These are the nutjobs we are fighting and Obama is embracing!!!!

Ashura in New York...... scroll here for previous years of Ashura in NY and across the world. Gruesome.
Park Avenue, NYC: "Fight oppression" -- oh, the irony.
On an otherwise quiet Sunday morning, imagine our surprise when, in the driving rain, traffic was at a full stop. There was a sea of black burkas and coffins -- yes, another shiny, happy Muslm parade.
Unsuspecting New Yorkers were descended upon with calls for prayer, dawah and prosyltizing to Islam. So we jumped out of the cab .......

Ashoura: Respect it!

We seek broader engagement based upon mutual interest and mutual respect. We will listen carefully, we will bridge misunderstanding, and we will seek common ground. We will be respectful even when we do not agree. Barrack Hussein

"The message is for all people," Baydoun said of Ashura. "It's about the universal cause of justice."
Detroit News has a piece entitled: Muslim holy day Ashura grows more popular worldwide
Just look at what these clowns are selling:
The traditions of Ashura -- a holy day Shi'ite Muslims will observe Sunday -- started in the Middle East and spread to Iran and South Asia, where they have been practiced for centuries. But in recent years, the ceremonies have become more popular in other parts of the world as populations of Shi'ite Muslims grow elsewhere.
From metro Detroit to Europe and Japan, some people cross national boundaries to commemorate the 10 days that lead up to Ashura.
Ashura commemorates the 7th-Century death of the grandson of Islam's prophet. Imam Hussain died in Karbalaa, Iraq, at the hands of an unjust ruler.
"It's about standing up for justice, standing up for democracy, standing up for peace and equality," Mohamed Al-Najjar explained at the Karbalaa Islamic Education Center in Dearborn. The center is named after the city in Iraq.

In this photo taken Wednesday, Dec. 23, 2009, a Santa Claus doll is seen at a shop in central Baghdad, Iraq. Christmas is coming at the same time this year as one of Islam's most solemn holidays so even among Iraq's Christians, Santa is suffering. In the southern Iraqi town of Basra, a local pastor has banned celebrations, decorations and other public displays of making merry out of respect for Ashoura, the annual Shiite period of mourning. In Baghdad, Iraq's capital, Christmas has gone underground.
