US embassy MOVES FOURTH OF JULY to avoid offending Muslims and observe Ramadan

Can you believe this crap? This elevates Islam above America’s founding and our Declaration of Independence. Lifson is right… this is a deep, deep moment of shame for the US and just screams dhimmitude. Then to throw in the scam of climate change in as well, is just an additional slap in the face to America. That embassy is technically American soil. We are bowing to a foreign nation and putting a religious holiday above the very founding of our nation. It’s a betrayal of the faith and trust of the Americans they claim to represent… it is a betrayal of our culture.


In a move than perfectly embodies President Obama’s doctrine on foreign policy, the United States Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia celebrated America’s independence a full month early.

To avoid offending Muslims.

The embassy celebrated the 4th of July on June 4 out of respect for the upcoming Ramadan month, which lasts from June 17 through July 17, according to the Jakarta Post.

Observance of Ramadan, one of the Five Pillars of Islam, requires fasting by Muslims from dawn to sunset.

The U.S. Ambassador, Robert Blake, held festivities at his residence in Central Jakarta on Thursday, the Post reported.

“Democracy is an American value which we have championed since 1776,” Blake told those in attendance.

Since July, 4, 1776, to be exact.

Thomas Lifson, editor and publisher of American Thinker, noted Sunday in a column on the rescheduled holiday that embassies “are the national territory of the country being represented, not of the host country.”

“This is a moment of national dhimmitude and deep shame,” Lifson wrote.

“I hope someone will ask Marie Harf to explain if any Muslim countries plan on moving their embassy’s Ramadan celebrations to accommodate our Independence Day,” he added.

And while red, white and blue is traditionally the order of the day, Thursday’s celebration took on a “green” theme, in support of a green economy and more environmentally sustainable development.

On a positive note, “The Star Spangled Banner” is still allowed to be played at the embassy.

This places a respect for savagery over a respect for civilized liberty. The orders from this came directly from the White House, I’m sure. What do you want to bet, they came from Valerie Jarrett? We have never done this before that I know of. I don’t see us rescheduling our holidays for other religions or even for tragedies. So why would we do it for Ramadan? It is an attempt to make us subservient to a religious philosophy – a theological doctrine. Americans do not kneel before Allah and the Fourth of July is one of our most, if not THE most important holiday we have as a nation. Only second to our Christian holidays, which Obama would do away with too if he could. I would say that Obama has forgotten the face of his father, but the opposite could be true. I think he remembers it all too well.
