Treasury Issues Statement Marking the Beginning of Ramadan (Presumably aimed at the Muslims the U.S. is not bombing)

The full statement follows:

WASHINGTON – As Muslims in the United States and around the world begin their observance of Ramadan, the U.S. Department of the Treasury recognizes the importance of this period of intense devotion, reflection and charitable giving. Charitable giving and philanthropy are core American values, reflected in many faiths and traditions, and are of particular significance within the Muslim faith during the holy month of Ramadan.

The Treasury Department fully supports the ability of American Muslims – and Muslims worldwide – to fulfill their religious obligations through charitable giving and seeks to advance charitable giving at home and abroad, while protecting the charitable sector from the threat posed by those who seek to abuse this sacred obligation. In recent years, Treasury has strengthened its partnership with the charitable sector and donor community to promote transparency and to safeguard against such abuse.

The Treasury Department will continue to work closely with the charitable sector and Muslim American communities to promote our common goals of safe and effective charitable activity and to protect the sector from exploitation by terrorist organizations. We look forward to the continued development of this partnership.


  1. Dear Mr. Wenzel,

    Thank you for pointing out an embarrassing clerical error. We have corrected our mistake and, beginning tomorrow, you can rest assured that the US will be bombing ALL Muslim people going forward.

    -Your friends at the United States Federal Government

  2. Hey spooky scary Muslims, us folks here at Timmy's treasury love you, but check in with us before you make a donation to a Muslim NGO.
    We can't have this money going to any group that "hates us for our freedom".
    Enjoy your "freedom of worship" this Ramadan !

  3. Ha ha! I have a joke.

    An imam, a rabbi, and a priest walk into Mecca.

    Only the imam walks out because the rabbi and the priest are beheaded because infidels aren't allowed in Mecca.


    Muslims really do slaughter people of other relgions for the crime of being of another religion. Before the Israelis turned Bethlehem over to the PA, it was 85% Christian. Now, it's less than 15% Christian - and the numbers of inflow into Israel don't make up the difference. There were 100,000 Jews in Baghdad before the British left. When we rolled in in 2003, there were 2.

    Stuff the "freedom of religion" crap. Muslims worship freely here and throughout the west. That is, to put it kindly, not reciprocated in Muslim countries. The Holy Land Foundation really did fund suicide bombers in Israel.

    There is nothing about being a libertarian that requires that you delude yourself into thinking Muslims are the victim or that they're being oppressed in the west. Not when there's real evil going on.

  4. Imagine if such a statement was made recognizing Christian charity during the Christmas holiday season.

    There would be massive outrage.

    Welcome to the Animal Farm world where "tolerance" and "diversity" are preached.
