The Muslim ceremony of Ramadan began Friday for millions of the Islamic faith around the world, and though it may come as a surprise to someone who believes the media lies about President, Donald Trump wished a happy and joyous Ramadan to all who celebrate.
Anyhow Trump’s statement wasn’t all cheerful like the previous statements from the prior White House occupants. He also criticizes those who were using the faith to encourage acts of terrorism.
First he said, “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.”
“This year, the holiday begins as the world mourns the innocent victims of barbaric terrorist attacks in the United Kingdom and Egypt, acts of depravity that are directly contrary to the spirit of Ramadan,” Trump stated. “Such acts only steel our resolve to defeat the terrorists and their perverted ideology.”
Trump talked about his recent encounter with more than 50 leaders of the Islamic world while in Saudi Arabia, and said that they all agreed to work together to ensure “peace, security and prosperity for our countries and for the world.”
“I reiterate my message delivered in Riyadh: America will always stand with our partners against terrorism and the ideology that fuels it,” Trump stated.
“During this month of Ramadan, let us be resolved to spare no measure so that we may ensure that future generations will be free of this scourge and able to worship and commune in peace.”
He ended his statement by wishing a peaceful and blessed month to all the Muslims around the world, saying “May God bless you and your families.”
This message is so powerful that should be heard more often from the White House, having in mind that nobody has said something like this for eight years even more.
Even though Trump wished for blessed peace for all, he also noted that a treats to the society will not be tolerated anymore, and he wasn’t afraid to acknowledge that.
