muslim colleagues.

Amazing the Obama regime has made it official American policy to coddle up to these maniacs.
In an article published on the occasion of Ramadan on the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) website, MB member Hussein Shehata, a lecturer at Al-Azhar University, praises the jihad war against the Jews – “the descendants of apes and pigs” – in Palestine; against the Americans in Iraq; against the Russians in Chechnya; and against the Muslims’ enemies in Kashmir, Bosnia, Eritrea, and Somalia. He adds that the Day of Judgment will arrive when the Muslims defeat the Jews and liberate Jerusalem.
The following are excerpts from the article:
More delays in the trial at Guantanamo of the 9/11 plotters. This time, it’s to allow the defendants to observe the last 10 days of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month.

I understand that this dinner has been a tradition since Bill Clinton. However, why is that Obama never misses this event and during Christmas he is always off to Hawaii for vacation? He can’t seem to call it Easter or he will leave out words like Creator. Why? Will his tounge catch on fire or will his eyes start to bleed? And isn’t it strange that Michelle is off on a Secret Vacation at the time of this dinner?
President Barack Obama is hosting an Iftar dinner Wednesday evening to celebrate the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
The Iftar is the dinner that breaks the holiday’s daily fast. The dinner became an annual White House tradition under President Bill Clinton and was continued by President George W. Bush. The White House says invited guests include religious and grass-roots leaders in the Muslim-American community as well as leaders of other faiths and elected officials.
(CNSNews.com) – Former Army Gitmo prosecutor Kyndra Rotunda told CNSNews.com that some prisoners at Guantanamo Bay have asked to stay there in U.S. custody rather than be released to return to their home countries.
“Interestingly, some detainees were offered release, and asked to stay in Gitmo. They prefer captivity in Gitmo to freedom in their own countries!”
