President Donald Trump wished the world's 1.6 billion Muslims a "joyful Ramadan" on Friday as they prepare to embrace the holy month.
"At its core, the spirit of Ramadan strengthens awareness of our shared obligation to reject violence, to pursue peace, and to give to those in need who are suffering from poverty or conflict," Trump said in a statement.
"I extend my best wishes to Muslims everywhere for a blessed month as you observe the Ramadan traditions of charity, fasting, and prayer. May God bless you and your families," he said.
In emphasizing the fight against terrorist groups, Trump said the recent attacks in Manchester, England, and Egypt are "acts of depravity that are directly contrary to the spirit of Ramadan.
"Such acts only steel our resolve to defeat the terrorists and their perverted ideology, he said.
His message comes on the heels of another legal defeat for Trump's travel ban that many, including American judges, have concluded is an unconstitutional Muslim ban.
The executive order, a "watered-down version of the first one" by Trump's admission, would stop new visas being issued to residents of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for at least 90 days. It excludes Iraq, named in an original version that was signed one week into Trumps presidency.
It also suspends the nations refugee program for 120 days.
Muslims are required to abstain from food, drink, smoking and sex during the daylight hours of the holy month, which shifts from year to year on the lunar calendar. It begins on Friday evening for most Muslims.
Trump neeed to wish them a Jihad-free RamaLamaDingDong.
And buy them a modern calendar better synched to the solar year.
I wish them ruptured appendixes.
I would wish them that with a nuke over mecca.
How about. “One more terrorist attack and we nuke Medina to show you we are serious. Once again and we nuke Mecca. Third time we turn every muslim majority country into glass.”
That’s what he should say, and follow through.
I'd go with mecca first, but that's just me :-)
Sooner or later; this country and its people are going to pay DEARLY for embracing these savages.

I was always vacilating between center out vs. perimeter in.
Now it is clear that the only Stratergy is center out. Let them wither on the vine.
Ramadan is a preparation for and celebration of jihad, and a celebration of jihadis who’ve committed jihad in the name of islam. It is anti-Christian and anti-civilization.
May God bless you and your families,” he said.
I guess wishing them a quick and merciful death would not be PC. The merciful part is really generous, after all.
Rmadan is usually a blast...
“Rmadan is usually a blast...”
You Betcha It’s Da Bomb!
We already are!
In other words, islam itself.
The majority don’t know the filth written in their own Koran. They were born into it. Especially 2nd and 3rd generation American Muslims who are westernized.
But to let rabid followers into the country from their own 400 AD mindset is unconscionable. The judges who defy the travel ban needs to be forced to live with them in a permanent intimate sharia setting.
