In wake of OK jihad beheading, Obama sends a thank you to Muslims in OK at their mosque

Wait, what?  This time, your incredulous reaction is justified.  A top White House official went to the mosque where Jah'Kee Yisrael worshipped, thanking local Muslims for their support, tolerance, bridge-building and multi-cultural understanding.  No mention of the Islamic underpinnings Yah'Keem Yisrael showed on his Facebook page, no mention of the Islamic imperitive to "...strike their necks..." (47-4) or any acknowledgement that Islamic doctrine drove Yah'Keem Yisrael (in his own words) to behead one co-worker and attempt a second.

Of course no mention, as that would call into question the WH position that Islam is a religion of peace.  Beheadings are too horrible to contemplate so they are summarily dismissed as a way to not think about something so horrible.  Simple psychological survival, but useless in trying to understand what has really happened.  Reminds me of the blindness of some Germans as to the concentration camps and how they refused to see what was right in front of them.

Oklahoma Muslims receive special praise from White House officials

OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma Muslims marked the end of the yearly pilgrimage to mecca with communal prayer and celebration called Eid Ul-Adha on Saturday.

Leaders of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City say it’s been a tough month for Muslims here in Oklahoma after being associated with the beheading at Vaughan foods in Moore.

Leaders of the faith here in the state say vicious messages are being left for Oklahoma Muslims, telling them to get out of Oklahoma and threatening to behead them all because the man behind the beheading claimed to be Muslim.

But the Muslim community received the highest form of praise from the White House for their hard work in helping rebuild the Moore community after a destructive tornado tore through the city in 2013.

Today, an official from Washington D.C. flew in to Oklahoma to present a special thank you to the Muslim congregation.

He read a message from President Barrack Obama, extending warm greetings from the American people during the Muslim holiday.

“Your service is a powerful example of the powerful roots of the Abrahamic faiths and how our communities can come together with shared peace with dignity and a sense of justice,” President Barack Obama said.

The Imam, the leader of the prayer service, stated during his sermon that the Muslim faith has been called a “cancer that needs to be cut off from the American society.”

Now, with the recent praise, Oklahoma Muslims have been reassured that they are apart of the American society.
