I think it's meant as a joke, but it's still pretty good:

salaam

haha

But just to make it clear that he did send real greetings of Eid Mubarak to the Muslims from him and his wife and Joe Biden and his wife. .. I saw it in MuslimsforObama.com  long ago but I cant find where its on that site. If anyones interested they can search the site.

Another thing I want to make clear is that Obama DID say that calling him Muslim as if it is a bad thing suggests fear mongering. He DID say this twice. I know one of the times I read it from CAIR (how they catch the articles) He may have said it more but I know he did say it twice. The fact that a presidential candidate aknowledges there is fear mongering going on, I think is a huge thing and very important.

I found it. Here is the statement he issued the day of Eid:

I want to convey my greetings to the American Muslim community on the Festival of Breaking the Fast that marks the end of Ramadan.  Through fasting, prayer and charity, your observance this past month of the universal values of patience, generosity and caring for the less fortunate is an important reminder of the values that have helped make America great.  As a nation, we must commit ourselves to that greater cause to ensure that the less fortunate are never forgotten or ignored.  On behalf of Michelle, Joe and Jill Biden and I, we hope that Ramadan brought you happiness, good health, and a sense of renewal.

since Nuh seemed interested in the other one I though Id go ahead and post where Obama said that calling him Muslim as if its a bad thing suggests 'fear mongering'

here is his quote:

Asked where this is coming from, Obama told Kroft, “You know, this has been a systematic e-mail smear campaign that's been goin' on since actually very early in this campaign. It clearly is a deliberate effort by some group or somebody to generate this rumor. I have never been a Muslim, am not a Muslim. These e-mails are obviously not just offensive to me, somebody who's a devout Christian who's been goin' to the same church for the last 20 years, but it's also offensive to Muslims. Because it plays into, obviously, a certain fear-mongering there”

here is the link, he said this on 60 minutes

wow.  I'm no Republican but the man is a master of words.  All he really said was "Muslims find this offensive".  Good for you Obama.  You noticed that we're upset and managed to point it out without really having to take a stand for what's right.
