We don’t recall any Rosh HaShanah or Christmas greetings from the Department of Homeland Security. But, hey, those ain’t the holidays of terrorists.
And in our country, those who are supposed to be protecting us feel it’s their job to wish the religion of the 19 hijackers a Happy End of Ramadan. That’s why the Department of Homeland Security and the Greater Saudi satellite state’s Embassy–the Embassy of Great Britain–co-hosted a Ramadan Iftar Dinner feast, last week, toward the end of Ramadan.
Gee, why didn’t I get Chertoff at my Yom Kippur “Break Fast”? Oh, I forgot. My people didn’t perform such great feats as flying planes into buildings and Pennsylvania ground, or blow up Marine Barracks, or bomb a disco, or even blow up a ship. And, therefore, we don’t deserve the ambience of having such officials as Homeland Security’s own tax-paid professional apologist for the jihad, Daniel Sutherland, slapping our backs. You, too, Christian America. Don’t watch for Sutherland to be at your Christmas Dinner. Atheists, DHS doesn’t pander to you, either. Start Atheist Jihad, and maybe they’ll start courting you with a Festivus Feast.
Below are more of the details that some DHS agents sent us (a shortened, sanitized version is on the DHS site):
DHS Co-hosts Event Celebrating Ramadan; Training Video to be Distributed to Employees
DHS and the British Embassy last week co-hosted an interagency Iftaar reception in celebration of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month.
Guests included leaders from the American Muslim community and senior officials from federal agencies, including DHS Officer for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Daniel Sutherland, Under Secretary for Science and Technology Jay Cohen, and Deputy Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services Alex Azar. Also in attendance was Dr. Akbar Ahmed from American University , who is a leading authority on Muslim-American relations.
In prepared remarks, Sutherland said a new training video explaining the basics about Arab and Muslim culture would be distributed to DHS employees. The video has two purposes, Sutherland said. “First, it will educate our employees, so that they can do a more effective job when they interact with travelers from the Arab and Muslim world. Second, we hope that it will demonstrate that we are taking seriously the goal of increasing the government’s level of expertise and engagement on these critical topics.”
More like increase the government’s level of capitulation.
For the record, Akbar Ahmed went on Oprah after 9/11 and told the world that honor killing has nothing to do with Islam. That’s why it takes place in the Islamic–not Jewish and Christian–world, every day. Notice they don’t tell you who the rest of the American Muslim guests in attendance were. Hiding something, Mr. Sutherland? You can bet that Sutherland guypal, sham marriage participant, and “former” Islamic terrorist Imad Hamad was invited, as were some of his fellow pro-jihad ADC cohorts.
If the other guests are like the usual company the guy keeps–“former” Islamic terrorists, Hezbollah agents, and lawyers of terrorist money-launding charities–we can see why the guest list is under wraps from a public that “just wouldn’t understand.”
As for the video, we saw the last one Sutherland and DHS passed out, and we predict the new one is par for the course. The last one was produced by open supporters of Islamic terrorism, and featured Najah Bazzy, who said, “I’m embarrassed to be an American,” on the tape as one of the great, regular Muslim Americans. (She’s a third-generation “American,” FYI. We’re embarrassed you’re an American too, Najah.)
One DHS agent said to us, “Pray For Our Country.” Unfortunately, it appears we’re way past prayers. Unless it’s the Last Rites he’s talking about.
